    hello,

    has anybody ever heard of, or made use of, "Consumer Priority Service"
    extended warranties? not really looking to debate the value of
    warranties in general (been there. i dont buy them). just wondering on
    the rep of this particular company.

    unlike mack, they arent a repair shop. they have you use any
    manufacturer-authorized repair facility. but i dont see any newsgroup
    posts, and their website seems pretty small-time:

    thanks,

  2. I have also never hear of them and everything seems to point to two
    facts.

    All insurance companies (these are really insurance not warranties) make
    money. Some fail and can leave those with policies holding the bag.

    For others who may not have already figured out, them make money at your
    expense, usually 50% or more of what you pay is profit or commission expense
    and less that half is left for repairs.

  3. Their domain is registered through an anonymizer service to bypass
    regulations requiring working registration contacts. I wouldn't let my
    credit card anywhere near their web site.
