LG recently started covering burn-in under warranty. So if you use a credit card with extended warranty, you'll basically have 2+ years of burn-in coverage. Costco's TV extended warranty is provided by Asurion. Their terms and agreement excludes burned-in phosphor, but OLED panels don't use phosphor like plasma. So you can argue that OLED burn-in should be covered. Best to confirm with Asurion first though.
Someone said it was outright denied in another OLED thread

edit: it was here, but that post seem to be removed or relocated

What does everyone think about the $99 extended warranty (+3 years) since it sounds like it doesn't cover burn-in? The TV comes with a 2-year initial warranty so I wasn't sure if I should bite the bullet....

I just bought this TV and decided to purchase the warranty. I figured it wasn't that much extra for the 3 extra years but as with any warranty I am sure they are offered as a money maker so chances are you wont use it (but if you do......).

I'm a sucker for Costco warranties. I typically buy them and did for this TV. I bought a pixel 3 XL not long ago and even though the replacement cost has gone up, I like the piece of mind that I get with having coverage.

What credit card warranties would cover this? Most seem to have terms that they could use to disqualify burn-in (e.g. wear and tear) seems like it would be a crapshoot

Looking at the p65-f1 65" for 999 at openbox. Also this lg b8 for 1500 55" or the 65 x900f openbox for 1600.

Leaning towards the x900f. Also saw the pq65-f1 was $1799 a couple weeks ago at costco

How bad is the burn in and the flashing problem. Also I heard sports aren't the best on oled.

Problem is Vizio is upconversion is terrible.

I might wait but I sold my tv haha

Maybe someone can guide me on the right path.
I have a 55" LG B7 and a 65" Vizio PF1.

I do most of my viewing on the OLED - the image is easier on eyes. That being said the PF1 is also great - I use it for gaming mostly and have no worries on burn in. If you are watching TV I would go for LG, gaming and multimedia go with Vizio.

Most credit card that have extended warranties would cover this. They refer to the original manufacturer's warranty coverage for their extended coverage, such as the one from Capital One:
Extended Warranty benefits apply to any parts and/or labour costs
resulting from mechanical breakdown or failure of a covered item,
where such obligation was specifically covered under the terms of
the Original Manufacturer’s Warranty.

Most of the cards have exclusions that could rule out burn-in. Thank you for the information, Capital One is the first card I've seen that doesn't have a exclusion that burn-in could fall under. The only problem is the Capital One cards seem to only have double manufactuter's warranty which would give you only two years if you purchased an LG OLED. Ideally we need to find a card that gives you 3 years and covers burn-in.

The RBC and BMO WE mastercard, and all the big bank's Visa Infinities that provide triple manufacturer warranty seem to have exclusions that could rule out burn-in
