calling all et parents - how to make your life easier



Want to make your life easier?  

So, do you just dread lugging heavy bags of dog or cat food from the shelf to the buggy, from the buggy to the car, and from the car to your pet’s storage area?


There is a better way, I promise.


I personally have been using this method for over 2 years without 1 glitch!


It’s called Chewy’s Auto Ship Program and it is simply wonderful.


Every 8 weeks or so, I get my cats’ and dogs’ food delivered right to my front door.   I simply set the items I want to be delivered and how often and “walla”, the rest is pure magic!

Chewy's auto ship program with boxes at your front door.


If on occasion, I want to throw in an extra item OR remove an item OR change the timing of the delivery, OR just simply cancel auto-ship (but I can’t imagine why in the world you would ever want to), it's super duper easy to do too.

And a shout out to Chewy’s awesome customer service.    One time, Chewy was out of stock for my cat’s food but instead of holding my auto-ship until they had more in, listen to what they did!.

The customer service representative gave me a phone call…explained that they were out and asked if they could ship the next size up of the food (but for the same price).    Of course, this was a better deal for me, hands down.   I said yes!!!    

Instead of just throwing the bag in the shipment, they took the time to explain the situation and to let me know what they would like to do.   This was so thoughtful of Chewy and pretty much won me over to their Autoship program.    They were that concerned about changing my auto-ship order, even if it was for the better.    

Another perk is that you save great $$$ when on auto-ship with Chewy.   When you choose to order this way, you save 5% - 10% on each item!    Let me tell you, these savings add up really fast.   


Check out my savings since I've been on auto-ship...

That's 2 big bags of FREE pet food for me!


And did I mention Chewy gives 1-2 day free shipping on orders $49 or more?    This adds even more to your savings and gets it to you crazy fast!  


Chewy has free 1-2 day shipping



I can wait 'till almost the bottom of the food bag and change my shipment to say “ship now” and I literally have the food at my door in 2 days normally.    Of course, you can’t wait until you run completely out of food but if you're toward the end, you can still get the auto-ship to you so fast using the “ship now” feature.


Chewy has a Ship Now button for the autoship program.




Are you ready to join Chewy's Autoship too?     You won’t regret a minute of getting your pet’s food like this.     I can’t think of one reason why you wouldn’t want to try this program out for yourself!

Oh wait, I almost forgot to tell you this.    When you join, you save 30% off of first AutoShip order!!  


Is that crazy or what?    


Even if you cancel later (because you’re delusional to how great it is..ha ha), you’ve saved an amazing amount of moolah on your pet’s food!

Worried about how you’re going to handle these heavy boxes of food dumped at your front door?  


Well, I get two really large bags of food delivered.   There is no way I can pick up this heavy box!  


So, I just open it outside and unload the contents one by one.   At that point, it's no different than getting the bag of food out of my car from a visit to the pet store.

Click anywhere in your AutoShip section to see details.

From the details screen, you can view past auto-ship order details, change your frequency, change when the next shipment is sent, or add/change/delete items that are in your AutoShip!



There is even a big orange & white  “Ship Now” button on this screen to start your next AutoShip shipment now!    I have found this is useful if my estimated timing is off for when to ship next.   


It may take you several months to dial into the perfect schedule for shipping.    It's hard to know at first because most of us aren't keeping up with how often we buy our pet's food.
