Being furloughed without pay from a job is always difficult, but coming right on the heels of the holidays when budgets are further stretched compounds the financial misery. Several food panties are waiving their normal income requirements to help furloughed government employees. Here are a few that we know about (and please let us know if there are others): [Read more…] about Food Pantries Open to Furloughed Government Workers
It’s even sweeter, when the roses are unexpected by the recipient just because you’re thinking of them. However, bargain hunters know roses can be an expensive gift. [Read more…] about Where Can You Get A Dozen Roses For $6.99 Every Day?
The offer is valid today, Saturday, January 5. Safeway is offering our heroes a well-deserved discount. The first Saturday of the month, the grocery store gives active duty, reserve and retired military personnel an additional 10% off their grocery purchase. Proper ID is required. (The discount does not apply to prescription drugs, alcohol, tobacco, gift cards, money orders, bus passes and lottery tickets. Other exclusions may apply.)
The discount comes at the end of your bill, after sale prices and coupons have been tallied. Ten percent may not seem high, but, when it comes to groceries, the discount can easily put $10 or $20 back in your pocket — even more, if you have a big family.
Safeway is making major changes to its Rewards Program. Now, you can choose to use points for fuel or grocery discounts, including FREE items. The fuel side stays the same, save 10¢ per gallon gas for every 100 points earned — up to $1.
Just remember, 100 points is now equal to 1 Reward. And 1 Reward is equal to 10¢ off per gallon of gas. For $1 off per gallon of gas, you will need to redeem 10 Rewards. [Read more…] about How To Use Safeway’s Rewards Program To Earn Gas, Cash or Free Groceries

We’ve had many debates with fellow bargain hunters about where to find the best grocery deals in town. For many, Safeway is at the top of the list. To be fair, we know many readers consider Safeway to be “too expensive.” However, we have found lots of savings at Safeway (especially since being acquired by Albertsons), so we’ve created a guide for navigating its aisles for the best deals and discounts. We have decades of experience as both Safeway customers and bargain hunters, so, hopefully, we can offer some “valuable” insight. (We’ve even been known to save upwards of 75% on our grocery bill.)

Fans of baked goods, run don’t walk to your nearest Entenmann’s Oroweat Bakery Outlet. (There are five locations in the Denver metro area under the name Mrs. Baird’s, Oroweat or Entenmann’s.) Owned by Bimbo, the stores sell Oroweat, Entenmann’s, Sara Lee, Boboli, Thomas English products and more. Mile High Cheapskates also report finding a variety of gravy & soup mixes, biscuit & cornbread mix, flavored pancake syrups, coffee, tortilla chips, fruit roll-ups, jams, jellies and more.
Most days, you’ll find a BOGO deal. Everything is sold below retail prices and nothing is more than three days old. (After three days, the goods are donated to local food banks.) Fresh items are marked down 20% and day-old items even more. [Read more…] about Get Some Extra Dough at Entenmann’s Bakery Outlets
Okay, this isn’t exactly breaking news. The policy changed on April 30 this year. I just can’t believe it missed my radar! King Soopers no longer gives customers an item for FREE, when it scans incorrectly. As of now, the grocery store’s Scan Accuracy Guarantee states that they will simply give you the lower price. This is definitely bad news for eagle-eyed bargain hunters and receipt checkers, like me. (It was always a welcome surprise to get an item for free.) For me, it happens more often than you’d think and not just at King Soopers. I see price discrepancies all the time at most stores. It’s just that most people don’t review their receipt. The policy change should not discourage you from taking a quick glance at your receipt. Keep checking to ensure you’re charged correctly. For savers, every penny counts!

Any chance you get to give kids a healthy snack is a good thing. To this end, Safeway is helping parents promote healthy eating. The next time you shop, stop by the produce department or customer service and ask for the necessary promo “club card.” (Families with lots of kids can get multiple cards, so each child has their very own. Every parent knows sharing with siblings can be tricky!) Then, every time the kids tag along on a shopping trip, they just flash their “club card” and get a banana or gala apple for FREE. (From our sources, the fruitful offer is open to kids 12 and under.) For finding the best deals at Safeway, review our Safeway Shopping Guide.
Thanks to our friends at Super Safeway for sharing this deal. They’re also a great source for finding bargains at Safeway!

Bryan may blather, but any who know me will tell you I rant. Back in 2015, I wrote about why I was kicking my nearest King Soopers to the curb. After the post went viral, the grocery chain execs promised change — and we did get some. As soon as I was confident my photo with a big red slash was no longer posted on the employee break room wall, I started shopping at my neighborhood store again. And most of my shopping experiences went well. Until yesterday… [Read more…] about Why King Soopers Has Disappointed Me… Again
