Wish I had known about this cover when I bought my TV:-
Nationwide Building Society is increasing the range of products covered by its extended warranty insurance.
The insurance is provided free of charge with its credit cards and will now cover electrical items such as MP3 players/MP4 players, DAB radios, camcorders with hard drives, DVDs with hard drives, iPod docking stations, portable DVD players, home cinema systems and Freeview boxes.
Washing machines, fridges, ovens, dishwashers and televisions continue to be covered by the warranties.
The policy provides one year's free warranty on top of an existing manufacturer's warranty of up to two years so up to three year protection is provided.
To qualify for the cover, credit card customers must register a purchase over £50 within 60 days of purchase and the warranty provides the reasonable cost of repair or replacement up to the value of £5,000. Products costing £50 to £200 are replaced automatically.
Robin Bailey, Nationwide divisional director, said: "Any Nationwide credit cardholder who uses their credit card to purchase an electrical item for use within their home can receive a year's extended warranty cover free of charge - simply by registering it.
"We have recently improved the range of items that can be covered, to include newer technologies such iPods, MP3 and MP4 players, home cinema systems and Freeview boxes - which previously weren't covered."
Computers, sat-nav, mobile phones and gardening equipment are now covered by the extended warranty insurance policy.
