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.

It certainly seems like you don't have gone through the policy. Definitely, how can you miss such an important point? For your information, Petco has maintained its own price match policy were Petco stated that the prices available at Petco’s official website holds for the price match with its in-store prices. So as stated you can price match the online price of Petco Store with the in-store prices. You may like to know more than check the Petco Price Match Policy to save money.

Looks like a lot has changed since December of 2005 when Sarah said that. Good to know the current policy tho

92% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
