Tire Kingdom Oil Change Ripoff at Boca Greens and Sandalfoot

Tire Kingdom is advertising an oil change and tire rotation for $19.99. Here’s the initial image ad on their website:

The full page with the deal is here: Tire Kingdom $19.99 deal.
Basic – $19.99
Includes quality oil, a new filter and a four tire rotation
Select – $29.99
Our basic oil change plus a DNA Kit analysis to measure the health of all your vehicle’s fluids
Advantage – $39.99
Includes synthetic blend oil
Premier – $60.99
Includes full synthetic oil
I called Tire Kingdom at Boca Greens to confirm they had this deal and make an appointment. “Luis” told me to just come in and ask for him. When I got there Luis told my car (a 2012 Acura MDX) requires synthetic oil, so I would have to have the Premier level oil change for $60.99. That’s triple the cost. I walked out angry.
Then I checked the owners manual. It specifically says conventional motor oil is fine and synthetic is not required. It requires 5W-20 motor oil.
Having had previous experience with the Tire Kingdom at Sandalfoot, I called there next. I mentioned on the phone that I have a 2012 Acura MDX and was told that yes, the $19.99 deal does apply to it.
When I got there I was told that the deal only applies to 5W-30 and 10W-30 motor oil because they have that in bulk, and that they only have 5W-20 in bottles and they had to charge me the $39.99 price for it. On top of that was a $3 oil disposal fee and taxes, for a total of about $45. I can understand the taxes, but the oil disposal should not be an extra charge.
At this point I just wanted to get it done so I went ahead and had it done for the $45. Then I came home to vent about the experience here.
Note the Terms and Conditions from the web page, below:

My oil change did not require synthetic or synthetic blend oil. 5W-20 is available in conventional form, such as Pennzoil, Valvoline,  and Quaker State.
Short story, Tire Kingdom at Boca Greens tried to rip me off. Tire Kingdom at Sandalfoot ripped me off less, but still ripped me off.
Shop carefully West Bocanauts.
