For most companies it is just a sales gimmick but there are exceptions.
Some use the term but don't honor anything and aren't around long enough to complain to if you have issues.
Some do honor replacement or repair warranties but in some cases they might not if they think know they are being scammed or the merchandise is deemed too expensive...there is always some excuse they can use to not honor a warranty claim.
Some do honor and believe lifetime warranties.
Tesoro did it for everyone no matter who owned them for years until they got smart, did the math, and figured out how much that actually cost them over the years...then they finally changed to an original owner lifetime warranty.
Then there are some very rare companies like Zippo.
They state they have lifetime warranties and they mean they have lifetime fix or replace warranties...and prove it.

Made it to another, new decade..."Last year’s resolution was to lose 20 pounds by Christmas. Only 30 pounds to go."
