I got my first taste of fresh cow's milk at age 6, on my first visit to the US. It was Lucerne milk -- creamy, delicious, and oh-so-different from the tinny evaporated milk we drank in the Philippines -- and I've been a Safeway fan ever since. When I first came to live in the US, as a grad student, I would bike to Safeway and squeeze my groceries into my little bike basket (the Safeway near Stanford is always full of students around midnight!). Now that I'm a parent, Safeway is like a second home to me. I'm always there, buying cartfuls of groceries or dropping by for one or two items we ran out of. Last year, when gas prices soared and the prices of basic items like milk and bread were dragged up with it, Safeway was the only place we could afford to shop. Safeway continues to appeal to this budget-conscious mom with their low prices and quality products.
And now, with their new Everyday Low Prices program, Safeway customers in Northern California and Western Nevada will enjoy price reductions on thousands of items. Just look for the new yellow tags around the store! I was at Safeway doing the weekly grocery shop and decided to take a photo of some of the new yellow-tagged items. Here's one of our breakfast staples, Life cereal, now with a new everyday low price:
We're also big on yogurt, so I'm glad to see that yogurt is one of the product categories that they dropped prices on. Other new everyday low price categories include ice cream, frozen snacks, cat food, pizza, refrigerated cheese, salad dressing, pasta, and frozen novelties.
If your favorite product isn't one of those included in the price cuts, or you don't live in Northern California or Western Nevada, you can still save big by using your Safeway Club Card. You don't even have to have your card with you -- I just type in my phone number into the card swipey-thingy. I like to apply the Safeway Club Card discount right at the very end, because I always get a kick out of seeing the total price drop, drop, and drop some more. Most times I shop at Safeway I save at least 20% as a Safeway Club Card member.
Near the checkout stand I saw this neat display that shows how much you can save using Safeway brands. $95 versus $63 -- that's huge!
