Through November 17, 2018, you can get $15 off of two $100 Visa gift cards and $10 off two $50 Visa gift cards by clipping the coupon in your just for U account at Safeway or other Albertsons branded grocery stores. This is a great deal, especially if you have a credit card that gives you rewards at grocery stores. These gift cards can be used like a debit card at other stores which do not give you a category reward on your credit card.
Here’s how the savings break out. Each card has an activation fee. The fee is $5.95 for the $100 card and $4.95 for the $50 card. If you maxed out this deal on your just for U account, you would have $300 to spend, but only have paid $296.80, plus whatever rewards you earn on your credit card.
Be sure to clip the coupon to your just for U account and use your number or card at the register to get the discount. If you’re not sure which stores are owned by Albertsons in your area, take a look below. You can find this clickable image here if you scroll to the bottom of the page.
Funny story. Once when I was buying some of these discounted gift cards, the bagger kind of joked about why I would buy them. I told him that since they were on sale, I was getting them for less than they were worth, and then on top of that, I was getting 6% cash back on my American Express Blue Cash Preferred Card, and I could use them at other places that didn’t have category bonuses or at Walmart to get money orders in place of cash. His young mind was blown, and he told me I was, “Winning.”
Yep, winning—just like Charlie Sheen!
