Did you go through the forum Pet Store to order?  The forum gets a percentage and benefits from us shopping through them!   :balloon:

Wow you have it expensive.  My local Petsmart has the 30 lb bags on sale this week for $8.99.  I even had a $1.50 off coupon from them too.

So... I guess it's everywhere huh? Last night my friend and I drove about 20 min to get to the closest petsmart. They had the original/nonscented 30lbs bag on sell for 9.99. I was so happy. I had to have it. It's stuck in my car at the moment b/c I can't seem to move it.  :confused:

Petsmart--$9.99
Petco--$20.99

I KID YOU NOT.

Needless to say, I picked up 4 bags at Petsmart but had to do some driving to get it.  I have a BIG guinea pig cage; I go thru the stuff like crazy!
I miss you and love you Teddy Ratsevelt and Benny.  Thank you for being my heart rats.

Petco will price match to PetSmarts price.   Just ask them to call and match it.  :)

Oh my gosh, so lucky. Around here I pay $16.99 for a 30 lb. bag of YN. It finally prompted me to switch to using alfalfa pellets (rabbit food) for bedding. $10 for a 50 lb. bag. :) And it smells nice, like hay and sunshine.

I didn't end up getting it there, because I was gonna checkout (I spend enough to qualify for free shipping) and then there was a $24.00 surcharge!!!! I had never seen that before! So I just said the heck with it and I'm going to drive an hour away to Danvers Massachusetts to my closest PetSmart! Oh, well, the things I'll do to get a bargain!! Maybe
I'll find some toys on sale, too! And, Dearpie, they'll really price match at Petco???? I just call them and say "Hey, Petsmart has a 30lbs. bag of Yesterdays News bedding for $9.99 and yours is $20.99, can you Price Match"???
That's it? Ugh! That would have been helpful, oh, say, 2 years ago (not to mention it would have- seriously- save me thousands of dollars!!

Petsmart--$9.99
Petco--$20.99

I KID YOU NOT.

Sure, you think YOU go like it like CRAZY!!! You haven't seen CRAZY bedding usage until you come to MY house!! I truly believe somedays that I use more bedding then all of you combined. That's either pathetic or just rat obsession........ RAT OBESSION;D

If you use the links on the forum in the Pet Stores section (like Dearpie suggested) for PETsMART you get 15% off any order more that $60 and you still can qualify for free shipping. Let me know if you use it though so I can make sure they give us a percentage. So far no one has shown up as using the PETsMART links.

Thanks, Goose, but I decided against it at checkout when they added the $24 surcharge!!! I don't even know why they do that! The FerretStore doesn't, so I ordered from them. I forgot to use the link, but I sent a message to customer service asking that they do still give you a percentage. I will send them another email if I don't hear from them.

Thanks. That is really wierd about PETsMART though, I wonder what the heck their reasoning for a surcharge was. If you get a chance, ask them! If not, let me know and I'll email them too.

The surcharge is due to the weight of the litter.  It's a weight surcharge.  That's why I have never found it worthwhile to order Yesterday's News online.  "Free shipping" refers to items that come in below a certain weight.
I miss you and love you Teddy Ratsevelt and Benny.  Thank you for being my heart rats.

That's good to know, because I like some other stuff they have there ;D. Besides, I wouldn't like very much to lug a 200lb. box of YN into my house, LOL! Thanks, again, that really got me curious!

Did you use the forum pet stores link? There is a $15 off coupon, plus the forum gets 5%.

*cough* What are the prices like on the Ferretstore? I found that yes, they don't charge shipping, but they DO charge double or more on their Cell-Sorb!!  So they're not losing money.

And yes, when I've needed YN and I'm not driving to Petsmart, I'll pop into Petco and have them call Petsmart for a price match. They're always 'happy to do it" .. it's good customer service, yanno. ::)
