It’s no secret to those who know me. I’m an online shopper. I dread going to a brick-and-mortar store like most people dread going to the dentist. Maybe it’s social anxiety, maybe it’s just laziness, but shopping online is so convenient. So when MrChewy.com asked me to give my honest opinion of their services, I jumped at the chance!
I was offered a $25 promotional code to place an order on their site. I decided to place an order for some kibble and was highly impressed by the number of high-quality brands they offer. I found Nature’s Variety, Taste of the Wild, Ziwipeak, Blue Buffalo, and Orijen, just to name a few!
So on Tuesday I placed an order for a 15-lb bag of Taste of the Wild “Wild Sierra Mountain” kibble. My local pet store only carries the 5-lb bag and the 30-lb bag, so I was excited to see the 15-lb bag in stock for only $25.99. We usually pay $12.99 for just 5-lbs! For us, that’s like getting a whole week’s worth of food for FREE!
At checkout, I noticed they have an auto-delivery program which I LOVE. You can select any number of weeks between your deliveries, from every 2 weeks to every 14 weeks. Oh, and did I mention that you’ll save 15% off your first order if you sign up for autodelivery? Yeah, baby! :)
Shipping is FREE if you spend $49 (which is easy to do if you order a month’s supply of dog food and some treats), but if you spend less than $49, it’s just $4.95 to ship your order. When you figure in the cost of gas to get to the pet store and the savings MrChewy.com‘s great prices offer, it’s a win-win with either shipping option.
MrChewy.com‘s registration and checkout process was super-simple and I received an order confirmation right away. My order was shipped the very next day by FedEx and I received it just one day after that. Yep, less than 48 hours between the time I placed my order and the time it was on my doorstep!
Upon opening my package, I noticed that the box was nicely packed with brown paper, in order to keep my kibble from bouncing around and possibly tearing the bag. But the real test for me was when I checked the expiration date on the kibble. I have ordered from other online retailers and received expired treats, or kibble that was so close to expiration that I had to wonder how long it had been hanging around some warehouse. Not with MrChewy.com! I was amazed that it was almost a YEAR before the kibble expired! This was great news for me, because if I decided to order 2 bags to qualify for free shipping, I could be assured that one would not expire before we finished the first.
Oh, I almost forgot one of my favorite things about MrChewy.com – they offer an awesome referral program that helps raise money for animal-related charities! If you sign up with MrChewy.com and place your first order using referral code LULU5449, MrChewy.com will give you 10% off your first order AND donate $10 to one of 3 animal-related charities! (PS. Just so you don’t think I’m begging for treats, I get NOTHING for you using my code.)
