Couponing is a great way to save money, especially in harder times! Vet bills and what not can become crazy expensive, so it is good to save money where you can with your pets!

Petco’s and Petsmart’s Store Circular (Specials) are bi-monthly–meaning they only come out every two weeks and they last for two weeks. So unlike your local grocery store or your local pharmacies, you don’t have to worry about rushing over to get the deals as they will be around for quite some time!

Links to Petco’s Store Circular and Petsmart’s In-store Specials are below.

So check back here regularly to look for deals. Or contact floppycats.com if you have any suggestions.

Refund Cents, one of the websites floppycats.com readers go to often, it offers very valuable savings insight from women and men that have been savings hundreds of dollars a month for years. There is everything from a complete list of current cpns from Sunday papers (all the inserts–like Red Plum, SmartSource and P&G), how do double your deals at CVS Pharmacy and Walgreens as well as other stores. There are a number of subscription options, like $30 for two years of access to the website! No matter what subscription option you choose, you will earn your money back in no time at all (probably about 1 week) through the knowledge you acquire from this site. Since the website is subscription based, there is a link below, if you’re interested in signing up for it. Or contact floppycats.com if you have suggestions.
