Battery Warranty @ Sam's Club

I bought a yellowtop Optima battery from Sam's Club back in February 2006. It's finally dead now (completely dead), and I cannot find the receipt. Does anybody know the warranty policy or if they'll even pro-rate it?

of course gotta boom responsibly

Re: Battery Warranty @ Sam's Club

Wal-Mart & Sams Club usually put a copy in a stick on pouch on the side of the battery, and yes they will pro-rate it.

I'm proud to have had the privilidge to meet some of the greatest CT'zens in the world. At mini-meets, meet n greets, car shows and TacOberFest. It all started right here..

It also should have the month and year scraped off on a warranty sticker. I lost my receipt and they gave me an exchange.

Re: Battery Warranty @ Sam's Club

It turns out that all Optima Yellowtop batteries have 1 year warranty + 1 year pro-rate at any store whether it be Sam's Club or O'Reilly's. These are deep cycle use batteries, so they have a shorter warranty period then regular car batteries. I basically got $10 bucks for giving them my old battery because it was out of warranty.
