Shell Motor Oil Matters/$35 Jiffy Lube Gift Card Review & {Giveaway}!


"April is both National Car Care and National Informed Women Month and a perfect opportunity to get empowered to care for your car! Did you know that in the United States the average age of cars and light trucks on the roads today has reached a record high of 9.4 years? That means it´s more important than ever to take proper care of your vehicle.

With the informative Web site www.MotorOilMatters.org (created by the maker of industry-leading brands Pennzoil and Quaker State) you can easily locate key information about how quality motor oils can help prolong your engine´s life and improve overall efficiency, as well as help answer other questions you may have about motor oil. In addition, the site offers a fun, educational game for you to play called "M.O.M. Knows Best" where you can put your motor mind to the test with an interactive quiz.

Did you know?

 
  • According to a recent survey from the Automotive Service Association, more than 54 percent of customers who take their vehicles for service and repair are women
  • Using a high-quality motor oil in the right grade can help maximize fuel economy
  • Low-quality oils that do not meet industry standards or the vehicle manufacturer´s requirements could cost consumers in the long run by potentially damaging the vehicle´s engine or possibly voiding the manufacturer´s warranty
  • Another reason to look to a high-quality motor oil - like Pennzoil and Quaker State - is that it is designed to meet the demands of today´s engines"

The Shell Motor Oil Matters website helps consumers understand how high quality motor oils can help prolong the life of their vehicles. Did you know that more than 54% of consumers who take their car to a service station are women? I had the wonderful opportunity to take the knowledge I gained from the informative Motor Oil Matters site to Jiffy Lube for a complimentary, high quality oil change.

I went to Jiffy Lube on a Friday and figured the wait time would be long. To my surprise our truck was done with the oil change before my daughter and I were even done with lunch, next door. They even gave me $10 off because they were running a special. The truck was driving much smoother after the oil was changed and I was very pleased!

Thanks so much to Jiffy Lube and Shell Motor Oil Matters for the complimentary oil change! I love their informative website and my favorite part is the "M.O.M. Knows Best" educational game.

*I received a $35 Jiffy Lube Gift Card through My Blog Spark to facilitate my candid and honest review. No other form of compensation was or will be given. All personal views are my own!

Win It!

A misconception would be that oil still needs to be changed though your car may be running smoothly. It gets dirty and gunky.
