I can verify that the sale is on. I didn't do anything other than grab a 20L and checkout with my Petco pals number. Total was $20 + tax. I'm in the East Bay by the way.

Watch your mail petco pals members, I got a 10% off your entire purchase coupon and there's no restrictions on it outside of not using in conjunction with any other coupons

Their circular is up on their web page I'd assume is national, $1/gallon sale valid from Dec 26- Jan 19.

No reason why these stores didn't receive the info weeks ahead of time when they got their massive tank shipments...

Print the ad from the website but really shouldn't be necessary.

Of course they knew ahead of time. That doesn't mean they have to leak that info beforehand. I don't know how a cashier would be oblivious to the sale as someone above implied. I'm guessing that it was probably a high school part-timer who didn't work a lot.

I happened to find out about the sale from an employee that I know outside of work who I give cookies to for inside info ;-)

Lol! Secrets traded over cookies!

Oh I wish I had room for a bigger tank. I'd so be buying one today. *sulks*

In the Longmont Colorado area it's confirmed. I picked up a 29 and a 20l and I had gotten the first ones. Almost had to pay 42 and 58 for the tanks, but it was just not entered in the computer yet. Seems to be that the petco's around here are just slow to get the signs up...

Got be 40b yesterday for $40!! Probably going to be going back relatively soon to pick up my 10 gallon for $10 in order to set up a nice little QT for the new tank!

I will say though, the computer system wasnt registering the sale, the manager at the store had to override it.

I picked up a 55g yesterday, it was on regular price when the cashier first scanned it, I got the discounted price after she scanned my PALS card.

2 things: Get a manager involved so that you don't "lose" the next one. Seriously.

You have 5 Petcos within 20 miles of Anaheim. Is there a reason you can't get one from another store?

Good luck - you sure sound like you need some!

Oh guys. I've got good news!
So today I revisited my Petco and there were
only 5 10 gallon tanks, and 2 29 longs left. The manager
said he would call the other stores and there was 1 left
in another store. I went there and picked it up! When I finally
got home, I wasted 2 hours trying to make my 3 wooden poles
flat so that the tank was crooked. My dad and I lifted the tank
a total of 4 times with the water 1/3 filled just to make the tank
stable. It's all worth it, just a little price to pay, bleeding fingers
and glass splinters. I really don't know how the I got the splinters.
LOL

Picked up 2 40 gallon breeders today for $80 at the Raleigh NC Petco. They still have 10's, 20's, 29's and 55's.
