Lukewarm deal alert: 6qt Mobil 1 synthetic 0w40 for $28

Amazon.com: Mobil 1 96989 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil - 1 Quart (Pack of 6): Automotive

Not the hottest deal, but a deal none the less.

I wish they had the same price on Castrol edge. I could stop going to Walmart at all.

I just did an oil change and the best I could find was ~$26 for a 5qt jug of Mobil 1 0w40 at Walmart. ~$5.20/qt

The prices vary wildly on Mobil 1 for some reason. I saw plenty for ~$10/qt and even a 55 gal barrel of it that worked out to $12/qt.

What up with the mad pricing? I guess I should keep looking for sales and buy it when a sale comes around and stock up.

Every now and then walmart has Mobil 1 for about 22 a 5 qt jug. Same with the Castrol. You just have to wait for the sale.

I pressed the link and it states the price as $49.

I found this link for the jug:http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00HG76A9A/ref=pd_aw_sim_263_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=51IrZkPE6pL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL100_SR100%2C100_&refRID=0Y9JVJWVCRPKC2DDC3WZ

Mobil1 upto 15$ rabate valid till May 31st 2016 - Slickdeals.net

Much hotter deal. $14 for 5qts after rebate. Grabbed 2 jugs, thinking of using a friend's address for another 2.

Wasn't sure if this warranted a whole new thread.

Thanks for posting the rebate info, bought @ Walmart & rebate will make this a very cheap synthetic oil change.

Ugh. I would rather buy at AutoZone than deal with the Walmarts around here. A couple bucks is not worth my sanity.

AutoZone's sale this week is 5 qts Mobil 1 AND a mobil 1 oil filter for $33.99 - $15.00 rebate brings you out to $18.99 for oil and filter. BUT of course, they don't have Mobil 1 Oil Filters for our 986.

Oreilly's $27.95 - $12 rebate = $15.95

If you check the link, you can also buy from Amazon. I did it with the slow 5 day shopping so they also gave me a $6 pantry credit
