6:23 am
before you go out and get a new card, always check for fees and restrictions. use sites like creditcards dot com, nerdwallet, and credit karma. when you shell out big bucks for a major appliance or product,you're usually asked if you want "the extended warranty". one local couple says they regret their decision to do just that. this morning, action news anchor tricia kean has -4- things you need to know before buying a warranty. < bill: it's suppose to protect everything about it, and we can't get to first base. bill and cleo moore have a "master protection agreement" the part needing to be replaced, wasn't covered. bill: well we had the master protection plan... it makes no sense, and i've been paying for years. they purchased their service contract through sears, and pay 417 dollars every year. cleo: so we're just giving you money every year for nothing? for a piece of paper? sears fixed the air conditioning.
6:24 am
with a 36 hundred dollar balance! and they're not happy about it. cleo: you willingly take my money every year, and make us feel we are covered. how dare you. so how do you avoid your own extended warranty nightmare? number 1: look for special conditions, exclusions, and limitations. some contracts limit the amount they'll pay for repair work, or replacements. number 2: be sure you know who handles a claim. many times repairs are handled by a third party. and sometimes, you may be required to return the item to the store. number 3: look carefully at how long you're really covered. a contract offering 5 years of extended coverage, may only be providing 4. that's because they sometimes include the manufacturer's typical 1 year limited warranty. and number 4: learn about the "free look-up period." under certain circumstances, the warranty provider may be required to give you a full refund. but you may have as little as 10 days to act.
6:25 am
there's no where else for us to go. as for bill and cleo, contact 13 reached out to sears about their case. the company simply states the: "...work was not covered by the sears master protection agreement..." and they believe the charges are appropriate. but the question is, why wasn't it covered? bill: when sears intially came out and we signed up with the agreement, they checked everything. sears checked the unit up there. sears stopped responding to contact 13's questions. but here's what we know: according to sears' paperwork, bill and cleo's repair was needed because their "evaporator coil was leaking." well guess what... that's covered under the master protection agreement. see right here where it says: centralized a/c coil? according to a local a/c expert, that's the same thing as an evaporator coil. bill and cleo say they plan to fight the charges. cleo: i don't feel we owe it. it's wrong. bill: you are being totally unreasonable and unfair to us.>
6:26 am
extended warranty... file a complaint with "the nevada division of insurance". in some cases, you can also turn to the state contractors board. and don't forget contact 13 is here for you!! e-mail us at 13 investigates @ ktnv dot com and we'll see what we can do to help. good morning las vegas.. still ahead this morning... how safe is the las vegas strip? that question on the minds of many after a shooting leaves 2 people dead. plus, residents are speaking about a kidnapping happening
