    All the events are on public roads.
    Not to surprising considering every dealership is going to get a visit.

    At Oktoberfest 1989 in Keystone CO BMW offered test drives to CCA members. The test route was from the hotel to the top of Loveland Pass and back. Myself and a Roundel columnist(who shall remain nameless) would take cars out at the same time and see who could get to the top and back down in the shortest amount of time. After the third run our spouses refused to ride with us. Funny thing; we never had a really scary moment even though we had a reputation for burning up the test route. On the last test session of the last day a new E30 M3 was totaled, and everyone thought we were the culprits, but we were innocent.
    For once.

    Yesterday Chevy was at this theme park and handed out T-shirts for anyone who signed up for their mailing lists. It's white with an old school Chevy logo on it.

    Just a heads up for anyone else who sees a Chevy stand around anywhere else. All 4 of us got one.

    Discount Tires - Buy any set of 4 tires or wheels and get $100 rebate or buy any set of 2 tires or wheels and get $50 rebate. Installed.

    Offer valid 29-30 June only.

    Some people report that they got the discount even though they didn't use Discount Tire for installation, but YMMV.

    I saw coupons on the necks of 5-quart size jugs at Walmart on Pennzoil products. They had an aisle display as well as the dispensing rack.

    $5 off the 5-quart bottle or $1 off up to 5 1-quart bottles.

    Instant coupon at register--no mailing.

    This Walmart is in West Central Ohio. Your area may vary.

    Good find. I got a jug of SuperTech yesterday for ~$12.50. Might have grabbed the last jug of 5w30. They had squat for choice and nothing on special at the local Walmart here. Hm, I may have overlooked the end caps though.

    I haven't done a mail-in rebate for months. They are just too much of a pain unless it's an especially good deal. I really hate getting "gift cards" back.

    I have a Caribou Coffee reloadable gift card. When it drops below a pre-set balance it automatically adds a few bucks from a credit card. I take rebate gift cards into the local CC location when I'm getting a cup of coffee and have them add the balance to my Caribou card. I tell them the exact amount it's good for. No fees or fuss, credit on the Caribou card never expires, it defers the next automatic reload, and I know I'll use it up.

    Automatic withdrawals scare me a bit. Plus I'd lose the card. :blush:

    >Hm, I may have overlooked the end caps though.

    These are square 4 x 4 cards with a rubber band that holds them to the bottle neck. One display was an aisle island in automotive in the main aisle and they had the coupons on the bottles in the slide racks for the oil and antifreeze.

    I wonder if it's a zone-by-zone thing when they get shipments in from Pennzoil supplier.

    Could be or maybe our stores are just at the end of the supply chain (which could explain why supplies of the store brand seemed thin too).

    I took my mom's Fiesta in for service and got the oil and filter changed plus tires rotated at the dealer for $45, including tax. $63 minus coupon for $18, minus $10 mail in rebate. Also, 5% of the of the top line bill before taxes went into an account that can be applied toward any future service department charges.
    Net is about $32.

    tires rotated

    Ah, shoot, I need to do that.... Thanks for the reminder (I think).

    I haven't tried this; just grabbed the info from FatWallet:

    "If you go to http://www.nfl.com/sweepstakes/gmc and enter to win the Superbowl tickets and GMC vehicle. Sign up with e-mail address, select options on GMC vehicle you like, and enter ame and address info, then a popup will come up giving you a unique GMC code for a test drive worth $50! Write down or print out the code and follow instructions for test drive and redemption."

    Turn your sound down before opening the NFL page - you'll have to suffer through some loud talking heads otherwise.
