Short Answer: Safeway does not have a companywide senior discount policy, but some Safeway stores may offer a senior discount day. The grocery store chain also offers a loyalty program and weekly ads to help customers save at its stores. For more information about getting a senior discount at Safeway, as well as other grocery stores that offer senior discounts, see below.
Safeway Senior Discount Policy
Safeway discounts are determined regionally and often vary in terms of frequency and exact discount amounts. This means there is no companywide senior discount policy.
We contacted Safeway stores in Idaho, California, Virginia, and Maryland to find out if they offer senior discounts. None of the locations we contacted offered senior discounts — neither ongoing nor a specific senior discount day. However, customers report that some Safeway stores do offer discounts to seniors on a particular day of the week. The best way to find out if and when your local store offers senior discounts is to check your weekly ad or contact your local Safeway. Exact days and age requirements are likely to vary by location.
Other Ways to Save at Safeway
If you can’t get a senior discount at Safeway, the company’s free just for U loyalty program allows shoppers to earn points redeemable for discounts on groceries and gas, along with digital coupons, special deals, and free items.
