Craig Oh they do have a a deal now for tanks. If you buy the stand for a 55 gallon tank you get the tank free. But the stand is like $179 sooo....

Craig I work there and even I bought two 40 breeders without anything else because they were $40 instead of $99 lol.

Craig I work for Petco and I am pretty sure unless something changes they will never do this again. They just recently had another one and it was for 29 gallon tanks and under.

This is how they saw this sale the first couple times around:

Customer comes in sees the great tank deal and gets the stand and filter and everything else as well and they make a profit.

Great idea from their pov..

This is how it actually went:

"Holy bleep Petco is having a huge sale! I'm going to just buy a couple tanks at this great deal and not their overpriced stands and products!" lol

needless to say they lost a ton of money and re-thought it on this last sale and I doubt it will go back.

epicfish Off another forum:
-that's wierd, the petco here sells 30gallon cubes, not sure if they are oceanic though
-also has 30g oceanic cubes.
08-12-2007 08:07 AM

08-12-2007 08:03 AM

08-12-2007 07:35 AM
Haeun Yea, I need a new 55 or 75 gallon tank...
08-12-2007 07:26 AM
epicfish bump. Anyone heard anything about another sale sometime soon? =p
02-10-2007 02:26 PM
macclellan doesn't apply to anything over 75g I think.

aquarium boy does this count for all petco's? i live down here in chattanooga and looking around for a 75-120 gallon tank but cant find any for less than 600$
even on CL. i have two around my area that i can check out one of which i know carrys 120 and 150 gallon tanks so i'll see tomorow or sunday.

macclellan well, I asked an employee about the price on a 75g. He said "wait till the weekend, everything $1 a gallon." Maybe they are deceptive, but I'll only say that after they deny me the tank tomorrow. I saw at least 3 75g tanks in stock and a 120. I'd be surprised if they were all gone. Aquaria is not a very big hobby here down in tenn-uh-see.
