Running around a million different places to get last minute holiday gifts one way you may be putting more miles on your vehicle than you ever expected. The Automotive Care Center at Walmart is a one-stop shop for Fall and holiday car maintenance, AND holiday gift shopping! Take the headache out of having to shop at multiple places for everyone this year, or making an oil change an extra stop; Just head to your local Walmart, drop off your car, and shop until your car is ready. I know I could mark off quite a few people on my holiday shopping list in the time it takes to get an oil change. 

The employees at Walmart were so nice and helpful when I came in for an oil change (and some holiday shopping, too). They suggested the Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic Oil Change, which is on Rollback ($49.88 Rollback to $44.88) through December 27, 2016. Luckily I am set for the fall and winter now, thanks to these guys.

If you're one of the many people who travel a lot more around the holidays, now is a great time to show your car a little bit of love and go for the best oil change that money can buy for a higher mile vehicle! 

With the weather starting to get a bit wet and {almost} freezing at night, it's so important to make sure your car is running at full capacity. These full synthetic oil changes last a larger amount of miles than a non-full-synthetic, making that one less worry. 

Luckily for those of you who live in the southeast, like Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee can also benefit from these Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic Oil Changes at Walmart's Automotive Care Center.

I put together a gift box for my dad and one for my brother, who both love their cars. I added in some Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic Oil (because they both have higher mileage vehicles). I also added in some car cleaning wipes, some cloth cleaning wipes, and just to be festive, a cute car tree air freshener. I also grabbed some holiday ribbon, bows, and tissue paper from Walmart while my oil was being changed. They have just about everything you need for the holidays and beyond!

No matter your engine's age, a synthetic oil change / oil is the way to go. Especially if you're getting close to the 100,000 mile mark. We passed that a while back, and enjoyed every mile of it! 

Getting your car ready for longer trips is also extremely important for holiday travels. If you get a head start on winter car maintenance, then you won't have to add an oil change to the long list of things on the last minute to-do list right before the holidays.
