During the sale expect tanks to be a dollar per gallon up to 29 and half off any tanks higher.

Tanks above that are usually half off during the sale which works out to be an awesome deal for bigger tanks too! The sale has changed in the past with what's included and what's not and sometimes they vary from sale to sale but for the most part expect 10-29 tanks to be included.

There also some other sweet deals during these sales that we'll be keeping track of, any hardware equipment that goes on sale online in between these sales we'll keep tabs on too.
