Safeway/Vons (JustForU): Save $10 Instantly On $100+ Visa Gift Card Purchase (Limit Of 1)

The Offer

No direct link, log into your Just4You account

  • Save $10 instantly when you purchase $100 or more in Visa gift cards

just 4u

The Fine Print

Our Verdict

Make sure to use a credit card that earns at a high rate on grocery store purchases. It’s a shame this only has a limit of one, but they always do with these deals.

How long does it take to get the club card after applying?

Cole

you don’t have to physically have it.. you just have to sign up a phone number online on safeways website, and load the coupon, drive to the store, and use your phone number.

yes, you could abuse this and do it multiple times.

Thanks, you answered my question below while I was typing lol.

So you load it on your account and pay for the next time you are in the store and buying groceries?

Cole

Yes, or I have bought just the gift card in a transaction

Does anyone know if you need the physical card? I signed up online and was able to add the deal to my account. I was wondering if you can just give them a phone # or need the card.

You can use your phone number at the cashier, either by telling them or entering it into the credit card terminal.

even better for my 2 Amex BCP’s
so after fees, it comes out to be 105.95*0.06 = $6.36 on Amex and 4.05 for buying it, for a profit of $10.41…not too bad for a quick and easy transaction…especially if i can get wife to do it for $20.82

David

You did the calculation wrong.
it should be 95.95*0.06 = 5.76.

Superchurn

yep, i did. it was $0.60 less lucrative than i thought 🙁

Cole
Cole

why wouldn’t you do the 500s?…..

Superchurn

cause i read the terms wrong…you’re right, would make more sense to have done the $500’s. Oh well, still got $10 off, but not optimal

On the website, it says “if you are paying with a credit or debit card. If paying with a credit card, customers are limited to (4) gifts cards or $200 per day.”

However, this is not strictly reinforced that I have successfully bought several gift cards over $200.

My store is really strict about the $200 limit on gc sales purchased with a credit card. YMMV

Also this should work for Albertson’s stores.

Found it on Acme’s MyMixx site; clipped!

I tried last month using my Vons account in Albertson, it didnot work.

safeway account at albertons. or an albertsons account itself. (still only get one per account)

Does this work on the 5 back?

Abe

It should. I have bought one from Vons (Safeway) here in Southern California last year the day before Black Friday and it did take off $10 on the 5 back visa with the Just4U.

Ken
Ken

If I am not mistaken, the added offer will be removed from your Safeway account if you use a Safeway card and therefore you won’t able to take advantage of the promo more than once. I have never tried the phone # approach, but I don’t think it will make a difference. Will give it a shot tomorrow and let you know.

bad timing for freedom….already got the spending done

Not sure if this is company wide but I was told by the cashier that all visa gc are cash or debit cards only when I went to my socal Vons yesterday. She told me the email came out last week. I’ll try another cashier and another Vons if that doesn’t work. I’ve bought them for years at this location. Coincidentally, the cvs next door went the same way a week before.

Bought a $500 no issues last week NorCal…probably try again later today hope what your saying isn’t true since this will let me finish off a freedom 7500 pts + $15 profit ^___^

Few SoCal Albertsons are still not accepting J4U coupons – anybody have success with using this coupon in Albertsons in SoCal?

Albertsons near me in Tujunga does not have Just4you set up at registers but manager will override and apply credit.

The Acme/Alberstsons deal is actually better. You get the 10.00 off the price of the 505.95 VGC, at S&S/Giant you have to bring 10.00 worth of groceries to register, so basically free food. If using the AMEX bcPref or any 3% cash back it is a great deal. And the S&S Master Cards have been a bit difficult to liquidate, but no too bad.

No store in NJ?

In store they told me I had to purchase the $100 gift card with the $5.95 fee so it only saves $4. Does that sound right?
