Sweet thanks for this...I'm trying to decrease my spending but I've been reading planted tank for the last few hrs and so now I really want another tank + some new shrimp (CRS / Bees / etc.) if I can find them for less than like $10/each. This will clearly help the addiction!

I'd rather pay some more $$$ thank shopping at Petsmart or any of the other places selling abominations like this: http://www.petsmart.com/graphics/pro...-3763471dt.jpg

I'm aware that some people do not have any alternatives to shopping at chain stores, but those who do I urge to avoid them like the devil.

They have some of the best prices on high end filters. I have purchased most of my Eheims from petsmart and saved alot of money. If you have if you would rather throw your money away because they sell something you disagree with, I can understand that. But I will buy my stuff from the people that will give me the best price.

I respect your opinion, but unfortunately, those offering the best prices usually make compromises in terms of integrity.

Is supporting a good cause money thrown away? I don't know. I'm not rich, but $20 or even $50 more for a filter is a ridiculously small amount, given how much money I spend on things that are not important every day. A filter you buy once every couple years, a $3.50 latte every day...

Yeah well, I don't buy the $3.50 lattes, either. Petsmart doesn't get my business when it comes to livestock, but they get quite a bit of my business when it comes to dry goods.

Looking through Petsmart's site, the prices aren't that great, but that's an amazing coupon. Free shipping on $25 orders? How often do you hear that in this hobby?

I have had nothing but good experiences with Petsmarts customer service. They have, the two times I contacted them, done everything they could to "make it right".

Granted, I only buy from them when they offer "x amount off" or free shipping.

basically this would exclude liquids, tanks, stands, lights, anything fragile or that might need special packing.

not the best coupon, but its a bit of a help. that being said, I prefer to spend my money elsewhere.

+1.

I buy a ton of dry goods from PetSmart, especially with their price match policy. I've never been able to get them to pricematch other sites, but even their online prices are pretty good. I just drive there (short trip) with my printout and save on shipping.

With that said, I think I need to buy the 2.2 pound bag of algae wafers for my shrimp.

Thanks.

I managed a Petsmart for six years and I still shop there alot. They treat their employees like crap but their policies on their animals are very good. There might be some bad stores out there but that would be a staffing issue. The corperate policies are enforced very well, and I never saw any neglect, abuse, etc.

They might sell some crapy products but the employees are suppose to recommend better products. But as you all know some people are gonna buy what they are gonna buy and nobody can tell them any different. And of course they are a business and the point of that is to make money.

And as for the prices I think the are very competitive. I would suggest printing of the items online and taking the prints into the store they will match their own internet prices.

And if you want to know I quit because my boss was the DEVIL with a tan and painted finger nails.

Just my $.02

^ LOL - greatest response ever


Remember it's retail, they have to make money. If everyone stops buying the stuff like that lava lamp for bettas, they will stop selling it. I have bought many fish from my Petsmart (not many local shops are better) and have had very healthy fish. I've even bought Ottos from there with great results.
