Warranty Elephant aims to make sure that you never again try to get your purchases repaired only to realize that the warranty has just run out. Signing up for the site is a simple and quick process and you can soon start to enter your warranty information. There’s no substitute for entering the item details by hand, but you can choose from a pick list of manufacturers and items to make the process easier. Once that’s complete, you’ll enter the purchase date, manufacturer’s warranty, along with any extended warranty information. You can also input the service contact information or add notes. A useful feature is the ability to scan in your purchase receipt and keep this copy attached to your warranty entry.
Once your information has been entered, you can forget about it until you need it or until Warranty Elephant sends you a reminder of an impending warranty expiration. You get reminder emails at six months, one month and one week before the warranty expires, so you can arrange servicing or repair in good time. That’s all there is to the site, and it’s a potentially useful service.

Yeah, well, don’t rejoice so fast, the website isn’t working anymore, unfortunately. I was pretty happy the interface is simple and I won’t have to get mad because there are a lot of things to remember, but I guess I have to look for something else. It’s really a shame, though…
