Late Night Run to Safeway 5/6/11

I had a Friday night date with Safeway! I bought two gift cards for this weekend's deals/shopping trips and paid an extra $8 bucks for everything else (and for better or worse [worse for couponing purposes], I don't live in a doubling area). The best thing is the balance of healthy veggies and snacks from this trip! 

Let's go shopping... (see below) 

Transaction #1
  • $25 Macy's Gift Card - Will use this card w/$10 off $25+ coupon good until 1pm at Macy's today.
  • $25 Starbucks Gift Card - Will use this card w/Starbucks Happy Hour Fraps promotion (half price fraps until 5/16/11 from 3pm-5pm).
  • = Total: $50.00
  • Got $10.00 towards next grocery purchase!
  • Note: Safeway has a Mother's Day promotion where a customer can get $10 back towards their next grocery purchase if they buy $50 worth of gift cards from select stores (see below). Knowing I was going to buy other items on this trip, I purchased the gift cards first in order to get the $10 bucks to spend on the following transaction.

Transaction #2

  • 3 Hallmark Cards $1.99 each (w/$5 towards next grocery purchase)
  • 10 Carrots .99/lb

    • ONE $1 off $5+ produce purchase found here on Safeway's SimpleNutrition Facebook Page (hit back button to print 2x)

After a different Safeway wouldn't take my Facebook printed Mqs, I emailed the manufacturer who apologized and sent me a VIP coupon good for 1 free bag. Thank you to the Snack Factory! For most of you, use the B1G1F Mq from Facebook (no longer available).
