Unless your product breaks one day after the manufacturer's warranty expires....
While I would agree with you it would be stupid on an item such as an iron or coffee maker, when you get into the thousands of dollars range, it makes a little more sense. Especially on electronics (not computers). Major appliances probably have adequate standard warranties.
You might have a credit card that doubles manufacturer warranties for no extra cost... this could be worth it if you can pay off the card in a reasonable amount of time (before the interest paid is more than the cost of a new item).
The extended warranty is a very large money maker for the stores. If it was not, they wouldn't offer them. It's really not in the interest of any store to worry about your purchase lasting longer than the advertised warranty. They are simply worried more about making profit. IF the extention was not a big money maker, they would not exist. It's proven that a very small percentage of extended warranties are ever used.

Never had that from Discount tire. I had two that were wearing fast on a rod pulling truck they guy put new ones on no charge with the warranty starting over on those two. Tire Discounters same thing.
On big trucks though I use Buckeye tire Wd tire warehouse in columbus. And various Michelin Yokohama or toyo dealers . Bandag trash hualer recaps on drive axles with virgin casings from Yokohama mostly
Same experience with Tire Discounters. I had a pickup in front of me drop its spare tire holder and it ruined one tire with about 10,000 miles on the set. They replaced the tire with a new one no problems. Even realigned it no charge.
