I WAS LOSING MY COOL AT THIS POINT BUT HAD NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO WAIT, I ADVISED THE WARRANTY COMPANY THAT THEY ONLY HAD 45 DAYS TO COMPLETE THE SERVICE AND MY ORGINIAL REQUEST DATE WAS 1/9/2009 AND THAT THEY NEEDED TO COMPLETE THE SERVICE SOON , THEY ADVISED THAT THE 45 DAYS BEGINS THE DAY THE PARTS WERE ORDERED.

3/14/2009: CALLED WARRANTY COMPANY TO INQUIRE ABOUT THE STATUS ON THE TV , I WAS TOLD THAT I WOULD HAVE A RESPONSE WITHIN THE NEXT WEEK.

3/23/2009: RECIEVED A CALL FROM BRANDSMART WARRANTY OFFERING TO REPLACE THE TV WITH A LESSER MODEL THAN THE ONE WE HAVE, WHICH BRANDSMART DOESN'T EVEN SELL ,IT WOULD HAVE TO GET ORDERED FROM AMAZON.COM . OR WE COULD TAKE $698.88 AND BUY WHAT WE WANT.I ADVISED THE SERVICE COMPANY THAT IT STATES IN THE POLICY BOOKLET THAT THEY ONLY HAVE 60 DAYS TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE ITEM THAT WAS OUT FOR SERVICE FORM THE DATE OF LOSS WHICH WAS 1/9/2009. I CALLED THE NUMBER THAT THEY LIST IN THE BOOKLET FOR THE INSURANCE COMPANY BUT IT IS RELATED WITH A WORKERS COMP COMPANY.AFTER ABOUT 2 HOURS ON THE PHONE THE WARRANTY COMPANY TOLD ME THAT EITHER I TAKE WHAT THEY OFFER OR I GET NOTHING. THEY ALSO ADVISED THAT THE 60 DAYS DOESN'T APPLY TO ME BECAUSE IT WASN'T IN AFFECT WHEN I PURCHASED MY EXTENDED WARRANTY. SO I HAVE TO TAKE A TV THAT HAS THE SAME FEATURES NOT THE SAME MAKE OR PRICE. I ADVISED THAT I WILL SEEK LEGAL COUNSEL AND GO TO THE NEWS TO EXPOSE THE SCAM THAT THEY PLAY WITH CONSUMERS.
