Albertsons, Safeway and other stores that use the Just For U program have a new opportunity to rack up some bonused credit card spend while also making a profit thanks to a new Visa gift card deal.
- Buy $100+ Visa gift card at Albertsons, Safeway & other Just For U stores & get a $10 instant discount.
- Direct link to digital coupon.
- Expires December 12, 2020.
- Limit 1 per household.
These types of Visa gift card deals only require that you spend $100 or more which means they work on variable load cards. That means it’s best to buy a $500 Visa gift card if you want to maximize the bonused spend opportunity seeing as you’d be paying a $5.95 activation fee anyway.
That $5.95 activation fee means you’ll come out ahead by $4.05 even before taking into account the bonus points you’ll earn from your credit card. For example, paying with an Amex Gold card would earn you 1,984 Membership Rewards on top of the $4.05 profit.
It’s best to save this digital coupon to your account ASAP as Just For U coupons sometimes disappear before their expiry date if you’ve not already clipped them.
This is the kind of event in which the scammers and the creeps roll out of their hole to tamper with cards and steal from us. Keep eyes and ears open
“ For example, paying with an Amex Gold card would earn you 1,984 Membership Rewards”. Is this RAT proof?
So long as you’re not working on the minimum spend of a new Gold card, I’ve not heard any DPs suggesting Amex is clawing back transactions of this nature.
Stephen, P2 has just met the $5k spend with vgc on a plat 100k sign-up bonus at safeway; will see or hope the bonus will post after stmt date later this mo.
Be eager to hear your report on this, so please make sure to post in the Facebook group or back here when you have results. Also, can you describe the amount you spent on each trip the grocery store, and how many times over what period you did the spend?
so, this variable vgc would take 5 swipes to liquidate @ WM?
Since these are Metas, it will be a pain to liquidate.
I picked up two fixed value of these cards yesterday and was able to use them right away at Costco.
