Not quite sure where to post this...

But I am curious what is everyone expecting this year?

Would be cool if a few people can chime in with some of their previous experience/deals they've gotten during the fabled December AZ clearances.

I certainly appreciate the QSUD clearance heads up that I got on here! laugh

Best previous was all the M1EP and AFE I could carry for $2/qt. I may have accidentally returned some to Wally World for $9/qt...oops. wink

If you can get in on the present AA $2.15/qt clearance, a bird in the hand, two in the bush...

Just remember one thing they aren't selling it for less than their cost then think about what all of them are charging us!

Haha! Good point... The AAP/AZ markup must be past 100%

Edit: If QSUD is $34 retail, and they are selling it for $8.45, then the mark up is at least 75%... if my calculations are correct.

I'm still working on using up my Auto Zone clearance oil from 2 years ago, but I'll stock up if it's a good enough sale again.

I highly highly doubt that there is anywhere near that amount of mark up in oil that AAP or AZ sells. When they are selling stuff at $2 a at they are actually taking a big loss on what they sell. I'm not saying that if one were to buy oil from this places not on sale there is a decent amount of mark-up. At nearly $10 a qt not on sale there definitely is some there. At Wally World single qt prices are definitely cheaper by $1.50 to $3 a quart. The 5 qt containers are usually $10-13 cheaper at Wally World vs AAP or AZ not sale. We don't know what AAP or AZ truly pay wholesale for their oil. It can be stated rather clearly that it certainly is a good bit higher than WW. Which is goofy because it's not like there are not a ton of AAPs or AZs around. They should have the purchasing power to get better deals than they do. Interesting footnote... At AZ right now the Mobil 1 annual protection and Mobil 1 oil filter is $44.95. Which strangely enough is actually cheaper than WW right now.

I'm not sure why many people believe this. It's a clearance so they price it at whatever they need to in order to get rid of it and that includes taking a loss on it. Ever hear of a loss leader? That's when they price things below cost so they can get you in the store and have you buy other stuff. Hopefully the other stuff makes up for the loss they take. Our state actually has a commission that prevents large liquor stores from selling below their cost. They don't do that to regular retail though.

Technically everything you buy at Sears is below cost because they've been losing money for years.

Best deal I got was Mobil 1 ATF for $2/quart. This is normally $10+ a quart. Too bad I got rid of the car so I still have some left. Going to trade it with a friend once he needs a flush.

I'm really hoping that DEX 1 2.0 means we'll see a solid clearance on some pennzoil products so I can stack that on top of the $2 a quart MIR from pennzoil for this year.

If $8.45 is their cost, and retail is $34, then the mark-up is 3 times over cost, or 300%.
