How about making a bit-o-money purchasing a gift card? This Safeway deal will work through January 5, 2013, but you have to load the coupon to your Safeway Club Card stat.
Here’s how to do the deal:
:: Create or log into your Safeway.com account (make sure your Safeway Club Card is linked to your account).
:: Click “Coupon Center” (not “Personalized Deals”) and then click “Special Offers” on the left-hand side of the screen.
:: Load the $15 off $100 MasterCard Gift Card purchase coupon to your Safeway Club Card.
:: Before January 5, purchase a $100 MasterCard Gift Card (make sure you swipe your Club Card or enter your phone number at checkout). You will be charged a $5.95 activation fee, so I suggest you purchase one $100 card instead of multiple smaller cards that add up to $100 or you’ll have to pay the activation fee on each one.
Here’s how the math works:
Buy (1) $100 MasterCard Gift Card at Safeway = $100
Pay activation fee = $5.95
Get $15 off (-$15)
Pay $90.95 for $100 Gift Card — making this a $9.05 moneymaker!
I’m not sure how long the coupon will be available to load to your Safeway Club Card, so at the very least load it now then decide if you’re going to do the deal.
Thanks, Thrifty NW Mom!
