Rebate Tips 1. Read your Pep Boys rebate form thoroughly. Each Pep Boys rebate offer is unique, with different date ranges and postmark date requirements. Many rebates require the purchase of multiple products. You must submit all qualifying products listed for a given rebate to be eligible. The best way to make sure you get your rebate is to follow the instructions carefully. If you have any questions, call us at the toll-free number listed on the rebate form or call your local Pep Boys store.
2. Make copies of all of your paperwork. This includes your receipt, rebate form, mailing envelope, and any other items that are needed for validation of your rebate. If for some reason your submission gets lost in the mail, you will need this information to have your rebate reprocessed. It is also a good idea to have this information in front of you if you need to call the customer service phone number listed on your rebate form.
3. Don't wait. Many Pep Boys rebates require your rebate submission to be postmarked within a set number of days from your date of purchase. If you miss this deadline, you will not be able to receive your rebate.
4. Clearly write your name and address on the rebate form. If your handwriting is difficult to read, it will be difficult to enter your information correctly. To ensure fast, accurate processing of your rebate, be sure to print clearly. Remember also that PO boxes are not acceptable addresses for Pep Boys rebates, so be sure to include your street address when you complete your offer form.
5. Watch for your rebate check in the mail.

Road Hazard Warranty
Protect Your Investment What will our Road Hazard Warranty do for you?

While Pep Boys will remount the tire for free, there will be a cost for re-balancing the replacement tire.
Coverage extends to such damage as unrepairable tread punctures damage from potholes, nails, glass and jagged metal which cause cuts, snags, punctures, impact breaks, bruises and rim cuts.

A "Core Charge" is similar to the deposit you might pay for a can or bottle of soda. In many states, to promote recycling, you are charged a deposit when you purchase a can of soda and you receive your deposit back when you return the empty can. Many automotive parts have a Core Charge, or Core Price, that works the same way as a soda can deposit.
Here's how the Core Charge works:
The part you are purchasing contains a component that is recyclable
The Core Charge deposit is charged at the time of purchase
When the recyclable component from your old part is returned to us, the charge is refunded to you
To receive your Core Charge refund, you can do either of the following:
Bring the part to any Pep Boys store along with your receipt or invoice (recommended)
Mail the part back to Pep Boys through the online return process
Please see our Returns Policy for more information on returning a core item.
Core Charges are often mandated by state legislature, and, as such, the actual core charge and taxes on the charge may vary depending on the state in which you buy your part. The Pep Boys core charge presented to you online today with your item is representative of the most common core charge. If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-PEP-BOYS (737-2697) or visit any Pep Boys store.

MasterFlow Cyclone MF-1040 Portable 12 Volt Air Compressor
This pump works great for about 6 months to a year then it freezes up. I have had 3 of them and 2 were defective. I emailed the company for warranty, but received no answer. Too bad, because it worked great...up until it stopped.

Great addition to my emergency road gear
I mainly bought this item because I don't have the budget or room for a regular compressor. I wanted something I could keep in my vehicle for emergency use and to also air up small items like bicycle tires and such. Glad i had it earlier this week. Went to drive away and saw one of my tires on my SUV was almost flat. Plugged in and attached to the valve stem and in less than 5 minutes I was back in service and driving down the road. The included carrying back is a nice touch. Seems solid and works as advertised.

This is an EXCELLENT tire pump!
The first thing I did with it was test it on a totally deflated 245/65/17 sized truck tire. My last tire inflator (different type and model), cost me $55 and could pump this tire up to 35 psi in 14 minutes. This unit pumped it up in 4 1/2 minutes (0-35)!!!! That is with hooking the valve up and turning it on to having it unhooked.
I expected this thing to get really hot due to that it's new and needs to seat in. It was warm at the end but nothing more. After 3 years of use, my old one was still to hot to handle almost from the heat on the hose.
It's a little clunky but it is a serious little portable compressor with a sizable electric motor on it.
If you want to be finicky about it and repack it into the bag it comes with, it may take you a few more minutes however, if you just unhook the air hose (Standard pneumatic air connector, NICE!) and put a velcro cable strap on the power cord to hold it, Toss it in the trunk as is. This bad boy isn't a ton of plastic, nor does it have some stupid light on the front or sides to fail.
My opinion, If you need a flashlight in your car for emergencies, then go buy a flashlight and stick it in the trunk. Don't open the batteries to it until you need it. IF you want a DARN NICE tire inflater that wont burn up when you need it most..... Here ya go!!! This bad boy is it!
Forget spending $1.00 or more at the gas station for the use of their outside courtesy unit! I can do mine as I'm putting gas in the car for free.
