Bricks coupon master list:http://www.couponsinc.com/corp/so...ntlist.asp

Problems printing Bricks coupons? First posted here: This may fix your problem! Just follow the instructions in this thread to alter the url to suit your browser. If you want to rep alanisrox69 (Derek), he posts often in the CVS threads.

Problems scanning Q's at SCO? First posted here:

Credit for this goes to Skibum but since he hasnt posted it yet I'm going to go ahead and take the credit - On the SCO at Safeway if your coupon doesnt scan you can manually input the numbers using the enter PLU function. Basically its the option where you would enter produce. This is a super handy feature and I had no idea that it worked for coupon entering.

A coupon database is available at www.Families.com once you've registered there. Good resource for checking availability & location of coupons for specific items you're interested in. (Thx to errickson for the info!)

This thread has good info on what coupons are available, what insert they were in and the date.

Also keep in mind the Entertainment Book typically has money saving coupons for Safeway listed quarterly. And, if your store doesn't object, these coupons sometimes do not beep based on dates.

Coupon use at Safeway
Safeway usually issues store specific coupons via various formats...newspaper ads, mailers & emails. You can sign up for emails on their website.

Their coupons tend to scan fine at any store within their brand, even if the stores are not in the same area. For example, Tom Thumb coupons work at Randall's, and vice versa.

Their coupons also tend to scan fine at any store within their brand, even if the coupon says it's good only at a certain store. The best example of these are the ones issued when a store is remodeling or for a grand opening.

Usually, their coupons scan fine when you are using two different types of their coupons on one product. For example, $1 off Tide from a newspaper ad and $2 off Tide from some other source. This only works when the two coupons are obviously different (check the codes). I am not sure if it would work if you were only buying one item and trying to use two store coupons. I've never had a reason to test that.

Their coupons can be used in conjunction with manufacturers coupons, even if that causes an overage, although they won't pay you to take products out of the store! laugh out loud

Some stores don't accept internet printable coupons, there is a corporate policy on what coupons they take, and some stores follow this policy to the nth degree. If you get to one of these stores, try the store down the street, it is probably much more coupon friendly.

Manufacturer coupons for free or bogo items tend to attempt to give you credit for the price of the item without the card discount, but they usually beep for the cashier to approve the coupon.

Self Checkout lanes (SCOs) are a great way to get out of the store quickly. You can use your coupons except all BOGO, FREE and coupons over $3.00 (may be $2) require cashier intervention. This can be a hassle if you have very many of these type of coupons.

Stores in different areas have different promotional deals regarding the doubling and/or tripling of coupons. If you see someone commenting on it here, you need to check what your local store does.

And while coupons may scan fine, the cashier you're dealing with can make any of the above YMMV. Smilie

Official IP Q Policy First posted here.

In order to insure that we accept only legitimate printable internet coupons, Safeway has adopted the following store policies and guidelines:

• Do not accept coupons that do not have a manufacturer’s bar code or manufacturer’s redemption instructions.
• Accept printable coupons only if they scan properly at checkout.
• Do not accept more than one “copy” of the same coupon per customer.
• Do not accept coupons for Free Product (other than a Buy One Get One Free Offer that requires a purchase of the like item).
• Do not accept coupons for more than a $5 value or for more than 50% of a product’s retail price, whichever is lower.
• Do not accept printable internet coupons that do not have an easy to read expiration date or that extend more than twelve weeks. Most printable internet coupons may expire 30-45 days after you print them.
• Do not accept coupons that appear out of proportion or blurry, or are obvious duplicates.

Coupons may be rejected if they appear to have been altered in any way. Printable internet coupons are nearly always printed using the same technology and therefore have a standard format, with very specific security features, including a unique serial code.

To verify if an Internet Coupon is valid, see your Front End Manager. Printable internet coupons can be checked for validity at http://www.veri-fi.com

SAFEWAY SCAN ACCURACY POLICY: First posted here:

I asked for their scan accuracy policy and this is what they replied with:
Also, please find below our scanning accuracy policy at your local Safeway stores:

We guarantee the accuracy of our electronic checkout system. Safeway will give you the item free, if the price on your detailed receipt is different (higher or lower) than indicated in advertisements or shown on the shelf price tag. You will only receive one of the items for free with the remaining items at the correct price.

If the item is on sale and register rings up the regular price, the store will only pay the difference on the item. If a customer is overcharged on a Buy One Get One special, not only will they receive the free item, they will receive the overcharged item free as well. It is subjected to a limit of one.

This does not apply to liquor, tobacco, or fluid milk items. In these cases, you will get the item at the sale price instead of free.
Power Pump Rewards details here.

And here's a post with a scan of the whole brochure!

Alternative to power rewards for fuel program, first posted here: So does everyone else know about redeeming gas points at Arco? I've paid little attention to gas deal b/c it's so far to nearest station. Then went to closest gas last night (which we're blessed is cheapest gas around here). There was a TV screen above pump, playing an ad about SW points. And said below "redeem here"!! Searched "arco" on this thread- no results. I've been using all my cards to do HTH several times and don't have a lot on any one - $300+ is the highest. Time to buy GCs! And go back to figure out all the details on this promo. Just found this.

SAFEWAY B&M CHAT THREAD:
Another thread has been created for all the OT chat in the Safeway Deals thread. Hopefully this thread will help decrease the OT in the deals thread and we all have a place to chat! Click here to visit the Safeway Chat Thread.

WHERE CAN I FIND THE COUPONS EVERYONE HAS?
See this post.

SW IP POLICY
I was just on the SW website to print some of their Q's from here. [safeway.com] Just above the "get coupons" button, there is a link that has SW's printable Q policy. Here's the direct link. [safeway.com] Might be a good idea to print a copy and carry it with you.

10% INFO:

Question :How Do I get the 10% Discount added to my card?
Answer : Call Safeway at 1-877-723-3929 or 1-800-SAFEWAY and ask. If denied call back as many times as necessary to get the discount applied to your card.
Alternate means of contact would be an email. Same thing--email as many times as you need to in order to get the discount.

**KEY** There is no secret to getting this discount. The people who have it either have a store that has been remodeled or a grand opening. Others have called, called, and called again until they have received it.

Question :When does the 10% come off when there is an instant discount for buying certain number of qualifying products eg: Buy 5 cereal get $5 off
Answer: The 10% discount ALWAYS comes off BEFORE any promos. So if cereal was $2.50 each, when you buy 5 total will be $12.50. With $5 instant discount the total will be $7.50. However, the 10% comes off of $12.50 and not off $7.50. So you will get an extra $1.25 off your total.

Question: When Safeway $x/$yy coupons are used, when does 10% come off?
Answer: If you had a $50 purchase and you used a 10/50 coupon, 10% will be off of $40 only.

Question: When Safeway Super coupons are used, when does 10% come off?
Answer: If the Safeway coupons automatically scan, 10% comes off BEFORE super coupon. So, if you had a $5 item and after super coupon the item is $2, you still get 50 cents off if the coupon automatically scanned. But if a cashier input it manually there's a chance that you will only get 20 cents off.

Also, slightly off topic - there is info on starting your own terracycle group to raise money for schools on the capri sun boxes. They give you .02/pouch. If anyone has a group, maybe we can somehow get the pouches there. It'd probably not be by mail since cost of postage would be higher than the .02/pouch.
My kids elementary school has been doing this since Feb. It is part of our Go Green Committee. If anyone in the Austin area wants to donate, I'll be happy to take them off your hands so they dont end up in your trash cans! PM me.

POST Honey Bunches of Oats CAT 4/24/09 - 5/17/09 First posted here:

Post Honey Bunches of Oats 4/24/09 - 05/17/09
Buy (3) get $2.00
Buy (4) get $3.00
Buy (5) or More and get $5.00 .......
Coupon Off Your Next Order...
Confirmed $5.00 CAT printed for Honey Bunches of Oats. Not part of LW but $12.50/5 - $5CAT = $7.50 or ~$1.50 each (not sure if there are Qs for it to sweeten the deal, but pretty cheap for Strawberry and Peaches. IMO)

$3.00 CAT also printed for 3 $1.29 crescent rolls (couldn't find any cinnamon rolls), $1/2 and $2 OYNO are still printing for Arrowheads.

I have learned to check the expiration on stuff at Tom Thumb. I have found many kinds of lunchmeat, Lunchables and Deli Creations that were near or past the expiration date. This is quite frankly shocking to me for a store that is so expensive and supposedly provides such great customer service, cannot even rotate stock properly.

Sorry for not being a DEAL, but time is valuable too and I don't want to spend any more of mine taking back expired stuff to get my money back!

Wait, here is some deal talk: NTX Ozarka Cat now expires May 19! Whee

Has ANYONE tried starbucks to see if the $1.50 cat got re-upped? I have not had a chance to get back there and try it.

I tried the Starbucks coffee yesteday and no $1.50 Cat.Frown

Agreed on the expiration dates. I have a lot of kraft dressing from last deal that is near expiring, but fortunately, i've been able to use them for marinades. My choices were either already expired or near-expiring. On another note, I bought the starbucks tonight in Virginia and no cat. Interestingly enough, the "best by" date on the coffee was may 9th 2009! laugh out loud I guess these kinds of deals are Safeway's way of clearing out stock.

did some research on the CAT..and here is what i have found. (its good news)

4/20-5/17/09--
another store chainhas this promo 4/17--5/13..so its active now, and thru this promo anyways...Smilie

"Buy 2 or more Ziploc brand freezer bags and receive a checkout coupon for $1.25 off your next shopping order. Good on your next visit."

Looks like it is on Freezer bags only


someone called catalina, and they said there is like 45 products on the list.all had freezer in the name....

multiple people tried this deal, and it prints a catalina for every 2...even in the same transaction.

so we need to test this now....because best case is $2.50 for 12 boxes of ziplocs is a awesome price.

There is no specific in the $1.25 CAT that I got tonight. I just happen to pick Quart size because I needed it. Also, the $1 peelies that were on the Ziploc containers found at Krogers work great with these.
