Xbox 360 Defective and Replacement Process...
Had 360 now for about 3.5 months, light use. Was working fine Dec 8 at lunch when I popped it on for a few mins to see what might be new to
download, all was well. Never had an issue to date. That evening I turn it on and get the 3 flashing lights. All the troubleshooting didn't work.
Fortunately I bought extended warranty. Call support and find out that
there is no longer free shipping to MS repair, even with warranty, new policy
as of Dec 1. So I bitch and complain and finally get them to ship it free
due to all my previous issues with trying to even buy an extended warranty
(long story, took 5 calls, 2 faxes, and 3 weeks to get).
So now I'm basically without the 360 till after the new year as both I and
the CSR agreed the chances were slim to nil of getting it back before then
with holiday shipping and days off.
So a new console used lightly and properly with no issues to date just dies
out of the blue, no warning at all. Grand :-|
In terms of the replacement process in Cnaada I understand they send new units, not refurbs so that is a plus I guess.
What expereince have people had with the return process? How long does it typically take to get the return box, ship it back, and receive a replacement unit?
