Kirkland Battery warranty - how to recover the "battery core" fee?
I have to make a warranty claim after about 5 years. I bought the battery within 56 to 65 months and I expect 30 percent refund.
My understanding is that CS desk will process the warranty claim, take back the battery and issue a credit notice for the price of the battery but not for the core fee. I go and buy a new battery immediatly, the cashier will charge the price of the battery and "battery core" fee.
Since I do not have the battery anymore as It was taken by the CS desk clerk I cannot get the fee refunded.
I did some reading on the internet and the consensus seems to be that Costco runs a scam here. Was anyone able to recover the fee with a warranty claim?
