um, if your xbox360 breaks a week after the manufacturing date is up, It does make financial sense.. $60
That said, the Costco plan sounds like the best way to go so far..Also most retailers like Circuity City will negotiate on the extended coverage price.

So what is your point? If an extended warranty for my $20,000 car was offered for a price of $5,000, even though $5,000 is less than $20,000 doesn't mean that it makes financial sense to purchase an extended warranty at that price.
At $60 (15% of the purchase price), basically for the public as a whole to benefit from buying the warranty, the defect rate would have to be 15% or higher. If that is the defect rate of the product, I don't want to own it anyway.
