Safeway's JustForU Program [Giveaway]

If you are a follower of my baking blog, you may know that HJ and I are currently saving for a house.  We're actively trying to cut our expenses because every little bit helps.  I will be the first to admit that it's been pretty difficult saving money....  These are some of the things that happened:


(1) All of the hospital bills from BJ's birth came all at once
(2) I wasn't getting paid for a while because I ran out of sick leave 
(3) HJ's cell phone broke so we had to buy a new one
(4) I have to go and do a presentation on the "mainland", i.e. Continental U.S., so naturally, we are making a vacation out of it (haha, bad excuse, I know.)
(5) HJ's Birthday, our wedding anniversary, and Father's Day all came in June

Since we've been low on cash lately, I have been getting pretty good at finding sales at the local supermarket.  Still, I know I could improve my spending habits even more by clipping coupons... but I'm too lazy to do so.  To make things worse, when I actually clip the coupons, I forget them at home!  

This is why I was so glad when a representative from Safeway e-mailed me regarding a new program that they started in Hawaii.  It's an online coupon program called "Just For U", which connects discounts directly to your Safeway Club Card.

This is how Just For U works:  You register at http://www.safeway.com.  Then, you look through their deals, click on the ones that you want, and that's it!  The offered prices get loaded on to your club account and you don't have to print anything out from home.  Of course, if you want to, you can print out the list of discounts you uploaded,  but the beauty is that you don't have to.  When you go to the store, the discounts have already been automatically applied.  Better yet, the Just For U program selects deals "Just For You" based on how you shop.  Get it?  


Here's the best part:  Just for signing up, you get a free dozen eggs!  Who doesn't love free stuff? :-)  I was so happy when I was at the check out line and this actually worked!  (I think the free eggs offer is only for residents of Hawaii, but I could be wrong.)  I'm so excited to save even more when I go shopping the next time.

  8. thanks trace ... following you now that i finally got my school blog up. as usual i started it but had a hard time getting myself to write. not to mention lj has been a total gremlin this week. this is a super cool promotion, and i would love to do it ... only thing is that i don't have my own safeway card. i only punch in my phone number ... and i think our house's number goes straight to lauren's account. i should get my own card, but i'm too lazy. love your blog, btw.

  48. I learned it's that the link provided is for Hawaii residents only, but Safeway already uploads coupons onto our Safeway card because we signed up for that a while back in our state.
