5 Best Online Sites for Discount Pet Supplies
Save some cash on shopping for your essential pet supplies
By E.A. Anne
Buying pet supplies online is the fastest route to finding the best discounts available. Forget retail stores. No store can compete in terms of discounts with online retailers.
1. Petco.com has a leg up on other online retailers because of the vast number and variety of pet supplies it makes available. Any item you could want for your pet — be it food, toys, dog houses or grooming kits — you will find it here, and much cheaper than at most small stores. Petco.com always has some sort of promotion going on, so skim the home page for deals and free-shipping offers.
2. Pet-dog-cat-supply-store.com This online supply retailer is a little-known gem in the pet world. While the products may not be top name brands, the discounts are stupendous. You may end up spending some extra time sifting through some junkie products, but it will be worth your time in the end.
3. Dog.com Because Dog.com is an online retailer for dogs only, the variety of supplies is vast, and can be overwhelming. This site is best used by dog owners looking for specific products for specific purposes — skimming through the numerous pages of supplies can take a while. If you do feel like window shopping, check out the great clearance section for wonderful deals.
4. Petsmart.com is similar to Petco.com, but it’s a little easier to navigate and the selection is even larger. Again, the clearance section is key to finding great discounts, which are abundant on this Web site.
5. Onlynaturalpet.com The world of natural and organic pet supplies is expensive, so finding a good discount retail Web site is important. This one offers just that — natural supplies at affordable prices.
When shopping online for anything, remember that coupons are really easy to find. Before you purchase anything online, seek out online coupons, which can give you anything from free shipping to 50 percent off. Retailmenot.com is a great resource for coupons for all of the above discount pet supply Web sites.
