Page says it's $117.68 for 384 oz (12 qts). Guess you got a good deal.

We’ll see when it shows up if got it all. Last case I ordered had the same reviews of single bottles but I got it all. 1Z78R51W0313927355 Says 26# so I think it’s a full case.

Keep an eye on that link. It was $10 this morning and by lunch time was $117 again. Was back to $10 just before I ordered my 2nd case and now it’s $117 again.

Not Bait and Switch. Many people do not know what that means. B&S means the product really is for sale at that price, but when you show up to buy it, you find it is very substandard and/or get a really hard sale pitch to buy something else.

Sending something not ordered is either a mistake, or just plain fraud.

The Amazon bot will see an increase in activity here and keep the price up for awhile.

The best I'd hope for is ignore it, hope everyone else forgets about it, and check back in 3 mos

Or better yet just set up a CCC alert....

Why am I getting the impression that JustChuck is perhaps associated with Champion? Coincidentally last week there was another promoter of this brand that got banned.

Interesting how the top three product attributes on Amazon are:

Quote
High quality construction and durability
High quality construction and durability
Top quality products to enhance the style, comfort and functionality of your vehicle

The 5W-50 (subject of this thread) appears to show API SN on the label, but it isn't listed on the API EOLCS so I'm skeptical of that. No other approvals or certs I can find.

I have no idea what the Amazon person means by "Bob" approving oil, but if someone is happy with no approvals or certs and a possibly deceptive API licensing statement then by all means they should go for it. On the other hand, one might consider that the promoter on Amazon could the same entity promoting it here.

Another interesting thing is that if you click on the seller's name in the Amazon description (CHAMPION BR) you are taken to pages and pages of women's sport bras.
