    My experience has been good

    I did get the Sprint rebates on my wireless service 5 years ago when I first signed up. And I am possibly the only person I know that has made money off their warranties. In one case, I bought a three year warranty on my Sprint phone. It broke twice, the first time the store just swapped it out for an identical phone. The second time, they no longer carried my phone, so I upgraded to a newer phone which had a lower price, and got a gift card for the $75 difference. Meanwhile the 3 year warranty only cost me $60.

    I also bought a two year warranty on my PS2. It broke toward the end of the two years. But I had purchased it for $299. When it broke, they were selling for $199 and came with a network adapter and game. So I again got a gift card for the difference.

    I'm sure these are fairly unique positive experiences, but I'm all for the warranties!
