Rock Auto has sale on wiper blades

Newsletter arrived today-

Wholesaler Closeout Wiper Blades.
I went to look and ended up buying an assortment of blades--- 19 of them!! $38.47 (includes shipping and discount code).


I only bought was was on closeout.... so youll have to check and see whats listed as a closeout/wholesale

But I stocked up on blades for the Traverse, Trailblazer and Equinox.

For example-- I did not buy DRIVER side blades for the Equinox... (none on closeout).

You'll run out of cars before you use up that stockpile of wiper blades.

Re: Rock Auto has sale on wiper blades

$38 is close to what youll pay if you walk into an auto parts store and get 2 fronts and maayyyybe 1 rear.

Yup, that is what it costs for Anco blades at a small parts store near our home. Anco blades are hard to find in our area, which I prefer. I don't have to pay any frt, but do for 5.5% tax.

Looks like you're opening a parts store, RB. Better watch out - admin might want you to sign up as a forum sponsor. LOL

Re: Rock Auto has sale on wiper blades

It's not always worthwhile to do that. I traded off a bunch of fan belts for an NSU, a Karmann Ghia, and a few models of Toyota when my friend passed away. Also tossed a bunch of carb rebuild kits for the same cars. You're a freak (meant in a pleasant light) if you go through that many wiper blades in the next 5 years or so. Either that, or all the BS from Hollywood is really polluting your atmosphere.

Re: Rock Auto has sale on wiper blades

I do indeed use my front wiper/washer every morning and like a clean sweep--

time to change when it starts to leave small arcs of water behind.

If you are NOT replacing with Anco Contour Blades, you are making a Huge mistake.
The rear with their Aero Vantage. Need I say more?
