How many here, besides me, buy their oil and filters at WM? I have read on here how some would rather not buy ANYTHING from WM. Why? Do you like spending at least $10 more for the same 5 qt. container of oil at a parts store than to buy it at WM? Oh, I get it. It's that lump in your throat called PRIDE! Careful now, don't choke on it.

If somebody wants to buy stuff elsewhere, what do you care?

FYI, I dont buy my oil and filters at WM because they dont have what I want.

I buy oil at WalMart and I get my filters from my work. Except the 5W50 for my car comes from work since that is like a unicorn out in the wild.

I dislike Wal-Mart quite a lot due to business practices but I do buy oil and filters there because the price is too good. I don't really go there for anything else though.

I buy most everything online, including oil.

If you pay attention, it would seem that most here buy their oil on sale at part stores, or from Walmart, or both.

I think the only oil I didn't buy at WM was M1 5W30 ESP that they don't carry. I'm probably not buying any more of that, though.

I found a great deal on the Tokyo Roki oil filters that I like on Amazon and have 10 waiting in a box. I looked for that deal out of curiousity last week and the per filter price was about $11 instead of $3-4 (with free shipping instead of about $10 for a big shipment, though).

Walmart, Meijer, Rural king, orsheln etc. I buy at any of these as they are all priced similar. I generally get what I need when I go get something else.

I do like walmart and meijers selection the best, however.

Easy there baby moose. Let's not get our panties in a wad. And, I could care less where others buy what they want elsewhere. I was merely S-T-A-T-I-N-G how WM's oil prices are MUCH cheaper, so why buy it elsewhere? smirk

As evil as Wal-Mart is, I have no issue buying things there that are cheaper than other places. We don't have one locally so when I do go I usually hit up the ammo aisle and the oil aisle. One of my friends usually gives me money to pick up Rotella T6 for him.

Totally unrelated, the Wal-Mart I go to has a ton of .300 AAC Blackout. Kind of strange but good for me.

Look at my join date wise guy. You don't think that I have been around here long enough to PAY ATTENTION? SMH! smirk

I detest WallMart! But, I make an exception for oil. I go in and out really quick. Otherwise; I rather pay extra at grocery stores vs Wallmart. They are an evil company, reference employees benefits etc. Yet, I admit that they do a lot of donations in the community. For whatever that is worth.

I just bought Castrol EDGE 5W-30 Full Synthetic Motor Oil, 5 qt at Walmart locally it's $36 plus at O'Reilly's. That [censored] near gives me two Oil changes for the price of one. It was $20.14 at Walley World.

I dislike WM and their business practices... That said, I do buy oil, filters, fluids and a few other things from there. I don't go tonauto part stores much, I mostly buy repair parts at autoanything.com.

Also, I can occasionally find a decent cut of whole brisket for a great price at WM. I'm always on the lookout for a deal on a good brisket to slap on the smoker.

Also, often times Amazon sells jugs of oil for the same price as WM with free shipping.
