Strolling Home Depot and found this Rotella Gas truck Yellow tag $12.06 Empty shelf ''unavailable' listed on website.

I did pickup 2 jugs of Prestone All-Season 3 in 1 windshield fluid for .93 cents per gallon, also shows ''unavailable'' on website.

I can never understand why items are on sale at some Home Depots and not others. i checked my local HD and it was still $32.95. BJ's Club has a six pack of RGT on sale for $9.99 but the closest one that has it available is over an hour away.

same here...I went to 4 different Home Depots...2 were out of the Gas Truck Oil and the two that still had some stock (both places the oil jugs were really dusty) had the $32+ price...I asked at both of those places even showing a pic of your $12.06 price and was told at both places that Home Depot does not match their own prices from other stores on this type of sale as it is a Managers closeout sale...

Just to add to those that were lucky enough to find this...Shell still has a rebate of $10 per jug up to 4 jugs and that would make your price $2.06 or .41 cents a quart for some reportedly really good, synthetic oil

My local HD store had the clearance price marked on the shelf but someone beat me to it. I checked the Rotella rebate page and did not see HD listed as an approved retailer. YMMV

I had to return some unused mulch at my local HD this morning and remembered to check. Got the last 3. They all had a good layer of dust on them. Anyone else retailing this oil for more than $20 will probably have to clearance it out at some point. Good oil but not priced very competitively in a lot of places.

There are way, way too many brands of oil being marketed by the majors. How many different synthetic 5W-30 oils is just SOPUS marketing between the Shell, Pennzoil, Quaker State and Rotella labels plus all of the sub-brands under each label? It is crazy and inefficient, especially since for 99.9% of applications nobody will ever actually be able to tell a difference in engine performance or longevity. It gives us Oil OCD folks something to spend time on, but where is the actual value add????

I called Shell rebates and they said NO! to honoring rebate on this @ Home depot. It's a pass for me as I just don't need it now.

That's just how it works these days. The point sometime isn't that the product doesn't sell, it's to prevent other products from taking up the same shelf space. So a lot of the majors actually pay for shelf space to have their products on there and pay enough to block out other companies. Walmart is a little tougher in that if it doesn't start to move, they'll kick them out after a while, but it can sit there for a little while. Mobil 1 was trying to push their annual protection oil at one point and it just didn't sell, they did take up a lot of shelf space for a while but those contracts must have expired and it doesn't take that much space anymore and the price came way down after it didn't sell.

Not as good as HD clearance deal but Amazon/Walmart has it at $18.28 for 5qt jug. Still comes out to a good deal after rebate for TOP TIER oil thumbsup
