Price and Shipping-Rate Adjustments Effective Oct. 1

We are implementing minimal price and shipping-rate adjustments in the U.S. and Canada effective Oct. 1. Commissions will also be adjusted.

Why are We Adjusting Prices?

All costs continue to rise. Our competitors have all issued up to six price increases to their distributors since the beginning of the year due to the rising costs of additives, base oils, steel, plastics and freight. While we are working hard for you and our customers to keep pricing down, we are forced to implement our third price adjustment of the year to keep up with rising costs. As always, these adjustments are made as minimal as possible and with a sharp eye on our position within the market. Products will increase by an average of 1.5 percent, with some products increasing slightly less and others increasing slightly more.

Accessing Updated Pricing

Updated pricing information is available in the Pricing Lookup in the Dealer and Account Zones. To access pricing effective Oct. 1, select a product type in the menu, then select “Future Pricing.” The AMSOIL Wholesale Price List (G3500, G8500) and catalogs (Factory-Direct [G100, G300], Automotive [G3549, G3550], Powersports & Racing [G3511, G3512], Commercial Program [G3469, G3474], Retail Program [G3520, G3521]) will be available with updated pricing in September. Watch the Dealer Zone for announcements of availability. We will notify your retail and commercial accounts of the price adjustment and include a Wholesale Price List in the September Service Line. We encourage you to follow up with them in person as well.

Shipping Rates

Effective Oct. 1, shipping rates have also been adjusted to reflect increased shipping costs. The minimum purchase threshold for U.S. Dealers and retail/commercial accounts to receive free shipping has increased to $400. The Canadian minimum purchase threshold remains at $450. Flat-rate shipping for orders under $400 U.S./$450 Can. has increased to $13.99 U.S./$14.99 Can. The minimum purchase threshold for U.S. and Canadian P.C.s and catalog customers to receive free shipping remains at $100 U.S./$130 Can., while flat-rate shipping for orders under the threshold has increased to $9.99 U.S./$12.99 Can.
