Yesterday, we traveled to San Francisco for a blogger event about Safeway's just for U program. We love the just for U program because it really tailors to people like us: 20 somethings without kids who just want to save some money who might not want to bother with clipping coupons and scouring store ads to find deals. The just for U program makes it SUPER easy to save some serious money on your grocery bill. You can easily save 10-20% more on your grocery bill without ever having to touch a paper coupon!
The just for U program is divided into 3 major parts.
The coupon center is where you will find manufacturer's coupon offers available for you to digitally "clip" or add to your Safeway club card. What's great about this is that you don't have to bother with clipping, organizing and then forgetting to bring paper coupons. Load the offers you want onto your card and bam! The savings will come right off once that item and your club card are scanned. The coupons in the coupon center will have expiration dates just like paper coupons. Also, new coupons are added as frequently as daily. Once a coupon is loaded to your card, the item will show up on your savings list.
The personalized deals are deals specifically tailored for you. These offers are based on your club card's purchase history. In our experience, the offers are spot on with what we would normally buy. They will occasionally toss in a FREE offer where you will literally get a certain item for free once you load that offer to your card. Also, since personalized deals are "price point" offers as opposed to "cents off" offers, you can stack a manufacturer's coupon with them! Once a personalized deal is added to your card, it will show up on your savings list.
Perhaps the easiest feature of the just for U program is the your club specials section. Here, there is no loading or adding necessary. Based on your purchase history, you are shown items that are on club special. The paper ad only shows a fraction of the total club specials for a given week, so this section can be very helpful in planning a trip. A quick glance at this section and you can save bundles by just knowing what is on sale. You have the option here to add the items to your savings list so you don't forget them!
The savings list is the comprehensive list of all of the items you have added to your personalized deals, all of the coupons you have added to your card and the club specials that you have added. You also have the option to manually add any other item to the list. You can print the list in a print-friendly format or email the list. The list is also available for viewing on the mobile app.
This is a perfect segue into the mobile app! If you do nothing else, download the Safeway mobile app (for iPhone or Android). With the mobile app, you can visit the coupon center and see your personalized deals. While in the store, you can literally add coupons and personalized deals to your card as you shop! The coupons are sorted by category, making them easy to find in seconds. They do ask that you give them 5 minutes or so to load. My favorite part of the mobile app is the ability to view your savings list while shopping. No more paper lists! Even cooler, you can check off the items as you shop! You can even view your store's weekly ad through the mobile app! Again, if downloading the mobile app is the only thing you do, you will still see savings just by using it whenever you shop at Safeway.
As you can see, just for U makes saving on grocery shopping very easy. The average casual just for U user will save 10-20% more on their grocery bill! So don't wait any longer, join just for U today and start saving! Also, don't forget to check out our Safeway weekly deals matchups each week!
