Let’s face it. Pets are not cheap! One of the biggest obstacles when deciding to bring a new pet into your home can be the money. Food, treat, toys, grooming, medical care, and more all adds up! Thankfully there are some great resources online to help compare prices, find great sales, and get coupon codes. One of my favorite deal-sharing sites is Slickdeals.net.

What is Slickdeals?

Slickdeals is an online deal-sharing community, where deal-savvy members can post great discounts they have found on the web. The deals are from all kinds of different categories including electronics, housewares, clothes, and of course pets!

I first stumbled across the Slickdeals website back in college, probably around 2010, and found it as a great way to find deals on electronics, photography, and more. I have first hand found and purchased several great Groupon deals, memory cards, camera bags, clothes, and even makeup.

It has been wonderful to see the community grow over the past few years. And I’m now thrilled to see even more pet deals and discounts on Slickdeals as well!

Luna browses Slickdeals for great pet deals

Slickdeals is a bit more than just a regular deal sharing site. The community members (all 8 million of them) are truly involved with 83% returning back to the site regularly.

Not only can the members share deals, but they can also comment and vote on each deal shared. That way you can benefit from the success or failure of others’ attempts to use deals.

My favorite part of using Slickdeals is that most of the deals also include comparisons to the next best price online at the time, so it saves a lot of time in the bargain hunting process. Slickdeals also does a great job at listing expiration dates and marking deals as expired when they are no longer available.

How to Find Deals on Slickdeals

There are two main strategies to finding deals on Slickdeals. The quickest and easiest way is to view the Frontpage deals. All the deals displaying on the Frontpage are curated as the best of the best based the votes and comments by community members.

Even when I don’t have enough time to really search for deals, I can always spare a few moments to skim through the Frontpage deals. Slickdeals does a great job at indicating which deals are new since your last visit, so that you don’t have to spend a lot of time on deals you have already seen.

Find great deals on Slickdeals

The second way is to dive into all the deals behind the scenes. You can view these deals by category or search for keywords. Though there isn’t a category for pets just yet, Slickdeals is growing their savings for dogs and cats, so I would expect to see one soon! For now you can search for pets, dogs, or even you favorite pet brand. I’ve got my eye on the pack of 10 bully sticks for $10. I know Luna would love those!

On top of this, you can find local deals, coupons for popular stores, and forums to discuss deals, finances, and even tech support.
