Is it too late for this one to fall under the battery replacement program that Apple were doing?

Edit:- Still on the Apple site:

Changed the battery in a 5 on Saturday. £5 battery from eBay and 15mins max to change. Needed a hairdryer to loosen the sticky tape which holds the battery down. Used a battery app to check new one was good. Not sure how long it will last but phone is now sold. The main thing to be aware of is to be very carful when releasing the screen from the case. YouTube and iFixit will give instructions but no need to completely remove screen if you are careful.
