Consumer Reports: Skip extended warranty

(WFLX) - Consumer Reports says don't purchase the extended warranty when you go to buy that television, computer or camera you've been wanting.

It says most products are reasonably reliable these days, and purchasing an extended warranty can increase the price of an item by a third or more.

Consumer Reports also cautions an extended warranty doesn't always guarantee you'll get the item fixed.
