New Options, New Supplier and Reduced Pricing for AMSOIL Vehicle Graphics


(Click to enlarge)


We’ve recently partnered with a new vehicle graphics supplier, Turbo Images. Turbo provides high-quality vinyl graphics at much lower cost. We’ve also introduced a new introductory-level option with fewer graphic components to allow Dealers to take advantage of this program with less expense. Both kits are designed to apply to full-size pickups, but will also work with other vehicle types in some cases. In others, Turbo can develop a version that will work, but the cost for one-off versions will be higher.

The ordering process has also changed. Simply download the form from the Marketing Your Business section of the Dealer Zone (Marketing Your Business>Advertising), enter the necessary information and follow the instructions at the bottom of the form. The customer-service team at Turbo will take it from there, ensuring all the information is accurate and helping arrange installation.

See the February AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

Protect Yourself Against Email Scams


Email scam attempts have become increasingly frequent and sophisticated, and some targeting AMSOIL Dealers are designed to fool you into believing they were sent by an AMSOIL employee. It is important to be cautious of emails that seem out of the ordinary or don’t fit the mold of our usual communications. To protect yourself from scams, ask yourself the following questions and follow these tips:

Do you know the sender? Is the email address correct?
All legitimate communications from AMSOIL corporate are sent from an @amsoil.com email address, but be wary of spoofing attempts. Even if the name and email address in the “from” box appear legitimate, hover your cursor over the email address. If the pop-up balloon reflects a different email address, the email is NOT from AMSOIL INC. and is likely an attempt to steal personal information. Do not reply to the email or click any embedded links. Simply delete it.

Are you expecting an email of the particular subject matter? Is it consistent with your relationship to the sender?
Some email scam attempts may ask you to wire funds or something else out of the ordinary. This should automatically trigger a red flag. If something seems suspicious, trust your instincts. When in doubt, call the sender and ask him or her about the email before you reply or follow an embedded link.

Updated Labels for Shock Therapy® Suspension Fluid


Shock Therapy Suspension Fluid now features updated labels and packaging. Shock Therapy Medium #10 with updated labels is already available in a handful of distribution centers, while Shock Therapy Light #5 featuring updated labels will become available this spring as current inventory is depleted. Formulations and pricing remain unchanged. Each formulation also preserves its original color (Light #5 = green; Medium #10 = blue) to help Dealers and customers differentiate between the two. In addition, we’ve introduced an online cross-reference to aid in product recommendations. It’s available at www.amsoil.com/shockfluidcrossreference.
