A quick definition of warranty of fitness:

A warranty of fitness is a promise that the thing you buy will work for the special reason you need it for. It's not enough for the thing to just work normally, it has to work specifically for your needs. This promise is made by the person selling the thing, and it applies to things like toys, clothes, and even cars. The seller has to know what you need the thing for and that you're counting on them to give you something that will work. If you're an expert or bring in someone who knows what they're doing, you might not be able to rely on this promise.

A more thorough explanation:

A warranty of fitness is a type of guarantee that ensures that the goods purchased are suitable for the specific purpose intended by the buyer. This warranty is not satisfied by mere fitness for general purposes. It means that the product must be fit for a particular purpose, even if it is fit for its ordinary purpose.

For example, if a person buys a bicycle for racing, the warranty of fitness ensures that the bicycle is suitable for racing and not just for general use. This warranty applies to retailers, distributors, and manufacturers.

An implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose applies when the seller, at the time of contracting, has reason to know of any particular purpose for which the goods are required, and the buyer is relying on the seller's skill or judgment to select or furnish suitable goods. This warranty may be waived by the buyer if they are an expert or bring in outside experts.

For instance, in Keith v. Buchanan, the plaintiff bought a boat from the defendant for the particular purpose of being "seaworthy." Because the plaintiff's friend, who was experienced with boats, examined the boat before the purchase, the court found that the plaintiff had waived his implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose.

Idk I doubt they can give you 10k cash, lmao, but who knows!
Others will disagree, but max out a credit card if you have to do so.
It's 10K. Not 100K.

10K at 21.51% interest. Lol
19:47
Yeah I would definitely disagree. Without family help when could they realistically pay that off?

If someone can live below the student budget at GULC loans could cover an extra $10K, but Grad PLUS loans still amount to $2 in repayment for every $1 borrowed on a 10-year plan at current interest rates. Not a choice to make lightly.
