I tend to agree, but one nice feature of my Mastercard is a free double
warranty on anything I buy on the card, up to an extra one year. I pay
nothing for this feature on the card. I've yet to have to use it, but
it feels a bit more secure to have a 180 day warranty widened to a year,
a one year become two, and a 3 year become 4 year, all for free.
