The last day of February I got an e-mail....
My name is Brent Rangen, and I’m e-mailing you on behalf of MrChewy.com, an online pet food retailer offering over 70 brands of pet food, treats and supplies.
I’ve noticed that your blog is very witty. I love how you put captions on every picture! I would love to provide you with a $50 credit for use on MrChewy.com so that you can evaluate our online shopping experience. This is a no strings offer; if you decide to review MrChewy.com we want an honest opinion.
I hope you'll consider writing something about MrChewy.com! Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
We have had a couple of bloggers use their promo code for contest sponsorship, which would be something you can feel free to do as well.
Would you be interested in participating in this opportunity?
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
I wrote back introducing Elvira Mistress of Felinity, and I, and what we do here, further, thanking him for his compliment, and accepting the offer. :-D
On March 8th I spent time on the site, and placed an order, getting it delivered to our home earlier in the week.
Mr. Chewy sells over 70 brands of Dog and Cat food, & treats, plus Cat litter, Flea & Tick fighting treatments, and Potty Pads.
The good thing is athat shipping is free for purchases of $49 or more, and there is also a "Refer Your Friends Donation Program that benefits 3 charities:
Bideawee (Providing shelter, care and compassion to homeless animals since 1903!)
It is very easy to register to order from the site, and, very easy to explore the different depts. before you even decide to do so, or decide to order if already registered.
Let's take Cat Treats, for instance...
A click on the words, at the top of the main page, takes you to the first page of that section.
There are 10 brands to choose from, and you can see how many product choices are associated with each, beofre deciding to click on it.
Furthermore choices are also listed under 11 "Specialty" descriptions for type of Treat.
If you don't want to use those sidebars, the products are already dispalyed to look at, and click on, over 2 pages, complete with descriptions, and 1-5 star ratings (You can also read product reviews if purchasers left any)
Take, for example, the Dried Bonito Flakes...
Click on the image, and yopu are taken to its page, where you can order a 1 oz. container, or a 4 oz. bag, and are told if the item is in stock, given a description of the product, and read 2 customer reviews, in this case by Humans, and not their Cats, but still sharing how enthusiastic the Cats were over the product. :-D
I remedied the apparent lack of reviews by actual cats by writng a review of the Bonito Flakes based on my experience with a container of the same product Daddy had recently bought in Long Beach, so we didn't have to open the one we ordered. :-D
You choose your quatity, and click on Add to Cart...
You can continue shopping, edit your cart, or head to Check Out.
Shopping today you could even save 15%, or even enter a promotion code to get related discounts, at check out.
Since you have registered your shipping, and payment method (CC), info is listed, and your grand total is displayed, at Check Out.
You can even set up a delivery schedule from every 2 wks. to every 14 wks., and save money.
Click submit, and you are done.
There are customer service via Phone Numbers, e-mail, and Live Chat.
I found this all very easy, and fun, and didn't even need Daddy Kiril to explain anything to me. :-D
One final note to add: For some they don't sell in sizes they might buy and their prices may seem high. But some are willing to pay for the convenience of having it delivered, and so consider it a good deal.
The company is popular, and growing, and building a following, that's for sure. :-D
Visit the Mr. Chewy Website, here. (Link updated 2013!)
As you can see we got a lot, for $50.
We have plans for most of the swag, related to something new that Daddy bought us, that we will need the help of Felinity Assembled on something related to it.
