ALso I'm not a fan of AGM They are very pricy.

Besides being pricey what's wrong with AGM batteries.

Well, I got 6 volt Duracell GC2 at Batteries Plus for $75 each (+ core) on sale. That seems pretty reasonable time me.

Retuned same and got my $900.00 back and no apologies what so ever from regional manager. Good buy forever more battries Plus.
Okay, it sounds like they made an initial mistake. The person posting the tread physically brought in 4 each, 6 volt batteries. Anyone selling batteries SHOULD have known better than to sell you 12 volt batteries when they physically had the cores in front of you . . . unless they told you at some point that you would have to wire them differently since they were selling you 12 volt batteries.

When the mistake was discovered, they gave you your money back?!? It looks like TWO mistakes were made here. One by the person selling you the batteries, and one by the person who didn't check the batteries for suitability prior to installing them. But the OP is ONLY pointing out the SELLER's mistake (if they did make one) and not the mistake of the person who didn't check suitability of the items they got from the store and INSTALLED THEM. . . . Once they seller was appraised of the problem, HE REFUNDED THE BUYER'S MONEY!

Forgive me, but except for the frustration involved, I'm having trouble understanding why, since there were mistakes made by TWO parties, it ALL appears to be COMPLETELY Batteries + fault!?!

Wait a minute. You went in with four 6 volt batteries and walked out with four 12 volt batteries. You could not tell the difference? I kinda wonder what the conversation was like with the sales person. We only get one view here.
