Pretty much ever time you go to a electronics or appliance store and you buy something, the sales man/woman will always ask you if you want to buy an extended warranty for usually a lot of money. I always reply, Why would I want to do that? Are you saying that what Im buying here is junk and will break? Maybe I should put it back and go somewhere else. That usually shuts them up.
IMO when you buy something and its defected, it will show up right away and thats usually covered under the factorys warranty. After a year or two if nothing has happened, chances are nothing will unless its from physical abuse. And even then if you had an extended warranty, it probably wouldn’t cover that anyway because it doesn’t cover physical abuse or mistreatment
The sales people are under pressure from management to try and sell extended warranties because thats just another way of making money. How do you think they pay for their Christmas parties? 😀
