The Offer

Direct Link to offer (login required)

Check your Safeway Just4U for a digital coupon to get:

  • $10 off when you buy $100 in Mastercard gift cards.

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

 

The Fine Print

  • One time use
  • Valid through 10/26/19

Our Verdict

Remember to save the offer first to your card before use. You won’t get fuel points on Visa/MC gift cards. Make sure to use a card that earns at a high rate on grocery store purchases. This version of the offer does work on the variable cards.

Isn’t this the version of the offer that works on Variables?

Celia

It should since it says 100 or more.

Can MGC be used to load BB at WM? I know VGC works fine but have never tried MGC.

sam

yes it should, doesnt work anymore on serve but still works on BB. that’s the consensus. ymmv at individual store based on computer system updates etc

Why would MCGCs not work on Serve but for BB? The thing with MCGC was that you had to do an extra trick to get them to work properly so it should work for everything.

Can you please elaborate on that “extra trick”, or point me to a thread that explains it? Thanks!

Mr. Google directed me to a post from PointChaser but it talks about MOs (I haven’t added the website link since it may subject my comment to moderation and may take forever to get published)

POS updates have rendered that extra trick dead for all of our local WMs.

Do you mean mcgc no longer works after the POS update? I have not seen it yet.

Incorrect. Need to verify your sources next time since it still works. I just did it tonight.

Yes, they have variable Mastercards and it worked for me.

Just bought 2 variable cards @ 500 each in bay area (with separate accounts #), got $10 discount on each transaction without issue. Just 4 more cards and I’ll max out my 4x amex gold for the year.

Can those MCGC’s be used to pay mortgages via Plastiq?

Did not seem to work on variable MCGC at Vons in San Diego. The cashier had to apply generic $10 off discount code manually.

Edit: also another discount code for chips did get applied automatically so it wasn’t an issue with account.

Hmm, worked fine on a variable for me at Vons just now.

FWIW, as a PSA for next time. I run into the same issue and it turned out that the offer did not auto-apply for the black “celebrate” MCGC, but for the pink-ish MCGC.

In total it failed 3-times on the black one: one time the manager manually overrode, one time the manager didn’t want to come down, one time they tried another one (the pink-ish) packaging. After learning that, I successfully bought 4x in the pink-ish packaging without any issues.

can I use samsung pay to buy?

You should be able to, unless the store insists on seeing the physical card to compare to your ID. But there’s no technical reason why it wouldn’t work.

Astonishing to me that they keep running these deals. Between this deal and Staples, you can pretty much travel for free all year with the right credit cards (assuming you don’t need first class and 5 star-hotels all the time). Of course, you do need a way to get rid of the gift cards, and it can be a PITA

This offer worked for a variable card for me at Safeway. 😁

For the variable mastercard gc, is the purchase fee fixed? If I purchase the maximum one($500), would the purchase fee still be $5.95?

MisterBill
MisterBill

Yes. And it’s the same as for the $100 card (I checked today but did not purchase).

Bob
Bob

Thanks. Aww, I should of got the $500 one. I bought the $100 one today with $5.95 fee and added into Venmo, not realizing there is a card limit 🙁

Ro

Oh Nice, you were able to add it to Venmo!
