I was at a friend's house on Friday, Jan. 24th, and they showed me the deals they got on some fresh meat: $1.49 a pound on various types of meats! So I knew I had to go there that weekend, as the sale was only for that weekend!
Sunday I lounged around, did some laundry, cleaned off my DVR a little bit, and then at like 7 pm I realized I had forgotten to go to Safeway for their sale.

It was sooo funny at the store too - the guy working the register scanned all of my meat first and was saying that their sale must be great and I told him that it was! After he scanned my meat, he showed me that the total was $109 and some-odd cents. He asked for my card just because "he was curious". My card took it down $60!!! I was so shocked but ecstatic! Imagine my surprise at the end when he said that I saved $87!!
Plus, my local Safeway has a gas station and I earned a PowerPump reward for $.10 (I think that's $.10/gal but I am not sure!) so the next time I need gas, I will be going to Safeway!
To be honest, I don't really shop at Safeway unless I am over there because I have other cheaper stores closer to me, but I couldn't pass this sale up!
Share your sales and bargain shopping deals!
