Due to the overwhelming nature of these Dollar Per Gallon sale events that Petco have been putting together, I have decided that it would be smart to condense all of the possible dates into one section for a future reference on when they may appear on. Although many other retailers have adopted such a sale (they may call it something else), this is when nationwide all Petco stores have this sale going on. Normally during the middle of this sale they will have an aquatic event, where many of their fish, plant, and decorations will also go on a massive discount for a period of days.
Currently the only tank sizes that are being sold during this event for the sales price include the 10 gallon, 20 gallon, 29 gallon, 40 gallon breeder, or 55 gallon tanks. In some markets and select stores the 75 gallon will be included in this event, however I highly recommend calling your local stores and seeing which ones carry it in the sale since a vast majority currently do not. In the past, these sales were supplied by Tetra, however due to customer complaints these sales moved over back to Aqueon (who was the original supplier when Petco had this sale event idea). These sales do not include any kits, and therefore the tanks that are the sales price will not include anything extra besides just the tank. Sadly due to location wise, Hawaii and Alaska are excluded from these sales due to the shipping cost required to make it to these states.
In more recent years it appears that other major retailers including Petsmart are also incorporating these dollar per gallon sale events into their market as well. This may or may not be due to the fact of many of these retailers having a price match guarantee, in which they will match the price of an item if it is the same brand and same size (and due to how popular Aqueon brand tanks are, they are forced to follow their policies). Check with your local retailer to see if they have such a guarantee, since it is a great way to score one of these tanks if a Petco is not located from near where you live.
In order to provide all of the dates (past, present, and future) we needed to have a way to distinguish them apart. Currently, any rumored dates will be in italics, valid and verified sale dates will be bolded, and past dates will have a
strikethrough in their text.
