I was reduced from using my car and had to use my husbands. I didn't know his needed a new battery and the car had left me stranded at a gas station. I was able to get it going again and shop online for a battery. I found a great deal online with a coupon at Advance. I ordered it right then, and drove out to get it right away. The service there was quick and nice. I was able to order, pick-up, and have it installed in less than 30 mins!!!! Awesome!!!

Wrong battery listed on web and in store for my car. No problem swapping out in store, other than my time and gas. I received a 15% discount when purchased on line. When I swapped out for correct battery the Manager gave me a hard time and said that I could not received my discount. I told hime that it was not my fault I received the wrong battery. After a little argueing he gave me my discount. I oringinaly bought a gold battery but was told that I could only have a silver. Not a happy camper.

        I hate having to replace ANYTHING!!! So it was no different with my battery. However the entire process was pretty seamless.I went online to purchase, got 30% off! Then I go to pickup the merchandise from the store, and they offered free installation. Great!! Now I have a new battery, 5yr warranty. And I am very satisfied

                        Your warranty begins the day you purchase the battery, and expires at the end of the warranty period printed on your original receipt and Order Confirmation email, or when you sell your vehicle, whichever occurs first. This warranty cannot be transferred to anyone at any time.

                        When you purchase the battery the pro-ration starts. During any time before the pro-rated period ends you can return the battery and get a certain amount of credit towards a new battery. The farther you are into your pro-ration, the less of a credit you will receive on a new batter.
