Most people get the battery and then bring back the old battery after the swap.
The odds that the counter monkeys would notice that you brought back a different
battery type, multiplied by the odds that they would care if they noticed, are about the same
as my odds of having a night of unrestrained pleasure with Kate Upton.
longhorndave,

thanks.. but if i was getting the installation done at the time of picking up the battery, then would they honor the existing battery in my van for the core charge?

.

Yes, the core charge is a state fee that is refunded when you bring back the old battery.
Old batteries are really bad for the environment, so the states started the fee so that you
don't throw your old battery in a trash bin.

If Advance does the swap, they probably won't even charge you a core fee.
The guys at Advance will do the swap, but only if they have a guy available.
Call them up before you head down, and see how busy they are.

I bought a Size 78 (770 CCA) for my '07 TrailBlazer SS, and bought some cheapie stuff out of their "stocking stuffer" section to bring my base total over $125 to qualify for $50 off using code DOTW52.

Also, use code NYEAR for 20% off and a coupon for $50 off your next purchase of $100. It does not appear that the coupons stack though, as using NYEAR alone only knocks off about $25.55 off my order, and using them both still only lists savings as $50. But I'll get a coupon for $50 off $100 this way. Will update the Wiki to show this code as well.

Not everyone drives a dinky 4 cylinder civic bro. You must be so well versed in automotive care. Would you be so generous as to drop some more knowledge on me, oh great one?
Taken directly from Motor week:

Now, how do you go about wisely shopping for a replacement battery?

Well, for years I’ve been telling you that the one criteria – cold, cranking amps. Well, that’s still very important, because cold, cranking amps tells you the ability of the battery to do work right now. And the higher the cold cranking amp rating of the battery, the better it is for your car. But, don’t get that confused with cranking amps – CA. See, cold, cranking amps – CCA, cranking amps – CA. The cranking amps are rated at 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Cold, cranking amps are rated at 0, and the higher the temperature when they’re doing the rating, the higher the numbers. So, that CA rating may look impressive, but it really isn’t. Rely on cold cranking amps.

The CostCo that I got a couple of years ago was made by Interstate batteries
which is a high quality company. I also like the warranty that CostCo gives and have not had any trouble with the batteries that I have purchased from them, still going strong.

From what I know, Interstate batteries are manufactured by Johnson Control; same as AutoCraft Gold. I'm sure there are quality differences within the manufacturer, but for ~$115 MSRP, the battery should be just as reliable; both likely testing the same grade

What a coincidence, my wife's car needs a new battery.I used the DOTW52 discount code. I got the Autocraft Gold and added a Gojo Orange Hand Cleaner as filler to get to a total of $125.48.

$138.12 (Total + Taxes) - $50 (DOTW52) - $5 (Core) - $25 (Rebate) = $58.12

Not bad for a 3 year free replacement warranty.
