About MrChewy.com (as taken from the site):
Just an average dog with big dreams…
We asked ourselves: Can we create a household brand and sustainable business that will allow us to pursue our passion for helping animals? From that question, Mr. Chewy is born.
My Experience with MrChewy.com:
I’ve been an animal lover all my life and have had a dog or cat that was considered part of the family for as long as I can remember. I wouldn’t have it any other way, as you can probably tell by how many times I mention my cats in my posts and that I recently even started a cat blog. Since I don’t have any human children at this point in my life, my cats are definitely spoiled and given lots of attention. While I want to give them the highest quality products I can, I also want to be money savvy about it of course.
To me, part of being money savvy is also about time and convenience management. Buying cat food, litter, treats, etc. in bulk is a definite money saver, but it’s not usually a time nor back saver as I’m sure we all know. That’s why I was happy to be able to review MrChewy.com. First of all, I really love that the Mr. Chewy site is very clean and easy navigate. Some other well-known online pet supplies stores are drowning in items and images hoping to catch your eye, but here you can easily find what you came to look for in the first place. The second thing that I of course check out are product costs and how much it is going to cost to be shipped to me. I’ve found so many great deals on cat food and treats in the past, but finding out I then have to pay $20 in shipping because of the weight is quite the downer. However, at Mr. Chewy, it is all smiles and tail wags because not only will you get 15% off storewide (without even needing a coupon code), you’ll also get FREE 1-2 day shipping as long as your order is $49+. This is great if you’re like me and tend to wait till the last minute to do your shopping only to discover the poor cats are already nearly out of food. You can even set up a subscription delivery so you never have to worry about running out of supplies.
To facilitate my review, I was given a $50 gift card to use and was able to score a huge box of cat litter and 8 bags of cat treats that was shipped to me in 2 days for under $50. Everything was packed snuggly in the shipping box without any leaks, tears, or crushed treats. My back (and boyfriend) was also thanking me for not having to lug a heavy box of cat litter around everywhere. All of the items were fresh and without dents, which is something I have not always had luck with in the past when shopping for pet care items online.
As I mentioned before, the site is very clean and easy to navigate, so I was able to find the items I was looking for and be checked out in under 10 minutes, which is definitely a lot faster (and easier) than it takes to go to the local big box or warehouse store. I also love that they have the healthier, and usually more expensive, brand names like Wellness, Natural Balance and Blue Buffalo, that you can purchase without breaking the bank. My only “pet peeve” about the site is that I would have liked to see some cat toys or nip to purchase. However, once I saw that you can refer your friends to shop there, which gets them 10% off and Mr. Chewy will also donate $10 to a partner charity of your choice, I gave my full approval!
Final Takeaway: I really enjoyed my shopping experience at Mr. Chewy and look forward to shopping there regularly. I just love finding places where you can spend money and time wisely, and where they also give back. My cats also give their meows of approval!
