There’s a grocery list “Just for U!”

Just for U display Just in case you missed it, Hawaii’s Safeway Stores have a new program running — for the time being it is just for Hawai’i residents.  That little red Safeway Club card has just gotten a little bit better!

I’m serious, your Safeway Club card is going to keep track of the products you buy and keep you in the loop when your favorites go on sale or have special promotional pricing.

You don’t have to clip and carry coupons anymore and it’s all personalized and it’s all done with YOU in mind!  Here’s how Safeway explains it:

personalized deals

  • You can get some of the best prices in town with these exclusive deals.
  • Amazing savings on items you buy at Safeway and items you may be picking up at other stores — but now you won’t have to.
  • Unlike coupons, you can use these deals to save again and again.

Once you register with your Club card or phone number, you can go see these exclusive offers online and make a grocery list of your favorites in the comfort of your own home, print it out, put it in your purse or pocket, and off you go!  It’s “your online way to save more in-store.”

Safeway staff help shoppers sign up for the Just for U program

It’s just for Hawai’i at the present time but I’m thinking that we are the guinea pigs for this project.  I’ll take it! I’m happy to take part in it and I’m also happy to share this with everyone!  It is going to be interesting to see just how big this gets and just how fast it spreads across the country!

Leave a comment on this post and be entered to win a $50 Safeway gift card!  

If you leave a comment below, I’ll put your name in our little random drawing to win a $50 gift card, just like the one they’re sending to me!  For this drawing, you DON’T have to be from Hawai’i.  Free groceries!  You can kick start that gift giving early — sign up online and you’ll get a d0zen eggs, for free.

Managers and staff help people understand the benefits of shopping  Just for U

Some of you may have noticed that your shopping receipts at Safeway have been accompanied by coupons for the things you purchase often.  Has this been in the works for a while?  Perhaps.  Are we glad?  Oh yeah!  I am so excited about this — regular readers know how I love food!

Check out, sign up today, and then go check in with your local Safeway ohana and pick up the FREE dozen eggs you can add to your shopping list right after you sign up.

I can already see the evidence of what I regularly buy.  My Tostitos are among the offers.  Pepsi is there — based on the volumes I used to buy for Mom.  I see bananas.

Fresh asparagus in the produce section of Pali Safeway

This is fun!  I wonder if they’ll add asparagus to my list.  I just cooked up my first batch of fresh asparagus last night.  I can guarantee that I will be buying it often — it was so ‘ono!

“Safeway — Ingredients for Life!”  I just had to say that!  Come on!  Talk to us and share your thoughts, so I can put your name in the drawing!!!

    I just signed up for this the other day and used it yesterday. IT ROCKS…. I went online, created my shopping list, then looked for coupons and deals. It’s awesome. Also, you get a free dozen eggs when you sign up 🙂

    Isn’t it cool, Flo? I like us being the testers of this!

    We enjoy shopping at Safeway when we’re in Hawaii. They make some pretty darn good poke and in the bakery, we like their cream cheese frosted cinnamon buns. Mmmmmmm! 🙂

    The deli always has some yummy stuff, Sheila! I like those cream cheese filled jalapeno poppers! They have the cheddar cheese poppers too but the cream cheese is better, to me. 🙂 Their oatmeal cookies and the M&M cookies are good too! I haven’t tried the cinnamon buns, I don’t think. Hmmm…

    Planning on two weeks in Kauai in December. Already planned on stopping in Lihue for groceries!

    That sounds like a really great program! I was excited when Kihei got a Safeway- even though Foodland is pretty stocked, the new store gave us more options and I could now find my favorite Select Grapefruit Soda on the island! Thanks for letting us know about the program and great website 🙂

    @Nicalaine – You don’t have to be in Hawaii to go shopping at Safeway! 🙂 Everyone I’ve talked to is excited about this new program so I’m guessing that once Hawai’i irons the kinks out, if there are any, this program will spread quickly. 🙂

    @Heather – You should find your pricing better too! I’ve noticed that on O’ahu! Star is gone and I know their pricing is what killed them. Safeway is not always the cheapest for everything but it often is for your over all shopping trip. Let me tell you all about the aloha you get from Safeway’s staff! Oh my goodness! 🙂

    I’m visiting Oahu and the Big Island next month! So glad Safeway is there as we have it here in the Washington, D.C. area and I shop there regularly. I planned to buy groceries for my condo stay on the Big Island to save some money and this will make it all that much easier!

  • 9 Evelyn // Jun 22, 2010 at 11:01 am

    That’s great, Jill! There are Safeway stores on both islands! Enjoy your stay and have fun!

    Thanks for the great giveaway! I’ve never been to Hawaii, but I hope, hope, hope that I am able to get that pleasure someday. Safeway is my main local store here in CA.

  • 11 Evelyn // Jun 26, 2010 at 6:54 am

    Thanks for sharing that, Tracy! That’s what makes this fun — Safeway is all over the place! I think most of our grocery stores here in Hawai’i are local-grown. Safeway may be the only grocery store here that is mainland-based. Anyone can correct me!

    We’ve got many other store chains here, of course, but the emphasis here is on GROCERY! It’s all about the food! 🙂
