Check out One thing to consider is whether the TV is even repairable. Many sets out there, if they break after warranty, will just have to be thrown away because they're not really fixable by virtually all repair shops.

In that case, I would expect Amex to buy me a new one. Smiley Happy

Edit to clarify: That's if it breaks after the manufacturer's original warranty has expired, but within the extended warranty period. That's three years of warranty coverage anyway. I'm not too worried if it breaks after that.

When was the last time anyone took a piece of consumer electronics to the "repair shop" anyway?

If it's less than three years old and I paid three large for's going to the repair shop. I am not going to just throw it away.
