This is the thread for 2018. The old thread is here.

=======================
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
-Taxes

Um the context was regarding only WM. Sure I could have made it crystal clear in my first sentence that I was only referring to WM but I did at least reference WM in my previous post. I can't disagree if it is much easier to liquidate at a grocery store since I haven't personally tried it but I believe you that it is true.

Offer still showing in app

I redeemed the “one time” offer five or six days ago to get $10 off a variable card. Normally the offer disappears from the app shortly after redeeming it. However the offer is still showing in the app. Are there any data points that would indicate if the offer would work a second time? I don’t want to have them open/ring up a card if there isnt a high chance of success.

My experience is the offer will not work.

Trust your gut. Nothing has changed here. Fake DPs from unreliable members will always pop up from time to time.

Here is an extract from my credit card postings, showing two successive transactions, on Oct. 14 &15, at two nearby Safeway stores, for $500 Visa Gift Cards, plus $5.95 Activation fees, minus the J4U digital coupon, which I successfully used twice to reduce the price to $495.95, as shown below.

If you need an actual photo of the card statement, I can provide that as well.

And when you are ready to actually make constructive contributions to this thread, please let us know. We will be all ears.

Is this style MCGC's PIN last four (without doing anything)? FWIW I'm mostly buying the fixed 100s but I believe the T&C insert inside the packaging is the same, and I've read it. Thanks!

PIN of Metabank MCGC like Safeway sells is Last 4

Anyone know if you can get $10 off on the “everywhere” Visa cards? Their purchase fee is $1 lower

But $1 more and you get 300 more points on your card - am I missing something?

Fuel everywhere is $2 less and may be useful to those running out of CLs after hitting these deals for 4 weeks straight. Its always worked in the past so I assume this time is no different.

Has anyone ever actually had an Amex SUB clawed back from buying GCs from Safeway? I know not to buy them from GCM or Simon or staples, but Safeway?
