    Are care-plans and extended warranties worth the money ?

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 01 Aug 2017, 11:38 am

    Buying an extended warranty or other forms of protection can add considerable cost to a purchase but could bring relatively little benefit beyond the rights you already have.

    For some people the peace of mind of an extra policy is worth it, but consumer law already provides considerable protection if you are sold faulty goods.

    So before buying an extended warranty or other forms of protection to cover the costs of any repairs to a new product, it is worth considering the benefit against the costs.

    Get some good advice on this subject from The BBCHERE




    I don't know about you guys but I ALWAYS refuse the offer of extended warranties for any major item I purchase.

    What say you ?

    Extended warranties are just about as bad as PPI and I think we might find that there will be a lot of claims against extended warranties in the future too.

    Yes, I too would not be surprised if eventually we see claims being made against these questionable warranties.

    I don't bother with Store's extended warranties, but I would be amenable to ones which might be offered by the manufacturer.

    The problem is HG, that it is the manufacturers extended warranties that are ripping us off with expensive promises, as their extended warranties are not for free.

    It is that point that drives me away from extended warranties, and little else.
