The following gift cards are showing in the ad: Amazon, Macys, Lowes, Toy R Us, Gap, OldNavy, Outback, Bass Pro, and one other (Darden?). It may be that this offer will work on other gift cards as well, but these are the ones we know now.

Go to the online rebate form and fill out the your email address and the reward code found on the store receipt.

Update: This offer is apparently only available in some Safeway locations, not all. Check your local circular to verify.

The Fine Print

  • Offer valid 9/16/15 – 9/29/15
  • Rebate must be submitted by 10/13/15
  • Limit 2 per household
  • Limit one coupon per transaction; this is important – you need to buy $125 in two separate transactions, not $250 in one transaction
  • We have not yet found this deal to be available at the other stores in the Safeway chain (Vons, Albertsons), if you see the offer at those stores please let us know

Our Verdict

At first glance, I wasn’t so excited about the offer because of the hassle of the rebate. Then I noticed that it’s an online rebate which makes things easier and makes the deal much better (yeah, it’s probably just a psychological block, but still).

This amounts to basically like a 20% discount on the purchase of the gift cards. At it’s at a supermarket which often gets bonused credit card rewards. If you have multiple addresses, it may be within the terms of the deal to do two per address.

iTunes Gift Card Deal

There’s also an entirely separate deal being offered at Safeway to get 20% off iTunes gift cards. Valid 9/16- 9/22. Needs digital coupon.

It would be awesome if these two offers can stack, but for now we are not assuming that the $25 Visa prepaid card offer will work with the purchase of iTunes gift cards since that is not showing clearly in the ad. It is possible though…

Does anyone know if I can buy 5x$25 worth gift cards and still get the coupon code or I need to buy 1x $125 gift card?

Here is my experience with the promotion. I believe it is only available in limited markets.

Not a bad deal. Cashiers at my local Safeway are pretty cool about letting you do a bunch of back to back transactions when they know you’re just trying to milk a deal so I should be able to max it out in one trip. I’ve got 6 addresses I can mail to so I’ll probably go for the Lowes gift cards and resell them, earn $22.50 in profit from the resale and 6750 Amex MR points from my Everyday Preferred.

How are you profiting by $22.50, If you are selling the gift card(lowes) for $122.50 then profit of $22.50 is feasible but most re-sellers don’t pay that much.

This is definitely YMMV. My Safeway isn’t advertising it.

Mine neither, but I suppose we can still file rebate online? I am not sure though..
