:
Looks like you can buy 2 of the Pennzoil Synthetic AND 2 of the Mobil 1 Synthetic for $123.92.

Then you can get $60 back from Pep Boys.

You can get $24 back from Mobil 1.

You can get $20 back from Pennzoil rebate.

So you can get 20 quarts of Synthetic oil for 19.92 + (tax on $123.98). Maybe I should buy this in Delaware since I am near there : ).
Now that is the power of SD thinking. Alternatively you could take the advice of some, skip all the hassle and spend the extra $100.

Quote from DonV1962
:
You waste an extra $8, ten or twenty times a year, do that over a period of a lifetime. Do the math yourself but I'll give you a clue it's a loss that is in the tens of thousands and can be even in the hundreds of thousands if you consider the loss you take on not putting that money somewhere where it can make money.
Let's take your own advise further. You speak of investing the money saved, but yet you are willing to loan $15 to a company and wait 8-12 weeks for them to give it back to you without any profit?

I think your advice bad. An online submission that takes seconds to save $8 might work to $25 an hour or more to make up for the loss. Skipping ten seconds and then having work and extra twenty minutes or so to make it up at what can be a grueling job is not smart financially or sensibly.
You are completely entitled to your thoughts, some I agree with. But there is also always a risk with rebates coming through or getting denied. You usually have to keep track and follow up which equates to work. If you have a good system for that then it may work for you. I am not against rebates, but I will usually opt for the generic brand that cost the same as getting the rebate and save my self the time and possible headache if that is a choice.

I do agree with you on being conscious of the money you spend and living below your means to gain wealth. Sadly, there are a lot of people that don't do that. But to put someone who would rather buy generic to skip rebate hassles for $8 in with saving saving $100 by rebate stacking is a stretch.

FYI, I've done Pennzoil rebates twice and they have honored them both times. Processing is a bit of a wait but they usually arrive within 1-2 months. Super easy to fill out the rebate form online, you don't have to mail any forms or cut out any UPC crap. Also I use Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 5W-30 in my car (Infiniti G35 coupe). This is an excellent oil for a great price.

FYI-

As this was posted weeks ago, Walmart has the Mobil 1 on sale for $22.88 plus a $5 off Mobil 1 gift card and then you have the Mobil one rebate for $12. Bringing the total cost to $5.88 if it matters to anyone.
$5off Mobile 1 gift card (amazon or Starbucks) is only if you purchase an oil change:

As I said before I did the Pep Boys rebate and the Mobil1 rebate. Now I see both rebates were approved.
Yep, I bought online for pickup in Delaware. Got 3% CB on BF and no tax. My CC also gives 2% CB as well.

A $8 loss is a $8 loss any way you look at it. The $8 could be better applied to some other necessity or purchase that brings more value. For those that can dismiss $8 and do it multiple times it adds up to real money quickly. That's real money that is gone forever and if there is a shortfall that is money that will not have to be gotten by additional labor or some other means such as a loan. It's math and can't be gotten around. It doesn't matter if the $8 is saved by a coupon, careful shopping or a rebate all of which all take some small hassle and time but being out $8 unnecessarily takes time to make up for the loss. It never really is made up as the loss is forever and can not be gotten back. .For those making a low hourly rate in can add up to an hour or more of labor that might have to be made up, on a weekend or holiday which That is another loss if you value your free time and leisure that has to be added up to the losing equation.

My comments were more general to the dismissive of the small sums seems to run heavy in this thread. No way were they intended to be attacking of the poster that I responded to but I did think the post while more reasonable still carried the same theme of the dismissive of small savings.

As to rebate hasses I have never found them to take more than a few monets to file and keep track of. A note pad and a minute. In fifteen to twenty years of doing rebates I think I have only ever been denied or not gotten one and really don't know whey they are so wearisome to so many. It's hassle to get up to go to work and takes much more effort and time to do it. If I can not stress having to get another hour or more in at work by the fact of saving some money with a rebate that I can handle in the comfort of my home I think the rebate even more valuable than the face value.

I'm not loaning money to the company when I pay the retail price. I paying the same price that those that buy off the shelf do. I end up paying less than those that don't take the small time and effort to do the rebate and can take that savings and invest it in something that brings me a better a return. In this case one or two cold ones versus oil that I will get used up.

Everybody seems to misunderstand rebates. They are not a scam to lure you and and not pay you. They are if you are of the personality type that ignores small sums. You can take the little form home and ignore it or toss it and then just pay retail price which can be dismissed by claiming that the rebate is a hassle anyway. They are price discrimination. In this case Pennzoil can sell there oil to those that would usually buy generic without outraging their customer base. Those that don't care about or that don't have the fortitude to fill in an online form will just pay retail of the shelf price and Pennzoil gets to sell some excess product to a larger market without having to change a sticker price in store.

For what reason was it denied and did you do an follow up to get it approved? We don't yet know what lesson needed to be learned.

They claimed it was a duplicate rebate, even though my previous Pennzoil rebate was in December last year. This rebate should have been a new offer starting January. I didn't see anything on their site with a way to contact them other than resubmitting and probably getting denied again. Not worth the hassle for $10.

That is still a little vague. The "rebate should have" lacks a certain surety and could mean you made a mistake. The lesson learned may be if you don't follow up on getting money due you you may not get it.

Here is the comtact for Penzoil rebates
Please call 1-866-707-6737 or visit www.shellrebatecenter.com/pennzoil [shellrebatecenter.com]

If I got $10 for every phone call I need to make in a day, I'd be a very rich man. I guess it's matter of perspective but when someone owes me ten bucks and a phone call can resolve it I'm there. I have even been known to make threats over $10. Everybody must be living much larger than me or something. How much you make an hour that you can be nonchalant about $10.

Pennzoil rebates suck. They mysteriously lost my entry, even though I had an email confirmation from them. I called and the csr told me to forward the email. I did and they resubmitted only to be denied. No reason given. Not worth the hassle and done with buying pennzoil.

so my wife picked it up but didn't get the receipt. Surprisingly, they couldn't print her a new one from her credit card info. Anyone know if I can return and rebuy with the merchandise credit if I will still get the rebate?

You seem to have a very high opinion of yourself. When I get denied a $10 rebate when I followed all the steps, I'm not going to bother buying that company's product or do their rebates again. And I will share my experience with anyone else who might be interested in their products. And there are many people in this thread and other Pennzoil threads who have gotten their rebates denied for BS reasons. Why do you feel the need to defend this company's shady rebate practices?
