Target's extended warranty has a "clause" that states that they have the option of repairing or refunding the original purchase amount.

Sometimes it is cheaper and/or less hassle for them to just give you your money back. Especially when it is in the form of a Target gift card, which you can only spend at Target...

As usual, they sell extended warranties for an additional source of income. Most things don't fail during the coverage period. And some folks forget that they even purchased an ext warranty. And yet others don't want to deal with the running around that they have to do to have it repaired or replaced.

And Target counts on that...
