SUPER HOT!! Free Bacon at Safeway this week!

Get ready girls. This is one smokin' hot deal. I've never seen a coupon for more than $1.00 off bacon before.

You can get a coupon for $3.00/1 Smithfield Bacon at this website. (Click on the link.)

Here's how:
  1. Be sure you have software to print coupons. If you don't have the software, go here or here and you should be able to download the software - it enables you to print the bar codes. The software is free and has never interfered with any other program on our computers. (Hubby, the computer geek, would not let me use it if it did!)
  2. Go to the Smithfield website and click on "sign up" (top of the webpage).
  3. Complete the Member Services Registration.
  4. When finished it should prompt you to print your coupon. You can hit the back button of your browser to print it twice.
The word from Gina at MoneywiseMoms is that Safeway will have Smithfield bacon on sale 2/$6.00 starting tomorrow. With the coupon that makes the bacon free!!

Thanks to a Tweet from DealSeekingMom I realized that Shoppers also has Smithfield bacon on sale this week - 2/$5.00, also making it free. Update #1: I realized this morning, that our Shoppers does not take printable coupons over $0.99, so I have eliminated this part of the deal.

The sale at Safeway goes through August 25. At Safeway you will need the Safeway Club card in order to take advantage of this deal. Update #2: At least 1 reader had their coupon rejected. Safeway's official policy is that they do not accept printable coupons for more than 50% of the value of the product. However, I will say that not all stores follow this policy. I suggest you ask a clerk about the coupon before you go to purchase your bacon. I still suggest getting the coupon. At a later date, perhaps at another store, this will be a good deal. Bacon is frequently on sale for $3.00 at other stores in the area.

Now, Go. Get your coupons. Get free bacon. Go. Now.

Thanks to MoneySavingMom, MoneywiseMoms and MyFrugalAdventures for putting this one together.

I tried this deal this morning and Safeway will NOT take the coupons. The manager came over and pulled out their IP coupon policy which says that they don't accept IP's for more than 50% off an item's value.

I wonder how much the Smithfield is when it's NOT on sale. Maybe we should just wait until next week and use it on the regular price. I know I've seen it at Giant, too, so maybe that's a better place to use it.

Moneysavingmom has had commenters say they've gotten their free bacon at Harris Teeter; they don't have a problem with IPs.

I also see people reporting they can use the coupon at Walmart for free bacon. Safeway doesn't need our business.

darn! I wish my Walmart had smithfield bacon, I checked this morning and they don't carry that brand.
