AAP has a $33 Edge syn oil change with a $10 MIR to make it $23 with filter. It includes a Pure one filter valued up to $11.95. Of course, the one I wanted for the vw 2.5 was priced at $19.95(!). Even the Mann on the shelf was only $15. So I go to check out. They can't get the price. They decide it is because the filter is too expensive. The system will only take filters at $11.95 or less. That worked. But now I have two pf52 equivalent filters I don't need. So then what? The price on the VW filter is excessive. A fram at wal mart, made in Germany and looking exactly like the OE Mann is $9 and change. Still, the deal was good, Id have possibly paid the delta. Apparently you can't pay the delta between $11.95 and the specific filter price? Also, apparently you can't take a credit for the filter value and apply it to another filter (eg the Mann version which cost less)? Is that true, or did the counter guy just not know what he was doing? I did get my battery. Thanks to sayjac for the code!
