Fred Meyer Informative - Camera Extended Warrantee purchase
BELLINGHAM, WASHINGTON -- Sales personnel for the store tell a wonderful tale of how your new camera will be replaced by paying around 12% extra for an extended warranty through a third party insurer. I bought a Samsung camera after great luck with one my adult daughter owns and payed about $12 for the warranty "protection".
DO NOT waste your dollars on this. On trying to turn in a claim when the camera stopped operating I was informed by the warranty provider that the only thing covered on the camera is power surge protection. That was probably the last thing I needed protection for on a digital camera! Worthless warantee product - totally worthless.
