Petco Clearance Sale SCORE!!
Petco is having a really nice sale on discontinued merchandise. I'm sorry to see a few items leaving- as they had decent local pricing on substrate in particular.

I was so excited I thought I'd show off a bit, and encourage others to go out and stock up! Here's some items I picked up, for next to NOTHING.
  • Caribsea Eco-Complete 20#. Regular price / Clearance price: $19: $1.50
  • All Glass Aquarium standard T8 14w, 8000k bulb: $11.99 / $2.00
  • Coralife 24w T5 HO Colormax: $19.99 / $4.00
  • Aquatic Gardens 15w incandescent bulbs, 2pk (the long skinny ineffective bulbs) $3.99 / $0.70 (These make great night-light bulbs, or soft ambient lighting for floorlamps
  • Aquaeon 36" full, deluxe hood $51.00 / $5.00
Here's the really fun part of the past few days shopping the superstores. . . My wife know's I"m looking for a powerhead / additional flow pump. She found one on a clearance endcap, and showed it toe me. It was not a brand for which I was looking, but I looked at it anyway, as it was only $15.00, for a pretty high flowing unit.

Once home, I open the box and realize I"m missing some parts. I keep looking, and realize the pump does not look like the pictures. Then I realize I'm holding a Marineland Penguin 550, with prefilter kit, some poor soul put in the wrong box!! This is a $50 item!

Yaay!! :) :)

I hate how it's petsmart that is closer to my house. Is this a nationwide petco sale?

I just stopped by mine and there was nothing on sale, just a biocube stand which was 30 bucks down from 130 but it was beaten like a punchbag... lol I guess yours is having a local sale.

Petco clearnace are usually YMMV, i doubt you will find those prices in other Petcos

I'm not sure how it works with Petco- I didn't ask the manager. I did go to another location, but they only had a very small section of items clearanced-out. I really didn't see anything that wouldn't involve another project- but I did get a couple of T5 HO bulbs for $4 each... someday I'll be building a T5 HO light now :)

I went to another Petco, and picked up a Melafix for $0.70, Seachem Neutral REgulator $0.70. I saw the Hagen CO2 System thing for $3.00, but I do DIY so I did not get that.

It's on the small rack/table thingy near the front/cashier.
