Cat food.

Monday, 4 January, 2010

I rescind my endorsement of K9 Cuisine.

Last week I returned to K9 Cuisine to order more “Nature’s Variety Homestyle from the Prairie Nutrition for Cats” in cans. The price had jumped up $7 per case, although shipping remains without charge for orders over $50. This price is more than I paid by the can when I went into Whitey to acquire a now-lost tag while I wait a few weeks ago.

The order would have come to just under $120 for three cases.

I returned to Whitey today just to by supplemental quantities of cat food. While there it dawned upon me that Tomlinson’s has a loyalty program which I never bothered to enroll because I only spent $20 there every couple of months. They carry my canned food of choice, and both dry foods; I switch kibbles as they run out. For the record they are Solid Gold Katz-n-Flocken and Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain Feline Formula.

I found three cases of Homestyle, one of each of the varieties I use, stacked ready to go. It was a sign.

I did not know Tomlinson’s did case discounts. They do. 10%. I signed up for the loyalty program for $5 and saved an additional 10% ($11) on the entire purchase. My $120 internet order dropped to $91, after punitive Texas sales tax, and I have the food right now.

So, yeah, go local. Stop trying to get out of it, Stan.

    hmmm. I guess this makes sense if you go JUST by price.

    I don’t shop at K9cuisine for the price. I shop because 1) they have awesome customer service. that in itself is so rare these days!) 2) I don’t have to drive. It saves me time.

    If I look at it from a time, efficiency, and customer care standpoint – K9Cuisine is still my favorite.
