Extreme Couponing Canada Shopping: Customer Appreciation Day at Safeway, Saved 94% Off Retail Prices

extreme couponing canada

Today was Customer Appreciation Day at Safeway which happens the first Tuesday of every month. You get your choice of 10x the Airmiles or 10% off on a purchase of $35+. Since I always use coupons and they take 10% off the pre-coupon total, 10% is the better choice for me!

The best Airmiles deal this week is definitely the Mr. Clean which is great as my household is running low on cleaners and the other household I shop for is almost out. They’re on for 2/$5 and buy 2 get 30 airmiles. There is a brandsaver coupon for buy 2 save $1 which brings their cost down to $4!

Remember that you can do a maximum of 10 times an Airmiles bonus points offer or a maximum of 500 airmiles per bonus point offer per day, whichever comes first. I did 10x the buy 2 get 30 airmiles for the Mr. Clean, which is the maximum.

Here’s the breakdown:

20 x Mr. Clean Cleaners 2/$5 – $1 coupon from brandsaver (no longer available online) = 2/$4 + 30 airmiles WUB 2

Oasis Orange Juice $3.50 – Free product coupon from Oasis Bottled Juice from this shopping trip = FREE

5 x Stouffers Bistro Sliders $3.99 – Free product coupons from 10 Pack Carnation Hot Chocolate Boxes (purchased at Dollerama for $2) = FREE

12 x Johnsonville Sausage $3.99 -Raincheck for BOGO from last week = $3.99/2 + 25 airmiles WUB 3

Subtotal: $121.33
Taxes: $5.40
Coupons used: $57.39
10% Off for Customer Appreciation: $12.13
Total paid: $57.21

While that does seem like a lot, I also earned 402 Airmiles! Converting that into Shell Gas Certificates which is what I always redeem for that is $46! So, spending $57 gave me $46 of gas for an out of pocket total of $11 for all.

Extreme Couponing Canada Breakdown:

Regular retail price: $198.33
Sale Prices: $121.33
Total paid: $11.21 after accounting for $46 in Gas Gift Certificates earned through Airmiles!

Sale price savings: 91%
Retail price savings: 94%


  1. OMG!!! Mr. Clean is my favorite cleaner! What a great shopping trip, so bummed we don’t have a Safeway here in ON

  2. Love all your shopping trips. We treat airmiles like cash too since we redeem them for restaurant gift cards. Great for a nice meal out every once in a while!

  3. Wow, so many goodies! Awesome shopping, love the posts
