10 military moves and 18 years of use and one of my original pots, a pan, and a teapot were all chipped, and the pot and pan had handles that had fallen off.
Now, Chantal has a lifetime warranty. But, I am lazy. I really just wanted to donate our old pots to Goodwill and just see what I could find at TJ Maxx or Ross to replace them.
My husband could not believe it. He wanted to know just what kind of eco-friendly deal blogger I thought I was? Well, truthfully? I was the kind of eco-friendly deal blogger that simply thought it sounded a whole heck of a lot easier to just buy something new then to go through the trouble. Plus, it was Christmas time when we unpacked our stuff, and I just could not face the post office to mail our old stuff back in hopes of our new stuff.
So, my husband said he’d do it for me. See why I’ve been happily married for over 18 years? 🙂
And it was so worth taking advantage of that warranty. It has been 2 months since we started corresponding with Chantal. But my new pots arrived today, and I am so happy that my husband persevered and followed through. I think I will enjoy cooking dinner tonight more than I have in a long time!
The moral of this story? Take advantage of warranties. The result should be that you will be rewarded for your time and effort.
Have you ever taken advantage of the warranty on an item? Any tips you’d be willing to share? Good experiences? Bad? Leave them in the comments so we can all learn!
