Warranty comparison site

New comparison site for extended warranties now provided by Dixons, Argos and others - as mandated by the Office of Fair Trading, after big concern over people paying too much for (sometimes unnecessary) warranties.

Stores will still be able to sell the warranties at the till so it'll be up to you to check the website on a smartphone while in the shop.

The OFT pints out that most electrical purchases are now made online, so you can have the website in a window to help you while surfing and shopping.

On the other hand, you can't click through from the website to the best deals - so it's a bit clumsy.

It covers 75% of the market for warranties, so there could be a cheaper deal elsewhere.
