Just a correction for you, the Consumer Credit Act *can* cover you when using a debit card, provided the purchase was made using your overdraft. The act covers all credit given for the purpose of a purchase.

I bought a laptop 2 months ago from Currys, one of the keys has come off the keyboard and i did not take their extended warrenty. I went to them they said call the manufacturer as its wear and tear, the manufacturer said 'Nowhow' (Currys) have bought my warrany and they can not help. I went back to Currys and surprise I'm not covered but they will replace it for £50 + parts... I feel sickened that this now market monopoliser is taking advantage and suppressing my rights. Does anyone have any ideas?
