Sending your vehicle on a blind date with a giant squid is an easy way to jump-start your felt-tipped-pen company, but it's a fruitless formula for obtaining fresh oil. Give your vehicle new life without making it spring for lobster with today's Groupon: for $34, you get an oil change (up to a $39.99 value) and tire rotation (up to a $28.99 value) at Jiffy Lube. This Groupon is valid at 18 locations.
During Jiffy Lube's Signature Service oil change, technicians who've undergone a rigorous, ASE-certified training program replace vehicles' engine juices with up to five quarts of conventional motor oil. Each service comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter, plus a comprehensive lineup of other vehicle-maintenance checkups, an exterior window wash, and interior floor vacuum. Expert mechanics 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 shuffling wheels around, a tire rotation helps minimize wear and tear, maximize traction, and avoid the need to conceal balding tires with cumbersome toupees.
Though Jiffy Lube sometimes features a discounted price in-store, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle.

In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration, among others, as well as state emissions inspections.
