Do you guys think I should register it? It goes from 2 to 3 years if you do. But then its tied to the email you signed up with. If you don't the person just needs the invoice.
I'm thinking in terms of resell. I'm sure I won't keep it more that a year.

So your saying you'd save the receipt for a 2 year warranty so you can at least sell it to someone else and provide them the receipt? If you keep your card for 1 yr you can at least sell it to someone else so they at least can have a warranty for another year provided you don't mind giving them your sales receipt with name etc....
Technically Galaxy wouldn't know if they were the original purchaser as long as if they have to RMA they use your name based on the sales receipt they will show.Tough decision
because you give up the additional 3rd year warranty if you don't register within 30 days of purchase. However if you think about it, people change their email all the time. What's the difference if when they contact Galaxy they claim to be you anyway and tell them they have a new email?
