BarkBox Complete Guide to Savings

At BARK, staff want to make dogs as happy as they make as their owners. Because dogs and humans are better together.

That's why they are committed to creating the world's best products and experiences to satisfy each individual dog's distinct personality and preferences.

What is BarkBox?

BarkBox is a monthly subscription service for your dog with entertaining treats, toys and chews that they should love.

BarkBox Review

Each box is based on a unique theme, so that each month you will receive new and unique items.

Owners can further choose what they like by working with BarkBox's customer service if their dog is not happy with some of the products.

Additionally, you can choose toys for a small, medium, or large dog for further customization.

What Comes in a BarkBox?

The BarkBox Basics - Included within each box is an array of unique and first-rate toys, treats, and chews that all have a fun monthly theme. Examples include New York City and Chewrassic Bark (a box 45 million dog years in the making).

Where and How are BarkBox Treats & Toys Made?

Everything that comes to your door will have undergone a rigorous and research-heavy selection process. BarkBox only collaborates with American and Canadian vendors that use fresh, top-quality ingredients in their treats. Their NYC-based team designs most of their toys in-house, and they make sure that each item has the stamp of approval from their (very lucky) office dogs. Plus, if your pup ever makes a "meh" face at one of the treats, toys, or chews, the Bark team will happily send a replacement.

What If My Dog Is A Super Chewer?

How Much Does BarkBox Cost?

It depends! If you buy just one month of BarkBox, the price is $29. Select the 6-month plan and it's $25. Select the 12-month plan and it's just $21. Regardless of your selection, you're getting a great deal. If you were to buy each toy, chew, and bag of treats separately, the price would be well over $29.

When Will BarkBox Arrive?

BarkBox ships on the 15th of every month with an estimated delivery of 2-8 business days in the U.S. and 4-12 business days in Canada, eh. If you place your order for your first month's subscription before the 28th, your BarkBox will ship that same month.

Additionally, while the 12 month subscription is $22/box, you can pay $239 upfront, which reduces the cost to $19.91 per box.

Change Frequency of Shipping

One little-known fact about BarkBox is that you can contact customer service to change the frequency of delivery.

Maybe you do not need treats and toys every single month.

Instead you can change delivery to every 2 months, for example, and spread out the deliveries.

That way your plan does not renew as often and you save money in the long run.

While you are still paying the same price, it would be longer before you need to renew your plan.

Order From Their BarkShop

Maybe you don't need a monthly plan at all. You can order toys, treats, and chews directly from their BarkShop without committing to any plan.
