This policy applies to Safeway Inc. and its affiliates and subsidiaries in the USA
Manufacturer and Store Coupons:
1. We will redeem coupons only for the
specific items included in our customer's purchase transaction. The
redemption value will be as stated on the coupon, unless that value
yields a final price for such item less than zero; if application of
the redemption value yields a price less than zero, the coupon will be
redeemed only for the amount that yields a zero price (our customer
cannot net a cash credit or payout from a coupon purchase).
2. Paper coupons must be presented at the
time of the purchase transaction. We will accept only coupons issued
by Safeway or the manufacturer of the relevant product. We will not
accept photocopies of coupons.
3. Coupons are subject to advertised offer
limitations and all other limitations and restrictions on the
applicable coupon or product.
4. Coupons may not be applied against any free item received in any offer.
5. Coupons have no cash value.
6. Safeway will not accept manufacturer
coupons (including, but not limited to, coupons issued through a
Catalina or other in-store coupon dispenser) that display another
retailer's logo or name unless such coupon is for a specific item with
the same product identifiers as the product included in our customer's
purchase transaction and is sold and available at the store.
7. We will not accept coupons unless they
have an expiration date. Expired coupons will not be accepted.
8. We will not accept coupons that, in the
determination of Safeway personnel, appear distorted or blurry or are
altered in any way.
9. Sales taxes will be applied in
accordance with the law of the applicable state, regardless of any
coupon or other discount that may apply to the purchase transaction.
10. All applicable bottle and packaging
deposits on the purchased and free items must be paid by the customer.
11. Safeway reserves the right to refuse
any coupons at its discretion.
12. Purchase reward thresholds (if any)
will be calculated based upon customer's final price (after deducting
Club Card savings and all other discounts and savings) before
deductions for any manufacturer coupons. As an example (and not as an
offer), if a $10 minimum purchase is required for a customer reward, a
customer's order at full retail would be $12, a Club Card discount of
$1.75 applies, and a manufacturer's coupon of $1 applies, the customer
would be given credit for a $10.25 purchase, and would be eligible for
the reward (assuming compliance with all other requirements) even
though the customer's cash payment would be only $9.25. The
manufacturer's coupon would not be deducted from the total for
purposes of determining reward eligibility. Purchase reward thresholds
(if any) will be calculated based upon customer's final price (after
deducting Club Card savings, and all other discounts)
13. References to a threshold purchase
requirement will exclude purchases of: Beer, Wine, Spirits, Tobacco
Products, Fuel, All Fluid Items in the Refrigerated Dairy Section
(including Fluid Dairy and Dairy Substitutes), Prescription Items and
Co-payments, Bus/Commuter Passes, Fishing/Hunting Licenses and Tags,
Postage Stamps, Money Orders, Money Transfers, Ski Tickets, Amusement
Park Tickets, Event Tickets, Lottery Tickets, Phone Cards, Gift Cards,
and Gift Certificates; also excluded are: Bottle Deposits, Redemption

18. We will not accept "free product" internet printed manufacturer coupons.
Load to Card Club Coupons:
19. Internet and digital coupons that have
been electronically loaded to a Safeway Club Card are automatically
redeemed at the time of purchase after the club card number has been
entered. All other coupon policies above apply to electronic coupons
that are loaded to a club card. Internet and digital coupons
electronically loaded to a Safeway Club Card are not included in any
operative "double coupon" or other increase in coupon value promotion.

store. Limitations and restrictions for double coupon promotions may
change at any time. Changes will be posted in store only. "Double
