I've seen lots of complaints about kobo customer service, but I have to say they've been very quick. 1 freephone call from me, email with 10 questions within 10 mins, i replied within 10 mins, email asking me to send it to the netherlands later the same day. no complaints here
I'm guessing that it makes a whole lot of sense for folks who have to send their devices a long way away to buy the amped up insurance, if it is available outside of the US and Canada. I don't think it was an option when I bought my Touch last June.
Glad it worked out well for you. Chapters stores in Canada (at least some of them) routinely accepted devices within a year, even though they did not have to more than 30 days out. Now, following the sale of Kobo, my Chapters store doesn't do that, and I no longer shop at Chapters.
