Well, it was definitely nice while it lasted. For the past year or so, Safeway has been allowing us to load the $5.00 Friday offers onto our Club Cards and shop those offers through the weekend. It made it so many of us who were unable to get there on Fridays were still able to head to the store and grab the great $5.00 Friday sales.
I have just confirmed that Safeway has ended the Week-end Long $5.00 Friday Just For U program:
I for one, am sad to see it go. I never shop on Fridays because I live too far out of town. I thought it was an awesome move by Safeway to extend it for the whole weekend because more people are likely to have time to stop by and shop in their stores.
I know that I always bought more than the $5.00 Friday stuff when I was there, so they were making money in other areas as well. I am hoping they will reconsider their decision and bring the extended $5.00 Fridays back, but for now, I guess I will just have to miss out on the deals again.
What do you think about them stopping the extended $5.00 Friday offers?
