    here is the FAQ about Newegg's extended warranty

    http://www.newegg.com/HelpInfo/FAQDetail.aspx?Module=10&Menu=sn_396#sn_396


    Its a 3rd party company that you will deal with.

    Extended warranties are a waste of $$$ imho.

    The reason every one wants to sell them to you is they are so profitable. High profitability means a very high percentage of the contracts sold never get used.

    I agree completely. An extended warranty is a waste of money.

    Just think about it for a minute or two; why do you think extended warranties are pushed SO hard when you buy something? It is almost pure profit for the seller of the warranty.
    If a part or product is defective, it usually fails within the normal mfg's warranty period. If you give the product reasonable maintence, it generally works for quite a while.
