Have you noticed the increase in warranty promotion ? Mass merchants have pushed warranties for many years, but in recent times it seems they are increasing the advertising on the warranties, instead of telling you how great the product is.
 Even car companies are now telling you how great the warranty is instead of how great the car is. One of them is even offering to let you bring the car back in 30 days if you’re not satisfied ! It seems to me that if the product is manufactured to be as good as it can be, there is not much need to have a lengthy warranty. If there is a small chance for a defect, it will usually show up in the first year of use anyway.
 The way I see it, the retailers that heavily promote buying a longer warranty, are essentially selling the warranty instead of selling the cheap vacuum that is warrantied. They know it was designed to only last one year, so they want to make more profit on selling the extended warranty, and they want to appease you by giving you a replacement for free. Personally I would rather purchase a vacuum cleaner that doesn’t fail, than a vacuum cleaner with a replacement guaranty. Does it make since to buy a vacuum that you know will fail in one year, and buy the extended warranty to cover yourself, so it will be replaced ? Why not buy a vacuum that will do a better job, and won’t fail ?
 I’m not what you would consider an environmentalist, but even I can see, that it makes more since to purchase a vacuum cleaner that will last more than a year or two. Even if you get it replaced for free, what happens next year when the free one fails ? Now you’ve put 2 dead vacs in the landfill ! If you purchase wisely, you can go 10, 15, 20 years or more before you have to discard a vacuum cleaner.
 Support your local vacuum store, and do yourself a favor, by purchasing a quality vacuum cleaner that will do a better job, and last longer. It will be money well spent, and if you are concerned about the environment, you’ll be helping there too.
