I suspect if I go across town to a Safeway in NW DC I would be able to use the printables but for now it's newspapers and loading coupons to my saving card. The deals won't be as great but let me show you how this will work. There are four places where you can load coupons onto your card.
On the homepage for Safeway click the coupon link image. To the far right is a rectangle titled Print and Digital Coupon. Click 'Get Coupons Now'.
You are now at the Safeway Coupon Center powered by Coupons.com. You can print coupons or load them to your card. To load them to your card you will have to sign up for an account and provide your Safeway card number (not your phone number).
Once you are signed in to your account you browse through the listings and click add on the coupons and they will be loaded on to your card.
When you scan your card at checkout the coupons will be automatically deducted.
2. Cellfire.com , P&G Saver, Shortcuts.com
There are other places that will load more coupons. To take advantage of these you will have to sign up with each service. Once you do it's very easy. There is even a Cellfire and Shortcuts app for the IPhone/IPod Touch. To use them:
1. Register your Safeway card
2. Load the eCoupons onto your card
3. Use the card and the cooupons are automatically deducted
You will find that some of the coupons will be the same at each site but this is to your advantage!
According Frugal Living Chick
"Often times, Cellfire and Shortcuts will put out eCoupons that are valid on the same product. You can stack these two and add a Manufacture's paper coupon. "
For example, at Safeway, Betty Crocker Brownies were $1.00 :
Betty Crocker Brownies, $2.00 for two boxes
-.75 off 2 Betty Crocker Brownies Cellfire Coupon
-.75 off 2 Betty Crocker Brownies
-.25 off 2 Betty Crocker Brownies from newspaper (then it's doubled)
=Free for 2 boxes
That's pretty good ain't it? This method is called stacking and this only works at Safeway and it's partner stores.
There are however limitations!
- These coupons cannot be doubled.
- You can only use one at a time. In the scenario above you can't buy 4 boxes and and still get the deal.
