Does Costco cover beyond warranty period?

I was looking at buying a 12v portable freezer/cooler box and they carry the koolatron smartkool boxes but manufacturer warranty is only for 3 months ... seems kinda short and was wondering being Costco, do they cover beyond that 3 month period either for repair or return? Has anyone had experience with this portable cooler box?

If it's not a "major appliance", then probably no warranty extension, although Costco will let you return it to the store for 90 days.

Some credit cards offer to double the manufacturer's warranty up to a max of 1 year extra, so only to 6 months in this case.

If the manufacturer only offers 3 months, there's probably a good reason for that. You should probably consider it an annually disposable item.

Don’t buy crap that the manufacturer doesn’t even believe in…
