I'm glad I went early! There were some indications by noon that certain stores weren't accepting the coupons at all.

I used the 50% for my big purchase this morning (before 9:30!) and then went to another Petco later and used the 25% off to buy the canopy for my 55g that the first store didn't have.

To be honest I don't think anyone is going to get in "trouble" for this.. if anything it will just point out that they need a more secure coupon system.

Well, I'm not saying I mind either, but from a business standpoint, 50% off your WHOLE purchase is a fundamentally bad idea.. of course people are going to take advantage of it if they can (I did, obviously, and I don't really feel that bad about it because my actual savings really isn't anything close to the $216 printed on my receipt.. I probably saved more in the neighborhood of $80-100 on everything I bought, which is still significant, but it also points out that there's a reason I don't shop at Petco often - the prices are too high). Places like BB&B and JoAnn's offer coupons almost weekly, but they're typically valid for one item only... that one item gets you in the door, where you'll most likely buy other things too (unless you're very patient and keep waiting for coupons).

Very true.
I rarely shop at Petco because they are so overpriced.
I can buy pretty much everything they have at Amazon for much less, see the reviews and get free shipping provided I spent $25 or more.
The Fluval Chi I got was priced at $69... Amazon sells it for $59
This was a good deal and I don't blame pet owners for wanting to buy as much as they can afford.

Guys, thanks again for posting this! I bought the Aqueon 50w heater and the Petco Aquatic Gardner for like $20-something bucks with that coupon (bill was over $40).

Agreed, but it's hard to beat a 55 gallon for $27.50 before tax :)

I buy a lot on Amazon.. I have prime and I'm super spoiled by their 2 day shipping.

I meant in a regular day... not with this coupon. I did take advantage of it. I was surprised that they combined the $1 per galon sale with this coupon... I think it's great!

I shared this with a couple of people and one of them saved big but the other one went after they capped it to $25.
