Safeway: Save on $10-$15 When You Buy 2 $100 and $50 Mastercard Gift Cards [Vons, Randall’s, Albertsons, Tom Thumb, Acme, Jewel, Shaw’s]

The Offer

Direct Link to offer (login required)

Check your Safeway Just4U for a digital coupon to get:

  • $15 off when you buy two $100 Mastercard gift cards. Expires 11/24/18.
  • $10 off when you buy two $50 Mastercard gift cards. Expires 11/24/18.

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

Our Verdict

In the past, the $100 and $50 deals at Safeway did not work on variables; you’ll have to find those exact fixed denomination cards. 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.

It’s not really worthwhile for the vast majority of us readers when the $5 activation fees on each card is factored in.

$5.95 here and Safeway Hawaii adds $.25 tax so it becomes $6.20

Wife tells me her bank of America card is offering 5% cash back at grocery stores. If that is true 2 x $100 will cost me $187.05. $400 worth of gift cards would be $25 in savings for me. Don’t care / can’t use the fuel points.

What’s the pin on this? For using it at Walmart?

Depends on the type of the MCGC. Look at the packaging and you will figure it out.

The MC Red Plaid with a bow is a pin inside on piece of card stock. My favorite! Buy at register, buy MO at CS.

Apparently the MCGCs didn’t sell well since this deal at Safeway et al is now back-to-back with the same one that expired yesterday.

Why is MCGC selling worse than VGC? I thought US bank is at least more reputable than Meta Bank

Requires really fast fingers to change payment type or ask to swipe card first which some cashiers will resist on doing so, when liquidating at Walmart.

Lately it doesn’t require anything,not even pin. Swipe and done

I vaguely remember hearing MCGC is more prone to be stolen. Not sure why. And also if u were to use them online, u had to register them, unlike VGC

At my WM I just use 3 VGC then MCGC as the last one and it’s pretty easy no trigger finger required 😉

I’d much rather have VGC as I’m trying to put spend on Amex Hilton but need to buy items at Costco

I vaguely remember Amex Gold in Vons/Albertson’s still earns 4X for gc purchase, correct?

It should.

There’s also 8X gas points for happy cards, which can be used at home depot, dell, etc.

Two out of three local ACMEs have all $100 VGC vanish. They were there earlier. Not sure if someone cleared them out or the stores deliberately removed the stock.

There’s no apostrophe in Vons. Wouldn’t normally mention it, but this seems to be a recurring post & it catches my eye every time 🙂

Do they work if you get the $500 ones?
