AMSOIL Dealership Upgrades: Investing in Your Success

Providing Dealers with the tools and resources needed to build their businesses has always been a top priority for AMSOIL. The upgrades to AMSOIL Dealerships keep the spotlight on Dealers from the day they register through the life of their businesses. New AMSOIL Dealers will now receive an upgraded Dealer Kit, complete with new literature, product samples and more. All content in AU Online, as well as the Premium Dealer Zone, is now available to new and existing Dealers at no additional charge.

As an extra incentive to take action, new Dealers will receive a 10 percent rebate on their first order if it is placed within the first 30 days of their registration.

To help offset the cost of these improvements, Dealer fees will receive the following adjustments (taxes not included):

Registrations:   U.S.                 Can.
One Year:         $49.95*             $64.95**

Renewals:        U.S.                  Can.
One Year:         $49.95*             $64.95**
Auto Renew      $40.00*             $50.00**
(One Year)
Five Years:       $200.00*           $250.00**

*With direct deposit or a reloadable Visa card.
**With direct deposit.

The six-month Dealership option is no longer available. At registration, new U.S. Dealers can choose direct deposit or the new option, a reloadable Visa card. Unfortunately, reloadable Visa cards are not an option in Canada. Paper checks will not be presented as an option. Existing Dealers who wish to continue receiving paper checks will be charged an additional $10 annually ($59.95 [$74.95 Can.]) for a one-year renewal, $49.95 [$64.95 Can.] with auto-renew or $250 [$325 Can.] for a five-year renewal).

Renewal Promotion
Starting Aug. 1, a one-year promotion will allow existing Dealers who request a reloadable Visa card or enroll in direct deposit to renew for $30 ($45 Can.) one more time. Dealers currently enrolled in direct deposit are also eligible.

See the August AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

Smashing the Industry Standard

A New Level of Protection and Performance Coming this Fall
The lubrication industry is rife with challenges, and the passenger car motor oil (PCMO) segment of the industry is no exception. Evolving engine technologies and tightening regulations drive new specifications, pushing motor oil companies to update their formulations to meet the latest demands. AMSOIL has once again cleared the path and found the most innovative solutions.

After months of vigorous testing, we’ve produced new Signature Series, XL and OE formulations that far surpass the latest standards and add another level of performance and protection to an already solid foundation.

New Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil Formulation Available Early in Some Package Sizes
Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil sales have outpaced forecasting, so some package sizes of the new Signature Series formulation will arrive in distribution centers ahead of the previously announced release date of September. This is a rolling change, so each SKU will change over as the old formulation is depleted.

See the August AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

Reformulated for Even Better Performance

AMSOIL DOMINATOR® Synthetic Racing Grease has been updated with new chemistry, including a new calcium-sulfonate-complex thickener, that provides even better protection and performance in high-speed, high-temperature, heavy-load conditions. It is ideal for bearings and chassis components found in racing applications operated on snow, dirt, water and track.

Formulation Change? Yes
Compatible with Previous Formula? Yes
New Stock No.? No
Pricing Change? No

The new DOMINATOR Synthetic Racing Grease formulation will become available as current inventory is depleted.

See the August AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

ALTRUM Supplements Stay Potent on the Shelf

Sometimes it’s hard to know if the supplements you paid good money for really are as effective as they can be. ALTRUM supplements have always provided customers with the highest quality ingredients available.

With only a couple exceptions, ALTRUM products have a three-year shelf-life from the manufacture date. The exceptions are Ultra Probiotics and Ultra Daily Enzymes, which have a two-year shelf-life.

FDA regulations for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) require dietary supplement labels display a “manufacture date.” You can find the manufacture date stamped on the back of ALTRUM labels.

Each batch of ALTRUM products is rigorously tested to verify quality and potency. ALTRUM nutritional supplements should be stored in a cool, dry place out of sunlight and with the lids closed.
