Protection and Dependability for Generations

The moving parts on firearms (actions, bolts, hinges) must be cleaned and lubricated to ensure top performance and long life. Hunters and shooters need their guns to perform when called upon, sometimes after an extended period of storage, after sitting for hours in a wet duck blind or while on a remote hunting trip with few opportunities to clean their gun daily.

New AMSOIL Synthetic Firearm Lubricant and Protectant (FLPBA) effectively lubricates and protects firearms, helping extend life and prevent blockage, jams and wear. New AMSOIL Firearm Cleaner and Protectant (FCPSC) is an aerosol cleaner and protectant that penetrates deep into hard-to-reach components, effectively cleaning residue from all surfaces and safely protecting guns for storage.

See the September AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil Proves Itself Again in Top Three Snowmobile Brands

After a full season of abuse in rental sleds, INTERCEPTOR completely prevented ring sticking, piston scuffing and exhaust-power-valve sticking in Arctic Cat*, Ski-Doo* and Polaris* snowmobiles. At the end of the riding season, we disassembled the sleds and examined parts for deposits, wear and other distress. In all three makes, INTERCEPTOR completely prevented piston ring sticking, piston scuffing and exhaust-power-valve sticking.

AMSOIL Sales Tax Exemption Certificate Management

If you or any of your accounts are tax-exempt, knowing how sales tax exemption certificates work and how AMSOIL manages them will help you and your customers run your businesses more effectively and efficiently.

Dealers and accounts with a state sales tax exemption are required to file a valid sales tax exemption certificate with AMSOIL. Valid exemption certificates must be legible, complete and have a valid state sales tax exemption claimed for the products being purchased. States will not accept incomplete exemption certificates. Some state sales tax exemption certificates expire automatically, while others do not have a specified expiration date. As good practice, AMSOIL automatically invalidates sales tax certificates with no specified expiration after three years. Some states require certificates to be filed annually.

Dealers and accounts receive email notifications at 45, 30, and 15 days prior to certificate expiration. It is important to keep an up-to-date, valid email address on file for tax-exempt accounts. If updated information is not received, the certificate in question will be allowed to expire. Once updated information is received, Dealers and accounts are eligible for a refund of sales tax charged during the lapse. To request a refund, please complete and submit a Sales Tax Adjustment Form (G20) to AMSOIL Account Services within 90 days of product order date.

If you are already registered for sales tax exemption in your state(s) or province(s), but need to file a valid tax exemption certificate with AMSOIL, please complete the Uniform Sales Tax Certificate (G495G495C Can.) or the appropriate state exemption form and submit it to AMSOIL Account Services.

Dealer ID Cards Discontinued

Dealer ID cards were once necessary to help Dealers remember their account numbers and show as proof of current Dealer status. Today, the vast majority of customers and businesses store this type of information electronically, while AMSOIL provides tools in the Dealer Zone that allow Dealers to easily access account numbers and membership statuses of all Dealers and Preferred Customers. Because Dealer ID cards are no longer necessary, we are no longer issuing them to new Dealers. Some Canadian provinces may require Dealers to carry an ID card. For those Dealers, and any Dealers who prefer to carry an ID card, one may be downloaded and printed from the Dealer Zone (Business Tools>Literature>Customizable Literature>Printable Dealer Card).

P.C. Promotion Information

Going forward, Dealer notifications announcing the latest Preferred Customer email promotions will be posted in the Message Center and Dealer Zone only; they will not be sent through email. We strongly encourage Dealers to log into the Dealer Zone daily in order to be aware of the latest P.C. promotions and other important information.

Get Customer Banners, Business Cards and More at the Print Center

The AMSOIL Print Center has everything you need to get connected to new customers and stay in touch with existing clients. It features an extensive, updated selection of professionally produced AMSOIL business cards, ads, banners, handouts, fridge magnets and more that can be customized to fit your needs and coordinate with AMSOIL advertising and marketing efforts. To see what’s new, simply log in to the Dealer Zone and click the Print Center icon.

2016 Direct Jobber Convention

The 2016 AMSOIL Direct Jobber Convention will be held Oct. 6-8, 2016 at the Marriott Waterside Hotel in beautiful Tampa Bay, Fla. The Marriott Waterside is a 5-star hotel with a marina right out the back door. Come sit on the back patio and watch the boats go by as you sip your favorite beverage and visit with other AMSOIL Direct Jobbers and AMSOIL corporate staff. Attend the corporate presentations to learn where AMSOIL is going over the next few years. Take a stroll on the Tampa Riverwalk, also conveniently located just out the back door of the hotel. Be part of the fun as AMSOIL Direct Jobbers (maybe you!) are recognized for reaching higher levels of achievement and simply enjoy the warmth of the Florida sun.

AMSOIL has secured a block of rooms for Direct Jobbers at a competitive rate of $168 per night. Because the hotel is located in downtown Tampa Bay, parking is at a premium. If you fly into Tampa Bay International Airport, taking a taxi to the hotel is advised. The hotel is only nine miles from the airport and estimated one-way taxi fare is $25. Due to limited parking in the area, we recommend staying at the host hotel. If you decide to do some sight-seeing on your own, the street car can pick you up right outside the front door of the hotel and take you to places such as the Tampa Bay History Center, Channelside Bay Plaza (shopping and dining), the Florida Aquarium or Ybor City (described as the French Quarter of Tampa Bay).

If you decide to stay elsewhere and drive to the hotel, parking rates are $24 per day, but for AMSOIL Direct Jobbers staying at the hotel, parking is $12 per day.

If you wish to access the Internet from your room, we have negotiated the price from $12 per day to only $1 per day. For the price, convenience and camaraderie with other AMSOIL Direct Jobbers and AMSOIL corporate staff, you just can’t beat staying at the host hotel in downtown Tampa Bay.



Keep watching for exciting news regarding the Convention’s social events and travel incentives. We look forward to seeing you in Tampa Bay Oct. 6-8 for the 2016 Direct Jobber Convention.
