    6 Things You Should Know About About Our Protection Plan

    Warranties are a funny thing; most of us scoff at the cost of a warranty at the time of purchase, thinking “what could possibly happen”, or “warranties never seem to cover anything if something does happen” so we smile while declining to purchase the extended warranty. However, it’s a decision we always regret when something does happen, and we hear those fateful words “Did you purchase the extended warranty?”. According to Forbes, furniture is one of the largest purchases you will make, next to a home, car, retirement and education. And while we purchase insurances and warranties for each of these, why do we continue to ignore the warranty for our furniture?

So, let’s take a few minutes to discuss with one of our top DM (District Manager’s) what options are available when it comes to protecting one

But your mattress could look fine, yet still need to be replaced. We use our mattresses every day, approximately 1/3 of our lifetime. And year after year, your mattress is collecting dust mites, bacteria, mold and fungus. Multiplying. This accumulation can cause asthma, allergies, rashes, and respiratory issues. So it’s important to protect and keep your mattress clean with sheets, covers and protectors. Especially, since we can’t toss the mattress in a washing machine. Did you know: the average person replaces their mattress every 9 years, some even keep their mattress for 20 years. Would your running shoes last 9 years? It’s important to point
