I am the worst at car maintenance. Really. I never remember when it is time to check tires or fluids, and I honestly don't even know how to do most routine maintenance things to my car. After the holiday season died down, I sneaked a peek at that handy little reminder sticker in the window of my minivan and realized...wow. We're super way behind on getting the oil changed! Yikes! So, I told my husband I was going to go take car of it all by myself. He thought I was being responsible. I thought, let's make a less-than-fun errand something amazing. What, you think I'm crazy? Nah. Thanks to Pennzoil at Walmart, I can tackle an oil change and some other errands at the same time!
Now, some people might choose to do something "normal" like grocery shopping or stocking up on clearance Christmas storage bins while waiting for their vehicle to be serviced in the Walmart Auto Care Center. But not me. I did pick up some dental floss along the way, but I found some other ways to spend my time, as well.
So, without further ado, I give you: 6 Things To Do While Getting Your Oil Changed.
This is even more fun if you can start off here when no one else is in the aisle and then startle an innocent shopper.
After last year's garden fail, this was a top priority.
Feel all the sad feels. It's okay. Maybe.
Who doesn't want a giant Star Wars spaceship displayed in their home at all times?
Or, you know, pick out a vacuum for your home. Whichever sounds more entertaining for your personal brand of enjoyment.
The beauty of getting your oil changed at Walmart is that whether you have time to have a mini mom vacation or you actually need to take care of your errands at the same time, you don't have to worry about your car's well-being. The Auto Care Center will take care of everything for you! Pennzoil is designed for complete protection and allows you to drive an extra 550 miles per year (compared to a car with a dirty engine). Our minivan has only been with us for two years, but it it's been on many travels, has seen far more than 75,000 miles and is well cared for with Pennzoil's High Mileage oil. If, like me, you have a car that's in serious need of an oil change, you can save $5 on a 5-quart bottle of Pennzoil with this coupon. And you can have your own mini mom vacation!
Is your car overdue for an oil change?
