Use a Lot of Batteries?

jrb451July 20, 2013

I've got a money saving tip for those of you that use a lot of batteries of many sizes. Wal-Mart on-line sells a Ray O Vac battery combo pack - 8AAA, 8AA, 4C, 4D & 2 9 volt 26 batteries in all - for $7.00. Do the math, that's 27 cents per battery. Look around and see if you can come up with anything close to this price.

Buy $45.00 worth of stuff and Wal-Mart will ship free to your home. Surely there's a couple of other have to have items that you can include to reach the $45 threshold?

That's great, if you use all those sizes. Good find for you!

The Cs and Ds would not get much use in our house...

Thanks for the info and Ray O Vac are very good batteries, but buying $38 worth of stuff makes it expensive. There is an expiration date to think about. Some things won't work even if the expiration date is good.

The expiration date on these batteries is Dec 2018. And, the "$38 worth of stuff" was made up of every day items that I would usually buy at Wal-Mart anyway so it didn't add to the battery cost at all.

Daylight savings time change - change those smoke detector batteries?

That's a great deal. And honestly I can spend $38 at Walmart in one aisle, haha.
