Does Petco have their $1/gallon tank sale annually?
 
I'm just curious if Petco has their $1 per gallon tank sale annually or was it just a 1 time thing? The reason is I'm not sure if I want to keep one of my tanks and am thinking of selling it. But if I do need one, I may just buy it again if they have another $1 per gallon tank sale again.

I was just at my local petco and they are having $1 per gallon sale THIS weekend, not sure if it is nationwide though. 20% off accessories too.

Its a bi annual thing IIRC. and most all stores honor the sale. however last time thru I noticed that none of my local stores bothered to get any decent tanks in stock leading up to the sale. So all that was avalible were a few standard 50 gallons and small tanks. Also the sale only includes tanks 55gal or smaller. Tho that does mean that their expensive 54gal corner tank is included in this sale, Most of the stores don't carry that one in stock. As well I think the bowfronts are excluded from the sale at any size and of course 10gal and under are also excluded. since the 10 gals are normally priced at around 11 bucks anyways so thats not such a big deal.
Stands on the other hand are expected to be jacked up in price to make up for the losses on the tanks.

I specifically asked if the price applied to the 75g and 120g they had in stock, they said yes. I hope they aren't planning on weaseling out, bc. I am buying the 75g tomorrow!

Was this info from in the store or did you hear this from someone on the inside?

Don't take their word for it. Last sale I got them to let me take a peek at the list of all the tanks that the sale applied to. the cap was at 55gal. They used to do the sale on the bigger tanks (from what an ex employee told me) but I guess they were loosin too much on the big ones. So they revised the sale and limited the tank size. You might wanna double check and ask to see the sale sheet before getting your hopes up and expect to take home a big tank. If they removed the cap this time around sweet. But again don't expect them to stock up on big tanks. Only stock on hand.

PetCo is a bit sneaky also. I remember a few days before, I saw a 40 gallon breeder. I called the day of the sale and said they did not have any 40 gallon breeders. A few days after the sale, I stopped by to pick up some other stuff, I saw the 40 gallon breeder there. So I'm assuming, they hide some of their unique tanks until after the sale. I was thinking of going there a week before their sale starts and buy a unique sized tank at regular cost, then come back again during the sale and ask for a refund of the balance from the sale, which I'm sure they will do. It's a pain, but it's more of a pain driving around stores looking for unique sized tanks, when I know the local one has it in stock.

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.

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 02-10-2007 02:26 PM

doesn't apply to anything over 75g I think.

epicfish 08-12-2007 07:26 AM

bump. Anyone heard anything about another sale sometime soon? =p

Haeun 08-12-2007 07:35 AM

Yea, I need a new 55 or 75 gallon tank...

epicfish 08-12-2007 08:03 AM
