Similar deals in the past, but it's live again.

Promo Codes:
TRT41 = 40$ off 100 (must be signed in to SpeedPerks to redeem)
TRT30 = 30% off up to 50$ off total purchase (for those still under $100 total)

Rebate:
Get up to a $40 Rebate ($20 per axle) with purchase of Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Brake Pads and (2) two Carquest Wearever Rotors. Limit 2. (Purchases must be on same ticket)

Link to rebate: http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/...t_wearever

Purchase by July 27, 2016, Redeem rebate by August 27, 2016

For me:
Front Rotors $29.99x2 = $59.99
Front Pads $48.99
Total: $108.97 - $40(TRT41) - $20(rebate) = $48.97

This is $0.02 cheaper than the platinum pads alone.

This deal is worth buying even if you don't quite need brake/rotors yet.

Analysis below by another poster is worth considering - may not always be the best initial purchase price. If you plan to keep your vehicle for a while, however, the Advance has a Lifetime Replacement Policy for brakes, so they will provide free replacements when they wear out. If you keep the vehicle long enough to do multiple brake changes, live in an area that is hard on brakes, etc. the free replacements can make this a better deal even if the initial purchase price is higher.

This may not be a great deal.

In my case the cheapest set for both axles was $210 after coupon and rebate.

I went to trusty amazon and they had a highly reviewed set for all four corners for $125 free freight. (not prime) BTW I did not find it looking for pads, I found it when I went to get rotors. (try throwing in the words 'combo max' when you search)

ALSO There were some 20% coupons showing on AC Delco pads. I clipped the coupon and in the cart it showed up as prime day savings. (shhh) In fact it gave me another 4 bucks off for some unknown reason. With the coupons, my vehicle it was $155. (if I bought the parts separately and not the combo)

I would normally suggest people not hesitate to spend the extra $30 on the most important thing you'll every buy for your car, but in this case the reviews were better on the combo than the parts so I went with the cheap one.

Lastly, for $145 (still cheaper than buying separately) I could have upgraded to slotted rotors but I don't tow with this vehicle and I drive like a papa and I hate the noise slotted rotors make so I passed.

Point being, don't just assume this is a great deal, in my case I got a better reviewed set for almost half the price and no rebate.

Ahhhhh too much! Do it yourself and save hundreds. Brakes are the most easiest parts on the car to change with the most highest cost savings. Go to Youtube.com and school yourself on how to do it.
Overall, a shop will charge you at least $800 to replace all rotors and pads on all 4 wheels.
I know because before I ventured into doing my own stuff, that's what I paid at BrakesPlus.
DIY and it's $130 for all 4 wheels!

Just DO NOT disconnect the brake fluid line from the calipers!
If you do that, you'll need to refill the brake fluid and bleed the brakes, and that's a PITA.

Check youtube and repair manual. In a nutshell...
- Spray the rotors with brake cleaner fluid to remove the protectant. (If you don't the protectant will smoke off and slip the first few times you brake. Not to mention get on the pads.)
- Loosen the calipers and move them to the side.
- Remove the old pads and old rotors.
- Replace with the new rotors and new pads. Use some brake grease at the pins.
- Put the caliper back and tighten down.

One of the easier jobs. Will still take a few hours.
Of course, you're dealing with brakes, so...
1. If you don't feel comfortable about doing the replacement, pay and have them done at a shop.
2. If you screw up, you won't be able to slow down, so check them before backing down a hill or driving forward.

Someone I knew did his "brakes" and messed with the brake line. He forgot to bleed the line and ran into the garage wall. Don't let this be you.
Brake pads are sold in axle sets.

For your car you would need to purchase:

x1 set of Front Brake Pads
x2 pieces of Front Rotors.

There's a chance that you have rear drum brakes on the matrix xr, so in that case, would need brake shoes instead of brake pads.

Cheap quality- used this set on the front of a 2009 Subaru about a year ago (about 9k miles), and they are warped to the point that they need to be replaced. I don't know if Advanced will cover them under warranty... Just the same, this is so cheap I may just buy them again, even though they are junk.

How much would labor cost for pads and rotors replacement.
Any of the chain stores like Firestone, pep boys, Munro do this?

I called the customer care center and warped rotors are covered under the 2year replacement warranty.
