Safeway just for U

27 Jun

I have to admit that I haven’t had as much time for my couponing lately, but I’m still managing to get a few good deals here and there.  On my trip to Safeway last week to pick up milk and a few other sale items, they had a table set up near the entrance to explain the just for U program that was just launched here in AZ, and I’m guessing some other parts of the country as well.  You can register for the program online through Safeway’s website, or you can get their free app for iPhone and Android devices.

There are a few things I like about this new program.  First, they now have the paper coupons from their ad available to download directly to your Safeway Club Card so you don’t have to cut into the ad or remember the paper coupons.  Second, they have quite a few store and manufacturer coupons through the Coupon Center that go directly onto your Safeway Club Card.  Third, and my favorite feature, is the Personalized Deals.  When I first signed up, I got the free dozen eggs, plus deals for other items I regularly buy at prices lower than even the weekly sales ad.  These deals typically change week to week.  I’m now on my third week of Personalized Deals, and it’s showing I can get another free dozen eggs, milk at $1.57, broccoli crowns for $.99/lb, radishes for $.44/bunch, plus a lot more at lower prices than in the weekly ad.  Finally, there is My List.  You can add items from the weekly sales ad, items you downloaded coupons for from the Coupon Center, and items from your Personalized Deals you added to your card.  You can print this list from online, or, if you have the app on your Smartphone or Tablet, you can view it online as you go through the store and check things off as you go.

I have to say I am pretty impressed with this so far.  Our other big grocery store here, Fry’s, has downloadable coupons, but they send personalized coupons in the mail.  They also have an app for Smartphones and Tablets through it’s parent company, Kroger.  I have liked using the program for Fry’s, but I have to admit, this Safeway program is working better for me so far.  I like having more available electronically over paper, because I lose or forget paper coupons.  But, what works for me, I know won’t work for everyone, but I think it’s at least worth trying out.
