Free or Cheap Safeway Coupon Deals–Week of September 21, 2011


Our Safeway trip this week benefited from the buy-8-items-save-$4 (i.e. 50 cents per item) mix and match promotion and a Bertolli catalina.  After coupons, everything in the picture cost $4.50, plus we also got a Bertolli catalina coupon for $1 off our next visit, so the final cost was $3.50.  Our Safeway store doubles coupons up to 50 cents; without doubles the total would be $5.50.  Coupon details:

Safeway brand pasta, $0.49 (buy-8-save-4 price), buy 2

Mission artisan tortillas, $1.49 (buy-8-save-4 price)

Use double coupon and $1.00/1 tearpad coupon

Final price: Free

Bertolli pasta sauce, $1.99 each (buy-8-save-4 price), buy 2

Use 2 double coupons and 2 $0.50/1 coupons from MDA booklet (this coupon expires 9/30 so now is the time to use it)

Final price: $2.00 for 2 (plus get $1.00 back via Bertolli catalina coupon)

Dole pineapple, $0.99 (buy-8-save-4 price), buy 3

Use double coupon and $1.00/3 coupon (found in-store a while back)

Final price: $1.50 for 3 cans


There are so many more items participating in the buy-8-save 4 promotion.  The weekly ad shows a few, but you can see the full list at the Safeway grocery delivery site: search for “Bertolli”, and you’ll see a link for “Special Online Offer” – click that to see the long list (online prices are very close to in-store prices).  For more detail on how to navigate the Safeway grocery delivery website, see our screencast video.


We’ll probably go back to Safeway later in the week for another frozen food run.  That might look something like this:

Safeway frozen pizza, $3.99, buy 2  (these are actually quite good)

Safeway sweet potato fries, $2.29, buy 4  (also qualify for buy-8-get-4)

  Pre-coupon total:  $17.14

     Use $5 off $15 frozen food coupon

     Use $1 off $3 Safeway frozen brand product

     Use in-ad coupon to make pizzas $3.49

     Use 2 $1.00/any pizza tearpad coupons

     Use 2 double coupons

Final frozen costs: $7.14 (Plus get $5 frozen catalina.  Note: the $5 catalina offer is not national – check your ad.)

So total costs for that scenario is $2.14.  Plus the sweet potatoes get you halfway to a $4 discount through buy-8-get-4 also, just add 4 other items (maybe more Safeway pasta).  It is a good week at Safeway!
