Here’s a better deal than PetSmart’s autoship program for dog food. Easy, purchase and use Sam’s Club Gift Cards for PetSmart. It saves you money and stretches your monthly budget. The same goes for beauty queens shopping at Ulta. With two Labrador Retrievers gobbling up dog food in our house as well as an avid Ulta shopper, we save hundreds per year using Sam’s Club Gift Cards. You can too.
Sam’s Club Gift Cards Hack
PetSmart $100 Value Gift Cards are available for $79.98. That’s a 20% discount. The limit is 5 gift card purchases per membership providing a total savings of $100 (if you buy 5). We get $500 of dog food from PetSmart for less than $400. Note we also get 2% cash-back from our credit card company and up to 8% cash back shopping at Sam’s Club online from Rakuten (online browser cash-back extension). It appears we got 1% cash-back for the gift card purchases and 6% for other purchases at Sam’s Club from the Rakuten kick-back.

I hope this helps you spend wisely and stretch your monthly budget. It’s another beautiful day in the neighborhood, enjoy!
Received both company gift cards in the mail last week.
Round 1: $100 worth of gift cards for PetSmart (cost $80) and $110 worth of gift cards for Ulta (cost $96) from Sam’s Club.
Gift cards value total: $210
Total cost at Sam’s Club = $176
Savings from Sam’s Club: $34
Cash back (credit card & Rakuten): ~$6
Total saved/made: ~$40 in less than 15 mins.
Think of it as making the equivalent of ~$160/hr. for your time.
60 mins./hr. divided by 15 mins. = 4; 4 x $40 = $160/hr.
Again, you can buy 5 PetSmart gift cards and 10 Ulta gift cards per membership at Sam’s Club.
