Appliances: Cash back or extended warranty?
But I then thought about warranties. I believe both come with only 1 year on parts and labor. Using my card to pay direct would mean a one year extension. If I buy with gift cards, I don't get that extension.
My question is, would it be better to get the $230sh in cash back, or the extended warranty? I have read that extended warranties are a rip off in most cases, but it would be free. I've read reviews of both appliances, both 4.5 out of 5 and the bad ones are breaking down issues within a year sometimes two of purchase.
I was originally going to buy both appliances at IKEA as they have a 5 year warranty, but I didn't like their fridges. The oven is what I would consider still getting, and both are made by Whirlpool. I have read the drawback to the IKEA Nutid is the self cleaning which I never use.
