Group Buy - Aquatic World

Postby causeofhim on Tue Mar 22, 2005 9:34 am

I called Aquatic World and talked to Amber about a group buy on new tanks. She said that she could give $5-$10 off per tank depending on tank size. She says that will basically put them at cost. If anyone wants to buy a "package" she can give a better discount. Although, she could not give disconts on 10gal.

Just need to call her ahead of time with a group order and she will make sure the tanks are in stock.

Who is interested?

List so far:
causeofhim - 40L
bobbet43 - 40B
big02daddy2002 - (2) 75's

I may be interested in a 120RR - it depends on when they are being ordered.

Haven't set a specific date yet. Probably around the middle of April.

I'd be interested in the price on a 120 RR as well.

Did we ever get a price on these?

I think I'm probably not going to go in on it - if the price I heard Saturday was correct [wasn't any cheaper than Pet World].

I'm curious what prices are being tossed around (pet world price, etc??) From the aquatic world web site, a 120RR is listed as $367.99 - I'm not sure if there are cheaper places?

I'm pretty sure when I was in Pet World last, their AGA 120 RR's were right around $360 as well. No cheaper, but easier than Oconomowoc + can be bought any time - thus my thinking.

I just called Pet World. Price on a 120 gal w/overflows is $376.29. The price listed on Aquatic World's site is $367.99. When I called I asked about a discount on 40 gal tanks and she quoted me $5-$10 off. I didn't ask about adding a 120 gal into the purchase. You could call there and ask for Amber (262) 567- 7339, she basically told me that she would give me the others at around cost.

The 40 long at Pet World is only 75.29, which is a few dollars cheaper than Aquatic World's price on their site. If she can't give us a good deal, i would suggest buying locally as well.

Would this include any special order tanks or just in stock?

She told me to call ahead of time with what we want and she would make sure that they had it. I'm not sure exactly what she meant. Give her a call and tell her you with MARS doing the group buy.

I am always up for a local buy at petworld, i wonder if petworld would hook us up? Save the trip down to Oconomowoc, price match and knock off a few bucks for us for buyin so many tanks at once :?

I've never bought anything from Pet World. If someone knows them and could give them a call to ask, that would be great. Any manager there should be able to hook us up.

If no one wants to call, I will. Let me know.

I know the mgr of the fish dept- but in Waukesha. Doesn't help you out much if you are looking for a buy in Madison.
