Safeway Ending Double ($1) Coupons in AZ?

safeway_coupon_sign(Thanks for the pic, Nicol!)

We’ve been hearing rumors for awhile, that Safeway was going to stop making coupons worth $1 (in AZ) soon, even with a specific date of June 3rd.  (Several of you have commented or emailed, saying your cashier told you.)  I only semi-believed the cashiers since I heard similar, for about nine months before Fry’s changed their policy.

But … I now believe it, though it can’t be confirmed.  Here’s my long story long …

Someone in Tucson sent Nicol the picture above (said we could share).   I know a picture is worth 1,000 words, but I still wanted to confirm it.  I called a couple stores in the Valley to see if it was going to be everywhere.  Two locations I called said it was true.  Another store asked me where I heard it, then told me they weren’t allowed to confirm or deny.  They were supposed to direct people to their corporate office.  Even though I felt like that was a confirmation, I called.

At corporate, I got someone who said she lives in Arizona and shops in Phoenix.  She said stores in Arizona don’t double coupons.  What!??!  The stores near me do and I’ve never heard that any of your stores don’t.  She acted like I was dumb and didn’t have a clue about Safeway or coupons.  I told her I had a website and wanted an answer to share with people.  That convinced her to go ask for a “real” answer.  Unfortunately, as “real” as it gets is that each store can do whatever they want.  It’s up to each manager.  I asked her why so many stores are deciding to end it now and her only reply was that not all ever did it and managers could do anything they want.  Okay.

So … my advice to you is to call your store or ask the next time you’re in.  I’d love to hear what you find out and for you to help others, too!

If you would leave the location (address and/or cross streets) and what they tell you, in the comments that would be great.  Facebook comments are fine, but I’d love a comment on the website below this post, too.  It will be easier for people to find and then they’ll all be together, to reference later.  If there are enough and it’s really varying, I might compile a list.  Honestly, I’m skeptical that it’s going to vary (at least for very long), but ??

I don’t even know which locations I called, since I just clicked on the map and called.  My regular store wouldn’t answer the phone and my secondary store is the one who told me to call corporate.  (It’s at Elliot & McClintock in Tempe.)

Here’s a link to store locations, so you can find your neighborhood Safeway’s number

And, just in case you want it, here’s the corporate number  1-877-723-3929

Verify Email Subscriptions! ~ Great Way to Follow (Also Facebook, Twitter, or RSS Feed)

email_updates2

If you don’t get the Bargain Believer emails, you may want them.  You will receive one email between 3pm & 5pm, usually around 3pm.  (No, I’m not sitting at my computer at that exact time every single day.  They’re automatic and I never know the precise time they’ll go out.) :)

They will show you everything that was listed since the previous email went out.  It’s an easy way to glance over what was posted that day and make sure you didn’t miss anything.   Fair warning:  You’ll be bugged everyday around 3pm, but you can unsubscribe at anytime.   :)

If you’ve ever signed up to get the daily emails and you’re not getting them, you probably didn’t verify your email.  There is a significant number of people on the email list that haven’t.  Sign up again at this link and make sure to go to your email and click on the link.  It should come right away.

Of course, you can also follow other ways . . . Facebook gets a little extra love sometimes, with quickly disappearing deals, reminders, and just more interaction.  If you use Facebook, it’s another great way to follow.

Make sure “follow” is checked after you have “liked” Bargain Believer (beside the “liked” button).  Even better, hover over the “liked” button and check “get notifications.”  When you’re on Facebook, a little box will pop up when we post something and it will also be listed under your “notifications” tab on top.  As always, the best way to not miss anything is to comment or “like” posts on the Bargain Believer Facebook page …. often!

Current Catalina Deals on List / Website Now ~ Thanks for Your Help!

catalina_machine

I promised you a list of current Catalina offers, if I felt we actually had a list worth publishing.  Well … thanks to so many of you, we do!

There’s a new tab on the top menu bar (second from right) that says “Catalina Offers.”  It will be there as long as I feel like we have enough listed to be useful.

Here’s the link directly to it, if you prefer to bookmark it, instead of going to the tab each time.

Thank you for sending in your notifications.  Keep them coming, please!  We’d also love to know if you test an offer at a store that isn’t listed.  Offers are often good at additional stores, but we’re not confident of that until someone confirms for us.

Help, Please! ~ Send Us Your Catalina Notices

yoplait_catalina(Thanks, for this and other Catalina notices you always send us, Marisela!)

We are wanting to have an accurate list of available Catalina offers, but can’t do it without your help.  Personally, I don’t get them very often.  Seriously — the machine hates me.  I have to dig in trash cans or bend down in dark parking lots to find them.  It’s a joke between us, behind the scenes.  I don’t get any Catalina love!??!  Between all of us who work behind the scenes, we have a list, but still not a complete list.  Help!

We want to let you know about them, when they match with a great deal.  And, if we feel like we have enough, I’ll create a page on the website, that you can get to whenever you want.   So . . . help!

If you get a notification of a Catalina (usually a printout, at the register), will you send the information our way?  We would love a picture, just for double verification and to get all the details we need, but if you can’t do that, typing it out for us is better than nothing and we’ll take it!  Please let us know what store you got it at, the exact products listed, dates, and amounts.  I’m only looking for the ones that tell you what you can save, on a future purchase, if you buy a certain product.  If you get a wonderful coupon and know what you bought that triggered it, I guess those are good, too.  :)

Also, if we have a Catalina listed that says “haven’t tested” and you try it, please let us know.  Of, if you try it at a different store and it works, we’d love to hear about it.  Catalina printouts often come from one store, but work at more.  You just never know for sure, until it’s tested.

Email Gina or me — or comment below any post on the website (It’s better if it’s not on Facebook since sometimes we don’t see every comment there, though we try!  If you send us a private message on Facebook, we’ll get it, so that also works.)  If you can snap a pic — even better!

Stay Active on Facebook or You’re Missing Out!

facebook_icons

Are a Facebook user, who likes to see all the updates from pages you have “liked,” like the Bargain Believer page?  (I think that sentence had too may “likes” in it!)

Ughhh . . . it’s so frustrating when I don’t see things I want to.  I feel like when I “like” a page, I’m telling Facebook I want to see their updates.  If I don’t want to see them, I’ll “unlike” them.  Facebook sees it differently.  :(

You need to get/stay active to see what you want on the Bargain Believer Facebook page!  We posts extra deals on Facebook from time to time.  You’ll want to see them, even if you get the email or stalk the website.

When you “like,” share, or comment … you are telling Facebook that you value the page and want to see posts.  You are also making it a more popular post, which will increase the likelihood that those who aren’t as active, will see the post.  Pretty please … like or comment on posts when you think they’re beneficial!

If you are active for awhile and you’re still not seeing everything, don’t forget … you can get daily emails.  Note:  You will not get them until you click on the confirmation email that you receive.  You will get an email almost every single day.  I realize that’s not for everyone.  If it annoys you enough, you can unsubscribe at any time.  We promise not to spam you, once you unsubscribe.  Well, we’ll never “spam” you, but you’ll get that one email each day.  :)

If all else fails … we have a website!  Check it often.  :)

Thanks for being here and giving us an outlet to share the deals we find.  We like finding bargains and it’s much more fun to share them!

Albertsons (some) Bought by Haggen ~ Plus 3 Safeway Locations in AZ

haggen

Just a heads up for some changes that are coming our way for some Albertsons locations (and a few Safeways) throughout Arizona.

A northwest grocery, Haggen, is purchasing 146 stores, 10 in Arizona.  They plan on converting the locations below to Haggen, during the first half of 2015.  I hope it will add competition and keep our prices low.  We are lucky to be in a state where the competition is high and grocery prices are low, in comparison to some areas of the nation.

We’ll all have to learn their coupon policy, among other things.  I haven’t even heard of Haggen, but I guess we’ll be learning soon!

You can read more details here(Thanks, AZ Central!)

Current brand Location
Albertsons 1416 E. Route 66, Flagstaff
Albertsons 11475 E. Via Linda, Scottsdale
Albertsons 34442 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale
Albertsons 1350 N. Silverbell Road, Tucson
Albertsons 174 E. Sheldon, Prescott
Albertsons 7450 E. Highway 69, Prescott Valley
Albertsons 1980 McCulloch Blvd., Lake Havasu City
Safeway 3655 W. Anthem Way, Phoenix
Safeway 8740 E. Broadway, Tucson
Safeway 10380 E. Broadway, Tucson

How Does Saving Star Work? ~ Changes Coming October

savingstar_logo

I just wanted to remind everyone that changes are coming to Saving Star, starting October 1st, 2014.  There are two major parts to their change.

  1.   The savings at Fry’s will no longer be automatic.  You will need to scan your receipt to get the credit into your account, starting 10/1/14.
    Register and then you can submit receipts/UPC images online or through their app.  You will also need the product’s barcode.

And, there are a bunch of retailers added, that will take scanned receipts.

  1.   The Arizona stores that participate are Fry’s, Safeway, Bashas, Food City, Albertsons, Walgreens, CVS, Target, Kmart, Dollar General, Family Dollar, WinCo, Costco, & Sam’s Club.  There’s a complete list here.

Here’s the general information, if you haven’t used Saving Star before.

With SavingStar, you can save eCoupons to your grocery store loyalty cards or to your Saving Star account and get credited when you swipe your card at checkout or when you submit your receipt online or through their app.  The savings doesn’t come off at the register, it gets credited to your SavingStar account, within a week or two.  (Their official time is 2 – 22 days. )  If you scan your receipt, you have until three days after the offer expires.  You can request your payment via Paypal, bank deposit, or gift card when you reach $5.

The only “automatic” stores in Arizona are CVS and Bashas’.  You will enter the store’s loyalty card number once and savings will trigger whenever you use your card and buy the specified products.

There is a “Healthy Offer of the Week.”  Every Tuesday a new coupon is available to load for fresh produce.

They also have one item each Friday that you’ll get 100% cash back!  You have through Sunday to make your purchase.

The Arizona stores that participate are Fry’s, Safeway, Bashas, Albertsons, Walgreens, CVS, Target, Kmart, Dollar General, Family Dollar, WinCo, Costco, & Sam’s Club.

Before the receipt scanning was needed, I just loaded everything and considered anything I received a bonus.  Now, it will take more effort and planning.  It will be easiest to head to CVS or Bashas’ for the Friday freebie, if that’s convenient and you need other items there.

Saving Star savings is not meant to be combined with paper coupons.  Here’s their official statement on that:

SavingStar eCoupons will work whether or not you combine them with other services’ coupons, but they are not intended to be used this way.  Generally, manufacturers state that it is against their policies for shoppers to redeem more than one manufacturer’s coupon for the same purchase.  Using in-store coupons in combination with SavingStar eCoupons is not a problem.  In the future, we may implement mechanisms to limit the combination of SavingStar eCoupons with other manufacturer coupons.

Facebook Problems? ~ Get Bargain Believer to Show Up in Your Feed!

facebook

I’ve received quite a few emails recently, asking how to get Facebook updates from Bargain Believer to show up in your news feed.

The very best way seems to “like,” comment, and share posts regularly.  The people that do that say they see all the updates.  As a bonus, Facebook shows the posts with the most love, more often.  So, we love all of you that interact with our page!  It helps those who want to get the updates, but choose to remain quiet.

If you are opposed to that, hover over “liked” and make sure “following” is checked.  You have hope, but it doesn’t seem like much.  Most likely, you’ve already done that and nothing has changed.  :(

Lastly, you can check to “get notifications,”  which is an option under the “like” button.  Some love get notifications, some don’t.  Try it for awhile and see what you think.  You can always uncheck it later.

If Facebook won’t show you the love, there are other ways to follow.

Email - One email per day, usually around 3pm — good way to quickly look & see what you missed

RSS

Twitter

You could give one of those a shot or just stalk the website page each day.

Anyone have any other insight about getting your “liked” pages to show up?
