      I’m having the same problem

    • Kymmi2471

      Cant get it to work.. bummer

    • Foxygardner

      It’s not the link that’s the problem. The science diet website is down. They’re probably bombarded.

    • LMO378

      ALL we know is something is not working. When you pretty much offer free dog food you should be ready to get busy, DAH

    • Jcgulfshorescondos

      Just tried, cat food link won’t work. I hope they extend this until tomorrow.

    • Staci_marie

      Good for donating…  And if you can find a $2/10 Petco coupon – you can probably find a cheap $1 item to get the catfood free.  (Petsmart takes competitor Qs.)

    • Sally

      The site is functioning now, albeit VERY slowly.  Have some patience.

      • Sally

        My own patience is running out. :)  SLOWWWW….

    • ReneeB

      It IS working…. just REALLY slow…. PAINFULLY slow!!  It took me 22 mins to get from registration to actually print the coupons…. and you get 5 coupons of different amounts in the end (only one $8. one, though)… I was able to use the back button and print them twice…… but you HAVE to be patient!! 

      • ReneeB

         I should add that I was getting the dog coupons… don’t know about the cat ones…. hth

    • Lakeskia

      I’m not seeing the $8 Coupon. Just $7.

      • Pneuma922

         that’s what i get too!

    • Hckyluver

      Thank you!  My elderly neighbor feeds 6 cats and this will help her a lot.

    • Pneuma922

      where is the $8 one? can anyone help out….i’m only getting $6 and $7

    • Jaimie

      Make sure you click on the links for the coupons. It will take you through a little registration process and ask about your pet. You can choose a cat or dog, not both so you may have to do it twice. You ARE able to print these twice. For cats it prints 2 coupons for buy 4 cans, get 2 free, 2 coupons for $3 off any bag of cat food and one coupon for $8 off any bag of cat food.

      It does work but very slowly so have patience and let the pages load :)

    • Coupons won’t load for me :(

    • Abbie6003

      the website isnt even working for me ?

    • Burd275

      can not get the coupon to open for me. :(

    • Poyzunpen

      Southern savers, did we crash their web site? 

      • Shavon02

         I think so!!!!!

    • Sally

      It took me over 40 minutes start to finish, but the coupons WILL eventually print if you give the site time (I printed mine at 2:45 PM).  Also, if you hit the back button and refresh the page, you should be able to print them twice.  I just went to Petsmart and their SD “Light” formula (for cats) was $8.00 instead of $9.00, so mine was free.  I also got the Feline Pine (w/the $1.50 off coupon) & Dr. Elsey’s litters for the rebate offers.  Spent $2.52 (tax), saved $41.98. :)

      • Mbassett73

        Were the Feline Pine and Elsey’s litter on sale?

    • Anna

      All the coupons on dog food that I am seeing are for $6 or 7 and only prescription dog food. Can any point me towards the Science Diet $8 coupon?! Help!

      • Jaimie

         Make sure you click on the links for the coupons. It will take you through a little registration process and ask about your pet.
        The $8 coupon is also only available if you’re new…so if you register it may not take you back to the link to print the $8 coupon when you’re signed in.
        If so then click the link in this post for the coupon once you’re signed in.

        • Christina

          when i click the link i only get to the special offers page for $6 & $7 coupons but there is no little registration process.  are we supposed to click something else?

          • Julie

            It’s at the top of the page and says register.  After you register, it will ask you to print the 8.00 coupons.

      • Guest

        you can get the coupons at hillspet dot com. then register your dog or cat… make sure you use “dog” to get the dog food coupons. You can print them twice and get twice the coupons.

    • PamH46

      The web site is not working, it says service unavailable. That’s just my luck.

    • Haywire0442

      I tried to get this and it was a total fail. Their website is extremely slow and kept throwing an error. I finally gave up after 45 minutes!

      • 1couponbug

        I tried this afternoon and had the same experience, so just tried again. Try now…it’s working great! At least I got the $8 coupon!!!  Actually, I only got 5 coupons, but I’m still excited to get the $8 one!

    • Liz

      I finally got this to work.  I never got a coupon, but it did take me to a rebate form.  They will pay you back up to $12.99.

    • Poyzunpen

      I finally got it to work, but just for the rebate also. Quite the ordeal! This dog better eat it!

    • Lilycat28

      Try again…I was able to get my coupons pretty quick….the site is not as busy as it was earlier today.

    • JeninCarolina

      Wow–what a drama! Finally got through and was able to print–yea!! Now, let’s hope Petsmart has some food left! :o)

    • PamH46

      After not being able to get it to work, I waited about an hour and finally was able to print my coupons and the rebate form. Did not see an $8 coupon though only $6 and $7.

      • PamH46

        Finally got the $8 off coupon :)

    • Jcgulfshorescondos

      Thank you so much for posting this. I was able to get it to work just now and will love getting such a great deal on this cat food tomorrow.

    • Jcgulfshorescondos

      You must register first with hillspet first and then the coupons will come at the end of the registration. 

    • Liz

      can you use the coupon and then get the rebate….

      • 1couponbug

        Yes. Use the coupon to purchase the Hill’s Science Diet Ideal Balance (I got the one for dry pet food) and then save the UPC symbol from the packaging and the cash register receipt and send along with the rebate form as instructed on the form to get your rebate. Mine is good for up to $12.99.

        • freespirit4eva

          where did u get the rebate form?

          • 1couponbug

            There should be a rebate tab. You get this when you register for the coupons.

          • Guest

            Did you ever find the rebate form? Please let me know if you do…thanks.

      • Jen5826

        the purchase requirements says it cannot be combined with manufacturer’s Q

    • Teri

      Mine printed:
      Buy 4 Science Diet Canine cans and get 2 cans free
      Save $3 on any 3 oz. or larger bag of Science Diet Canine Treats

    • Pat

      Got 2 bags of cat food, 2 bags of dog food, and 2 bags of dog treats for free…well, I did have to pay the tax :-)  I’m thrilled!  Thanks for posting.  Oh, and the dog treats are on sale for $3 right now so use the $3 off any dog treat coupon (print twice).  GREAT DEALS JENNY!!!!!!

      • So does  Petsmart give overages?

        • Guest

          Yes, if you get a $6 bag of Hill’s, you will need to get $2 worth of other stuff to use the $8 coupon… good deal!!

        • Marl

          Yes, I got the $6 dog food (used the $8 coupons) and ended up getting a $2 dog toy and it was free (i just paid the tax).

    • Thanks SO much for posting this, and my cat thanks you too! :)

    • Julie

      When you go through the registration process, did it print a -$8 dog food one?  I only got coupons for cat food…

      • 1couponbug

        I just registered. I entered the information for my dog. When my coupons printed, there were only five, but they were for dog food. I did get the $8 Q, so I am pleased.
        Thanks for posting, Jenny!

    • freespirit4eva

      where is the rebate form??

      • Jen5826

        Search the special offers on the Science Diet website. It’s good for dog or cat Ideal Balance food. But the purchase requirements says it cannot be combined with manufacturer’s Q

    • Tammycimaglia

      Worked great this morning, was able to print 2x

    • Shavon02

      So glad I was able to get it this morning!!! This will help out soo much!!! Thanks!

    • Shavon02

      So glad I was able to get it this morning!!! This will help out soo much!!! Thanks!

    • Delanawhite

      I just registered and I don’t see an eight dollar coupon??? It is a coupon and not just a rebate form right? Can someone help me?

      • Jessicahurff

        I had this issue yesterday using IE8 so I used Firefox and followed the link that Jenny posted and was able to print the coupons.

    • Jessicahurff

      I was able to purchase four bags of dog food, which were on sale for $6 each and six bags of cat food.  I paid $3.36 total, and my six cats and one little out-numbered dog will so appreciate the high quality food!  Also – if you have any cats that require the prescription food, there is a $7 off coupon on the hills wensite. 

    • Patti

      This worked out perfect! I spent $68 on dog food, but I did get 1-30lbs bag (normally what I buy), then used all the other coupons and saved a total of $52. I got shampoo, conditoner and a toy on clearance on top of 1-30lbs dog food, 2-4lbs dog food, 6 cans of big wet food and 24 oz bag of dog treats! Thank you so much for posting this! I was needing dog food within the week and was looking for a sale! My dog will be happy!!!!

    • Guest

      Thanks Jenny! These coupons came at the perfect time. However, my PetSmart wouldn’t let me get 2 bags of dog food and use both $8 coupons in one transaction. So I bought the halter that I went for and almost left the store. But I talked to the manager and he said I had to get $8 worth of stuff to use the coupon..so he gave me credit for the halter and rang it up again with one 5-lb bag of Hill’s and the $2 overage on the coupon applied to the halter. So I went back inside and got the 2nd 5-lb bag, a bag of treats, a valentine clearance rawhide and used the $8 and $3 coupon and paid $1.85 the second trip thru the line. Good deal. :-)

    • Charter

      That was an Awesome deal, My total was $100 After sale Prices was $65 then after Coupons it went to $15… I got 2 Dog Food Bags, 2 Cat Food Bags, 6 cans of Dog Food, 2 bags of Dog Treats.  One dog toy ($5) and a Frisbie… 

    • Loverly642

      Thanks Jenny! I printed 8 cat food coupons, and got 8 bags for $1.00 plus $4.39 tax and…a rain check for 20 more bags at $8.00!  Now asking friends to print out more for the rain check! :D 

      • bryan

        You stated, ” I printed 8 cat food coupons “. Does this mean you registered multiple times on at least 4 computers? Did you buy the last 8 bags of cat food? Rain checks are only suppose to be given when a sale item is sold out.

        • Loverly642

          Yes, I have 4 computers. I bought all 8 bags on the shelf and they checked in the back before the issued the rain check. The manager was nice about it too!  Who knows though after seeing some of these posts if I’ll get more $8.00 coupons through from all of my friends that are sending them after I put out and S.O.S! :) I did snag another 2 bags today with 2 more coupons from a friend! Gonna be really ticked off at hillswhatever if they say that thing isn’t valid but only the $3.00 one.  

    • Guest

      Used two of the $8 dollar dog food coupons as well as two of the $3 dog treat coupons!  This is the only thing we purchased and had no problem using the coupons at PetSmart in Anderson, SC.  Walked out of the store with two bags of dog food and two bags of treats for $1.08!!!!! THANKS JENNY!!!!!!!

      • guest

        with the exception of getting the collar for my dog, I’d have done the same thing…I did use 2 for the $8 qs and only one of the $3 on the treats… the cashier was mad at me and I didn’t want to go back in there a third time. Did anyone have to make this transaction more than one trip… I had to do two trips.. Still have coupons, but….

    • Guest

      Petsmart in Winston-Salem NC had the cat food for $8 and the dog food for $7. They would not let me use the $8 coupon for the dog food even though I was purchasing other items.

      • Marl

        I would write to corporate about this because I talked to the manager at my store before making my purchases today.  He told me that it would be no problem to use my 6 coupons on 6 items.  I got 2 bags of cat food (both the same), 2 bags of dog food (both the same), and 2 bags of dog treats and all coupons worked.  I just paid tax.  Write to corporate and let them know what happened

    • Jledesma1818

      Was not able to use $8 coupon. Was told the coupon was a fake and they treated me like a crimial :(

      • Guest

        Yeah? Even though my two transactions worked out well after talking to the manager, the cashier was mad at me when I left… I don’t know why she took it so “personally”. After then manager found out what I was doing with my coupons, all the dog food, treats, and harness… he said “that is smart”… :-)

      • Triciakindred

        They wouldn’t let me use the coupon either! :(

    • AbbyBabe126

      At first when I went in, the cashier told me I couldn’t use the coupon because the bag that I was getting was $7 and the coupon was for $8. When I told her to just mark the coupon down to $7 she told me she couldn’t do that and that it was illegal.  She totally freaked out on me.  I just walked away from her and went and talked to the manager who after talking to a seasoned cashier (I say seasoned cause she’s been there since the store opened…not cause she was older..even though she was..anyways) and that cashier told her just to mark the coupon to $7, no problem.  There was also a coupon in one of the flyers for 3 free cans of wet food when you buy a bag of food. (sorry don’t remember which one, I found it while looking for my grocery coupons)

      So I got:2 bags of 4.5 oz for small breeds =) – $7 each6 12.8 oz cans of wet food –  $1.60 each2 bags of treats – $3 eachI used:
      2 – $8 off dry food marked down to $72 – 3 free cans of food when you buy a bag of food
      2 – $3 off treats


      My 2 little girls (a yorkie and a westiepoo) sure were happy to see me walking in the front door with this bag of quality food at such a good price and so was my wallet.  One of my dogs has some skin/allergy problems and one is starting to have weight issues so I’m always thankful to get such a great deal and quality food. =)

    • Kimberly_paschal

      Any one have trouble getting rain checks? I was told by the mgr they dont do train checks for sale items….isn’t that the purpose of rain checks? Or is that petsmarts policy? They didn’t have any of the ones my pups can eat :(

      • Loverly642

        I got one rain check yesterday no problem at one store in Greensboro NC but then today the other store manager fed me the line that they don’t give rain checks for 4 day sales items!   I told him the other store did it and I’ll take my business there!  Petsmart is so lame and makes up the rules as they go.  

        • Alpinejf

          I am actually a manager with PetSmart and he was correct in that we do not give out rainchecks for weekend sales. If you read the fine print on the ad, they say while supplies last. Unfortunatley the other store is not following policy, and making things difficult for those who do. As far as the stores not taking the coupons, they are misinformed. We can take the coupon for over the amount, we just adjust the amount of the coupon to match the price of the food, making it free. We do not do overages though. There has been no talk of these coupons being fraudulent within the company. The stores should be taking the coupons.

    • Wendy

      Just went into my PetSmart in Loganville, GA and could not use my coupons on the dog food that was on sale. All  of their small bags were marked $6-7 and they told me that they had to be more then my coupon. Almost left without any thing but did get the cat food for $1 a bag and found little Ceasar soft treats for $3.33 with $1 off coupon attached.

    • Surfin123

      Thank you so much for this Jenny! One of my cats has been very sick so we are up the vet bills! This was so helpful to get food cheap! I got 2 bags of cat food, 4 bags of dog food and 2 bags of treats for $5! Can’t beat that!

    • Jaimie

      I feel bad some of you are having a hard time with your stores taking the coupons! I got 2 bags of dog food for $6 and 2 bags of cat food for $8. I started mentioning something to the cashier that he might have to mark the coupon for the dog food down but he scanned them all and had no problem! So I made $2 on each bag of dog food! I bought something else for my cat so it went toward that but I was very thankful! The dog food will be donated. :)

      • guest

      Greenies 12 oz bag sale for $13 , then use 3
      $3 off coupon. Reg. $16.99

    • Cdcoffellx3

      My Petsmart wouldn’t let me use the coupons because “they are from a third party website (coupons.com). I am getting ready to call Corporate :(

    • Julie

      Was told the $8 coupon was “fraudulant” but they allowed me to use the $3 ones (which makes no sense since they were printed from the same website at the same time)  Manager said they called Hill and Hill said the coupon was an error.  I honestly think PetsMart just didn’t want to honor the coupon since they were losing out on the overages.  Frustrating.

      • bryan

        I believe the manager lied to you. I would dig further into the situation.

        • Jaimie

           They’ve got to be lying or whoever they spoke to at Hill has no clue what they’re talking about.
          These coupons have been available for MONTHS. When I adopted my cat back in October, I got a flyer from Hill (They donate cat food to the shelter) saying to go to their website to print $22 in coupons. I printed these EXACT coupons 3 or 4 months ago! If the coupon is an error, Hill has a lot of explaining to do if they’ve let it go on that long :)
          Plus why would they advertise $22 in coupons but you can’t use $8 of that $22?
          I was lucky and able to use mine at my store, I’m going back later to get more for a friend and we’ll see what happens. They get reimbursed for these so I don’t know what the problem is.

    • Guest

      The Petsmart in Pineville, NC would not let me use the $8 coupons. The cashier called the manager because the dog food coupon was more than the cost of the bag. The manager went in the office and tried to verify the coupon with Hill’s and said it did not verify. The coupon has a site listed apparently were merchants can verify the coupon. I showed him on my phone where I got the coupon, the Hills site. He said he’d take my contact info and try to contact Hill’s and get the coupons verified and call me back. If Hills isn’t verifying the coupons and they are just collecting your information that’s not right. How are people getting to use multiple coupons? When I registered it said one coupon per household. I couldn’t even use one and I was going to donate the food to my local humane society. Bummer!

    • Anne

      Unable to use these coupons in Beaufort, SC.  Called Pet Smart Customer Service.  They have had many calls and are “investigating” the coupons.  Someone will contact me in 3- 5 days when resolved. 

    • Mr Cheap

      When you use the $8 coupon, make sure you buy a $1 treat to make up for the overage. The manager tried to give me a hard time this morning because the register would be off since it came in the negative. I saw a doggy treat for $1 at the register, added that on and paid $.52 in total. My dog was very happy when I came home with an extra goody. GOOD Luck

    • Guest

      ugh – unable to use in summerville, sc…was told that petsmart no longer accepted 3rd party coupons (since it said “coupons.com” on it they considered it third party…that their had been a email about it…

    • Anne

      Jenny, is there anyway we can find out if  any of these coupons or the linked sites are fraudulent?  There are many comments on other sites too that indicate that Hills says they did not originate from them.  I called Pet Smart and talked to them and they said they had been inundated with calls. They are to get back with me in three to five days. Hills was not open, but put in an email to them. 

    • Loverly642

      btw…Hill site said on the front page “save up to $22” and for me I printed out (2) $3.00’s (2) $4’s and (1) $8.  So for them to say it’s a “mistake” or “fraudulent” is really lame!  

    • Elizabethconner

      Coupons wont print now all gone :(

    • Nithak

      I had a problem using my $8 coupon in Columbia, SC, but called the store in Greenville to see if they would accept the coupon and they said they did. I then went back into the store and spoke to a manager and she allowed me to use it.
