Update on the FREE Clementines at Safeway

I posted about them originally on Saturday and shared what little information I had. Then there was an update that it was free with a $25 purchase at Safeway. Now, there's even more details and they're making this freebie less and less exciting. Here's all the fine print:

Get a FREE 5 LB. Box of Clementine Tangerines in your store on 12/08/09. Offer is valid for one day only 12/08/09, to the 1st 25,000 customers. $25 minimum purchase required, Club Card required, Card loaded offer, for a value of $4.99 or more.

I do think it's great that they're making an effort to appreciate their customers. I am disappointed that all of the rules and restrictions were not shared when the first bit of information was released. I was thinking I'd buy some things I needed anyways and maybe get to $25 so I could claim some free clementines, but tomorrow only? I do think this was badly announced and I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed or confused. If you're still interested, be sure to visit Safeway's facebook page and click the "Events" tab. There will be a link to where you need to go to load this coupon to your card. good luck!


  1. I really should have been leary about this for all the reasons I dislike Safeway. Thanks for posting this and following up with the details. I appreciate it! It just seems like so many of their deals come with restrictions.

  2. Ugh... this is the reason I hardly ever go to Safeway... the good deals always come with a minimum purchase. I don't have time to plan out a thrifty trip if the coupon is only good for tomorrow! Thanks for the information Maygan!!!

  3. I agree Safeway is notorious for offers like this. It is a great deal if you happen to be shopping today, but as you said it's definitely not as exciting as they first made it seem.
