XP3 - list price?

Does anyone know the list price for an XP3? I can't find it anywhere.


I'm trying to decide between Big Al's, and ordering it from my LFS since I get everything for list price and 10% off.

If anyone could help out with this, It'd be great!

Thanks!

Do you mean MSRP? If so, your LFS should have it on book, in their wholesaler's catalogue...just call them.

I got mine from big al's for $95 on sale. I've seen them in Petco's for double that.

I paid $190 CDN for mine. Just a little over the big al's online price, but I didn't have to pay shipping

I have it on my 90G and it does a really, really good job. My 30G has a HOB filter and there is no comparison with a canister.

I"m pretty tight with my LFS owner. he flat out tells me that Wal Mart sells their fish nets for about a nickel more than his cost.

There's really only 2 dry goods distributors now, so a lack of competition means no price cuts.

From what I've gathered, Big Als sells almost at LFS list price, so I highly doubt you can get an XP3 cheaper at the LFS even with 10% off.

Well, I picked up the cascade 1000 tonight when we were closing.
Shelf price = $130.
Exodus' price = $65.

I'm not going to complain.
