Don’t Forget the Pups: First BarkBox FREE With 6+ Months of Toys & Treats 🐶

With all the holiday deals out there, here’s another I wanted to share: BarkBox. I’ve had this monthly subscription since December 2013 for my 8-year-old Corgi/Shepherd mix who is also the love of my life, Fenwick.

It’s worth every last freakin’ cent. Every month, they stuff the boxes with:

  • 2 high-quality chew toys
  • At least 2 bags of treats
  • Something to snack on, like a bully stick

I have been continually impressed with the quality of the treats and toys. And Fenwick loves opening his BarkBox every month. It saves me on having to buy treats (I have bags and bags of extras). And if your dog likes to rip up toys or chew the hell out of ’em, they’ll get that moment of bliss every month.

Fenwick can’t decide which BarkBox toy to play with first!

I estimate each box is worth $40+. And I’d have to buy treats anyway.

The 12-month plan is $20 a box. And the 6-month plan is $25 a box. If you wanna try it out, you get double toys and treats in your first box when you sign-up with my link.

Even better, you can cancel any time.

I started 5 years ago with a free box and never looked back. Even through bouts of unemployment, changing apartments, and moving from New York to Dallas, Fenwick’s BarkBox has always been a constant in our lives.

Who could say no to that little face?

He loves playing with his toys and looooves his treats. $20 a month is totally worth it for my baby dog.

BarkBox pricing

You get the best deal when you spring for the 12-month subscription. You pay as you go, not upfront. And you can cancel whenever. I’ve always found the customer support to be fast and responsive when I’ve had to change address/missed a box/etc.

If you have a multi-dog household, even better. You’ll wind up with so many extras!

I actually can’t use the treats fast enough! When I travel, I use Rover to book Fenwick’s favorite sitters and always throw in an extra bag to share with other dogs.

If you have more than one pup at home, they can definitely share the surplus of treats and toys!

BarkBox would make an excellent gift for your dog or for someone you know who has a dog. I actually tell people to get Fenwick gifts instead of me – and he’s a very spoiled pup! 🐶

I would normally address any drawbacks, too. But honestly… there aren’t any. The quality is so good and the customer service has been fantastic. I’ll keep this subscription for as long as I can!

Bottom line

Go for it! If you have a pup, or know one, get a box with my link.

You get the best deal on 12-month subscriptions. And you can cancel any time for any reason.

I’ve had the service for 5 years and will keep it given the pricing and quality stay the same.

And if you ever need a walker or sitter, I’ve had great experiences with Rover – check ’em out and get $20 off your first boarding.

    • Hey Kerri! This was an old promotion. I believe they’ve stopped offering this deal. There are sometimes new deals that pop up, but they come and go. The link in this post will always have the current deal – sounds like there’s nothing for now. Sorry for the confusion!
