@carlfredricksen: I've ordered two things from bedeals and received them. A micro SD card and booklights. Didn't have a problem.

Great price on Duracell!! I have made many purchases from the site in the past with no problems! Thanks for the post!

I've ordered from them, no problems. If I didn't already have a ton of AA's around I'd be in for a couple of these.

I ordered a microSD card with "free shipping" from them. It came postage due and didn't work. Run, do not walk from them.

I really wna pull the trigger on this one, but the site isn't https!

I'm more curious as to how old they are...

@carlfredricksen:
I have ordered from them many times.
They have some of the best deals I have seen.

bedeals.com is directly affiliated with dillyeo.com and they are both terrible websites with pretty bad reviews. I would not advise anyone of making the mistake and ordering from them like I did.

I have sucessfully order from them in the past. However, be cautious ordering batteries. I ended up with a bad lot a while back (not from this site), which had half the life and leaked all over the place. They were name brand as well. That being said, I'll probably order these. Lol!

Anyone have a coupon code for this site???

Does anyone know if this item comes with batteries???

$.36 per cell... not too bad. I usually jump when I can get Alkaline AAs for $.25 though.

The pic shows the expiration time is 200X (8?)

@sumduud: If you are going to correct somebody you might want to be sure your correction is correct.

$9.99 + $4.99 = $14.98

$14.98/54 = $0.28

@wwyu: Yeah, I'd like to know how old these batteries really are.

vote-for3vote-against

@pdbq: fair enough, I didn't account for shipping. I can at least account for my error...

vote-for3vote-against

I have ordered plenty from them, the few times there was a problem... they were there quickly to correct it and 1 time it wasn't there fault. The package was stolen in the mail and they quickly reimbursed my money and told me that if it does arrive to keep it. I have ordered these batteries before but at a better deal and the expiration on them is good til 2015 of march. thats almost 4 years +. They are good to go with!! so place your orders without fear.

Sam's club always has 48 packs of AA batteries for $9.99, and you don't have to worry about getting a batch of bad ones that have been sitting around for years or something.

vote-for4vote-against

@24601: I don't see anything on Sam's website that is anywhere close to $9.99 for a 48 pack. Here is a 36 pack at $33.44: http://www.samsclub.com/sams/shop/product.jsp?productId=113179&navAction=

Their check out process is NOT secure. If they can't get that right, the odds that they're selling cheap Chinese fakes is pretty good. I'd pass.

Also, this sure sounds fishy, right from their FAQ section:
[quote]Tracking
Customers will receive a tracking number for all orders over $20. Anything below $20, customers will receive a confirmation. Please do not confuse this as a tracking number. We do not want you to burst a blood vessel when you figure out that it doesn’t work. Don’t worry, the product is coming. We promise![/quote]

I've ordered from dillyeo.com before and never had an issue.

@24601 - I shop at SAMS frequently enough and the ones enar me do not have that kind of deal. I find better deals at home depot where I get 20 AAs for $9.99. Only time I see better is when I have a coupon and Kroger has them on sale (picked up a 16 pack for $5.99 after having a $1 off coupon, doubled with $7.99 sale price last week.)

@morganporter: I've bought this pack from Sam's in the past:

http://www.samsclub.com/sams/shop/product.jsp?productId=prod741115&navAction=

Sure, they're 'Members Mark' branded, but I couldn't tell the difference between these or the Energizer/Duracell as far as quality or longevity. I could swear they were around $10 in the store, but could be wrong. Even at $11.88 they are cheaper, even after PA sales tax...

vote-for3vote-against

@ionman: It is secure. You're confused about looking at the shopping cart not being secure. Click through to checkout and you'll see it is https.

And it's not secure, you've read all that into it?

What should one read into your mistake?

vote-for-3vote-against

How could you compare that crap at sams club to duracells, 54 batteries for this price is cheap. go to the stores and price 16 duracells.. 10.87 with tax.

vote-for7vote-against

@virtual4desires: How could I compare?? Well, by comparing them... how else? I've used many different brands, and HONESTLY, cannot tell the difference! Sure, sometimes name brand items do carry better quality with them, but it's foolish to call something 'crap' simply because it does NOT have a branded name. Is this a good deal on "DURACELL" batteries? Yes, because the name 'Duracell' (and 'Energizer') normally sell for more because all of the advertising they do. Just look at actual user reviews. All 5 star for the debranded ones, and about half that for the branded ones.

So, if you MUST have your name brand, buy these, it's a great deal! But me? I can't read the name brand on the side of the battery when it's in an electronic device and could not tell the difference... I was just pointing out the deal someone else was referring to earlier. Hey, I have no stakes in either brand - just sharing info, and a positive experience with a QUALITY debranded item at a better price.

vote-for3vote-against

more times that not... the store brands are manuafactured by the big names... they just slap on a different label and sell for cheaper as they dont' have the ad fees

Just use rechargeable unless 1.5V is necessary (and it's usually not). Here are some chosen at random:

At $2.07/battery, if you use them even 8 charges each, they're as good as this deal.
Bam!

vote-for1vote-against

Ughh, and what happens when your electric goes out?. Man i can't believe some of the comments from some people. Bottom line at .28 cents a piece, your getting a heck of a deal. The dollar store sells crap batteries for a dollar a 4pk. Your getting duracells for 1.12 a 4 pack! my local riteaid has a AD in the paper selling these duracells for 3-4.99 a 4 pack and thats not including tax, with tax its 5.47. I am in for 6 orders of these duracell 54 packs, i missed the sale they had on the AAA. Oh well maybe next time. For those of you out there with cree flashlights that only use 1 AA battery, these will be perfect and 1 battery will last a long time.

vote-for1vote-against

@scubalab: I have many different cree flash lights and i have used many types of batteries in them, the cheaper brands die out quickly. Bedeals had this deal once before but at a better price, i ordered 200 of them on the last sale. I am still on the same 1 duracell battery that i put in the cree flashlights from the last sale and there still going wereas the other batteries ive used would have died a while ago. Bottom line? this is a good deal for me, don't like the deal? don't buy it. I was just merely speaking on my experience with bedeals where others were skepticle of dealing with them. They are straight up and no needs to worry, this is based on my experience with them.

vote-for1vote-against

@virtual4desires: Fair enough! I agree that it's a good deal for Duracells. And I agree that there are some lower quality batteries out there (dollar general, etc.) that do not last long. I buy a lot of Sam's Club (Members Mark) brand items and most are as good as their name-brand counterpart. Yes, some might not be as good, but the blanket statement that ALL Sam's stuff is crap wasn't a fair statement.

Bottom line, if you want Duracells, yes I agree, this looks like a great deal. However, those that don't care if it's a name brand can find as good a quality battery at a slightly better price! I've used these with the same and sometimes better results in my Harmony remote, wireless keyboard/mouse, and many of the kids toys!

Peace!

My boss bought a similar deal for our department at work... they SAY "Duracell" on them but they also have some other chinese characters on them. But what tells me most that they are NOT Duracell is their lackluster battery life. If it looks too good to be true...

vote-for0vote-against

@scubalab: If you have camers, flash units, etc you can tell.
CVS had a bunch of battery packs on sale a while ago- and they suck. Maybe they're OK in flashlights, but not in flash units. My Lumix camera (similar to the one on woot) goes twice as long on Duracell as the next one.
The same with the rechargeables- CVS and Riteaid both have cheaper rechargeables. They won't hold a decent charge more than a week, and they run out fast. The Duracell rechargeables work and last mucho longer.
And this is LA. Every other month or so a motorist hits a pole or a worker from off the corner drops a tool into the electric lines- poof! and the electrics are out for a few hours, sometimes to a few days. You NEED the flashlight you put down a month ago to work right now.

vote-for0vote-against

@unatommer: Listen, i have bought from these ppl before and i bought the same duracells there selling now and i am currently using them for security work, these are the same ones you buy in the store. Your foolish if you think that anything you buy in the USA is USA made, everything comes from china and these are real duracell batteries. The only difference is that these batteries are in bulk rather than retail package. You want feedback from someone who has bought from bedeals before and bought these same batteries, well here it is. Don't go assuming something. This is not the first time bedeals has sold duracells before. I missed out on the AAA duracell deal and im kicking myself now. Your best bet next time is ask around if anyone has dealt with this deal before and i am sure ppl will respond. I did and i gave ya my feedback. Have a good one!.

If you try to put it in the cart it says:

"The requested quantity for "NEW DURACELL AA BATTERIES - 54 PACK!" is not available."

Oh well now I dont have to worry if these are real or not...

vote-for1vote-against

For those who were wondering- YES They are real, however, they say blatantly on each battery something to the extent of "These are for placement in new products only, not for resale". I'm guessing that they're not to the same quality as the ones that hang in a store aisle, but so far so good.

vote-for1vote-against

@cnetheri: No, it means that these are loose and are sold in bulk packaging and not retail store peg packaging but it is the same quality and the same battery. Duracell does not lower there standard just because there sold in bulk or sold in retail peg packaging. Your getting a very reasonable price for these because the retail market is taking a shelacking and there more than likely overstocked with batteries so they sell them off in bulk. I bought a package off the shelf 2 days ago and the same year thats on the retail as the bulk ones i just bought are the same dates.

vote-for1vote-against

Yes - these guys are legit. I ordered these a couple weeks ago and my batteries did come loosely in a small box without any packaging (they actually gave me 44 instead of 40 - which was a pleasant surprise!). I've used about 20 of them already because my little boy just had his 5th birthday and they all seem to be fully charged and work great.

I paid a total of $12.98 (including the s&h) for 40 (actually 44 but I dont know if it was just a mis-count or if they were just trying to fill the box). I definitely recommend buying these especially if you have children and with the holidays coming up - you cannot beat this deal!!

vote-for1vote-against

Oh and regarding the comment about them not providing any tracking with orders under $20 - my order totaled $12.98 and they did in fact provide me with a tracking number in my email confirmation - which I thought was pretty nice because I, too, had been a litle worried about that statement. But from what I've seen, dealt with, and received they do seem to be legit and do what they say they're goin to do and then some.

I ordered some batteries in November, finally got around to using them and 2 sets of 4 leaked goo into my high dollar Canon flash. Avoid this bunch. Not sure where these batteries came from, but this is horrible.
