    I just bought 5G 60 gig iPod video (yesterday). when i got to the checkout, the clerk (at futureshop) offered me an extended warranty:

    2 years for 74.99 CAD
    3 years for 99.99 CAD

    i opted for the three year since my 4G 20 gigger just crapped out on me a few weeks back (only a month after the 1 year manufacturer's warranty expired might i add).

    what's your take on the extra warranty?

    It depends - do you honestly see yourself with the same iPod in 2009/2010? Or will you want to upgrade before then...?

    It certainly does help its resell value, though, if you do decide to upgrade...:)

    In three years if you have the Futureshop warranty, they will likely give you a newer iPod, and then you can sometimes get a new warranty on that.

    My friend just traded a 3g iPod in for a 5G as his two year warranty from Futureshop was almost up.

    AND they let him buy a new warranty.

    Pretty sweet huh?
