Preferred Customer Program Adds Horsepower

The AMSOIL Preferred Customer Program has been souped up – and that’s great news for our family of thrill-seekers, racers and gearheads. Starting in November, Preferred Customers will enjoy more ways to save on the products they trust to protect their vehicles and equipment. And you will gain a stronger tool to grow your revenue stream.

Some Things Never Change

The existing program’s top perks are staying put. Preferred Customers will continue to enjoy up to 25% off every order and free shipping on orders of $100 ($130 Can.) or more. In addition, Preferred Customers will still receive exclusive promotional offers throughout the year and the quarterly AMSOIL Magazine with the latest product details, technical information and complete product catalog. The low membership fee is also staying the same. A full year’s membership is still only $20 ($30 Can.), and new Preferred Customers can start with a six-month trial membership for just $10 ($15 Can.).

What’s New?

Going forward, Preferred Customers will receive a $5 voucher every time they spend $100 with us. Members will also receive a $5 birthday gift to spend on their next order or membership renewal. And, if they spend $500 or more in a year, their membership renewal will be on us. Preferred Customers will be able to track their order history and progress toward free membership renewal through their personal and secure online My Rewards page.

See the October AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

Tips for Grabbing a Prospect’s Attention

The digital world has shortened our collective attention span. Most people have become desensitized to prepackaged marketing pitches. If you launch into what sounds like a scripted sales pitch, their eyes will glaze over.

When attempting to pique someone’s curiosity about AMSOIL products or registering as a Dealer, give yourself no more than 10 seconds. Provide enough detail to provoke follow-up questions. Your goal is a conversation, not a monologue.

See the October AMSOIL Magazine for guidelines on capturing a prospect’s attention.

The Bar for Motor Oil Performance Has Been Raised. Just Not to Our Standards.

GM* Dexos1™ Gen 3 is the next-generation motor oil specification designed to address the challenges today’s smaller, higher-powered engines present.

Dexos1 Gen 3 highlights

• Updated performance standard for deposit and sludge control

• Revised stochastic pre-ignition (SPI) test

• Improved fuel economy

• Backward compatible with previous GM specifications

GM set a mandatory transition date of Sept. 1, 2022 to meet the new specification. AMSOIL Signature Series, XL and OE Synthetic Motor Oils already outperform it.

Orders for Long-Term Backordered Filters Canceled

Supply-chain issues are creating significant challenges for manufacturers in all industries, including AMSOIL. All manufacturing components, including steel, chemicals and even drivers to deliver raw materials and finished goods, are in short supply. As a result, the filters listed below have been placed on backorder for an extended period:

AMSOIL Oil and Motorcycle Oil Filters

EAOM103

EAOM103C

EAOM135C

EAO52

EAO55

EAO80

EAO98

EA15K01

EA15K13

EA15K20


WIX Filters

49490

57936

 

MANN Filters

MW75

C1343

 

Donaldson Filters

P621023

P554408

In a few cases, we are unsure when regular supply will resume. Therefore, we are canceling those backordered items. We encourage you to continue checking AMSOIL.com (AMSOIL.ca in Canada) for availability. Any in-stock items will ship or have shipped as usual. All Dealers, customers and accounts affected will be notified by email, and no one will be charged for those canceled items.

Going forward, backordered items will be identified online and we will not accept orders for products that are unavailable. The majority of AMSOIL products are available as normal and we expect that to continue; despite our best efforts, however, supplies of raw materials for grease, aerosols and filters continue to pose challenges and likely will for a few more months.

Thank you for understanding; we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
