Any car battery deals?

Looking for a Group 75 battery for my car and am looking for the best price I can get. I'm in the Montreal area. Anyone have experience with the Everstart Maxx batteries from Walmart?

I'm in the same situation as you. I don't have a costco membership, but I hear their warranty is the best. Best to ask anyone you know if they can buy the battery using their membership card on your behalf.

I found that CAA offered the best deal/install in a parking lot :)

Google search: kirkland car battery

The second and third search result will give you all the information you could possibly want about Costco car batteries.
AFAIK, Costco is now sourcing batteries from Interstate battery, their old supplier was Johnson controls (labeled as Kirkland).

Some (but not all) of the Everstart batteries are very good.

Thanks but I already looked at those sites and know about the move to Interstate battery. A site exists for US Costco members to check battery prices but nothing for Canada.

Gave you the SKU # and details about the battery you want.
So what is keeping you from picking up the phone and asking your local Costco what the price is for that item# ?

My understanding is you can go and buy a gift card and they will allow you in if you have a gift card to buy stuff. Tell them you want to go and buy a gift card. That is one way to get around the gate keepers at the door.


EDIT:

I've not done this myself but a friend of mine who has been here (RFD) a long time was the one that told me of that work around.
