If you’re one of the 74 percent of pet owners planning to get their dog or cat a present this Christmas (according to Wellness), there are probably a few things you’ve been considering for awhile. Sure, there are the adorable doggie Christmas sweaters and things of that nature, but you might also be considering larger purchases. You can buy a sweater for your dog any old time, but what about a treat-tossing pet cam? Or an automatic feeder?
Pet tech falls into the category of a big ticket item, so waiting for Christmas to grab something you’ve had your eye on makes sense. Lots of families save buying the cash-intensive items for this time of year because it makes the day feel a little bit special. More than that, though, the deals that happen during the holiday shopping season mean you can get them for cheaper than you could any other time of the year. Our Amazon Cyber Monday pet deals focus first on pet devices that make live easier for both owner and pet, which we’ll augment with other deals as we find them throughout the day.
If you haven’t yet, you might consider starting a 30 day free trial of Prime now so you’re covered during the shopping season. This will ensure quick and cheap shipping as the deadlines get closer. It’s only Cyber Monday, so you’ve got plenty of time, but this will come in handy if you decide to return something and need a replacement. The deadline for free Prime two-day shipping is December 22nd, and you can check out the rest of the shipping deadlines here.
