Wheel balance/alignment is not covered under warranty. It's considered a wear item. Now if you just picked it up, the dealer may do it as a courtesy but they're not obligated to do so.

+1 for battery tender. Mine is sipping off of one any time the car is in the garage and I'm still on my original battery, just over 7 years. It's definitely because of the battery tender.
