I just got a new car battery from Pep Boys.

Original price for my car (size group 47) was 111.99

$25 off $100 coupon located here (thru 1/15):

$20 Mail In Rebate located here (also available in store):
http://www.pepboys.com/docs/pdf/n..._FINAL.pdf

Final price will be $66.99.

This was compared to $135 at sears and $149 at the popular auto stores. If you think you may need a battery this winter, I would jump on this.

Note: the coupon does say not valid with other offers or rebates, however they took it and gave me the rebate form. The rebate says nothing about not being valid with coupons or other offers.

I'd suggest adding "YMMV" to the title, as your deal is only if you can pull one over on the store and they don't notice you're not supposed to get the rebate as well.

Still a good post/price even if you only use coupon or rebate.

Noted... although the rebate receipt prints automatically from the cash register (I got two receipts: 1 for the warranty and 1 for the MIR), so I don't think it was an oversight. Even if they don't give you the MIR form you could still print one on your own.

I say this is worth a shot, at worst you can try and get a nice CS rep at the rebate clearing company if they deny you on the grounds of this find print: "Not valid with any other offers, in-store sales, discounts or in conjunction with coupons offered by Bosch or any other party"

Thanks OP! There are rarely any good deals aside from paying regular price on car batteries since I don't have an Advanced Auto Parts nearby. As yangar said, the rebate form does state in the fine print that it's not valid with any other discounts or coupons. I hope that doesn't cause an issue.

I got my size 48 for $84 after the $25 coupon...I will send in the $20 mail in rebate to see are they going to honer it or not...worse case, just waste a forever stamp...

Did this last month before the new year. I don't think it's a YMMV, the stores don't care. Sent my rebates in for two batteries, still doesn't show up on the online system yet.

Just replaced them in both the cars today. pepboys said I'm not eligible for the MIR and it didn't print out on purchase. I'm going to print it and give it a shot but my fingers aren't crossed.

...Still cheaper than costco or walmart even without the rebate but an extra $40 would be sweet.

For future reference, I was able to double dip on the coupon and rebate. Just received two checks for two batteries.
