I've called AAA to get a jump on various cars (parked in my garage) and then drove them to Sears for a Diehard replacement.
Assuming I was 86 years of age, needing a new battery, and needed my car, I would have no problem with paying the difference in price from a battery in which I would have had to get by driving to a supplier, waiting till they changed it, and paying gas to get theire.
Of course, that's only my opinion
