Have you signed up for Safeway’s new Just for U program yet? If not, then hurry over and register because they are giving FREE eggs at sign up! I had the privilege to check out the Just for U program personally here in Phoenix as it launched, and I can tell you that I am excited about it. I think it will be another wonderful way to help people save on items that you truly need and buy. Plus, it is easy, and especially helpful for those of us with busy lifestyles (don’t we all?).

What is the Just for U Program?

Once you register, you’ll see 3 main areas – Coupon Center, Personalized Deals and Your Club Specials. Here’s what you can find in each area:

Coupon Center

  • These are digital coupons (eCoupons) that you load (by clicking) to your club card.
  • Contains both store and manufacturer coupons – and here is how you can tell the difference
    • Price point coupons are store (ex “$2.49 each”)
    • Dollar off coupons are manufacturer coupons ( ex “save $1.00”)
  • Remember, you can always STACK store coupons with Manufacturer coupons to maximize your savings!
  • eCoupons do NOT double, BUT –
  • The “Best Deal Wins”– The best coupon value is used at the register. If your paper manufacturer coupon is worth more, then the digital manufacturer coupon will not be used.**This is important for those of us with stores that double manufacturer coupons. For example, if you have a digital coupon worth $.50 and a paper coupon worth $.50 for the exact same product, the paper coupon would be used because it will double to $1.00 off, which gives you the Best Deal.

Personalized Deals

  • These are deals designed specifically for you based on your purchase history.
  • You still need to load these on your card by clicking (not automatic)
  • Typically valid for 1 to 4 weeks depending on deal. The expiration date will be shown on the offer.
  • Updated weekly.
  • Most are unlimited, so you can buy multiples
  • These are also valid for you if you use home delivery.

Your Club Specials

  • Items that are currently on sale that are in your purchase history
  • Filtered for you so you don’t have to hunt around the store for items you normally purchase
  • The sales are for everyone

How Do I Register for Just for U?

It is simple to register – just head over to the Safeway Just for U page to register. One tip is that you want to make sure that you (and your household) are using your own card. These deals are personalized for you, so if you are letting another family member or friend use the card, you’ll start seeing deals and coupons that may not be safeway mobilerelevant to you.

Also, if you have an iPhone or Android, you’ll want to download the Safeway app because this will make shopping easy for you – or someone you send to the store for you (ie hubby or kids). ;)

From the app, you can

  • see the weekly ad,
  • find coupons and personalized deals to add to your card,
  • look at your card to see what offers are there
  • add items to your shopping list
  • AND view your shopping list to make sure you have everything you want.

I’m excited about this new program – after quickly adding items to my card and using the app in store, I was able to save 47% on my shopping trip – and that is without any paper coupons! And I bought real items we need, like diapers, organic baby food, bread, and more. photo

So tell me, have you tried out Just for U yet? What did you think? Are you looking forward to checking it out? Leave me a comment and let me know…

I will also be having a Safeway gift card giveaway coming up soon – so stay tuned!
