Does anybody how much would that cost? My battery has over 1000 cycles and is totally degraded so i thought about asking for a replacement!

In Bulgaria, an Apple Premium Reseller quoted me about $330 and in Greece the local Premium Reseller shop quoted $641 (!!)

How much does it cost in US? Why should i pay that much? Its not me asking to replace a simple battery and having them to change the whole top case assembly!

*Pricing and terms vary for service through an Apple Authorized Service Provider

So does that mean that they can charge whatever they want to?

To a point, but call your local authorized apple and ask for a quote. I'm pretty sure its going to be 199. Btw, I'm in the same boat as you, I own a 2012 rMBP.
