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!


Randalls/Safeway Mix and Match Sale

June 3, 2010

This week at Randalls/Safeway they have a ton of great deals. The Buy 8 SAVE $4 MIX & MATCH Promo is back!

Save $4 or more instantly when you purchase any 8 or more participating items in a single transaction with your Club Card. Look for items with these tags.

Thanks for this email from Melissa:

“I just wanted to let you know about a good deal I found at my Randall’s in Meyerland yesterday. They have the buy 8 mix n’ match save $4.00 instantly. Included in this deal they have Tostitos brand tortilla chips $1.77 when you buy 8. My Randall’s had a peelie coupons on each bag for an extra $1.00 off each bag. So, I did not really need 8 bags so I elected to get 4 bags at .77cents each, and 4 Ozarka 24 pack waters at $2.99 each. I thought it was a pretty good deal on the chips since I have never found the Tostitos brand chips lower than $2.50.”

Randalls/Safeway/Vons Betty Crocker deals…

March 25, 2010

Thanks To The Krazy Coupon Lady for this great deal! There are some good prices on Betty Crocker Baking products at Randalls/Safeway this week.  The items below have multiple eCoupons available in addition to some printable coupons.  I have shared before that in my opinion and after my research, it is okay to use an eCoupon with another paper manufacturer coupon.  If you come to me to ask whether it’s okay to use the ‘$1.00 off Betty Crocker Cookie Mix AND Frosting’ in addition to another eCoupon for the Cookie Mix and/or Frosting, I’m gonna say probably not, it’s murky and your mileage may vary.  All of the eCoupons would be deducted because there’s no system in place to stop that from happening.  The scenario I shared below is my best estimate of what is an appropriate use of the coupons available.

Betty Crocker Cake or Traditional Brownie Mix $0.69, when you buy 4

Use $0.50/2 – Betty Crocker Cake Mix AND Frosting, manufacturer coupon – (

Load Twice* $0.75/1 – Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® Cake Mixes, Safeway Only – (

Final Price: $0.76 (when you buy frosting), or $0.19 each, when you buy 4

*I was able to load this coupon again today after having loaded it last week.

Betty Crocker Frosting $1.50
$0.50/1 – Betty Crocker Frosting – (
$1.00 off – Betty Crocker® Cookie Mix AND ONE TUB Betty Crocker® Frosting, Safeway Only – (
