It was worth it at $99, and it's an even better deal at $89.

Just contact square trade and make sure that it's the same coverage.

 

IMO you should contact ST anyway given how badly costco F'd it up when I purchased it.  ST fixed it all.


Cogito ergo sum makes a fundamental mistake because it ignores the implied existence of the narrator. Descartes might as well have said "A rose is red, therefore I am".

They do not offer coverage for projector's based on my discussion with a rep. Nice try, but warranty companies aren't stupid, if they don't make money they won't be in business. A new bulb depending on the projector could put them upside down quickly.

who? squaretrade? they most certainly do have one for a projector... they sell them on amazon all the time. I called in for a quote this morning... a 4 year for a $2500-$3000 projector is $268... they just stipulate that they don't cover bulbs...they did the same for rear projection tvs

I was just wondering if they counted it as a "tv" since I never asked... since costco's price would have been killer compared to $268

Call and ask for yourself instead of telling me what Amazon sells for a warranty for projectors sold via their website, just repeating what I was told, maybe you will get a different answer. Costco is selling coverage for a television only.

ummm, I DID call squaretrade about them carrying a warranty for projectors, you said that what you knew they wouldn't carry them, and elaborated how the cost of bulbs would kill... I was explaining that yes they do, they've had the same policy back when Projection Tv's were in style as well, coverage was for the unit itself, bulbs were disposable items and not covered..... I just asked if anyone else had experience with the costco version... being that lots of people buy them, I was just asking if anyone had any idea.

Hey guys... pretty new here but have been educating myself through this forum before purchasing my home theater system.

Question: Can I have two overlapping extended warranties? and if lets say my LCD TV breaks and is unreplaceable, can I get a refund/payout from both warranty companies?

I have this odd warranty from walmart called "NEW by Asurion" and would like to purchase the SquareTrade on top of that. Thanks in advance guys.

I wanted to re-open this thread as it's not been discussed in a while. I just bought a Samsung TV from HH Greg and paid over $500 for the 5 year extended warranty. I then seen this thread and have been researching the $89 Costco / Square Trade deal. It sounds like from reading the ad on Costco that the TV will be covered by Samsung year 1, Costco year 2, and Square Trade year 3-5. BUT, after reading this thread, it sounds like that's only true if TV was purchased AT Costco. Since I purchased at HH Greg, the ST 3 year policy kicks in year 2, and I'll lose the 5th year.

Is this accurate OR has this plan changed in the last year (since the last postings in this thread) and Costco covers year 2 and ST does go to year 3-5.

It seems like a no brainer to save the $450 on the policies. Just wanted to check on the above scenario and other peoples opinions on getting ST warranty VS the high priced warranty at HH Greg.



Thanks for any help!!!
