Mod Edit: This will become the new Northern California Grocery Stores Thread.

Thank you to missusg and mcube for starting up threads for the individual stores for Northern California.

Due to how the timestamp works - it is with apologies to mcube (who started the Lucky thread) that your post is now #141 -- When a thread is merged the posts go in timestamp order.

Please note that there is a 30 day rule for reps -- so any post greater than 30 days old cannot be repped.

This message to remain for the next 24 hours so that our NoCal users can get used to this. Smilie

    Safeway Shopper??? I haven't really shopped much at Safeway the last few months so I'm not sure how this works. I earned a fuel reward and the cashier validated a coupon. I found a couple more of these in the parking lot so I naturally cleaned up the litter...Are these for the Chevron stations or for Safeway? Do you have to use your phone number and can these be combined? I'm hoping that I can use the two I found in the parking lot. I've never seen these validated coupons before. TIA

    Hi Sudilly!
    I've used my "fuel rewards" once successfully at a Chevron station. At the pump, I was able to enter the phone number attached to the safeway card to redeem my fuel reward. I entered the number before I selected which gas type, and it lowered the price. The sign on the pump said I could enter my phone number, or swipe my Safeway card but I don't have that physical card.

    I'm not sure what exactly you've found in the parking lot, but I didn't see any way at the station to enter a coupon number. I wonder if there is an option to take that into the cashier? Nothing about that was noted on the Safeway gas fuel promo sign at my Chevron, but maybe it's a new thing?

    HTH!

    Quote from rejoyce View Post :
    hi all, just wanted to ask a quick question about the latest P&G rebate. I'm wanting to get it done (I think it's due end of May but you must buy by 4/30), but i think i read on SD forums that you have to cut out the UPC and/or somehow include the graphic of the UPC for items like shampoos. Has anyone done this latest P&G beauty rebate and can confirm whether those things are really required? Also, heard maybe it's now before $50 AFTER q's instead of before q's? Thanks for any info before I attempt to find all the receipts and cut out UPCs off razor pkgs, etc.
    Quote from SavvySalukiGirl View Post :
    Nope, states specifically $50 BEFORE Q's. Also, no idea on cutting the UPC out... never saw that in the wording. The form is like many of the others I've done in the past 4 years... you write the UPC in, put the price, include the receipt. Nothing else.
    to further the confusion, just saw this in another threadConfused
    Quote from nedialka View Post :
    YES - spoke with their Cust Svc dept today and any coupons and ECB used will affect it.
    If you want to do the rebate do not use any coupons or ECB's as the manager said they will deducted and the rebate will be denied. HTH

    Hope they all work. Smilie

    The new store is huge and beautiful with SCO. About 10+ demo stands for tasting all kinds of food at noon time.
    Many people were there for the grand opening day, little bit hard to find parking.
    thanks more than I can say!

    So, I got my $15 rebate card from the Best of Beauty PG rebate.

    Even though the new rebate has the stipulation of including UPC (graphic possible), I did not include upc/graphic. I did it like I pretty much have been doing in the past (just write in the UPC) and got it.

    Wow, a food freebie I actually want! LOL - thank you so much!!!




    Free Chipotle Sofritas burrito Northern Cali text (new texters too)

    Text SOFRITAS to 888222 Before Apr 25

    And we'll text you a coupon for free braised tofu Sofritas burrito, bowl, salad, or tacos at any Nor-cal Chipotle



    What goes into making our Sofritas?
    We start with organic tofu from Hodo Soy that we shred and then braise with chipotle chilis, roasted poblanos, and a blend of aromatic spices.
    The result is a delicious, spicy tofu that will give vegans and carnivores something they both will love.

    Do you know if this will work with non-smart phones? Will the coupon actually be a text that you can show?

    On my iphone, I received an image text with a scannable coupon. No code, so I don't think this would work for non-smart phones :-(

    But, a quick email to corporate to explain that you are in the promotional area but don't have a smartphone might nab you an emailed version?

    I went ahead and gave it a try and I got 3 messages back, one of which appears to "video" (it has a play button). In any case, it is a tiny image with a QR code. I don't know if it's big enough to actually scan, but it's clearly a coupon, so I think Chipotle should take it. Big Grin
