I purchased 42" LCD in 2008 with the protection plan. I just read all the horror stories of not being able to find anyone to honor the plan since Circuit City went out of business.
After a little bit of research, I found a number (1-800-555-4615) and I called today. In turn after a couple of prompts, I was given a number (1-800-878-1167) which I called at 4:11 p.m and was talking to someone at 4:18 p.m from Assurance Illusions. They just set me up with a repairman that is located in my area and will be here tomorrow between 8 a.m. & 12:00 p.m. They do honor the protection plans.
Just thought I'd share with you..
