Safeway Shopper’s Guide – Your Guide to Maximizing your Savings!

Whether or not you are a newbie to coupon shopping, a seasoned pro, or just an old-time couponer that wants to add Safeway to your stores, hopefully this guide will help you get the most out of your Safeway Trip!

What is Safeway?
Safeway is a retail grocer founded in 1915 in American Falls, Idaho. Safeway, Inc, is currently headquartered in Pleasanton, CA. The chain has grown to over 1700 stores throughout the Western and Central US and Western Canada. Safeway also operates some stores in the Eastern US. Safeway operates stores under several different names (in the 1990’s they bought out many regional chains). Safeway-operated stores include:

Carr’s – Alaska
Dominick’s – Illinois
Genuardi’s – Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware
Pavillon’s – California
Randall’s – Texas; Houston, Austin, and surrounding areas
Safeway – Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Colorado, California, Virginia, Maryland.
Tom Thumb – Texas; Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex
Vons – Southern California

How Do I Get Sale Prices at Safeway?
Safeway has a loyalty program called the Club Card. This is a card that you scan at check out and it will adjust the prices for items on sale. This card will also allow you to double/triple coupons IF that is available in your area. Also, certain promotions are tracked via your Club Card.

When do Safeway Weekly Fliers Come Out?
Safeway advertised sales and prices in their weekly fliers generally run Wednesday – Tuesday. The exception to this is Dominick’s, which keeps the Thursday – Wednesday schedule. Sometimes Safeway will put out Sunday – Saturday supplemental ads with extra advertised specials, coupons, and sales. There are often 72-hour sales advertised in the weekly flier with prices and specials only good on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

What Kind of Coupons Does Safeway Use?
As with other stores, Safeway accepts manufacturer’s coupons. In some areas, Safeway will ‘double’ or even ‘triple’ manufacturer’s coupons. For Example:

In Oregon and parts of Washington – Each week in the weekly flier, there is a Safeway Store Coupon or “Doubler” that when scanned will allow for 4 manufacturer’s coupons to be “doubled” up to $0.50. For example, if you purchased a product and used a $1.00 off one coupon for that product, the “doubler” would take an additional $0.50 off, making the coupon worth $1.50. The maximum amount the “doubler” can take off of any order, total, is $2.00.

In Illinois (Dominick’s) – There is no multiplication or special policies for coupons. Face value only.

In Texas (Randall’s/Tom Thumb) – Stores will double coupons up for and including $0.50 and triple coupons up to and including $0.39. This means that $0.50 coupons will become worth $1.00 off, a $0.30 coupon would become worth $0.90, etc. The store computers will automatically deduct this adjusted amounts if the coupon can be doubled/tripled (some coupons are coded not to double/triple). The original coupon will appear on the receipt as “scanned coupon” and the additional double or tripled amount will appear below it as “multiplied coupon”. So if you used a $0.30 off coupon, your receipt would show:
Scanned Coupon - $0.30
Multiplied Coupon - $0.60
In some areas, Safeway will only double/triple ONE of each coupon (and in some cases, only one of each BRAND or FAMILY of coupons). For example, if you were going to buy 2 item X, and use two of the same $0.30 coupons on the items, the first coupon would triple to $0.90, the second would stay face value at $0.30.

Super Coupons
Safeway will also issue in-ad coupons called Super Coupons. These coupons will be for an assortment of products and CAN be used in conjunction with a manufacturer’s coupon. Often these coupons are limited to one per transaction. These coupons also will have a minimum purchase requirement, usually of $10.

Store Coupons
Safeway will on occasion issue coupons for Safeway Brand Products such as Bright Green, Eating Right, O Organics, etc. Safeway will also occasionally offer booklets with store coupons in them in conjunction with a promotional event, such as Heart Health Month.

Printable Coupons

Safeway will accept printed internet coupons. In fact, they offer them in conjunction with Coupons on their website. Keep this in mind if you ever have an IP turned down, kindly remind the cashier that Safeway itself OFFERS printable coupons for their customers. Most of these coupons will be manufacturer coupons, but they will put out some store coupons for both Safeway branded items as well as other items. On these items it will print out SAFEWAY coupon or whatever Safeway store you are printing them for. Below is the link for each store to their coupon site:
Carr’s- Carr's Coupons
Dominick’s – Dominick's Coupons
Genuaudi’s – Genuardi's Coupons
Pavillon’s – Pavillon's Coupons
Randall’s – Randall's Coupons
Safeway – Safeway Coupons
Tom Thumb – Tom Thumb Coupons
Vons – Von's Coupons

Catalina’s
Safeway stores use Catalina machines (the machines that will print out coupons when you check out). These coupons will have the store’s logo that you purchased the item from printed on them. However, since they are owned by the same company, many have had success using coupons from one store front at another. For example, a Catalina with the Randall’s logo would work at a Safeway store and via-a-versa.

eCoupons
Safeway and its affiliate stores participate with other companies to allow customers to load eCoupons on to their shopper’s cards. Most of these coupons are manufacturer coupons and will automatically come off your total when you scan your Club Card.
* As of November, Safeway and its affiliate stores in some areas are not using cellfire or shortcuts coupons any longer. It is still available in some areas, so please check based on your location. *
Shortcuts – Grocery Coupons, Coupons, Free Coupons | Shortcuts.com
Cellfire – Grocery Coupons
P&G eSaver – www.pgesaver.com

Safeway has also partnered with Coupons to allow virtual versions of printable coupons to be loaded onto your Club Card as well. These coupons can be manufacturer or store coupons. To add these coupons to your Club Card, please visit Safeway - Official Site or your Safeway Affiliate’s website and go to the “Coupon Link” on the right hand side of the page. * Note – once you load a coupon on to your card via the Coupon Link, you may not print that coupon out as well via the Safeway website.

Does Safeway Offer Any Other Kinds of Promotions?
YES!!! There are always special promotions going on at Safeway! Below are examples of some of the most common.

On Your Next Order (OYNO) Catalinas
Safeway will advertise that when you buy (WYB) so many of product X, you will get a coupons for $Y OYNO. For example, if you buy 3 cans of biscuits, you will get a coupon for $2 OYNO. These OYNO Catalinas are just like cold, hard CASH and can be very fun to work with. For the most part, they do roll (you can use 1 Catalina from promo X to get another Catalina from the same promo) and on most of them, you can stack (buy multiples of the product to get multiple Catalinas). These special items will be marked in the store by white shelf tags with red stripes on the sides. You can combine other coupons with these OYNO Catalina deals. If for some reason you were supposed to get an OYNO Catalina and you didn’t, you can call Catalina Marketing at 1-888-826-8766. You will need you receipt and Club Card handy.

Multiple Item OYNO Promotions (Big Promos)
Safeway will also offer on occasion larger promotions involving hundreds of products. These are commonly associated with a certain time of year or special event. For Example, last year there was a Home For The Holidays promotion where if you bought $30 worth of qualifying products, you would get $10 OYNO. You can combine other coupons with these promotions to maximize your savings. Also, for these promos, if you have BOGO or Free product coupons for qualifying products, this is the perfect opportunity to use them as they raise your total with little out of pocket.

Multiple Item Merchandise Promotions
Safeway will some times offer promotions that if you buy $XX worth of specially marked products, you will get some item free. For example, buy $10, get a free reuseable bag, etc.

Long Term Tracked Promotions
Safeway also offers promotions where if you buy X number of a certain item you will get one free. An example of this is the Signature Café Sandwich promotion. If you buy 6 Café Sandwiches, you get the 7th, free. These are tracked using your Club Card and will print out at the end of your receipt.

$5 Fridays

Every Friday, Safeway will offer a dinner item for $5. This item is advertised in the weekly Flier. In the past, such items have been: Signature Café Pizzas, Signature Café Fried Chicken, Signature Café Roasted Turkey Breast, etc.

Answers in red, or at least what I assume they mean. They are addressed specifically in the original article.

OK, So I got Wags down good, but now I really want to try food. I get rid of so many food coupons and I hate it.
Thanks so much for all the good detailed info.
