So this is cool.

Our printer recently stopped working. (That part is not so cool.) We bought it over a year and a half ago, and of course the warranty was only for one year. But! When I got my credit card I actually looked through the little brochure that came with it and I made a mental note about some of the benefits it comes with. Including their Extended Warranty program. (You may have it, too. Check your benefits.)

The way it works is this: If you buy anything with a warranty of one year or less and you pay for it with your MasterCard, they will match the warranty terms, effectively doubling its life. The printer came with a one year warranty, so MasterCard covered the second year.

I called them up. They put in the claim and gave me a website where I could upload copies of the necessary documents. It was really easy. I bought a new printer (should be arriving tomorrow) and uploaded a copy of the receipt. MasterCard is mailing me a check for the full price of the new printer (including tax).
