Pet Hacks To Save you Money

Pet Hacks To Save you Money

today's blog post is going to be my three tips on how you can save money at pet stores


The idea for this blog post came to me the other day when I was actually at Petco and I was getting some pet supplies for my hamster and my other animals and the girl who was checking me out she was like wow you saved like $11 on the shopping trip. So I thought that I would write this blog post showing you how I save money whenever I go get my pet supplies.


if you have pets that it can be kind of pricey, so these are just my tips and tricks for how I save money whenever I go.


1.COUPONS


If you sign up with Petco or pet smart rewards and you give them your address and information, they should send you coupons that you can use to save money on your next visit, sometimes You'll have like free dog suits and cat foods or sometimes you'll even have things like 10% off your purchase and that can come in handy whenever you make a trip to the store.


I would highly suggest taking advantage of their reward programs because they really are beneficial in the end.


2. SHOP AROUND


If you know that you need something, don't just go to the first store that you think of and buy the item, look at different stores and see who has the best price and then see if that store will match that price for you


For example, the cheese chews, as you know the cheese chews are pretty expensive, they usually run about $5 at Petco but they don't have to be $5, Walmart actually has a brand of these, that is like two or three dollars and then also Amazon. So just be sure to shop around for the best price and that way you're getting the best deal for your money.

3. MY GOLDEN TIP


This is going to be my golden tip for how to save money when you're at the pet store buying pet supplies. So the way I'm going to tell you how to do this is basically walk you through how I go about doing this before every single trip to the pet store.


The first thing I do is I make a list mentally or on my phone of everything that I need to get for whatever animal it is, normally is my hamster, she's the one who requires the most little bitty things that I want to buy her.


The second thing I do is I go on my phone and obviously my pet store of choice is Petco, so I usually go to Petco first. PetSmart is generally just more expensive but if I can't find something that I need at Petco I obviously will check at Petsmart.


I'm going to look up Ecotrition cheese chews as the example


Once I found the product that I'm looking for, I did look at the price that it is and see if it's on sale, so I have found the Ecotrition cheese chews they are normally $5 and they are on sale 46% off for $2.69 online and all I do is screenshot it, that takes a picture of the screen and save it to your camera roll


So once I go in the store, I've got my item, I go up to the checkout and then I show them that online is actually 46% off and Petco will match the online price.


A lot of people don't know that Petco actually has a policy that anything that's on their website that they sell in store if it is on sale they will match that price, so I make sure to do this before every single trip, that way I know I'm getting the best price that I can from the company.


So all I did was is use this method, I go on the website, look at the item, see if it's on sale, I screenshot it, take it to the store and I show it to them and it's that simple. It's not cheating the system or anything like that, you're just getting the on sale price and the store will honor it.


I've never done this method at Petsmart, but I'm pretty sure they would probably honor it.


So that is how I spend money on all of my pet supplies every single time I go to the store. You don't have to pay full price at a pet store, you can always look for deals, you just have to do a little bit of work but it is completely worth it and I highly suggest trying these tips and tricks.
