Price checking pet food

If you are one of the many people who pick up your dog or cat food at the grocery store along with people food, you might just be surprised that this is one of the most expensive places to purchase pet food. Where should you be shopping? Believe it or not, Walmart and Target offer the best deals on many types of non-specialty dog and cat food. Also be sure to check out places like PetSmart as well.

Don't be afraid to phone around to pet stores in your area, including the big box type pet supply stores to price check items. It can be a little bit harder to get prices over the phone at Walmart and Target, but check the pricing there next time you stop by to shop.

Many people find they will save about 20% off their pet food bills by shopping at Walmart or Target.

Don't forget to check the bulk pricing too. While it is often the better deal, always check the unit price to be sure, to make sure you don't get burned because the smaller quanity was on sale or happened to be bought at a discount recently.
