you have to ask dell, b/c they have promotions with rebates etc. just know that the third and fourth year is far cheaper than adding the second year on to the warranty. i had listed the cost somewhere on this forum before with the promotions of that time.
it's something like $200 for the second year then $65 for third and another $65 for the fourth year. if you get the two years, and decide that you want to extend it before the two years is up, you will pay more than $65 for that extra year (even though it seems that it would be the third year...you are actually paying one year so $200). if that makes sense. good way of looking at it is that you get package deal for having a longer warranty period and get charged the one year rate every time you want to add just one year
before the 45 days (extended warranty only, not complete care which you can only get 30 days from invoice date) you will get the whatever promotion rate. after 45 days, the second year is prorated.
