Go buy actual hockey pucks for $1 each.

Is DT ok with reg. hockey pucks ? If so Good amz link just in case ?

I believe DT also balances the tires for free (not sure if it's needed) I get all my tires thru them b/c great CS

Theres another thread on that here: Putting the 3 on all 4 jack stands

Im gonna just go ahead and beat the dead horse....You don't need pucks.

The lifting points sit proud of the battery. As long as you lift with a flat surface, you are totally fine (many shop lifts and home jacks have this).
i think it's more for protecting the jack points from scratches no? If you use a puck there's nothing to scratch but a jack would marr the jack point.

Many jacks have a rubber pad on the flat lifting point which should be enough to prevent that, but even without it i honestly wouldn't be very worried about scratching it up.

Because most people don’t need them. Why include something most people don’t actually need. I paid $30 at Costco, who had pucks them selves.

The pucks are cheap insurance. I bought a set in case I have a problem. In addition I got a tire repair kit & a small air compressor.
I also have some plugs other than one that uses a 14-50 outlet. You can’t plan for all unexpected events but you can do preparation for some of the more common.
