Mr. Chewy – review
A few weeks ago, Brent from MrChewy.com contacted me with a coupon that I could use to spend on Mr. Chewy products in exchange for a Boogie blog review, so this is it! My honest thoughts and all.
Mr. Chewy is a home-delivery pet food store.
Mr. Chewy delivers pet happiness by conveniently shipping 70+ brands of pet food and stuff (for free!) while ensuring at-risk animals’ lives are improved across the planet.
I have been receiving monthly shipments from Petflow for a year now so I am familiar with the concept of ordering dog food in bulk and having it delivered with free shipping. SO MUCH CHEAPER than buying from the local pet store. *For treats and fresh food items, I still get these at the pet store/supermarket.
Buying in bulk is not without its challenges. It took a couple of months for me to work out how many bags of food Boogie would need per month. In the beginning, I under-ordered and had to return to the local pet store anyway, paying the higher prices. And if there were any shipping delays (in Petflow’s teething stages) or inconsistencies with processing & shipping times, I found myself in the same predicament. I also found myself rescheduling my shipments closer together or over-ordering to make up for these problems.
My first impression of Mr. Chewy: They carry a great range of dog food brands. All the ones Boogie and I like: The Honest Kitchen, Halo, Stella & Chewy’s, Zuke training treats. I love the way their products are categorized on the website – you can pick specialty diets (gluten-free, grain-free, limited ingredient etc) and different food forms (Canned, dry, dehydrated or food roll) Very easy to browse.
Secondly, I notice that though they carry less brands than Petflow, their food prices are cheaper than Petflow’s! With free shipping, this is a bargain.
I placed my order last week, received my Fed Ex tracking number which had delivery scheduled for 1 week later, and am pleased to report that the order arrived on time.
Will I be ordering from Mr. Chewy again?
Here is my honest answer.
YES, if they weren’t located in Pennsylvannia or on the East Coast, or if they were closer to me. I am on the West Coast so it makes more sense for me to continue ordering from Petflow – who ship from Nevada in only a few days. (Easier for me to edit my order at the last minute if I need to) For East Coast folks or anyone who doesn’t care about instant gratification, YES I would recommend Mr. Chewy. Great selection and prices.
Hint to Mr. Chewy: Could you please carry bully sticks and Bravo training treats?
