im gonna spend free money today hopefully

So i had a 19" flatscreen in my boys' room and i bought the extended warranty because i know how rough boys are. anyway the yellow video port stopped working so therefore they couldnt play thier ps2. i called the replacement center and explained it to them they said they would email me a label to send back and no need to send tv back as its too bulky. i didnt want to wait for them to send me a gift card so i sold thier broke tv for 75.00 and yes the buyer was aware of the defect and luckily i found one just like it at a bargain center for 99+tax. so all in all i was out 35.00 and i should be receiving my 176.00 gift card today or tommarrow...can we say shopping spree!

Don't they require the non-working tv to carry out a warranty? I work for an electronics company and that does not make sense. We charge customers full price if they do not return the defective parts....

Nope they said no need to worry about mailing it back because its too bulky. they would probaly just throw it away anyway

 wow if this is the case, you got lucky...

 my husband bought a bull bar for his truck and it came with a small dent, they shipped that big heavy thing back... i was under the impression that these kinds of companies paid next to nothing for shipping because of the frequency of shipments they do.

 I  would be thrilled

I used to work for target, and yes they just throw it away. Anything that's defective gets tossed.
