Pick n Pay offers discount for pet insurance

Pick n Pay’s Smart Shopper has teamed up with pet insurer dotsure.co.za and will offer its Pet Club members 50% off their pet insurance premiums for the first three months of their new policy.

Pick n Pay has the largest retail pet club membership base in South Africa with nearly 120,000 members, while dotsure.co.za is South Africa’s largest pet insurance company and has insured nearly 125 000 pets in South Africa.

Dotsure.co.za offers convenient and affordable pet cover and was the first major insurer to offer cover for exotic pets, including tortoises, reptiles and birds of prey.

It offers a comprehensive selection of pet insurance plans and was also the first South African insurer to offer a 100% online “quote, buy and manage” functionality suite for both pet and motor insurance.

“We are the country’s leading pet insurer, and we’re constantly looking for ways to innovate. It made perfect sense for us to team up with Pick n Pay, who has the largest pet club membership base in South Africa,” says David Roache, chief operating officer of dotsure.co.za.

Pick n Pay Pet Club – which is free to join – continues to grow steadily as members enjoy a range of benefits including 3X Smart Shopper points on all pet products to use as cashback, exclusive discounts, access to pet-related content and regular competitions.

In the last year alone, Pick n Pay Pet Club members have enjoyed over R4 million in savings through bonus Smart Shopper points and exclusive discounts.

“Our Pet Club community is an active, engaged group of customers who cares for their pets. Many customers spoil their animals regularly so we know that insurance for their pet family members would be high on their list of priorities. This partnership helps us reduce part of the cost for our members and is another way for us to give our customers more value,” says Andrew Mills, Group Executive: Marketing at Pick n Pay.

“We’re confident pet parents around the country will appreciate the convenience and benefits of being able to shop smartly while also insuring their furry, feathered, and scaly friends – all in the same place,” says Roache.

Another benefit of the partnership is that Pet Club members who get a free quote will stand a chance to win R5,000 in Smart Shopper points every month.
