Credit card extended warranty

Good news story:
In the last year, I've taken advantage of my credit cards' extended warranty twice, and both times happy result with minimal effort on my part.
I did have to scrounge up some old documentation for my claim with Chase, but start to finish I think it took a week to get my claim approved (and, I no longer had that card).
I just filed a claim through my AMEX, and got a statement credit posted the NEXT DAY. Can't beat that.
Granted, in both cases the amounts involved were small - $80 and $40 - but even so it was gratifying.

That's good to know. I always wondered how many hoops one had to jump through for these extended warrantees. What additional documentation did the credit card require to process your claim?

I found it incredibly easy with my Discover card. I had bought a Kenmore refrigerator and we had some issues with it about 6 months after the 1 year warranty period ended. I got it fixed, sent them the documentation and they sent me a check for $700.

Chase wanted copy of the warranty and my charge receipt; I am not the most organized person but eventually I did find that receipt.
AMEX asked for nothing!

Used Amex. CC a few times. Great. Needed to provided copy of original
receipt, copy of warranty, and Amex. statement. Filling out paperwork
and phones calls, a hassle. But got statement credit a few times.

ie. laptop broke. Got estimate for repair, got statement credit. Did not
repair, bought new laptop. $300+ credit.

stolen/lost ipod. Got statement credit for new one.
Had to provide police report.

laptop chargers - got reimbursed for power cords/charger.
