Noticed a few jugs missing the fuel rebate stickers and one jug that was opened. Lately I've been checking oil filters as well as... frown

Spend a couple hours watching Walmart shoppers. Then spend a couple hours watching Macys shoppers.

Yup, but it's clear what their intent was. Next time they'll know what to do...

People always seem to disappoint, but frankly, Pennzoil should be sophisticated enought to understand this. I wouldn't worry about WalMart as much as Pennzoil. Buy Mobil products instead: they have a foil seal under the cap. On the other hand, I've never seen Ultra in a WalMart. Quite a conundrum for you.

This is nothing new. People have been opening the jugs and stealing the codes for quite a while now, and not just at Walmart.

I thought the FRN required receipts to redeem codes now. The real shocking thing is that your Walmart carries Ultra *and* actually has a lot of it in stock!

I think there was a similar post a while back on the same topic, that time it was at an Autozone all the bottles were open, supposedly looking for codes.

But with all this natural gas availability, it seems they found a way to put in in an oil bootle, and get everyone on the 0w20 ban wagon. SHEEP!

They did understand. They changed the rules. No more codes on the caps.

Still surprised availability of Ultra is so...random.

What's to be paranoid about? A quick flick of the cap will tell you if it's opened or not. And if it has been opened, repeat until you find one not opened. Simple.
