How much is 9 months warranty worth ???

So, I was a little bummed (but I guess I should not have been surprised) to find out that the major difference between purchasing a Canon factory refurbed 7D from B&H, vs from Canon direct (besides a BIG chunk of $) is that Canon has a 1yr warranty, whereas B&H only has 90 days

The price difference is huge though....

Canon @ $1,199 vs B&H @ $829

I'm "strongly" leaning towards B&H for $829...... and then just using / testing the %%$# out of it for the first few weeks..... because "IF" their was a problem, I'm going to make sure they get it back 3 X's in that 90 days, and after that, they can just keep it, and give me a new... well, different one.  I hope it still works like this with a refurb ???

Anyway, would 9 extra months of warranty be worth $370 to you ??? Besides the warranty, is their any other good reason to choose Canon direct, over B&H ?

Much thanks,
