Tip: Coupons at Safeway to Collect Air Miles

Safeway is an example of one store where you can collect many Air Miles reward miles using coupons. Every week they feature some type of bonus miles promotion, often in the ‘buy x many’ and ‘get x many miles’ – referred to on forums as BxGx (where x is a number).

This week you can collect quite a few Air Miles (AM) with the help of coupons if you need pain medication.

Here’s an example from this week’s flyer:

Safeway Tylenol and Motrin, Buy 2 Get 25 Air Miles

Example #1

Example #1: Tylenol Ultra or Rapid Release, or Motrin Liquid Gels – save $3 off reg. price, Buy 2 Get 25 AM. The regular price of Tylenol Rapid Release (80 gelcaps, 500 mg each) at my Safeway yesterday was $10.39 – $3 off (on sale) = $7.49 each (Club price). Then I used this printable coupon to save $4, and that brought the price down to $3.49/box. I bought 2 and got 25  Air Miles for spending $6.98 out-of-pocket (OOP).


Safeway Bonus Offer, Buy 3 Get 20 Air Miles

Example #2

Example #2: Tylenol or Motrin, select varieties – save $3 off reg. price, Buy 2 Get 20 AM. Motrin super strength (60 tablets, 400mg each) regular price is $9.99 – $3 sale = $6.99 each. Then I used this printable coupon to save $5, so each Motrin was $1.99, and I purchased 4, and received 40 Air Miles for spending $7.96 OOP.

In summary, I spent under $15 for 6 boxes of pain relievers and received 65 Air Miles! Combined with my other groceries, spending over $100 (before coupons the amount was over $100) this coupon gave me a bonus 100 miles. However, if your purchase amount is going to be below the $100 make sure you give the cashier the bonus air miles coupon before the other coupons, because if she scans it after you won’t get the bonus miles.

So if you shop at Safeway and want to collect lots of Air Miles, using coupons to bring your cost down is a great idea. Here are a few other items that are on sale this week that have coupons and bonus miles:

AirWick Scented Oil, B3G15/B6G40, various insert coupons available

Benadryl, B2G20, coupon here

Cold-FX, B1G15, coupon here

CC Notes: One of my favorite threads on forum to read every week is Operabob’s Safeway Air Miles review. He diligently reads the Safeway flyer and reviews the bonus offers to see how much the Air Miles actually cost the Safeway shopper. You can follow Operabob’s weekly updates here.

Coupon: $4 Robax Products

Robax Product Image

Do you suffer from back pain & muscle spasm?

For fast, effective relief of back pain and muscle spasm, Robax knows back pain.

When back pain causes muscle spasm, it starts a cycle in which the muscle spasm causes more pain. This intensifies the muscle spasm, which causes more pain, and so forth until the cycle is broken. A medicine that combines a muscle relaxant with a pain reliever can be an effective way of interrupting the cycle. If you think a medication might help you cope with your back pain, speak with your doctor or pharmacist about what your options are.
The Robax family of products, available without a prescription, offers a complete line of medications to treat all forms of back pain:
  • Get relief from back pain with Robax.

    Get relief with Robax.

    Robax Platinum: Contains an effective muscle relaxant(methocarbamol) plus the pain relieving power of ibuprofen. Ibuprofen is the most effective pain reliever you can buy without a prescription, and at prescription doses it is also an effective anti-inflammatory drug.

  • Robaxacet: Contains an effective muscle relaxant (methocarbamol) plus the pain relief of acetaminophen.
  • Robaxisal Extra Strength: Contains an effective muscle relaxant (methocarbamol) plus the pain relief of ASA (acetylsalicylic acid).

Now you can save $4 off your next purchase of Robax Platinum, Robaxacet, or Robaxisal product with this printable coupon.

CC Notes: This coupon can be printed once a day per household, and expires one month from the time you print it.

Review: Extreme Couponing {S1E9}

TLC Extreme Couponing Review

Review: Season 1, Episode 9

Here’s my review of Extreme Couponing – Season 1, Episode #9, which aired May 25, 2011:

First up was coupon shopper Amber, a 30 year-old mother of 4 from Sahuarita, Arizona, boasting about her ability to feed her family of 6 for $50/week. Her 600 lbs. of frozen food stockpile is displayed in 6 various freezers, and says she “needs to restock” hand soap because currently she only has 20. Really, 20 hand soap isn’t enough? Maybe because she’s a nurse she believes in excessive hand washing, I’m not sure. Amber blatantly asks “why get 1 when you can get 100?”, which makes me wonder if she’s a better candidate for the show Hoarders.

Amber is a “rookie couponer”, and admits that starting couponing was intimidating at first, but adds that she makes her family collect and clip coupons while she’s away at work in the day. Her family is shown clipping together at the dining room table, as well as going along on the shopping trip.

On her “biggest haul ever”, one of the items Amber buys is Motrin for $2.49. She has a coupon that gives her $6 off the purchase of 2, so that is why she fills her cart with pain medication – she gets the overage (or credit) of $1 applied to the other items she is buying, not because she suffers from frequent headaches.

Lessons from Amber: I like the fact that Amber involves her whole family in the coupon process, and her story is a great example of how family support can make coupon shopping easier. In addition, Amber’s smart use of the $6 coupon for the $5 item shows that buying the Motrin with a coupon resulted in a profit, not just free product. However, not all stores give the full price of the coupon on the purchase of an item that costs less, but currently in Canada you can get the overage applied to your basket at Walmart – so make sure you know the store policy and don’t assume you will get the overage amount.

The second part of tonight TLC’s Extreme Couponing episode featured Amanda, age 24, a return couponer from a previous show. Amanda shops in Cincinnati, Ohio, and on this episode she goes shopping for herself, her husband Billy, and her 85-year old grandmother, in which she achieves a 99% savings on her grocery shopping! However, to accomplish these tremendous savings, she has to check out with 8 different transactions, with 3 simultaneous registers, and keep her 500 coupons organized for each of the 8 individual transactions.

Amanda on Extreme Couponing

Amanda from Ohio

It was interesting that Amanda compared the high of coupon shopping to “being on crack” and says she feels like she’s “just done a bunch of crystal meth”. I think TLC could have deleted that part of the interview, since this is a couponing show, and not A&E’s Intervention.

Anyways, Amanada’s husband Billy accompanies her to do her shopping, but she emasculates him often, first by telling him to “keep walking, keep walking”, and although she admits he is helpful, she says “he must follow her direct orders”. She barks “out of my way” and then yells at him for misplacing the last envelope of coupons at the till. I think Billy should make her do her shopping by herself, and refuse to carry all that stuff upstairs when she gets home. If you missed Amanda’s initial appearance on the show, in which Billy dutifully carried all her purchases into his man cave, you can watch it here.

Anyways, on today’s show, Amanda has ordered some of her items ahead, and for the first time I was encouraged to hear someone on the show say that “wiping the shelves is BAD”! Almost every week I watch Extreme Couponing only to be left frustrated at the shoppers who clear off the shelf and have no consideration of other people who might want to buy that item. It was refreshing to hear someone had planned ahead and say that shelf clearing is not an accepted couponing practice!

Lessons from Amanda: Well, one lesson we don’t want to learn is that couponing is similar to drugs! However, we can learn from Amanda’s organization – her coupons divided into envelopes for each transaction is a good tip for staying organized at the checkout. And as already mentioned, we can learn that shelf clearing is not acceptable, and if you plan on buying a large amount you should call the store and pre-order the quantity you need.
