The Amazon.com Credit Card’s extended warranty adds up to one year to U.S. manufacturers’ warranties of 3 years or less. To be covered, you must use your Amazon.com Credit Card to pay for your eligible item. The coverage amount is $10,000 per claim and $50,000 per account.
Here’s how the Amazon.com Credit Card extended warranty works:
- Overview: The extended warranty policy will increase the original manufacturer’s warranty by up to 12 months for warranties of 3 years or less. The coverage begins when the manufacturer’s warranty expires.
- How much is covered: The extended warranty coverage will pay for repairs or replacements of eligible items for no more than the original purchase price. The maximum payout is $10,000 per item and $50,000 per account.
- What is covered: The policy will cover eligible purchases made with your Amazon.com Credit Card that come with a manufacturer’s warranty.
- What is not covered: Excluded items include motorized vehicles, medical equipment, computer software, and items that do not come with a manufacturer’s warranty, among other things.
- How to file a claim: Call the Benefit Administrator at (800) 874-7702 within 90 days of the incident to request a claim form. Then, return the completed claim form along with any required documents within 120 days of the product failure. You can also submit a claim form online.
The Amazon.com Credit Card’s extended warranty coverage is secondary to any other extended warranty you might have on an item. So, you must make a claim with the primary source first.
Ultimately, keep in mind that exclusions and coverage limits may apply to this benefit. So, make sure to check your Amazon.com Credit Card’s guide to benefits for more details.
