If you live near a store that uses the Just For U program (Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Randalls & more), check your account as you should have a couple of new digital coupons available which will make you money when buying Visa gift cards.
- Just For U accounts have the following digital coupons:
- Buy two $100 Visa gift cards & save $15
- Buy two $50 Visa gift cards & save $10
- Expires June 5, 2021.
- Limit 1 per household per digital coupon.
Just For U deals on Visa gift cards come in a couple of varieties. Some allow you to buy variable load cards, while others require that you buy fixed-value cards.
These two offers require that you buy fixed-value cards – $100 denominations for one deal and $50 denominations for the other. Although that means your overall bonused spend potential is less, it’s still a good deal because both offers are instantly profitable.
With the $100 Visa gift card deal, you’d normally pay $11.90 in activation fees, so the $15 discount turns that into a profit of $3.10. With the $50 Visa gift card deal, you’d normally pay $9.90 in activation fees, so the $10 discount turns that into a profit of $0.10.
I can’t add the Visa gift card digital coupons 🙁
I was able to add the MC before.
They often pull the digital coupons early, so it looks like that’s what’s happened here. If you already loaded the coupons, they’ll still be there.
Any data points regarding Amex Platinum 10x supermarkets 6 month period and clawbacks welcomed.
I am extremely suspicious that, despite being “Just For Me”, others are able to take advantage of these offers as well.
Lately these have been showing up on Sundays (off cycle from the usual weekly specials). This time it pops up on Wednesday, with the other usual grocery sales.
There’s a Chase offer for Safeway as well, expires 2/14 for me, that could be stacked.
Only 1 week to use this time instead of the usual 2.
I updated/clipped my Randall’s app coupons yesterday, to go today. This GC coupon was not there yesterday, you saved me. Thanks!

Hope this works on acme….
Last week the mc deal didn’t
Its in my acme app, along with a free chicken sandwich and $5 off $5. So I guess I’m going shopping today…
[…] Safeway and other Just For U stores (such as Tom Thumb, Vons, Randalls and Shaw’s) recently had a deal offering up to $25 off when buying fixed-value Visa gift […]
Is it better to use the Visa gift card as a debit card payment instead as a credit card for both in-instore and online?
Do you know if the $100 deal works if I purchase a variable Style visa gift card specifying an amount of $100? That would be great.
Offer specifically calls out two $100 vgc, so I doubt it. Sometimes they will say simply $200 in vgc which will work with variables.

Stack with cash app. Right now they have 10 percent at grocery store up to $7.50
Just bought 2 x 50, paid 75 with cash card, 25 with Amex blue cash everyday for 6%. Also did the 2 x 100 with blue cash.
How much did you get back with cash app?
He got back $7.50, just like he explained in his comment.
I don’t usually shop at grocery stores (weird, I know). Best to use Amex Gold or one of the Amex hotel cards, or something else?
Whichever will give you the best return based on your points valuations and which cards you have. Amex Gold is a solid choice though.
Hi Stephen. What’s your threshold for buying gift cards with the Amex gold card, with the fear of claw backs / account closing?
Provided you’re not currently working on the minimum spend requirement for a new Gold card, I don’t have too much fear of clawbacks when buying gift cards with that card.
Amex has placed a $25k cap on grocery store bonused spend per year. That’s just over $2,000 per month which is more than most people spend on groceries, so I think they anticipate some gift card spending on there, but probably best to not do all $25k on gift cards just in case.
