Well, just in time for some much needed post-holiday savings, the new Costco coupon book is out. There are savings of $1,600.00 for use in the warehouses and an additional $3,500.00 in Costco.com savings. Lots of coupons and lots of things to stock up on while you can get a discount. There are some great coupons for cleaning supplies, snacks, fitness gear, and another one for tires too. Plus, because it is coming up on tax time, there’s a coupon for TurboTax too. Oh yeah, and there’s even a coupon to plan ahead and order your Valentine’s Day roses through Costco.com now too. For those of you with babies, there is also a coupon for diapers.
I’ve created a PDF of the January Costco Coupon Book that you can download or print to browse through if you didn’t get yours yet.
My Favorite Coupons This Month:
- TurboTax, $10.00 off; limit 2: This coupon saves you a little bit of much needed on do-it-yourself tax prep. We’ve been using TurboTax for years, like more than 12 years now. The software makes it so easy to do your taxes because it uses a nice interview style where they step through all of the information by asking you a series of questions, in plain language not IRS-ese so you can actually understand it. In addition, they have great help and additional information about anything that might be confusing to you. And one of the great things that I love is the list of reasonable deduction amounts for any items that you may have donated to a non-profit during the year. This is particularly useful if you donate clothing or household items to Goodwill or Salvation Army and don’t know a real value; you won’t have to guess or under value your stuff anymore. This coupon is good for several different versions of the software: Deluxe No State, Deluxe with State, Premier No State, Premier with State, Home and Business with State.
- 36 Long Stem Red Roses for Valentine’s Day, $64.99 delivered after $5.00 off: I love getting and giving fresh flowers, and honestly the roses from Costco are always so beautiful, it seems hard to go wrong. The only thing that might be off putting for some people is that delivery must fall on either February 11 or 12, but this is only because Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year. With this deal you can order now and not worry about forgetting it too! For the price of $64.99 you get 36 long stem red roses and a glass vase, plus delivery, which is really a good deal because from other flower places you might pay that much for just 12 or if you’re lucky 24 roses. And then they’ll make you pay extra for delivery. Of course, the alternative is to just get in your car and go to your closest Costco and pick up some fresh flowers yourself.
- Swiffer, $2.50 off; limit 4: I love the Swiffer dusters and always keep a stock of them on hand. They really do pick up and an amazing amount of dust without just pushing it around or throwing it into the air. What I really like though is that the little handle allows you to get to stuff and in places that you can’t with your hand (or at least I can’t with my big hand). Of course, you can also use this coupon to get some savings on the other Swiffer products: Sweeper Starter Kit, 64 count Dry Refill, 48 count Wet Refill, 20 count Dusters. I like the idea of the wet or dry sweeper pads, however, all of my hard surface spaces are big enough that it really makes it less of an option now. But the wet sweeper pads are great for quick clean up jobs or in your bathroom.
- Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion, 2 – 18 ounce bottles, $4.00 off; limit 1: It’s winter and dry skin season at my house. The Aveeno lotion is my favorite because it is thick and goes on nicely without feeling sticky or unpleasant, plus it doesn’t have a fragrance. I think the thing I like most is the nice thick texture of the lotion though because it allows it to keep my skin moisturized all day long. Even my somewhat temperamental skin can deal well with this lotion because it doesn’t have anything irritating like the fragrances or greasiness that you find in other moisturizers. The two, large sized bottles of this that you get in the pack at Costco are usually enough to keep me in lotion for the whole year too.
- Snapware 36-Piece MODS Food Storage Set, $5.00 off; limit 5; no coupon needed: I’ve got some Snapware containers (that I didn’t buy at Costco) that I absolutely love. They have a super seal but are still so easy to get into and close up that you can’t believe they are sealed so well. I find that they are great for things like cereal and crackers. However, this set is nice because they’ve got some smaller sized containers that you could use for taking your lunch to work. And with their tight seal, you wouldn’t have to worry about anything spilling or leaking out of them either. All of the containers that I have now are really big, so it would be nice to have the smaller ones that you could use for leftovers and get away from using so many Ziplocs perhaps. I’ve been eying these for a few weeks now, so with the $5.00 off, I might just finally be tempted to buy the set and expand my Snapware collection.
