Have You Ever Been Offered Extra Product In Lieu Of a Warranty?

I recently placed an order directly with a manufacturer for 100 LED 4-ft T8 tubes. The product normally comes with a 5-year replacement warranty.

They were discontinuing the line and wanted to know if I would consider taking 5 tubes for free instead of a warranty. Has anyone heard of this practice?

Certainly has advantages to both parties, IF the bonus is big enough.

Would you trade your camera warranty if you got a free one for every ten you bought?
