Well where do I start. contacted HP this last week for an issue I was having with my HP 6500A Plus printer all-in-one and less than a month of owning the printer experienced issues related to memory card error as well as the printer eventually not wanting to power on. I contacted HP which they confirmed from their end I had a hardware issue in the printer and that I could return it to Costco or have HP send me out a replacement, which I said I would take it back to Costco where I originally purchased it, escalated the call to a Case Manager who would contact me within 48hrs, which they called the next day and re-assured me for all the hassles I was getting and going thru, that I would have an extended warranty applied to the new printer regardless if it was the same model or different one. Just yesterday I went and returned the malfunctioning printer back to Costco, which was awesome about the return and got an HP 8500A Plus all-in-one printer, setup successfully setup and working great with no issues until I called them today on Sunday 04/03/2011 and spoke with an agent who then tranferred me to a supervisor, who was no help at all, in fact he basically said I am sorry you feel this way, their isn't anything we can do right now and we are not going to give you an extended warranty. I then said, "Excuse me, was told I would have an extended warranty and that all I needed to do was provide a serial # and product # as requested" to switch over the extended warranty. He then said, is their anything else I can assist you with?" I was rather shocked,  simply because I have many and I mean meany years of Call center experience and I have never been treated like this ever over the phone and my point is I have been lied too. Below is a chat log with one of the agents over chat that I thin is very important for all to see, as you read the chat log, you will notice their was no care in my request outside of brushing me off.
