I brought a 2-year plan warranty plan with Best Buy for my Xbox 360 back in September 2007.
It died a few weeks ago and I had to mail it in, because apparently the bar code on the receipt didn't match the console itself. Even though the bar code matched the 360 box. But whatever, so they made me mail it in... and I finally got my store credit + tax back.
It came out to $378.68. So I went in to get a new system again, and it turns out I had to spend another 60 bucks to buy the 2 year warranty because they terminate it after you use it.
Isn't that retarded? =\ I guess that's how they make their money too... bleh. In this situation though, it's not a Best Buy thing... but a Microsoft thing with their crappy Xbox360s. Still, I thought it was convenient. Guess not, after having to shell out another 60 bucks on this unreliable yet fun system.
