Shift Savings into High Gear with 5 Automotive Deals from $5

By , dealnews contributor

We depend on our cars, minivans, and SUVs to cart us to work, run our errands, pick the kids up from after-school activities, and provide us with all sorts of gateways to recreation and adventure. And all our motor vehicles would ask us in return (if they could talk) is that we take care of them, and pamper them every once in awhile. That's where these auto deals come in!

  1. Autoglym High Definition Wax Kit
    Vendor: Pep Boys
    Price: $18.30 with free in-store pickup
    Lowest By: $31

    Is It Worth It?: Look what Manny, Moe, and Jack cooked up: a sweet deal on the Autoglym High Definition Wax Kit, which we are dubbing an Editors' Choice. The kits includes applicator pads and a buffing cloth. (You supply the elbow grease.) This wax is designed to protect a vehicle's surface for the equivalent of about 50 washes.

  2. 4-Piece Oil Change Kit
    Vendor: Advance Auto Parts
    Price: $5 in-cart with free in-store pickup

    Is It Worth It?: While this kit is priced at $9.46, it falls to $5 when you add it to your cart. It includes a roll of Scott Towels shop towels, a Rhino Gear 7-quart round drain pan, Flotool multipurpose funnel, and GoJo cherry gel pumice hand cleaner. Thanks to the low price and spiffy hand cleaner, you get to clean up in more ways than one!

  3. Emergency Roadside 29-Piece Tool Kit
    Vendor: Ebestshop4u via eBay
    Price: $14.95 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $8

    Is It Worth It?: Any mechanic will tell you that it pays to be prepared for any roadside emergency. The kit has all the tools you'll need: 7 ft. jumper cables, gloves, flat head and Phillips head screwdrivers, and more.

  4. Advance Auto Parts Coupons
    Discount: Various
    Shipping: From $9 s&h or free shipping on orders of $75 or more (after coupon)

    Is It Worth It?: If you're in the market for a specific car part or have your eye on some cool new floor mats, head over to Advance Auto Parts and cash in on the savings. There are a variety of coupons available for all price points, but most folks have been saving $20 on purchases of $50 or more via coupon code "A123".

  5. Suomy Jet Light Morph Helmet
    Vendor: Motorcycle Superstore
    Price: $59.99 with $6.99 s&h
    Lowest By: $110

    Is It Worth It?: While it's not for driving a car, this mighty motorcycle helmet is stylish — it comes in Yellow/Black (pictured) or White/Black — and smart. It features a clear face shield, easy visor replacement, quick-release chin strap retention system, and more. It's available in sizes XS to XL, although not in all size/color combinations.
