Frequent Buyer Programs
Buy 12 items of the same selected brand, size and format of premium dog food, cat food, small animal food or hay at any Pet Valu, Paulmac's, Bosley's, Tisol or Total Pet location and get the 13th item free. The Your Rewards/VIP Plus™ Frequent Buyer program is restricted to the participating brands and in accordance with the sizes, formats and qualifying purchase periods. Free item will be awarded after purchase of your 12th item. If a member is purchasing their 12th item plus their 13th item in the same transaction, the free item cannot be awarded in the same transaction. A separate, subsequent transaction will be required to receive the free item.
Free items must be redeemed in store. Currently, online item redemption is not available. Once a free item has been earned, the free item credit must be used within 6 months from that date. The item credit will expire regardless of recent transactional history. The entitlement to free item has no cash value. All item purchases will be recorded at the time of purchase. All returned item purchases will be deducted from your accrual total.
Dog food, cat food, small animal food and hay purchases may not be combined. Trial sizes and free items received as part of other promotions or contests are not eligible for this program.

How does the Frequent Buyer program work?
Buy 12 items of the same select brand and size of dog food, cat food, select small animal food or select hay at any Pet Valu, Paulmac’s, Bosley’s, Tisol or Total Pet location and get one item free. The free item will be in the same size category as all previous purchases. In-store and online purchases count toward your total balance. See our Benefits page to review brands in the program – The list of participating brands keeps growing!
Do I have to purchase the 12 items within a certain amount of time?
Yes and no! Some brands have expiry periods and require purchases to be made within a certain time frame to receive the 13th free. For example, 12 bags of Performatrin Ultra must be purchased within 36 months to receive the 13th free. See our Terms and Conditions for participating brands’ expiration periods.
