Mod Edit: This will become the new Northern California Grocery Stores Thread.

Thank you to missusg and mcube for starting up threads for the individual stores for Northern California.

Due to how the timestamp works - it is with apologies to mcube (who started the Lucky thread) that your post is now #141 -- When a thread is merged the posts go in timestamp order.

Please note that there is a 30 day rule for reps -- so any post greater than 30 days old cannot be repped.

This message to remain for the next 24 hours so that our NoCal users can get used to this. Smilie

    Good morning neighbors!

    I went to the grand opening of the new Safeway in Berkeley last night. It was mobbed! But people were friendly, so it was kind of fun. I came away with a ton of Qs, some of which I'm not going to use. Thought I'd check here and see if anyone can use them. They all have a short expiration date -- 10/28.

    $5 off Rancher's Reserve meat (min. $20 meat purchase)
    $3 off a dozen roses
    $2.99 Signature Cafe sandwich
    $3 off wyb 1/2lb or more Primo Taglio lunchmeat in the deli
    $3.99 8-inch Safeway Select artisan single layer cake
    $1.50 for a dozen Safeway artisan bagels
    $2 off Safeway Select prepack coffee 10-12oz
    $1 off Safeway Select frozen appetizer
    $1 off Lucerne 6-pack yogurt
    Some of the Qs say "limit one coupon per customer" in the small print.

    I have 5-10 of each of them. Let me know if you can use them and I'll send 'em to you!

    I also have some others that I'd like to trade: Free Safeway Select artisan french bread, Free Safeway Vitamin C tablets (500 mg, 100 ct), Free Safeway apple juice (64 oz), $10 off a $50 purchase, and $1/1 any O Organics product (doesn't expire til 3/31/13).

    Hope everyone is having a good Saturday!

    Whee I found some "magic" codes for SW!
    ...........
    codes:
    1.25 =10391
    1.00=10393

    ETA: need coupon to put in slot.
    exp on my cats is 10/7 and 10/30, in above order
    New CatQ generated each time I bought veg, not in trans #4

    If anyone wants to use my card with the 1.33 O veg price, PM me. It's personalized price, no limit and expires 10/2
    Even w/o Qs or SCO, you should get the $1/1 each time you buy one so they'd be .33 ea after 1st one- as long as you can do several transactions.

    t
    anyone use these?
    I got scared today & wondering if it's paranoia

    Sunday I was told by SCo attendant that I had to scan any Qs, she saw me inputting codes. Fortunately, I was done & don't often go to this store

    today I did a few trans at a closer store and got a little 'spidey sense' that I was being watched. I did see attendant look over my shoulder on my last trans, while I was looking for my cc to pay. After I found it and finished she seemed fine & left.
    but in the parking lot, a guy in a truck asked if it was OK to "ask me some questions". I assumed he wanted to sell me something, so I told him I needed to pick up someone (the truth) and didn't have time. He said "I know, but.." and I think was going to park. I skedaddled without fastening my seatbelt, but afterwards wondered if it was security.

    I didn't do $0 transactions or anywhere close-paid $1.50 to $6 each, but
    I won't be using codes anymore, just for my own sanity.
    & I think I'll go thru reg. checkstands if I go into a SW for awhile..
    Never know how JFU is going to work or what the rules are...
