Just to update everyone. I went to Petsmart. Their price for IO 160 gal salt was $45.99. The price at petsmart.com was $31.99. I went to Petsmart with a printout of the salt for $31.99. They did a price change at the register and I paid $34.75 after tax. I will be doing that more often. I saved alot of money. Thanks penpitt!
Jim

The cost for the same 160 gal bucket at my LFS is upward of $70 last time I looked. With prices like that you can see its indeed far cheaper for some of us to buy online and pay high shipping fees.

I usually don't buy anything from Petsmart, but if I can save that much on salt, then I will keep buying the salt from them. If you buy from drsfostersmith.com then the shipping isn't that much.

I just wish my Petsmarts here sold the 200 gallon buckets of Oceanic because I would do that. But when Drsfostersmith had there free shipping in December and no weight charges for salt I bought 3 buckets of Oceanic salt then. That should last me around 6 months.

Wow! Gonna have to check with drfostersandsmith tomorrow since I have to order some stuff anyway. Way cool if I can get salt at no extra shipping charge. Betting I'm not eligible though due to location. We do have Petsmart on the way here in Anchorage though, so may be able to use the price matching thing I currently pay $22 for a 50 gallon bag of IO, and that's at Petco here.

Several smaller pet stores here have went out of business recently just because Petsmart is on the way.

I'm waiting of a free bucket from Kent. I emailed them about a low pH problem I was seeing and after sending them a 1 lb sample they agreed that it was low in pH and Alk. So they are sending me a new bucket to make up for the buffers I've been using.
