The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • The Safeway deals are usually at Von’s, Albertson’s, Randall’s, Tom Thumb, Acme, Shaw’s, and Jewel too.

The Fine Print

  • Valid until December 18th, 2018

Our Verdict

Make sure to use a card that earns at a high rate on grocery store purchases. This works out to be a 12% savings in the form of grocery credit on your next shop, that coupled with the fuel points and the points you earn on your credit card make this a good deal for some people.

I was considering AMC but they’re 20% off on Samsung Pay so I’ll pass.

Sounds like 18% off.

No, it is 12%. $125 + $15 = $140 / $125 = 12% discount
Stack with 4x fuel points and 4x Amex Points on Gold card

You’re getting 112% of what you paid for which isn’t the same as a 12% discount.

125/140 = 89.3% which is a 10.7% discount, assuming you value both the gift card and the shopping credit at face value.

If they simply charged you $110 for the $125 purchase, than it would be a 12% discount. The difference is that you must purchase at least $15 worth of additional goods at Safeway.

The actual list at the store was quite a big longer then that. I can’t remember everything, but there was also Home Depot, Cheesecake Factory, Red Lobster and more (about 25 different restaurants and stores.) I value Safeway rewards points at about about 2 cents each, so in addition to the $15 off, you’re also getting about $10 in fuel rewards back. Stack your purchase with Amex Gold for an additional 4 MR pts per $ (also worth about $10 @ 2 cents valuation).

Is the $15 off $15 or there is a minimum like $25 like a similar offer in the past ?

It’s $15 off $25 in groceries with the typical exclusions (alcohol, gift cards, etc.)

Does the $15 off print at the register or get loaded to your account?

Prints at register.

What zip code is this offer valid for? Doesn’t seem to be on the east coast…

I received the offer as a cantina coupon and they didn’t really know how to do it, so they just took $15 off my purchase haha

As it typical, I found this deal displayed at their sister supermarket, Acme. I’m driving through “Safeway territory” for Xmas, so the gas points would be useful to me. But I’m not in need of any of the gift cards that are part of the promotion. I’ve used Happy cards to buy other gift cards at Home Depot self-checkout, but I’m guessing that wouldn’t work with an actual HD gift card, right?
