Hello everyone,

First off, if I have this question in the wrong place, please advise where it should be moved and I'll do so. OK, my question. 2006 Acura TSX that in Dec. 2016, I put an Autocraft Gold 51R battery in. 3 year replacement warranty. Friday, go to get tires put on. They go outside to wheel car in. Car won't start. Nothing. Dead. They jump it to get it into the bay. Well, need a battery to get home so I buy one there. 110 bucks. Yesterday, I took the battery back to AA. They say the battery is dead, but they need a receipt as they can't find me in the system. I bought the battery at the same location. I locate receipt and they give me a new 159 dollar battery, which I now don't need. Will AA do like a merchandise credit, or am I Craigslisting this baby? Thanks everyone!

Why don't you need the battery anymore?

It's a Craigslist battery now.

I bought a new one at the shop because the one in the car was completely dead. It's on Craigslist:)

Not sure....ask AA if they will give you $159 instead....if not see if the tire shop will take there battery back.

Yeah, definitely sell one of the batteries and recoup some cash for yourself.

Yeah I'd work with the tire shop, explain the situation. You did just drop a bunch of money there and they should be somewhat understanding.

I think that the cost of their 40% coupons is baked into the price of every item they sell.

It sounds like you are unfortunately stuck with the 2 batteries.

Advance does not keep warranty info for long, (they told me 3 years) and it seems to only be at the store that you bought at. Their receipts also always seem to fade, so I always make a photocopy for purchases like this.

Autozone seems to be the gold standard for warranty stuff as they keep the info in a nation wide database that is accessible from any store.

And you don't even need to keep the receipt. All you need is to give them the phone number you gave them when you bought it smile

your post was correct when it said '3 year replacement'. you used the battery for 2 years. The store manager at AAP might be able to help you, but to get a full refund will be difficult.
