Petco $/gal sale

Just in case you missed it, Petco is having their $/gal sale through Jan 8.

Quote:
Offer includes 10, 15, 20H, 20, 29, 40, 55 gallon black rim rectangular tanks. While supply lasts. Offer available in store only with Petco PALS card from 1/2/11 - 1/8/11. Assortment varies by store, see Associate for details.
Good way to get one of the desirable 40 gal "Breeder" tanks.

I got a 20g high yesterday for only $20!





This is really the only time I shop at petco. Can't stand going in there any other time.

Went yesterday, out of 40b... Called today, and they don't know if the truck has any. Goign in around 7, hoping to replace the 40b for my turtle's winter tank. Shattered it a few months ago.

I have a handfull of extra tanks already, but I think I could use a few more. Just incase a rack decides to build it self come spring.

Just picked up a 40 breeder at a Petco in Marietta, Ga. They still have 7 more 40B's in stock and several of each other kind. I believe they only have one 55 gallon left, however.


Address:

50 Ernest Barrett Parkway
Marietta, Georgia 30060

On a side note, I was confused as to why they charged me tax on the retail value and then took the discount. Shouldn't I have paid tax on the discounted price?

I had to go to two petcos to find one that had 20 gallon highs but am damn glad I found one for that price.

Out of curiousity, why is there a 20g high, a 20g long but no just 20g?

Really? That really does stink. Maybe is there another one near by or a petsmart you can get to match the prices for you?

It's a chain. I'd complain to corporate.

And the 20-L are part of the sale too. I got two.

Everybody keeps talking about 40g breeders so I had to look it up. Do people like it cuz it has more depth than the other tanks in that size range?
