Domestic & General is a popular place. You could, arguably, do just as well by putting the money into a savings account though. If you do that for all your purchases you end up with a nice buffer for repairs/replacements should the need arise.

I agree with above 100% i have washer, cooker, and tv cover with domestic and general!!! You can get a quote and buy online too

which tv are you getting? i am after one

Sale of Goods act will cover you...........don't need extended warranty.

You can take it out now and its best to take it out now, because they like you doing so, in case you know its on its way out when you decide to extend cover, not that it should be after just 12 months, but i would take it out now. I pay monthly for mine

Extended warranty you say....you'll find them on the shelf next to the snake oil.

If you're buying a Panasonic: panasonic.co.uk/htm…tml

I had a Samsung that was two years old and developed a shadow all down one side, Amazon referred me to Samsung and Samsung guess what? yep told me to go back to where I bought it and as the 12 months warrenty was up nobody wanted to know.

I finally bought a new Panasonic from M&S who were doing a 5 year extended warranty at the time so the sale of goods act didnt work for me.

Would never use Domestic & General again, when I had my sony 32" crt a few years ago which cost alot of money at the time they would not cough up the money at first, but only got about £235 out of them in the end.

Should have persisted with Samsung. EU rules state at least 2 years warranty and SOGA covers you if an inspector can show it had an inherent fault for up to 6 years (I think....)

only if the other company offers a free warranty too. otherwise they won't now.

as for the sale of goods act, its NOT a warranty. you can claim but YOU do all the running around, paying for independent reports and may have to go to court.

the EU rule isn't enforced in this country. sorry.
we do have the sale of goods act to help, but it also protects the retailer from dodgy customers who claim their TV went bang when it didnt.
hence the independent reports and after 6 months, the onus being on the customer to sort it all out and PROVE that the TV has a manufacturing fault. doesnt mean you'll get a new TV, you may get a free repair or a partial refund based on the age & wear n tear on the TV at the time of the claim.

so, dya wanna chance having to go to court?
or buy a policy?
or save up in say a separate bank account incase?

SOG act only covers 2 years and after the first 6 months you must prove the fault was there at manufacture. It doesn't cover accidental damage either.
