K01 warranty question

I ordered a k01 last Sept 01. I haven't received it yet, but I'm interested in getting the pentax 2 years extended warranty Pentax 2 Years Extended Warranty for K5 / K30 / K01 / K series DSLR 80227 The thing is it stated that "NOT VALID IN FLORIDA. THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA OR WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW." what does it mean? Cause I'm from Virginia does it mean that I'm can't get one of these for my k01?

Also is this true?

I checked on the issue and the VA (and other places) exclusion is from SELLING it in VA, not the validity if it is purchased elsewhere. I bought mine from B&H for a K-5 after verifying it is valid for a VA resident if bought from NY. Pentax will honor the warranty.

Yes, your State Legislature decided that you are too ignorant to protect yourself from ripoffs and they had to do it for you. So, 48 states enjoy the $19 2-year extended warranty (definitely NOT a ripoff at that price when it even includes a tuneup) but FL and VA residents are out of luck. Sorry.

Residents of Virginia. Pentax will not honor it if the return address is VA or FL nor if the sales receipt for either item (camera or warranty) is from VA or FL. They'd just be following the law.

Hmm interesting, thank you. So the quote I got from "imtheguy" is not real?

No idea. Your state says that such are not legal for sale to VA residents. Companies can do as they wish, just like individuals, but most in my experience just don't fight those sorts of laws - too costly.
