Safeway Hardship Discount Over

Safeway recently gave us one less reason to stay loyal during the construction of Social Safeway Mark II. As GM pointed out, Safeway offered an automatic 10% discount to Georgetown residents when they shop at one of Safeway’s other stores. GM naively thought this hardship discount would last during the extent of the construction. He found out last weekend that that’s not the case. Apparently Safeway stopped the discount in July.

GM didn’t notice until his Safeway Club Card discount seemed only as big as, well, a normal Club Card discount. The cashier verified our suspicions, the 10 percent discount was discontinued. Presumably Safeway figures whatever habits Georgetowners will form during the construction have already formed.

And hey, how’s that construction coming anyway? Construction photo after the jump: Continue reading

Details on How to Get Free Safeway Delivery

GM told you all about Safeway’s plan to give us free delivery during the construction of Social Safeway Jr. A helpful reader has provided the Georgetown Metropolitan with a little more detail on how exactly to claim that free delivery:

1.    Go to Safeway.com
2.    Create a New Account
3.    Order over $50 worth of groceries
4.    When you checkout, use the promotion code “FREE642″

This deal reaches significantly beyond just Georgetown. Anyone in the following zip codes can partake: 20005, 20006, 20007, 20008, 20009, 20010, 20036 & 20037. That’s a huge chunk of NW DC, covering ground from Georgetown all the way over to Dupont, Logan and Columbia Heights. 20008 alone goes from Kalorama all the way up to Friendship Heights.

But there’s one zip code pretty close to Safeway that’s not covered: 20052, otherwise known as the campus of the George Washington University. Ouch. That’s no way to draw students away from Trader Joe’s.
