Safeway/Vons/just for U Visa Gift Card Deal
Safeway, Vons and other stores with the “just for U” program have a good deal on Visa & Mastercard gift cards this week.
Save $10 instantly when you purchase a $150 Visa or Mastercard gift card.
- Offer expires 9/2/2017
- Limit 1
- Club Card required
Loading the Offer
This offer comes in the form of a digital coupon that needs to be loaded to your account. Once you load the offer, the $10 discount should come off automatically when you purchase a single $150+ Visa or Mastercard gift card. According to data points on Doctor of Credit, variable load cards seem to be working.
The best option for maximizing is to use a card that earns a category bonus at grocery stores. $500 variable load cards have a $5.95 fee, so you will earn a $4.05 profit per card plus credit card rewards. Depending on your liquidation bandwidth this could be a good deal if you have access to multiple accounts.
Both the Visa & Mastercard gift cards are PIN-enabled. For more info on liquidating, see: How To Liquidate Prepaid Visa & Mastercard Gift Cards
The coupon is limited to one-time use only per account. Either way it is a great deal and a great way to get negative cost spend. It may be worth a visit if you have a Safeway or other “just for U” store nearby.
