I got in on the 2 x 5 quart jugs of Kirkland 0w20 for $24.99 including shipping deal Costco ran last week. The tracking information indicates it was shipped from Omaha, NE which l believe is where the oil manufacturer is located.
Most online orders from Costco l get originate from a huge Costco distribution center in my state. Is it possible that Costco sends all oil orders for the manufacturer to ship directly?

Costco has a store/warehouse in Omaha NE. Could be as simple as the distribution center near you (and others) didn't have it in stock or maybe they don't break pallets for onsie-twosie orders so they shipped it from a store.

How many days after you order did you get yours?
I ordered last Friday and am out in Southern California.

It was a 3 day sale, but it was posted somewhere on this site.

I also ordered on Friday. Mine has been shipped and is in transit. I won't be using it until April.

All the stores seem to only have 5w30 in stock for $25. The other grades are online ordering only for $29.99, unless they have a sale like they did last week. Hopefully the product sells well enough for them to stock other grades in the stores.

over 18 pages of brand names Warren makes.
Kirkland just one of dozens; also Meijer, Amazon, PepBoys, etc, etc, etc ...


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

True, in fact I think it's 4 and I believe they even make their own bottles.

Most facilities that "bottle" enough of an item is likely to make the bottles on-site. Almost all bottled water plants I know of make their own bottles. No doubt that Warren does the same.
