Its no secret that we love Chewy. I’ve been purchasing items from them for some time now. I love that they have an autoship option. This makes life so much easier for so many reasons. As a Chewy Influencer, I received 2 containers of Tidy Cat litter for review. With two cats, a dog and a hamster in the house, we are constantly buying food and litter. I’m going to let you in on a secret though. Chewy autoship saves money and back pain!
When using autoship, you can set for your items to be shipped at different variables which is perfect. You can set it up and then if you find you need it more or less often change the timing. This is great for when you’re purchasing big items like the cat litter or the huge bags of food.This is also how you’re going to save yourself back pain. Lets be honest bags of food and cat litter jugs are heavy. Lifting them and out of the cart at the store, lifting them and out of the car, carrying from car to the house it all causes strain on your back, arms, legs and more. But with autoship, those big heavy items are shipped directly to your door. While you still have to carry it into the house one time lifting it into the house is a lot less strain than all the lifting from the store/car.
But can Chewy autoship really save you money?
Well I did some comparison shopping. I headed to Walmart to look at the cost of the same litter that we received. I happen to only use Tidy Cats as it is the only kind the cats will use.
As you can see one container of litter is 8.99. Now I wanted to take in the idea of shipping so that I wouldn’t have to deal with the pain. Remember I received a case of litter so 2 jugs.
I added 2 to the Walmart cart and then added in my shipping costs.
While I can grab two jugs at the local Walmart, that does require me to drive there, lift it and invariably grab items that I don’t really need. So my total was $25.05 with taxes and shipping.
$18.67. While this does include a 30% off for my first order, I have to say that this is only for my litter. For my personal account, we have litter, cat food and dog food on autoship. Since they all come at the same time our shipping is free. So let’s see what that order would look like:
So having our regular products autoshipped each month saves us $21.97 each month and a total of $263.64 each year. Even if you don’t chose Chewy Autoship, they have so many other products that are fantastic and prices are usually cheaper.
