Best Pep Boys Black Friday Deals from 2012

Last year, Pep Boys’ crammed a lot of deals into their 4-page Black Friday ad scan. At first glance there appeared to be several amazing deals, but upon closer inspection many of the great prices only applied after mail-in rebates. This was disappointing for two reasons: 1.) Mailing in a rebate is just another annoying task to add to the already packed holiday season to-do list, and 2.) Pep Boys only offered rebates in the form of pre-paid debit cards.

The Pep Boys Visa prepaid debit card was a bigger disappointment than having to remember to send in the rebates. After all, a simple Google calendar reminder can help with the latter. The Pep Boys Visa was particularly disappointing because prepaid cards are notorious for their hidden fees. An additional pain was the fact that you couldn’t avoid the fees by cashing in the money loaded on the card. Despite the fact that Visa cards are commonly accepted, it would have been better to just have the cold, hard cash at your disposal.

So, without further ado, here are the best deals from Nov. 23rd– Nov. 25th, 2012 (the deals after mail-in rebates are marked with asterisks):

  • $3 Duramax 13-pc. wrench set*
  • $10 Great Neck 85-pc. socket set*
  • Free Champion platinum spark plugs (limit 16)*
  • Free Prestone Fuel Injector Cleaner w/purchase of $8 Prestone 50/50 antifreeze
  • Buy 3 installed tires, get the 4th for 1$
  • $8 Penzoil motor oil and Purolator Classic oil filter*
  • $99 choice of Razor E90 (reg. $129.99) OR E100 Wildstyle scooter (reg. $149.99)*
  • $149.99 Shelterlogic 10’x20’ auto shelter (reg. 269.99)*
  • $199 choice between Razor electric dirt bike (reg. $279.99), Betty Scooter (reg. $279.99), or Pocket Rocket (reg. $249.99)*
  • $299 3500-Watt generator (reg. $399.99)*

There are a few coupons and deals from 2012 worth addressing individually. Two exceptional deals only applied to Friday. The first deal was $5 for Mobil synthetic motor oil without a mail-in rebate requirement. The second deal was for $10.99 for All Prostop brake pads. The two coupons, which had to be physically brought in, were:

  • Choice of 50% off installation of shocks and struts OR 20% off of Monroe shocks and struts
  • 20% off of any wheel alignment

Ultimately, the customer must decide whether the deals are worth the hassle. It might be easier to look elsewhere for deals of equal or lesser value, sans rebates.
