The new Costco UK coupon book starts today, October 31, and runs through November 20. This month, there is a huge £1,300.00 worth of coupons, which is almost twice as much as than the previous book. I guess the difference is that it is starting to feel like holiday shopping and partying season. There are several things that I think would make nice gift items in this latest bunch of coupons. But there just seem to be a lot more coupons in general and coupons on high dollar items like electronics in the form of televisions and cameras, too.
I’ve uploaded the latest Costco UK Coupon Book PDF(or view it in the Google PDF viewer) so you can browse it if you haven’t gotten yours yet. If you didn’t get your book or never do, you should stop by Customer Service and make sure that they have all of your mailing information correct and that you have allowed them permission to send you things in the mail. Also, while you’re there, ask them for a copy of the latest book if they didn’t hand you one when you walked in the store. Here in the UK I never have to actually give them the coupons, and they don’t seem interested in taking them from people that have cut them out either. But I still find it useful to have a copy so I know what to look for because I don’t always notice the signs that they’ve posted to let you know what has a coupon. I usually download a copy to my iPhone before I go to the store so that I can easily reference it while shopping.
I was surprised to see a coupon for 20% off a set of four Michelin tyres. They rarely have this type of coupon here in the UK, unlike in the US where they seem to constantly have a set of tyres on sale. In any case, this is great if you are in need of new tyres before the weather gets more wintry and the roads turn slick and dicey. You can get two sets of tyres with this coupon, which is also great if you’re a two vehicle family.
Now, as I mentioned there are several items this month that seem like they would be good gifts for the holidays if you’re into shopping early and getting that kind of thing out of the way. There’s one item that has a coupon this month that always appeals to the big kid in Dave when we go to Costco lately: an Ion pro session electronic drum kit. If you’ve got a kid, big or small, that has been eyeing this as well, this month you can save £20.00 for a final price of £179.98 (with VAT). The best part about these electronic drum kits is that you can plug in headphones! That’s right, someone can be pounding away on them, either on or off beat, and you won’t be disturbed at all. That’s my favourite gift type item that’s got a coupon this month, but there are several other things like box sets of kids books, jewellery, electric shavers and toothbrushes, and a number of televisions and a couple of cameras too.
Or, you might be the type to give a bottle of wine or whisky for the holidays, or at least like to have them on hand to take to parties with you. So, you’re in luck because there are several coupons this month for various beverages to make your holiday season more festive. I count a cool dozen coupons for things like wine, port, whisky, Bailey’s, beer, champagne, and wine.
And of course, there are some great coupons on products for everyday use, like Persil and Simple facial cleansing cloths. There’s also a nice coupon for £40.00 off two pairs of prescription frames and lenses. If I can manage to find someplace to get an eye exam before these coupons expire, I’ll certainly be using that coupon for myself.
