Note "EXTENDED warranty plan", we have these in the UK, as the implicit
warranty is AT TIME OF PURCHASE + reasonable expectations, so a
toothbrush falling apart after a week is included, a stereo dying after
time of no mechanical stress within a month or so (usually they say 90
days) is covered, three years is not, so they sell these extended
warranties, which are more or less actually an insurance policy.
