Walgreens: A quick run in!

June 11, 2010

I took a mental break tonight, grabbed my binder and walked out the door. I told my husband if I wasn’t back by tomorrow to worry 🙂 Just kidding, kinda. Have you ever just needed to get out of the house and walk around somewhere?

I headed to Walgreens because I figured if I was going to have the night get any worse it would happen there! Lucky me, even though I had a brand new cashier things went well. Although she did try and tell me that I can only use 1 coupon per transaction, not per item, but 1 TOTAL for the whole transaction. I said, “just humor me and see if it beeps” wow, it didn’t! Amazing. O.K. sarcasm off now!
Total Spent: $10.23
Total Saved: $38.71


Safeway/Randalls New Coupon Policy

June 10, 2010

Earlier today I posted about the new coupon policy at Safeway and affiliates stores (Randalls here) the most exciting part of the policy is this little tidbit….

9. Safeway will accept valid Catalina manufacturer coupons that are issued to a customer by another retailer. Yes – you read it right CATALINA coupons! This includes Walgreens Register Rewards and any other coupon you get that spits out of those Catalina machines at ANY store (as long as it’s a manufacturer catalina coupon).

Soooo, this means all those Register Rewards CAN be used at Safeway/Randalls as coupons! A catalina or Register Reward from Walgreens is actually a manufacturers coupon unlike CVS’s ECB’s they are NOT. Technically, the Register Rewards should be able to be used at other retailers, many people have had luck using them at Walmart. I however have never tried because I am not confident that any stores here would understand that they were able to take them.

Julia, went today to her Safeway to test it out (she brought her coupon policy) and had NO problems! First, she went to Walgreens, did a few deals there, got some Register Rewards and then went over to Safeway and used them there. THEY TOOK THEM ALL! This is going to be a great way for us to get meat, produce and other items that are hard to find coupons for!

** Now, because this is a new policy I almost guarantee that your cashier has no idea you can do this. Bring a copy of the policy with you, and politely show it to them. You might even have to assure them that you know it is new and they probably have not had the chance to read it yet…. 🙂

Safeway/Randalls New Coupon Policy

June 10, 2010

Julia did a great job of highlighting the changes to the new Safeway and Randalls coupon policy. You can go HERE and print a copy to take with you. Cashiers rarely know their coupon policy well in the first place, so when changes are made it can be very confusing for everyone. That is why it is very helpful to just have a copy with you all the time. This policy was revised 6/7/2010.

Manufacturer and Store Coupons:

4. Coupons cannot be applied against the free item received in any offer where a customer buys one or more items to get one or more items free. This means in a BOGO situation, you can not use 2 coupons and most likley means you can also not use a BOGO coupon.

5. Coupon amount may be reduced so that any combined discounts and coupons do not exceed the value of the item. See number 12 below. This means no overage, but hey at least they’ll take the coupon and adjust it down!

8. Safeway will accept valid manufacturer coupons that display another retailer’s logo or name. WOO HOO, huge bonus. You know all those “Target” coupon with the manufacturer logo on them, yep you can now use those at Safeway too!

9. Safeway will accept valid Catalina manufacturer coupons that are issued to a customer by another retailer. Yes – you read it right CATALINA coupons! This includes Walgreens Register Rewards and any other coupon you get that spits out of those Catalina machines at ANY store (as long as it’s a manufacturer catalina coupon).

12. The transaction amount may not fall below zero value, or go negative, meaning we will not give the customer money back. Pretty simple, no overage.

Internet Printed Coupons:

16. We gladly accept internet printed coupons. The same manufacturer and store coupon rules above apply to all internet printed coupons.

17. Internet printed coupons must scan at checkout.

18. Internet printed coupons must have serial numbers and follow an industry-standard format.

19. Manufacturer internet printed coupons must clearly indicate that they are a manufacturer coupon and have a valid manufacturer address on the printed coupon.

20. We will not accept “free product” internet printed manufacturer coupons. Most stores don’t accept FREE product coupons that have been printed at home.

Load to Card Club Coupons:

21. Internet and digital coupons that have been electronically loaded to a Safeway Club Card are automatically redeemed at the time of purchase after the club card number has been entered. All other coupon policies above apply to electronic coupons that are loaded to a club card. This one is clear as mud – can we or can’t we use an eCoupon as well as a paper manufacturer coupon? In the read more link below is states that you cannot “stack” and eCoupon and paper coupon but it states “Hawaii Only”. So looks like it’s a go here for the rest of us, sorry Hawaii!
