These batteries expire June, 2016. Not sure about the quality, either. I'll pass on this one.

You will when you try to remove an alkaleak from a device that is full of caustic vomit from the battery's insides.

These are carbon zinc batteries, not alkaline.

Absolutely. I've had batteries past their expiration date that have leaked inside the package before they were used (thank God). They can ruin a device if they leak while being used.

GearXS [gearxs.com] has 24-packs of AA and AAA batteries on sale for $2.99. Use coupon code: GXS-1. The coupon applies for multiple quantities, so you can order more than one of each type and still get $3 per pack.

Price comes out to $0.125 per battery, almost have the price of the last Amazon Basics FP deal.

I like this line:

"Due to a printing mistake, Alkaline is not printed on the packaging".

Packaging says Super Heavy Duty. Even if they really aren't Alkaline price is fine.

Oh crap, I just ordered the AAA and the AA's. I had them sent to a friend before reading the reviews. Are these alkaline or not? I hate to send almost expired batteries to someone. I'm on hold, trying to cancel my order. I used PayPal so all I have is an order number. Although I purchased things from GearXS many times, I've never registered. How fvcked am I? Still on hold, 17 minutes and waiting.

They probably have one CSR and they are off until Monday due to holidays.
