Petco will send you an email notification of your earned Pals Rewards Dollar reward within (5) business days of accrual. In addition, you may log in anytime to your Account online or in the Petco App to view all current Pals Reward Dollar rewards and Points.

Make a purchase at least once every 90 days to keep your point balance active. Once your points convert to a Reward, you will have 30 days to redeem it.

Any points earned on the returned merchandise are deducted from your points balance. A negative points balance can result if you return a product with a point value greater than the amount of points in your account balance.


Once you have earned Pals Reward Dollar, you can redeem it by:

  • Loading the reward to your account for automatic redemption at in-store checkout
  • Online at in your shopping cart or in "edit payment" when checking out online at

Pals Rewards are sent via email after a qualifying purchase, these rewards may not be used on same-day purchases.

Most products are eligible for points or rewards redemption. However, donations, gift cards, taxes, tips, cash back, and shipping fees are excluded. Pals Rewards cannot be redeemed at Just Food For Dogs Kitchens, Thrive Vet Hospitals, or at any third-party veterinary partner located within a Petco.


At this time, both the nutrition perk and grooming perk are exclusively available in the Petco mobile app. To activate, log in to your Pals account in the Petco app and “unlock” each perk.

  • Nutrition perk: Once “unlocked,” you will receive a credit(s) for any dry food purchase made within the last 7 days. It may take up to 24 hours for the credit(s) to show. A Pals member must purchase at least one bag of dry food every 12 months for credit(s) toward a free bag to remain active. All dry food purchases will count as a purchase towards the perk; no brands are excluded.
  • Grooming perk: Once “unlocked” within the Petco mobile app, you will receive a credit(s) for any full-service bath or bath with haircut transaction made within the last 7 days. It may take up to 24 hours for the credit(s) to show. A Pals member must purchase at least one full-service bath or bath with haircut every 12 months for credit(s) towards a free groom to remain active.

One (1) credit toward the nutrition perk will be earned when you purchase a qualifying bag of dry dog or cat food in a transaction that is linked to your Pals Rewards account. After accumulating nine (9) qualifying purchases, you will earn one (1) food coupon for a free bag of dry dog or cat food. Effective September 1, 2022, any Pals member who was opted into nutrition perk prior to September 1, 2022, will have the opportunity to receive their 8th bag free. Once the Pals member has completed their 7 qualified purchases, they will earn 1 food coupon, and their number of qualified purchases will reset to 0. The Pals member will then need to make 9 qualified purchases to receive their next food coupon.

One (1) credit toward the grooming perk will be earned when you purchase a full-service bath or groom in a transaction that is linked to your Pals Rewards account. After accumulating seven (7) qualifying purchases, you will earn one (1) groom coupon for a free full-service bath or groom.

The value of your perk is the average cost of the qualified bags purchased up to $99.99, minus all discounts (with the exception of Pals Rewards). The Pals member will have 90 days to redeem their perk.

When you redeem your free bag coupon, additional discounts (such as discounts for repeat Delivery and buy online, pick up in store) will not be applied.

The grooming coupon is a 100% off single full-service bath or bath with haircut.

Returning a purchased bag of food will result in a credit being deducted from your progress bar. If a participating member returns their bag after earning a free bag perk, a credit will be deducted from the progress bar, in some cases resulting in negative progress toward your next perk.
