Another Groupon deal for an oil change in Canada. Why is it that without a coupon or Groupon, oil changes are so much more expensive in Canada that it is in the United States? This is a common thing that keeps coming up and confusing me. Are gas prices that much higher in Canada too?
Well regardless, Groupon is here to save the day again by bringing you a cheap oil change courtesy of OK Tires in Edmonton, Alberta.
There are three options with this Groupon special.
- $20 for a single oil change with a 150 point inspection
- $55 for three oil changes with 150 point inspection
- $69 for an auto care package consisting of an oil change, 150 point inspection, and a wheel alignment
First off, I’d recommend going for option 2. This deal doesn’t expire until June 2013 so you’ll have plenty of time to use all three oil change coupons.
The oil used for this service is Castrol 5W-30 or 5W-20 regular oil.
I have never heard of a “150” point check, they are usually around 20-40, but it includes an inspection of brakes, suspension, undercarriage, battery, lights, exhaust, and fluid levels.
