Advance has never had a “lifetime Warranty “. It is a “Limited Lifetime Warranty”.
This means they will replace the part 1 time with a receipt. There is no “magic disappearing ink” on the receipts... it’s thermal paper, if it gets hot (ie. leaving it in your glovebox) the paper fades quickly.
Same receipts most retail stores give you. Keep a file in your house with the receipts in it, they will last forever. It’s not their job to keep your information. As for pricing, you should always do your homework before purchasing.
Not their fault you paid too much. Your complaints are invalid.
Product or Service Mentioned: Advance Auto Parts Warranty.
