Thread Details

Sears.com offers 20% off DieHard Automotive Batteries [sears.com] as part of their deal of the day.
*Must add to cart to see discounted price

You can also get another $5 off using coupon code SEARS2013 or VALPAK5

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 SEARS2012, SEARS2013, or VALPAK5 $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.

Good deal but orders going to their auto center always end up being a clusterf__. They never have anything ready and usually are completely clueless as far as what's coming in online. You might as well have not even placed the order. Half the time they cancel even when they actually do have what you ordered in stock. The last time I tried they refused to honor the price of the online order and it wasn't any screwy deal, just a standard coupon like this one. I've given up on them.

For anyone near Allentown or Reading PA, there is a DEKA battery manufacturing factory in Lyons Station, PA, that has a retail store on site that sells "seconds". That is to say, new batteries w/cosmetic defects, at nice discount. Deka is NO SMALL FISH in the battery world, in fact, they claim to be the worlds largest manufacturing facility:

Anyways, my '02 Tacoma battery died today, and I went there to get a cheapie. I spent $70 for a 750CCA exact fit, which is probably $50 off the going rate. Truth be told, they only give you a 30 day warranty though (but if your new battery goes bad, its usually pretty soon after buying it). I've bought probably 6 batteries there, over the years, and never had an issue with my purchases. They have car, truck, lawn mower batteries, & probably cycle & other types there as well. It's always best to call them first before going out there, & they'll tell you if they have what you need, in stock.

Oh, you gotta take your bad one there for exchange, too.

Die Hards are good batteries, and I'm not tryin' to hijack anyone's thread, but just putting out some money savin' info!
