Circuit City Liquidation FAQ: Gift Cards, Warranties and Repairs

Circuit City is liquidating and everything is pretty much a mess. But there are a few points to know if you have been a customer in the recent past, or plan to be soon.

What's Up With Gift Cards?
"Customers holding Circuit City gift cards may redeem them at full value at our stores during the liquidation sales. Once the stores are closed and the company is out of business, the gift cards will have no value."

What's Up With My Extended Warranty?
"Circuit City Advantage Protection Plans (extended warranties) have been backed by third-party independent companies for more than 15 years and as a result, are not impacted by Circuit City's closing...For products covered under Circuit City Advantage, guests can call the toll-free number that is printed on the bottom of the product receipt.

What About My Extended Warranty From A Liquidation Sale?
"Yes, we're making no changes to our Circuit City Advantage Protection Plans. Coverage is national and purchases will still be protected just as they always were." (See extended warranty note above.)

What If Circuit City Is Currently Fixing My Computer?
"[Computer] services already underway at the liquidation stores will be completed promptly, but no additional jobs will be accepted at these stores."

Remember, especially in light of all these grim caveats, that the so-called deals may not be worth the trip. For more Circuit City closing factoids, hit the link. [Circuit City]
