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 - 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.

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!) Another great one is available at www.coupontom.com [http]. And the nice thing here, you don't have to register!

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. You will also have trouble if you're buying a clearanced product that has the % off tag that has to be scanned.

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

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.
Safeway policy on B1G1F Q usage:

"On Buy One, Get One Free ("BOGO") offers, customer must purchase the first iem to receive the second item free. BOGO offers are not 1/2 price sales. If only a single item purchased, the regular price applies. Manufacturer's coupons may be used on purchased items only -- not on free items."

CPK - California Pizza Kitchen
DFW - Dallas Fort Worth

COUPON SOURCES: (also see S'momma's post #1 above for more info)

JFU DISCOUNTS and COUPONS (Linked to Safeway Club Card)
1) Coupon Center discounts:
a. $X.XX (specific price given) These are the electronic version of the SW in-ad clippable coupons. They are unlimited unless otherwise stated and can be used only once (one-time use).
b. SAVE $X.XX These are manufacturer eCoupons good only on the number of items specified (usually 1) and are one-time use (just like paper MQs)
c. $X.XX OFF These are Safeway eCoupons good on all the specified items in your transaction, unless otherwise stated (i.e. Limit 1, Limit 2, etc.). These coupons are one-time use.

2) Personalized Deals discounts:
a. $X.XX (specific price given) or FREE. These are tailored to a JFU members account. They are unlimited unless otherwise stated and are one-time use.

Important Notes:
Discounts a, b, and c may be stacked and may or may not result in overage.
Paper MQs may be stacked with discounts a and c only.


ELECTRONIC COUPONS
• Shortcuts, Cellfire and other e-coupons can be stacked for use on one item (or more, as specified by the eQ, e.g. $1/2 or $1/4). eQs may also be combined with paper Qs. eQs are one time-use only and should come off your account within 24 hours of redemption (unless there's a glitch).

Shortcuts – Register at www.shortcuts.com with your zipcode or one from the Wiki (see above), and update the profile with your Club Card info. Max number of offers that may be loaded to your card at any time is 75. To view all eQs loaded to your card at once: Click on the "My Coupons" tab >> click on the "Brand" label to sort the list into brand groups alphabetically and then click the "Print" icon on the page (not your browser icon). An preview list will open in a new tab or window rather than an output document. You can simply view and close the page, save to PDF or print to hardcopy.

Cellfire – Register at www.cellfire.com using the same process as above. You may load as many offers as you wish. Click the "Print Shopping List" button to view a single page of all eQs loaded to your card, sorted by brand.

Coupons.com – Register HERE [coupons.com]. Offers may differ from those at Cellfire and Shortcuts.

Softcoin – Register HERE [softcoin.com]. Offers are somewhat different from Shortcuts, Cellfire and coupons.com. More details here.

* Certain eQs are duplicated on both Shortcuts and Cellfire -- and that's a good thing! Big Grin All eQs per like item should come off at once at checkout.

Issues with E-Coupons Not Redeeming? File a dispute in the "contact us" section directly on each particular e-coupon site. You may need to scan your receipt and email it to the company. Please note that shortcuts.com does not have an automatic setup for card-refunding so you will NOT see SAFEWAY or affiliates listed as an optional store in the dispute form. You will need to submit generic contact comments with your store/card/receipt numbers and items and then shortcuts will send you a gift card for the amount you did not receive in e-coupons.

PAPER COUPONS
* Paper Qs may be combined with eQs in the same transaction. Check the following threads for paper Q possibilities:

Box Tops 4 Education [boxtops4education.com]

Today is the last day to *buy* a snapple 6 pack for the Snapple mail-in rebate. You can post mark it later in the month, but has to be on the receipt by today, 7/7.

My receipt said 0.00 so I purchased a separate 6 pack at Target for the mail in rebate, but I think other's have reported their safeway receipt didn't look like that.

I made a quick run to SW to get some popsicles to have at work(we are preparing for temps pushing 100 tomorrow). I brought not a single Q with me. I grabbed two packages of Popsicle brand treats. I had a $1 eQ come off my box of sugar-free creamsicles(orange and raspberry flavor). They were priced at $3. Not a great deal....but I wasn't looking for one. I just needed a cool treat!!drool

Asst. Mgr, who rang me up, told another asst mgr that they had just gotten a memo that stated they must wait for guest to scan card before scanning any coupons. I know I've seen that mentioned before. I don't have SCO, so I've never even tried to get my Qs scanned before my card.

The dairy Q books were taken down from my store. Total bummer, because I had wanted to grab one and use the International Delight Q in there. And my store STILL does not have the grill books. They have signs advertising them, but no actual books. Very annoying.
PM your addy and I can send you a few Qs from both of the book.

I have read in the past that only one O Organics Q will come off per transaction
I have failed to redeemed this O coupons several times till I recognized the problem. Look back at my receipts and none of them scanned in both 1 O-items and 2 O- items trannies. So far I have lost 4 O- Qs . Now I give this Q last and pay attention to the balance before and after cashier scan it. One time no way cashier could make it to work, so he just keyed in "$1 SQ". But yesterday, the Q did not work properly (it scanned but took only 1 cents off )at first and cashier tried and tried and tried, finally it took $1 off. Weird!

That is strange. I haven't had any problems with the O Organics q's. I have used 4, all of them on various items but so far they were all items that were over $1.00. The Q scanned as 0.00 but when I looked at the receipt, $1.00 was deducted off the item that I had purchased, on the line of that item instead of on the bottom where the coupons are usually located.

I used a $1.00 O Organics Q on a 50% off item...and I think it didn't work. Since then I've used it on the $1.00 tea bottles and $2.49 vegetable broth, in both cases it took the $1.00 straight off the price on the receipt, so $0.00 and $1.49, resp.

Quote from nuffsaid View Post :
I would like to point out that we are talking about using qs on trial sizes, with a small amount of overage going through beeplessly, as long as you buy another product with in the same family code.
We are NOT talking about buying crest toothpaste using the whitestrips q.

o is YMMV at safeway, and just about any other store around, please be above the board and use the qs as the wording states..

Thank you
Thanks for clarifying. I wouldn't want anyone to think I was suggesting using a q on a wrong product. I was just hoping for some overage to go towards some expensive items I was buying. But - lol - I got no overage either time since I was trying it out and it didn't work on either item. But I needed both items, so that's how life goes.

I just tried the pasta deal in the Dallas area and got nothing. Machine lights were on, but nothing printed. Has anyone else had luck here?
I'm replying to my own question nod but I figured some things out so I thought I'd add to what I wrote yesterday.

Today I visited a different Tom Thumb up the road from me and thought I would try the Barilla whole wheat pasta deal again. This time it worked. Then I was headed home which takes me right past the other Tom Thumb store which I was at yesterday where it didn't work, so I decided to stop in for more, thinking it was just a fluke or something.

At the second store again it didn't work. No tags on the shelf, so not a lot I could do. I did show the $2oyno coupon I got from the other store, explaining what I should have received.

She tried it at another register and again nothing. "The deal must have expired." she tells me and backs this up by asking a different lady who walked by who "knows these things". Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) Uhhhh . . . did you miss the part about it just working for me ten minutes ago?

Anyway, not one to argue here and can't really argue with stupid sometimes anyway, so I just had them refund my money and dropped it.

Working: at Hurstview and Hwy 26 store in Bedford,
Not working: at Harwood and Hwy 121 in Euless.

FF double dip alive and well today.

Did the usual SW Select Party Entree and two Lean Cuisines. $15.77 before coupons. After in-ad, $5/$15 FF code, $5 OYNO Cat and one $1/2 Lean Cuisine MFG Cat, I had a .11 overage which I applied to the 4-pack of OS sparkling juice ($2 sale price ending today). Total was $0.59 + $5 OYNO.
