Stacking savings at Safeway – over 40% back in cash/rewards.

I love it when the stars align to create a stellar deal-stacking situation such as this one at Safeway. If you play your cards right (pun intended) and have the right cards, you can currently get over 40% cash/rewards back, plus a few credit card points/miles and 4x fuel rewards.

Here’s how the deal works:

1. Check your Amex account to see if you were targeted for the “Supermarket Offer.” If you were, you can get $10 back when you spend $50 at a supermarket. You can redeem this offer three times (in other words, you can buy three $50 gift cards).

Through Tuesday, June 17, they will give you $10 off your next purchase when you spend $50 or more on gift cards from this list:  SearsLowe’sBass Pro ShopsBuffalo Wild WingsLane BryantRed RobinDomino’sExpress,FandangoToys “R” UsJiffy LubeTGI Friday’sJCPenneySephoraRegal Entertainment Groupand Club Penguin

3. Swipe your Safeway Rewards card to activate the deal at the register.

4. Purchase your gift cards, one at a time (I know! Annoying but necessary). Use your synced Amex card.

5. For a limited time, Safeway is also offering 4x gas rewards points on gift card purchases. I couldn’t find details on when this offer ends, but it’s happening now!

For every $50 gift card you buy, this scenario will pay out:

  • $10 statement credit on your synced Amex card
  • $10 coupon for your next grocery purchase (printed at checkout)
  • 50 Amex points (woo hoo!)
  • 4x gas rewards points

This is a great little deal to start off the summer.

Have you used it yet?

Comments

  1. Northern California, 9 amex cards checked, no supermarket.

    Wife and I got it each on one of our cards.

  3. Rebecca says:

    Bummer, not for me.

    Plz keep the deals coming!

  4. Around here (Northern WA State), the 4 X the Gift Card points end on the 24th. If you look at their promo material, it will be in very small writing on the bottom of the display what the pull down date of the advertising is, which is usually the last day to get the deal.

  5. For the AMEX sync card cashback, if you use the same card for each transaction to buy the gift cards, would you get the cash back per transaction or is it one time period?

      NITIN – You can use the same card on the same day (or even during the same shopping trip!), just make sure to have 3 separate transactions.

  1. […] If you’re still interested in gift cards despite the above posts, consider heading over to Safeway to triple dip with: 1) the Amex grocery Sync offer (if you’re one of the lucky ones to get targeted); 2) the Safeway $10 off dads & grads gift card offer; and 3) Safeway’s Gas Reward 4X promo.  Points & Pixie Dust has the details here.
