Publix: Great Dog Treat Deals

If you are looking for stocking stuffers for your pooch or just need dog treats, keep your eyes peeled in Publix.
I found select packages of Beggin Strips that have a buy one/get one free peelie on them. I did the following deal.
Buy 2 packages @ 2/6.00. I used the buy/one get coupon plus a 1.00/2 coupon to score two bags for just 1.00/bag.

Busy bones are 2/7.00. I used the buy/one get coupon(previously on, but it's gone now), plus a 1.00/2 coupon to score two bags for 2.50 or 1.25 a package.

Then I used a 2.00 any package of Purina one treats. The coupon was a Publix coupon that expired in October, but my store takes them even if they are expired. So I was able to score another bag of treats for just 1.00!

Now, I have a few stocking stuffers plus some treats for while I am out visiting family on Thanksgiving for my pooch!

They all expire on Dec. 2 which gives you about a week to use them. These coupons are Publix coupons, combine them with a manufacturer's coupon to increase your savings!

Target has a 1.00 off any Purina One coupon here.
It is a Target coupon! Recently, there has been a LOT of discussion about Target coupons on other blogs. Target is changed their coupons to limit your prints to two each. Previously, you could print as many as you wanted. Personally, I'm not surprised by this. It sort of reminds me of when CVS started changing their coupon print policy. has quite a few dog coupons including
2.00 off any Milkbone Essential Lasting Chew(Publix has these for 3.99, after coupon 1.99!)
1.00 off any Milkbone Essential Treats
1.00 off any 4 mighty dog cans

Pet Supplies on

I read a lot of various frugal blogs in attempts to stay current on prices and deals. I find a great way to recognize if a price point is worth my time and effort is to keep current to the trends. When I kept reading about this website called, I kept thinking what is this site. Sure, there were some great deals going on with them for products I score super cheap at CVS, Wags etc. Then Frugal in Virginia had an interesting post about the site involving Swagsbucks. I found myself looking into this and the site. is website that allows you to order everyday items, name brand at that at about the same price it would cost you to drive to the store and buy them. They have dog treats and food.
Pedigree breathbusters are 2.89, that is about the exact same price at my Target. They have a wide selection of items from wet dog food to dog shampoo. You can get a 5.00 e-cert through swagbucks by redeeming 12 swagbucks. Considering it takes 45 swagbucks for a 5.00 e-cert through Amazon, that is a good deal. The offer however, is just for new members. I requested my cert, then signed up. I'll probably use my 5.00 to order dog bones. These are items you rarely if ever get coupons for unlike canned food or treats. Plus, free shipping on orders this is a deal.
Final Thoughts:
It's an interesting concept. It would be especially handy for people that do not have a CVS/Wags/Rite Aid near by to do great deals or have a local paper that provides coupons. I realize that you can buy coupons online and through ebay. However, that really only makes sense if you have a store that is close enough to utilize the coupons. It's a good way to get deals on items that rarely have coupons or sales but you use fairly often(for me this means dog bones).

It comes with a 3.50 off coupon. My Publix has it at 6.99 for a smaller size bag(5-6lbs). The coupon would bring the price down to 3.49.

Thanksgiving Hazards for your Dog

Pedigree's Newsletter had a great article about Thanksgiving Hazards for your pet. Below are some of the highlights. For the full article go here.

Never give your dog poultry bones—they can splinter easily and stick in the esophagus, stomach, or intestines.
Make sure your pet can't access food left on counters or tables. After you've cleaned the kitchen, take the garbage out and dispose of it in a secure place where no pets can get into it.
Watch the door as guests enter and leave. An open door is an invitation for a dog to flee a busy house for the world outside. So as guests arrive and leave, keep an eye on your dog—or, if he’s shy and upset by company, keep him in a quieter part of the house during noisy festivities.
