Did AAA rip me off by selling me a replacement car battery on the spot?

"My car battery died. When I called AAA, the tech said the battery was completely dead. He offered to sell me one with a three-year warranty for $140. I took it because I had no other choice.

Did I get ripped off?"

“No, you actually got a pretty good deal. The cheapest car batteries are right around that price, and those usually only come with a one-year warranty.
AAA is a reputable company. In the future, you could be prepared with a spare battery in your trunk, but for this price, you might just take them up on the offer if it happens again.
