Remember, as of November 1st, eScrip has changed its policy on contributions from Safeway.  If you are registered with and you shop at Safeway only your purchases made with the following payment types will earn $$$ for AHS.  We are anticipating that funds will drop dramatically because of these changes. 
Debit Card • Check • Cash • Fast Forward Debit Card
SmartCheck • Safeway Gift Card • WIC • CalFresh
If you currently use your credit card only to shop at Safeway, you can do what I did.  Purchase a Safeway gift card with your regular credit card.  Then use the Safeway gift card for all your purchases at Safeway.
