I bought a Roamio Plus with lifetime and a 3 year warranty from Tivo and just realized that you only get one replacement with the Tivo warranty and have to pay $150 for a replacement unit. Square Trade currently have a 35% off coupon which knocks their 3 year warranty to just $35.
What is the drawback of each? I'm also concerned about transferring the lifetime service to the replacement if it can't or won't be repaired. I could still cancel the warranty contract from Tivo as long as I'm within the first 30 days, right? Thanks in advance.
Edit: I also get an extra year of warranty since I used the Chase Freedom Visa card. So, with the included 1 year warranty, it's a 2 year warranty without any extended warranty plan. Does anyone now if Tivo honors the Chase card warranty? It might not be worth to get the 3 year extended warranty after all. I'm basically paying for an extra year of warranty for the price of 3 years, right?
