Super Buy on Brake Pads & Struts
« on: March 27, 2015, 11:50:52 PM »

Advance Auto Parts has rebates on Monroe or Rancho struts and Wagner Thermo Quiet brake pads. Couple that with online coupon codes and you can get a great buy. Rebates expire 4/1/15.

The part numbers I listed are for my 91 NA. Double check your part numbers.

Wagner Thermo Quiet Pads. Online they list semi-metallic for the front and ceramic for the rear. I'm not sure if that's meant to be or a misprint. You can call your store for other possibilities. You can figure out the final deal. I'll just show you how to get the maximum savings.

Wagner Thermo Quiet, semi-metallic, front
Part # MX318
$30.99 set

Wagner Thermo Quiet, ceramic, rear
Part # PD366
$24.99

Online Coupon Code:
TRT25
$20 off $50 +

Factory rebate in the form of Visa gift card:
$30

Final Price $5.98 + tax
You can't beat that!

**********************

Struts broken up in 3 orders to maximize coupon codes.

Order 1
Monroe front strut

$73.99 x 2 each

Then Factory Rebate: $120

Final Price: $68.97 or if capped at $50 coupon then $99.96
Can't beat 4 struts for that.

Grand Total Strut Assy

One more thing to add... to order a part online and pick up in the store, the item MUST be in the store's inventory.
Simply call the store and ask them to order the stuff. It will be in the next day in most cases. After it arrives ask a store clerk to return the item to their strock. Then you will see the item online in their inventory. Then you can proceed to do your ordering and use your coupon codes.

Most stores I've dealt with most employees know this process. Sometimes newbies don't know how to return to stock. So ask an experienced employee.

The brake pad coupon/rebate price is an awesome deal.

As for order 1, (shocks and struts), the coupon WD512 has a max of $50 according to advance auto's website
http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/o/wd512-150322
The other issue is the monroe rebate, you only get the $120 if you purchase 4 complete quik-strut assemblies.
http://www.monroe.com/en-US/promotions/
The quik-strut assemblies are not available for the Capri. You're just buying regular pairs of shocks and struts which will get you a $60 rebate instead and brings the total up to about $160 for order 1. the new grand total for the 3 orders is 285.88.
 
If you're doing the entire shock and strut assemblys at the best price, go to rockauto and buy
Part # KITSMB75     Rear monroe shock&mount kit(2 shocks,mounts, and boots) for $141.79
Part # 71888    2 front monroe struts for $22.79 each
Part # 902976  2  front monroe strut mounts $22.79 each
Part # 63973   2 front monroe bumper/boots $13.15
The total is $259.25, until you apply the 5% discount and the $60 rebate which will bring the grand total to $186.29+shipping.

Thanks for clarifying that Chris. Reading the details you can get $90 off with the rebate.

You can still break the order up more. You can get all the Advance codes here and then some.

I'm going to jump on the brake pads and put them on the shelf for now.

I forget now but Advance had a better deal when I brought my struts. I had around $160 in the purchase. It seems most like KYB but these struts perform okay on the cheap.

Your right Mitch you do get $90 rebate for 4 struts. That would also bring the rockauto price down to $156.29. It's just to bad they're monroe and not kyb or gabriel.
