There is a new coupon policy on Safeway’s website. The big news? There is a statement about ALL coupons requiring an amount spent. Before now, the policy was extremely vague concerning these coupons being before or after manufacture coupons. This statement clearly states that the limit on such coupons is BEFORE manufacture coupons! Read for yourself:
12. Purchase reward thresholds (if any) will be calculated based upon customer’s final price (after deducting Club Card savings and all other discounts and savings) before deductions for any manufacturer coupons. As an example (and not as an offer), if a $10 minimum purchase is required for a customer reward, a customer’s order at full retail would be $12, a Club Card discount of $1.75 applies, and a manufacturer’s coupon of $1 applies, the customer would be given credit for a $10.25 purchase, and would be eligible for the reward (assuming compliance with all other requirements) even though the customer’s cash payment would be only $9.25. The manufacturer’s coupon would not be deducted from the total for purposes of determining reward eligibility.
If you are having trouble with your “$10 off a $50 purchase” coupons you may want to go to the site and print this policy off.
Also of note in the new policy is the statement about stacking of paper and electronic coupons:
21. Safeway does not allow a customer to redeem two or more manufacturer coupons against the same item in a single transaction.
22. Coupon stacking policies for manufacturer coupons apply to paper and electronic coupons that have been loaded to a club card.
This one is disappointing but we’ve seen it coming for a while.
