We’re always looking for ways to save money, and one surefire way to do that is to buy products from companies with lifetime warranties. So they will repair or replace something if it breaks.

You may spend a bit more upfront, but quality items — and those with awesome lifetime warranties — can end up saving you money in the long run.

From backpacks to knives, here’s a list of 20 brands that offer lifetime warranties with no strings attached — plus 31 that cover manufacturer defects forever.

Note: If you purchase an item with a lifetime warranty or guarantee, make sure you keep the receipt and remember where you keep it. Many of these offers require proof of purchase and do not extend to purchases through resellers. Similarly, some companies require customers to register their purchases to be eligible for lifetime protection.

5 Companies That Send People Money When They’re Asked Nicely

When you log into your bank account, how do your savings look? Probably not as good as you’d like.

It always seems like an uphill battle to build (and keep) a decent amount in savings. But what if your car breaks down, or you have a sudden medical bill?

Ask one of these companies to help…

1. Cutco

Knife-maker Cutco was founded in Olean, New York, in 1949. It offers a “forever guarantee” that extends to knives given as gifts or hand-me-downs. The guarantee includes free sharpening to help extend the life of the knife — you just pay shipping.

“We want every Cutco owner to be satisfied forever, and when the product is passed along, we will continue to back that pledge,” says the company’s website.

“If at any time you are not satisfied with the performance of your product, we will correct the problem or replace the product.”

2. JanSport

Parents sending their kids off to school have long recognized backpack-maker JanSport for its top-notch warranty. Founded in 1967, JanSport guarantees nearly all of its backpacks, messenger bags, fanny packs and hiking bags.

“JanSport branded products covered by this warranty are warranted to the original owner against manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product,” JanSport says on its website.

The lifetime warranty covers defects such as ripped seams, defective zippers and broken buckles. It does not cover damage from normal wear and tear, such as fading or scuffing.

3. Manduka

This California-based company guarantees many of its yoga mats for life, even if the product wears out from regular use. Manduka notes that its mats last about 10 years when cared for properly.

A Manduka PRO yoga mat will cost you $138, but the price tag may well be worth it if you practice regularly and your mat wears out. The guarantee is a one-time offer, and it is not included if the mat is purchased through resellers other than Manduka Yoga or Amazon. The guarantee is not applicable to all mats. The PRO Extra Large is a multi-purpose mat and is not included in the lifetime guarantee.

4. Feetures

Feetures is a family-owned sock maker in North Carolina. This company makes high-performance socks for runners and other athletes, and it’ll offer you a replacement pair or refund at any time through its lifetime warranty. Just click the link to see how easy it is to get a replacement.

5. Eddie Bauer

This outdoor gear and clothing maker stands behind its products so much it offers an unconditional lifetime guarantee.

“We design all our products to last, and we test and manufacture to the highest quality standards,” the company states on its website. “If your Eddie Bauer product has a defect in materials or workmanship, you may return it, with proof of purchase, within one year, for a replacement or refund back to the original form of payment.”

Talk to someone who uses tools regularly, and you’ll probably hear about Craftsman’s warranty.

Many of the company’s tools, including wrenches, hammers, screwdrivers, ratchets and sockets, are eligible for replacement over the lifetime of the product — free of charge.

According to the company’s website, you can return a product that has failed to perform “for any reason” to a retail partner with “no proof of purchase required.” Other products must be under warranty to be repaired or replaced. This page provides a full breakdown of how Craftsman handles repairs and replacements.

7. Osprey

Osprey’s “All Mighty Guarantee” ensures that if you buy one of the company’s bags or backpacks, it’s guaranteed for life.

The brand’s motto: Any reason, any product, any era.

“Osprey will repair any damage or defect for any reason free of charge—whether it was purchased in 1974 or yesterday,” Osprey’s website says.

“If we are unable to perform a functional repair on your pack, we will happily replace it.”

8. Vermont Teddy Bear

If you buy a stuffed bear from Vermont Teddy Bear, it’s backed by the company’s lifetime warranty.

VTB has some fun with it, too, and encourages you to send your bear to its “Bear Hospital.” You’ll need to fill out a bear hospital form to admit your loved one to the hospital, where the “Bear doctor” will nurse it back to full health in three to four weeks.

9. Duluth Trading Company

Duluth Trading Company, which makes clothing, outerwear, footwear and other items, offers a “No Bull Guarantee” on its products.

11. Zippo

Zippo makes lighters, hand warmers and knives. Its warranty motto on its windproof lighter is: “It works or we fix it free.”

“We don’t make that promise lightly,” Zippo says.

“We know that behind every Zippo Windproof Lighter sent for repair is an owner depending on our promise to get it back in working order. Whether a Windproof Lighter is five years, 25 years, or 50 years old, it will serve as a dependable source of flame for years to come — we guarantee it!”

12. Leupold

Leupold, based in Beaverton, Oregon, makes binoculars, scopes and rangefinders used by golfers, hunters, security personnel and police.

The company will replace its riflescopes, binoculars and spotting scopes (whether you’re the original owner or not) forever thanks to its lifetime warranty.

“You don’t need proof of ownership or a warranty card, and there’s no time limit,” the company says.

“We do this because we believe in superior quality and craftsmanship, and we’re confident your Leupold won’t let you down.”

Vermont sock maker Darn Tough Socks offers a 100% unconditional lifetime guarantee on its socks, which are, apparently, pretty darn tough.

“If these aren’t the longest-lasting socks you’ve ever owned, you can return them to us for another pair. No receipt needed, just the pair in question,” the company’s website states.

It also says its warranty has no strings and no conditions.

15. L.L. Bean

If you’ve purchased something from L.L. Bean in the last century, you’ve probably heard of its legendary lifetime warranty. The Maine-based company makes clothing, shoes, outdoor gear, backpacks and other items that are covered.

You can send back an item purchased from L.L. Bean for any reason for up to one year from the time of purchase. After a year, the company will “consider any items for return that are defective due to materials or craftsmanship,” its website states.

You must be the bag’s original owner and have used it for travel by “air, car, train, boat and foot” for damage to be covered. To qualify, the problem must “impair the functionality of the product.”

The company won’t hang you out to dry if the battery dies, either. Away guarantees the electronic components inside its suitcases for two years.

19. Briggs & Riley

Celebrating its 30th year in business, Briggs and Riley is serious about its lifetime guarantee on fashionable bags, luggage and backpacks.

Patagonia says it will repair damage due to normal wear and tear “at a reasonable charge.”

24. REI

Though REI got rid of its famous no-questions-asked lifetime return policy in 2013, the company will still let you return items that have manufacturing defects at any time as part of its limited warranty.

REI will also let you return an item for any reason for up to one year after you bought it if you are an REI member (that drops down to 30 to 90 days if you’re not a member).

25. Nordstrom

The department store Nordstrom has a famously generous return policy. Technically, there isn’t a return policy, but they’ll take back or exchange nearly any item for any reason at any time.

“We stand behind our goods and services and want customers to be satisfied with them,” explains the company’s website.

The classic insulated products come with a lifetime guarantee. If Tervis’ staff determines, after an inspection, that an item has a material defect or a problem due to workmanship, the company will replace it for free.

Legacy stainless steel items (which have a lowercase “tervis” logo) come with a limited five-year guarantee. Tervis Traveler stainless steel items (which have an uppercase “TERVIS” logo) are guaranteed for two years.

However, the warranties do not cover normal wear and tear, improper care or abuse. They also do not cover accessories.

Wüsthof has been making knives and other kitchen tools since 1814, and it offers a lifetime warranty for defects in workmanship and materials.

31. Rainbow Sandals

Jay “Sparky” Longley began making sandals in his Laguna Beach garage in 1972. Now, if you buy a pair of his flip-flops, they’re guaranteed “for the lifetime of the sole,” according to the company’s website.

“The sandals will be eligible for warranty until you have worn through anywhere on the top or bottom layer of the sole.”

This Seattle-based company has made luggage, watches, outdoor gear and other items since 1897.

Dirty items will be sent back for cleaning before repair, too.

Every Big Green Egg ceramic cooker comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

The warranty covers “materials and workmanship on all ceramic components (including dome, base, damper top, fire box, and fire ring),” according to the manufacturer.
