This deal is a bit of work, but you can get a great deal for 5 qt jug Valvoline motor oil.

The key is to stack the following discount at Walmart in-store
  • Price Match to Walmart.com (walmart policy [walmart.com]). You can do this right at the check out line.
  • $3 print at home Valvoline Manufacturer's coupon at coupons.com. It'll say it's for kmart, but since it's a manufacturer's coupon, it'll work at walmart as well. It'll scan at check out, no need for manager override. (expires at 8/31)
  • $3.50 ibotta [ibotta.com] rebate - instant rebate with a Valvoline motor oil purchase at walmart in-store.
  • $10 Valvoline MaxLife rebate [valvoline.com]. People on BobIsTheOilGuy.com forum have confirmed that they received the rebate check for both the full synthetic and synthetic blend max life motor oil after 4-8 weeks. Offer ends at 9/30/16. Limit 1 per household

The prices in-store were generally higher than walmart.com prices, so price match is necessary.

Synthetic Blend - Max Life - High Mileage
5W-20 [walmart.com] for $15.88 before discount, $0.62MM after
5W-30 [walmart.com] for $17.74 before discount, $1.24 after
10W-30 [walmart.com] for $17.74 before discount, $1.24 after
10W-40 [walmart.com] for $17.74 before discount, $1.24 after

Full Synthetic - Max life - High Mileage
0W-20 [walmart.com] for $18.49 before discount, $1.99 after
5W-20 [walmart.com] for $18.49 before discount, $1.99 after
5W-30 [walmart.com]for $22.47 before discount, $5.97 after
10W-30 [walmart.com] for $19.98 before discount, $3.48 after

Note that the regular full synthetic (non High Mileage version) will not qualify for the rebate. Only the 'Max Life' products qualify for the rebate.

Question for the DIY-ers. is it harmful for a 125k mile car to switch back and forth between 5w30 and 10w30? I always use 5w30 [Los Angeles] but majority of sales have 10w30 much much cheaper than 5w30

I have never seen an oil sale with different prices between 5w and 10w Confused

Quick short cut for coupons.com.
Choose AUTOMOTIVE under categories tab.

Would someone mind attaching a copy of the coupon.com coupon?
I can't get it to printer properly on my computer/printer....

It'll be fine since you're in Los Angeles. The 5W and 10W represents the viscosity of the oil at low temperature. 5W is more suitable than 10W motor oil for extremely low temperatures (think -20C or colder). For temperature ranges you'll see in California, you won't see a difference between 5W30 and 10W30.

The coupons.com coupon is not generic unfortunately. The code is unique to each person that prints it.

I have a small, DIY bit of auto knowledge but of every book I've ever read and every automotive repair podcast I've ever listened to, one thing they all agree on is sticking with the oil weight recommended by the manufacturer. Oil does more than just lubricate and cool, its also used to provide timing chain/belt tension, actuate valves and more.

Agh, I thought my $6/bottle purchases were good. This is the same deal thats been going on for a few months now but there's an Ibotta rebate to stack on top.

FYI Ibotta needs IIRC $20 before you can cash out.

Maxlife rebate is 1 per household.

Too bad I used my allotment already. Thanks OP.

Another great promo to get after obtaining receipt from Walmart is a free t-shirt from Valvoline upon purchase of 5 quarts.

Could you post up anyway. Some stores are very relaxed about coupons.
