    What if you do not have an android or i phone

      Hello, currently these are the two methods for using Just For U. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We have expedited your concern to our Marketing Team for future consideration. Enjoy your day! -Aaron

    I can’t believe Albertsons finally implements digital coupons and then makes the app for only IOS 8+! There are still millions of iPhone 4 (IOS 7) users out there! We only shop at Albertsons about once a month as it is further away than your competitor (who has had digital coupons for at least 2 years now). My husband works nearby, but by the time he gets out of work, Albertsons is nearing closing time with not enough time to do full-scale grocery shopping. I’m sorry to say that the exclusion of the use of this app is one more reason not to shop at Albertsons at all as I see some of the coupons this week to promote the JustForU app are exclusive to the app and not available for clipping. If the idea is to gain more customers… well… seems like you might lose more than you gain.

      Hello Pedro, could you please clarify your post? We’d like to further assist. Thanks! -Aaron

    I also have a Safeway Just For U account. Will both my Safeway and Alberson’s remain separate or will they be combined?

    • Customer Support 18/08/2016 at 1:01 pm

      Hello Larry, the Albertsons Just For U account will remain separate from your Safeway account. We hope this helps! -Aaron

    I don’t think it’s right that only customers with I-phones or androids are the customers who are able to receive the special offers. Your customers who do not have these high priced phones ARE the customers who need the additional savings. Dollar general has a program same as yours and you don’t need an app to use it and it works on the same premise as your phone number. I believe your company can quickly accommodate your non I-phone users if Dollar General can.

      Hello Amy, thank you for the feedback regarding our Just For U promotion. This promotion was not meant to hinder you, but solely meant as an additional method of savings. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We’ll be sure to share your comments with our Marketing Department for further review. –Aaron

  6. jerry kraft 17/08/2016 at 5:49 pm

    so you cant take advantage of just for you from your laptop?

    • Customer Support 18/08/2016 at 1:22 pm

      Hello Jerry, unfortunately it is not an option at this time. Since the Albertsons Just For U program is expanding, future website integration is a possibility. Please stay tuned for updates on Social Media and our Website. Additionally, we will forward your concern to our Marketing Team for further consideration. Thanks! -Aaron

  7. Patt Nash 17/08/2016 at 8:14 pm

    I do not have a smart phone to download your just for U app but I would like to get digital coupons like I do with Kroger. Do you have a way I can take advantage of the digital coupons without being able to use an app?

  8. Carol B 17/08/2016 at 10:11 pm

    I want to echo “R”‘s complaint. I was excited when I read about Just For U until I discovered it wouldn’t work on my laptop. This is what makes Fred Meyer’s program appealing. Please bring the same thing to Albertsons.

    • Customer Support 18/08/2016 at 3:21 pm

      Hello Carol, we have notified the Marketing Department of your concern, as well. We appreciate your feedback. Have a wonderful week! -Aaron

  9. C. Ashe 18/08/2016 at 8:36 am

    Make that 2 of us that don’t have a cell phone. I’m sure there are more. Just wanted to let you know that you are loosing out on potential customers.

  10. Jo-Ann Kachigian 18/08/2016 at 10:13 am

    Can I just clip the coupon in the newspaper ad, since I don’t have these two methods for using Just for U?

    • Customer Support 21/08/2016 at 3:41 pm

      Jo-Ann, many of our ads do offer the option to “Clip or Click”. You are more than welcome to bring these coupons in to redeem them. -Julio

  11. Shelly LaGrange 18/08/2016 at 10:42 am

    Hello. I do not have any type of smart phone, just a computer, so would love it if you had a downloadable app for PCs. I shop almost exclusively at Albertson’s, especially since one has recently opened in my area.

    • Customer Support 21/08/2016 at 3:43 pm

      Thank you for your feedback, Shelly. We appreciate you sharing your suggestions to improve this program. We’ve shared your concerns with our Marketing Department for further consideration. -Julio

  12. MH 18/08/2016 at 10:57 am

    I have a Windows Phone and can’t use the app either. However, I went to safeway.com and was able to login and add items to my list…not sure if that transfers over to Albertson’s, but they use the same Point of Sale system so it should…

  13. Steve Opperer 18/08/2016 at 3:12 pm

    I would like a way to load coupons from my computer and not my cellphone. This would be a good thing for many customers as well as for Albertsons sales. Please get more universal and less exclusive, with your discount programs.
    Thanks,
    Steve

  14. Michele M. 18/08/2016 at 11:20 pm

    Thank you, Aaron. I’d like to add that like others that commented here, I think access on a laptop/computer would be the best solution to make the digital coupons available to everyone whether they have access via phone or computer. I actually log into my account on Smith’s website on my laptop to load digital coupons and create a shopping list which is a lot easier than adding them on my phone. Then we use the Smith’s store app as a convenient for the shopping list while in the store shopping. Since it sounds like the app isn’t required to apply the coupons at checkout, being able to load the coupons online via computer would be great!

    I also just discovered another avenue that I would like to share. Anyone who has a SmartTV or streaming device connected to their TV that has access to the Google Play Store can find the JustForU app to install on the SmartTV or streaming device. I gave it a try and it worked great! My husband even stopped at Albertsons on his way home for a few things and the digital coupons applied perfectly!

  15. Sandy Bieker 19/08/2016 at 8:09 am

    I have been unable to download this app as of yet. I says I have background something that I have to turn off on my settings but I have no idea what its talking about.

  16. B5280 19/08/2016 at 12:03 pm

    Will Albertson’s honor the coupons if we speak to a manager? I do not have an I-Phone or Android…and was always able to use Safeway’s application. Albertson’s needs to correct this toutsuite.

    • Customer Support 21/08/2016 at 7:27 pm

      If the coupons have been added, and were unsuccessfully redeemed, you may speak with an associate at checkout or the Customer Service Booth for further assistance in order to facilitate a refund. At this time, offers to be redeemed at our Albertsons locations may only be added using the just for U app. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We’ll share your concerns with our Marketing Department for further consideration. -Julio

  17. CRejoice 20/08/2016 at 2:08 pm

    How do I find out which locations are applicable to Just For U? App says now available in select locations only. Thank You
    I live in zip 70808

    • Customer Support 21/08/2016 at 7:49 pm

      The mobile app will locate stores near you that are all participating in the program. There are select locations, however it should be noted that all stores in your region are participating. We hope this helps! Thank you for your time. -Julio

  18. Scott R 21/08/2016 at 6:49 am

    Tom Thumb sends updates via email that I can load coupons on my desktop and windows phone. Makes it a whole lot easier than opening an app on my tablet and seeing there are over 100 items to add. Any plans on doing this?

    • Customer Support 21/08/2016 at 7:52 pm

      Scott, at this time we have no information to provide on these updated. However, we will make our Marketing Department aware of the changes you’d like to see reflected for further consideration. Thank you. -Julio

  19. Michelle Fink 24/08/2016 at 1:13 am

    How aggravating to be excluded from digital coupons because I don’t have an Iphone or Android. I like to load digital coupons to a store rewards card or print coupons. Your marketing people need to understand that most people have a laptop or PC at home (and work.) So how does someone get ALL just for offers, other than just a few that are printed in weekly circulars?

    • Customer Support 24/08/2016 at 1:39 pm

      We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused Michelle. We are always looking for new ways to improve our ongoing and upcoming promotions, and we appreciate your feedback. We have forwarded your comments to our Marketing Team for further review and consideration. Thank you! -Samantha

  20. M 24/08/2016 at 9:19 am

    I agree with many of the comments regarding having computers and not smart phones. I also use digital coupons at Smith’s and Fred Meyer. Would like to have that option with Albertson’s as well.

  21. Paul Manson 24/08/2016 at 1:47 pm

    Can the Albertsons clip or click coupons be used at Safeway stores & can Safeway’s clip or clip coupons be used at Albertson’s since they both are owned by Albertsons? I have a Safeway within 10 miles but Albertsons is 40+ miles from me.

    • Customer Support 24/08/2016 at 2:37 pm

      Paul, at this time the Albertsons just for U offers can not be used with Safeway just for U, nor vice versa. If you have both apps, you will need to sign into each on separately and load the offers for each store. Thank you! -Samantha, Customer Support

  22. Gloria J.B. Andrew 25/08/2016 at 4:09 am

    Please allow me to use the “Just For U” site by letting use my personal computer. It worked just fine when using it for Safeway, why not for Albertsons “Just for U”. Please hurry to make it possible to take advantage of ALL the store Coupons/Specials/Just For U

    • Customer Support 25/08/2016 at 10:22 am

      Hello Gloria, thank you for this valuable feedback! We apologize for inconvenience you may have experienced as a result. Your concern have been expedited to our Marketing Team for further review and consideration. Thanks! -Aaron

    Please make this available for the windows phone. Thanks

      Thank you for the feedback, Melinda! We will let our Marketing Team know, for future consideration. Enjoy your weekend! -Aaron

  24. Bill Reynolds 26/08/2016 at 8:35 am

    In my Albertsons store I see tags that say to “scan” the tag below for instant saavings. Is there another app I need to scan? Basically I’ll just be taking a picture of the tag correct?. One of the most confusing apps I’ve used but I still like it…

    • Customer Support 26/08/2016 at 1:09 pm

      Hello Bill, that is a great question! You will need to use the Albertsons Just For U app. When you click the Scan button within the app, it will open up a Bar code scanner. Use this function to scan the tag. It will bring up the coupon in your Just For U account. Click add, and the discount coupon will be loaded to your account. We hope this helps! -Aaron

  25. Bill Reynolds 26/08/2016 at 4:56 pm

    Where can I find the scan button. Do I have the right app downloaded?.

    • Customer Support 27/08/2016 at 11:32 am

      Hello Bill, could you please provide the store location where you saw the scan tags? We’d like to further assist. Thank you! -Aaron

  26. Bill Reynolds 27/08/2016 at 1:27 pm

    My store is the Albertsons in Ontario Oregon. I initally had trouble with the app. Had to put my phone number in several times. The area code kept going in the prefix spot and the prefix kept going in the area code spot. I got it complete but dont see a scan button or option on the justforu app I downloaded. Maybe I need to re-download the app???. I really like the app its just rather confusing.

  27. Ricki Zuckert 28/08/2016 at 1:45 pm

    Can I reuse my just for u deals at different visits up until the expiration date and if so do I just need to go back and re click them?

    • Customer Support 29/08/2016 at 4:48 pm

      Ricki, the offer only need to be clipped once. However, offer usage can be found in the details of the offer. Many offers have limits to the amount of product the savings may be applied to and others have unlimited use. We hope this helps! -Julio

  28. Linda Roundtree 28/08/2016 at 7:47 pm

    So just because we do not have an I phone or android we cannot get the special coupons. Is this fair..It feels like you are giving special treatment to people who have these. Why can you not give it to everyone. You are unfair to older people who do not want a smart phone. You need to take care of all of your customers not just the ones with a smart phone.

    • Customer Support 29/08/2016 at 4:54 pm

      Linda, thank you for sharing your feedback on this program. We are always looking for ways to improve these experiences for our valued customers, and appreciate this opportunity for improvement. We’ll be sure to relay your comments to our Marketing Department for further consideration. -Julio

  29. Bill Reynolds 30/08/2016 at 6:09 am

    Hi Aaron. Any word yet on how Im suppose to scan tags when I cant find a “scan” option on the app?

  30. Pat Jacobsen 03/09/2016 at 11:42 am

    Boy, do I agree with all the complaints from those of us who don’t have (and will not be getting!) a smart phone. I’ve shopped almost exclusively at Albertson’s for 50 years but this latest “promotion” is enough to make me re-think my choice of grocery store. This should never have been rolled out until it was available to everyone. Since you’ve given everyone else the same “pat” reply that is not helpful in the least, don’t bother responding.

  31. pam 12/09/2016 at 1:54 pm

    How about just a good old fashion sale. Just give all the sale the good honest old fashion way, like we use to get sales. I get tired of stores thinking they have to add another way that only certain people can get in, get the deal, etc….. just offer a good honest sale to all.

    • Customer Support 13/09/2016 at 12:41 pm

      Pam, your feedback is very important to us. Please know that this promotion is not meant to hinder you, but to put our valued customers in touch with the best savings and manufacturer coupons. We will share this with our Marketing Department in our continued efforts to make our promotions the best they can be! -Rebecca

  33. Amy Anderson 21/09/2016 at 6:58 pm

    I think Albertson’s is going to take a huge loss with this, look at how many people do not have these high tech phones.
    I personally have many choices as to where I do my grocery shopping, I want to go to a store that has something on sale that does not require me to cut a coupon or download before I go to the store.
    Suggest they rethink their strategy.

    • Customer Support 22/09/2016 at 8:33 am

      Hello Amy, thank you for the valuable feedback! We will deliver your concerns to our Marketing Team for review and consideration. Enjoy your day! -Aaron

  34. Jodi 22/09/2016 at 2:41 pm

    I would like to add my disappointment! It’s unfortunate that you must have the app.

    Your pharmacy “upgrade” not only caused longer prescription fill times, but now I can’t order refills online (must use the app!) and now this.

    I love the folks that work at my local store, they are great, but the people making these decisions are NOT thinking of their customers.

    • Customer Support 22/09/2016 at 3:23 pm

      Jodi, we value and appreciate your feedback. Hearing from our customers is extremely important and integral to our success. We will be sure your concerns are shared for review and consideration by our Marketing Department and Web Developers. -Rebecca

  35. JA 28/09/2016 at 1:45 am

    I’ve read many of the comments from loyal customers who are not able to enjoy the same savings as others do just because they don’t have any of the phones for the apps that would enable them to save money. Most of them are saving money by not paying for an expensive cellphone. If you want to keep those loyal customers, you should do more than just “bring it to the Marketing Department for review and consideration”! Don’t just “talk the talk”–man up and “walk the talk”!
