The $5 Friday promotion at the Safeway chain of grocery stores offers several items for sale at that price on Friday only. Safeway features these products on a page of its weekly circular, and items may vary by store. A customer can also see them online at the company's website.
Merchandise in the $5 Friday sale might range from meat, produce and beverages to snacks, paper goods and prepared foods. A shopper must have a Safeway Club Card, the company's customer-identification and check-authorization card, to receive the promotional pricing. A customer can get a card by printing and completing the application form found online and delivering it to a Safeway store. He can also receive a virtual card by registering on the website when shopping online.
