Our Verdict

Last time they offered this variable load Visas were not working, but 5 back variables and Mastercard were working. Please share DP on what is isn’t working this time. Update: Variable Visa’s seem to be working fine this time. Make sure to use a card that earns at a high rate on grocery store purchases.

Hat tip to @ChurnTx & @1hktrader

Easy stacks with 5X gas points as ACME. 5X gas points works on GC as well. I tried $500 MCGC yday and it worked. Too bad, it expired tomorrow.

Actually last time there were reports that the discount was finally working on the variable load gift cards. I went to my local Safeway on 11/5, 2 days before expiration, and I was able to get the discount on a $500 VGC. I don’t know if the issue was fixed nationwide, or it depended on the store, but I was definitely able to pay $495.95, instead of $505.95.

It was very YMMV – depended on both card design and store, I saw DPs (and had experiences) that wildly contradicted each other. Seemed completely random.

No snafu with the $500 VGCs this time. I also picked up an 8x fuel point ebay GC to add to the 400 fuel points from 5back purchase from the last round for $1/gal discount on my next fillup.

Thanks DoC!

OK, good — so you bought a $500 variable load Visa this morning and the $10 came off? I’m glad we’ll all apparently be spared the hassle this time.

In the Mid-Atlantic, the Acme gas program isn’t as lucrative as some others (because of the dollar/gallon cap), but I can also combine this with the previous promo to get to the dollar. And we’ll get to the end of December to use it. If I don’t need it, I’ll gift it to a friend or family member, who will certainly appreciate it.

Variable visa (Sunrise Bank) did not work today at Jewel – same as the last promo. Customer service just gave me the $10 in cash. The variable mastercards worked at Jewel last time so I will try that tomorrow.

Same here. Tried loading $150 on Visa as per associate’s suggestion and I also tried loading $500 on Visa. Neither worked at 3 Chicagoland Jewel stores. Some of the associates have no idea what promotion is about. One associate incorrectly thought it was only good on Mastercards.

Yup, problems again. The black-box $500 variable Visa card did not trigger the $10 at Acme. Sigh. After causing great annoyance to the folks on line behind me, the manager just gave me 10 bucks.

Any idea if the MCs are working?

BTW, I’m not immediately seeing any fuel rewards from this transaction. Does it take awhile for those points to post, or are the Visas not triggering fuel rewards?

typically no fuel points on $20-$500 cards, only fixed or $20-$200 (YMMV). Rewards usually post within minutes for me – as in the time it takes to go from the store register to the pump.

It seems that I wound up with $2.50 in gas (capped at $1 per fill up, of course) on my otherwise unsuccessful Visa GC purchase at Acme. Does anyone know why?

Yeah, look through the ad. It’s 5x this week. 500×5=2500

This seemed to be a regional or temporary issue. I did not have any issues at my Vons in Southern California on 11/04 and 11/05.

But it highly depends on the cashier if they allow me to buy a $500 card, limit me to $200 or don’t let me pay with credit card at all. Glad to see this deal back so soon.

Variable load MCGC worked at ACME for $500. Also got 5X gas points.

I can’t seem to log into Safeway Just4U, maybe down temporarily?

A few friends and I can’t log in either, northern California here (safeway app/website)

I think it’s sitewide problem.

Yep, DDoS it is. This isn’t the first time we see this deal, but it’s the first time this problem occurs.

Same issue logging in and even when I can, very buggy trying to select offer. Tried it at my local store and discount wasn’t taken off. Norcal Eastbay

Site working again now, able to add coupon. At least in the east bay you have some walmarts. Walmart ecommerce headquarters is in San Bruno (large employer for programmers), can’t they sneak a walmart into the corp offices? =)

Not working for me at all. Won’t get past login. At least this morning it was just slow and buggy.

Also try opening the site in incognito mode (chrome) or privacy mode (firefox). Basically you want a clean session without the cookies. Just4U site has issues with corrupted cookies.

anyone tried a 5back? It seems like they always give 4 fuels rewards @ $200.

Tried another computer in another state while VPN’ed into work. Still can’t log in. Hopefully just a site glitch and not Safeway catching on to people with multiple accounts and shutting all my accounts down.

People don’t do that. And this really isn’t the kind of public forum you want to bring that terrible idea up in.

I doubt it. I only have one account and I also have login issues.

Website back to normal now, able to login and add the coupon into my *singular* Just4U account.
