Though sending your vehicle on a blind date with a giant squid is an easy way to jump-start your felt-tipped-pen company, it remains a fruitless formula for obtaining fresh oil. Give your vehicle new life without making it spring for lobster by nabbing today's Groupon: for $35, you get one Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil-change package at Jiffy Lube (a $70.97 value). This Groupon is valid at 15 locations. Each package includes the following:
- An oil change with up to 5 quarts of oil and an oil filter (a $43.99 value)
- A tire rotation (a $19.99 value)
- A Rain-X window treatment (a $6.99 value)
The Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change handles more than just the replacement of vehicles' engine juices with up to 5 quarts of conventional motor oil. Each service comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter and a comprehensive lineup of other vehicle-maintenance checkups, an exterior window wash, and interior floor vacuum. Trained technicians entreat cars to say "ahh" before quenching automotive thirst with top offs of transmission, differential, transfer-case, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids. A detailed inspection enforces the well-behaved manners of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belt, wiper blades, and exterior lights. By evenly distributing the weight across each tire, a fresh tire rotation helps minimize wear and tear, maximize traction, and avoid the need to conceal balding tires with cumbersome toupees. A Rain-X Original glass treatment puts the finishing touch on the car checkup and helps drivers achieve visibility while driving through rain, sleet, or snow.
Though Jiffy Lube sometimes features a discounted price in-store or online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
