Champion AGM Batteries - 25% off + $40 MIR at PepBoys (4yr warranty)

+24 Deal Score
9,510 Views
I'm in the market for a new AGM battery and noticed most of the parts stores sell roughly the same Johnson Controls re-branded AGM battery. Advance Auto was in the lead because of the readily available online coupons. Their battery has a 3yr free replacement, which is pretty good. I then noticed Pep Boys has a Champion branded AGM that also appears to be made by JC. Their warranty is 4 years free replacement though. Pep Boys is currently running 25% off online + an additional $40 MIR for the Champion AGMs. That brings my total to $190 - 25% = $142.5 - $40MIR = $102.50 before tax. Installation is also free if you want to go that route.

That seems to be the best deal going right now for an AGM and also one of the better warranties to boot.

If you're shopping for a battery after entering your vehicle information and clicking on 'Batteries', you may not be getting the full results. Make a note of the Group Number (like a shoe size for batteries) and do a Google Search similar to this (Group 35 Battery PepBoys). Without doing this, I was only given two results on their battery finder (both Optima batteries) and no other choices.

After doing so, I was presented with two additional battery choices - Bosch Lead Acid ($20 rebate) and Champion AGM ($40 rebate) - to fit my vehicle. Dont forget to check CB options - I got another 3% by doing so.

Good luck.

If you order online I don't think you can get the mail in rebate as it says on the fine print cannot combine with any other offer/promotion. I could be wrong though.

The 25% off and MIR are both listed on the product page and my invoice shows the total followed by "before mail in rebate." I'm pretty confident they can be combined.

If for some odd reason the MIR doesn't get fulfilled, the price is still roughly the same as Advance Auto Parts (if not a few bucks cheaper depending on group size), but with an additional year on the warranty.

Naturally, 1 week after I purchase a Costco Interstate battery because my OEM battery died....

This Champion would be 20.00 more but AGM vs non-AGM.

Oh well, maybe next time.

Doesn't Costco have a liberal return policy? 1 week is nothing compared to the stories I hear about years later....
