I have a problem with adding “extra” costs onto any purchase I make.
I’m not the man who signs up for extended warranties or forks over extra currency for insurance; I would rather hold on to my currency until the afternoon comes that I have no option except to update a broken item, than spend money proactively for a afternoon that may never come.
I know this may not be the best way of doing things, however I’d rather hold on to a sure thing than gamble on a disaster. I recently learned, however, that some extra costs are honestly necessary when you make a giant purchase. My friend and I bought a new air conditioner about two years ago, and at the time my associate and I were offered a preventative service service package which I promptly turned down. I couldn’t imagine adding an extra $100 to the lavish purchase my associate and I already made, and figured that my associate and I would spend money for any A/C repairs that came along in the future. Boy, was that a mistake. Yesterday the air conditioner failed and I had no choice however to call our Heating and Air Conditioning professional for assistance. The repair was astronomical, however there was no option besides handing over the currency so my associate and I could go back to using our central cooling system. Afterwards the Heating and Air Conditioning worker let me know that this breakdown could have been avoided with official preventative service, and advised I sign up for their annual check up, and for once in my life, I got over my aversion to paying proactively, and handed over the membership fees instantly.
