This post is LONG overdue... but with my pc dying and various other issues, I'm just now getting to it!
Back in December, Safeway sent me a $50 Gift Card to see how much money I could save. I'm pretty savvy, using printable coupons, electronic coupons, and clipped coupons, and I've saved as much as 80% at Safeway, so I knew this would be no problem!
But, guess what? I was stocked up on everything except for meats, and I decided to go to Safeway the weekend we were to get up to 2 feet of snow back in December. The storm was slated to hit on a Saturday and I went there Friday night before the storm was to hit. Along with everyone else!
By the time I got there, there was virtually nothing that I needed left. Not Safeway's fault - it was mine for choosing to go to the store then! Like I said before, I've gone there many times and saved a TON of money! Especially one time when they had their meats on sale - that was the time I saved 80% - I paired my purchases of sale items with coupons and saved a bundle! Even though most things I wanted were sold out, I was still able to save about $30 on what I was able to buy.
Safeway is one of the farthest grocery stores from me, but it's also one of my favorites. I go there when they are having a great sale that I just can't pass up!
All in all, despite my trip that specific weekend - I still love to shop at Safeway!
Thanks to Safeway for the $50 Gift Card! It really came in handy at a rough time (Christmas time is always rough here!)
