12 Months Sainsbury’s Pet Insurance For The Price Of Nine Exclusively Online

24 January 2012

An exclusive online offer of 12 months for the price of nine for new Sainsbury’s Pet Insurance customers is available until Monday 9th April 2012(1).


Sainsbury’s shoppers with a Nectar card taking out a Pet Insurance policy could also benefit from double Nectar points on all Sainsbury’s shopping and fuel for two years(2). In addition, pet owners taking advantage of the offer have the opportunity to receive a further 5% discount if they insure a second pet.


Sainsbury’s Pet Insurance provides one of the highest levels of vet fee cover at up to £7,500 per condition with no maximum time limit.


Helen Williams, Head of Sainsbury’s Pet Insurance said: “Advances in veterinary treatment mean that our pets – young and old – have access to better medical care, however, this can be expensive so it’s important to consider how you would cover this. Having good pet insurance will give you peace of mind that you won’t need to try to find an emergency fund to treat your animal, allowing you to focus on their return to good health..”

Customers who instead opt to buy their Sainsbury’s Pet Insurance policy over the phone could receive a £40 Sainsbury’s gift voucher(3). This offer is available until 29th February 2012 and also includes double Nectar points on Sainsbury’s shopping and fuel for two years.
