Last year I posted about the SHOP, PLAY, WIN!® Collect & Win Game featuring MONOPOLY at Vons and about the last call to play the 2019 SHOP, PLAY, WIN!® Collect & Win Game and these posts were super popular and helpful for so many people that I thought I’d post about the 2020 game as well.
There are a few changes this year too!
I play the MONOPOLY Collect & Win game at my local Vons, but you can Shop, Play, Win! at any of the Albertsons Companies stores like Albertsons, Safeway, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, Carrs/Safeway, United Supermarkets, Amigos, Albertsons Market and Market Street stores.
How to play and win Safeway Monopoly Shop Play Win
First, I highly encourage you to use the Shop Play Win app on your phone. It saves time, tracks your codes, prizes, and markers. And, it enters you into the second chance sweepstakes automatically.
Download the Shop Play Win app www.shopplaywin.com today.
This year the app is making me sign in every time I go to use it, but it’s so easy to use once you sign in!
There are 4 ways to win
1. Instant winner tickets & coupons
2. Collect game board markers
3. Digital token sweepstakes
4. 2nd chance sweepstakes
How to play Safeway Monopoly Shop Play Win Game
In 2020 head over to your local Safeway February 5, 2020 to May 5, 2020. Each time you make a purchase, you’ll get a Monopoly game ticket. Plus, you’ll get a bonus game ticket for each purchase of a specially tagged product. You have until May 28th to redeem the coupons and prizes in the store.
Receive a game ticket:
1. with each purchase transaction in-store at any participating store
2. for each participating bonus vendor product purchased in-store
3. for every ten (10) bonus products purchased in one transaction in-store
FYI: the SHOP, PLAY, WIN! Promotion featuring MONOPOLY is an in-store only program and is not available with online grocery orders.
Instant winner tickets
Once you open up the game ticket, you’ll find that some of them have instant winners inside. So far I’ve won dry beans, a donut, bottled dressing, and pasta.
Or there may be a coupon inside. And many of these coupons are for things I already buy, so these are useful too.
New for the game in 2020, there will be instant winner tickets with cash, cars, gift cards, and an instant winner of One Million dollars game ticket available.
The instant win cash tickets cannot be redeemed in-store. You’ll need to enter the ticket code into the app or online to have the prize verified.
If you win an instant win cash prize over $200, you’ll need to complete a high-level prize form and send the coupon to the administrator for verification. If you win a gift card valued at $25, you’ll need to enter the code via the app or online then pick up your gift card at the store. The coupon will not be accepted at the store.
If you win $1 – $10 in Just for U Dollars, you’ll have to enter the code and load the offer to your Just for U account.
Collect game board markers
Hint: you don’t need to attach or tape all of the game board markers (or game pieces) to the board. Simply use the app to track the game pieces. Make sure to save the game pieces!
Sure, you can attach all the pieces to the game board if you want, but why waste your time?
I have all my game pieces in a bag.
Scan the 2-D or QR code game pieces and watch the readouts. If you collect all of a section, find all the markers (pieces) to turn them in.
Safeway will need to see all of the game pieces themselves, not simply the app readout to verify that you have won.
Digital token sweepstakes
This is the part that seems to have the most reward for me!
Simply scan the digital code inside the game ticket (see the photo above) with the app and collect tokens.
The number of tokens you win per game ticket will vary from 1 to some higher amount. The app will tell you how many you’ve won each time.
You can redeem those tokens (while supplies last) for really useful stuff like a $25 grocery gift card, Fandango rewards, gas & grocery rewards, or product rewards (free product).
For example, a $25 grocery gift card will cost you 275 tokens. You can only redeem one reward per category so I always go for the highest dollar amount like the $25 grocery gift card.
Free products such as a container of yogurt or a box of waffles will range from 20 to 60 tokens. Each product reward has a limit as well – you’ll see the limits in the app.
The app even tracks what you’ve redeemed for you so you don’t have to carry around another coupon; they are loaded automatically to your Just For U rewards card.
Make sure to enter the phone number associated with your Just for U account at checkout to redeem rewards.
There are also sweepstakes you can enter with the tokens. And I use my tokens on these sweepstakes after I’ve redeemed them for the more useful items like gift cards and rewards.
2nd chance sweepstakes
Every online code that is played is automatically entered into the 2nd Chance Sweepstakes.
In past years, only two people have won the million dollars using the game pieces and the game board. The other million dollar winners came through the 2nd Chance sweepstakes, so it pays to play online!
