My 13 year son (just turned 13 a week ago) bought a $20.97 webcam.  The clerk checking him out made the pitch for the Home Replacement Plan for $7.99.  My son, who did not know better, agreed.  There lies the problem!!  This was a total, fully corporate orchestrated rip-off!  The clerk knew that he was taking advantage of my son's youth and inexperience.  Who in their right mind, except for a thief and scam artist, would sell an $8.00 replacement plan on a $20 webcam.  I went back to the store and was refunded the cost of the plan.  I pointed out to the manager that this was wrong.  He insisted that they were only doing their job.  If RadioShack's policy is to steal from their customers with gimmick's like this - then the public should know.  I will make sure to get the word out in all media forms of my experience with RadioShack.  This crazy and unethical practice must stop.  I will not set foot in another RadioShack - and I hope enough people will get the message and follow my lead. 
What a pitiful way to make a profit.  I would never have expected that a staple business like RadioShack would lower it's standards to such a disgraceful level.  Shame on RadioShack!!!

 Granted they seam like a ripoff they actually do work i get skull candy headphones at radioshack every three months and you know what, they break every three months they are 19.99 and the replacement plan is 7.99, i dont mind paying only 7.99 instead of twenty every time, i get my gift card every time and yes it may be annoying i have to wait 3-5 days to get my new headphones but the bottem line is i am getting back 20 bucks and a pair of headphones for free, if your camara breaks which it can by falling or being pulled on you are going to be out of luck and have to spend probably more since that model wont exist good luck on your gamble but im sticking with the insurance.
