Safeway Senior Discount Day (+ Other Grocers With Senior Discounts)

Short Answer: It depends on your location. Some Safeway stores may offer a senior discount day, and others do not. For more information on Safeway senior discounts and other ways to save, see below.

Is There a Safeway Senior Discount Day?

According to Safeway corporate representatives, store discounts are regionally determined and often vary in terms of exact discount and frequency. We also contacted Safeway stores in Idaho, California, Virginia, and Maryland. None of the locations we contacted offered senior discounts. The best way to check when and if your local store offers senior discounts is to check your weekly ad or contact your local Safeway to inquire.

Safeway’s free loyalty program, just for U, allows shoppers to earn points redeemable for discounts on groceries and gas, along with digital coupons, special deals, and free items. Safeway also offers coupons in your local store’s weekly ad, which you can view online after selecting your location.

      Hi Craig,
      Thanks for catching this! It looks like Kroger offered a senior discount up until this July; the discount has since been discontinued. Fry’s still offers the 10% discount like you said — we’ve added it to our list!
