The place I got the 2 year extended warranty gave me $50 off my system(I bought a few accessories and games) if I bought the warranty. It was like getting the warranty for free, so why not! If you buy your system at a bigger electronics store see if they will give you a deal, they just might!
I'm not new to here but I have a question: You know when you play the wii fit and you do lunges it will pop up a box and say something about a double wammay of also doing a yoga pose as a 'workout' do you know where we can see a list of these workouts?

First, you have a one year warranty from Nintendo, just by buying the system. Second, you can extend it online at Nintendo.com for 3 months for free, just by signing up for an account (free) and registering your Wii system.
AND even after the warranty, it will cost about $50 to get it repaired (the cost of the warranty you're talking about--and only spent if there actually is a problem, not spent and then not used if the system works fine for two years).
SO, I say no, you shouldn't get the warranty. And while there might be problems right out of the box, usually Nintendo products are built to last and can take some abuse.
We've had ours since Nov. 2006 and haven't had any problems other than our 19 month old (a few months ago) pulled on Daddy's controller and pulled it off of the top of the entertainment system--the only thing it did was slightly break the faceplate (the cover piece where the discs go in) so that the reset button sometimes activates--but that's rare, even...and can be fixed cheaper just by buying a new case for the Wii.

Hello and welcome to the team...I would get the warranty even though you don't have kids playing..systems are not always reliable...I've seen and heard of many ppl systems breaking down b/c of simple defects in production...so while i think your warranty is a bit high i would still get it...
If You're tired or starting over stop giving up

Hi 2 all! I just got a wii, I haven't even set it up yet, hopeing to later today.
My question, should I get the 'one time replacement warrenty'? It's $45 for 2 years, 1 time replacement. I'm 50 and I will not have any childern using it.
I'm glad this community is here, it is one of the reasons I went out and got the wii. I kind of wanted one when they 1st came out, but didn't want to spend the moola. Once I started here, I needed to work out, so started swimming everyday. Now that it is getting cooler, I will not be able to swim. Of course I could do many different things for exercise, but went with the wii to help get a workout in. I normaly use hand held games.
Anyway, thanks for the help!
