Most every month, Safeway has been running some sort of gift card promotion. This month’s promo looks to be a pretty good deal.
If you purchase two Visa or MasterCard variable load gift cards, you get a coupon for $15 off your next purchase at Safeway. (There is a minimum purchase requirement of $25 on your next purchase.)
My usual routine is to purchase the gift cards first, and then do my grocery shopping, so I don’t have to worry about the coupon expiring or losing track of it.
I purchased two Visa gift cards and loaded them with $500 apiece. There is a purchase fee of $5.95 each. The net value of the rebate is just $3.10 ($15.00 – 11.90), but I was able to earn points on my Amex Starwood card for the purchase.
The offer runs from September 10, 2014 through October 7, 2014.
