Tom Thumb/Safeway Discusses Their Coupon Policy
We are always looking for new ways to help you make the most of your budget. And store coupons are a part of that effort. Store coupons are marked with the word “coupon” right after the store name. To make it easier to save with store coupons, take a look at these common questions and answers.
What is a Super Coupon?Super Coupons bring you even more value than regular store coupons. You can identify them by the term “Super Coupon” printed on the coupon itself, or directly above a series of coupons.
What does “Limit one item per coupon” mean?
This phrase means that the coupon price is valid for one product, within one shopping trip, and cannot be duplicated on that trip. For example, if a coupon offers an 18 oz. box of Cheerios for $1.99, and states “limit one item per coupon,” you can purchase just one box of Cheerios at that price on that shopping trip. At the register, just give the coupon to the checker, along with your Club Card, to receive the coupon price. If you have another copy of that same coupon, you can use it on your next shopping trip.
If you have several different coupons for several different items, you can use those coupons on the same shopping trip. However, you cannot use more than one coupon for the same item within one shopping trip.
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 before your Club Card discount is applied. This total will include the coupon item’s regular price, not the discounted price. For example, the regular retail price of a box of Cheerios (before coupon and before 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.
What does “selected varieties” mean?
Occasionally, store coupons can be used for additional flavors or varieties of products that are not specified on the coupon. For example, if a 2-liter bottle of Coke is shown on a coupon with a “selected varieties” message, Diet Coke will also be eligible for the coupon discount. If you have any questions regarding what “varieties” are eligible for the coupon price, please see a store customer service representative.
