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.
