Saw the "clearance" cart at a local AutoZone store. Some 10w40 bottles and jugs at $2/qt. Castrol Edge 10w40 and Pennzoil Platinum and Pennzoil Platinum HM in older style bottles were not marked. I asked about a PPPP 5w30 jug. Rings out at... $39! Both employee and I were surprised. He asked a co-worker who said that yes, for whatever reason they are on clearance for $39 but he also said they would sell them for $20. (Probably via manager override of some sort?) I didn't want to haggle and left the jug there but thought I'd post here for PPPP fans. I guess synthetics on clearance for $1 or even $2 per quart are a thing of the past at AZ?

Naw..the 2$ clearance is usually end oct/nov/early dec..someone can prolly clarify but i know its around that time. I went mid December and all I got was cheap detailing products.

AZ does themselves a great disservice by not marking their sales clearly. Most of the time I walk in the store see their marked high price and just walk back out the door. I drive by one often but I have stopped even going in its been a waste of my time.

Or you could say that AZ does BITOGers a great service by not marking their sales clearly....I've brought oil up to the register several times for a price check (because I was tipped off on BITOG) and gotten it cheap....ie: $2 a quart for Magnatec, Mobil 1 etc...if they were clearly marked they would have been long gone....
