If you have a dog, check the price of your dog food on Amazon. If it's cheaper at Amazon, which I bet it is, start buying it there and save some money. What follows is a two-year tale that led me to this tip.
Anyways, the pups eat Science Diet Small Bites because that's what our first veterinarian recommended and they're used to it. At first, I would buy the food at a local PetSmart, paying about $33 plus tax for a 15 pound bag. Then I got smart.
I found Wag.com. There, the same 15.5 pound bag of food was $29.99, plus a 5% rebate for a future purchase, free shipping, no tax, and another 2% rebate from a shopping portal. What a steal, I thought! However, sometime in the past 5 months or so, they raised their prices (now $32.49), raised their minimum purchase amount for free shipping, and eliminated the 5% rebate. That didn't work for me, so I got smarter.
Amazon.com! Absolutely unreal! There, they have my boys' food for $28.34 with free shipping (and prime eligibility). Even better, since I know I go through one bag a month and like to have an extra bag on hand in the event of an emergency, I signed up for Subscribe and Save, which takes another 5% off in exchange for an automatic monthly shipment. Combine that discount with no sales tax and the use of my Amazon credit card (basically 3% back on all Amazon purchases), I'm paying $26.15 a month for dog food.
With a little research (and some mistakes along the way), I've managed to shave about 25%, equaling approximately $8 per month, off the cost of my dog food. You can too. Amazon.com. Done.
