American Express Offers

April 29th, 2014 at 02:39 am

I took advantage of the American Express "spend $5 on itunes and get a $5 statement credit." It's hard to believe; that means free music, right? I spent $5.20 on four songs to use for my spinning class. Need to check to make sure I get the credit.

There is also an offer for $5 statement credit when you spend $25 at Petsmart. I need to get down there tomorrow to buy cat and dogfood I'd be buying anyway.

And thinking about dogfood and catfood... I am really conflicted. We don't have a ton of money to spend, but I am realizing that Iams, which I thought was good, is basically just like supermarket brands. Every website says to go with the grain-free, protein based foods, but they're super expensive. Iams is about $28 for 25 lbs. v. $52 for a 30 lb. bag of Blue Buffalo.

I might use our coupon to try something new...

What do you use?

    Some of the Costco kibble is better than most dry foods and it's a lot less expensive. Check the labels. However, a lot of people swear by Blue Buffalo. I have cats that can't tolerate grain, so they get a combination of chicken, California Natural canned, and the duck based Blue/Wilderness. Boneless skinless chicken is actually LESS expensive per pound at Sprouts than the best price on Blue.

    I can't find that $5 offer. I did redeem one a few months ago, so maybe it was one time only!

    One of my house sitting clients feeds her dogs rice, cottage cheese and chicken (what Evers on sale). Dog is super healthy and loves it. Also has much less gas, tummy trouble or diarrhea as he did on the store bought. Got the recommendation from her vet. She said it is cheaper than the dog food she used to buy.

    They'll typically eat less of the grain-free foods, since those have fewer fillers, so the cost difference isn't quite as dramatic as it seems. You also generally end up with lower vet bills in the long run. A good site for comparing dog food is www.dogfoodanalysis.com - I don't know offhand of a similar site for cat food, but the information should be mostly relevant to both.

    We use Blue Buffalo, and I think the cats do eat less than they did when we purchased another brand. The cost seems worth it to me. Shiny coats, too. Very hard to find coupons though, pretty much non existent. I have purchased discounted gift cards for cat food stores.

    Thanks for the reminder of the Amex Petsmart offer. I, too, need to get cat food today.

    Just a comment about homemade food -- it's fairly easy for dogs (and I did it with great results for years) but cats have very precise needs. For one thing, you have to be sure that they get taurine. I think there are other requirements as well; best to look it up. The Pitcairn diet is reliable and science-based; a good place to start.

  7. Looking Forward Says:

    I use Royal Canin primarily (of course it's their veterinary line and I get it from work) with some of our leftover/extra veggies, rice, oatmeal, fruit or meat added in when appropriate. I also think Wellness, Fromm, BlueBuffalo and Evo are good too.
