Great price on Mobil 1

So I extracted all the oil out of my MB E350 last night and figured I'd use the Castrol Syntec 5W40 I got for the Boxster but decided not to use yet. The Benz was at it's mileage limit and I've got an interested buyer. So then I notice the Castrol is 229.3 and not 229.5, it seems only the Castrol 5W30 is 229.5. So I drive the Box to work and figure I'll get oil tonight no matter what it costs...well just my luck...Mobil 1 is 29.95 plus filter for 5 quarts. So I get 10qrts and since they don't have a filter in the brand specified by the sale, the sales guy says go pick out one filter that will work (they carry a Mann in Purolator). I didn't need the filter, after so many of these deals I've stocked up on filters but I figured heck they won't give me the sale unless I get one. So long story short I walk out with the 10qrts and filter for $55 out the door tax included. Gotta love the guys at Advance Auto Parts, they always take care of me...it keeps me going back. I find Discounttire takes the same approach...treat customers well, be flexible and they'll come back as a repeat.
