"Warranty question"
Mon 07-Nov-11 04:36 AM by Uscbryan

Irvine, US
          

Hello all

I purchased the d7000 from B&H about 3 weeks ago and it didn't come with the warranty card. A couple of questions. I registered it on the Nikon website, is that the same thing? It never said "warranty registration" just the products I have in "my bag" but it did ask for the serial number. Question 2 is I used my girlfriends credit card to purchase it on my B&H account since her card has no interest and we get points. So the receipt shows her name. Will there be a problem if something happens and it shows the camera registered to me online but her name on the invoice?

Thanks

You don't need the warranty card, registering online is fine. If you put the items into your "bag", then you should be good to go. As far as your girlfriend's credit card/your camera...it shouldn't be an issue.

Neither the warranty card nor the website registration is needed or used by Nikon USA. If you need repairs under warranty, you will need to send them a copy of the sales receipt. As long as yours and hers address match there should be no problems. Otherwise, the lack of a gift receipt may or may not be a problem. Send them an email and find out what the actually policy is.

Thanks everybody. Address is the same, and unless she dumps me she should be around if the camera ever fails.

Tough situation. You may have to propose to her in order to keep your camera warranty valid!

many years ago i overheard my wife said to her GF (about me) - I better let him change cars every 3 years than wives.

so D7000 investment made by your GF might be not so expensive. LOL

Best regards,
Vlad

Exactly - It's in the fine print of the warranty.

"Owner shall remain at the address of record for the entire warranty period. Failure to do so will result in immediate termination of the warranty, deduction of 100 points from the Owner's FICO score, immediate seizure of the warranty item by local authorities and incarceration of the owner during the remaining warranty period for felony abuse of a warranty."

That's why I don't buy EXTENDED warranties.

Disclosure and disclaimer - I'm kidding!

Warranty registration is not necessary in the US.

As long as you have the original sales receipt you will not have any problems getting warranty work done.

When you send a camera in for service you must provide a copy of that sales receipt but they do not require you to provide proof of your identity to ensure it matches the name on the receipt.
