When looking at various insurance plans, you may want to learn about the Roomba warranty. When you purchase a Roomba smart vacuum or mop, you also get a manufacturer’s warranty that lasts 90 days provided by the company and another warranty that lasts two years provided by Allstate. These manufacturers’ warranties handle basic manufacturing errors, similar to a Keurig warranty.
Yes, Roomba offers a pair of manufacturer’s warranties when purchasing a new vacuum, which is not dissimilar to how many insurance plans for headphones work. The first limited warranty lasts 90 days and is provided by Roomba and parent company Amazon, while the second warranty lasts two years and is provided by long-time insurer Allstate. These warranties cover issues related to defective materials or shoddy workmanship, just like a standard TCL TV warranty.
Make sure to hold onto your proof of purchase, receipt, and warranty card (both digital and physical) just in case you need to redeem coverage.
Roomba automated vacuums are on the expensive side, and two years is not exactly a long time in the world of tech. On top of that, the warranties that ship with Roomba vacuums only cover manufacturing issues and do not offer any coverage for accidental damage, normal wear and tear, or even theft. Luckily, you have some options for adding coverage.
Amazon recently purchased Roomba, and though the fruits of this acquisition are still a bit murky, one clear benefit for consumers is that they can opt into Amazon’s robust suite of insurance and extended warranty products. At the point of purchase, if buying on Amazon, you will be given the option to wrap up an additional extended warranty or insurance plan. These vary in cost depending on the type of coverage and the product you are covering. Generally speaking, Amazon does offer plans for accidental damage, though not for theft.
There are also plenty of third-party insurers out there who are more than happy to provide extra coverage to your Roomba vacuum. You could always keep the fun going with Allstate and tack on an extra year or two or opt into a true insurance plan via companies like Progressive, Akko, Asurion, and more. The prices here vary depending on what type of plan you are looking for and which Roomba model you are covering. For theft coverage, look into the renter’s insurance or read the fine print to find a plan that covers this type of issue.
STAT: Roomba is a series of autonomous robotic vacuum cleaners made by the company iRobot. Introduced in September 2002, they have a set of sensors that enable them to navigate the floor area of a home. (source)
