Makes very little sense to me......if they pay for the oil its free labor...if I pay for the oil its not.

Oh well....I got my first oil change for free thru them, and at 10k im swapping myself to amsoil.
When my 1999 Dodge NEON RT was new AND (big qualifier there) AND the AMSOIL dealer was conveniently close - I used AMSOIL 10w-40. Perfect for California warmer climates. He moved, so I now use ANY Synthetic oil/filter AutoZone has on sale.
On the original engine with consistent synthetic oil changes between 8K and 9K and a good filter. Look here:

All of today's synthetics are perfectly good. AMSOIL though is very good.
