24-Hour Giveaway: Kroger Pet Insurance and a Chance to Win a $25 Kroger Gift Card

by Tara Kuczykowski on December 29, 2009 · 372 comments

PetFirst Healthcare Kroger Health Insurance

Complementing the selection of quality pet food and supplies in Kroger stores, Kroger Personal Finance (KPF) brings together a wide array of quality financial products and services from preferred providers for Kroger customers and their furry family members, including a new “accident only” pet insurance policy for just $9.95/month per pet.

To most pet owners, pets are family too! When pets get sick or injured, most of us are willing to spend almost whatever it takes to get them back on all four feet, but the price of veterinary care does not come cheap. As a matter of fact, according to the American Pet Products Association (APPA) vet bills last year in the U.S. topped $11 billion. For this reason, pet insurance policies are on the rise.

Kroger Pet Insurance coverage starts at just $9.95 for an accident-only plan and includes plans with up to $12,000 worth of annual coverage per pet. Sign up in Kroger's stores or online!

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a $25 Kroger gift card to pamper their furry friend! To enter, tell us how you save money on the costs of owning a pet!

2 Heather R December 29, 2009 at 11:02 pm

I save money on treats. My dog doesn't like most treats, so we purchase very few treats.

My best pet saving strategy is not to have a pet at all! :)

Seriously, I am entering this for my sister-in-law who has an adorable pup!

I have a ten-year old Daschund mix we rescued from a kill shelter. I have read about the Kroger pet insurance, there are brochures by every register. My mother has Alzheimers and the dog keeps her going most days. Bridgette is too old now for pet insurance, most of her conditions are pre-existing, but what I do to save money, is when I buy treats, I buy soft ones and cut them in quarters, so they are smaller and go further and my daughter has a dog so we check prices and buy large size bags if they are cheaper and share the price.

My strategy for saving money on my pets is all about feeding them the best food I can. I have had pets who have had many problems that land them at the vet over and over that were all food related. We buy our food in the large bags so that we get the lower price but we do not compromise on the quality of our food. Our cats are very healthy!

WOW...I could really use this one! I have 16 rescued dogs and nine rescued cats. Our vet probably sees us on a more regular basis than his own family!

20 Shannon December 30, 2009 at 2:45 am

I use coupons, store loyalty cards, attend free pet parties or events when possible for coupons, samples or treats & make friends with my vet. :-D We try to take really good care of them too as we don't want them to get sick, if at all possible. They are like our kids.

My cats have to have special food due to health issues. I buy the big bag that is cheaper per lb. It makes my day when there is a coupon available for their brand of food. :)

I use coupons when I can, and I use the same vet I've used for 20 years. She's reasonably priced, and will let you pay in payments for larger bills!
thanks for the chance to win!

Savings on pet care are a challenge for me (allergies...the dogs, not me). I feed them quality food and use coupons when available.

Coupons, stocking up when I find a great deal and using dog food as treats! She still thinks she is getting a treat.

35 Sandi Shealy December 30, 2009 at 8:36 am

I have 1 dog and 5 cats...I use coupons and sales together....these animals can be very expensive! But, I wouldnt trade them for the world!

I don't have a pet anymore but I use to buy food when it goes on sale and use coupons and stock up when I find a really good deal.

39 Kassie Kulb December 30, 2009 at 9:34 am

I save by buying all of my pet supplies in bulk. I purchased air-tight containers once and they have lasted for months!

40 Sol December 30, 2009 at 9:39 am

This is the first year ever that we have had a dog, and I was worried about the cost of food, but there are so many coupons out there that I usually get it for free! My sister-in-law is also an expert groomer, so we don't spend any money on that either. :)

Sometimes when money is tight or I can't get to Sam's club I'll actually make my dogs' food. We buy huge sacks of rice(that we eat as well) and then I'll cook up a huge batch & mix in chicken bones or porkchop bones from our meals. We have 3 pitbulls with large appetites, so its great that I can save money on them when needed. - amm2ep at virginia dot edu

I always buy clearanced treats at target... or wait for coupons. For food I am a petpals reward at petco and after so many bags you get a free bag of food.

I save money on my precious pooch by taking turns hitting the different Petsmarts/Petcos in my area on Saturdays when the pet food company reps are out with coupons. I go to a few different ones so that they don't see me all the time, but I can stock up on coupons for the expensive food which is of course the only kind I can get my finicky (but wonderful) dog to eat. I also always check out the discounted bins for toys and chews.

50 Rachel December 30, 2009 at 10:23 am

Also- I'm a RSS subscriber via my google reader and have been for a while. Thanks for your blog! I've gotten so many great tips and coupons from your site.
