Go to their website and put in your zip code.
http://www.interstatebatteries.com

Got all 4 of mine for $370.

I'm going with Excide marine batteries so I'll let you know how they hold up. I had Interstate in all my other boats and they worked great.

That's some sound reasoning right there!

Advanced Auto has 25% off Optima's right now.

Order one at a time since they give you 25% off one battery.

D34M = $210 - 25% = $158 with free shipping

I need 4 of them.

If I order all 4, I get $52 off.
If I order 1, 4 times, I get $52 off each one for a total of $208 off.

Looks like dinner is on Advanced Auto tonight for me!

Interstates, die hards, and all the lead acids are pretty much made by one company as you indicated earlier there are only a few- Johnson controls

You'll find the diff between most standard lead acid brands is a sticker.
