Extended Warranty

Recommended Posts

Hey, that's not funny. I've been there myself! Radio Shack, Compusa, J&R computer world, Gamestop (if they could get away with it, they probably start offering extended warranties on games next) etc.... It's getting to a point where I'm going to have a shirt made with the print "NO EXTENDED WARRANTIES PLEASE. NOW GO AWAY!" before I go shopping for electronics.

I NEVER, pay for an EXTENDED warranty. I have found, that: USUALLY, if the product last through the it's INITIAL warranty period, it will probably last 20 years. If not?...I throw it on a shelf, in the shop and it sits there... until I either fix it, or scrap it for parts

There are still some things you should get a warranty for. For instance:

1) Cars

2) Canon GL2 (or other misc expensive video equipment)

3) Playstation 2 (It *will* break. More than once.)

3) Non home-built computers

Best Buy's warranties are pretty good. If worse comes to worse you sabotage the stuff and take advantage of the no-lemon policy. BING! Instant free upgrade!

On the other hand, there are places where you just shouldnt be shopping, let alone buying a warranty from them. These include:

1) Electronics Boutique (Warranties cover everything, but only work 1 time)

2) Komp USSR [Comp USA]

3) Circuit $#!++y [Circuit City]

4) GameStop

5) Games4Less

6) Any other specialty game store

Good places include:

1) Fried Electronics [Fry's]

2) Busted Buy [best Buy]

3) MicroCenter

4) NewEgg.com

5) MWave.com
