Recently we purchased a trash can for the kitchen and it came with a warranty card. I’ll be honest here, I didn’t fill it out!
Our rule of thumb with product warranties is that if it was less than $100, we’re not getting a warranty on it. I dislike keeping all the paperwork for random stuff. The exception would be baby gear, because sometimes there are problems, and I fill it out in case there’s a product recall or something.
But for the most part, stuff we buy can be pretty easily replaced. Earlier this week I purchased a hot plate and it was $60. For an additional $5, I could have bought an extended warranty on it. We chose not to, because it already has a 1 year warranty on it, and it’s not something we needed on a daily basis that would require us to pay a bit more for it.
What are your thoughts on warranties?
