Cheap(er) Batteries - resource

I was on another forum and a guy mentioned that you can buy "blemished" batteries from some battery distributors, namely Interstate. Sure enough, did a Google search and it gave me a wharehouse. These are different than a distributor like Sears or Autozone. This is the manufacturers distribution hub. I called them, and sure enough, I could get an AGM battery from them for half price. It wasn't exactly the kind I was looking for, so I called a Deka distributor up near our Airpark. They didn't have any blemished batteries in stock, but said I can call from time to time.

It seems like a good option to get a pallet scraped battery that's going to get hidden anyway at half the price!

i've heard of that too. the ones i've seen have the brand removed or altered. some of them are returns where the battery checks out ok. i suppose some might be old stock. thanks for the reminder!
