Stopped by my Walmart today to pick up a 820S and price has gone from 3.69 to 5.69. Anyone else run into this? I even checked with store clerk to make sure it was right and it was. Two buck increase.

Youch! Wonder if the price went up at Advance? I had to buy them from Advance once or twice because local Walmarts stopped carrying Motorcraft filters.

For what you get in terms of materials, $3-$4 for a spin on filter was cheap. The extended drains on recent Fords has probably reduced their volume so price goes up to compensate. Used filter waste disposal is a problem. Higher prices may reduce usage.

They still do price matching don't they? Just mention the Advance price.

Was just at my local Wally's last night...still $3.97 for most of them, but I did notice they've started carrying the FL500S and it was priced at $5.97. Maybe that's what the OP saw...

IIRC, my local WM had a few filters that were a bit over $3.97, but I don't remember the 820s being one of them. Dang. shrug Ill have to recheck.

At 3 bucks and change an FL-1A is nearly a steal. At 6 bucks not even necessarily the best choice. frown Motorcrafts have been extremely popular here on BITOG, but if they all go up that high I suspect their use will decline significantly by your typical DIY'er.

I have 10 on the shelf now. Some were $2.58, some were $2.26 depending on the discount code from advance. I wont be needing any for a year and a half or so. If the price goes up to high I might have to switch to a Fram TG or maybe a wix. The Wix can be had for about $5 shipped from fleet filter.

the 820-s and the 910s seem to be in high demand at my local walmart. i went there about a week and half ago and they were all gone, when got some in i bought one of each and i was there earlier tonite and all the 820s were gone except i found one pushed back behind the 500s so i bought it in case the price goes up.
