(copy & paste from earlier thread when these were 20% off)

Sears is having a 30% off all DieHard batteries as part of their Deal of the Day.

This is a great deal for their regular DieHard Gold line, which comes with a fairly standard 3 year warranty, with 100-month pro-rated replacement for under $100 for most sizes.

But it's a REALLY good deal for their top-of-the line DieHard Platinum series batteries, which are in fact rebadged, grey-container AGM Odyssey batteries made in the USA by EnerSys. The Odyssey batteries go for $300-400 or so for the exact same battery with the exact same internals. AGM means absorbed glass mat, which basically means the battery is a "dry cell" and won't leak acid, even if you break open the battery with a sledge hammer, or shoot it with an elephant gun. [youtube.com] You also will never have to clean the battery terminals, as AGM batteries don't corrode them. The Platinum line comes with an unheard of 4-year full replacement warranty, with 100-month prorated coverage.

If you want AGM but don't want to pay the steep price of the Platinum, they do make a DieHard Advanced Gold Battery in some limited sizes, for around $100-150, which is between the regular lead-acid Gold and AGM Platinum in price. Availability of this Advanced Gold seems rather limited, probably only in larger stores or auto centers.

You can usually buy online if you know the Group size you need, and knock another $5 off using the SEARS2012 $5 off $50 code (plus save the hassle of debating with the salesperson over what vehicle it's for), or buy in-store if you have a bigger discount coupon.

Anyone know if Sears price guarantees for Daily Deals? I checked their policy and everything seems fine but you know how price matching can be in person...

Yep, they should - just use the price protection form [sears.com] (or call).

Geez, this is about the lowest price the Platinums have ever been. I got mine for ~$160ish back when they were regularly $199, stacking a 10% discount, friends and family discount, and the $5 coupon, and still felt I got a deal. At $150 and tax with the regular (jacked up) $219 price, this is even better.

Sears does price match on sales and daily deals if you bought the item within the past 30 days. Just be sure to price match in the auto center and they should refund you the difference no problem. Even easier if you paid with a Sears credit card.

I used to have an Optima when they were made in Colorado. Then I found out they moved the company to Mexico, and did so AFTER they tricked their workers into training their replacements prior to the (secret) move. They also reduced their warranty period.

I love my DieHard Platinum. It's definitely stronger than the Optima when it comes to starting, and has a lot more reserve.

Definitely call and don't wait. Once the deal is over, there will be no evidence of it. I called Customer Service and spoke to a supervisor about a price drop until 5AM CDT at 8AM CDT. Nobody could find it.

I own a modified MKIV turbo Supra. When they came on the market, Yellow Top (Deep Discharge) Optima AGM batteries seemed well regarded and I was seriously considering one. One day I was in the shop where I'd had all my work done (generally regarded as the best Supra shop in the world, no exaggeration) and saw 3 Optima yellow tops sitting on his bench and asked him what he thought about them. He looked at me and said, "all three are going back for replacement, they're over priced crap".

I know of at least four friends who bought them and they all eventually felt the same way. If you live in a moderate climate, drive your car every day and never let it go dead, you might like an AGM but there is no way I'd ever pay their premium price.

Frankly I'd take a non-maintenance free conventional premium lead acid battery over an AGM even if the AGM were cheaper. Unless you're going off road or racing where a sealed battery or saving a little weight is important, AGM batteries aren't worth the disadvantages.
