have you ever tried to get a life time warranty part warrantied after

15 years?? this is hypothetical but they ask for an original dated receipt? have any of you seen one of those little printed out receipts after 15 years?? there just a white piece of paper!!! lol and whats the point of sending in a card if it doesnt mean anything???

Re: have you ever tried to get a life time warranty part warrantied after

I was a warranty guy for a bike company.  People would send in a cracked frame that was 15-25 years old.  I'd always ask for the receipt.  If they had it, I'd cover the warranty.  Problem was the current stock has different technology.  Your 15 year old BMX frame would need a new BB, Headset, fork and possibly brake.  Lifetime warranty is not defined- the lifetime of the consumer or the product.  If you have been riding a BMX bike for 15 years before it fails, you got your money's worth and are kind of a cheapskate.

It said lifetime warranty and didn't specify. The company should honor that and not be a cheapskate.

Re: have you ever tried to get a life time warranty part warrantied after

wow that is the kinda thing that should sink a company!!! if you are gonna tell your customers that you stand behind your work for life you better do it!!! dont just say it cause it sounds good!!!! i understand the problems with not having receipts and stuff. if any company i deal with says i got my moneys worth you better believe that the last money they would ever get from me!!! most of us are willing to pay more for quility in the form of a warranty! especially a life time one. and do on a regular basis!!! and usually thats a companys ground for charging more!!! so whos being the cheapskate????

Well, it's all up to the lawyers decide.  And always note it's a "limited, lifetime warranty".  People would ride a bike for 25 years and the frame would crack.  Not do to a defect in manufacturing, just wear and tear.

If a company specifies lifetime warranty on their products,it means a lifetime unless otherwise,not "ya you got 15 years out of it so you should be happy".

Nobody buys a $50 Snap-on combination wrench and only expects to get 5 years out of it when clearly it's warranteed for a lifetime.

Re: have you ever tried to get a life time warranty part warrantied after

besides whats gonna make a company more money in the long run? keeping someone happy who has bought there products over a 15 year span and the first time there was an issue the company takes care of it no questions asked or a company that says you got your moneys worth??

You guys are switching it around as usual. 

No receipt, no warranty. Stop crying.
