Default KitchenAid Total Replacement Plan

A few years back, I purchased a KitchenAid coffeemaker from a Salvation Army thrift store for $4.00. When I got it home, I found out it was recalled and KitchenAid wanted it back. They sent me a brand new upgraded coffeemaker and I sent them the old one back all on their dime.

Today in the mail I got an extended warranty plan for the coffeemaker:

1 year for $82.95
2 years for 149.31
3 years for 211.52.

I think I'll get the three year plan.

Geez, what model did you get? Is it the one that grows the beans and has an animatronic topless barista brew up the drink for you?

I'd see if they'd take $325 for a 4 year plan

WTF that's like the same price as renewing the warranty on a laptop.

Same as the ones that I got for a Samsung Blu-Ray player and multiple LG lcds. The prices are crazy. If I was going to go the extended-warranty route it would be Squaretrade (except once I got a manufacturer one that was dirt cheap - still don't know why but I did use it so it made it worthwhile).

The cost for some extended warranties is totally crazy. I've gotten a few on my desktop computer (way out of warranty by now) where they wanted over 50% of the cost of a new one for a two year warranty.

50% is at least somewhat realistic (although I wouldn't go for it). If these companies are peddling this kind of stuff they must get a fair amount of suckers to actually purchase an extended warranty that costs 200% of the original MSRP.

It reminds me of the Late Gary Coleman / Cash Call advertisment. In the fine print it states:

"The APR for a typical loan of $2600 is 99.25% with 42 monthly payments of $216.55".
