EXTENDED WARRANTIES AND SERVICE CONTRACTS explains that if you’re buying a car, an electronic device, or a major appliance, you may be offered the chance to buy an “extended warranty” or service contract. Both service contracts and warranties provide repair or maintenance for a specific time. But there's an important difference: a warranty is included in the price of an item; a service contract costs extra. It's an add-on that might not be worth the price.
