Just in time to take the sting out of tax day, Costco’s got a new coupon book. They’ve changed the format a little bit, which I find much nicer. They now have all of the online coupons on separate pages, so that they aren’t combined with the coupons that you can use in the warehouses. It makes it much easier to quickly browse through for items to pick up at your local Costco.
This latest coupon book runs from April 15 through May 9th. There are 70 coupons that you can use at your local warehouse, then another 14 instant savings (no coupon necessary) items, plus an additional 20 coupons that are good only at Costco.com. So, that’s quite a bit of savings you can enjoy for the next three and a half weeks. I’ve created a PDF for the April Costco Coupon Book (3.8 MB PDF) that you can download or browse through, in case you haven’t gotten yours yet. Unfortunately, you cannot print out the PDF and use it in lieu of original coupons at Costco (for all of you that ask); Costco will only accept the original coupons.
There are plenty of great things you can save on this month, of course tires ($70.00 off a set of 4 Bridgestone tires), lots of items for Spring cleaning, including car, and also some items that would be great for enjoying a nice summer after the long winter. The instant savings deals are filled with deals on computers and electronics, as are the Costco.com coupons. I did want to point out to all of you looking for a new mattress, there’s also an instant savings deal of $100.00 off of a Sealy Barryton Queen Mattress Set. There are a few other things that I wanted to specifically mention too:
- Kirkland Signature Jacquard Beach Towels, 40″ x 72″, $3.00 off; no limit. I love the KS beach towels, so much so that I have two sets even. They are really nice and thick, which is great for those times when you aren’t laying on the softest of surfaces. They are also all plush and soft, which feels nice but I think that the plushness also keeps the sand from clinging to it as much so that you aren’t being exfoliated the whole time you’re laying on the towel. They always have them in a variety of colors and patterns; good for the whole family really. The other thing that I really like about these is that they don’t fade with all the sun and washing; mine still look bright and colorful after a couple of years of use. I don’t think you’ll find a better deal on comparable beach towels anywhere either, especially not with $3.00 off.
- KitchenAid Stand Mixer Professional HD Series, 475 Watt motor with 5 quart bowl, $40.00 off; limit 3. I know, I know, I write about this every time they have a coupon for it. But it really is that good of a deal. Even without a coupon, Costco almost always has the best prices on the KitchenAid mixers, but with the coupon they are a spectacular deal. I’ve had my KitchenAid for years now and use it often and it is still going strong and looks like the day that I bought it. My mom has had her KitchenAid for decades (almost 3 now I think) and it still works fantastically. These mixers are durable and will definitely be a once in a lifetime purchase. If you really like someone they would make a great gift or you could just make the investment in your own kitchen gadgetry. You can also get these through Costco.com: currently $299.99, including shipping. That would be just $259.99 if you use this coupon. Also, you can get a mail-in rebate form online that will allow you to get a free attachment of either the Food Grinder or the Rotor-Slicer/Shredder for free when you buy the mixer.
- Bellatoria Ultra Thin Crust Pizza, 3 pack, $3.50 off; limit 10. I know frozen pizzas aren’t gourmet or anything, but they are quick and easy to prepare. So, if you like to keep some on hand for a simple no hassle dinner or lunch, these are really delicious. I think I like these because they have a very thin crust that you can get very, very crispy. I always have a hard time getting a crispy enough crust when I order a pizza, so I actually prefer these sometimes. They have a variety of toppings but the pepperoni is really our favorite because it’s got a nice spicy zing to it. The last time I bought these they were $12.99, so that would be $9.49 with this coupon. I would definitely be taking advantage of this coupon if we were in the US right now. I might even get a couple of boxes of them.
- FoodSaver Heat Seal Vacuum Bag and Roll Combo Pack, $8.00 off; limit 3. I wanted to point this coupon out for all of you that use the FoodSaver to portion out your bulk food purchases from Costco. I’m so jealous! We were going to finally buy a FoodSaver but then we found out we were moving, so we decided to skip it since it couldn’t come with us. In any case, this is such a good idea if you’re going to take the time to portion out your food, you might as well use great tools to do it. I know that Costco, at least where we were in Austin, always had the FoodSaver and the bag and roll combo pack available. But without a coupon the bags are a little on the pricey side, so you definitely want to take note of this and stock up!
Those are just some of the things that I wanted to call attention to, but there are a ton of other things that are good deals this month. For instance, that Kirkland Signature Crystal Clear Cutlery (that’s plastic forks, knives, and spoons to you and me) is a great deal at $2.00 off and some of the best plasticware ever! It’s durable and you could actually use it to eat with, without worrying about the fork bending under the pressure of your lettuce leaves. And to go with that you can get some Hefty foam plates for $2.00 off, and you’re ready to have a picnic.
