Pet Mountain has 3# bags of Acurel economy carbon on sale for $5.99 a bag. I usually buy it from Amazon but right now Amazon is asking $16 a bag. Stock up this is a great price from Pet Mountain. They also have a ton of stuff on sale!

So, you can send a bag my way? :)

I haven't tried pellets before, and the "prewashed" part sounds a bit interesting as well. I'll check out their other stuff too.

Pre washed is not true. I have no idea where they come up with that. But that being said it only takes a rinse under running water and its all good. I'm a long time buyer of it. It works.

After the shipping cost, there's only about fifty cents difference in price. I guess that really depends on how much you're buying..

I purchased 10 bags and saved around $41. Pretty substantial. Amazon price for 10 bags would have been $160. I paid $68 shipping included.
