Need Info Around Warranty

Hi Guys,

I bought a Pentax K-S2 back in June along with 18-135 WR lens. The camera is doing just fine. I forgot to purchase the additional 2 yr cover within 30 days of purchase. I checked with the vendor i bought - PopFlash in California - they told they can't change date of purchase.
I checked with Adorama - their additional warranty product page does not say buy within 30 days of purchase of camera from any retailer - checked with their support - they told buy within a year. Called B&H - they told the same 30 days theory.
I tried to register my product on ricoh imaging usa site but it does not let me do so - because product and model it not coming in dropdown.

I am a bit confused - Should i keep rushing to get this additional warranty in some way possible or rely on fact that pentax will remain good even after an year or so. Please advise if it is still possible to purchase the additional warranty.

Thanks,
Anuj

How about buying a extended warrantee from Mackcamera? But I think they're 30 days too - worth a try!

Hey Anuj,

Just a thought, did you pay for the camera on a credit card? If so the card provider may offer an additional 12 months warranty on top of the manufacturers. Not sure how common this is, but might be worth double checking.

You can't get the Pentax warranty extension outside of the 30-day window. You could get a third-party warranty, though.

Thank Barnzy, You reminded me of a sweet benefit of my Chase Sapphire which i had overlooked.
It does say - "Extends the time period of the U.S. manufacturer's warranty by an additional year, on eligible warranties of three years or less."
