Safeway Gift Cards – Bonus Gift Card deals at Safeway and Sobeys this week!

I LOVE a good gift card deal! Why? Because if you get a free gift card to one of your favourite grocery stores, just for buying stuff you already were going to buy – well, that’s free food people!

This week both Safeway and Sobeys have some interesting gift card offers that I think you need to know about. Here’s what they are, so that you can plan ahead on your shopping and get the most overall bang for your buck. Remember to bring along coupons for that Huggie’s diaper gift card promotion.

Safeway Gift Cards – $10 Safeway or Sobeys gift card this week with $40 Huggies purchase

  • Spend $40 or more on Huggies diapers, Pull Ups or Goodnites overnight diapers in a single transaction and receive a $10 Sobeys or Safeway gift card! (Limit of 1 gift card per customer.)
  • You can still use coupons on the diapers, too, so make this an excellent money saver by using coupons on the packs of diapers or wipes. Then, you’ll have $10 of free money to spend at the grocery store next time you shop!
  • Offer valid August 13-19, 2020.

Safeway gift cards – Buy $200 in HBC or Roots gift cards, get a $25 Sobeys or Safeway gift card FREE

  • Offer available at either Sobeys or Safeway this week. Now, I know that buying $200 worth of gift cards is a lot to shell out. BUT…if you have kids going back to school, then this might be the perfect way to get them dressed up and ready! You can also use the gift card to buy at Hudson’s Bay online, or https://roots.ca. So, no need to go to a mall to use these gift cards!
  • If you don’t NEED the gift cards, you can always exchange them for other gift cards OR give away the gift cards as gifts. (Does that seem super obvious to anyone besides me? Ha!)
  • And then once you’ve purchased the Roots or RBC cards, you’ll get your FREE $25 Safeway or Sobeys gift card! This is an excellent deal!
  • Offer valid August 13-19, 2020.

I hope you can take advantage of these deals to earn some free Safeway and Sobeys gift cards. Nothing tastes better than free groceries.

Save On Foods Flyer this Week – Best Deals at Save On Foods

I don’t know about the rest of you bargaineers, but the way we have grocery shopped has changed in a very big way. Now, rather than visiting a few different stores a week, we really tend to shop at only one store – and right now, that store is Save On Foods here in Calgary, Alberta.

Why Shop at Save On Foods during the Covid-19 pandemic?

We’ve tried a few other supermarkets during the pandemic, and we keep coming back to our local Save On. Why? We find it’s the slowest – as in, the fewest people in the store when we go to shop. (It does help that we go first thing in the morning – at 8 AM. Save On Foods does have shopping hours for seniors starting at 7, but we’re not that age yet, so we are sure to be ready to shop when it’s our opening time of 8:00.) And, the less busy the store is – the safer we feel!

The Save On we go to is relatively small, so the husband and I split the store between us and each have a shopping list accoring to what areas we’ll each visit. Then, our shopping trips are super quick and efficient and we get everything we need for the week in only about 15 minutes or so!

Maybe a lot of you are using delivery grocery services right now, or pick up grocery services like PC Express at Superstore. How have your experiences been using these? We weren’t too pleased with our PC Express experience, which was really too bad as we’d love to order online and just pick up. But, for now – Save On is working well for us!

Please note that these deals last until May 13. On May 14, there will be a lovely new Save on flyer! (And this flyer is for Western Canada. And, due to the ongoing pandemic, Save-on Foods is limiting quantities on certain products, especially high-demand products. Just a heads-up for you guys.)
