Fairly certain that the Square Trade warranty from CostCo ADDS 3 years to the standard 2 year CostCo warranty, for a total of 5 years coverage, and would expect it to work similarly for a set purchased with a standard 1 year warranty.
Even so (Knock On Wood!), have not been a fan of spending $$ on extended warranties - although do like fact that CostCo provides a 2nd year for "free."
Some people sleep better knowing they have coverage for a longer time period, and there have certainly been reports from owners for whom the Ext Warr has paid off.
Pick your poison.
