Safeway has a much smaller selection compared to Fred Meyer, which is less than 1/5th a mile away. As such, I never shop at Safeway. However, I recently learned of a promotion they had, where if you buy any 10 TV dinners, they'd give you two movie tickets for free. Being a slickdealer, I had to jump on that. I discovered not only were prices significantly higher than Fred Meyer, but often lower quality. At the checkout, they claimed I didn't buy "the right kind" of TV dinners. The cashier explained that they do this on purpose, because at this point people just give up and don't get the tickets. I told them to give me a refund, and then I went back and bought the super crappy dinners, and got my tickets. I'm never shopping there again.
