We lose money

For most, extended warranties are bad investments, because we never use the coverage they pay for.

For a warranty to be worth it,

  • Something needs to fail that is covered.
  • We need to use the warranty during the repairs.
  • The cost of the repairs should exceed the price we paid for the warranty.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Before accepting an extended warranty, ask yourself:

Extended warranties are a product. They help the business more than they help the consumer, as no business offers a product at a loss.

Instead of buying warranties, consider setting up your own warranty coverage by putting the money aside in an interest-bearing savings account. Then you have full control over the money and can re-purpose those funds.
