What can you do with a $20 bill these days? Lunch with a friend? Movie tickets? Perhaps a newfound garden weasel that is being sold on national TV. If you’re cheap enough, you can actually take care of your car’s routine maintenance for quite a long time. Thanks to the consumerist Christmas known as Black Friday the season to be cheap is upon us. For instance…
Pep Boys are the absolute kings of Black Friday. Last year they offered 5 quarts of API SM motor oil AND a store brand filter for $5. This time they are offering Purolator Classics, Castrol GTX, and selling the same exact package for $1 more (Limit two). If you happen drive 10k to 15k a year this may be all the oil you’ll ever need for 2011.
What about coolant? How about $1 a gallon. You can buy two of those as well. Champion spark plugs are free with the rebate and you get 16 of those. Prostop brakes which often run at $50+ for the premiums set are only $10.99. Last year I bought all the above for both our cars along with a 10 x 20 Canopy for $49 which seems to be holding up pretty well. For the Best & Brightest who are already DIY folk, you may indeed be able to keep your commuter car going for the price of lunch.
