    August 17 – 23


    Just a few thoughts:





    1. Safeway had (and I stress had) a reputation for being over-priced. That is in the past and you'll often find Safeway more than competitive especially when you include the average value of AirMiles offered on heavily discounted manufacturers weekly specials. In fact sometimes it is possible to get more in value in AirMiles than it cost to buy the product.





    2. The average value of an AirMiles to the consumer is approximately $0.11. Using an average value helps one determine a comparative value to the same product in other stores. The most popular method of valuing AirMiles I find is to take a product and determine how much it cost to buy an AirMile with it.





    This could lead to two products: A costing $0.20 and Airmile and B costing $2.00 an Airmile.





    To my mind valuing AMs this way just encourages people to buy as much a product A rather than B. People could end up buying for the sake of getting AirMiles rather than products they use at good prices or can donate to charity cost effectively. But how do you know if A is a good deal.










    August 17 – 23



    In the following first number is sale price. Second number is effective value based on $0.105/AM). If there is a multiple offer, ie, B3G15 & B6G45 a third number corresponds to the value of the extra offer.


    With effective valuing you can compare the relative prices of a product after accounting for the AirMiles against the same product in another store. For example,


    If Coca-Cola is $2.00 with 10 Airmiles it has an effective value of $0.90 [$2 - (10 x $0.11)]. If another store is selling the same product for $1 you know the effect of the AirMiles beats that price.


    Print off a copy of the following to take comparison shopping.



    SS = Safeway Select
    Saf = Safeway
    Sig =Signature
    Sch = Schneider's
    GMS = Gourmet Meat Shop
    OO = O Organics
    ER = Eating Right
    ML = Maple Leaf
    BC = Betty Crocker or Bakery Counter
    NPG = No Price Given



    OK, so it looks like Safeway is continuing to shrink the number of AirMiles offered on many products (see Irish Spring below).

    You might find some value in Lysol products if you have BOGO coupons.

    The only other thing I see that may have value is the Red Rose tea. Fairway has it on for $4.99 this week which is the same price as Safeway which has bonus AMs. However, if you can get Red Rose elsewhere for less than $4.11 do not buy it at Safeway.

    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:

    Nabob Coffee B2G50 13.99/11.36 (Contrast that with page 6’s Folger’s Coffee 7.99/6.94). I know some people swear by Nabob but the price difference is ridiculous to me.

    Dad’s Cookies B4G50 4.50/3.19


    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.

    EMAX's Spreadsheet:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...nSzZyd2c#gid=0

    Email.direct:












    Also, if you do use your AMs for flights instead of products in all likelihood you can set the effective prices lower. However, it is always a good thing to cross reference with an Airlines website prices to make sure. Don't forget you pay the taxes extra.

    Finally, to all of you who have thanked me for this thread, thank you back as well.

    Well, they still haven't brought back the "Buy 5 House Brands Get 50 AMs" but they do have a house brand special this week:

    Ultra Laundry detergent.

    Buy 2 Get 20 AMs @ $4.99 each

    Got my first e-mail from Safeway today Dec.2nd

    Pleasantly surprised to see large amount bonus AirMile coupons for items not in the flyer:

    http://www.safeway.ca/emaildirect/of...ct_49_2007.jpg

    I note there wasn't a house brand item with bonus AMs in this week's flyer. Hopefully this means the Buy 5 Get 50 AMs offers are returning

    TUESDAY IS 10% OFF DAY (Minimum $35 Purchase).

    Freebs,

    Noticed Pookmail has been off line for a few days.

    I gather these people have a history of problems with their server.

    Everytime I go to the States I end up in a non Safeway store that has a flyer that looks virtually the same. Seems they operate under several names in the US.

    We were just in Vegas and ended up grocery shopping at Von's. Same chain.

    Here's a link showing some affiliates. Don't know if any operate in Eastern Canada:

    OK, I was just at Safeway and still no Buy 5 Get 50 AMs on house brands but this is the fourth and last week of the big name brand promos so hopefully...

    I looked at the Coke products in relation to the coupon link I provided above:

    Buy 2 x 24 Get 50 AirMiles

    Although today you can get an extra 10% off on a $35 total purchase I'm just going to analyze this on this week's full price:

    A. One 24 pack = $7.99 (equivalent to $4.00 for 12)

    B. One 12 pack = $2.99 (let's say $3.00)

    So despite offering AMs on the 24 pack the 12 pack is a better price on a cash basis $3/12 vs. $4/12 in the 24 pack.

    All right but you do get the AM bonus (Buy 2 x 24 Get 50). That's 12.5 AMs/12 tins.

    Each AM has an approximate value of $0.135 (See previous analysis "Valuing Air Miles").

    12.5 x 13.5 = approx. $1.69. Being conservative let's say $1.60

    So if you collect AMs and buy bulk the equivalent cost of 12 tins bought in the 24 pack is $4.00 - $1.60 = $2.40 vs. $3 for the regular 12 pack.

    So you do get a small advantage buying the higher priced larger pack if you're an AirMiles collector.

    3. Safeway house brand pop is $2.50/12 tins this week so you get a very minor advantage with the Coke product and if you prefer name brand then this is a no-brainer (unless you can buy Coke cheaper than $2.40/12 tins elsewhere).

    Deposit & Recycling fees not taken into account.

    Just popped in and bought a couple 24 packs even though the cost of a 12 pack is a better deal until you factor in the AMs.

    What I'd forgotten about was that the 24 pack comes with coupons. One is a "Buy 6 two litre bottles of Coke products and get 20 AMs". Around this time of year I'd do that anyway. As I bought 2 packs to get the 50 original AMs I've now ended up with 2 coupons worth 40 AMs (approx. $5.20) bonus that I can spend on On Sale Coke products.

    Other useful coupons on the box are 2 for 1 Domino's Pizza and Roger's New Release Videos.

    Aren't Domino's 2 for 1 already? Does this mean the coupon gets me the free pizza free? Ah! the mysteries of life!

    GOOD ALERT!

    I was just in Safeway again.

    There's a promo on Kraft(???) products. Buy Any 8 Get a $10 Safeway Gift Card.

    Christie's Crackers are 2 for $4. Buy 8 = $16 and you get the $10 card.

    That brings the effective price to 8 for $6 ($16 - $10) or $0.75 each.

    I have about 16 $0.75 coupons on the Organic versions. I didn't see them on the shelf late today but if they're there tomorrow, eligible and also 2 for $4 then using coupons equals getting them free.

    Even if not I'll use the $10 card on the next AM special.
