J&R D800/E extended warranty on sale for $144.88

Price is $189 elsewhere. I normally don't buy extended warranties but at only 5% of the sales price I think this represents a good deal, and considering the D800/E is a new body with an as-yet unproven reliability track record I think this is a smart purchase.

Here's the link:

Thanks for the link. First time I see a discount of the price for the ESC.

You have to buy the ESC at the latest 2 days before the 1st aniversary of the day the camera was purchased.

the label reads that you must purchase it no later than 10 days after the camera's purchase date, which is correct?

I've got the info above from Nikon USA. Not sure where the discrepancy comes from.

Me too. I just called and they told me you can buy the ESC up to just before the original 1 year warranty expires. I asked him why the D800's ESC says "You must register this ESC with Nikon Inc. within 10 days of your retail purchase of the camera". He said he doesn't know why but assured me the ESC would be in effect even with that requirement not met. Here's a link to Nikon's usual policy on ESC's which confirms what the rep told me over the phone:

I'm a new convert to the nikon world. What's been your experience with nikon's extended warranty and their service department?

Thanks!

Sensor cleaning, routine check ups and AF adjustment are free under warranty. It could easily be billed as a $100+ service when you are out of warranty. I could get the extended warranty just for the cleaning alone!

J&R have it at $169 now (4/24/13); that's still $20 less than B&H sells it for.

warranty from any NIKON seller?

Yes does not have to be the reseller where you got the camera.

3 weeks out from my 1year....

Then it will be too late to buy one.
