Are Appliance Extended Warranties worth It?
Some say it’s not worth the extra cost, if you buy a washing machine for $400.00, it’s not worth the $150.00 on an extended warranty. 20 years ago extended warranties may not have been recommended. Appliances are built a little differently than they used to be, some Fridges, Ranges and Washer/Dryers cost over $3000.00, and the parts are so expensive because newer units all have computer boards. It could cost $200 to $300 for the parts, and it seems that energy-efficient machine break down more easily. Most service calls on fridges range from $200 - $500. One call and you have made up the price of the warranty. If the appliance cost $800 or more, it may be very well worth it. Often if you do not use your warranty, the cost of the warranty could be used towards certain merchandise as a credit.
