The new Costco UK coupon book started last week on Monday, 1 July, and runs through the first three weeks of July (21 July). There are coupons valued at more than £550.00 in savings, which is a couple hundred pounds less than the previous coupon book. This book started about a week after I left Australia for my holiday in Japan, so I’m a bit late getting it posted. However, if you still haven’t taken a look at it, now you can. Luckily, we are back in London now and I can take advantage of some of these great deals to get the essentials, like laundry items.
I’ve uploaded the new Costco UK Coupon Book PDF (or view it in the Google PDF viewer). 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. In the UK they print the coupons on both sides of the pages and without the codes, so they clearly do not want you to clip the coupons out and give them to your cashier; they just automatically deduct them after they ring up your items. I love this method of couponing and wish that all of the Costco locations in the world would follow suit. Though, 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 of the PDF to my phone before I go to the store so that I can easily reference it while shopping. If you sign up to receive emails from Costco.co.uk, they will send out an email that lets you know that the new coupon book is available online, usually the weekend before the new book starts. Since they now post the coupons on the Costco UK website, you can always download a copy of the latest coupon book from there; you can also find a link to it on the Warehouses webpage.
My favourite laundry item, Comfort Pure fabric conditioner, is on sale this month for £5.98 with VAT for a container that should last you through 142 loads of laundry. I team this up with a non-bio detergent for a irritant free wash combo. I like the Comfort Pure because it doesn’t have anything that will irritate my skin and just has a nice fresh scent, plus it leaves my clothes feeling lovely and soft. Also, I bought a bottle at my nearest Tesco store that does 42 washes and it was £3.47, which certainly seems quite a bit more than the price at Costco. Basically, at Costco I’m paying £0.04 per load, while at Tesco I’m paying £0.08 per load or twice as much. You know it killed me to buy this at Tesco but it was an emergency post-holiday laundry type of situation.
I also intend to buy the Vanish Oxi Action/Crystal White on our next trip to Costco. Since this isn’t an urgent laundry need, I put off buying it until I could get to Costco where you can get the 1.5 kg container for just £5.86 with VAT. I add this to all of my loads of whites and colours to keep my clothes looking clean and bright. I’m amazed at how well it works on getting out stains of all sorts too. Sometimes you have to make a bit of a paste and let it sit for a while, but I’ve had really great luck with it. And my whites have never stayed so dazzling.
If you’re looking to dress up your home with some new furniture, Costco has you covered with some great deals this month. There are three pages of furniture deals for the living room, dining room, and bedroom. There are some nice pieces shown in the coupon book, but I’m positive that there is even more good stuff waiting in the warehouse for you to buy. I’m always impressed with the solid quality furniture that Costco has and for such good prices. It always makes me wish that I had a need for new furniture.
If you have a baby in the house, you should take advantage of the deal on Huggies Baby Wipes this month. Right now you can buy three boxes for the price of two. Each box holds 6, 64 wipe containers, so you’ll end up with a stash of 18 containers with 1,152 wipes for £11.97 with VAT.
Dave’s favourite sweet cereal, Weetabix Minis in Chocolate, are discounted by 25%. You can get two, 500 gram boxes for £2.84, so I know we’ll be picking those up on our next shopping trip. I must admit that neither Dave nor I usually eat these like cereal, with milk and all, we normally just pop a few for a bit of an afternoon snack. They’re just sweet enough that you feel like you’re getting a treat and I’m pretty sure they must be healthier than a candy bar.
This is just a few items in this current coupon book that caught my eye. However, there are some other really nice deals, depending on what your needs are currently. For instance, if you’re shopping for a new pair of eye glasses, Costco is offering £40.00 off a second frame and lenses when you purchase new glasses through them. So, if you haven’t already done so, be sure to check out the latest coupon deals since you still have 10 shopping days left to take advantage of them.
