Planning to get a jump on your holiday shopping this week? Don’t forget man’s best friend — a variety of
pet retailers are offering steals and deals for the
cat sets on Black Friday. Get out there early and get Fido what he really wants for the holidays this year!
If you want to get out of the house on Friday and do some brick-and-mortar shopping, PetSmart will open at 7 a.m. with more than 2,800 items on sale, including all dog sweaters and coats (up to 50 percent off), plush cuddler beds ($7.99 on Black Friday only), and holiday toy sets for cats and dogs (starting at $2.99). These deals will be available online as well, if you prefer to shop from home.
Not ready to shop just yet? Don’t worry — PetSmart's Countdown to Christmas sale starts Dec. 16. You can check things off your list once you’ve recovered from Thanksgiving dinner and that first round of holiday guests.
Petco has terrific stocking stuffers for your pets this weekend, with 50% off Petco brand holiday dog toys and holiday rawhides. If you're looking for something fun to wrap up for Puppy or Kitty, how about a cozy something? You can score a 3' tall Petco brand Kitty Suite for $20 off, or grab a cozy coat for your puppy for $5 off. These deals are available Friday, Nov. 25, through Sunday, Nov. 27., in-store only.
Looking to stay curled up on the sofa with your favorite canine this weekend? Doctors Foster & Smith has a deal for you: On Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET, staff veterinarians will live-stream answers to your pet questions. The webcast will include prize drawings every 15 minutes, plus they’ll be offering great sale prices on a variety of pet items, both on Black Friday and Cyber Monday (Nov. 28).
Finally, if you’re looking for a bit of a splurge this holiday season, give yourself the gift of a fur-free home with a Dyson vacuum. From Friday through Monday, Nov. 28, Dyson has discounted a wide range of products ideal for pet owners, including all Air Multiplier fans and the Dyson Hot heater. But the big score is this: This weekend only, you can take home a DC28 Animal, Dyson’s most powerful, full-size bagless upright vacuum — perfect for homes with pets — for $479. That’s nearly $200 off the regular price! Bonus: You don’t have to leave home to get these great deals; shipping is free if you order from dyson.com.
If you're not a Black Friday diehard, think about scooping up the good deals on Cyber Monday. How do you know what e-tailers have the best sales? Go to CyberMonday.com and search for exactly what you want. You'll see both specific products and retailers offering online discounts. A quick search for "dogs" found some great gift ideas for your pooch, including a thunder shirt, a Sherpa Go Dog Dino dog toy and a Petstages Orka Stick dog toy. CyberMonday.com lets you compare prices from competing retailers, so you get exactly what you want for the best price — without ever leaving home.
When you're shopping for Major Grumbles, think outside the box; watch for flyers from stores that carry more than just pet supplies, like Target or Kohl's, for special pricing on pet products. And keep in mind that local pet shops will have deals and steals this weekend, too. Check Twitter feeds and Facebook pages for specials. Saturday, Nov. 26, is Small Business Saturday, so get out and support locally owned pet stores in your community and pick up something really great (and possibly totally unique) for your pet.
Do you have plans to go Black Friday shopping for your pets? What are you shopping for and where are you going? We'd love to hear what Fido is getting in his stocking.
