Wow look at what Jenna got for free at Safeway. Here’s how she did it.
Southeastern gravy mix on sale BOGO (2/$.99) – through 12/28
Use (4) $.50/2 coupons from 10/26 SS insert (expires 12/31)
Use (4) Safeway doubles (-$2)
FREE after coupon & double
Note that opinions differ on weather or not this complies with Safeway’s coupon policy. The coupon policy is fuzzy on a few matters. On one hand this can be seen as using a coupon on a free item. On the other hand, this can be seen as using the $.50/2 coupon on two items that cost $.99 together as a pair. Safeway says that you cannot use a coupon on a free item but it does not clarify how a coupon that is off of two items should be considered. We are not looking for a debate.
Most of these deals use a Safeway double coupon, which is available at Oregon & SW Washington (Wahkiakum, Cowlitz, Clark, Skamania & Klickitat Counties) Safeways only. You can double up to 4 manufacturer’s coupons per transaction, up to $.50 each. Safeway is inconsistent from store to store about doubling internet printed coupons. The double coupon is found in the weekly ad at the bottom of the middle page and look’s like this:
Safeway stores are inconsistent from store to store with their double coupon policy. The following is taken directly from Safeway’s Just4U coupon policy on their website:
Check with your local store regarding “double coupon” promotions where customers will receive double the manufacturer coupon face value off the regular or club card price up to the identified limit. Not all locations offer double coupon promotions and the terms of such promotions may differ by time and store. Limitations and restrictions for double coupon promotions may change at any time. Changes will be posted in store only. “Double coupon” promotions do not apply to any internet or digital coupons except for applicable internet printed manufacturer coupons. These explanations and restrictions on “double coupons” apply to any promotion that increases the value of a manufacturer coupon beyond its face value.
