Deal Details

Sears.com offers 25% off DieHard Automotive Batteries [sears.com].

You can also get another $5 off using coupon code SEARS2013.

Plus, SYWR members get $10 back in points with purchase of any DieHard automotive battery
or get $20 back in points with DieHard Advance AGM auto batteries (Offer ends Nov 2, 2013)

In-store pickup is free. Note you must pickup at the Auto Department or Automotive Center, not the regular Merchandise Pick-up area.

Installation is usually extra if you don't have the time or the tools to do it yourself.




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. 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 (use the battery selector link below), and knock another $5 off using the SEARS2013 $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.

Group 35

The DieHard Platinum is also available in other Group sizes like Group 34 and Group 35, but for whatever reason, these no longer show on the Sears website. You might try buying any size and just ask the salesperson to edit the sale at the register, there doesn't seem to be any way to complain to Sears.

I really need a new battery for my Acura but paying $170 for the platinum series still seems a little much

Thank you very much OP! I set up a deal alert on Diehard batteries and this was just the deal I was waiting for on the Platinum! I thought I remember seeing them as 5 year warranty before but I guess it's 4. Still worth the premium to me.
