Safeway & DoorDash Grocery Promotion
Now through June 30th, you can get free grocery delivery and save 40%, up to $40 on your first Safeway grocery purchase through DoorDash when you use the promo code GROCERY at checkout.
Simply download the DoorDash app via your smartphone, or sign up for an account online and create your order. Enter the promo code just before your payment is processed to get the 40% discount.
Note – It may be that free delivery is only for first-time DoorDash users (which I am), and if you are a regular user of DoorDash, you may have a $3.99 delivery fee, but you can still save 40% on your Safeway groceries with the GROCERY promo code.
Because the order processing and payment are completed through DoorDash, Safeway club pricing and Just for U discounts will not apply.

DashPass members can enjoy these benefits on all eligible orders of $25 or more from Albertsons Cos.
