Tuesday Review

Hey there! We were asked by the nice people at Mr. Chewy.com to try out their website and let them and the world know what we think. How cool is that? www.mrchewy.com is an online pet food retailer offering more than 70 brands of pet food, treats and supplies. Since food was involved, we encouraged mom to agree. She went online and found one of the foods we eat, Wellness Grain Free Chicken. Mom ordered and we waited.

We ended up waiting quite awhile. Mom put in our order on a Sunday and we promptly got an email confirmation of our order and letting us know it shipped. We were provided a tracking number. When mom checked out the tracking it said the package would arrive on Friday, but it did not arrive until Saturday.

When it arrived, it was well packed. We particularly loved the paper inside, but we're cats...what do you expect?

The cans were in purrfect condition.

Yup, that's our stuff! Mom was particularly pleased to see such a good selection of high quality foods.

We of course loved the box.

Here's our opinion:
1. Delivery for us was slow. We think this is because the shipment came from Pennsylvania and we live in Oregon, so the food was traveling a long way. Not a big surprise that it took more time than our east coast furriends have experienced.
2. Price- for the Wellness canned food, the prices were VERY comparable to our local well priced store. We typically also buy the large cans of Tiki cat but since Mr. Chewy didn't have it (only the small cans) we couldn't compare the price on that.
3. Selection- We all thought that there was lots of wonderful foods to choose from, all the good brands that we would want. Our only issue was that mom will only buy us the large cans of everything. They had the large cans of Wellness Cat food, but did not have the large cans of Tiki. We meowed this to their representative and we will purr that it gets added to the website soon.
4. Convenience- When mom ordered our food, she was getting over being sick. She was thinking how awesome it was that she could get food delivered when she wasn't feeling well enough to go shopping. In addition, if you live in an area where you are not close to a store that stocks your favorite brands of food, getting it shipped to you is a good thing, especially since shipping is free for orders over $49.   With 9 of us kitties and a woofie, it's easy to spend over $49.

5.  Referral program-  This is awesome.  They have a referral program and our referral code is:

CORY37

If you use this code when checking out, you'll get 10% off of your order (first time customers, one per household).  But that's not all!  For every new furriend that orders Mr. Chewy will donate $10 to a partner animal supporting charity. 



So, overall we think Mr. Chewy is pawsome and we thank them for the opportunity to review their website and service.
We did receive our shipment of food in exchange for our meowing our opinions.

We're sort of surprised it took that long for you too. Were there storms delaying the departure? We got ours quite quickly here in Seattle too. Of course it wasn't over night but I think it was only three or four days--sooner than I expected.

Great review....we've been reading lots of good things about Mr. Chewy lately. We got an invitation from them as well to try them out in exchange for review...we just haven't gotten around to it yet.

We are really interested in trying Tiki...have heard so many good comments about it! I can get by with the small cans since I don't have to share. : )

Great review! Very informative. We've been thinking about using Mr. Chewy. We're from Pennsylvania so maybe it may not take so long? Hmm. Just maybe we'll have to find out.

We like your review! We ordered from Mr Chewy too. We're in CA and it took a week for our delivery to reach us also. We sure like the speedy processing of our order tho, and the good selection. Purrs,

That was a good review. We liked Mr. Chewy too...he had a good selection of foods and the prices were very good. We are surprised that your order took so long to get to you. Did you mention that to the representative? Maybe it's something they can look into. Though we do understand about the east coast/west coast thing...when ever we order anything from CA, it takes forever!

It sounds like a nice site. We especially love the donation part of it! We have a question, though. Do they have any prescription or specialty foods available? We eat Hill's Prescription c/d at our house. Thank you for mewing your opinions! :)

It is very convenient to shop online! We checked out the website but sadly Mr. Chewy does not deliver in Canada.

Although we live outside of the US, your item has made us think about ordering Kizzie's food from a website in our country, as it seems to be a convenient and cost effective way of buying her food.

It is hard for my Mommie to carry in the heavy packages of our food because of her naughty back. Delivery might be a good option for us.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

We are so envious! You are so lucky to have Mr Chewy. Even if delivery took longer than expected.
We think that box AND paper is pawsome!

Thank you so much for this furtastic review! We're so glad you enjoyed your experience with Mr. Chewy!

We sincerely apologize about the length of time it took to receive your order. Since we ship FedEx ground from PA, your area has the longest estimated shipping time of 5 business days :( Sometimes it arrives quicker, depending on the day it ships and barring any delays while in transit, of course. However, we are looking to open a warehouse on the west coast sometime in the future, so hopefully that will solve the problem!

Thank you again for the wonderful review, and please feel free to call, chat or email us if you ever have questions or need assistance. We're always here and happy to help!

Mr. Chewy is a popular dude these days!!! We have signed up to win $50 worth free! We saw that they had Wellness, and we like that. also we saw that there were some interesting treats. Hopefully we will win so we can order up some good stuff.

I like that Mr. Chewy will donate $10 to a partner animal supporting charity. This is good work to giving money help to animal charity.Good work

We recently received a 2nd order from Mr Chewy and all arrived in good shape. But we find it a bit odd that (as we see also in your box) there is no padding on the bottom or sides.

Regardless, we have set up a regular automatic delivery schedule.
