Many smart shoppers are missing the Friday freebie at a certain popular grocery store. (Let’s hope it’s back soon!) However, Safeway may be filling in the gap with its Saturday Sampler offer. We noticed the offer from the grocery chain for several weeks now (via its shopper’s loyalty card), but our “investigative team” could not track down any details or confirm its availability to all customers.
As always, we attempted to vet the offer through official sources. In this case, we contacted Safeway’s regional office in Denver. However, we never received any response to our inquiry.
As a result, the following information is from our own research and unconfirmed by Safeway. Therefore, the offer may not be available to all customers and may vary by account. We decided to publish the offer because we always like MHOTC readers to be “in-the-know”, especially when it comes to saving money.
The digital coupon is available through the grocery chain’s Just For U program. It’s easy to find because it’s under its very own category — “Saturday Sampler.”
You must download the digital coupon to your account. The coupon is only available on select Saturdays, showing up in your account in the early morning hours. (The offer is not available every Saturday.)
The expiration date varies, so double-check it. The offer is often only redeemable on the same Saturday — just for the one day. While other times, it has an expiration date of a few days, usually the following Monday or Tuesday.
Safeway does not publicize the offer in its weekly ad, so it’s a little tricky to track the offer’s availability. The only sure-fire method is to simply check your account every Saturday morning for the offer.
MHOTC Tip: Safeway does not appear to heavily stock the complimentary item. Therefore, the shelves are cleared quickly by bargain hunters. If you want to snag the freebie, definitely get there as early as possible. (As we understand it, the grocery store does not issue any rain checks for the complimentary item.)
If we get any confirmation or additional information from Safeway, we will update the post accordingly. Of course, we will strive to publish the offer, when it’s available.
Today, Saturday, June 27, the Saturday Sampler offer is for a FREE Primo Taglio Classics sliced Swiss cheese (8-oz.) — reg. $4.99. The coupon expires on Monday, June 29. (FYI – We tested the offer this morning and it worked on the sliced Reduced Fat Lacy Swiss Cheese, as we could not find any regular version.)
