Pet Releaf Amends their Frequent Buyer Program


Pet Releaf originally joined the Astro Loyalty Family back in April 2019 when they launched their original Official Buy 10 Get 1 Free Frequent Buyer Program. They were one of the very first CBD Supplement brands to join Astro, so this was very exciting!


Recently they have opted to amend the purchase requirements of their original program from 10 to just 5 (😲) in an effort to give your customers an even better deal when they purchase their supplements from your store.


At Pet Releaf, we control our entire manufacturing process, from seed to sale, from plant to pet. 100% of Pet Releaf's hemp is grown at our joint-venture hemp farm located in eastern Colorado. It is the largest Certified USDA Organic hemp farm in the United States and we’re the only pet company they work with!

If the fact the Pet Releaf even had a loyalty program on Astro is news to you, don't miss out any longer. Go to your Frequent Buyer menu and select Available Astro Frequent Buyer or your Frequent Buyer Enrollment Grid and enroll today!

Boxiecat joins Sharing the Love and Launches a NEW Adoption Program with a Bounce Back Coupon!


Boxiecat has long been an active Astro Brand Partner. They currently have THREE Shop Local Frequent Buyer Programs that cover their wide-range of products, and they run Astro Offers every month! Check out their March Offer and their April Offer.


Boxiecat recently decided that they want to jump in with all four feet and participate in our Sharing the Love program.


Their NEW Adoption Program rewards cat adoption with either a free 6.5lb bag of their Lightweight Air Litter, or a 16lb bag of their Premium Clumping Litter! That's plenty of litter to get adopted kitties off to the right foot. To enroll go to your Offers menu and select Available Pet Adoption Programs.


The coolest part is that when a new pet owner chooses a bag of Boxiecat Litter as a part of their Welcome Home Bundle they will be emailed a Bounce Back Coupon for $5 Off their next bag of litter that can only be redeemed at your store! This gives you yet another opportunity to win over this new pet parent and make them a customer for life!


There are several ways to share news about your Sharing the Love Program with your customers. The Astro Marketing Suite includes several Adoption Themed Templates that can be sent to your customers via Email, App Notification, SMS Text Message, or posted to your Social Media. There are also some Holiday Themed Templates for the month of March that are perfectly suited to showcase your Cat Adoption Programs, such as Cuddly Kitten Day.


Boxiecat has a fantastic blog called the Litter Learning Center. It is a great resource to direct new cat parents to if they need some help adjusting their cat to a new litter or are uncertain as to how to set up a litter box or boxes for their cats.
