Has anyone had experience using their credit card extended warranties on Kindle 1? Any one know if the Kindle and its battery would not be covered? Both the credit cards I use (Citibank and AmEx) both extend warranties for the same length for no additional charge if you use them to purchase a product. ("The Extended Warranty will extend the terms of the original U.S. manufacturer's warranty for up to one additional year on eligible purchases with warranties of 5 years or less, when the purchase is charged to the Card.") That means, you will get 2 years coverage for the Kindle, so I assume that if the one-year warranty covers the battery, then the extended warranty will also cover it for an additional year. No need to buy the extended warranty offered by Amazon. Contact your credit card company to be sure the card you have does this. Both of these cards also cover Protection within first 90 days: "Protects most purchases made on these cards against theft, fire or accidental breakage up to $500, for up to 90 days from the date of purchase."
