I like the folks here, hard workers try to buy smart, well I feel the same way except this little event occurred I want to make everyone aware of.
This purchase has nothing to do with this site, this is general info on what bogus practices Amsoil exercises.
I have read and heard so much about Amsoil this and Amsoil that all around the web, that buying anything from them was not even on my mind as turning into a BS situation, but it did.
So I needed the 90 degree swivel for my oil cap on my Dodge Ram Diesel, I am running an oil bypass system. So you know, that teeny tiny 90 degree nipple that goes into the oil cap then attaches to the oil line coming from the filter. It's a BP 242 and it weighs what? an ounce? the size is what? an inch by an inch?
What does this marvelous company send it in? A freakin box that is 10x8x9 packed with paper and the BP242 hidden in a slip of paper.
Oh yeah, here's the beauty of Amsoil, they sell the BP242 for $4.75 the amazing rip-off of the scheme is the packaging at $8.50.
Total bill $14.05 for a $4.75 part.
179% mark-up for the shipping and handling
I will never buy from AMSOIL again, I don't want to hear how amazing they are because they are thieves. I will make it my quest that everyone knows about this transaction for as long as I can and as far as I can
No I didn't contact them and try to make it beeeettttterrrrr and to give them a 2nd chaaaanncccee, if they have to be told that 179% mark-up for shipping, a box big enough for a soccer ball when used for an item the size of a Quarter and that the whole thing could have been done with a padded envelope that costs a buck then that says it all.
Please see included pics for your viewing pleasure, the 16.9 oz water bottle is for size reference...Enjoy
