Idemitsu 0w 20 oil was marked down on clearance at the local Advance Auto today for $3.55 for the 4 qt. container, and the quart bottles for 85 cents.

My local AA had several of both the 5 qt. containers and 1 qt. containers but wouldn't sell them to me for the prices that scanned (what the OP quoted) He said it was a 'mistake'....when I went back a few days later it was all gone... I called the dork out on it but he denied glomming it. I've considered reporting it to corporate but I doubt he will face any consequences...

A good way to lose a customer forever and those that hear about it and might have been customers. Its to far to drive to my nearest AA just to get that kind of treatment.

He didn't, but I bet his ricer buddies got some when they were buying a fake hood scoop or fake fender vents.
I got 3 gallons and 3 quarts.

Similar to what happened when I found the "mistake" QSUD. $8.45 for the 5 quart jug, they had 3 of them. Told me they couldnt sell it because it was a mistake and they were supposed to pull it off the shelf. Then they said they could sell me 1 of them, I negotiated into 2 of the 3.

Same exact store shows 4 of the Idemitsy gallons in stock.....will try going there during non-peak hours to see if it just sneaks by without issue.

I had that happen. The AAP had 3 gallons, but when the commercial account guy heard the price, he told the clerk I could only have 2.

When she came around the corner, I refrained from calling them out for their "actually, I counted wrong" story.

I haven't yet had anyone deny me any outright, but one refused to match the clearance price when it rang up full retail

I will try visiting two locations here in Shreveport this Monday afternoon: East 70th Street and Kings Highway in the eastern part of town on my way home from work. Will report back Halloween morning. Darn, but I sure would like a gallon or three of this fine oil for my Honda's.

Thanks for posting this Electromotive. When I called the AAP near work and asked the clerk to scan it because it's supposed to be on clearance, he said "I don't think so we just got new stuff in". He was shocked when quarts rang up 85 cents and jugs were $2.95. They only had 2 gallons and 6 qts. I grabbed them all.
