Several of you have expressed recent concern with the Safeway coupon policy in Arizona due to recent changes with the policy at Safeway and Von’s stores in California.
I never addressed the changes in the California changes affecting us in Arizona, because California is an entirely different market – what they work with there is not equivalent to what we work with here.
We are fortunate in Arizona to have a very competitive market – Fry’s takes coupons to $1.00, Bashas doubles coupons regularly (and occasionally takes them at $1.00) – and Safeway has been accepting coupons up to $1.00 now for quite some time. We have Winco that will be coming up very soon in the East Valley – I recently drove by there (yesterday) to see them putting landscaping out in the parking lot – I feel like they are opening very soon!
I recently contacted Safeway regarding their policy – as so many of you were concerned that the recent changes in California would affect us – and lend way to them discontinuing double coupons – Safeway let me know that there are no plans to discontinue “all coupons are worth up to $1” at this point in time – any changes that may be coming in the future will always be communicated well in advance.
Make sure you’re taking advantage of their promotion – not only are we fortunate to have coupons worth “up” to $1, we also have Just 4 U – that allows us personalized prices as well. Many of us are using their new feature, and loving it quite a bit.
