Grocery shopping is really not one of my favorite things to do. I actually dread it. However, I do like a good deal even if I have to work at it. Safeway isn't a cheap place to shop by any means, but I'm used to it since most of the time I've lived in Portland I've lived (or worked) right next to a Safeway. That said, I know their sales and usually their patterns.
Every other week and sometimes every third week in the "Food Day" section of the Oregonian they have a $10 off a $50 purchase at Safeway hidden in with the ads. Since I moved in March I've become more of a Fred Meyer shopper (or Winco if I'm willing to brave the crowds) only because the Safeway close by doesn't have a meat counter, bakery, or even the freshest produce. However I'll occasionally make a drive to a better Safeway, especially if I know what I need is on sale that week.
This week they had another deal, $15 off a $50 purchase by trying out their store delivery service AND free delivery. I logged on and their site isn't the easiest to use for online ordering so I kind of put it in the back of my mind.
Well when shopping day rolled around I had a bad cold and cough and having someone bring my groceries sounded awesome. I mustered up the energy and got everything we needed for the weeks dinners for $63, which came down to $48.
You pick a window of time and they do your grocery shopping and have someone bring it by. Not to shabby, especially when you are sick.
I highly doubt I'd use it again...unless they offer more deals like that. I'm certainly not paying $7-$12 for delivery but it is nice to know they have a service like that.
