So this isn’t your typical coupon post, but I really want to share this with you guys. I just got back from Sears getting two tires replaced. For right around $50. How you ask??
I had bought 4 new tires last year from Sears because…well…..it was at the mall and I could distract the kids with food and shopping while it was getting done. When they were finished they asked if I wanted their Road Hazard for something like $10. I usually pass up on these things but the man was very nice and with a wink and a nod said yes…I did want it. So I caved. It was just $10.
Well, seriously a week later I was traveling down the interstate and I picked up a piece of metal in one of my brand new tires. I headed to sears and the replaced the tire…free of charge. The road hazard warranty carried on to the new tire.
So that brings me to today. I had a tire with what I thought was a small whole because it kept loosing air. I took my car in to sears and it was a nail in the sidewall, which is unrepairable. Even though I had the tires for well over a year, I was fully covered for it to be replaced because I hadn’t put a lot of wear on them. They also caught that a second tire had a piece of rubber missing that made it unsafe and replaced it under the warranty as well. I paid about $50 today because one of the tires was only 80% covered, and I of course bought the road hazard again.
Those 2 tires would have cost me over $170 today so that $10 Road Hazard plan saved me over $120 today alone. I wanted to share my story with you in case you are like me and generally turn down extra warranties. Some times they do pay off!
