Nikon does not usually deny service because the warranty card is missing. As long as you have the receipt, they accept it for repair.Winkle wrote: ↑Nov 17th, 2009 11:13 amMy understanding is you register the warranty with the warranty slip that comes with all Nikon products that has to be backed up by a receipt showing the product serial number (which obviously has to match whatever is on the product and warranty slip) plus the name of the person on the warranty slip.
I'm pretty sure they can't go by the name on the receipt alone, the receipt will only show a name if a Credit Card was used for the purchase, plus its not always the same name. What if a friend purchased the product for me? The receipt will have their name and not mine so I'm not eligible for the warranty?
I'm sure once the item is brought in for service the first time they take the persons name, address, etc. This ensures others cannot use the warranty in the future.
How Nikon verifies the owner of a cash purchase is unknown. Perhaps as long as the receipt is blank, and the item is claim free, the warranty is good to go.
