Is there a frugal way or place to get watch batteries changed? Besides doing it myself?

      I have a couple gorgeous watches that need new batteries, but jewelers quotes are ridiculous (when did that become a thing?!). TIA!

        Batteries Plus. You can also pay a little more and they will change your watch battery for life of the watch. My Seiko is 20+ years, alternate with Apple Watch.

        Same with key fobs. Definitely frugal move. They run specials on all kinds of bulbs and batteries. Good deal if you have folks with a hearing aid.

          Batteries Plus for anything battery or bulb related. You can pay extra and purchase batteries for life of watch. Also helpful for car key fobs and cell phone batteries.

            I just googled batteriesplus. It said 25$ for unlimited watch battery replacement. If so, phenomenal price.

              Go to Batteries plus store. They replace batteries for the cost of the battery.

                We have a local battery place and cell phone repair shop thar change watch batteries.

                Also, some watch batteries are super pricey and difficult to replace. I used to work in a jewelry department and while some watch batteries cost only a couple bucks, some cost $40+ and took over an hour to replace, so expensive quotes have always been a thing, you may not find much cheaper elsewhere.

                  Walmart sells watch batteries but most won’t install them unless you bought the watch from a Walmart.

                    We have the Lifetime Battery from Kay’s Jewelers. Any time our batteries die, we go in and they put in a new one free of charge. They know us now and don’t even ask for the paperwork.

                      If you have Batteries Plus in your area they offer a lifetime battery and will change it for you.

                        We have a local jeweler that provides new batteries in exchange for any amount donated to the charity of the month! It’s Baileys in Raleigh NC so I know it may not be feasible for you but wish a lot of jewelers would perform this service.

                        Plus, it brings in customers that probably end up making purchases so probably a win/win!:)
