Stop by the store (yes, in person) and ask the manager.
Have some goods in your hands and at least look like you're a regular customer.

The store manager has always been happy to tell me what's going on, but I'm in there a lot more than others. It's not that I purchase a lot, but I'm in the store enough and I look just like the medium height, gray headed, slightly balding, old fart. So I seem to be a great customer. ;-) So, do I know when the sale starts at "my" local Petco? B-)

Stocks of tanks are up at Petco's all over the country so it's safe to assume that the sale is probably going to start soon.

When they start, do they usually start on Saturday or Sunday?

It's starting this Sunday from what I heard.

I know a girl who work at petco and when u know ppl its always first hand to you.
I just pre-order 2 40B from my friend she say once the sale start she will grab 2 and pay for them. I just go and pick them up and pay her back later. Usely every petco I go too will end up clean in a couple days so its good to have a eye inside.

Yah i figure the 40B is going to be hard to get, thats what i'm going to be trying for also...so i may end up having to skip a day of work to pick one up or at the very least waking up REALLY early on a sunday..there are 4 stores within 10 miles of me...so i'm definately going to be shopping around

Anyone try to 'profit' off this sale? Say buying 10 55 and 5 40B and trying to sell them for more on craiglist later on?

You could if you want I guess lol, though if I remember the prices at Petland before mine shut down was like a gallon per dollar everyday. Pity, when I came back from college I realized it shut down. It was like that 3 years ago, I just found out they closed this year.

I wouldn't buy and re-sell, especially since you can find used tank deals even under $1/G. Petcos near me have a ton of stock of 40B and 55G after the sales are over where you see it extended. Usually 55G doesn't sell and they don't stock too many 40B like 6 at most.

I don't know why they don't every carry stands for their 40B.

The petland $1/G sale is better cause it goes up to 75!
