Replace battery with Credit Card Extended Warranty?

Just wondering if anyone tried using the extended warranty on their credit card to pay for battery replacement on an out of warranty cell phone. I got my phone directly from Samsung, and paid with my credit card which has 1 year extended warranty. It has been 1.5 years and the phone now keeps only 65% of its original charge, and can hardly last through a day without topping up. Samsung wants around $200 to replace the battery. If I can get the credit card to pay for it then it would be fantastic. Anyone has experience?

I don't know of anybody that has, wouldn't hurt to try - but batteries generally aren't covered by warranties in general, unless they fail spectacularly, and early.

Can you get anything in writing (from the manufacturer or an approved repair shop) that states that the battery WOULD be covered under manufacturer's warranty if it were in the original coverage period?
