    I got a real sweet deal on a Canon Speedlite 430ex ii at Best Buy and I bought the extended warranty. Now I'm rethinking it. It was $40 for 2 years. Should I keep it or return that portion of it? I'm going back anyways to use a gift card that I forgot to use...

    That's not too expensive...might as well keep it.
    My 430EX (mk I) is the only camera gear I've ever had warranty service on (the tilt mechanism got stuck/locked up).
