It's important to remind people that the TVs Costco sells come with a 2 Year manufacturer warranty (they're usually 1 year everywhere else), that's an added bonus just for buying it at Costco. When you buy one of those Squaretrade 3 year warranties (which run $30-$100 depending on the cost of the TV), it actually extends your warranty protection to 5 YEARS TOTAL (2 plus 3 more, this is often misunderstood). I'm normally not a big fan of extended warranties but Costco's prices are actually reasonable for what you get in return.
Good info, thanks. I am also generally not a fan of warranties but this is definitely an exception.
