Well I found a way to make it work. Sometimes I enjoy online shopping. That 5.5 gallon tank at petsmart was on sale 29.99 then shipping bumped it back up to 36.00. Then I found a good heater for 28.04(of course this is overpriced). So my goal was to get over 50 dollars to get free shipping. Well with the Tank and heater the price came up to 58 and change. So then I noticed this 15% off if you spend over 60 dollars. So I found a tiny little silk plant for 1.99 and got the price to 60 and change.
So after the free shipping, and 15% off my total price is 51.02 for:
5.5 gallon tank
50 watt submersible heater
1 silk plant
I guess it all pans out to a reasonable deal. My wife spent 18 dollars on two silk plants, some gravel, and water purifier tonight at petco. I feel I'm getting more for my money on this deal. LOL
