Mobil 1 ESP on sale

FYI, For March 2015, $38 for 5 quarts at Pep Boys in the USA. DEF is $11 for 2.5 gallons.
Check page 9 of http://www.pepboys.com/weeklyad/

Note: Oil price include a filter. At my local store, they usually do not have the 335d diesel oil filter. Instead, I get a filter for my other non-diesel car.

Don't forget, there's a $15 rebate for M1 when you buy 5 qts + a M1 filter! http://slickdeals.net/f/7701409-5qt-...art-stores?v=1

BTW, Walmart is currently at $27 for a 5 qt jug, so if you're not adverse to hanging out with Walmartians, then you can save a ton of money and stockpile your own oil before the next oil embargo.

Not at all but do they stock the LL04? I know Pep Boys does.

I called Mobil1 to find out if Pep Boys is a participation retailer. They told me YES.

I downloaded the rebate form and I can claim $30 if I buy 10 liters and 2 filters. Today I got 10 liters of Mobil1 10w30 ESP and 2 oil filter (for the Honda) for a total of $76 before rebate. After rebate, it will be $46. Not bad at all for one of the best oil

montr I asked on others posts but I can't find mobil1 10w30 ESP. They only list 0w30, 5w30, 5w40 with ESP and BMW LL04 classification.

ON first post:
Check page 9 of http://www.pepboys.com/weeklyad/

It is on sale at Pep Boys this month. You have to buy at the same time a Mobil 1 oil filter to get that price. Also, there is a rebate from Mobil 1.

At my local store, the 10w30 ESP LL04 is on the shelf.

I do not understand unless the sale is a regional one. Both the 5w30 and 5w40 ESP are on sale.
Here is the sale item.

No. The 10w30 ESP LL04 is only available in 1 liter container at the store. I got 10 liters and 2 filters.

I went for the triple play. Since our 335Ds need 8L (really more like 7.5L), I needed to do it 3x to get 15L. I then paid the god awful full price of $12.79 for the last one to get 2 changes worth. I got filters for the other cars (2 dodge truck and 1 mustang filter).

Last time around (Pep boys ESP special) I got the BMW 335D filter. I then got a dealer oil filter to compare them. The Pep boys filter was german made (i recall it says MAHN on it). The OEM filter has rubber seal on it in a different place than the aftermarket. So, i haven't used the aftermarket one. I'm not going to worry about eating $15 to use the correct filter. I'll go look at it and perhaps post a picture of it here. It's funny because it's in a purolator box.

Please don't hate me for doing it three times. They had 26L of it there. They can get plenty of 5w-30 ESP from other Houston locations. I did the online rebate too but it's limit 2 per household. I figure saving $30 is help enough.

Ok Montr.
You were correct. I just picked up 10qts of 5w30 and 2 filters for the price you listed. Thanks, that's by far the best price I have ever seen on this ridiculously expensive oil. Don't forget there is a mobile one rebate of $15 times 2.

no shame in doing the triple play. Also, the M1 filters are on a separate rebate for the filter itself, so now you can double dip and get the oil & filter rebate as well.
If you need more address, use your family/friends/work addresses if needed to get them all redeemed.

OP, thanks for the great money saving TIP!

Picked up 10 quarts of Mobil 1 ESP 5w30, and two cases of DEF for the next 35d oil change. Saved $76 on two Mobil 1 filters (for my old van) and the oil at checkout. DEF was also discounted a few dollars a case. Submitted for $30 Mobil rebate. Plus my purchases earned me a $10 reward at Pep Boys (via their rewards program I registered for about a decade ago).

So, this single post saved me over $100!

Thanks again.

btw, M1 filters may be on sale on Amazon, check it out if the overall savings is better buying the filters here. They qualify for the rebate as well.

Bought some oil and filters yesterday. Pep Boys only had 9 in stock when I called in the a.m., but they were able to have another liter delivered by the time I got there around 8 p.m.

So, Mobil emailed me back saying that the rebates were held up. The email is pasted in below

Thank you for participating in the Mobil Retail Spring 2015 rebate offer.
We are unable to process your request for the following reason(s):
Your cash register receipt must show purchase of at least 5 quarts of Mobil 1, Mobil Super Synthetic or Mobil Super products to qualify for this offer.

Please submit your corrected submission again at https://apfco.net/secure/R8235W/ or mail your completed form and receipt no later than 06/30/2015 to:

Mobil Spring 2015 Rebate
PO Box 2988
Grand Rapids MN 55745

If you have questions regarding this offer, please call 1-866-895-9127.

So I called the number and got a person on the line. He provided me an email address to resend the scanned receipts and a scan of the form. I did this and next day lady wrote back saying i had given them identical copy of the same receipt twice. I looked and i had not. It turns out she had printed same file twice. I was nice about it and she apologized and now my rebate is processing. Trying to get my $30 fair and square. The 6 to 8 weeks clock is starting over again after waiting 2 weeks once.

The weird thing is my original rebate never showed up in the search that you can find within the online form to apply for rebate. You have to look real hard to find it toward bottom of form. Anyone have success with an email coming back saying your info is good and you will be getting something. The first time i applied it said i would here something in about a week. At top of previous paragraph, the first person that I got on phone said the system was really backed up and it was more like 2 weeks before you would hear something. Be persistent and perhaps you will succeed.

I received the same email and thought that the issue was that the receipt doesn't specify that the oil is Mobil 1 oil. It includes all other information including the part #. I was asked to snail mail the original receipt along with the form to a specific address. I might include a printout of the oil on Pep Boy's website with the part # as proof.

what store receipt are you using? Some of them are confusing. Last year when they did this deal, they processed my Walmart receipt properly with no issues. I bought mine at Walmart again this time and when I bought 2 5 qt jugs, the receipt said:

" Mobil 1 5Q 2 at $24.xx $48.xx".

Some cashiers scan each one so it's clear on each line that I bought 2. I hope my rebate processer reads it properly. I've learned that if you highlight or circle your receipts and rebate forms, it helps with their processing. I circled the number "2" on the receipt just to make sure they caught that.

Unless something has recently changed, Mobil1 ESP LL04 does NOT come in 10W30. It is available in 5W30 and possibly 0W30.

From the Mobil Oil website, link: https://mobiloil.com/en

"Based on what you've told us, your vehicle manufacturer recommends a 0W-30, 0W-40, 5W-30 or 5W-40 viscosity and oil that meets BMW Longlife LL-04. We offer these motor oils to help protect your vehicle. Results are displayed from highest to lowest level of protection."

Entered 2011 BMW X5 35d in the website tool for finding oil and filter for my car. Received this message "Based on what you've told us, your vehicle manufacturer recommends a 0W-30, 0W-40, 5W-30 or 5W-40 viscosity and oil that meets BMW Longlife LL-04. We offer these motor oils to help protect your vehicle. Results are displayed from highest to lowest level of protection."

Next, there was an image of a 1 quart bottle and more text: "Mobil 1 ESP Formula 1 5w-30 oil, Mobil 1 ESP 5W-30
Advanced full synthetic formulation that provides outstanding performance designed for diesel cars with particulate filters
Protects emission systems catalytic converter icon in black and white
Formulated to protect diesel and gasoline emission systems
5.0/55.0 / 5 Read all 3 reviews"

I put the rebate in the snail mail. The rebate may be here before I pay Uncle Sam?
