Just for background - I write a freebie blog and every so often I write a post on the bargains I have got recently. So today I was working on a post about the mostly free dog food I got at Petsmart yesterday, and had all the dog food set up on the coffee table so I could take my picture.

The dogs, of course, were very interested in "helping", checking the bag to make sure I didn't forget any dog food they could eat and nosing around the food on the table to see if any cans were open make sure I had set it up nice and pretty for the picture.

So I snapped my picture, picked it all up and put it away, and came to the computer to download my pictures. Fortunately I took more than one, because somehow I didn't notice that Dexter's head was in the picture!

Andrea, Tina, are you crazy?  I wanna know how Catherine got all the dog food for 'almost free!'

Trust a pet to be in a photo -- unless of course you are trying to snap his pic!  (Bianca excluded, of course).

OK, Sandie I will share!

As I said, I write a freebie blog, so I am always hunting down bargains. I could feed the dogs completely for free if Dexter didn't have so many allergies - I have 6 free large bags of food just sitting here that he cannot eat and more free product coupons I did not use because of his allergies. We have lots of boxes of free treats as well.

For this particular trip I printed off three $5.00 off PetSmart coupons (you have to be a PetPerks member), and already had three Pet Perks cards, and when I signed up to the Halo newsletter, they sent me a link to print out a coupon for two free cans of their dog food per coupon. I saved the link and print out a few coupons whenever we go to Petsmart. Yesterday I printed off three coupons.

Then Save.ca often has coupons for Beneful food wet dog food - recently there were two - get a free one, and buy one get one free.

I took my son and my husband with me to buy them, and handed out the coupons and PetPerks cards.

To sign up to PetPerks: http://customer-support.petsmart.com/pet-perks/

To print Petsmart coupon: http://s.fatwallet.com/static/attachments/43221__5perkscoupon11_28_10.pdf

To sign up to the Halo newsletter: http://www.halopets.com/

To get Beneful (and more) coupons - http://www.save.ca/purina_en/coupons.php?ext=html

For the Kozy Shack pudding, the coupon was on the packaging of a previous package I had bought.

Here's my latest Canadian shopping trip:

Buffalo Blue dog food - 8 @ $2.29 - sale $1.74 - coupon $5.00 off (x2)
Bichon Santa ornament - $5.99 - coupon $5.00 off
Halo dog food - 6 @ $2.49 - sale $2.29 - free product coupons (x6)
Beneful dog food - 3 @ $2.49 - sale $3/$4.98 - BOGO coupon & free product coupon
Kozy Shack pudding - 3 @ $4.97 - sale $3.97 - coupon Buy 2 get 1 free

Original cost - $61.63
Coupons - $39.89

Out-of-Pocket Cost - $14.51

I think Dexter eyeing up the food is a great photo for your blog even though he wasn't meant to be there. It will just show everyone how delicious the food is!  Laughing

I just checked out your profile and , yes, your  blog is identified.  nodding  So, after perusing it a bit (loved the video of fluffs opening the Amazon order) I subscribed to it via Google Reader.    It looks like a fun blog.   thumbsup

 thumbup  That is great, Catherine, thanks for sharing! 

Yes, I have my PetPerks card (only 1).  My crew have to be on grain free foods, not a lot of those available at PetsMart.  But I LOVE PetsMart, prefer them to PetCo.

We got to see the food and Dexter.  Any chance of seeing the bichon santa?  I know, always asking for more, he heee.

I bought the same ornament but did not have the $5 coupon.  On the front of the box, the type dog was listed as Pit Bull.  Had to show the store manager to complain that a bichon is nothing like a pit bull.  I have a good relationship with the manager so it was not official- just kidding.  Look on the front of your box and see if yours is marked pit bull.

I was thinking - I could do a dog freebie thread (with direct links, not links to my blog) - that I would add to any time I found another freebie?

Not sure where best to put it though, often it's food, but I have found free dog toys and the PetSmart coupons as well.

Or if it's OK with Del?

Just wanted to thank you again, Catherine!

I printed out the coupon and set off for PetsMart this afternoon.  I did find and buy the bichon santa ornament -- the last one they had of the bichon!   IT WAS MEANT TO BE!   LOL!

every year, PetsMart does a charity ornament, Lucky the cat and Chance the dog.  I have most but not all of them since they started.  So while I was there, I picked up the Lucky 2010 ornament, and it was the last Lucky one left!  IT WAS MEANT TO BE!  LOL! 

Couldn't locate the dog one.   No  Got to the check out, and there sitting on the counter was the dog ornament for this year!  I quickly asked the cashier if I could have it, he said sure, the customer ahead of me decided not to take it after all.

All because of this thread!   Thank You

(Yes, I did pick up some other items.)

Catherine, that's a lovely idea to share freebie links/info with our members. thumbsup
You can do your threads in the [Supplies & Services] board meeting
since it covers a number of items (food hungry, toys truck, coupons see) like you say.
Just make your post 'bichon-centric'.... eg: title it "freebies for your Bichon fluff"


I'll make this sorcerer the 1st of your freebie-thread... so more members will benefit from it (like Sandie did thumbsup)

That's what I keep telling my readers - you can do it here in Canada! My best coupon shopping trip was $350 worth of product - for only $26!

On Sunday I spent $16 for $91 worth of food and toiletries.

 clapping  Catherine, I love your blog especially the Swag code alerts.  Using only your alerts and the daily poll, I've already gotten one $5 gift card and am close to another.  I had never heard about Swag bucks before you posted here and it is so easy to pick them up especially since I spend so much time on line.   Laughing Thank You
