Sub: Advance Auto Parts warranties
FYI for those that might not know--
Took my Lifetime Warranted brake pads off my toad back to Advance Auto Parts to get replacement and was informed that since I could not find my receipt that I would have to (remember) go back to the AA store that I purchased them from because there stores do not share purchase records.
Wow-what an excuse in this day and time of information overabundance.
FYI- don't know about all the other parts suppliers, but all Autozone sales (according to the sales clerk) are recorded by your phone number and this info is available to all stores in all 48 states and therefore you don't have to provide receipt for warranties.
Won't be going back to Advance at least until their system is improved.
