Over a year ago (some time before Nathan’s first birthday party) my video camera quit working. It would record, but there were lines in it during playback (big blue lines that even came up when I tried to import it to the computer). I couldn’t find my receipt so I wasn’t sure if I had purchased one of those service contract things with Best Buy. I can’t believe now that I didn’t try to take it back, but it has been a year ago so I don’t remember everything that happened.
Well I eventually bought a new camera and pretty much forgot about the old one. Today I get a letter from Best Buy telling me that the service contract on that camera just has a month to go before it expires. I was pretty happy. I was hoping to take the camera to BB and have them tell me to pick out a new one to replace the old one. So I go and dig out the camera and its cords and everything and wait for it…
Yes, the freaking camera worked.
So that ended my desire for a free camera or at the very least getting my money’s worth from buying the service contract. I guess I will stick this now working camera on ebay or something and see what I can get for it.
