Walmart's online store has a bad reputation for this. A while back I tried to order 2 12-quart bottles from them, they were priced very low. They kept on sending me 2 quarts at a time. I ended up getting 6 free quarts of oil, but that barely made up for the time lost on the phone.

Seems like I get more notices like this recently. WARNING: Crackpot Theories ahead.
Marketing research and advertising(the same?) The response is measured for brand,quantity,location. Then your info is looked up to see what else you may buy or have bought.

Has anyone ( actually... I think I remember one person did) ever received an Ecobox when ordered?

It has happened before, but it caught them by surprise

When I got the shipment I was in for a surprise - it was 24 qts in a bag - what I guess they call a enviro-bag. Now I have enough for close to 5 OCI. Box says - part synthetic 5w-30 High Mileage API SN Energy conserving.

I have yet to hear of anyone who has EVER gotten one of those ECOboxes of motor oil from walmart.

They stock those for the quick lube shop, and they are not for sale to the public.

How they get on the walmart website, I have no idea.

I tried to buy them three times and never got one.

What happens is that when there's overstock for the TLE they list them on the website. That's why Fram CORE filters regularly pop up on WM.Com even though they're not supposedly for sale to the general public.

I know!
I mean, the nerve of Walmart adverting oil for less than eighteen cents a quart and then not coming across on the deal.
Anyone would consider this a legitimate offer, right?
