If i remember correctly, it's in Staples GC, and not in cash.Said212 wrote: ↑Jul 14th, 2012 12:48 pmI bought my extended warranty on my first laptop and two months before the third year expired, my computer completely fried (motherboard failure?). They offered me 320$. I took it....
Like yeah I paid 99$ for it but it SORT of paid off. Also, I got a battery change out of it because my battery died two years in.
But yeah, I don't know what type of experiences people have had.

If it's electronics under $250, or a tablet, Staples' replacement plan provides you with either a replacement of the exact same item or whatever amount you paid for.
Staples actually owns their own repair depot for computers instead of outsourcing. All repair center staff have a staples assigned employee number, the depot have access to staples' system (inventory, ordering, etc), and they have a staples store number just like the retail locations.

It is true that "The only time when buyout occurs is when the repair cost exceeds what they deem to be practical." This is true but it means that they will pay the least amount possible with their "out" being what they calculate as the depreciated value. Flipped around the other way, at the point that the plan could be the MOST valuable to the consumer (an expensive repair), Staples plan allows them to sneak out the back door. And then you only get that in the form of a Staples GC so it is worth even less.Repo600 wrote: ↑Jul 15th, 2012 11:59 pmIf it's electronics under $250, or a tablet, Staples' replacement plan provides you with either a replacement of the exact same item or whatever amount you paid for.
Repair plans are the only ones that offer you a depreciated value. However, do keep in mind that the item will usually be repaired. Buyouts don't happen very often. The only time when buyout occurs is when the repair cost exceeds what they deem to be practical.
