I'm looking at getting a Toshiba laptop. It will actually be an HTPC of sorts, but the question I have is about extended warranty.

Does Costco have any extended warranty beyond 1 extra year? I have no membership, but will buy a membership if I decide to buy there. TigerDirect, Best Buy, Staples, Future Shop etc all have extended warranty, but I can't find any on Costco website beyond their extra year, which is great and reason enough that I may buy there. Granted the one extra year is great. Perhaps that is enough. Just checking if they offer more.

Does Costco have a credit card? Many other places offer credit cards and zero interest for long periods as long as you pay them off before they are due. I have always found this saves me money.

thanks in advance for any info,

Costco extend their coverage for laptops (included in their price). But you would have to read the tag since I think it is not the same from say Toshiba to an HP or Acer. It is usually prominently displayed. Three years rings a bell. Which is awesome since it is in-store returns AFAIK.

Costco credit card is AMEX (they don't accept MC or VISA in-store) with your membership on the reverse side. You get up to 2% back on external purchases (sliding scale). If you have the executive member ship (about $100) then you get 2% back on Costco purchases as well.

They do not offer no interest repayment options. Just the regular AMEX billing cycle.
