Do extended warranties work?

The thread mentioned above kinda sorta praises Best Buy's extended warranty plan. One guy got a G1, broke, got a 995, then broke again, got a G3, then that broke and finally BB gave him a DRebel for $100.00 more.

I often hear horror stories about extended warranties and stores like BB, CC, CUSA, giving problems and hassles when trying to get something replaced.

hassel is defined by how big of a pussy you are.

If you bought the extended warranty, and the product broke, and you take it in, they give you some heat, and you're a pussy and give up, then no, extended warranties do not work
