Costco US Coupon Book: July 12 – August 5, 2012

July 6th, 2012 · 9 Comments

The new Costco US coupon book runs from this coming Thursday, July 12, through the first week of August to August 5, 2012.  This month there are coupons worth more than $1,700.00 in discounts, and then another $5,800.00 in online deals at Costco.com.  The value of the coupon book is roughly the same as last month.  There are some items that I really like in this coupon book, but overall I’m not as impressed as I’ve been with some of the recent book.  But still, there are a few gems in here.

Costco US Coupon Book: July 12 - August 5, 2012

I’ve uploaded the new Costco US Coupon Book PDF (or view it in the Google PDF viewer) so you can browse it if you haven’t gotten yours yet.  While you can print these out for reference purposes, Costco only accepts the original coupons (if your location requires you to hand them in).  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 you were not aware, the coupon books are only mailed to the primary member on the account.

First things first, the usual tire coupon is for $70.00 off a set of Bridgestone tires this month. But wait, there’s more!  You also get $30.00 off of installation for your shiny new set of Bridgestone tires; that makes installation just $26.00. So make your car safe for any upcoming Summer road trip plans and get a new set of tires.

There are 4 or 5 instant coupons that I would definitely take advantage of this month.  I think it is great that Costco US seems to be getting more and more instant savings deals each month so that you don’t have to worry about having your coupon book or cutting out the actual coupons to be able to take advantage of the savings.  In any case, the first instant coupon is not necessarily something I would buy, but is great if you need it:  3TB FreeAgent GoFlex Seagate External Hard Drive for $20.00 off.  How amazing is it that you can get a 3 terabyte external drive?  Am I the only person here that remembers when your computer was huge and had less storage space than a calculator probably has now?  This would be great if you have a lot of data to store and don’t want to keep it on your regular machine, or for doing regular backups of your notebook computers too.

The other instant coupons I like are actually things I would be buying if I were in the US right now.  This month you can get $1.50 off the 24 cookie pack of Kirkland Signature Chocolate Chunk Cookies.  I love these, Dave loves these, and they’re never going to go bad in our house.  Along with the cookies, I would also pick up the case of Pellegrino Mineral Water for $3.00 off 12, 25.3 ounce bottles.  I love to have the mineral water to jazz up my juice drinks, especially with the Langers Mango Nectar.  I would also pick up some beef jerky with the coupon for $3.50 off the Oberto or Pacific Gold jerky.  This is great for hikes and Dave and I always have some in the house during the months that we go hiking.  In addition to all of that stuff, I would also be using the instant savings on the Vita Coco Coconut Water for $5.00 off 6, 1 liter containers.  Coconut water is supposed to be the new wonder drink packed with lots of electrolytes and good stuff, all great for post-workout rehydration, so I’d definitely try it out given the coupon.

In the regular, clipping necessary coupons, there are also a couple of things that I really like.  Tops amongst them is the Haagen-Dazs ice cream bars.  You can get $3.00 off a 15 ice cream bar box of their Vanilla Milk Chocolate Almond bars.  And they are like a little piece of ice cream heaven.  I don’t even like ice cream all that much but I really like these and we always bought them when there were coupons.  There are also coupons for the standard and necessary household items for laundry detergent, toilet paper, and paper towels.  I really like the All Free and Clear laundry detergent, and would certainly pick up at least one bottle with this coupon: $2.50 off 185 ounce jug of either the Free & Clear or Sainlifter.  You can get $2.00 off Bounty paper towels and Charmin toilet paper too.  The other coupon I like is the one for $3.00 off the Swiffers – wet, dry, dusting or starter kit.  I might have to have my mom go get some of these for me because Swiffers are crazy expensive here in the UK, so I have to use other things for my dusting needs and nothing is really as good as picking up dust and not just pushing it around.  The last normal coupon that I like is for Oral-B Toothbrushes.  You can get $4.00 off a pack of 8 of my favorite toothbrushes ever, the Oral-B Advantage CrissCross.  No other toothbrush compares.  Your teeth and dentist will love you if you get a pack of these because they clean your teeth so well.  These combined with the Oral-B Pro Expert toothpaste and you will feel like you just got your teeth cleaned every day.

While there’s nothing that stands out as being a super great deal this month, there are a lot of coupons for a variety of items that are good buys.

    i agree that 2595LMT-HD is likely an costco exclusive model, great deal considering the HD traffic receiver alone will cost a bunch

    ==================
    Garmin 2595LMT-HD (I took a photo but missed the price). The 2595LMT additionally has traffic, bluetooth, voice activation and smartphone link capability. More importantly I have feeling this is an exclusive for Costco as its not marketed as “-HD” anywhere else and I think this means it has the special car power adapter (GTM 60™ HD Digital Traffic Receiver) which gives traffic without ads. Did anyone see the price for this? Can anyone confirm my suspicions?

    Just checked my photo again and indeed it does include the GTM 60. So before you rush to use the coupon you might want to consider the newly introduced 2595LMT-HD in the store.

      @EnglishmanInNY – Yeah, traffic without ads definitely sounds better than having ads in your face as you are driving. I have a TomTom with traffic and it is awesome because they will redirect you automatically when there are traffic issues and that can save so much time and aggravation it is worth an extra cost.

    I’m in the market for a GPS and was excited to see the Garmin 2555LM come up in the coupon book ($169.99 seems like a good deal) however I noticed yesterday in the store that they introduced the Garmin 2595LMT-HD (I took a photo but missed the price). The 2595LMT additionally has traffic, bluetooth, voice activation and smartphone link capability. More importantly I have feeling this is an exclusive for Costco as its not marketed as “-HD” anywhere else and I think this means it has the special car power adapter (GTM 60™ HD Digital Traffic Receiver) which gives traffic without ads. Did anyone see the price for this? Can anyone confirm my suspicions?

    If my suspicions are correct and its around $220, I think this might be a better deal as the GTM 60 is ~$70 on its own.

    I agree, the Whalen racks are AWESOME! Far better quality than their counterparts at Home Depot and already significantly cheaper at Costco without the coupon. It took some cussing to assemble them but when done correctly they are rock solid–rated for 5,000 pounds! I don’t think you can find a better value in storage. I also saw they make a sweet free standing closet unit that looks equally sturdy although slightly less industrial looking.

    Is there any word on which bank Costco will have an association with now that Capital One will no longer be in the picture?

    The Whalen storage rack is an absolutely excellent deal!
