Battery Warranties


#1

If you want to collect on a battery warranty at one of these chain places, do you need the sales receipt, or do they just go by information recorded on the battery case?


#2

First.

How old is the battery?

Tester


#3

Did you give them your info like phone number ? Auto Zone’s nationwide warranty has you in the database . . . my daughter warrantied a Washington DC purchase here in NM with just her phone number on record.
So many of the chains are the same way.
What info did you give at purchase ? Go to the same chain and ask. ( different companies / different policies )


#4

Most of the time they have date stickers on the battery to provide for issues such as yours, be aware many times it is a depreciated value based on battery age.


#5

Exactly Which Place?
CSA


#6

Yes, be ready for the pro-rata warranty. . . .ie; dollars paid per time of usage.
Example our Motorcraft 100 month warranty is ;
3 years free replacement then pro-rate through the remaining 64 months.


#7

Even though all batteries have a date of manufacture code pressed into the case everyone requires some confirmation that the person seeking the warranty replacement or refund is in fact the original purchaser.


#8

Walmart goes off the sticker if you don’t have the receipt. You lose whatever difference there is between the sticker date and the receipt.


#9

I try and buy them from Costco, they have you in their computer and do not need a receipt for return. They also don’t test is, so technically you can return it within the full warranty period, get a new one for the inflation adjusted new price.
