    160 AMs

    With all the paper & coupons she forgot to give me a scratch card.

    I went back before leaving and asked.

    She tore me off a strip of 6 cards.

    2 apple juice
    1 candy bar

    to go with the:

    apple juice
    candy bar
    potato chips
    back pack

    already won.

    Picked up the back pack this AM. Pretty good quality for a freebie!

    Well thanks to you, Bob, I had a pretty wild day at Safeway's today--printed off 10 of the 3$ coupons and grabbed a bunch of the AM booklets that had the 30AM and did buy the 10 packages of coffee that I had planned to, but like you said, the Espresso (AKA Dark--my favorite) was on for 50% off, so I got 8 of them, and did the 5 separate transactions at self check with my customer service guy taking all the coupons and doing the overrides, etc. So as I was heading off to the car, pulled the receipts, and the AM's didn't all show up--so back to customer service, and who do I see but the same customer service guy that was watching the self checkout...anyhow I know now that they have to fill an adjustment slip out for each transaction, so about 20 minutes later, that was done. And of course, they forgot to give me the 5 scratch cards, so I got those (will scratch those tomorrow--too much excitement for one day). So I'll roll up the AM's some time down the road...did save 30$ off the top, of course, so I think you'd have to call it the OB triple dip (3$ coupon and 30 AM and 50 AM offer). I thank you, and Safeway's thanks you, I'm sure!!

    There is also a 4 page Insert but no prices are given except on the front page which lists 2 Extreme Bonus items. As in the past I expect the “Extreme Bonus” includes a heavily increased price to offset the AirMiles offered so be careful:

    Safeway Brightly Paper Towels (6) 5.99/3.36


    Also they’re starting another scratch and sniff promo so make sure to ask for your cards if the teller forgets to give you any. I recall I got 4 free products last time.

    Careful on those comments, Bob...a week ago you said the same thing about the insert, and then you did the math on the coffee gimmick, and look how that turned out In that vein, will be off to a different Safeway's today looking for one more batch of coffee and "almost free" AM's--just like any Vegas casino, you have to hit 'em while the promos are in your favour!

    Vegas,

    Pretty sure I got the math right this time.

    Funny thing is, I like LV and have spent a total of 2 weeks there but never gambled once. I do, however make good use of the carvers at the prime rib stations. The buffet at the Rio is mind staggering. Any recommendations for food down Fremont Street Way?

    Tried to use the printed Van Houte coupons from SC site at Safeway on McBride Ave in New Westminster but the clerk would not allow me to use them. Seems like acceptance of coupon may be location and store specific.

    I do wonder though. I'm positive corporate spies read this thread. When I went through Safeway yesterday there were 2 employees rearranging all the Van Houtte to the highest shelf where it would be out of sight. Seemed odd to me at the time.

    Good thing I'm tall then...did my last score of 10 cans (5x2, since I know there's a max of 5 offers per day)...oddly enough, I hit the other two stores in town, and neither of them had the espresso on for 50% off, just the one store I hit yesterday--so alas, I spent 60$ for 10 cans of coffee and 400 AM (they all registered this time, so that's good). Goes to show you, I'd figured this week would be quiet on the AM front, and then bang...I read this thread, and hit for over 1,000 AM, which I can use to re-load my account for the next e-auction, or whatever.

    Well now, THAT is a subject I definitely have some expertise on--planning my next pilgrimage for December (a quiet time of the year until NYE)...hotel prices go through the floor stayed at the Rio last year--3 nights for 40$. Got a bunch more nights comp'ed at other properties where the gambling should be better...but I still lost $$ but every property I stayed at had Senior's Days when I stayed--bonus points and offers--am partial to the Boyd properties, where the Video Poker is definitely better. To answer your direct question...also love the Main Street Station (block from Fremont) they have a great mega buffet (not as large as Rio's) which you will enjoy. And it looks like I'll have to pay for airfare and car rental, but food and lodging expenses, due to the coupons involved (I minor in AM's and SDM optimum, I MAJOR in Vegas comps!!) should be minimal.

    Two great sources are

    http://queenofcomps.com

    Jean Scott wrote a few books on frugal gambling, and how to get deals.

    Also

    http://www.americancasinoguide.com

    Maintain by Steve Bourie (who also sells the book of the same name, with oodles of coupons), there are lots of podcasts (including a bunch of videos) that will show the average person how to win more (lose less) at the Casinos...he also is selling his discount book for 50% off (I already bought mine last year, so I don't need another), which is good for the rest of this year...like he says...one coupon could pay for the cost of book...and it is true!!

    How about a SC meet and greet in December in Las Vegas??

    thanks for the info. DH and I would like to go, I had no clue it was cheaper right around Christmas...or this "comp" thing. I knew you could get free drinks, but that was about it! DH loves playing poker so I might just tell him about this.

    Trying to get Buffy to go around Dec. 4 - 9 and I can write part of it off for business.

    I remember one deal we got last time was after buying tickets for Mama Mia at one of the Half-Price show outlets for another $5 (???) we got $15 each off for the Rio Buffet.

    Best prime rib I found was Harrah's. Everyone raved about Mandalay Bay but I thought Harrah's and the Rio was better.

    .or this "comp" thing.
    "Where you goin'? Where you from? Where you stayin'? Let me get you some coupons!"

    -most heard phrase on the Strip (from the Time Share Sales People!).

    Country Grocer has Puff N Soft TP 12 DBL. Roll on for $3.50 each vs. $4.36 AAM (After AMs).

    Whether they are similar sized dbl. rolls I can't say.

    On a roll guyz,

    Had to go back for some business items but also bought a loaf of bread @ 50% off.

    Left and realized the cashier who was night time supervisor had missed the 50% off label.

    Went back, "Ooops! my mistake. I'll refund the whole amount!"

    So I didn't win anything on the scratch & sniff but FREE BREAD! LOL!
