Unconventional Discount Dog Food Finding Methods

by Luke Blaise

By taking advantage of discount dog food you can generally save quite a bit of money. However this type of pet food is not always easily found and you do have to put in the footwork in order to find it.

If you truly want to find discount dog food here are five tips to help make it easier for you to save you a lot of money.

1. Close to Expired

Buying pet products that are just recently expired or close to being expired can be a great way to save a lot of money. Many grocery stores and pet stores lose money whenever they have bags of food expire. Many of them will willingly give you a big discount if you simply ask the manager for them.

2. Buy in Bulk

Buying in bulk is another great way to save money. If you have a lot of dogs this is great for option, but what if you only have one dog? If you only have one dog, refrigerating or freezing pet food greatly extends its shelf life beyond the expiration date on the bag.

3. Farm & Ranch Stores

Another great way to save money is to shop at farm and ranch stores. Generally these stores have larger bags of food then what is found in grocery stores and because of this you often get more food for your dollar.

4. Co-ops

By joining a local co-op you can also have access to discounted products as well. Just like with farm and ranch stores, co-ops generally by their pet food in bulk.

5. Promotions

Another way to save money is to match up promotions with coupons. By doing this you tend to supercharge your discount. This is because by buying discounted food on promotion and by using a coupon you can save even more money.

These are just a few ways that you can find discount dog food. If you use your imagination, you could probably come up with a lot more. But these are the main ones that I tend to use.
