Whenever I teach a Super-Couponing 2 class, inevitably someone will ask how to save money on oil changes. Easy… do it yourself! This deal comes courtesy of my wonderful father, who taught me to change the oil at a young age and is always on the hunt for great deals on synthetic, which we both use in our vehicles and can be pricey in the absence of a deal.
Dad spotted a $50 mail-in rebate for a case (12 quarts) of Valvoline VR1 Racing Synthetic Motor Oil posted on Valvoline’s website. However, Dad has been scouring area stores for the racing oil and has come up empty — nobody in our Chicagoland area seems to stock it.
He found cases of Valvoline VR1 on Amazon.com for $62.97 with free shipping. After the rebate, they’ll be $12.97 – that’s about $1.08 per quart, an absolute STEAL for synthetic.
Thanks Dad! And for all of the other do-it-yourself oil changers out there… enjoy!
The Valvoline must be purchased by May 31 and mailed by June 30th.
