To keep your four-legged friend from licking your budget dry, follow these 9 savings tricks!
1. Sign up for loyalty programs.
Take advantage of rewards programs offered through your favorite pet stores for freebies, special promos and dollars-off future purchases. Petco's Pals Rewards program gives members $5 for every $100 in purchases, for example, plus special pricing on products throughout the store. Your local pet store might offer a loyalty program or points as well, so inquire about your options.
2. Double the discount with gift cards.
Sites like GiftCardGranny.com sell pet store gift cards at a big discount - you're looking at saving up to 25% off Petco gift cards and over 19% off gift cards to PetSmart. Use these discount gift cards as currency and try to pair them with sale items, coupon codes and/or reward bucks to keep your dog care items really cheap!
