Extended warranty and preodrer

Hi Chuck,
I preordered my K-1 on 2/17/2016 using Paypal. Received the camera during the first week of May.
Am I still qualified to purchase the extended warranty?

According to this thread, it appears that I am not qualified...

Here are the terms. The only thing up for debate would be "date of original purchase". Since you don't get charged until your pre-order ships, I'd consider that to be the date of the purchase itself.

I don't see how Ricoh would object if the warranty were purchased within two months of the US debut of the camera Just be sure to keep your credit card receipt/statement.

Thanks Adam. My only concern is my Paypal is charged on the day of preorder (2/17/2016).
If the 30-day window is strictly counted from the date credit card is charged, then I guess I'm not qualified.
I sent my question to Ricoh via email weeks ago, but they never replied....

As far as I know the date on your invoice, not the date shipped, is the original purchase date.

It sounds like further investigation will be needed for this. I'll reach out to Ricoh and find out if they'd honor this.
