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 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."

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.

4 BC Fruit Snacks $8.00
1 Sargento Cheese (super coupon 1.49)
1 Colgate (clearance, thanks fanC and ladybug) $1.24
1 RED paper towels .79
= $11.52

- $1.00/1 Colgate MQ
- $2 Doubler
- $4 buy 4 promo

= .02 get $2.50 OYNO

*Sargento cheese coupon from recent insert, works beeplessly on the Artisian Mexican blend. Beeps on all others. Cheese is always a snack in my house. Cool

I think this was a reference for the coupon being coded to work on less items.

Skinnycow $1 off truffles
http://bricks.coupons.com/Start.a...&r=&pc=&tc

I bought three today and $3 did not come off. The head clerk who profiled me last time was at the customer service center. She said I have to buy the same three items in order to get $3. I almost said to her, "you're full of s***". She was obviously lying. I told her that there is no wording on the ad that mention all three same items must be purchased. She gave me back $3 in the end after frowning a bit.

I didn't see this mention yet but you can make $0.50 for buying the Fiber One 4-packs yogurt. It's $2.50 each. There are two $1 ecoupons and $1 off printable on Betty Crocker's site.

This may or may not be a deal but it is my first time trying the product so I thought I'd post about it. Red Baron products have .55 coupons on them (start with a 5 so fine for doubling) and wow, the garlic cheese pizza bread is surprisingly tasty. They are on sale for 2.50 before q's.
