Wanted - coupons
 
Don't know if this works as a "free" thing or not but was thinking if any of us knew where to get coupons for free or even cents off cat and dog food it would be great to share the info here. :D I for one am feeling the pinch a little with the cat food bill. I know others are too. :o
The coupons Shay sent me and told me about were a great help to me! :thumbs up I picked up a 6.6 pound bag of Evo today for free! I thought we could all share if we heard about web sites offering coupons or mail ins or whatever so everyone could benefit.

I know if you email a lot of companies (Old Mother Hubbard for one) and ask for samples, they'll either send you some via mail or send you free coupons.

The pet supply store that you buy most of your cat/dog food at, do they ever get returns? Or bags that have split, cans that have dinged? If they don't already work with a rescue, perhaps you can ask them for the stuff they can't sell. The wholesalers refund them their money in exchange for the bar code but they don't take the food back. Hopefully there's a store or two in your area that would be willing to share with you :fingerscr. And if you don't receive a discount on food already, you should ask for one...you buy such a large quantity, the least the store can do for you is offer a percentage off.

And if that doesn't work, have you thought to buy direct from a wholesaler? There's a place nearby here that I used to purchase dog food, treats, and dog shampoos when I was buying in bulk for a shelter and another rescue. Maybe there's a distributor near you as well who'd be willing to sell to you.

Thanks LP. Unfortunately the stores in this area have already been approached by all the registered rescues and give to them. I am in the process of doing research to get registered but until then....... I can't fight with the ones that are. I am slowly going through the "free sample" one too.
I just thought we could all use coupons occasionally. I know I sometimes get ones for dog food in the mail and very seldom use them. Maybe someone else could. :shrug:

Blue Buffalo has a survey you can take for a $5.00 off coupon. Though I don't know if I would trust the food right now. We're taking a sample to be tested next week for possible contamination.

luckypenny September 4th, 2010 12:57 AM

I'm going to see what I can come up with, 14+ :fingerscr.

aslan September 4th, 2010 06:45 AM

14+,,i just googled online coupons for free pet food and came up with eleventy billion web sites,,this is one.

on another note,my neighbour is now working for a new company and apparantly they have a huuuuge dumpster just for throwing out pet foods where the bags have been damaged(may just even be a rip in the outer bag)..i've asked him to grab me cat foods whenever he can for you...

14+kitties September 4th, 2010 07:56 AM

Thank you so much ladies! I had started going through the list of companies and googled stuff but because there were so many thought this may be a faster way of finding coupons. :o This way a bunch of great folks get together and come up with ways of cutting corners that will benefit everyone. :grouphug:
GentsBabe - I will PM you. Not taking this into general. :thumbs up

:D So a lot of those coupons are printable ones. Lots of places around here will not take printable coupons off line. :shrug: We won't touch them at work because they are too easy to change.
But I am slowly making my way through other sites. :laughing: :thumbs up

14+kitties September 4th, 2010 11:30 AM

Just to be clear. I started this thread to try to help others with coupons too. Not just me. :o I truly appreciate ALL the help and suggestions coming in and I hope it helps others out as well. This is what this site is all about!! :thumbs up

Thank you everyone! :grouphug:

:grouphug: Thank you!! You have had enough to worry about lately. I wasn't going to bug you about it. :p ;) I hope things are looking up. :fingerscr:goodvibes:
I got the other one you told me about and used it the same day. Great! It's what gave me the idea for this thread. :thumbs up

shannon1233A September 26th, 2010 10:30 AM

Among the other stuff 14+kitties, I'll be sending you coupons for Kitty Litter, and Cat food :)

14+kitties September 26th, 2010 11:04 AM

There is a sample bag coupon here. Proctor and Gamble has purchased this company so not sure how long the ingrediants will stay the same. But its worth the free bag now. You can get both cat & dog food and DH even put his name in for a free bag. :thumbs up...they are 28.00 for the Evo cat food so that was worth it.

krdahmer November 1st, 2010 05:28 PM

just make sure when you fill it out to say you are feeding something like whiskas on the questionaire then it's a free bag if you say that you already feed natura you only get $5 off

Chris21711 November 1st, 2010 05:44 PM

I've tried a few times, all I keep getting is "something went wrong" :frustrated:

aslan November 1st, 2010 07:13 PM

Winston November 2nd, 2010 09:58 AM

No doesnt seem to matter..DH and I have different last names and they sent us each coupons. Also I asked for dog & cat and they sent both....I'll give it a shot!

Chris21711 November 2nd, 2010 10:06 AM

Thanks a bunch Winston.

14+kitties November 2nd, 2010 10:34 AM

I have one of the coupons from before. Don't know if it's the same promo or not. It probably is. Masstiflover was kind enough to send it to me but I know I can't use it at the stores near here. It's for the Global on Hanna Ave in TO. If anyone wants it PM me and I will send it.
These coupons don't specify dog or cat. Just says 5 - 6.6 bag of pet food free and shows two bags for cats, two for dogs.
If it's a different promo then I will try to order one for me too. :D

Winston November 2nd, 2010 11:21 AM

Chris21711 November 2nd, 2010 11:32 AM

In the event 14k has logged off Winston, I think the Global in St Catherines in the easiest....14k is talking about going there this afternoon in Benni's thread.

aslan November 2nd, 2010 11:34 AM

since i put in an address of a store near me,,i'll pick up the bag of cat food and whomever needs or wants it let me know.

TwinTails November 5th, 2010 12:13 AM

I emailed every top notch company and explained my situation (regarding a Service Dog and being low income). I asked for coupons and have not had to buy cat or dog food for about 6 months now. Even Orijen mailed me a coupon for a large bag free (Byron now eats Summit Lamb and Orijen Regional Red). The cats recently got 3 coupons for California Natural/Evo, so they are now on Evo Grain free. I won't have to buy more food for another 3 months, at least. Most companies are wonderful and will send you either FPC (free product coupons) or cents off. Friskies actually sent me a voucher for 15 cans free (but USA only, so I mailed it to a pal in the US).
