rolling a deal

November 20th, 2011 at 12:28 pm

A week or 2 ago I bought $75 in Safeway gift cards and got a coupon for $10 OYNO. I spent the coupon, but still had several of the Safeway cards since I did the deal 4 times.

Today thru Wednesday Safeway has a deal if you buy $100 in certain gift cards you get a coupon for $15 OYNO when you spend $50. Gift cards include Kohl's, Penny's, Lowes, Outback, Sears, Macys and others. I used the Safeway gift cards I already had and bought a $100 Sears gift card. I buy walking shoes at Sears and jeans at Kmart, so I can use this card eventually.

Now I have to figure out how best to use the $15 off of $50 coupon. I think I'll go back on Wednesday and use it then. They have shrimp on sale that day only and I can stock up on that. So for the same $100 I got $25 in free groceries. I also got 4x gas points on the gift cards so another .40 off gal of gas or for me, buying 20 gals, I will save $8 in gas too.

I'm only going to do this deal once though because it's too hard to come up with $50 in groceries to buy at Safeway in one trip.

I finished reading the library book Tears of the Sun by S. M. Stirling. Sci/fi - very good. Good series.

    What's OYNO?

    While it sounds good, it is only good if you already buy groceries at Safeway (which is expensive in my area). Plus, to get the $15 OYNO coupon, you also have to buy $25 of groceries along with the $100 in gift cards (its in the fine print). That's the part I would have difficulty with. A few months ago I got a free $10 gift card when I bought $100 of gift cards from Shopper's Food Warehouse (a chain in D.C. area) with no other purchases required. There the groceries are usually cheaper as well.

    So its a great deal if you already have the Safeway GCs, otherwise its a so-so deal. Doesn't work for me, but might work for some.

    Single guy - I only bought the $100 in gift cards didn't have to buy another $25 in groceries, so I don't know if that's not true in my area or not. I got back and forth between Safeway and King Soopers. I usually only get what's on sale at either one and then buy things that rarely go on sale at Walmart. So it's a good deal for me.

    Single Guy - btw that fine print of needing to spend $25 to get the $15 coupon was for the turkey purchase not the gift cards. I checked when I was in today.
