“Lifetime warranty means the lifetime of the product, not your lifetime”

What is a “lifetime warranty”? People often think it’s for the lifetime of the buyer, but this is usually not correct. The “lifetime” can often mean the the lifetime of the product—or the lifetime of the company.

“Lifetime Warranty means Lifetime of the product (usually 5~10 years).. not your Lifetime” was posted on Twitter by Joel on October 31, 2012. “#SavvyConsumer 53: ‘Lifetime warranty’ is open to interpretation & often means the lifetime of the product, NOT your lifetime! Ask ask ask” was posted on Twitter by Elisabeth Leamy on May 17, 2013. “If it says ‘lifetime warranty’ that means the life of the product. NOT your lifetime. #educateyourself” was posted on Twitter by Thekeywestern on January 20, 2019. “I can tell you that a ‘Lifetime Warranty’ only truly covers the ‘typical/average’ lifetime of a product, not your lifetime” was posted on Twitter by wait_wtf on August 4, 2020.

Lifetime warranty
A lifetime warranty is usually a warranty against defects in materials and workmanship that has no time limit to make a claim, rather than a warranty that the product will perform for the lifetime of the buyer. The actual time that product can be expected to perform is normally determined by the custom for products of its kind used the way the buyer uses it.

If a product has been discontinued and is no longer available, the warranty may last a limited period longer.

“Oh, you misunderstand, Sir. Lifetime warranty refers to the lifetime of the product, not your lifetime. *condescending chuckle* The lifetime of this product is clearly passed, so warranty is void. I hope that clears up this little misunderstanding, have a good day.”
