Got a dead cell in the RAM on Wednesday, too busy to mess with it until this morning. While shopping I discovered a $60.00 discount at Advance Auto Parts!!

Got a huge first class Johnson Controls battery for 130 bucks with a 3 year free replacement warranty.

What size battery did you buy?

On Wednesday I purchased a G-35 for a neighbor.
The list was $141.99 at AAP. 'Twas their best (3 year) battery.
They had emailed a promotional coupon for 20% off purchases over $100
I clicked on it so I could show the screen (with total price) to my neighbor.
Upon my return to the computer there was a "buy it now and we'll make it a 25% coupon" overlaid ad. So I proceeded.

The box where you enter the promo code was headed "Enter promo code and Easy Perks number here".
I called the 800 number to ask HQ what my membership number was.
The friendly guy in Roanoke couldn't find it so he rattled off another discount code for me to enter.
NOTE: It had 16 digits-just like RockAuto's codes.

I entered it and a red notice came up saying it was invalid BUT an additional $10+ came off the total.

Grand total came to $99.99. Not as good as your 60% code but I'll take it.

As they say: On the day before Thanksgiving you gotta get the job DONE.

Whatever it was it's a BIG one! And it was 60 bucks, not 60%. I would have liked your number better!

The Group 65 for my F150 is $157.99 at Advance.

Even with a coupon, walmart beats that price. ($94)

No offense, that sounds like a great deal but did not fit my truck. And the case is way upgraded at Advance on their gold line up, very nice quality.

And think about it. Who is going into Wally World on Black Friday? NOT ME!
