Yes, Samsung offers extended warranties for most of their appliances. If you purchase the appliance online, you’ll see the suggested extended warranty on the side of the checkout bar for the appliance – it’s called Samsung Care+. Samsung boasts three main benefits of the warranty:
- Protection for mechanical and electrical breakdown
- Coverage after the limited warranty expires
- 24/7 support for troubleshooting and repairs
The warranty offers good coverage but has one major downside – the price. Samsung’s extended warranties are incredibly expensive. For example, for a $259 microwave, Samsung's warranty costs $74.99 for three years of coverage. In contrast, a warranty from Upsie for the same microwave costs just $47.99 for three years. This means that you save 35.8% when you purchase from Upsie instead.
Another example is Samsung’s warranty for the $1,777 refrigerator. For three years of coverage, the warranty costs $159.99, while Upsie’s three-year warranty for the same refrigerator costs $128.99. Unlike Samsung, Upsie also offers a five-year extended warranty option for $249.99.
So although Samsung offers extended warranties for appliances, they aren’t the best option. You can save up to 70% when you purchase your extended warranty from Upsie instead.
