Subpar LOL How do you figure that its subpar?

$6.15/qt is a lot cheaper than many other places. Even by the quart, not jug, thats cheaper than walmart @ 6.79/qt and many other auto stores

Costco only stock the most selling grades, up until now 5-10W30 are selling more than any other grade.

Wait for $9 off coupon to bring the price down to $27.99 a case, and may be they will have 0Wxx.

I don't understand how Costco can have fewer locations, less selection and higher prices than WalMart and people get excited.

I love Costco, but can't for the life of me understand why anyone would buy oil there.


WalMart at 26 or even 27.84 is 5.50 a quart with 0-20 all the way to 40 weights. This is over 6 bucks. And you get your choice of 2 or 3 grades. And you still have to drive someplace else to get a filter???

Let's see. I only buy oil there when it goes on sale, and their prices are lower than Walmart. I get 2% back for shopping there. I don't use aftermkt filters. I like going to Costco. No one tries to pepper spray you at Costco on Black Friday and the people working and shopping there don't look like they just got out on parole.

Akin to Target, I try to do more shopping there, dont have the "Walmart Shoppers"...
Regardless, You cant avoid Walmart, thats like trying to Avoid McDonalds. And what do you know? Most Walmarts have Mcdonalds IN THEM and/or Across the street LOL.

I buy oil wherever I am, usually, I dont buy filters at Walmart, but some now Carry Bosch filters, so I might next time, I dont know

Costco's regular price on oil is not lower than Walmart's every day price. But Costco usually has $9 coupon on a case with some limit about every few months, this coupon will bring the price down to less than $5/qt. But I didn't buy it the last several times because they didn't have what I like which is 0Wxx. Currently Costco has $9 off coupon for either Shell or Chevron conventional, it makes the price per quart down to around $2, which is about 40-50% less than elsewhere.

Autozone will have 5 qt M1 with Bosch oil filter for $29.99 in about 10 days, that will make it a good buy if you want 0W40, which is not available in 5-qt jug, only in quart bottle for $6.xx at Walmart.

You'll have to pardon my ignorance, I didn't notice you were in LA. It's understandable you wouldn't want to go into a WalMart there. There are plenty around here I wouldn't want to go in either.

But here in suburban Oil Heaven (where PP is still 18 bucks for 5 quarts) WalMart has M1 for 22 bucks / 5 quarts and Costco has the 6 pack for 36.99. Even the 6 dollar IIRC coupon is laughable. And the Walmart employees aren't that bad... knocking on wood and praying...
