Safeway Visa Gift Card Deal – Free Money!

Happy Sunday! I hope your long Christmas weekend is going well! A new Visa gift card deal just dropped from Von’s/Albertson’s/Safeway and I know it is popular among many of you. Let’s take a look.

The Offers

Loading the Offer

This offer is good at stores that use the JustForU loyalty program. This includes Safeway, Vons, Albertson’s and other affiliated stores. Keep in mind this coupon is limit 1 per household and must be loaded to your Just4U account before purchase. To load the offer simply login to your account and look under the “Special Offers” section of your Coupons or click the link above. Keep in mind that the number of coupons is limited, so it’s best to load now even if you won’t use the coupon for a few days.

How It’s Profitable


These Visa gift cards come with a purchase fee, but the discount more than wipes that out making this deal profitable. Use a credit card that earns bonus points at grocery stores to earn more. Note that you do not earn fuel points on the purchase of these cards.

  • 1 X $100 Visa gift card = $105.95 – $10 coupon = $95.95 ($4.05 profit)

In each case you are making a small profit plus your rewards when utilizing these coupons! You can also buy higher denomination gift cards in order to generate more spend.

Warning: These cards are issued by Metabank. Lately people have been having issues liquidating these cards at Walmart.

Bottom Line

While this coupon is limited to only once per account, you come out ahead after discount. Use your favorite card that earns bonus points at a grocery store and you should do pretty well.

  1. The digital coupon says:
    Save $15 instantly When you buy TWO $100 Visa gift cards.
    It didn’t say
    Save $15 instantly when you buy $100 or more in Visa gift cards
    So the Variable Visa Gift Card WILL NOT trigger the discount.
    That being said, we hope there could be a glitche and the variable VGC would work.

    • I did remove the variable language but I do know variables have worked during similar promos. I’ll report back if I receive actual data points either way, but for now I removed the reference to variable.

  2. Find the negative comments bizarre. Multiple cards at the moment have a bonus for grocery store spend. Free miles/points

  3. I just bought one variable with $500 and the discount was applied without issue problem. Paid with Chase Reserve that has 5% cashback for May/June so pure profit is ~$29 minus $0.88 for a walmart money order so not to shabby for the effort. Even better if I can use UR points on travel in which case the profit jumps to ~$40.

  4. That’s a lot of work to make less than $10. Plus, the Visa cards that you buy don’t give you any additional earnings rewards when you use them, so that’s an opportunity cost of at least $4.

    • I only do these when it makes sense. I actually use it for organic spending at Costco and a few other places that are easy to drain. I also don’t go out of my way to buy these unless I’m already going there. Using a grocery category card (Dividend and IT cards Q1) nets 5%. Factoring in the opportunity cost of 2% cashback card you’re looking at a net of 4.5% cashback using these Visa gift cards. In many instances I’ve bought them at Safeway and used them in the same trip at Costco. Every easy dollar matters when you’re looking to save money.

    • def worth the time & effort when min spend for the bonus is needed; even if not, still worth it to max out the cat. spend to help offset the cards AF w/o addl cost on GCs

    • Tino for this hobby you mist think outside of the box. I think your missing the big picture goal which is earning points to earn free travel. Making $3 profit on a $500 gift card spend to earn 12x Hilton points is amazing, hardly gets any better. This blog is not about get rich quick deals. In 3 months I’m even purchasing $15,000 in worth of VC at Safeway each paying a $7 fee each (about $210 in fees) so I can earn my free Hilton weekend night and extra 180,000 (x12) points. Other words im spending $200 to earn between 3-7 free Hilton hotel nights. That’s where your profits are earn dont look at its lots of work for jist $3, anytime you don’t need to pay fees and able to break even or make a small profit is amazing!!! Best of luck once you understand the game of free travel.

      • Just an easy true profit snap shot of how going out of your way to spend $210 for $15,000 worth of GC can earn as value. I pulled up Boca Raton, FL hotels for Aug. $15,000 spend earns free night with Surplus card. Use it at Boca Waldolf $400+ a night, ok now we also earned 180,000 points with the spend for easy math transfer to Embassy Suites 25,000 points a night or $100, cash use 175,000 points on 7 night + every 4th night gets you a free night so that 8 free nights (smart people would spend little more points to get + 2 free nights) anyway 8 night = $800 + $400 = $12,000 cash value (& with effort you can do much better). Do you still think its not worth the effort to make a $3 profit?

      • 180k Hilton points for $210 is a deal no doubt, but I would add in time and cost spent purchasing and liquidating as well.

  5. I’ve never heard of the variable cards triggering this discount in the past. Were you buying two $500s to get $15?
