Saving Money With Safeway Gas Reward Points
Safeway Gas Reward Points are designed to help you SAVE on two of the most frequent and necessary expenses – groceries and gas! I don’t know about you, but here in Colorado we do a LOT of driving and with a family of five, we go through a LOT of groceries! So being able to save money and get quality food and gas is extremely important.
How Do I Earn Gas Rewards Points?
Reward Points are easy to earn by purchasing qualifying groceries, gift cards and pharmacy items with a Safeway Club Card, and are easy to redeem at participating Safeway fuel centers. For every 100 points earned by shopping at Safeway with a Safeway Club Card, shoppers get a 10 cent per gallon reward. Shoppers can use up to $1 dollar per gallon in rewards on a single fill-up at a participating Safeway fuel center location, with a maximum of 25 gallons and a limit of one vehicle per transaction. Reward Points can be earned by shopping at Safeway stores in the following manner:
- For every $1 spent on qualifying grocery purchases, customers receive one point.
- By purchasing qualifying gift cards, shoppers receive two points per $1 spent.
- For qualifying purchases made at the pharmacy, customers receive one point for every $1 of out-of-pocket cost, including co-pays.
Customers redeem their Rewards by simply swiping their Safeway Club Card, or by entering their phone number at the pump before fueling up.
Points are earned based on whole dollars spent on eligible purchases (for example, spend $5.25 and earn 5 points). Additionally, points are redeemed in increments of 100: 100 points = 10¢ per gallon Gas Reward, 200 points = 20¢ per gallon Gas Reward, 500 points = 50¢ per gallon Gas Reward, 1000 points = $1 per gallon Gas Reward. Point totals less than 100 expire at the end of the calendar month in which they were earned. Gas Rewards earned during each month can be used through the end of the following calendar month (for example, Gas Rewards earned in January expire at the end of February).
How do I know how many gas rewards points I have?
The Safeway Just for U app makes it easy to see how many gas rewards you have, how many are expiring and how many points are needed until your next reward. The app also shows you a real-time map of Safeway fuel centers close to your location.
Does Safeway Offer Bonus Gas Rewards Points?
Safeway offers bonus fuel points like 2x gas rewards points and 4x gas rewards points as special promotions throughout the year when you purchase participating products or gift cards. You’ll find out all about the special bonus points here on Super-Safeway.
How much Can You Really Save with Gas Rewards Points?
Here’s where the rubber meets the road. I like to save my gas rewards points until I save $1.00 per gallon on gas, so for me, that’s like 16 – 18 gas rewards available when I fill up. The last time I filled up at Safeway, I put 18.6 gallons of gas and paid just $1.23 per gallon, or $22.86 to fill up a Chevy Tahoe. I saved $18.60 ($1.00 per gallon) in the process. These are real savings that you can apply toward other expenses, or use to treat yourself to a special coffee drink or two!
