Hey everyone........I was wondering if Petsmart would match any price online, whether it's Petsmart online, or any other store like Dr. Foster and Smith?

are you saying petsmart is expensive or cheap? I think they are the cheapest but lack in service and choice, there is such a small selection at petsmart but a huge selection and fosters and smiths etc. But i dont think they can beat anyone at there prices.

Petsmart matched a price for me. Their Tahitian moon sand was $24.99/20 lb bag. I got it for $10.99. I printed a page from an ebay store.

Well, I was only wondering about Angelicus Loaches........they are 21.99 at my Petsmart and I have found them for 13.00 online. Also, their "fake" driftwood is 35 bucks, and if I found any cheaper, I was going to print it out and show them. Other than that, yes they are very cheap

There are a whole bunch of Petsmart stores around here, but really only 3 that I shop at, depending on where I'm going or coming from. Two of them will match prices from ANYWHERE if you bring a printout with the price. I once found a website that was going out of business and had all their filters for $4 (that's right, FOUR DOLLARS) and they matched that, even. One store will only match prices from their own and Petco's websites, and other local stores. That store's manager is kind of a poop in general, though, so I suspect it's more to do with that individual than with an official policy.

Well I went to my Petsmart (Little Rock and North Little Rock, AR), and they said they would match online prices, but only from the petsmart site. So, in the store, the Penguin 350 Bio Wheel Filters are $47 a piece. Online they are $22........so I have that one printed. I may do gravel also because it's a little more expensive in the store. Heaters are cheap there, anything else I should look online for?

Technically, Petsmart is only supposed to match prices from their own website. Sometimes you get lucky, like I did before my old Petsmart got a new manager, and they kind of just ignore that policy and will match any retailer. but for the most part, it has to be from their website.

Well, at least I can get my filters now for around 55 bucks together instead of one being 50 in store. Seems like a good deal to me

How much is it to ship live fish Vs. other products ?

well, thing is you have to make an order like over 50 bucks, and shipping is 30, so at those prices, it comes out even

Print the coupons for the heaters. You do save a bunch on them too.

My local petsmart does. That is my fav petstore. Like one time there was a bag of sand for 20.00 and I needed it but on a website it was only 5.00 so they matched the price. It was sweet to cut the deal that much.

Depends on how much of a pushover the GM is. If you come to my store I guarantee we'll price match anything. ;)

Thank you for your recent email. PetSmart's vision is to provide Total Lifetime Care to Every Pet, Every Pet Parent, Every Time. We believe our everyday prices are lower than our competitors' everyday prices and in most cases, as low as or lower than their sale prices...but instead of making our Customers wait for a sale, we guarantee that our prices are the lowest EVERY DAY.

To back up our claim of Everyday Low Prices, we offer to price match items of local retail competitors. This guarantee states that if a Customer finds a lower price from a legitimate retailer on any identical item that they have purchased from PetSmart, we will price match the competitor's retail price at the PetSmart retail store. This guarantee gives our claim of Everyday Low Prices its credibility and is a vital part of our total company image. We only price match our own website here at PetSmart.

Next time you are in the PetSmart store, please speak with the Store Manager, who will gladly assist you with any questions. You are important to PetSmart and we value any input you may have now and in the future.

The lady at our local PetSmart said to us (side mouthed) that they will match any competitor's price. We just have to print the other price off the website and bring in the paper.

When we set up our 20 high gallon, we went to get a Penguin 200 and it was $29 at the store, hubby told her that it was $26 on their website (we didn't have the paper). She called the manager and he went to look on the site and came back and told us it was $20. So we saved money for the Penguin 200. That was a great save. She even told us when we fill out the survey paper for our pets (make sure to give them a birthday) and PetSmart will send coupons in the mail for our fishies. Haven't turned it in yet. But we will.:dance2:

Oooo, think Petsmart would match Wally Worlds $155 price for a 55g? (tank, hood, filter, heater) Maybe I could get some really good stuff for cheap!?!

Petsmart will match the prices on any non-live goods. So if its dog food or gravel or something they should meet the price (provided you bring in proof of the price difference). However they don't meet the price on any live animals. So you won't be able to get any fish, rodents, etc for a matched price of somewhere else.

i'm a manager at petsmart so i'll clear up what the policy is...

petsmart will not match prices on any live pets or fish or on services... and we will match Petsmart.com but will not match any other web sites...

as far as price matching stores, you should some kind of proof that the price is what you are claiming... coupon, advertisement, receipt...

and finally, the product has to be something that we carry in our stores... for instance, we can not match the price of a fish tank that is not top fin brand...

thats the policy as far as i understand it, and i'm sure some managers may wave the policy on occasion, so good luck! and always check petsmart.com before you buy stuff because the prices online can be WAY cheaper than in the stores... and make sure we carry the same product in the store as online because we carry more stuff than online. and don't be afraid to try. we as managers would rather match a price than loose a customer and sale... especially on coupons as they don't affect our sales.

once again, just my 2 cents..
