Supermarket chain Safeway did this promotion last year. It’s doing it again. If you buy $150 worth of “participating” gift cards on or before December 3, you get a $25-off coupon on a purchase of $50 or more.
Amazon is one of the participating gift cards. So buy $150 in Amazon gift cards first, get the coupon, and then fill your grocery cart. That way you use up the coupon in the same trip.
Safeway is also giving 4X fuel rewards on gift card purchases. $150 gift cards will get 600 reward points worth $0.60 off per gallon at Safeway gas stations. If you fill up 15 gallons, it’s worth another $9. In total you get $34 off your $150 Amazon gift card, on top of any credit card reward you get.
This deal is probably also offered at other grocery store chains owned by the same parent company: Vons, Pavilions, Randall’s, Tom Thumb, Dominick’s, and Carrs.
