That sucks, TBH I didn't even really NEED an extended with my moderate usage on the standard, but because it was only $25 I figured why not...definitely worth it. If you need a heavy duty battery, then I'd still recommend forking over $50 for it if you can. Might be able to find a Black Friday weekend deal on batteries or something too... Edit: OH!! And also, when I went to get mine, I called in the store I was going to and asked and the guy told me 3 times that it wasn't still going on, but I had JUST read from people on here they had still gotten it so I prodded and probed and he was like "alright hang on, let me ask my supervisor," comes back 10 seconds later and says "yeah it's still going on." So, you know...just throwin that out there.
