Print this page out and take it to petsmart. I don't know how much it is where you are, but this saves me about 9.00 a bag.

Petsmart will price match an online ad? Wow, thats pretty amazing since alot of online prices are way cheaper than any store price. Does this work on anything they sell? Or do they just pricematch from there online store?

Petco doesn't pricematch online prices, but they'll pricematch store prices.

I am not sure. I am relatively sure they will price match anything. It probably depends on who you get as your checker.

Rumford Pet Center / Something Fishy, Inc. in East Providence, R.I. sells Flourite for $19.99 per 20# bag. I bought 2 bags for my setup last week. I need to find one more bag of Dark to finish my scape. I'll be going there today.

$19.99 for Flourite in Petsmart in Virginia as well. Even if online pricing is cheaper, any savings will be absorbed by high shipping charges. $20.00 minus shipping charges isn't bad.

Now if the store - price matches online stores, that would be really cool.

It's a 20 pound bag, my bad. I don't think they will price match on-line ads, most don't.
