      I received information regarding an extended warranty from Bosch in the mail today for my new 800 refrigerator. Is it worth it to purchase it? Thanks!

      So the extended warranties are tricky, on one hand, you say it’s a brand new appliance it shouldn’t break, so why would I spend the extra?! On the other hand, things are computerized today and are very quirky, so the smallest of issues cost you $125 for a service guy to walk in the home, not to mention the parts. I like extended warranties and encourage people to buy them on select products, usually fridges, stoves, dishwashers, washers, and other highly mechanical items. The main thing is the cost. I feel a warranty for 5-full years. 1st year from the manufacturer, then 4 more from the servicer shouldn’t exceed 10% of the purchase price and many times less. If you bought it from, let’s say, a home center, they usually are 20-30% less than buying it directly from the manufacturer. It’s your call, but if the cost falls in line, I would take it. I can’t tell you how many times 3-4 years later, in general with appliances, someone calls to say the ice maker stopped working or the computer went out, and it’s so nice when they’re covered.
