K-30 Extended Warranty Update

It looks like B&H have updated their web site. The extended warranty previously marketed for the K-5 and K-r now also applies to the K-30:

Pentax Two-Year Extended Warranty for the K5, KR, K-30 80227 B&H

Most excellent. It is as we were first told but it's good to have it confirmed.

Hate that the fine print says the extended warranty is not valid in Florida. Are there any options for us down here in the FLA?

2yr extended Warranty info

I live in Virginia and was worried about purchasing the 2 year warranty. I spoke to a Pentax customer service rep about this and they said Pentax would honor the warranty regardless of where you live. B&H said they would sell me the warranty as well. I think the stipulation applies for Florida and Virginia retailers only. The warranty should be valid as long as you are able to purchase it.

If you live in Virginia or Florida and you try to use the extended warranty, the feds will come and lock you up and you'll end up sharing a cell with the guy who cut the "Do not remove under penalty of law" label off his mattress.

Funny you bring that up, store owner in Detroit just got busted for that. He was removing the tags and reselling them as custom made matress. He went down in flames on a local news investigation, I'm sure there's more to follow now that he has been... well.. exposed.


Getting back to 'is there another option. There's is that Mack warranty place, but I haven't used them.

The legislatures in Va and Fla decided they know better than the consumers, that extended warrantys are ripoffs, and they have to protect you. The laws in both are pitched as consumer protection acts.
