I’m headed to Safeway to learn better ways to save money! #safewayj4u

I am not a couponer. I am in awe of my friends that can spend hours pouring over circulars and comparing them to coupons to find the best deals at their favorite stores. But me? I just don’t have the patience for it.

But let’s be honest here, I DO like to save money. Who doesn’t? But I like to do it without jumping through 50 hoops.

So on Thursday I’m headed to the Safeway offices with a few other local bloggers to learn more about them, and their new program, Just 4 You.

No more clipping coupons, new deals every week… on thing things I BUY.

just 4 you


Have you tried out Safeway Just 4 You yet? How do you like to save? Is there anything you want me to find out during my trip? Leave a comment below!

  1. I think this is a great plan.

    I clip coupons, and leave them at home (almost without fail!). So to be able to load the savings digitally would be great.

    I don’t have any specific questions, but I look forward to hearing what you learn.

    Looks like a great way to save. We don’t have any Safeways around here unfortunately.

  3. We don’t have a Safeway but like you I don’t have the patience for clipping coupons. If a story makes it easy for me (like loading them electronically to my card), then I’m all about them!

    interesting. I’ll have to check it out. I clip coupons, but never have them with me and end up having them expire before I use them.

  5. I don’t clip coupons, I shop mostly at Trader Joe’s and find their house brand to be affordable without the need for coupons (and funky ingredients!). When I do shop at a ‘mainstream’ grocer, I use the store app on my phone to scan as I shop & receive ‘exclusive’ discounts because I use their app. It would be great if store would simply import all of the coupons to their app & apply the discount at check out. Imagine all of the paper & time that could save!

    We don’t have a Safeway near us, but I’ll be interested to see what they’ll be offering going forward.

  6. Sounds like an interesting program, but I would wonder if you could really score deals as good as those you could get from combining coupons with sales.

    • I’ll be writing a post as we had a workshop today. We learned that you can in some circumstances, you can stack your coupons with the just 4 You sales. We all went on an impromptu shopping trip, and one of the bloggers in attendance still saved 70%!! Stay tuned for my post!

  7. Sarah L says:

    Do they send you email reminders to load your coupons to your Safeway card?

  8. I agree that these kinds of things can be really good when combined with coupons – I will look forward to seeing how it works out for you!

    safeway is the only place we shop at.. love it:)

  10. This is a great idea! Who doesn’t like to save a little money here and there! Thanks!

  11. Kelly A. Tanner says:

    That sounds great. I like to hear that grocery stores are trying to help shoppers save!

  12. Jessica Cox says:

    This is a great idea because I can never find coupons that I need.

  13. Jen Whitten says:

    Although we have no Safeways here, but participate in similair programs with other local grocers! And, I AM A COUPONER! LOL! I LOVE it, it’s fun, and I manage to do it with 4 kids?!?!? Sometimes that is…lots of keep up work and research, clipping, and such to do! Right now, I probalby have 20 inserts that haven’t even been clipped…meaning they’re of no use and hopefully they don’t expire before I get to them! So for weeks like this, I’d love to rely on this new program of Safeways!

  14. Ashley Thomas says:
