• Safeway eCoupons | Knowing the difference between a store coupon vs manufacturer coupon


    The Safeway Just4U program is being coming a pretty big deal.  I love it for it’s simplicity, but it also can be tricking when you trying to figer out the difference between a store coupon and a manufacturers coupons.   These details are important to know because if you have one of each – You can use them together!!

    Here is how to tell if a Safeway eCoupon is a Store Coupon or a Manufacturer Coupon:

    If it’s a Manufacturers – the image will display the amount you are saving.  In this example,  Save $0.50 One Febreze Set & Refresh – (one time coupon)

    Store Coupons will give you a price point. Exp: Colgate Total Advanced or Arm & Hammer Toothpaste $2.49 each


    Then there are coupons that say $1.00 off- One Time – These too are store coupons and you receive multiple savings, limited to one transaction – with the exception of P&G Product coupons

    Easy as pie, right? Hopefully that is helpful for you!

    Few extra tips:

    *Note if you load manufacturers coupons onto your store card you may not be able to print some of these coupons from coupons.com – I personally only load the Store Coupons, so I can get two prints instead of just a one time use.

      I also read (and it has worked for me) that Just4U coupons that say “$1.00 OFF” are store coupons that are available to use multiple times but only in 1 transaction while coupons that say “SAVE $1.00″ are the actual manufacturer’s coupons that can only be used for 1 item, save & off are the key words. It took me a while to notice the difference. I hope this helps!

        Thanks so much! I have been searching for some kind of help or information on this subject, the manager at one of the stores confirmed this but couldn’t tell me how to differentiate between a store and a manufacturer’s coupon. Thanks again!!!

        Thank you Leighann! Been trying to figure that out too. That helps SO much!

        Thanks Leighann (and Amber). This is good information to have. It needs to be put somewhere for future reference for those of us who forget. :)

      There is one exception to the $x.xx off coupon. If its a p&g coupon that says $1 off then it will only come off of one item because they’re considered manufacturers coupons. All others that say” $1off ” and not “save $1″ will take off x amount per item that you purchase in a single transaction :)

      Am I correct in assuming that Safeway does not double the manufacturer’s coupons loaded on your card like they do the paper ones?

      • Sam H says:

        Yes, Joanna, you are correct. They do not double electronic coupons. Saves the checker figuring out the “off” vs “save” thing on the fly, too.

    5. Betsy says:

      So then can I only combine paper coupons with a store coupon?

    6. Staci says:

      If it says “off”, you can match it with a “manufacturer’s”. I remember this because they both have an “f”. So theybcan stack. If it says “save”, there is no “f”, so I can’t stack it with a “manufacturer’s coupon that I already have. It’s how I remember …
