Warranty Steps

Our Famous Product Guarantees
Tupperware Warranty

Our products have been proudly backed by our famous Tupperware and Q (Quality) Guarantees for more than 50 years, so you can buy with confidence.

Our guarantees cover customers to a level above and beyond traditional guarantees.

Tupperware Brand products are guaranteed by Tupperware New Zealand and/or its parent company, Tupperware Brands Inc., to the original owner, to be free of manufacturing defects and to perform under normal domestic conditions for the lifetime of the product*.

Our goods come with additional guarantees that cannot be excluded under New Zealand Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

Our guarantees do not cover reasonable wear and tear through normal use, or the misuse, abuse or alteration of products. Only the original owner of the product is covered by our guarantees.

Warranty Guide
Where do I send my warranty items?
Warranty Form

ALL WARRANTY CLAIM ITEMS MUST BE SENT IN FOR ASSESSMENT. Photos are not sufficient to complete a warranty as they can be altered, or resubmitted.

You can however, send a photo and query if you are unsure if something is claimable.

After completing this page you will be redirected to a page where you can print out a submission form and return address label. This email contains a QR which allows us to notify you when your parcel arrives.

In normal times, warranty claims must be received at the warehouse within 21 working days of submitting your claim. During lockdown the 21 days is waived.

Full replacement of complete items may be applicable to claims where proof of original ownership is established.

Definition of Replacement: Items are not returned if a replacement or points have been issued. Items need to be taken out of circulation. We recycle all declined items that can be processed.

Replacement value without proof of purchase is determined using guidelines by our experienced warranty team.
Previous AUS based warranty system questions
All items claimed from the old AUS based systems have been sent out. Any open claims with outstanding items were awaiting those products to be sent in before they could be assessed and are now closed.
I want to claim an item, how do I start and who can I talk to?
All warranty claims must be sent in, only the warranty team is qualified to advise on whether something is covered or not. You will have the opportunity to view a gallery of items that have been declined so you can assess whether your item may be accepted/approved or declined under warranty. Start your claim

Tupperware original warranty covers manufacturing defects for the useable lifetime of the product. Note that wear and tear (wearing out through use) of a product over its lifetime is not deemed a manufacturing defect.

Warranty items may take 4 weeks to reach our Auckland warehouse via courier/post while COVID rules are in place. We cannot give updates on claim parcels while in transit but always notify claimants via email when they are received.

Step 2 is sending your items in. Step 3 is receiving a notification when your parcel arrives. Step 4 is going through checkout using credit to select your replacement item.
