The British Airways Estore has been on a roll lately! This deal isn’t as lucrative as the bananas 36 points per dollar Nordstrom deal thats currently going on, but it could be an easy win for anyone who shops at Safeway grocery stores.
The Estore is giving 1,000 Avios points for, “First-time customers for any completed online purchase at Safeway.com. All first-time customers get free delivery on their first order of $50 or more.”
Safeway doesn’t have coverage everywhere (like in New York or Miami, for example), but they do have over 1,775 stores across the US, including brands like Genuardi’s (Philadelphia metro). In fact theres a Genuardi’s around the corner from my parents house, so I tried to see if I could buy 3 bananas for $1.20 and pick them up in the store, but you can only check-out if you choose home delivery, which requires a $49 or higher order. Luckily there is free shipping on all $50 orders for first time customers when you use promo code EASY7 at checkout .
I value 1,000 Avios between $10 and $20. Not a bad rebate for $50 in spend- especially if you are going to buy items you planned to purchase anyway.
Note: there is some drama surrounding the Realtytrac promotion also offered through the BA Estore, I think this Safeway offer is pretty legitimate – especially since it requires a purchase.
Hat tip TPG reader Chip! With some great bonus categories and an annual fee that’s waived for the first year, the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card has a lot going for it. If you don’t have PRG, now’s as good a time as any to add it to your wallet, as Amex added some great new benefits several months back.
