=======================
xx/xx/15 - xx/xx/15 Promotion

Participating items must be purchased in a single transaction. Limit one(1) offer per transaction

These coupons often do not scan properly(coming up -0.01 along with a 0.01) and require override. Override is always required at SCO.

If the coupon off your next order does not print out, you can request it online here.

When redeeming the coupon, the following items are excluded in the calculation of the minimum spend requirement:
-Fluid dairy such as Milk, Half & Half, etc
-Blunts, alcohol, and smokes
-Gift cards, Lottery tickets, MoneyGram, etc

Anyone see this or know if it's available at Tom Thumb in Texas?

Update: Never mind, just saw it on the Sun-Tuesday flyer. So based on posts, this can be replicated/scaled up?
The $10 rebate, is there an expiration date on it? Can you combine the $10 rebates when using?

The $10 coupon say that you cannot combine them. One per transaction. Expiration date is two weeks following your gift card purchase

I have personally got these gift cards using Amex/Citi/Chase/Barclays card so far and always got the points.

I have heard from other FT'ers that Citi treats some of the prepaid/gift card purchases as cash advance but I haven't had that experience yet. So in essence, I think this will most likely count to your min spend and you will get the points.
I would love a PM from anyone who HAS experienced this.

My Safeway allows the purchase of multiples in separate transactions, both $100 fixed and variables. I stick with the $100 gift cards to get more $10 off coupons and have used the coupons in the purchase of a few groceries plus an additional $100 gc. The coupon did not print out automatically on the variable gc but the cashier wrote me a $10 coupon without me even asking.

I'm meeting minimum spend on multiple cards right now and every little bit helps.

I'm essentially getting paid $4 to purchase these cards so even paying $2 to upload is worth it.

It's my mini manufactured spend.

It is highly unlikely that a gift card purchase at a grocery store will count as a cash advance, since it depends on the merchant.

For example, with Citi cards, it counts as a cash advance if you buy directly from Amex Gift Cards online.

Kroger has a similar promo right now. $5 coupon for 2 Visa/MC gift card purchases. I have a stack of these coupons that I need to use. Kind of a PIA that you can't stack them but hard to complain about free groceries.

TYP is fine. bought 3 GCs in seperate transactions at self checkout(just stood there and kept on ringing them in).

10off coupon expires end of month and can be used immediately. I'll be going back for a lot more over the remaining days. Hoping to get 2K worth of 100s. Self Checkout rep didnt mind at all. though there was a bit of a line as it was peak hour at 6pm. Will go at lunch instead today.

If the coupon machine is running out of paper or got disconnected for any reason, coupon will not print. Before ringing up your purchase, glance at the coupon machine, make sure you see the green lights being on.
And by the way, only MC gift cards count, if you buy $500 visa GC, that will not work

The official ad says it's only for master card of $100. I bought a $500 and it didn't print out either. Depending on the cashier, they might give you a $10 store gift card.

I have bought 6 x $500 in separate purchases over the past week and the coupon has printed every time (Vons, SoCal). Tonight I bought 1 plus $11 worth of soda and used the $10 coupon, which came up on the screen as "Catalina - MC promo" and it still generated another $10 coupon. The cashier smiled and stifled a little laugh when the coupon printed - she's not bothering to check my id anymore. That's a sign that she's seen me a few times this week!

Ok, Check the gift card, it is VISA.
I havent seen $500 worth gift card for Mastercard at Safeway. There are no vons in the area.
