My problem is I have had 2 expensive TVs fail repeatedly.
Usually the extended warranty is not worth the cost, but on a $4,000 purchase, is it worth while?
The Costco/Squaretrade extended service contract is a no brainer for anyone who has a $4,000 tv habit. You can get 3 years beyond the manufacturers 1 year warranty for NO MORE THAN a paltry $105.00 Plus sales tax for your state. This would be the cost, if there are Costco stores in your state, but you are not a member of Costco. If there are no Costco stores in your state, you would save the sales tax. If you are a Costco member, you would save the $5.00 upcharge, but would have to pay the sales tax. Finally, if you bought your tv at Costco, you would have to pay $100 plus sales tax, but you would get 5 years of warranty (year 1 manufacturer, year 2 Costco concierge service, years 3 through 5 on Squaretrade.)
Also, you have up to 60 days from the date of tv purchase to buy the Costco/ Squaretrade service agreement.
This agreement is FULLY TRANSFERABLE at NO ADDITIONAL COST (see section 14, of the 2 page service agreement linked below) This would be of interest to all those who are planning to sell their paltry 80" set when the 90" sets are available!
The Costco website where you can buy this agreement is here:http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...=1&topnav=&s=1

The availability of and cost to non members is per my conversation and the checking done by a manager at my local Costco. If you can not buy for the additional 5% upcharge, please let me know, and I will correct this and other errors.
