After Safeway’s very own version of Green Stamps ended, they came out with a new way to get people to spend more money. This is sort of like the Monopoly promotion that McDonald’s did years ago. It’s based off of the game, Monopoly, and when you spend money, you get little stickers that go on a paper board they give you. The groups of stickers go in alphabetical order from A to Z with an addition of ? and $. There are in general four stamps for each letter, and 8 of both ? and $.
Once you collect all the stamps for one letter/symbol, you can redeem it for a prize, anywhere from $25 cash to $1,000,000 cash. There are also occasionally special bonus codes which you can enter on a website and win something.
Upon entering a code we got, we saw this joyous news:
We were very excited to have won something, but when we looked at what we had won, it turned out to only be two extra game tickets. I thought it was kind of a pathetic prize, but oh well, at least it was something.
Anyway, I’m hoping we get the $ prize – $1,000,000. We have only four more stamps to go!
Nothing like hoping to get something for nothing 🙂
