Default Safeway's current push

And it might not be a typical ruse.
Seems some smart buying habits can save some serious $ with their new plan http://www.safeway.com/IFL/Grocery/H...http:LogonView
Anybody here been using it?

There was a "just for U" insert in Safeway's circular in MidWeek this week. I kept it with the intent to sign up. Just haven't gotten around to it yet!

If it's worthy, I'm curious if they'll keep it or eventually toss it as most promos go...

BTW, the Beretania store is moving... somewhere. Why? I don't know.
Heard they were going into the old Schuman Carriage bldg. in the next block DH, next to Times, but that doesn't seem plausible, too small.

They are going to re-locate at the old Schuman Carriage lot. It doesn’t seem big enough, but there are several buildings there, and I guess it’s just bigger than it seems. They say it’s going to be as big and similar in style as the Kapahulu Safeway store.

I signed up, now where are my free eggs? I clicked on the free eggs coupon and nothing happened (well, something happened - it said I hadn't clicked on anything and the free eggs coupon vanished). Lies or what? I sent a comment (there's no indication as to how one should submit a question online) asking about the free eggs. I'll update if anything results.

Are they going to improve the intersection of Beretania and Piikoi so that drivers going up Piikoi don't block the intersection?

So is this different than the current Safeway card? I barely shop at Safeway because it's out of the way, I wonder if it's worth it to sign up.

I just signed up - saved $4.50 on 3 items when I went to the store today. I think it's a great idea! and they were items that were already on my list. you have to go online and pick your items and add them to a list. They actually show up on your club card when you go to the store. I had printed out my list just in case but it worked fine.

I signed up today, too. Thx for the club card info, anapuni. I guess I didn't read that far into the web site to notice that! I had to stop by Safeway for lei tonight and, while paying, I was told I was entitled to the free eggs! I wasn't going home at that point so didn't pick them up.

Did I read correctly that the coupons that one adds to his/her list/club card can be used over and over 'til they expire? I'll need to figure out an easy way to keep track of which coupons I add. I printed out my list to date but I'm hoping for those products to go on sale and use the coupons at that point. I wonder if Safeway has timed the coupons to not overlap a sale of those products.

WB...it's up to drivers to obey the law and not block the intersection. Where's cynsaligia when we need her?

I signed up. I think it's great... I don't have to cut coupons anymore.

Just one thing, tho. I'd like it better if they would automatically load my card with all the coupons instead of me having to go online and select them. I know myself. I'll be in Safeway, thinking, Dang, I shoulda selected strawberries... or ice cream... or whatever. I think I'll just click on almost everything, just in case.

sansei = this is not an offer for the club card. it is for additional savings for all the folks who already have the club card. if you can go online to www.safeway.com and sign up you can save a lot more $$$

I certainly didn't read correctly! Coupons are one time only!

The personalized deals are unlimited. The coupon center is mostly one time only.

Seems they're losing big $ by limiting purchases made only on-line/before entering, whacks out potential sales via forgetfulness and the ever-wallet-draining impulse buying.

Ron - they are not offering "on-line purchasing". The program gives one the opportunity to go on-line, put together a shopping list that adds the savings to the club card. Those savings show up when you actually pay at the register. I had chosen 4 items, only purchased 3 of them so I still have one deal left on my card if i decide to buy the item later. Also, its much easier to get coupon savings since i don't subcribe to the sunday paper.

I liked the program and will definitely use it when I plan to shop at Safeway. It took me about 5 minutes to add the items to my card and it was a considerable savings for me on items I was going to buy anyway.

oh, and I still had room for a couple of "impulse" buys

Maybe I should have said 'on-line selections'. But if they allow you to buy other sale stuff at the store then that's cool.
I don't market shop much at all, and my one daily item isn't part of the items marked for this, but it's always on sale anyway.

Sorry, I guess I just assume that people have to buy groceries so therefore they go to the grocery store - whether Safeway, Wal-Mart, Costco or Sam's Club. Or to the commisary. Even a Farmer's Market is a form of grocery store.

and of course Safeway allows for other sale purchases. The program is meant to benefit shoppers, not curtail them.

Okay, so I guess I had 'loaded' the free eggs 'onto' my card and that erased the item from the offers I could select. When I got to the store, I just picked up the eggs (large) and got 'em free - nice. The other coupons had prices that exceed my normal cost (sale prices were not as good as usual) so I bypassed the rest. For me, this is just another added complication to shopping. I prefer to read all the ads once a week and plan my purchases accordingly.

Believe it or not, we just might agree on something! The only way I think I can make this coupons-loaded-on-the-card thing work is to remember to print out the list(s) of coupons as they're loaded to my club card then have that available when I read the ads. I tend to forget real coupons so I'm anticipating I'll forget my list, too! Due to small space living, it's not practical for me to use coupons to buy and store groceries that won't be used within a short amount of time. We'll see...

I have a lot of "senior moments" so I always have a shopping list with me. I usually prepare my list after checking ads which is usally done online since I don't get the newspapers. So, this program works for me.. For others it's an inconvenience. To each his own.

I remember reading a news article where they plan to redevelop the Schuman lot so the new store would be double the size of the existing one and they would actually give up some land to form an additional lane on Piikoi.

Ian Lind has an interesting take on this Safeway personalize discount. Be sure to read the comments.

I registered in the afternoon, went to the store (Beretania) right after work. The items i had chosen showed up with the discounts on my receipt. I got the free eggs and was very happy. Maybe I just got lucky but I didn't have any problems. I'm happy with the program and will definitely use it on my (usually) once a month visit to Safeway. I usually shop at Foodland but with the new discounts, may start shopping Safeway more often.
