Got batteries?

We have almost completely converted over to rechargeable batteries, ’round here, but there are still times when alkaline will do. Plus, when the kids were smaller, I often opted for disposable batteries in their objects rather than to risk my precious (read: more expensive!) lithiums being lost in the toy box.

If you use alkalines, here’s a fantastic deal: Amazon currently has a 20-pack of Duracell AA batteries for just $9.34 shipped when you buy via Subscribe & Save. But scroll down the product page a little before you buy—there’s a coupon for an additional $1.50 off! Just click the “Clip this coupon” button to add it to your cart, then buy via S&S. End result: 20 AA batteries for $7.84 shipped, or just under $.40/battery.


  1. don’t see the additional coupon; am I missing something?

  2. Wow. Thanks Mir!

    Anna, it looks like the clip part is just under the product description.

  3. the coupon seems to be gone now

  4. I couldn’t get the coupon to work. Then I reloaded the page and the coupon was gone. Amazon exists to keep us on our toes.

  5. Try revisiting Mir’s link again and clip the coupon FIRST. I saw it disappear too, but viewing the page again from Mir’s link worked like a charm. The 28 count, plus coupon, plus S&S discount, is a great deal — better than we can get at BJs, and free shipping via Prime (again thanks to Mir and Amazon Mom).

  6. I just did and it and it worked! Thanks Mir!

  7. I’ve never been able to use the clip coupon function. EVER. It’d be nice, but even without the coupon I think they are a great deal.
