Retail Program Changes Help You Better Serve Your Accounts


Retail accounts play a vital role in AMSOIL businesses. We’ve made some changes to the AMSOIL Retail Program over the past year, including an improved Retail Co-op Program and a new Repair-Shop Website Program, to increase business for you and your retail accounts, and we’ve got even more changes rolling out this month.

New Promotional Kits
Starting in July, we’re updating the merchandising kits with new items to get retail accounts started selling AMSOIL products. The new kits include an introductory letter, a 12”x9” window decal and an AMSOIL mouse pad. Accounts will then have the option to pick one of three free additional items: a two-sided 3’x2’ Aluminum AMSOIL Sign, an 8’x3’ Vinyl AMSOIL Banner or an AMSOIL Retail Merchandising Kit featuring a gondola header, shelf blades and slide-in shelf strips. We’re allowing accounts to choose their own free promotional item so they receive one that best suits their retail outlet. Promoting more AMSOIL branding in their shops will help them attract AMSOIL customers, and we want to help them with that as much as we can.

See the July AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

Build Sales with the New AMSOIL Easy-Pack

The AMSOIL easy-pack is a great ice breaker with the potential to pique the interest of prospective and existing customers. Check out the July AMSOIL Magazine for six ways you can use the latest AMSOIL innovation to get your foot in the door.

A Simple Way to Deliver Advanced Customer Service


Your enhanced reports in the Dealer Zone provide a wealth of information that helps you reach out to customers with personalized messages. You can thank customers for a recent purchase, remind them to renew their account that’s about to expire, encourage them to use their co-op credit, recommend they change their account status to save money and more. The possibilities are endless. Reaching out in this way shows people you value their business and have their best interests in mind.

See the July AMSOIL Magazine for more information on using your enhanced reports.

AMSOIL Oil Filters Updated


To reduce customer confusion, we are eliminating the “Ea®” name from our oil filter lines:

AMSOIL Oil Filters
AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Extended-Life Oil Filters
AMSOIL Bypass Oil Filters
AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil Filters

New artwork for AMSOIL Oil Filters will begin appearing in the fall. We updated our 98.7 percent efficiency claim to 99 percent, and our spin-on filters will now feature easy-grip coating. Filter media, pricing and product codes will remain the same.

See the July AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

Customer Service Department Reorganized


The AMSOIL Customer Service Department has been reorganized to provide increased efficiency and customer service. Employees within the department are no longer dedicated solely to Dealer/P.C. registrations and renewals, account registrations, internet orders, telephone orders or other specialized tasks. All customer service representatives are now cross-trained in all functions, helping shorten on-hold times, reduce the need to leave voicemail messages and speed the processing of administrative tasks. While these changes are intended to be invisible to most customers, Dealers may notice that most customer-service-related calls are now forwarded to the 800-ordering line, and most emails are now forwarded to the [email protected] inbox.

New Canadian Stock Numbers


We are transitioning to new labels for the following products in Canada. Effective immediately, Canadian Dealers, customers and accounts must use the new stock numbers listed below to order these products. The old stock numbers are discontinued in Canada.

New Can. Stock No.: DEOQTC

New Can. Stock No.: ADPQTC

New Can. Stock No.: ADP1GC

New Can. Stock No.: DB50QTC

New Can. Stock No.: ATLTPC

As announced in January, we will be introducing new labels for Canadian products throughout 2019. Newly labeled products will be rolled out as existing inventory in Canada is depleted. Watch the Dealer Zone for continued updates.
