Futureshop Warranty Not Worth it at all (on laptops)
Instead I called around and went to Computer Care Center in Ottawa and got the screen replaced with a brand new one in an hour for $250.
If I had bought a warranty originally from FS, it would have been like 300-400 dollars and I dont think it wuold have even covered this accidental damage.
I talked to the guys there and they told me that all the work they do there is usually for futureshop (he even showed me reciepts) and futureshop actually marks up the price of the repair 50-100 extra.
He told me Computer Care Centre does any kind of repair and the prices for them.
So my point is, since its pretty rare for all out hardware failure, wouldnt it just be better to repair the laptop yourself, paying 200 bucks when you actually need it rather than 300 up front?
PLUS..barely any wait time and hassle. I've read a lot of your horror stories about having to negotiate with FS on warranty coverage.
