Were you aware that Safeway has a new fuel points program? Safeway has teamed up with Chevron/Texaco to bring you a fuel points program based of what you spend at Safeway on your groceries. I have to admit I never really shop at Safeway so I wasn't sure what to expect,While I was at work I snagged their weekly ad out of the mail & found deals that excited me right away. If you are a club member their website offers coupons which can be loaded onto your club card.
It turns out this week they are having quite a few 2 for $6 sales along with lots of BOGO deals on house products for their club members. When I arrived to the store I went to the customer service desk to sign up for the club card,the sign up process took less than three minutes to finish soon I was on my way to exploring the store with my new club card. For review purposes I was given a gift card to use in store to get/gain fuel points to use at the gas station, note I did use some of my own money as well since the prices were too good to beat. What did I buy? I purchased the following items which were Buy one get one free: Hefty Trash Bags,Febreeze Candles, & Safeway Brand Laundry soap, I purchased two Snuggle fabric softeners on sale 2 for $6. They had another wonderful deal going where if you purchased $40 worth of baby gear [select baby items] you received $10 off automatically at the register,along with other sales items I spent $112 on a $160 worth of products. I saved $45 & I scored 104 fuel points to save at the gas pump. Note: The taxes on your purchase are not included in your fuel points total, your Subtotal before taxes is how many fuel points you will receive.
How does the Fuel points program work? For every $1 you spend on groceries you receive 1 point,for every $1 spend on gift cards you get 2 points & for every $1 you spend on pharmacy purchases you get 1 point. After you receive your fuel points you can head to any Chevron,Texaco or Safeway fuel stations to use your points, Every 100 points gets you $0.10 off at the pump. You can receive up to a $1 off per gallon which really makes a difference to your wallet, Points can be collected over the month & then be used for a one time use at the fuel station, your points will then start to recollect. I plan to build up my points a bit more before I head to fill up my vehicle but I look forward to the extra savings at the pump! Want some fun recipes?
