Perhaps this is off topic, but could not find a forum here on Extended Warranties.
So if I purchased a JS
8500 for $2,000 so far the following warranties have been mentioned by dealers:
: Highly rated, $175 - $200 fee, five years, must sign up within 30 days of purchase. The benefit cannot exceed $2000. ST can cash you out.
2. The Warranty Group
: Sometimes free with TV purchase, and valued at $200 for five years. Dealers claim the TWG is the administrator of Samsung factory own warranty, and on official Samsung literature it indeed states "administered by TWG Innovative Solutions, Inc." in Chicago, IL. Same organization ? Haven't seen the contract language, but have been told that the benefit can exceed the original price of the TV, however if they replace the TV then the contract is over. You have the right to purchase a new contract with any replacement TV. TWG is said to have some bad reviews on the Internet. Will check.
3. Geek Squad
: Five years maximum, but can renew after that (unlike #1
and #2 above). Owned by Best Buy and it's a whopping $500 to $800 (depending upon some extra services). There's no limit on repairs, but like #2
above, you can be cashed out with a set replacement. Geek Squad alleges that they will handle even the first year (Manufacturer's).
Any of you know which extended warranty is the best, including the three listed above ?
