Thought I would share....

I scooped up some wiper blades today at Advanced and noticed the Bosch Icons had a $10 Gift Card promo. I placed my order online and saved 25% (code ujoint) plus, the rebate. Not a bad deal.

Meh. I was just shopping new wiper blades on RockAuto yesterday. Just to get ideas on pricing comparisons. They have the Icons priced around 4-5 bucks each, depending on which size. Yes, you have to pay shipping, but if you stock up from the same warehouse (1 shipping charge), it's a MUCH better deal. AA has the Icons listed for my F150 (22") at $25.99. That is simply highway robbery. On Rock Auto, I can get 4 sets for each of my 3 vehicles (12 blades total) for $71 after shipping, which comes to $5 each. Getting a set with this AA deal would end up around $22 each + tax on $54 (~10% in my area = ~$5) = $24.50 each. No comparison whatsoever. Even if you factor in an additional 25% off coupon.

Thanks for sharing though. It helps us all see how weak some of these "sales" really are.

You really can't compare a retail chain to a wholesaler/distributor like R.A


Shame AAP was my main local parts store back in day when they had AWESOME discount codes and priced matched with rock auto !!! Once those perks went away, They lost ALL of my business and now use Autozone/Pepboys/Oreillys

I guess it depends on your size. With shipping RA was only $3 cheaper than AA with the coupon. AA actually comes out cheaper when you factor the $10 rebate.

The 22" blades (F150 common size) were 25.99 each! Highway, freaking, robbery! My Mercedes C300 size, 24", was $1 more per blade (26.99!). All were around $5 on Rock Auto. It appears that my Mazda 3 is not correctly listed in their inventory. One is 19" (listed around $11 - not terrible with rebate), and the other is does not show up properly for my vehicle. Maybe some vehicles make out OK on this deal, but not anything over 21". You get absolutely robbed. They are losing money on some cars, and making up for it on the people that don't know better.

All in all, I think anyone is better off looking at deals when they come around on RA, or other online sites. One some of my purchase (especially close outs), they almost give away inventory if you can just pay shipping.
