Please excuse me for a long rant, but this concerns Canadians who have or will purchase an extended warranty from "First Canadian Protection Plans".
I am down here in Yuma AZ where it is very hot right now and my A/C quit working. I purchased my warranty in 2007 and have never had the need to use it. I was told that at the end of the warranty period if I did not use it I would be getting a substantial rebate.
I never used this warranty but did phone the company last summer and was told my warranty was good until Aug. 2015 and I never thought any more about it until my A/C went out and gave them a call to set up a claim if needed. It turns out it was only a capacitor that did not cost much to replace.
I was told by FCPP that my warranty was expired last August but I had not received any notice of this and was told it was in the fine print about giving them 60 days notice to get the rebate.
There is apparently no record of a phone call to them or so they tell me. I then phoned my dealer and they couldn't care less. I don't think the finance guy was happy with my response to him. Lets put it this way I was rather disappointed in myself, but that's life I guess.
I paid close to 3 grand for this warranty and why would I not make a claim for rebate if I knew the rules? My long rant is to let prospective buyers that if it sounds to good to be true it usually is. I can't say this is a scam but........
