I recently purchased an Xbox 360, and was dissapointed to find that after much care and little play, the machine died on me. Needless to say i would like to buy another 360, but not without a comprehensive extended warranty.
So i ask of you, fellow HUKDealers, can anyone please find the best deal on a Premium Xbox 360 with extended warranty?
Woolworths have the Premium console, extra official pad and PGR3 and PES6 for £270. The warranty for four years is £103, so it comes to £273. The Amazon deal looks best, but i cant find anything about an extended warranty anywhere. I have sent them an email regarding it-i would be suprised if they dont offer one, as im sure you all know when you buy a TV or appliance on the High Street they always try to sell you the extra warranty or extended guarantee.
The only things the deal must have are:
1. Console must be replaced or original cost refunded-i dont want a repair/refurb.
2. Manufacturer must have a reasonable reputation (so not PixMania).
3. Accidental damage cover is not necessary, but preffered.
And if possible an extra official wireless controller. I dont really care about games, unless like the Amazon deal they are free, as i already have loads, i just need the console.
Finally, to anyone reading this who is thinking of buying a 360, or has had one break, dont buy without a warranty, and for the first twelve months it is the manufacturers responsibility, despite what they might say. The actual failure rate is estimated as being as high as 61%!
Many thanks all.
