Tank sale at Petco? Oh no!

I just got back from browsing at Petco and found out that the one in my area is having a sale on aquariums, Aqueon brand to be exact. 1$ per gallon!!! The smallest tank on the wall display was 5.5g, I'm looking into a 10g. The stickers said the sale lasts until Jan 21st. (I honestly don't know if this sale is at other petcos)
Now I just have to find a place (other than the floor) for my little guy's future home. He has a 1.5-2g. I'd have a 100g tank for him if I could afford it, but thats the biggest thing for me, I can't afford a big tank for over $40.. I was lucky to find the tank I have, clean and $4 at Goodwill.

Or even, get a divider and another betta?! They had a lot of different bettas to choose from, and the temptation is nearly too much!

First time poster, long time lurker. :)

...if this is at my Petco, I'll beat myself up for paying full price for my 20 gallon that I literally got last week.

That aside, welcome to the forum. (:

Badjer - I can't say for sure but I think its all Petcos (they have this type of sale every once in awhile).
AllureaLycia - welcome!
I plan on getting a 10G at the sale myself and I'll be dividing it either 2 or 3 ways (I already have the bettas though)
there is a chance they'll have some cheap-ish tank stands there too.
Just make sure to get the right sized hood and a heater and filter - and of course all the decorations :)

My bettas: 6 boys and 8 sorority girls
Making it my mission to have all natural planted tanks!

That's no big deal so long as they can't get through it or over it. They'll get used to each other after a few days.

This sale was at my local petco as well.
I went from going to get about 15G tank to getting a 29G.

Boy those sales really got me good.
