[Expired] The Farmer’s Dog: First Box Free (Free High Quality Dog Food) + Possible Drop Offer For 75,000 Pts ($75 Money Maker)

Update: Check the Drop app to see if you are targeted for 75,000 points (worth $75) on your first order. If you are new to Drop, you can sign up with our referral code doctorofcredit and get $5 worth of points. You probably won’t see this deal though. If I had this drop deal then I’d definitely do this offer. Hat tip to reader Bename

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • The Farmer’s Dog is offering your first box of dog food for free

The Fine Print

  • Offer ends 11/29 11:59pm PT

Our Verdict

This enrolls you in auto billing (weekly), so you will want to cancel ASAP. Price is $90 per dog per week which seems absolutely crazy to me. There is online account cancellation so shouldn’t be too difficult to cancel. Some people are getting 42 packs of food which would normally cost $300. Personally I think the risk of something going wrong and cancellation not working properly is too high and I don’t really want to be stuck with dog food costing $300, that being said I don’t have a dog so I’d only be doing this deal to give it to somebody else anyway. Up to you to decide if you want to go for it or not.

“Personally I think the risk of something going wrong and cancellation not working properly is too high and I don’t really want to be stuck with dog food costing $300.”

This is where an empty vgc comes in handy. They can’t charge you if there’s nothing on there to pull.

Drop app offer 75k point first time subscription

Did this through the app. Not sure how good the tracking is, so we’ll see!

any link to people talking about how they ordered $300 worth? you dont have a hat tip or anything and this ordering process is a little complex

Sam
Sam

kind of figured it out. seems like a large 80 pound dog gets about $150 worth for the free trial. so three dogs would get you $450. im assuming with smaller dogs the portions are smaller and you get less food

Bruce

Or you can just say your one dog is 300 pounds. :^)
I’m happy with enough food for my dog to sample and $75 from Drop, where I found the offer.

Pretty great offer.

I went through Drop and was able to place the order. You can “delay” the first paid shipment right away, so I did that.

Drop didn’t send me any confirmation email of offer going through, and points didn’t show up yet either.

In past Drop offer, the points just showed up eventually within a few days without confirmation email.

Sam To get dog food worth that much, you’d have to have a pretty big dog. The signup process makes sure that’s one of the first questions to ask, and you can’t go back and change it. Even with my 15 pounder, it says the shipment is worth $80ish.

Company and food seem quality. I’m okay even if the Drop offer didn’t work.

The points or the order? Points are still pending, and order has yet to ship out

Not doing this because:

1, Drop terms says “Offer cannot be combined with any other offers with The Farmer’s Dog”.
2. If it’s billed weekly, and it takes up to 21 days to get points, there is the potential to end up paying for at least 2 weeks.

What am I missing?

Matt B

1. i am unsure how to respond to this one.

2. With Swagbucks, it always says takes up to (32 days) to get the points credited or something, that just means that they are pending until that doesn’t mean you have to stayed subscribed for that long, if you return (if possible) your first free bag of dog food for whatever reason and tell them to close your account completely, then they might take the points back or not give them to you.

DoC normally recommends staying subscribed until points post. SB esp. has some sort of weird clause that you are supposed to sign up for offers that you truly have an interest in…blah blah blah. Doing Lifelock now and points are pending until 11/30, but just got billed for the 2nd month today.

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek 🕵️ Where does it say it’s billed weekly? It seems it’s billed per shipment, and you can delay your first paid shipment

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek 🕵️

DoC’s article said weekly billing.

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek 🕵️ Good point. But I can’t imagine being charged anytime soon for the next shipment that I set for mid January. The current one is noted clearly as a free trial. I’ll add a Visa GC just in case

I said “what the hell” and decided to go for it. Have a feeling all I am going to get out of this deal is an unpaid trip to drop off food at the local shelter, but will hope for the best. A dog at the Humane Society will eat like a king. I actually have a dog, but doubt I am going to switch her food for a two week trial.

Confirmation said my first shipment will be the week of Dec 10th, and my renewal (because it’s a tiny 6lb dog) is my choice of every 8 or 4 weeks, cost of about $20 per week. I set the next delivery until late Jan. By then I will have my points, or I wont. Thanks A M Matt B!

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek 🕵️ Did your get any indication from drop of points?

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek 🕵️

Nope. To be fair, it took over 30 minutes just to get the e-mail confirming the order. Did you get anything from Drop?

Did my order from the Drop app. Last time I tried an order by e-mailing myself the offer using the link in the app I did not get credit. Had to complain and send screenshots. This time I don’t think screenshots will work as it’s clearly marked free trial.

Thankful for this site!

Did this about 2 hours ago and just got a notification from Drop saying my points are pending and they’ll be in my account “ASAP”

The food isn’t anything special. We tried it before and my dog will barely eat it.

For drop to get triggered doesn’t a charge have to post on a card linked to drop?

If so, how can you get the free dog food and the points from drop?

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek 🕵️

Then how would Drop offers like SoFi get triggered when you don’t use a debit or credit card to signup? (actually, I had to get them to manually post my SoFi signup Drop points, so maybe that isn’t the best example)

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek 🕵️

An hour ago I got a push notification on my phone for the Drop app.

“Hang Tight! Your points for The Farmers Dog are pending, but won’t be for long. They’ll appear in your account ASAP, automatically.” Feeling hopeful. 🧙‍♂️

Did you use a credit card that was linked to the Drop app?

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek 🕵️

Yeah, all my cards are linked, but the only charge from TFD is .10 pending.

When you look at your Drop app, tap “My Offers”, and the heading of the section says “Shop Through Drop – Shop in-app and earn points with the brands below. No linked card required”. TFD is my top item, probably because I added the offer in the shop area.

Thanks. Yeah, it’s definitely in my offers, but no notification as of this morning. I didn’t used a linked credit card, but it shouldn’t matter according to the offer. The problem is if it doesn’t track, then it’s outside of the terms and conditions which you discussed previously in this thread. Hopefully it all works out.

I have no cards linked in Drop and got the push notification Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek 🕵️ described this morning

I figure it tracks the way Acorn found money offers do and how Swagbucks does it, and if it does require same email address or CC linked to account then it tells you that

the card you use doesnt have to be linked in the app. mine wasnt and points show pending. Drop has both card linking functionality and portal functionality, this is portal style offer so you just need to go through the drop link and place your order, dont need to have your card linked

Sam off topic, but if you were selling coins or collections what place or places would you recommend? thank you Sam

Damn, I got the offer in my Drop.. but looks like I missed the free trial.. now only a 50% off trial comes up. I made up a dog weighing 10 lbs.. and it’s showing $36 for the trial. I guess that kills the deal.

Just curious though, anyone try putting a small dog down.. a teacup.. maybe 1lb, did that work?

Do you have to use a card linked to your Drop app? I haven’t used Drop in about a year. Forgot what cards I even have linked. Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek 🕵️

Was thinking to use a prepaid card like A M suggested, but not sure if that would trigger the points if it needs to be linked?

I’m currently overseas, that’s why I’m trying to figure out the smallest amount of spend possible to get the 75k Drop points, otherwise if I were home right now I’d probably just donate it to a local shelter like Gadget suggested.

Gadget - Bank Bonus Geek 🕵️

My card was linked… I link all my credit cards as soon as I get them. That way I can collect my pennies when i go to 7-11 or McD’s. I never use debit to buy things unless forced to by the terms of a promo.

Unlike what someone said that you can’t go backward on the app, I just hit the back button on my application and edited my dog info before I entered my credit card. I also closed out and came back to it later, because I wasn’t planning on completing the offer, and all the info I entered was saved but editable. I can’t imagine a teacup eats much less than my dog, so it was $20 per week reg. priced. The power play would have been to have a 100lb dog and get the freebie food, but your plan is solid if you want to minimize the cost.

Though if you click the Farmer’s Dog thing under “PENDING” on tthe “POINTS” tab, it says “the points are pending until they can be verified with the Farmer’s Dog”
