Anyone know if Petco price matches to online competitors?

$20 difference between Petco and BigAls on a filter I want. Plus I wouldn't have to pay shipping or wait. Anyone have experience in dealing with Petco?

I would think that they should be OK on equipment. If it was me I would save the twenty and get it. On livestock now that`s a horse of a different color.

I highly doubt it. Petco's stuff is cheaper on their website than in the stores, but they won't even match their own online prices. If you print out something from their website and take it to your local store, they won't match it. At least they won't in my area.
