I picked up some new wiper blades for my car last night. I've needed new wiper blades for a while now, and my safety inspection is coming up so I decided to get it out of the way. It's good to do it now as the bad weather season is started. It's been about two years since I last changed them. I hope these ones can last for a couple of years.
I ended up getting them at the tire and lube express at wal-mart. When you purchase there, they install them for you for free. Sounds good to me. They are a hassle to install if you're not doing it all the time so that's a nice throw in.
I ended up getting two wiper blades that were about $20 each. So if they last two years then $40 for 2 years isn't a bad price. They had cheaper ones there but the better ones don't really cost that much and nicer blades are more likely to last and perform well when the conditions are bad. So it's something you might want to spend a little more on and not get the cheapest option available.
While I was out shopping I was getting something for my nephew who is turning 13. That's pretty much impossible to shop for a teenager. He's a good reader and he likes video games. So it's pretty much cash or gift certificates is all you can do. I went with a chapters gift card. Christmas is looking like straight up cash, or an eb games gift card.
