Actual practice, can range from "cash only for gift cards" to various limits that are made up such as $200, to letting you do whatever you want with no question. Also I've never been asked for ID for a gift card transaction in any Safeway/Vons Store despite supposed "policies." Also that manager override scan card is frequently left with a cashier because the manager doesn't want to be bothered with coming up to do overrides.

Actual practice can range. But the policy is clear:
Is there a limit on the denomination or number of a gift cards I can buy?
Yes if you are paying with a credit or debit card. If paying with a credit card, customers are limited to (4) gifts cards or $200 per day. If paying with a debit card, customers are limited to (20) gift cards or $2000 per day unless authorized by a Store Director.

Also known as YMMV ... Usually depends on the cashier and your relationship with them

Actually, that policy went away once Safeway/Vons activated the Chip Card Readers in its stores... but some stores still have the signs up and follow that policy because they feel like doing so. None in my area anymore... but there were still a couple as recently as a few months ago.

Either the website hasn't been updated or there is still some store out there that isn't on EMV yet and still swipe only (hence the policy is still existing) because the removal of those signs was ordered by corporate shortly after they got the EMV going last year.
