It’s time to stock up on batteries and avoid making an expensive Christmas-morning jaunt to the closest drug store or gas station. Here are a couple of the better battery deals available right now.
OfficeMax: 1-cent Batteries
OfficeMax has a nice deal on name-brand batteries. It requires more cash out-of-pocket than the other deals, but the final price paid for a package of batteries is only 1 cent, after you take MaxPerks Bonus Rewards into account. Shipping starts at $7.95, but orders over $50 receive free shipping.
A 10-pack of Duracell AA or AAA batteries is $8.49. Get $8.48 back in MaxPerks Bonus Rewards. A 20-pack of Duracell AA or AAA batteries is $14.29. Get $14.28 back in Max Perks Bonus Rewards.
They have all sorts of other free-after-MaxPerks Rewards deals so you could easily get your order to $50+.
Toys R Us: 17-cent Batteries
Toys R Us has a buy one, get one free deal on all of their Toys R Us brand batteries. Shipping starts around $7, but orders of $49 or more qualify for free shipping.
Lowes: 13-cent Batteries
There are better in-store deals on batteries at Home Depot and Menards, but this deal would save you time and energy waiting outside and in line at a brick-and-mortar store.
