I’m officially in love with Safeway’s delivery deals. I put my order in today and am looking forward to my loot arriving on Tuesday . Here’s what just I ordered:
Because BOGO sales are calculated in the final invoice, my actual total will be $28.59. Here’s how I’m thinking of this order: I’m getting 9 blocks of Tillamook cheese for just $3.17 each and 2 jars of salsa and 2 bags of green beans for free! It’s hard to beat that deal with coupons in the store.
Now that I’ve done the deal myself, here are some tips:
:: You’re getting free delivery with the CJSAVINGS code, so you may as well choose the most convenient delivery option. Click the “1 Hour window” option — you’re ensuring that your delivery will arrive in an one-hour window. It’s your chance to live the high life! If you order by Monday afternoon, you should be able to get delivery before Thanksgiving.
:: Play around with items in your order to get as close to $50 as possible.
:: Get what you will use. Don’t be concerned with the items your order contains (it’s the old “what will the delivery driver think of me?” bit) — if you go through cheese in your home, I don’t see a reason why not to order 13 loaves of Tillamook Cheese for $36.87 ($2.84 per loaf delivered to your door — that is beyond a stock-up price!). The cheese is on sale through November 25.
What am I doing to do with 9 blocks of cheese? As long as the cheese remains sealed, it will last forever in the refrigerator. Seriously, months. We will just put it in the back of the fridge and open one when we need it.
If you’re super-concerned (I know some of you don’t believe me on the “not-molding” guarantee), bust out your food processor, shred a few blocks, put the cheese in a quart or gallon-sized freezer bag and freeze it. Don’t try freezing a whole block of cheese — it messes up the consistency and you won’t be pleased. Shredded cheese freezes fabulously and you won’t be able to tell the difference when it thaws.
I’d love to hear what you all are ordering from Safeway’s delivery service! Leave a comment. And remember, the $15 off code is only valid until December 31 and for first-time orders!
