In my opinion, I don’t think you need the extra warranty and I’ve been taken with them many times. I think maybe for small things or when you’re only paying 20 bucks or something it “may” be worth it but I either can’t find it or it works okay and god help me if I needed to find it because there’s no warranty folder in this house. I know I did get one for the kids DS’s I got them last year but they were only $20 and these were for kids so I took the chance and here they sit. Never used. Had I not got them, I’d have needed them. Right???
When I got my first laptop I was all careful and I did the extra warranty on it. I thought it was very expensive too. It was a little over $100. I cracked my screen being very UN-careful and I was so happy to take it in and wouldn’t you know, it didn’t cover that. Seriously. To have that screen fixed would have cost more than a new laptop and as I was being “rung up” with my new laptop the guy asked me if I wanted the extended coverage and I asked him “what for” after what I’d just gone through. That was the last time I bought any. For me to have the coverage to fix a screen, it was the cost of a new laptop so I wonder why would anyone buy it? He told me I’d be able to break that laptop anyway I wanted and it would be covered but I could have 2 laptops for that price. HUH???
So, in your experience, has an extended warranty worked for you? Do you buy them or does it depend on what it is?
