    Walked into PepBoys earlier today to get some supplies. Came across the oil deal for this week. 5 quarts of synthetic oil, and a Gold Purolator filter for $27, and the 2nd bundle you buy is $25. That alone is a great deal (5 quarts of Pennzoil synthetic is normally $40+) Here is where the...

    Case of six (6) Pennzoil or Quaker State synth oils - $27, less $15 mail-in rebate. That's about $2.00 a qt after rebate. Purolater oil filters are $3, less $1 mail-in rebate (limit 4). While I've seen them cheaper than $2 each, that's not a bad price. ... If you can find it, you need to...
