Pennzoil still on sale? #4894551

I was in my local CDN Tire store yesterday and purchased another jug of Pennzoil Platinum (I can't help myself! blush)
http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/pennzoil-platinum-syntheticengine-oil-5-l-0289323p.html#spc

While I was there, I thought I'd check out some Fram Filters as they were on sale as well but when I went to look at the XG-10575 (Ultra) for my wife's 17, 3.6 Impala, I seen the sale price was at $15.99 and the regular at $20 plus change?? ???

Just checking on line now, I seen the filters regular price at $15? Any idea if these are going up soon and if CDN Tire jumped the gun or were they intentionally inflating the price?
I now wish, of course, I had of taken a pic of what I seen and unless I am losing it, I swear that is what I read/saw.
http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/fram-ultra-synthetic-oil-filter-0171844p.html

Needless to say I didn't purchase any but did purchase 2 TG's for her car and my son's as they were priced on sale correctly.

Anyone else notice this?

Thanks for posting the info on the oil. With the current rebate that's an excellent price!

I've never seen the Ultra filters for $20 and I think $15 is already expensive. I'll check the price when I go to get the oil today.

Can someone explain the difference between regular and "Euro Formula" Pennzoil Plat ? Acvantages/Disadvantages

Head straight to WalMart. The oil there is on Rollback for $28.88. I'll post pics in a while but I seen "some" Fram filters at WalMart for $19 and change so something is going on and verifies what I seen at CT yesterday.
The XG's there were $14 and change but a couple similar ones right beside those were $19.xx ???

Pic of the $19 dollar Fram Filters at WalMart less than an hour ago. At CDN Tire yesterday, they were $20+ for the canister XG10575's as I previously mentioned. Keep in mind this is the same store that showed they had 3 lockable extension sets but no one could find them. The employee admitted to me, they don't really have their sh*t together at this store. crazy

Wouldn't one think these $19 dollar filters are cheaper to make than the canister type? ???

I just picked up a couple of the Pen Platinum jugs and yes, many of the filters are $20 each, including some of the Mobil 1 extended performance. Don't forget the Pennzoil rebate available online. Easy and fast!

That seems to be the norm with CT.

Just last Wednesday while grocery shopping at a nearby Whole Foods, I decided to get out of the produce section and duck into a nearby CT.
I was on the lookout for a replacement G4 bulb for out bedside light. Online the system said they had about 20 in stock.

Only when I got there they claimed they "haven't filled the shelf yet".
And of course, it was too much to ask for the staff to go into the back and source them for me

When did the price of filters go up and why do they still show $15.99 as their regular price on their website? I was fully expecting to pay $11-$12 bucks for one on sale, not $15.99, which I was use to seeing as their regular price.

Seems most places are getting worse rather than better! I looked again the other day for those lockable extensions and again, none could be found even though it looked like their shelfs had been recently stocked. ??? crzy

Check eBay.
I am averaging around $5USD per filter when I buy by the case.

Yup that's what I did with my fleet. You just can't beat the per unit price on a Ultra Guard filter when you purchase by the case on ebay

I'm glad neither of my vehicles takes those $19 dollar filters but if the price continues to go up on them as well, I may just look into purchasing some bulk filters?

Oh, I know. I am not sure when they went up, but it was definitely very recent. I was able to purchase 2 TG's for my wife's and son's cars and they were still at the old prices but they are likely going up soon as well? mad

This is what happen when you let "machine learning" price your merchandise without human double checking.

Once upon a time Target's store brand contact solutions were priced around $5 for 2 bottles vs $12 or so for name brands, then one day they were all of a sudden raised to around $14 or so and don't know why. After no one bought them for a week they probably realized where their problem was, and ever since then they are always around $2-$4 lower than name brands.

I was quite surprised to see the increase, especially on the XG10575 but was shocked when I see it on the non canister type filters at Walmart. I am not sure who made the mistake, WalMart or CDN Tire, as both filters are completely different from one another.
My gut tells me, and it makes more sense, that CDN Tires pricing is likely correct as the ones they showed were the canister type.

Did anyone hear of this price increase coming? Hopefully, if it remains, it is only for the Ultras and nothing else.
