Various accessories and equipment discussed here.

Post Posted: Wed Dec 30, 2015 9:52 am   Petco $1 a gallon sale!

Just got a flyer in the mail and Petco is having their $1 a gallon sale on tanks up to 55 gallon. The flyer does not say how long the sale is. Check with your local petco to see if the sale is also in your area.

Don't see the sale on petco site and closest one to us over 100 miles away.. Guess we won't be able to take advantage of the sale.. It's a great deal if you can get it..

Wish Petsmart had the same deal. But from all the researching I have done on google it appears only Petco has $1 per gallon sale.

It seems like I gave some misinformation awhile back. I read somewhere online that PetSmart did have that sale but I just called my local Petsmart and they confirmed they do not have that sale.

That sucks! In the past, other stores would have matched it. Could not hurt to call your local stores and small businesses.

I don't think they will match when they know the competitive store is over 100 miles away.. but I am gonna go ask at petsmart if they have any sales on tanks at all, just for curiosity.. I mean I see 55 g tanks on CL for $200 price is firm.. blah blah blah.. if I gotta pay that much may as well get a new one that don't have hard water stains..

I know petsmart does have sales on some tanks and sometimes tank stand comboes.
Steve, I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone willing to sell a brand new 55 for $55. But then again I didn't ask petsmart if they price match.

If we had a petco in town they might price match but being its the only major Pet Store here and they know it. I can't believe they will match. They have a sale going on right now.. but what is on sale is only %15 off. Nothing like $1 a gallon sale.. :?

Did they say what brand tanks? I think they alternate between Aqueon and Tetra and the Aqueons are preferred because they have thicker glass (*not confirmed info).

Is there any dates on when the sale started and when it ends? Just in case we decide to drive out of state and get one?
