Since I am taking Pepper (the Golden Retriever puppy) to Puppy Training at Petco we went early on Monday to walk around the store. There was a Clearance Rack by the front door so I checked it out. There were several large, average chew Kong Dental toys marked at $12.00 and $9.00 each. I didn’t know what the original price was, but I thought $9.00 was a deal since I had a $5.00 Pals Reward to spend.
After training I went and bought the Kong Dental toy and found out it was $1.50 + tax! I was told they didn’t have time to remark the clearance prices.
So, on Wednesday I went into Petco again (by myself) to see if I could find at least another Kong toy. Well, I found another Kong Dental marked as $9.00, a VIP Tuffy JR’s Red Bone toy marked as $8.00 AND they added the dog backpacks we had looked at last Friday night (by using one Pepper will be able to carry her own water and snacks on a hike). The dog backpack was marked as $42.00, but I hoped it would scan for less.
So, here is everything I bought between both days:
(2) Large Kong Dental toys originally $18.99 each scanned at $1.50 each
(1) VIP Junior Red Bone toy originally $11.99 scanned at $1.00
(1) Large dog backpack originally $49.99 scanned at $12.00
Total cost at the original price: $99.96
Scanned price: $16.00 (84% off the original price)
Minus $10.00 in Pal Rewards
Total I paid (plus tax): $6.00 (actually paid 6% of the original price with my Pal Rewards plus tax)
That is the best deal I have gotten in a long time!
Lesson learned: If there is something you want it pays to at least to get the item scanned to see if it the clearance price has changed.
So, I would love to hear about the bargains you find. Later – H
