I don’t know about you, but one thing I dread going to the store to pick up is pet food. Whether you buy dry or canned food, it is always heavy and awkward to carry. And recently, I have found that spending an unusual amount of time staring blankly at the different options leads to uncomfortable conversations with other customers and with concerned store employees.
I always knew that ordering my pet food online was an option. I had always thought that ordering online was for people buying in bulk to save time and money, or people buying specialty foods that were not available in the stores. Then I found MrChewy.com.
MrChewy.com has a huge selection of brand name pet food. When I first went to the site I was a little overwhelmed with over seventy brands of pet food, and I had that same blank stare that attracted concerned passers-by at the pet food store. For those who don’t know, I have a 15 year old cat (left) and a 1 & 1/2 year old cat who was rescued as a feral kitten (right). So my cats are at two very different ends of the spectrum, and their dietary needs can make it a little difficult to find a food that suits them both. Mr. Chewy made it simple for me. Instead of standing in the cat food aisle trying to read the benefits and ingredients on every bag and can, I could choose what health benefits I was looking to get out of the food and Mr. Chewy narrowed down my search for me!
My other concern with ordering food online was the shipping time. I am one of those people who consistently forgets to buy more pet food until I am almost completely out. My order from Mr. Chewy arrived in 2 days. 2 DAYS! And if I want to be a little more on top of things, Mr. Chewy would let me set a delivery schedule so that the food would be delivered to my house regularly and I would never run out. Being able to avoid those awkward conversations where I try to explain why after thirty minutes of standing in the aisle I have yet to come to a decision on what food to buy, is more than a little exciting to me. And the idea never having to make those last minute, late night runs to the store to grab food is is a huge relief!
Probably my favorite thing about Mr. Chewy is that he and his staff are all a huge supporters of the animal rescue community. They have created a really great referral program that will donate $10 to the animal welfare organization you select, for each friend you refer to Mr. Chewy. You can even tell Mr. Chewy about a great animal welfare organization that you would like to be considered for his list of organizations. Animal rescue is a cause that is near and dear to my heart, and I have already made my first recommendation for the list!
Now comes the best part! If you use our discount code, BECK1310, you can save 10% off of your first order! Plus, Mr. Chewy will donate $10 to Best Friends Animal Society! So why are you still lugging heavy bags and cases of pet food to and from your car? Go get your food delivery schedule set up now and you will only have to go as far as your front door to get your pet food from now on.
On behalf of myself, Honey (pictured) and Pepsi, I would like to thank Mr. Chewy for giving us a credit towards our pet food order so we could try this awesome service.
