When is the next $1 per gallon Petco sale?


I'm planning to get a $20 gallon, but does anyone have an estimate on the next $1 per gallon sale? Thanks.

It's all based on your local Petco. Some will do it twice a year, some will do it 3-4 times a year, some will do it 4+ a year. Last year my local Petco did 3 (Spring, Summer, Fall). There's already been 2 $1/gal sales this year at my local Petco which is amazing! The only way to truly know is through their email newsletter, walking in the store and inquiring, or simply calling them. You gotta watch when they start putting out more 40B and 55g tanks, as you can't really see them stocking it unless you peek inside their storage or happen to be there when the truck comes by. That's usually a good indicator that they're going to have the sale soon.

For me, PetCo is a few miles further out, but PetSmart has 20g's for $32 or so. And while $20 would certainly be cheaper, it's not a lot of money.

The reason we talk a whole lot (seriously, an incredible amount) about the $1/g sales at PetCo is primarily 40g breeders, with a secondary emphasis on 55g's is because it's about a 50% discount (maybe more). For the standard 10-20g tanks, you wouldn't expect to spend a whole lot more than $1/g at normal sales prices.

If you're very thrifty, sure, wait till the sale and go crazy! The same advise goes for buying multiple tanks. But for a single small tank, I'd just go to my nearest chain LFS and grab it, knowing that it's a pretty good price even when not on sale.

^This, and yes if I were you, I would just go to my local Petco and get one. It's not that much money off with the 1$ sale. And the reg price for a 40B and 55G at Petco is 140$, I asked.

Whaaaaat?! I have no clue how much the 55g are, but at my local Petco, the 40B are about $179.99 or at least that's what the tag says. Crazy prices!

Very good. He sent me a picture of the upcoming flyer. I don't know if it's local or national, but it looked like a national flyer.
