Service Protection Advantage SPA refused to prorate unused premium for 4 unused years of coverage. Internet
I purchased a 5-year extended warranty for my GE Profile Dishwasher in mid 2012. After many repairs, we decided it wasn't worth the hassle anymore because it leaked and repair work was usually sub par. I called SPA in April 2013 and was told by one of their authorized representatives that the $344.00 premium for the unused 44 months of coverage would be prorated and returned to me. I needed to send them a letter of cancellation with refund instructions, which I did.
When I called SPA today (May 10, 2013), to check on my refund I spoke to Dave (Operator 0243) and he informed me that the fine print Terms and Conditions would not allow a prorated refund because I had repairs that totalled $500.00. As such, my refund would be zero. I told him that had I known that, I would have kept the extended warranty for another 4 years. Told me that they would not reinstate the policy and I would have to buy a new policy. Said that I needed to read the T&Cs carefully and that there are many unqualified SPA Agents that don't understand their policies very well. I was told Buyer Beware!
I am now without a\n extended service policy and am not able to reinstate the balance of my 5-year extended service warranty on my GE Dishwasher. This is a total ripoff, sad that companies like this are not regulated by the Govenement and they can get away with such unethical business practices. How many people are qualified to read the fine print. I was never given a copy of the T&Cs from SPA, guess that's my problem.
Stay away from these guys.
