I’m sure many of you have received the email from Cellfire:
We have an important change to the Cellfire service that will affect your membership. Starting today, Thursday, Nov. 4th, Cellfire will no longer offer our coupons for use at Safeway. Safeway has decided to discontinue use of Cellfire’s save-to-card services. If you currently have Cellfire coupons saved to your Safeway card they will continue to be redeemable until their expiration date.
So, looks like the fun is over. Well, at least some of the fun. Most of us knew that the amazing eCoupon deals would change or be pulled at some point; I just wish they would have let me down easy as opposed to all at once!
But I am certainly not giving up on doing deals at Safeway. In fact, when I started my couponing journey almost three years ago, there were no eCoupons and I was still scoring huge deals. So, we’re just going to play Safeway 2008 style — just manufacturer’s coupons, store coupons, store promotions and double coupons.
But wait! Safeway is supposed to be rolling out a more robust and exciting eCoupon program directly from Safeway.com called Just 4 U. I am hoping that this program will add a little spice to our game and help us to get some great deals from Safeway.
If the folks at Safeway are reading this post, I would LOVE to talk to you about the Just 4 U program so my readers can be informed consumers — ready to follow the rules and bring you more business!
And I still heart Cellfire — I will continue to let you know when new Cellfire eCoupons are available to load to your Fred Meyer Rewards Card and QFC Advantage Card. And you know how much fun QFC has been lately.
We will work hard to find ways to turn our beloved Cellfire eCoupons in to more deals at Fred Meyer and QFC.
