Frugal Friday: Schneider Saddlery's Bonus Bucks Program

Recently, I went down to the mail room and discovered a rather unassuming envelope from Schneider's Saddlery. I was a little perplexed, since the last order I placed with the company had already been filled just as I expected and all of the items arrived in perfect condition. As it turned out, that order was just what I needed to earn a $20 Bonus Bucks voucher! Yay!

Admittedly, it's been a few years since I started making purchases from Schneider's and I forgot all about the Bonus Bucks program until my voucher showed up. Needless to say, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that my customer loyalty was paying off!

Schneider's Bonus Bucks program is really very simple. Schneider's awards one point for every $1 spent through their catalog/website, or at the merchant stalls they set up at major horse shows such as the All American Quarter Horse Congress and Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show. (If you've made a purchase from Schneider's at a show, save your receipts! You'll need to mail them in to collect your points.) For every 500 points, Schneider's mails out a $20 Bonus Bucks voucher. Easy, right?

For someone like me, it can take a little while to reap the benefits of the Bonus Bucks program. I only have two horses -- Sam, the dressage horse you all know about, and Skeeter, a retired Appaloosa foxhunter mare -- and my purchases are generally rather small thanks to that pesky "horse-owner-on-a-student-budget" thing. Not to mention, Schneider's has some of the lowest, most competitive prices in the American horse industry matched with high quality items, so it's not like I'm having to go buy another $350+ turnout blanket every year. (Not that I'm complaining!)

Now, what to buy...


 This weekend, Schneider's is offering a special deal! Place an order between 10 am and 5 pm EST on August 3-4, 2012 and receive free navy polo wraps. Good timing, huh?
