1 . PRODUCT ELIGIBILITY AND TERMS

This Plan applies to fabric, leather and vinyl upholstery, and wood and other hard surface furniture purchased as new, which at the time of purchase included a manufacturer's original written warranty valid in the United States. In order to be eligible for the manufacturer defect coverage portion of the Plan, either the manufacturer's original written warranty or a combination of the manufacturer's original 90-day or more warranty and the selling dealer's warranty must provide at least 12 months parts and labor coverage.

This Plan begins on the date of the product purchase or delivery date, whichever is the latest date, and will provide service to the original purchaser for covered furniture for a total of 3 years or 5 years, as noted on your sales receipt, from the date of delivery. If under the terms listed below, an item becomes accidentally stained or damaged during normal residential use, the Administrator may, at its discretion, either send you a stain removal kit and/or engage a professional technician to service the problem at no cost to you. If the covered stain cannot be resolved, the Administrator, at its discretion, will replace the affected portion or the complete item(s). Replacement items will be the same as or similar to the original item purchased, provided the price of the replacement meets the full liability under the Plan. If an entire item of furniture is replaced, the replacement furniture is not eligible for coverage under this Plan. However, the replacement of a part or piece of furniture does not end Plan coverage. Any furniture originally covered by the Plan and not replaced will remain under coverage for the remaining term of the Plan. Any replaced furniture under this Plan becomes the property of the Administrator. This Plan does not cover pickup, maintenance inspections, crating or delivery freight charges. Replacement parts or furniture will be ordered from the retailer from which you originally purchased your furniture. If the retailer is not able to replace the item originally purchased or provide a satisfactory substitute item, you will be given a refund of the purchase price of this Plan, less any claims payments made to you under this Plan, in lieu of replacement of your furniture and your Plan will terminate.
