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)
- $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.
