      Thanks for the heads up for this good deal. But buyer beware! If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, selecting free shipping puts you not only into a free 30 day Prime membership, but auto bills your credit card monthly after said 30 days. You may not evn know this is happening. To check for sure, view this youtube:

      https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TE4RGBj_tao

      You can still get the oil with free 2 day shipping within your 30 trial. But make sure you don’t get dumped into a monthly Prime fee unknowingly! You have to navigate thru several screens to opt out of autopay.

        Thank you, Mike.
        The video that you linked to explains how to get the free shipping, then cancel your Prime membership.
        Very helpful.

      I saw the same thing this past weekend, but read there were restrictions with shipping during the checkout process. Tried to find out what the restrictions were, but was not able to find an answer. I added another VR1 with a much higher price and it was clear to go at the end of the checkout, so I backed out thinking there was an issue with the low price with the first. I am not a prime member, so was that the restriction?

        Thanks for the comments.

        I just did a practice order for a case, then deleted it.
        You are correct, when you order with free-shipping, they automatically enroll you in the Prime membership.

        It is kind of insidious of Amazon- if you don't read carefully.
        The wording does read that you can cancel the Prime membership at any time.

        The youtube video that Mike K linked to, in post #3 above, explains how to get the free shipping and then cancel your Prime membership before you get charged the $99. yearly fee.

          Make certain you get this confirmation email from Amazon Prime when you opt out:

          “We are confirming that you have turned off your auto-renew setting. Your Prime membership will not continue and you will lose access to your Prime benefits at the end of your membership period.

          If you would like to continue to enjoy access to Amazon Prime, click the button below to continue your membership.”

            Although I didn't complete an order, just because I selected the oil to see what would happen Amazon enrolled me in the Prime Membership.

            I just had to go through the Cancel process that is explained in the video that Mike K linked to.

            What a hassle! They were going to start charging my credit card for $12.99 per month after 30 days.

                Yes, that's exactly why I posted in the first place.
                VR1 is no longer available locally & last time I saw it, price was over $8./quart.
                Thanks for the feedback, Jeremy.

                I'm not a prime member. Just opted for the free slower shipping.....which says it will arrive between 3/12 & 3/15.

                        Wonder if it is because of high shipping costs, or the oil formulation, or...what?
                        I know when I ship from PA to CA the shipping cost is about 30% higher than mid-west cost.
                        The shipping might cost more than the oil costs Amazon.
