I had a trip through NJ recently and I plotted out which AA I would stop by. I managed to score some of the following:
Castrol Edge 5w20 qt
QSUD 5w30 5qt jug
QSUD 0W20 quart (for a friend)
Idemitsu 0W20 4qt jug
Idemitsu 0W20 1qt

I also did a price check on the Castrol Edge 5W30 but that was discounted only about 50% (ie: ~$4-5/qt).

This semi-secret clearance sale is crazy.
in about 1/2 the stores I was in, the staff knew what was going on and in the other 1/2, I got to enjoy the clerk's eye pop out when the prices range up.

My buddy who gave me $20 said he'd appreciate if I found him some but didn't want me to go out of my way for it. I said pfftt, this is fun. I verbatim said "I like watching the cashiers eyes pop out of their sockets" LOL

Just went by AAP again this morning. They had the QSUD 0w20 on shelf, brought one up front for price check.
Still rings up as $4.16 each.

From what I understand, this is because the AAP store manager is too lazy or indifferent to do the weekly price changes that AAP corporate sends out.

Do you know how much the price goes down each week? 10%? 20%?

Spoke with a manager at a former AAP I use to go to in another town, he said clearance items can go down to 1 nickle, at which point AAP CANNOT sell the product, as the $.05 indicates a recall or defective item.

So it's possible these oils, of all sizes and types, can go down to $.10 LOL

Which is when they're supposed to pour out all the oil in their recycling tanks. I found a manager that was willing to sell oil for a nickel per quart including Magnatec. But the other stores that still had it on the shelves wouldn't do it.

When it hits a nickel they're supposed to pull it from the shelf. I even bought some Valvoline SynPower 20w50, 13 quarts of it. Then later sold it on Craigslist for $35. I think the date code on it was 2011.

Hmm yeah I wonder if that'd be more common with oil. I can understand if brake pads were recalled and couldn't be sold, but oil for $.05 being recalled? Maybe improperly labeled?

I guess I'll pause my oil quest until I hear of 5qt jugs going down to $.15 laugh

I think it was because they considered the oil outdated. A date code said 2011 and this was last year I bought it. So maybe at the 5 year mark they want it GONE. smile

Of course it's not spoiled and perfectly fine to use. I think they have a contract with the manufacturer that it needs to be clearanced at a certain time.

Funny you say such things :^)

I was just at the Advance Auto where gf used to live. Nabbed last 8quarts of QSGB 5w20 at .75 cents. One counter guy; Dennis is my neighbor.

Some young, stupid punk Jerry was ringing up the oil along with the QSGB 5w20 5quart jug and smart a** says "too bad you can't get this jug for what I got it for $1.15". I says "why the da** he** not? Dennis overheard this and comes over and re rings the jug up; comes to $1.00! So for lil' under $8.00 I now have 13 quarts of serviceable oil smile





Dennis put the 5quart jug on a different receipt btw
