i'm not going to vote, because I do on my car, but never on electronics.

I think that it is a sign of the quality of items now a days, It never use to be an option, because everything was made of better quality. Now they want to sell you an additional warranty, just another way to suck more money out of the consumer....

Auto yes, electronics no. I have had good luck with the extended warranties on more than 1 car. Of course, if they built them better----

Anyone know where we can find Skinny? Sounds like he has a ton of money (around his mid section.)

The only insurance policy I used for electronics is the one for my cell phone. It has paid for itself multiple times.

I think the only bigger rip off is the "rebates" you get on certain products, rebates that never show up. Those are so bad that some stores will only give in-store discounts and avoid the rebates because they look bad when the weasels don't honor them.

I thought twice about it when I bought a Honda Accord about 8 years ago... I figured since it was a Honda I was safe... well I went ahead and bought the extended warranty... good thing, when the tranny went out at 86k miles even after subtracting the cost of the warranty I saved $4000. In general I take my chances, but with big ticket items I have to think twice. Since that time i put nothing but tires and brakes on it and I sold the car with over 250,000 miles on it and it was still running strong...
