Home Warranty and Electrical Parts
Home Warranties and What They Do and Don’t Cover – I highly recommend home inspections before a prospective buyer proceeds with the purchase of a home so that the condition of the home and the important system components have been identified and addressed 0if needed before the home purchase.
Will a Home Warranty Cover Loose Outlets?
Home Wiring Question: My electrical outlets are loose (meaning nothing I plug stays in).
I have a home warranty plan that covers outlet failure.
I was wondering if this will cover the repair of a loose outlet.

I would think that outlet failure would refer to the availability of electrical power to the outlet.
What you are referring to is the tension strength of the outlet which may be considered normal wear and tare, but that is speculation which may depend on the age of the home etc..

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
