The new program is called Fast Forward and it introduces a new way to pay for your groceries. The Fast Forward debit card allows you to pay with your new Safeway Club Card, which is connected to your checking account. Now, you can pay with just your phone number and a pin! Making that late night run to the store and forgot your card? No problem! If you have your Safeway Club card phone number and your Fast Forward PIN number, you can enter that and pay using the number! Amazing!
Ok, how can we give you more good news...
Using the Fast Forward card will get you 2x gas rewards points and you can earn up to $1.00 off per gallon! That's a LOT of money off per gallon! Even better, when you get your card in the mail, you'll get one coupon that will get you 3x gas rewards on your first purchase using your Fast Forward card!
Sounds like a great thing, right? Well, we wanted to check it out, so we signed up for an account and waited for our card and 3x coupon in the mail. It came the other day and we were off to shop!
So we gave this thing a whirl.
We shopped till we dropped (to maximize our 3x rewards!) and stocked up on stuff that we know we'll need like paper products, canned stuff and whatnot. It was really nice getting 3x gas rewards! We usually get the standard amount and this provided a nice boost to our balance. What is going to be cool is getting 2x rewards every time we shop now that we have the Fast Forward card!
This program is only available in Sacramento at this time. To register, go here.
Not from Sacramento? I'd love it if you shared this with anyone you know who is, but we've got something for everyone.
