EVGA launches warranty amnesty

If you've bought an EVGA graphics card in the last few years and neglected to send in the warranty card, the company has some good news for you: it's launching an amnesty programme, good for this month only.

The EVGA Holiday Redemption scheme takes two forms, one of which is open to those who bought graphics cards featuring a three or ten year warranty promise in 2009 or 2010, and the other for those who bought cards in 2008.

When you buy a piece of hardware that offers an extended warranty, it's often dependent on you filling in a card and posting it off with the original invoice within thirty days - a requirement that is often overlooked until it's too late.

If you've got an EVGA card from 2009 or 2010 that you neglected to register, working or otherwise, EVGA is offering you the chance to activate that extended warranty - but warns that the offer is only good for the current month, and will expire on the 31st of December. If you haven't registered by then, it's officially too late.

If your EVGA card dates from 2008 and has just given up the ghost, you could be in luck as well: if your card had a 10-year warranty that you neglected to register, the company has stated that it will issue an RMA regardless and replace the card with a working model of comparable performance - although you won't get a warranty on the replacement.

Details of both programmes, and the all-important support links for claiming on either, are available on EVGA's dedicated microsite.

Do you applaud EVGA's festive spirit of goodwill, or do you think that companies should be made to honour extended warranty offers regardless of whether the product was registered to a deadline? Share your thoughts over in the forums.
