New Policy, Safeway Takes Other Stores Catalinas

Woo-hoo! Went into SW today, had a King Sooper's cat for $3 OYNO, on a hunch I asked the MOD if they would accept the coupon since it was a manufacturer q and did not say the world "ONLY" as in "redeemable only at KS." She informed me they just got notice on Thursday that they were now accepting these coupons/cats. This INCLUDES Wags RR's. Keep in mind since this is a NEW policy YMMV or you may actually have to "train" your stores as my GF had to do tonight. She went into another location, cashier said he could not accept the coupons, she politely asked for a mgr. The mgr had to go in back and get a 3 page "update" that she had yet to read. She read the update about this new policy and took my GF's q's RR's and all!!! I had come across on another site about Military Commissaries now accepting cats so I thought if the Comm does it then why not other stores? My timing for asking was perfect!

Safeway - coupons policy
Woo hoo! Just came back from Safeway and cashed in $30 worth of RRs! I was not sure how many they would take since I already had coupons for most of my items, so I played the "how low can you go" game and kept giving them to her until the register beeped, but it never did!

I've avoided Wags RR's because it was always a pain trying to use them, but now with the new policy at Safeway.......they'll be seeing my smiling face much more often.

Has anyone tried this at a Tom Thumb? It is a Safeway affiliate, but the only people mentioning using their RR's are specifying Safeway. Let me know, and after I try it out at Tom Thumb I will let y'all know.

I took my printed copy of the revised policy to Safeway today. The manager was called over, I showed it to him and he said go ahead. Then he went and took a copy of the policy and thanked me. What a joy to see my savings as 99%

I went to Pak 'n Save today and they had no idea about the revised policy. I showed it to the cashier, the asst. mgr, and the mgr. It took them almost 10 minutes to allow me to use them, but I was able to use them. When I went to Safeway after that, I went to Customer Service to see if they were aware, and of course they were not. So after another 10 minutes at Customer Service they said go ahead, and thanked me for bringing this to their attention.

I went to Tom Thumb today and I had my policy with me just in case! My cashier was reluctant, but I explained it a little bit, and she started scanning the RR. No beeps, nothing! It was greatness. I was smiling from ear to ear and the guy behind me said, "You saved how much!?! That is great!"

On a side note. I found the dairy booklet (yeah) and noticed the Lucerne cream cheese $1/2 q, then I saw the in-ad q taking the price of the Lucerne CC down to .97. Could I use both of these together? It would make the CC under .50 which is a great price. Any ideas?

I decided to check with customer service at our Safeway before I even think about using an RR from Walgreens. The asst manager said he believed they "always" took these (yeah, right) but then pointed to the wording "redeemable at" and said it says you can only use it at Walgreens. As I tried to tell him it doesn't specify ONLY at Wags, he scanned the coupon and it was accepted by the computer without beeping. He seemed surprised, and I said "sounds like a winner to me!" He looked at the RR again and once again started to talk about the wording "redeemable at" as meaning it was only redeemable at Wags but he "would have to look into it". (yes I told him it's in their Policy and even told him Item#8 and 9 but they say nothing about the wording)

I just know this is going to cause a problem the first time I attempt to use an RR. And if they don't let me use it, Corporate is going to get another call from me once again, because I have tried to circumvent a problem but they seem insistent on creating one.
Will see what happens.

Change in policy related to accepting catalinas

My store did not accept Walgreens RRs. So I called corporate and the lady on the phone mentioned that the new policy is for catalinas specific to products (for e.g., $1 coupon for a particular product) and not for "$ Off you next shopping order". She also mentioned that they are going to update the Coupon policy on their website to avoid this confusion. People who are able to use Walgreens RRs at safeway/Tomthumb can use them quickly before safeway updates the coupon policy.

Thanks, avila, that will help me just avoid this entirely. Bummer they won't take "OYNO" coupons, but oh well. For those who can use military commissaries they do accept them (and their policy specifically states verbiage and ANY mfg coupon that is legit).

Odd how that scanner accepted my RR coupon yesterday, though!

I used the in-ad coupon and the coupon from the dairy booklet without any issues. The way I see it, the in-ad coupon is a sale price and the dairy booklet is actually the coupon, so in my opinion, it's not stacking. It even comes off on the receipt as different types of coupons. Combining the two made each package of cream cheese $0.47! A great price!

A break down of the new policy

Manufacturer and Store Coupons:
1. Coupons are redeemable only by a customer purchasing the specific brands and product(s) stated on the coupon, with the face value of the coupon deducted from your retail or club card price.
2. Coupons must be for products sold at Safeway and coupons must be presented at the time of the transaction.
3. Coupons are subject to advertised offer limitations and all limitations and restrictions on coupon.
4. Coupons cannot be applied against the free item received in any offer where a customer buys one or more items to get one or more items free.

Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs $4.99
Store Promo: Buy One Oscar Mayer Hot Dog, Get One Free
Use ONE $1.00/1 coupon (this is saying we can’t use two)
Final Price: $3.99 for two packages of hot dogs

5. Coupon amount may be reduced so that any combined discounts and coupons do not exceed the value of the item. See number 12 below.

Thank you! This is going to be valuable for those of you who’ve had trouble with cashiers refusing to accept a $2.00 coupon for a $1.98 product, or any coupon that exceeds the item’s value. This simply states that the cashier may manually enter a reduced discount of $1.98 instead of the full $2.00 face value discount of the coupon. [I would like to point out that, for any store who reduces the coupon value so as not to pay overage, you should make sure your cashier is hand writing the adjusted discount on the coupon and crossing out the original face value. Without doing this (and possibly even when they do), the store will be reimbursed for the full value of the coupon. Most stores have this policy against paying overage; it is very understandable and I don't have any problem with it, but the truth is that the store is usually pocketing the difference between coupon value and product value.]6. Coupons have no cash value.
7. Accepted coupons must be Manufacturer or Safeway store issued coupons.

Okay, so Safeway won’t accept a Target store coupon or any competitor coupon; we already knew that.
8. Safeway will accept valid manufacturer coupons that display another retailer’s logo or name.

Awesome! This means that manufacturer coupons printed from Target.com, or a coupon that says “valid at your local supercenter” with a Walmart logo CAN be redeemed at Safeway!

9. Safeway will accept valid Catalina manufacturer coupons that are issued to a customer by another retailer.

Double Awesome! This is the highlight of the new policy!! This means, you can use Catalinas from from other stores at Safeway! This includes Walgreens Register Rewards, Target Catalinas, Albertsons Catalinas, just to name a few. You can use the straight $$ value catalinas and they scan through without any hitch! You can also use a catalina coupon for Milano cookies from Target, or $1.00/1 Cheerios Catalina from Albertsons at Safeway!
10. The coupon must have an expiration date and be presented within valid dates.
11. Coupons are void if they appear distorted or blurry, are altered in any way or copied.
12. The transaction amount may not fall below zero value, or go negative, meaning we will not give the customer money back.
13. All sales taxes are paid by the customer at the full value of the item.
14. All bottle deposits on the purchased and free items are paid by the customer.
15. Safeway reserves the right to refuse any coupons at its discretion.

Internet Printed Coupons:
16. We gladly accept internet printed coupons. The same manufacturer and store coupon rules above apply to all internet printed coupons.

You hear that ladies? They’re accept them gladly! Hold em to it now! We want to see smiling faces people!17. Internet printed coupons must scan at checkout.
18. Internet printed coupons must have serial numbers and follow an industry-standard format.
19. Manufacturer internet printed coupons must clearly indicate that they are a manufacturer coupon and have a valid manufacture address on the printed coupon.
20. We will not accept “free product” internet printed manufacturer coupons.

What rule is missing here? That’s right! They finally listened to somebody and got rid of the “printable coupon cannot exceed 50% of the item’s value” rule! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve called corporate and left messages telling why that was the dumbest coupon policy rule I’ve ever seen! All you ladies who’ve been getting the run around- it’s time to do a happy dance!



Load to Card Club Coupons:
21. Internet and digital coupons that have been electronically loaded to a Safeway Club Card are automatically redeemed at the time of purchase after the club card number has been entered. All other coupon policies above apply to electronic coupons that are loaded to a club card.


Doubling of Coupons:
22. Check with your local store regarding ‘double coupon’ advertised promotions where customers will receive double the coupon face value off the regular or club card price up to the advertised limit. Not all locations offer double coupon promotions. Limitations and restrictions for double coupon promotions may change at any time. Changes will be posted in store only.
23. Safeway does not allow a customer to redeem two or more manufacturer coupons against the same item in a single transaction.
24. Coupon stacking policies for manufacturer coupons apply to paper and electronic coupons that have been loaded to a club card.
25. If a customer presents two coupons for the same item in a single transaction, Safeway will only accept the first coupon to be applied in the system.

Hawaii residents, today is the first time I’m not jealous of you! My only guess is that food is harder to keep stocked in Hawaii and they’re trying to avoid shelves being cleared by coupon ladies stocking up.

For the rest of us, this is awesome news. My inbox has been brimmed with emails complaining of a supposed ‘new policy” where you cannot use more than one copy of the same coupon. If there was such a rule, Safeway would have included it right here. Since they didn’t, you need to print this policy and take it with you to your store. As long as you don’t live in Hawaii, flashing this policy around once should solve your problem. Safeway or any store will never accept a copy, meaning photocopy, but they will accept multiple valid printable coupons.




Rainchecks:
26. Rainchecks expire 90 days from the date issued and are accepted at any Safeway store.27. We reserve the right to limit Rainchecks quantities based on product availability and advertised limits.
27. We reserve the right to limit Rainchecks quantities based on product availability and advertised limits.
28. Rainchecks can be written for a limit of no more than 3 items unless otherwise stated in the advertisement.


We may change this policy at any time. All coupon redemptions are subject to the policy in effect at time of redemption. Policy changes may not be advertised. The current policy will be posted at the customer service area in each store.
