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.

    Just tried this on Safeway’s sub-par online store and, while it recognized the code as free delivery, the service charge was still billed to me.

    Cory – call the customer service line to get your $12.95 back. They’re really prompt and helpful and you’re unlikely to have to wait to speak to a representative.

    Hoyas – the 20057 zip (Georgetown University) is also included

    What about existing delivery customers? Do we need to type in a promotion code or will the computer recognize my zip code ar checkout? I’ve used the delivery service ever since it was initially offered; a godsend to senior citizens who use public transportation.

    I’m not sure Eileen. You should email homeshopping@safeway.com. They should be able to answer your question.

    Update: Thanks Lindz, I emailed customer service and they did promptly credit back the charge and it’s working now. And I have to say, it’s a great service to the neighborhood. They’re delivering like Domino’s!
