does anyone want the $100 referral for warranty direct?

I'm thinking seriously of getting a warranty from WD and saw this from their website.....

Referral Program

Are you a current contract holder? Tell a friend or relative about us and earn a reward.

Refer a friend or relative who would benefit from a Warranty Direct plan. If they purchase a qualifying warranty, we'll send you a $100 U.S. Savings Bond. Ask your Certified Warranty Advisor for details or check the back of your contract booklet.

Not interested in the savings bond, but nice of you to make the offer to the group.

Just wanted to say hello to you, I am over in Kingwood not too far away.

Bagwell, I recently purchased an extended warranty from Warranty Direct for my '03 S. I don't usually buy extended warranties but with all the stories I read about Boxsters I changed my mind. I live in the Clear Lake area. Good Luck!

Warranty Direct Referral

I'm sorting through WD's plans and options right now. So if you want the referral $$$, please let me know. Has anyone had experience recently / whenever with a WD claim? Advise is welcomed. My 99 qualified for for 2 or 3 plans with options, since I've only got 9400 miles on her.

I too am curious if anyone has filed a claim with WD and their experience? I was looking into the MajorCare MBI, or the XtraCare MBI. The cost doesn't seem exhorbitant given the peace of mind I think it would provide me. For my 99' it works out to be $70-80/month for 1k miles a month for 37 months depending on which coverage I pick. (~$2700-2900 total)

Specifically, the policy states:
"...engine block and heads are covered if damaged by the Failure of an internally lubricated moving part. "

That sounds mysteriously specific. I interpret it to mean engine damage due to a blown head gasket would not be covered. Or a damaged engine due to a busted liner or cylinder sleeve would not be covered either.

I'm probably going to give them a call....

Thanks,

Hi Pbunny,

I sent a private mail about the referral and answered some of your claim questions. Take care,

Mike

Laresz2,

I have filed 3 small claims with Warranty Direct so far. I have my car serviced at RUF here in Dallas and they simply call Warranty Direct with my contract number and Warranty Direct pre-authorizes the claim and pays Ruf directly. I guess they pay with a corporate card but I'm not sure. I have the zero deductible option and so far with my claims, all I've been out is the price of the belt to drive the water pump. I guess they don't cover belts. Warranty Direct has paid out about $1100.00 or so in claims for me. If you do go with them, I would appreciate the referral if you are so inclined. Thanks and take care,

i'm also considering a warranty from them, i wonder if they would cover rms issues and yes '' damaged by failure of internally lubricating moving part'' kind of makes me think thats a way for them not to actually cover an engine
