This is great. I bought a refrigerator last year from Sears with a 1 year warranty, the fridge broke within a year.
Called for service, they service person who arrived said the refrigerator was built in 2004 and was not the one I bought at Sears. I had Sears look it up and send me a copy of the receipt. Sears said that they would not honor the warranty because the fridge was manufactured in 2004. I don't care I bought it within the year with a 1 year warranty.
Their response was that it is too old to be covered under warranty. But I have a receipt and the warranty. Oh that receipt is not proof you bought the refrigerator.
But Sears looked up the receipt and sent it to me. Well that proved nothing, so now I have a $700 paperweight.
Monetary Loss: $700.
