Greenbacks Cash Option - Home Protection Plus

GreenBacks Cash Option

Get up to $2,500 per year to replace appliances that are beyond repair.

Aging appliances need GreenBacks Cash Option protection.

Home Protection Plus plans cover repairs to your appliances. But what if your appliance can no longer be repaired? As your appliances get older, sometimes parts are no longer available. When that happens, instead of paying hundreds to replace your air conditioner, furnace or water heater, GreenBacks Cash Option protection pays you cash to help replace any appliances covered in your plan that can’t be fixed — up to $750 toward any new appliance, and up to $2,500 per year.

The GreenBacks Cash Option difference: cash to choose the appliances you want. While some protection plans offer replacement with a similar appliance, GreenBacks Cash Option puts the power of choice in your hands, in the form of cash reimbursement. So you can choose a similar appliance or upgrade to any brand you like, including newer models with the most up-to-date features. The table below shows the cash amount GreenBacks Cash Option pays you per appliance:

Appliance Covered If unrepairable, you
may receive up to:
Furnace $750
Boiler $750
Central A/C $750
Refrigerator $500
Water Heater (tank-type) $300
Range/Oven $300
Washing Machine $300
Clothes Dryer $300
Dishwasher $300
Chest or Upright Freezer $250
Cooktop $150
Microwave $125
