If you have one near you. Looks like they are having a clearance on this oil. 3/qt. No rebate needed. Not a bad deal...I think?

yeah not bad, i bought 8 quarts of it last time i was there.


weird because they just started stocking it at my local store and now its being clearanced out already....strange.


next time i go there i'll buy more, probably the rest of it, if any is available.


I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.

I don't particularly like dealing with a bunch of individual quarts, but I'd probably buy some at that price.
It's nice to get good oil at such a low cost without dealing with rebates!

I'm not sure why I think this, but I wonder if Menard's got a smoking hot deal on about 10 truckloads of this stuff.... and that's going to be it. When it is gone, it is gone.

I just hope they keep selling the Formula Shell dino for less than $2 a quart on sale... on a regular basis.

it was weird they had Shell conventional for a long long time then out of the blue they clearanced it all out. along with some other oils.

then they had national oil for while, then they clearanced that all out and now Shell conventional is back.

and instead of National oil they now have FVP labeled oil, no idea who makes it but i'm sure its fine.


I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.

oh they also had Super S oil sometime in there as well but same thing, clearanced it all out.

even before it was clearanced out they had great pricing on the 5 quart jugs, i think regular price was 11 or under

I didn't realize it was a clearance price.

I was at my local store last weekend and noticed they had the synthetic for $2.99 a quart and conventional for $1.99 a quart. Seemed like typical sale prices to me.

I just picked up a case of 6. I pulled up the price on my phone because nothing was marked as clearance and I wanted to double check, it did ring up at the clearance price. Some of you were wondering why it is on clearance. The one thing I've noticed with Menard's is they change what they carry sometimes about as often as you raise and lower the shades in your house.

Hmm. Thanks for the reminder to check online. Says clearance price for my store, but the store itself doesn't have it labeled on the shelf. Gonna go check if it scans at 2.99

Can confirm $2.99/qt even tho the shelf isn't labeled at the Oakdale MN Menards. Pretty sure that's why no stock is moving. Wonder if it'll drop even lower.

Picked up a 3 bottles of 5w20 to mix with the 2 Napa singles I have left for the next OCI.

Grabbed 2 bottles of 5w30 to service the mower and snowblower.
