Default Valvoline deal: Free Mechanix gloves

Buy 5 qts of Valvoline, get a free set of Mechanix gloves.



You'll need the original form, not a copy. I run M1 in my MB and Miata, but have no problems putting valvoline in the other stuff.

The Maxlife synthetic isn't a bad oil.

HA! You must have been reading my mind. I'm getting 1 5qt jug for the exploder and the gloves sent to the house, and another 5 qt jug for the bikes and the gloves sent to work

Curious if anyone went for this offer, and if so if they got their gloves yet.

I got the valvoline, and sent in the form, but am yet to receive gloves. I did get an email from valvoline today though. It was a survey about changing oil.

Yes, in my GSXR, that I've sold. Haven't touched the others.

I always use "car" oil in my bikes. "car" filters too. It's like 1/3 the cost of getting products from the bike shop, and is perfectly fine despite the internet rumours.

I did the rebate a while ago and got my gloves yesterday. They also sent a $5 rebate for the next purchase of 5 quarts.

I got the survey email and then an email about 2 weeks later saying the gloves had shipped out. They came about a week later via usps.
