You just dropped $400 on a new XBox One and a month later, you get the red ring of death - that tell tale sign that your $400 playtime investment has just gone down the drain. The worst part is that you declined the 2-year extended warranty when you bought the system thinking, “What’s the worst that can happen?” Thankfully, some companies take so much pride in themselves and their products that they offer lifetime warranties, and if you think about it, this speaks volumes about their products’ life expectancies. Here are 7 of those proud companies that offer lifetime warranties.

If you’re familiar with The North Face company, you’re probably also familiar with their slightly above-average prices. If you ask me, these prices are well worth it because of two main factors. One is that The North Face products are very high-quality. The second is that The North Face offers a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products, excluding outlet-bought items, bikes, and eyewear. Footwear is also not covered by a lifetime warranty, however, there is a one-year warranty on these items, which is still more than most other shoe brands can say about their products. You may be paying a little bit more for your merchandise, but you’re also getting the reassurance that your product is going to last as long as you need it to.
2. L.L. Bean

Other stores like L.L. Bean typically offer 90-day warranties… but not L.L. Bean! This company offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee on every one of their products, with no expiration date! In the event that you didn’t save your receipt from the duck boots that you bought three years ago, L.L. Bean will still allow you to exchange them or return them for store credit on a gift card.

Anyone familiar with the Tervis brand knows that these cups are a game-changer in the water bottle world. They come in a variety of sizes, styles, and designs, and with a great selection of accessories. Tervises are a bit more expensive than other generic water bottles, but there is no denying a water bottle that keeps your beverages hot or cold for up to 10 hours AND offers a lifetime warranty!

Kobalt Tools is a brand of tools that is sold exclusively at Lowe’s. All Kobalt Tools come with a lifetime warranty, so if they break, wear out, or simply stop working, Lowe’s will replace them for free. This is extremely smart on Lowe’s part, as it gets people in the door and keeps them coming back for more. Why buy tools somewhere else and risk throwing money away if anything happens to them, when you could buy them from Lowe’s and be backed by a lifetime guarantee?

Perhaps one of the most common brands of lighters is Zippo. Zippo products always seem to stand the test of time. These things don’t ever seem to age, and because of this, these windproof lighters, as well as many of Zippo’s other products, come with lifetime warranties. Most lighters these days are disposable because, well, let’s face it... they’re just not worth keeping. A Zippo lighter, on the other hand, is an inexpensive investment that IS totally worth it. Just remember to save your receipt for proof of purchase!

Most shoes have ZERO return policy once they’re worn. Even the $150 Jordans that everyone is sporting these days are non-returnable once they’re worn outside of the store. Dr. Martens seem to be one of the only exceptions. Although they’re not the cheapest shoes in the world, one of the things you’re paying for is the peace of mind that the company will cover any repair or replacement expenses for life. Simply contact the company directly, be prepared to provide proof of purchase, and you’ll be all set!
