Perks of a Using a Credit Card - Purchase Protection

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 - 7:29 AM
In addition to being able to dispute credit card charges due to billing errors, fraudulent purchases or product quality issues, some credit cards offer purchase protection. Bankrate.com has a good review of this:
Payment processors American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa all offer purchase protection on some cards for damage or theft of goods up to 90 days after purchase.

I like the automatic warranty extension by using the credit card.  Even though I haven't had any issue with any recent purchases, it is good to have that extended warranty in case of when you buy a lemon.
