I've noticed some posts lately about super cheap Advance Auto Parts clearance oil. I capitalized on the 20w-50 Castrol 5 quart jugs for $1.35, and very grateful for the info. My question is, how does one find out what is on crazy super cheap clearance at Advance Auto? Is it by chance that an item rings up crazy cheap or is this information searchable on the internet in some way? Thanks in advance for anybody that knows, I did attempt to search for info on the site and Google to no avail before asking in a new thread.

Weirdly enough, they still wanted $18.15 for the jugs of GTX 20W50 here, even though they had been pulled & stuck in the back room (for my nephew's rapidly leaking old Civic).

Agreed, no rhyme or reason.

I always thought clearance items are related to stock amount, time spent on the shelf, and / or phasing out last generation of product in a particular location. Similarly how AZ will dump at bottles of random oils for 2 bucks, got PP 0w20 when the new yellow bottles came out for example.

Usually what happens is a store does the right thing and posts the clearance price tag, somebody here sees it, and posts it here. Others go check their stores, some have it posted on clearance, some don't have it marked on clearance but it rings up clearance, others are marked and ring up full price.
