Safeway operates Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, and Carrs. Albertsons operates ACME, Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, Lucky, Shaws, Star Market, and Super Saver. Safeway and Albertsons merged in 2015.

The last time Safeway updated its coupon acceptance policy was in July of 2015. The coupon policy applies to all of Safeway and Albertsons stores. You should take the time to read it over. Here are just a few things in it:

* Coupon stacking policies for manufacturer coupons apply to paper and electronic coupons that have been loaded to a club card.

Not all locations offer double coupon promotions and the terms of such promotions may differ by time and store.

* Paper coupons must be presented at the time of the purchase transaction. We will only accept coupons issued by Safeway or the manufacturer of the relevant product. We do not accept reproductions of coupons.

* Safeway will not accept manufacture coupons (including, but not limited to, coupons issued through a Catalina or other in-store coupon dispenser) that display another retailer’s logo or name unless that coupon is for a specific item with the same product identifiers as the product included in our customer’s purchase transaction is is sold and available at the store.

* We will not accept coupons unless they have an expiration date. Expired coupons will not be accepted.

* We will not accept coupons that, in the determination of Safeway personnel, appear distorted or blurry or are altered in any way.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
