I bought iTunes and Lowes yesterday combined with a $4/$40 personalized coupon I had on one card and the register did take off $4 when I bought at least $4 of grocery. I used self checkout so I could see the discounts come off as I scanned the gift cards and grocery items. Safeway likes to change these type of deals midway so there's a chance that this may no longer apply. I do know that any prepaid cards such as Visa, MC, Amex and store gift cards will not work. Regular gift cards such as iTunes, Lowes, Staples, etc do seem to count towards the purchase requirement.
I didn't have to buy at least the coupon amount in groceries with my $3 off $30, but with one transaction it would only subtract the grocery amount (which was $1.99) while in another it subtracted the entire $3 so I saved some more on the iTunes GC. Not sure why.
Thanks bought 2 $100 MC gift cards. Brought the hubbie to use our card and I used my parent's. We're in NorCal and was able to charge it on credit cards for extra rewards.
Also be careful which MC cash cards you get. The discount came up for the "gift cards" but there's also MC rechargeable cards that are not "gift cards" that don't apply for the discount. At the store I went to they were right next to each other.
Has anyone tried to buy 2 or more $100 MasterCards in the SAME transaction and if so, did you get the $15 discount for each MasterCard? Has anyone tried buying $200 using the variable amount card (activation fee $6.95) and received 2 discounts? I know sometimes for food products when they say limit one you have been able to get the same discount when buying more than one but all in the same transaction.
This is like the Staples deal last month, but in the Staples deal you got back a Staples gift card for $15 and the limit was 10.
