I have no idea about the air question but I can guess what you are getting with you 250 post wind fall!

yeah the wife offered to get me a cylinder for my birthday so the 250th money will go twards subsadizing that. This way she avoids some of the sticker shock.

I am sure they will fill a newly purchased ST tank free of charge.

As am I since I am picking up at the store but I was wondering more for my ongoing purposes. The bicycle pump just does not cut it.

one thing to consider is where you live in relation to the dive shop. I've bought every piece of gear at ST except for my tanks. I live up in Plano and bought my tanks at the LDS here in town. The cost was about $20 per tank above the ST price, but, they provide free air fills for life - and that swung me to buy from them.

Yeah I have always had to pay $7 or $8 for air. So even then the $5 scuba toys fills are looking mighty appealing. What I would realy like is a season pass for air where I pay a flat $30 or so for the year.

So would the rest of us!

Such plans are rare, however. :(

Hmmm, interesting.... how do they know that the tank was purchased there, and that it is the one with free airfills for life? Do they put a label on the tank, or go by their VIP sticker or something?

I wondered this too could I get away with buying one tank from them then get my vis on the other there next year and pass them both off as the same.

Hadn't thought of that. I just figured ethics would cover it and people would do the right thing.

My local lds is a little higher as well but offers free fills as well, thats why I just bought my wife a couple tanks there. In their case they log the ser# and they add a vis. sticker which states free air for life.

I get free air for life on my cylinders because I got them from them. I paid more for the cylinders, basically about $50 more than I could get it online for. But, free air for life and I dive enough to justify that.

My own VIP's are on the cylinder, they just remember I bought them from there because I'm always in there. They never forget so it doesn't matter what label is on it.

the extra $50 would pay for itself in easily a year, great deal

I had no idea this was even done.
