Oil change coupons are a great way to say thank you back to your car. Before you start traveling for the holidays, make sure you’re car is in tip-top shape. Performing basic car maintenance will save you in the long run. While not all maintenance offers deals, you can always count on using an oil change coupon when it’s time to get serviced.

According to Meineke, regular oil changes keep the engine lubricated, cool engine components, remove engine wear particles and sludge, improve gas mileage (YES, please!), and promote vehicle longevity. If you have a child heading to college, now’s a great time to make sure their oil is changed and their car is ready to roll.

From now on, you’re going to get the best oil change coupons and savings around!

1. Look for “Free Oil Change With Test Drive” offers at car dealerships.

A person on the phone, holding a set of keys and standing in a dealership parking lot.

Dealers run offers like “free oil change with test drive” all the time. Here’s how it works — there’s usually a make and model of car or truck they want you to test drive (sometimes not, though!).

You agree to drive it, and then the dealer will credit you an amount up to about $35 toward an oil change there at the dealership.

It may or may not be enough to cover the cost of an oil change, but it’s still free money for one!

2. Always use oil change coupons.

Before you get an oil change, search for the oil change coupons for your area. Choose where to get your oil changed based on who has the best coupons. Coupons come as either a dollar-off amount (like $7 off an oil change) or as a discounted oil change price (like “Get a $24.99 oil change”).

If one of the above oil change coupons doesn’t get you excited, check out Groupon. Groupon oil change offers vary based on your area. Deals can be up to 50% off, but make sure you look and see how many quarts it includes. Anything over the listed amount will be an extra fee. Here are some offers we’ve seen before:

4. Get a Walmart oil change as low as $22.88.

Pre-Covid, Walmart was the cheapest place to get an oil change. Walmart doesn’t offer any oil change coupons. Walmart has many oil change services, and it can get overwhelming and confusing trying to pick out which one to choose.

If your vehicle only needs five quarts of conventional oil, you can get the Pit Crew oil change for $22.88. A standard oil change is $32.88, and a synthetic oil change is $52.88.

 

5. Does Costco do oil changes?

Nope! Costco may have an auto center, but they don’t perform any oil changes. If you’re a Costco member, you can get 15% off your oil change at participating dealerships.

Visit Costco.com and enter your member number and car make to see which dealership offers this discount.

Granted, oil changes at dealerships tend to be more expensive than they are at Walmart, but some newer cars are so computerized that they might require a dealer to change your oil.

TIP: Look for specials at your dealership too! My dealership offers three oil changes, tire rotations, and car washes for $90. This comes out to $30 per service, which can be cheaper than Jiffy Lube!

 

6. Don’t get your oil changed every 3,000 miles.

Years and years ago, cars needed to get the oil changed every 3,000 miles. But with new car engine technology, it’s not as necessary.

The thing is — your mechanic probably doesn’t want you to know this. They’d be happy to see you (and your money!) every 3,000 miles.

Check your owner’s manual for your car to find out how long you can go. Most newer cars can go at least 7,500 miles.

 

 

7. DIY oil change? Buy motor oil on Amazon or Walmart.

Amazon makes its brand of motor oil, which is similar to brands like Pennzoil, Castor, and Mobil, and it’s slightly cheaper.

 

8. Take advantage of courtesy fluid top-offs.

A person talking to an auto shop employee who is working under the hood of a vehicle.

Many places, like Jiffy Lube, offer courtesy fluid top-offs between oil changes. When you get your oil changed, be sure to ask about these features. I go through windshield wiper fluid like no one’s business, so I take advantage of all the free top-offs.
