Do your dogs have their own Christmas stockings? Mine do, and each features his or her name in fuzzy felt letters above a photo taken with Santa. Needless to say, my pups rank high on my holiday shopping list.
With that in mind, I went in search of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. I found five, including two exclusive offers for members of the Dogster community.
I love the design-inspired products at daily deal website LeLe Pets, and thanks to an exclusive offer for Dogster readers, I will do more than window-shop this weekend. We all can use the promo code “Dogster” during checkout Friday, Nov. 23, through Sunday, Nov. 25, to get 25 percent off an entire order!
Among the items that will be available:
This DoggySnooze HighDiner elevated feeder regularly costs $129 for a medium and $149 for a large, but the Dogster discount will knock those down to $77 and $89, respectively.
Kyjen’s Star Spinner puzzle toy regularly runs $24.99, but the promo code will reduce it to $14.99.
The PetEgo Chicky Bowl — it’s shaped like a drumstick! — regularly costs $21, but you will pay just $12.60 this weekend.
And don’t forget the pet-themed wrapping paper from Papergirl Designs. It regularly runs $10, but LeLe Pets will let Dogster readers have it for just $6.50.
UPDATE: For Cyber Monday through Wednesday, LeLe Pets will give 10% of the purchase price back in LeLeBugs, essentially a credit to your account, plus free shipping on orders totaling $50 or more.
DoggyLoot daily deals deliver up 75 percent off amazing products for dogs, as well as free shipping. Black Friday weekend will be no exception, and the website will double its number of offers on Monday and include holiday items.
DoggyLoot also has a deal for the Dogster community: Sign up for a DoggyLoot account and receive a $5 credit toward your first order.
Among the many items that will be available:
Three bags of Grandma Lucy’s Lamb Blend Trail Mix will cost just $25, reduced from the regular price of $53, Friday through Sunday. The all-natural freeze-dried treats feature lamb, sweet potato, banana, and apple as ingredients.
Get the Kyjen Holiday Squeaker Mat for only $14, down from $24, on Monday. You will have a choice of cow, squirrel, hedgehog, or sheep.
My pups love Himalayan Dog Chews, but boy, are they pricey. DoggyLoot will have them in a variety of sizes starting at $16 for two packs, which regularly cost $23, on Monday. These all-natural and long-lasting chews contain yak- and cow-milk products but not chemicals and preservatives.
Pet retailer Doctors Foster and Smith will put its entire Private Label collection on sale Friday through Monday, Nov. 23 through 26, reducing items by up to 25 percent. Such savings allow you to get a high-ticket item, such as the Deluxe Orthopedic Pad shown above, for significantly less. The bed regularly costs $69.99 to $129.99 depending on size, but will run $52.49 through $97.49 during the sale.
PetSmart takes Black Friday and Cyber Monday quite seriously. Discounts of 75 percent on select products have already kicked in online, and 50 percent off will apply to a variety of items both in stores and online at various times through Nov. 29.
It would be impossible to list every savings opportunity here, so let’s focus on just one: the Sunbeam Gourmet Dog Treat Maker Julia Szabo wrote about last month, shown above. It will be just $19.99 in stores Friday (and online Thursday and Friday), down from its regular price of $29.99. In-store savings require a PetPerks membership card. For full details about the many days of savings, view the ad for your local PetSmart store.
The savings at Petco also will be significant, but what I’m really excited about are the free antlers for dogs available Friday when you swipe your Pals Rewards membership card during an in-store purchase.
Also expect to see 50 percent off EIEIO beds, Petco coats, JW toys, and many other items Friday through Sunday, Nov. 23 through 25, both online and in stores. See the PetCo’s Black Friday ad for more on-sale items.
Do you know of any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals for dog lovers? If so, please share them in the comments for your fellow pet parents! Also, be sure to stop by your neighborhood mom-and-pop pet-supply shops this weekend. It’s Small Business Saturday on Nov. 24, and many will be celebrating with discounts and special treats for you and your pups.
