[Expired] Safeway: Save on $15 When You Buy 2 $100 Visa Giftcards [Vons, Randall’s, Albertsons, Tom Thumb, Acme, Jewel, Shaw’s 11/28-12/4]

Deal has expired, click here for more Safeway deals.

The Offer

Direct Link to offer (login required. Offer not yet live)

Check your Safeway Just4U for a digital coupon to get:

  • $15 off when you buy two $100 Visa gift cards. 11/28-12/4

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

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. In the past this has not worked on variable load cards.

Nothing showing up for the ACME side. May be it will show up on 11/28. J4U is on a spree for the last 30 days. We had MCGC and VGC combine, then MCGC that ended on 11/24. Now this. PITA to liquidate with small denom.

There doing these promos for the exact reason the gift cards were created… not to make MSers happy but for people to buy as gifts.

Safeway has gotten the hang of it so we can assume they won’t do variable amount promotions any more.

The dates for the offer suggest it might be available to load to accounts on Wednesday along with everything else in the new weekly ad. I’ll check periodically but am guessing most of us will be seeing it then.

I got $400 in Visa GCs to use a Costco using Amex Gold (4x pts!) last month. Looks like I get to get $400 more!

Not sure how many people this may apply to and it isn’t super lucrative but I scoop up a few of these every time they come around to pay on my student loans. Quick no fee way to capture student loan payments on a credit card.

This works perfect for me since Fred Meyer doesn’t code for 4x on the Amex Gold but Safeway does… sooooo, go pick up the gift cards, then go shopping for groceries at Fred Meyer (which has a MUCH better produce and vegetarian selection locally for me compared to Safeway).

Nothing showing in the Jewel MyMixx app. Hopefully it will show on 11/28. Easy to use organically.

Anyone knows can I use Safeway gift card to purchase VGC or other third party gift cards e.g. Amazon? And can I use self-checkout?

Not *all* employees. YMMV.

Stack with Amex offer of 15% off grocery! I used this offer this morning and stacked to Amex offer of 15% off (up to $10). Bought 2x $100 and 2x $50 ($300 total) for $286.80

My Vons account has two offers – 2x $50 VGC ($10 of) and 2x $100 ($15 off).

Yes same here I also see two offers on visa gift cards

This would be a good deal, if there was only an easy way to get rid of $100 GCs! I’ve never seen Safeway limit the number of loyalty accounts you have, you just need to register them with different emails and phone numbers. Lots of people would be doing just that if you could buy $500s. 🙂

Can’t you get rid of them through WM money order or Serve just like the $200 Visa cards?

iahphx
iahphx

Yes, theoretically, you can. But it’s time consuming and looks suspicious. Generally better to deal with $500 GCs.

I don’t know if this is targeted or not, but I see both a save $15 when you buy TWO $100 Visa gift cards AND a save $10 when you buy TWO $50 gift cards. I didn’t see this yesterday…

I’ve got the same in Seattle (safeway). For those who don’t see both offers, try changing your zip code to 98112 in your app and selecting a store in Seattle.

Also, slightly OT but I just recently discovered you can play around with different zip codes to add other region’s offers to your account and then redeem in your home region, assuming the offered items are the exact same in your store, or for general coupons. For example, I tried my old zip code in San Francisco and was presented with a bunch of offers for triple gas points on produce, $1 off any Organic item, etc and they all processed correctly at my home store in WA
