A “Core Charge” is similar to a bottle deposit. In many states, to promote recycling, you are charged a deposit when you purchase a bottle of soda and you receive your deposit back when you return the empty bottle. Many automotive parts have a core charge, or core price, that works the same way as a bottle deposit.
- The part you are purchasing contains a component that is rebuildable
- The core charge deposit is charged at the time of purchase
- When the rebuildable component from your old part is returned to us, the core charge is refunded to you
Bring the part to any Advance Auto Parts store along with your receipt or packing slip
