Get a Mulberry warranty for 12 months of free accident protection!
There’s a new way to protect your purchases. 🔒
I’ll be the first to admit that I almost always pass on protection plans and warranties for my purchases. That’s not because I don’t want them, but because they’re usually too pricey in my opinion.
If I’m already shelling out a lot of cash for an item, the last thing I want is to spend even more on a protection plan that, realistically, I may never even use.
But if the protection plan is free? You can bet I’ll be taking advantage of that–especially during the holidays! And with the Mulberry extension, you can get a free 12-month protection plan worth up to $135 for almost anything you buy online! 😱
I know you’re thinking this seems too good to be true…
I was certainly giving Mulberry the full inspection before downloading because as they say, “nothing in life is free.” 😆 But in this case, that saying thankfully doesn’t hold up.
Mulberry’s 12-month protection plans are, indeed, 100% FREE!
They provide an option to extend your protection for longer, but you will have to pay a bit if you opt for that. In fact, by offering paid warranty extensions (which are a popular option among customers), Mulberry has the capability to provide their signature free 12-month plans. It’s a win-win for everyone!
However, I think 12 months is a really generous length of time to offer free protection. There’s no risk or downside to getting the Mulberry extension, and I’ve also been really impressed with the variety of eligible items!
Mulberry offers totally free accident protection, so if anything happens to your purchase you’ll still be covered.
We’re talking cracked screens, spills & stains on the couch, broken zippers & jewelry clasps, and any of the other 1000 ways we can accidentally damage our purchases.
Mulberry’s customer service is also top-notch, and they’re more than willing to walk you through the steps should you need to use that plan.
With the holidays coming up, there’s no better time to score some extra peace of mind!
Mulberry doesn’t just offer plans for tech and electronics items. They’ll cover a surprisingly wide range of purchases from furniture to jewelry to clothing and more, so chances are those Christmas presents you’ve got your eye on will be eligible for coverage. 🙌
It’s also a great option when it comes to getting gifts for kiddos who aren’t always the gentlest when it comes to their toys.
Hip Tip: Speaking of gifts, have you ever heard of the 4 Gift Rule? It’s a wonderful way to make the holidays less financially stressful & prevent unnecessary waste!
And believe it or not, they even cover some items from smaller/individual sellers!
If you love visiting sites like Etsy for personal or custom-made goods, you’ll be thrilled to hear that Mulberry’s protection plans are compatible with many of those items as well!
Even though Mulberry can be used at over 5,000 online retailers, I didn’t realize that they also included some independent sellers. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it does!
The Mulberry warranty extension is easy to use & checks item eligibility in seconds.
Here’s a quick rundown on how to install & use the Mulberry extension:
- To start, you’ll want to open (or download) the Google Chrome web browser.
- Then, head over to Mulberry’s extension download page.
- Select “Add to Chrome.” You’ll be taken to the Chrome Web Store page, so just hit “install” to finish the download.
- Next, you’ll want to pin it to your Chrome Extensions toolbar. Click that little icon that looks like a puzzle piece, find the Mulberry button, and click the pin button. It’ll become blue once it’s pinned and you’ll see Mulberry’s “M” icon in the top right.
Now you’re ready to start using it!
Just visit a webpage with an item you’d like to buy (I was checking out this team-favorite Revlon Hair Dryer in the above photo), click the “M” icon, enter the item name and price, and Mulberry will tell you whether or not it’s eligible for protection. It’s super simple!
After you’ve decided to get a plan, you’ll need to make a Mulberry profile, but that only takes a minute or two.
There are a few limitations to a Mulberry warranty.
First, Mulberry’s warranties & protection services are only offered for items worth $2500 or less. I personally don’t find this to be an issue since making purchases that large is really rare for me. It’s also only applicable to purchases made online, but again, that’s totally fine with me since I’m an online shopper anyway (even my groceries get ordered online for pickup 😆).
Unfortunately, Mulberry isn’t available on mobile, and that aspect does bum me out a little since I do the majority of my shopping through my phone. But as long as I remember to bookmark the items I want to check, that problem is solved.
Other than those minor inconveniences, I really can’t think of a single downside to using Mulberry.
I’m always on the lookout for drawbacks because as much as I may like a product, I also like to keep it real, and chances are it’s not perfect.
In this case, though, I genuinely think the Mulberry extension is something everyone can benefit from whether you typically get product protection or not, especially as you’re scooping up deals during seasonal sales or gifts for your loved ones!
