When it comes to having pets, there is no denying that they eat a lot. And if you’re like most pet parents, your pets eat a lot of food. We have a 50-pound lab/retriever mix, and he eats more than I thought possible! It’s important to save money on pet food when you can and here are some tips for you to consider.
How to Save Money on Pet Food
Buy from Amazon
Amazon is one of the best places to shop because you can literally buy everything you possibly need. You can just use the Amazon app or head over to Amazon.com to buy everything you need and have it shipped right to your house. It’s nice having the ability to buy pet food and pet products, all from the same place. If you don’t like Amazon, you can still buy online and save a lot of money! I love Amazon because of free shipping with Prime.
If you have been around the blog at all, I'm sure you know where I'm going next. You can earn free Amazon Gift Cards at over 45 places that can help you get your pet food and supplies for free!
Write the Big Brands
When it comes to saving money on pet food, let those big brands know that you love it. Writing these big brands lets them know you love it, but they also appreciate the feedback, don't forget to include any feedback you have or ideas to help them out. It is not unheard of for these companies to send you a coupon for just letting them know what you thought. Hey, it’s worth a shot when it comes to saving money on pet food. Especially, if you love the pet food, and the pet food is kind of pricey. The best way to do this
The best way to do this is to head to the brand's website and find the contact page and shoot them an email.
Follow Pet Brand’s on Social Media
There’s something you should know about any brand; they love having their fans follow them on Facebook. Sometimes the fans and followers on social media are the first to find out about savings. Following big pet brands and pet stores on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram is a great way to save money on pet food. You’ll get to know firsthand when coupons, sales, and discount codes are available.
Buy Pet Food in Bulk
Probably one of the most sensible ways to save money on pet food is to buy it in bulk. You can usually get more product per penny whenever you buy things this way. Buying in bulk always costs more upfront, but just think of how awesome it will be not to have purchase a pet product every week. Instead, you can enjoy only buying it every few months. Watch sites like Groupon for deals on memberships to places like Sams Club and Costco.
Join the Reward Program
Many of the places you buy your pet food and supplies offer reward programs. Places let Petco are popular for this. The rewards programs let you earn points toward cash back or free products, plus they learn what products you like and send you coupons for those products. Win-win!
Sign up for Doggyloot.com and watch for deals. They are the daily deal site for pets.
Buying pet food doesn’t need to be expensive. You can enjoy your furry little critters, and they won’t cost you an arm and a leg. The next time you need to buy pet food, consider any of these money saving tips for pet food.
I am a mom to 5 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
