All too many of those things that have offers of extended warranties are things that the average person can fix themselves. Now, a $34 sander is basically disposable. But take say, a modern flatscreen TV that you'd purchase for $400-800. For all intents and purposes, it's modular. and you can find virtually every one of the modules/circuit boards on fleabay. Commonly for about $20-50 each, depending on the model. I've done this very thing with my flatscreen, especially after it crapped out after a lightning strike on my apartment complex last year. Blew out the motherboard, which I replaced for $30 off of fleabay, and about 10 minutes of time.

Hell of a lot cheaper than tossing the TV and purchasing a similar new TV for 15 times the price.

I just bought a $34 sander at Home Depot and the checkout screen offered me an extended product protection warranty for $14.95.

And when it finally does expire, guess who will be calling you several times a day next? The people wanting to sell you a new warranty.

I think one of them felt bad when I told him how many calls I had already received, and he actually told me that there are over 200 of these companies out there just trying to sell you warranties after the factory warranty has run out.

That's some fuckery for you right there.

I found a way to stop the phone call ones. After they go through their pitch I ask..."so tell me, what are you wearing right now"? There's a few seconds of silence and then "click".

Now if I can find a way to stop the mail notices??

Isn't it amazing how we've come to accept phone calls and junk mail telling us our vehicle warranty is expiring EVERY SINGLE DAY as "normal"?

"This is your FINAL NOTICE". God, I wish.
