I just wanted to give you all a heads up on a change in Safeway's coupon policy. This is in regards to "minimum purchase requirements" on their store coupons. The old wording in the policy stated that the minimum was based on your total before club card discount and all coupons, but the new wording says this:
What does "minimum $10 (or $20) purchase required" mean? To use store coupons that include a minimum purchase requirement, you must spend a minimum dollar amount on that shopping trip. You will reach the minimum purchase amount based upon total purchases after your Club Card discount is applied. For example, the regular retail price of a box of Cheerios (after Club Card discounts) will count toward the minimum purchase required in order to use the Cheerios coupon.
If you are using several store coupons in a shopping trip, you will only need to meet one minimum purchase requirement. For example, if you are using three coupons, and they each specify a minimum purchase requirement of $20, your minimum purchase requirement for the total shopping trip is $20, and not $60.
The difference is that now your minimum purchase requirement is based on your total after club card discount. Of course, that total is still reached before coupons are applied- and that's a plus. It also means your total will be easier to calculate (since it's based on the sale price). You may want to print a new copy of this sheet to have on hand.
