Warranty vs Money back guarantee

Some people seem to be confused about the difference between a warranty and a money back guarantee. Let me try and clear this up.
A money-back guarantee, also known as a satisfaction guarantee, is essentially a simple guarantee that, if a buyer is not satisfied with a product or service, a refund will be made.
A warranty a written guarantee, issued to the purchaser of an article by its manufacturer, promising to repair or replace it if necessary within a specified period of time.
Simply speaking, if you purchase a product with a one year warranty, use it for 6 months, then ask for a full refund, the seller is NOT under any obligation to do so. If the product is not performing as it was intended to the warranty promises that the seller or manufacturer (whoever issued the warranty) will repair or replace the failing product.
Know what you are getting at the time of purchase. Neither a warranty or a money back guarantee are in any way to be used as “free rent” or a “free trial” unless specified at the time of purchase.
I hope this helps.
