I was stalled and couldn't get info from them on how to file and my warranty number. After about a month of phoning, emailing them and the retailer I purchased it from - overstock.com.
One of the reason I was denied is for not filing in their allowed time limit?! - What?! They wouldn't give me the answers until the time limit ran out. SCAM!!
Also I now notice in the fine print that the state: Basically if they cannot repair the damage for less than what you purchased the claim for they state they will give you back the money for the warranty. WELL WHY BUY THE WARRANTY TO BEGIN WITH? It's like insurance and when you go to use it, they won't fix it, they just give you your money back!!!! What if car, household, health insurance worked the same way.
We wouldn't get our house rebuild after a fire, the insurance company will just give you that year's insurance premium back! That is not what warranties and insurance is suppose to do...if so why buy it!? This has to be illegal and I plan on reporting them to every consumer protection bureau I can find. They will tell you the world to get you to purchase this warranty but then they actually state this in their own words at https://help.overstock.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1595 How does the 5 Year Accidental Damage Service Plan work?
