You don't......You only get store credit for the full price you paid; towards a future purchase. So many times I feel forced to buy something with the credit or lose it before it expires. It is a rolling trap game. I only suggest if you already go to these places twice a quarter.
Hoping to save some from my experience. I now look for cheap batteries....and....done.
OD, OM, and Staples all have batts with 100% back in rewards very, very, very often. With OD and Staples, you have to pay with cash and get rewards each time. Considering rewards at either of these places is as good as cash to me, what with all the great deals that come up regularly, it's a no-brainer. You can always use your rewards on FAR software to get your money back = FREE.
With OM, you buy ONCE with cash, get rewards, pay next time with rewards, get 100% back in rewards, pay with rewards again, repeat, repeat, repeat. Again, this = FREE. In the end, I've probably received 1,000+ batteries from OM from my initial $40. Pretty much makes this or any other battery "deal" seem like highway robbery!
I don't know what happened to this company over the years but they went from the best batteries on the market to the worst. If you eat through batteries quickly then this might be an ok deal but if you leave Duracell batteries in a product for a slightly extended time period then you run a good chance of these leaking and destroying the products innards. Evidently, too much cost cutting at the expense of quality has become the fate of this company either that or TPTB told them to make terrible batteries so that people would have to replace their products along with the batteries thus increasing economic activity. Whatever the case, I prefer the quality and rechargeability of eneloops to protect my devices from battery acid demise as the extra cost is worth it for any device you care about or costs more than a few dollars.
