I've returned clothes with no receipt. Since you have to have a membership card to shop there, they automatically have record of all your purchases.

I've heard this, but it doesn't seem to be true. Almost always have them fail on a cold morning during winter, except for a strange one where I parked the car, went into a store, and when I came back outside, had no electrical power whatsoever. Wouldn't even jump. New battery fixed it right up.

It is true, plenty of data and studies show otherwise regardless of your anecdotal personal experience. More batteries are replaced in July than in January.

A worn battery may not work well when it's cold, but that's temporary. Cold weather doesn't cause permanent battery capacity loss. The heat does. Of course there are a lot of factors that go into battery life.
