After having a whole parking lot full of people try to jump my car (at least I am certain it is 100% dead now), 50 minutes later I am at Auto Zone with my new battery. I went straight there, didn't want to run the risk of having to get my car jumped 3 times in one day. Being the over-the-top thrifter (new word, but it works) that I am, I decided to call around before going though with the transaction. Checkers. Pep Boys. Ray's Campus. All the same price, give or take 2 bucks, but Auto Zone's warranty was the best. Plus I was already there.
And just when I thought I had found a great deal, they told me they were out of the particular battery they had quoted me on, so they gave me the next best one for the same price. Thats right ladies and gentlemen-- a three year warranty for the price of two!
Call me crazy but that just about made my day.
