Last week I blogged about Safeway offering $15 off the purchase of any $100 or more MasterCard gift card. This week, they’re changing things up and offering $10 off your purchase of $100 or more in American Express gift cards after you load the offer on your Safeway Club account via JustForU.
This offer is free for everyone to participate in, and is valid one offer per card. You can mix and match any amount of American Express gift cards, as long as the grand total hits $100 or more. But because of the purchase fees that are attached with each of these gift cards, the most lucrative use of this offer is by purchasing a $100 American Express gift card.
Even after the $6.95 purchase fee that comes with the $100 AMEX gift card, you are still making $3.05 in profit from this offer. While this may not be worthwhile to drive completely out of your way for a Safeway, but if you happen to be planning on doing groceries at a Safeway by the end of May 28, 2013 (when this offer expires), load the offer to your Safeway Club account to get in on this.
And of course if you use your favorite miles/rewards/cashback credit card for the purchase, you can also earn a little extra something.
In order to get this offer:
- Download the “Safeway” app for your iOS or Android device
- Log in or create your own JustForU account and connect it with your Safeway Club account (free to create). Make sure you your Safeway Club account tied to a valid phone number, as that is how you link your account at checkout in-store.
