Today I was informed that my Panasonic DECT phone manufacturer’s one year guarantee had expired. I was invited to insure it for a further year by Domestic & General for £64 per annum, or save £5 paying by direct debit. They must be mad!
I paid £20 for the phone at Tesco as a special promotion, usually £40.
A friend of the family worked for BT as a telephone call operator until she moved to Gibraltar. She rented a fixed wired telephone from BT for many years up to leaving the UK. Company loyalty is ok up to a point!
Personal view, all these extra insurance deals are a total waste of space - don't know why anyone gets suckered into signing up (although some stores do exert an awful lot of pressure when buying something new).
