Never thought to take advantage of my credit card warrantee protection, but it WORKS!!!
At least 2 of my cards will double a manufacturers warrantee up to an extra year. Just have to put the whole purchase on the card.
My wakeboard was just our of warrantee, and the manufacturer could only give me a discounted board, but I remembered paying by cr card. Visa called the manufacturer and paid me the amount to replace the board. If the wb company had charged me full price, they would have paid that.
Got my check today!
Now a new warrantee period begins, and I have 2 years AGAIN
Not all cards do it, but I know my Chase Saphire does and Capital One Platinum (thank you!) does.
There is a process: receipt, statement, copy of warrantee, etc but it only took me a week.
Hope this helps
