How I Saved Over $116 on Pet Meds

My dog was recently diagnosed with Addison's disease, so he requires an expensive monthly shot to live (long story short, his adrenal glands do not produce cortisol). I did some digging and even found some great information on a forum whose dogs have the same disease. Something I learned, 1800PetMeds price matches (say what...like as in Walmart price-matching!?) and a nice woman on the forum referred me to the site to price match with 1-800 Pet Meds, the cost difference was $40 per vial of meds I needed-WOW! Then I did some digging of my own and found a 5% off coupon code
W5PER (doesn't sound like a lot until your total is well over $300 LOL) OR for smaller orders there is a $5 code WEBC5. Then I decided to see if MAYBE they were listed over at Shop at Home...well, by golly, they were...with 10% cash back! Plus, you earn FREE shipping wyb $39 or more.
I love our vet's office and they were going to charge $102 per month for the injection with NO upcharge. Even with just going to 1800PetMeds with no discounts or anything it was going to be more expensive per injection. But with all the discounts and even before the cash back we got it down to under $85 a month-which is a $15 per month savings! Now, if only these savings are good for the rest of his life! haha Then add the cash back of about $29 that brings it down to just over $76 per month! Here is my before and after price:
 
BEFORE discounts: $361.72
AFTER discounts and cash back: $245.56 which is 32% savings on pet meds for a 3.22 month supply-wow!
