Alrighty you guys I have some very good news. I can’t tell you how relieved I am to have closure on this particular issue because I never know how to handle these coupons. There are a lot of people that feel you should not stack manufacturer coupons. What does that mean? That means use the new e-coupons and load them onto your club card- then use a paper coupon on top of that for the exact same item. So in essence you use 2 coupons on one item and they are both manufacturer.
This puts me in a difficult spot because it absolutely CAN be done, but as we all know just because you can do it, doesn’t mean it is right.
To complicate this issue a little more, Safeway has recently started featuring coupons.com coupons which can also be loaded onto your store card. The awesome thing about these coupons is that there is a ton of overlap between these coupons and the printable coupons that I frequently reference.
To date I have been a little uncomfortable with all of this- especially since I have heard from readers that were escorted out of stores when they were caught stacking these coupons. I don’t want to publish or encourage anything that is unethical- regardless of whether it works or not.
So with that being said, I am very, very, very happy to report that I clarified this issue with the person that actually wrote this coupon policy at Safeway directly.
She said that unless you live in the state of Hawaii you can absolutely for sure stack away!!
So this means there are going to be so many more great deals at Safeway and if you haven’t gotten onto the e-coupon bandwagon yet, you are really missing out.
Here are the e-coupon sites available right now:
*Proctor and Gamble
*Safeway loadable coupons (if you shop at an affiliate store, go directly to that site instead- i.e. Vons.com)
You will want to get registered with all of these companies so that you can start loading the coupons right away. If you are unsure how to do this just head over to watch my vlog on e-coupons.
Still not convinced you want to bother with e-coupons? Well here is an example of a deal that is available right now:
