See that cutie? He had the privilege of being the first photograph taken on my brand new Point & Shoot. Well, technically I was in the picture too, if you happen to notice my big head in the reflection of the window.
I have never had good luck with Extended Warranties. I always deny them when offered. But, a few years back, I read an article in Consumer Reports about those warranties. They suggested you never buy them unless it is for a digital camera or a big screen TV. So, two years ago when I purchased my camera, I forked over $50 for the extended warranty and accident protection.
I tried to take my camera back to Best Buy and use the warranty a few months ago with no luck. It had been really messing up but they would not do anything to it because it never messed up in front of them. So, I left bummed and promising to never buy another warranty. Well, a couple of weeks ago, my camera ended up fully submerged in water. So, off to Best Buy I went...again!
They looked at it and said it would have to be sent off. Then, about ten days later, I got a call from Best Buy saying to come pick out a new camera. Mine was beyond repair!! Whoo-hooo! For the first time in my life, I felt like I won at Best Buy. I always feel defeated when dealing with them. I had to stick with the same brand but got the most recent model. As best I can tell, that last camera took close to 20,000 pictures. Not bad, huh?
