Assurant and Amazon Amazon sells warranty plans from Assurant on ineligible items
*Consumer Comment: Amazon's fault not Assurant
Almost 3 years ago I bought my washer and dryer on Amazon as a bundle. Amazon offered a 3 year extended warranty kitchen appliance plan and I purchased it as well as it was a large investment. Yesterday my dryer broke and I was so happy to remember the warranty I purchased had one more month before it expired! How lucky right. However when I contacted Assurant today to get it repaired, the agent told me my purchase wasn't eligible as I purchased the products as a bundle.
She kindly said it is only eligible on single item purchases. Why did Amazon let me purchase a warranty on a bundle that wasn't even eligible?! If my dryer had not failed today, I would never have called Assurant to file a claim. They would have essentially scammed me out of money for a warranty that doesn't protect what I purchased. Can you imagine the scale of this scam and how much money Assurant scams customers of their money on a daily basis?!
Amazon and Assurant should be ashamed and they should have practices in place that this type of purchase could not be made. Assurant has said they are going to fully refund my warranty, but I am simply floored by the fact that they would not honor the warranty they sold me based on the basic principles of honesty and ethics. I am going to make sure I share this experience on any and every website so others won't be scammed and hopefully Amazon and Assurant will take precautions to prevent this from happening to others.
