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.

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

Credit for this goes to Skibum - On the SCO at Safeway if your Safeway coupon doesnt scan you can manually input the numbers using the enter PLU function. Basically its the option where you would enter produce.

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

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 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! (But the same cannot be said for J4U and a paper manufacturers coupon.

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 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 or if you are buying a gift card.

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 item 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."

Smin asked a question in last thread that I'm afraid will go overlooked now:
Quote :
If I have 2 separate discounts on my J4U account for the same item, will both discounts come off? Also, what If I have a physical manufacture q in hand, can I use that too? Sorry, I don't use J4U much to know...Thank you
If the discounts are MQ & SQ they will both come off
If both MQs, only the highest value should come off
there have been glitches in the past that have allowed more than one to come off with single purchase

You can use physical Q if JFU is SQ, and like above sometimes there is a glitch that allows eMQ and physical MQ. You only know ifyou try, chances over 90% it will not work.

There is one consistent DD we call "goody", but that has to do with in-ad Qs

someone less tired than I pls chime in and/or clarify this

Except the "goody" might be challenged by the current disclaimer in the in-ad coupons which states: "coupon.....cannot be combined with digital coupon." Has anyone had a "goody" since they began printing that?

perhaps at one time

now

well, there is this:

http://arcweb.sos.state.or.us/pag...5_007.html

845-007-0015

Advertising Media, Coupons

(1) The Commission prohibits advertising through:

(a) Handbills that are posted or passed out in public areas such as parking lots and publicly owned property; and

(b) Point of sale items on premises where the advertised product is not sold.

(2) The Commission may prohibit advertising through additional media consistent with the objectives in OAR 845-007-0005.

(3) The Commission allows manufacturers to give consumer rebates coupons on malt beverages, wine and cider. Progressive-type coupons which provide a larger rebate when progressively more alcohol is purchased are permitted. An example of this would be a rebate that offers $5 for the purchase of one six-pack/bottle but $12 for two. All advertising associated with rebate coupons must comply with applicable state and federal law and regulations. The manufacturer must furnish rebate coupons to all licensees carrying the product for off-premises consumption. The manufacturer is responsible for the redemption of rebate coupons. No retail licensee may receive any money or similar benefit from a manufacturer for the redemption of any coupons. All rebate coupons offered by manufacturers in the State of Oregon must meet the following requirements:

(a) Coupons must be redeemable only by mail, except that a manufacturer may offer instantly redeemable coupons for products sold to consumers under the manufacturer's retail privileges at the manufacturer's licensed premises;

(b) Coupons must bear an expiration date;

(c) Manufacturers must require proof of purchase;

(d) Coupons must be valid only for adults of legal drinking age.

(4) The Commission may require withdrawal of the rebate coupon if the manufacturer does not comply with the conditions of the rebate coupon or Commission rules.

(5) The Commission allows manufacturers to offer cross promotional rebate coupons that provide a discount or rebate on food, non-alcoholic beverages or non-food items with or without the purchase of an alcoholic beverage product (for example, $1.00 off tortilla chips with the purchase of a six-pack of Corona beer). Such coupons may be offered for generic or branded products (for example, hot dogs or Armour hot dogs) but may not be limited to exclusive store brands or products. All manufacturer issued cross promotional coupons must comply with the requirements in section (3) of this rule.

(6) The Commission allows retailers to issue coupons on alcoholic beverages provided that the retailer bears all costs associated with the redemption of the coupon and receives no payment from any manufacturer. Examples of retailer issued coupons could include rain checks issued by a retailer that allow a customer to get the advertised price of an alcoholic beverage product when a product is temporarily out of stock, coupons or certificates that provide a discount on meals including alcohol to be consumed at a licensed premises, coupons that provide a discount on any products the retailer sells such as 10% off of a bill of $50 or more, and customer loyalty programs such as club cards or frequent customer discount cards. Retailer issued coupons may be instantly redeemable or mail-in. The retail licensee must pay for all discounts on alcoholic beverages provided under retailer issued coupons.

(7) Use of coupons must conform with the principles of OAR 845-013-0001. A licensee who violates any section of this rule commits a Category IV violation under the Commission's sanction schedule (OAR 845-006-0500).

845-007-0020

Restrictions

(1) The Commission prohibits advertising if it contains:

(a) False or misleading information;

(b) Claims that the alcoholic beverage has curative or therapeutic effects;

(c) Claims that any government agency endorses or supports the alcoholic beverage;

(d) The requirement of purchasing an alcoholic beverage in order to receive a prize or merchandise unless the manufacturer or wholesaler donates the prize or merchandise to a charitable cause or community non-profit entity;

(e) Material so appealing to minors that it encourages them to purchase, possess, or drink alcoholic beverages;

(f) A person displayed drinking an alcoholic beverage;

(g) Material that encourages the use of an alcoholic beverage because of its intoxicating effect;

(h) Statements or illustrations that an alcoholic beverage causes athletic or artistic success;

(i) Material that encourages excessive or rapid consumption.

(2) The Commission prohibits any advertising of the promotional practices that are prohibited under OAR 845-006-0345(10).

(3) Outside the licensed premises, the Commission prohibits advertising of an alcoholic beverage for on-premises consumption if that advertising contains both a specified limited time period when a price or discount is available and either the price of the alcoholic beverage, or a specified dollar amount or percentage discount on the alcoholic beverage. Examples of specified limited time periods could include terms that reference a time of day such as "night" or "hour", a day of the week such as "Thursdays", a specific date such as "St. Patrick's Day", or similar terms.

(a) Examples of advertising that is prohibited under this section include: $2.00 draft beer on Fridays, $4.50 well drinks 4:00–6:00 p.m., $1.00 off draft beer on Thursdays, half price gin and tonics 6:00–9:00 p.m., or ladies night margaritas $4.00.

(b) Advertising the regular price of an alcoholic beverage outside the licensed premises, such as on a menu in the window or on a website, is allowed as long as there is no mention of a specified limited time period for those prices. Advertising that uses terms such as "happy hour" is also allowed as long as there is no mention of an alcoholic beverage's price or discount.

(4) Outside the licensed premises, the Commission prohibits advertising of an alcoholic beverage for on-premises consumption where the expressed or implied meaning is that a customer, in order to receive a reduced price, would be required to purchase more than one drink at a time, such as "two for the price of one", "buy one — get one free", or "two for $_____".

(5) Advertising is considered "outside the licensed premises" if the advertising is visible or audible from the outside, including advertising on a website or on a telephone answering machine recording. Responding via email or telephone to a question from a member of the public is not considered advertising and thus is allowed.

(6) The Commission prohibits advertising that violates OAR 845-015-0130 (Advertising a retail liquor store).

(7) The Commission prohibits manufacturers and wholesalers from giving retailers point-of-sale items and advertising that the financial assistance laws prohibit (ORS 471.398 and 471.400 and OAR 845-013-0050).

Removal of Objectionable and Non-Conforming Advertising

(1) Licensees and retail sales agents must remove any sign, display, or advertisement if the Commission finds it violates these rules.

(2) The Commission will specify a reasonable time period in which to remove the objectionable advertisements.
