Register for a Walmart Product Care Plan by visiting Walmart.com and accessing the Product Care Plan page, choosing the product type and price range and then purchasing the plan with the product before completing the checkout process. It is also possible to buy protection plans in a Walmart store during the initial purchase, though some restrictions may apply for retroactive purchases, as of 2015.
Walmart Product Care Plans typically cover electronics that range from video game consoles and televisions or home appliances and hearing aides, with each product including its own segment of protection plan options. Customers shopping on Walmart.com are able to navigate to the appropriate care plans for a specific product by using the care plan selection tool, which requires users to choose the product category, product type, price range and condition to see to warranty types. After choosing from the available protection plan terms, often in the form of multiple years, the site loads the online listing for that warranty type.
Customers shopping in a physical Walmart store need to speak with a sales associate to find out about the different protection plans available for each product type. In both cases, customers pay for the protection plan during the purchase of the item in question, which requires the customer to register the plan and the product online. Some products may be eligible for protection with a plan purchased shortly after the date of sale.
