I have a problem with adding “extra” costs onto any purchase I make.
I’m not the woman who signs up for extended warranties or forks over extra money for insurance; I would rather hold on to my money until the afternoon comes that I have no chance except to replace a broken item, than pay proactively for a afternoon that may never come.
I know this may not be the best way of doing things, but I’d rather hold on to a sure thing than gamble on a disaster. I recently learned, but, that some extra costs are legitimately necessary when you make a sizable purchase. My friend and I purchased a modern cooling system about two years ago, as well as at the time my buddy and I were gave a preventative maintenance service package which I promptly turned down. I couldn’t imagine adding an extra $100 to the costly purchase my buddy and I already made, as well as figured that my buddy and I would pay for any AC repairs that came along in the future. Boy, was that a mistake. Last month the cooling system failed as well as I had no option but to call our Heating as well as Air Conditioning professional for assistance. The repair was astronomical, but there was no chance besides handing over the money so my buddy and I could go back to using our central cooling system. Afterwards the Heating as well as Air Conditioning contractor let me know that this breakdown could have been avoided with correct preventative service, as well as proposed I sign up for their annual check up… For once in my life, I got over my aversion to paying proactively, as well as handed over the membership fees immediately.
