Tried a jug of this in an R18 Civic before, made the engine instantly louder. Changed the oil early after ~5K with PP and it was back to normal. You get what you pay for IMO.
This stuff is regularly $47, with that logic it would be better for my car at full price?

I've had zero issues with this on a Mazda3 and Toyota Rav4. But each engine is different. I don't doubt your experience as my Rav4's engine got a bit noisy with chevron motor oil. My lifter valves (V6) were a bit noisier as the chevron 5w30 was more a consistency of 5w20. Still a good oil but eventually changed it to a different brand. Settled on Valvoline line of oils and it's worked out well. On the Mazda3, that was a different story. Used all sorts of regular oil but eventually stuck with the motorcraft 5w20 as it was a synthetic blend and after draining the consistency isn't near as thick. Regular dino oil got really thick on that Mazda no matter the brand. It's not really the price that is the determining factor in oils. Many oils are just rebranded from Mobil 1, Shell, Conoco-Philips. What's different are the additives and consistencies of the oil. Oil from NAPA and Walmart's own Supertech oil are good quality oils are lower price points.

I was in Walmart in Surrey past week and it was still $26.88.
Agreed. I bought 10 jugs of this last week at $26.88. It definitely wasn't $12.88. I got the price adjusted to $19.88 on Friday. Definitely the best deal I have seen on a full synthetic. They are clearing these out because they are the old 4.73L packaging. The new jugs are 5.0L.

Thanks.
Got this for a 97 Camry.
Camry does not care what kind of oil. Synthetic, conventional, all the same...

I got this instead as Partsource had the $25 coupon for 75 or more purchase plus they had additional 10% off entire purchase. Mobil 1 @ $25.99 x 3 - $25 coupon.

Great deal and I have no reservations to use this in my twin turbo engine.
Don't be stuck to any particular brand; buy them at the lowest price.

It's not clearance. They've been alternating between 4.73l and 5l jugs for years. They'll often bring in a different jug size for sales.

You are right, I found my receipt. I bought it on November 9, and it was on sale for $12.

Nice! You should have posted that. It is a killer deal. It is even cheaper than conventional oil.
