In a Jiffy! Giveaway!

**Contest is closed…congrats to Melody (lucky #7)****

My husband has been working hard keeping my older Volvo running smooth.  It has been very time consuming the last few weeks.  We really love the car and want to keep it running smooth…and avoid a new car payment too.  I get such a good feeling driving a paid off car.  I guess I am in the norm now (it wasn’t always this way), the average age of cars on the road has reached 9.4.  Wow!  Did you know that there are key things that you can do to ensure that your car last longer?  Check out the site Motor Oil Matters for lots of great tips and helpful information.  You can even take a quiz to see how much you know about car maintenance.  I took it…and apparently do not know much.  But I am learning!

So, in order to give my hubbie a little car maintenance break…I took my car to Jiffy Lube for our latest oil change.  They were fast and very reasonably priced…and my husband was more than pleased!  Having the oil changed in your car is one of the best ways to prolong the life of your vehicle. How do I know this information?  I visited Motor Oil Matters! and Shell Lubricants provided you with the gift card and information through MyBlogSpark

So..lets have a giveaway!  I want to give one reader a $35 giftcard to Jiffy lube…so you can keep your car running in tip top shape!  To enter, comment on this post.  Let me know how old your car is & who changes your oil.  I will pick a winner on Friday the 14th by random number generator…and notify the winner via email.  Good Luck!

Disclosure: Shell Motor Oil and through MyBlogSpark provided me with a Jiffy Lube gift card, as well as the gift card for this prize.  The opinions shared are my own.

  2. Jenny Anderson replied:

    My car need an oil change!

  3. Claire P. replied:

    My car is 6 years old this year – fully paid off yay! I am the one who goes to get my oil changed!

  4. Melissa replied:

    I drive a 99 Honda CRV and my oil has been changed by so many different places I’ve lost count. Last one though was actually the Honda dealership.

  5. Kimberly replied:

    I drove my Subaru for 10+ years always getting the oil changed on time. It ran like a top, now I wish I still had it for my 16 year old son! Now I drive a 2004 Dodge Durango and love love love it. I always get my oil changed by the local guys in town but have no problem going to Jiffy Lube as I took the Super Subbie there many times.

  6. Robin replied:

    I have a 1994 Toyota Corolla that has over 200,000 miles on it…and my father keeps it running for me! I don’t know where I’d be without him (besides changing my own oil)!

  7. Melody replied:

    My Toyota Camry is 11 years old now. I love my baby girl! She still runs great but I have regular maintenance by one of the local shops here. If I am in Atlanta and need something my brother-in-law does it since he is a mechanic.

  8. Kim Johnson replied:

    I have a 2002 Toyota Highlander. I take mine in for regular oil changes.

  9. "Chris" replied:

    I have a 2001 vehicle and drive over 700 miles a week. I change my oil every 3500 miles, religously. If my husband isn’t available I take mine to a local place to have it changed.

  10. Holly replied:

    I have a 2002 Mazda Tribute. I like my hubs to take it locally to get changed. He is really good about it. Every once in a while I take it. They like to ask me too many questions. They show me all these different filters that need to be changed. I never know if I should do it or not. Funny how they never ask DH any of these questions!:)

  11. Penny Baxter replied:

    I have a 2002 Toyota Sequoia – I have always taken mine to Kaufmann Tires but havne’t been able too for months since my husband has been laid off. I know that I don’t need to neglect it, but just can’t spare the cash right now. Praying soon!

  12. mommiesstuff replied:

    My car is a 2003 and no it is not fully paid off. I wish it was, but still making payments on it. We bring our car to the dealership for oil changes.

  13. Laura replied:

    I use to take my Volvo to the dealership but it is such a rip off so we started going to a local Firestone. We like it there but would be glad to use a free giftcard!
    Did anyone win the yogurt giveaway?

    • katyshops replied:

      Yay…a fellow Volvo driver 🙂 Yeah…I emailed the yogurt winner..sorry I got lazy and didn’t announce it.

  14. Samantha replied:

    I have a 2002 Jeep Cherokee. It is paid off and I hope to keep it for a while so I get the oil changed on a regular basis! I usually take it to Big 10 Tire, but have taken it to Jiffy Lube a few times.

  15. Kristi replied:

    I have a 2000 Lexus GS300 and it’s all mine! I take it to Goodyear, but would love a free oil change since I am self-supporting and want to keep my car running smoothly for a long time to come!

  16. Carin Geraci replied:

    My Honda Odyssey mini is 6.5 years old…My hubby usually takes it to the Ed Voyles Honda at lunch (near his office) for an oil change.

  17. Freebies « KatyShops… replied:

    […] forget to enter yesterdays contest for the $35 Jiffy Lube gift card.  Just comment on yesterday’s post to […]

  18. Jennifer replied:

    Would love to win! Mine gets changed wherever I stop that is the fastest and cheapest. 🙂 And it is definitely time. Thanks!

    • Jennifer replied:

      ps…. I forgot that my car is an 11 year old Honda Civic.

  19. Kari C replied:

    My car is 8 years old…VW Jetta. I take my car to any place that has a coupon!

  20. Fern Russell replied:

    My car had its 8th birthday this April and is running fine. It uses synthetic oil so it needs changing much less frequently than regular oil. I will be taking it to the local auto shop for the next oil change because they mailed me a $15 off coupon after they changed a tire for me. After that, if I see a Jiffy Lube special, I’ll try them because there’s one close to where I live. But, I needed my regular dealer service last month so I let them change the oil.

  21. Sheila replied:

    I have a 2001 Volkswagon New Beetle and I take it to the repair shop for the oil changes.

  22. Cindy Peterson replied:

    I have a 7 year old Honda Pilot and I love it!

  23. Debbie replied:

    My car is now 7yrs old. We get our oil changed at different places depending on the sales and specials they are running

  24. Becky replied:

    I have a 1997 Honda Accord and a 1999 Nissan Altima and we take them to where ever we have a coupon to get their oil changed. I wish my husband was more handy with the car.

  25. Yolanda Smith replied:

    Walmart early on a sat morning @ 6:45 to be the first in line.
    I would have no problem going to Jiffy Lube as I won a teacher of the year one thousand dollar reward several years ago in Cincinnati Ohio for Cincinnati public schools.

  26. Chris replied:

    My Nissan Altima is 6 years old and runs great after a great oil change!

  27. Deena replied:

    My Expedition would love an oil change. It is 7 years young and has a lot of life in it. Deena

  28. Wendy replied:

    Love my 2003 RAV-4! My husband takes care of both of our cars, ask him 🙂

  29. Beth replied:

    I have a 2007 Nissan Versa, which I love, but which is taking a beating in the deep south, with the heat and the awful roads! I change the oil wherever is closest to me when I notice it needs to be changed!

  30. Laura replied:

    Oooohhhhh could I use some car-care. My son’s little car is nickel & diming us to death. Time to part it out, and find something NON-foreign & cheap! Pleez pick me!!

  31. Jennifer replied:

    I drive a 4 year old Town and Country, but my father in law drives a 1984 Buick Electra! We have the oil changed at Jiffy Lube or at the dealership if we’re having other work done!
