What’s the difference between warrantee and warranty?
It’s personal … and professional.
A warranty is an assurance, guarantee, or confirmation of something like a document, deal, purchase, or product. It legally protects both parties in a professional agreement.
A warrantee is a person to whom a warranty is offered by a warrantor.
Here’s an instance where these words apply.
The customer selected the newest, most high-tech vacuum cleaner and asked the seller about the product’s warranty.
“As warrantor,” the seller answered, “I offer you, as the warrantee, a solid three-year warranty on the vacuum.”
And that’s a wrap.
Wondering if this mixed-up words message is unwarranted? Go get a warrant!
(OK, I gotta write a post about get and got. Maybe next month, after the A to Z Challenge is over.)
