These normally sell for $10 at Walmart and Walgreens. Once in a while you can catch them on sale at Walgreens for $7.50. It's the only treat my dog will eat and I have to limit him or he will eat 5 or 6 in a row.

For some reason both the Add-on item price and Subscribe & Save price are the same so feel free to stock up to get over the $25 minimum required to get Add-on items.

Thanks for the post, OP. At several points in the past Amazon has dropped these to $7.99, but can't remember them ever being $6.99 before.

Also, the S&S option is new (well, they had it and dropped it some point in the last year). And it actually does give you a 5% discount (so $6.64 per bag) if you get over 5 items for the month. Good time to stock up--these things last basically forever.

Edit: Also, prepare for the "Made in China" / "My dog ate one of these and died" / "Is this non-GMO rawhide?" people.

no chance i'm giving my dogs anything made in china.

save some money now for the risk of killing your dog or a huge vet bill isn't worth it.

i know US companies have plenty of recalls too, but i will never trust food products produced in China after the melamine scandal.

It's been $6.99 solid since at least September 16 except for about 3 days when it was $7.99. No need to catch a sale anywhere, this is the normal price unless you don't use Subscribe and Save for some reason.

Disregarding China, rawhide, and diabetes debates because I know the answer is convenience and price-based but at least make sure you know what alternatives are available. There are many other treats that are single ingredient jerkied meat or similar, are made in the US, last forever (expiration 2020), and are either cheaper or only slightly more expensive. A case of 50+ hooves was $4.74 shipped with Prime, for example.

Hooves, esophagus, bully sticks, ears, strap (tendon/ligament), ribs. The only catch is you have to spend time looking. If you don't want to spend time looking, have you tried carrots in a Kong? I'm not a huge fan myself, but my dog goes nuts for them.

Just because it's been $6.99 for a month doesn't mean that's going to be the regular everyday price on it going forward (unless you have some insider knowledge I don't). Check out the Camel history on it--looks like last October it was $5.99 briefly and then jumped up above $7 after that). Wouldn't surprise me at all if it's back to $7.99 or even $9.99 by next month.

Also, the S&S feature was only recently re-added to it (like within the last week). So for people that do S&S, getting these @ $6.64 is close to an all-time low.

Not engaging on the other stuff. I'm all for well-informed decision-making but there is also a ton of fear-mongering that goes on here in any thread about food (dog or human).

You're right about the rampant fear mongering that takes place with dog items and my point was that there's just as much cognitive dissonance and plain old lack of knowledge with regards to the value of a product. I'm talking about actual quality of the specific product and not the controversial, vague topics of country of origin and risks of a type of treat.

This product isn't selling competitively, as it was previously, at the $7.99 price point. It should be in the $6-7 range in the / for the next several months. It's declining in sales because its value is lower than alternatives immediately available on Amazon. It will continue to do well in B&M at the $10 price range because most people don't want to take the time to investigate something that is unfamiliar to them. It's much easier to pick up some "chicken sticks" for the dog at the grocery store than it is to seek out cow hooves or esophagus jerky from amazon. As Amazon and its customers move into the online grocery segment products like this will decline in price permanently and more significantly.

Regadless of the above, there are other, better options in my opinion:

$1.76 -- 8.0 oz ---- Dingo Dental Mintz (30ct) -- http://a.co/6vvS06Y
$2.84 -- 6.2 oz ---- Get Naked Grain Free Joint Health Dental Chew Sticks -- http://a.co/igkCIOM
$2.84 -- 6.6 oz ---- Get Naked Grain Free dental Chew Sticks, Large -- https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JONK99A
$3.84 -- 12 oz ----- Pet Factory Chicken Dog Roll US cattle beef hide chicken flavor munchie roll (40ct) -- http://a.co/bBzOMFx
$3.98 -- 8.0 oz ---- Smokehouse Chicken Stix Dog Treats Made in the U.S.A -- http://a.co/0D0IjPE
$5.72 -- 32 oz ---- Healthy Baker Flavored Biscuits -- http://a.co/4CtwQ24]
$5.77-- 12 oz ---- Dingo count Rawhide Mini Bones (21ct) -- http://a.co/aw5kl0P
