Pets are like family to us. They make us happy when we are sad, they make us laugh with their cute small mischievous and sometimes they understand us better than our own family or friends. They also make us poorer according to the latest survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association. According to them, the first-year cost for pet owners exceeds $1,000, which sometimes led to a question of can you even afford having a furry member of the family. However, thanks to businesses like PetSmart, Chewy and Petco that use price matching to stand out from competitors, owning a pet starts to resemble a normal money-friendly activity you have to do in order to reserve a fun atmosphere in your house.
PetSmart an American retail chain of pet animal products and services, and one of the hot spots for pet owners when it comes to buying pet food, toys, and other equipment and tools. In 2017, another retailer of pet food and pet-related products, Chewy, became a subsidiary of a company PetSmart. With various online deals and in-shop savings, it is easy to get confused whether is better for your pocket to buy things in PetSmart or Chewy or it is just the same.
Just comparing some of the items from both store lead us to the conclusion it is much cheaper to shop from Chewy when it comes to pet-related things like food, treats or hygiene products. To give you an example, here is the comparison list of a couple of products including prices:
- BULLY SPRINGS by REDBARN NATURALS:
- MINI BONES by PUR LUV
- HEALTHY PUPPY FORMULA PREMIUM by PURINE ONE SMARTBLEND
- HEALTHY WEIGHT ADULT DOG FOOD by PURINA BENEFUL
- CAT FLEA & TICK TREATMENT by FRONTLINE PLUS
- PREMIUM FERRET DIET by MARSHALL
For some of the products, price is the same as Essential adult rabbit food by Oxbow ($10.62), Quick Clumping Cat Litter by BLUE Naturally Fresh ($11.99) or Grilled tuna by Fancy Feast (59 cents/can). If you tick the option buying with AutoShip & Save, product prices are even less with Chewy than with PetSmart. You will pay even more if you go to the PetSmart store and buy products there.
As most of the retail shops are aware of the fact that people go online and shop, mostly on Amazon, they want to be competitive with the prices so they will match their online prices to get the loyal buyers. Use this customer-friendly option to save money while buying products for your loving furry companions.
