Need to change your oil soon and do it yourself? Advance Auto has some awesome oil change deals right now if you don't mind using Valvoline recycled oil.

You can actually end up making $2.50 per oil change.

If you buy 5 quarts (of Valvoline NexGen), a Purolator filter (White with Regular & Gold with NexGen MaxxLife High Mileage) it comes out to $20.99 with the combo deal ($24.99 with High Milage); also add the Blitz Oil Recyling Can, since it's free with the combo (Reg. $6.39). You can buy in-store, or pre-order online to get this price and you also will get cashback. File online for the $20 Amex PP Card at advanceautoparts.4myrebate.com and submit for a $7 MIR (or $10 w/ MaxxLife High Mileage) to Valvoline. Total "cost" is $-6.01 ($-5.01 with High Mileage).

$109 for a remote car starter ($260 value) in Monaca

EDIT: meh most cars will require an $80 bypass. so $200 for a remote starter installed isnt horrible but the remote start only costs $45 at Sears.

Picked up a Samsung camera yesterday at Target for $80. Two months ago the same camera was selling for $150. It was on sale for $90, but since it was a demo unit they knocked it down to 80.

Want to guess who negated the $10 savings by buying the wrong memory card and destroyed the packaging it came in? :face:

I didn't even think to look for it. I thought it was like 95% of the cameras available and used SD. I'm not even sure I own anything that would use an SD card.

I was running a 5-6 year old Olympus that has been dropped, kicked, probably dropkicked, chewed on by a chocolate lab, found it's way into the mud during a race, etc. I'm not sure why, but it's been acting weird lately. I'll turn it on and about 4/5 times it wants to format my card immediately. It takes a few times of cycling the power for it to work. It was only 7 MP, but the 10x optical was a nice feature.

Maybe I'm not a man, but I've tried changing my oil the last two times and I haven't been able too.

The first time, the oil drain cap was stripped.

This time, it was on so damn tight that I couldn't budge it. Nevertheless, I still have a bunch of clean oil in my cabinet waiting to be used.

Changing your oil isn't worth it unless you're poor. I've done it before so I would know how to do it, but I go to a 10 minute oil change every time now. I sit in my car and listen to a couple songs while they do it and they also wipe my windows clean.

Have you seen the undercover videos at those places? I wouldn't trust them to put in the right oil and filter.

I'd replace it once you get it off, and put some anti-seize on the threads. That will stop it from getting overtightened.

Changing my oil is absolutely worth it every single time. Forget that I woundn't dream of putting conventional in my LS4... I wouldn't let one of those highschool geeks pop my hood. I'm happy taking the oh so precious ten minutes to drive up on a set of ramps in my garage and saving 50 bucks. Poor or not, being capable and not doing so is just lazy imo because it's almost possible to not even get your hands dirty doing so.

I used to change my oil myself but I don't anymore. I can get it done for $25 at the dealer where I got my vehicle, I'd spend almost $20 on the oil and filter at Walmart so the extra few bucks isn't a big deal, if the savings were greater I'd still do it. Plus the oil filter is in a crappy place compared to my last car so I prefer not having to fiddle with it. Also, taking it into the dealer they'll look over everything else while I'm there and wash my car, it really makes no sense to change the oil myself anymore.

Except that that don't put the correct oil in your car and never change the oil filter.

Not sure how "amazing" this deal is, but HockeyAttire.com (spinoff of HockeyGiant) has Reebok 7185 jerseys (replica)'s for 25% off...they have a Fleury Black XL left as I type this but not blank Pens jerseys:

http://www.hockeyattire.com/20091111ha. ... ckeyAttire

Use coupon code: RBK7185JER25 at checkout for the 25% off.

For what it's worth, it seems that only the jerseys on the link above qualify for the discount (they have Pens jerseys on their site but no discount :( )
