Alot of stores have now started or have been, offering these "Extended Service Plans". They have them for outdoor power equiptment, power tools, paint power equiptment, small appliances, ect. Has anyone ever bought them and actually had to use them? I know that they do not pick up where the manufactures warranty ends, they run together. You can pick a variety of months or years and the price of the plan depends on the purchase price of the unit. Just wondering if anyone has tried this and how it turned out.
