    Shipping was $8.99 for me.

    I think this is their flat rate for basic shipping if anyone else wants to check.

    Yes, the shipping one this one is $8.99. But this is a 24-pack and you get the 2nd pack free. This is still a better deal ..you just pay $4.50 + $8.99 shipping for two packs Smile
    Good deal!

    Shipping is a flat rate of $8.99.

    This really cuts into the deal value with a no-name battery brand.

      This is indeed a named battery brand. The brand name is ULTRA ...and thats's what the deal title says. You may want to visit http://www.ultraproducts.com/index.php for more details. And what does really cuts into the deal - the total price of $ 13.49 ($4.5 + $8.99) for 48 AA batteries??? Are you expecting everything for free???

      Example Name Brands:
      - Duracell
      - Energizer
      - Rayovac

      If its not one of the "major" brands then sometimes people use the phrase "no-name" as slang. Of course it has a name, anything sold has some name on it. Don't be silly.

      Although, if you do find these puppies for free that would be something. However, I do expect more of a savings with off-brand no-name batteries, and I think shipping kills this deal.

      Not really, all though they all share the same basic construction principles. However, often the cheaper off brands skimp on the quality of raw materials used, and they also cut costs in the construction of the battery. Effectively they are more cheaply made and tend not to last as long. however, often these issues only become apparent in higher end technology that tends to have a larger draw on the battery itself. If your using them in a basic remote or something similar then you most likely would not notice the difference. If one really cares here is link that discusses how alkaline batteries work.
