The new Costco UK coupon book starts today, Monday, April 28, and runs for the next three weeks, through May 18. This new coupon book has savings of just £300.00 in it, which is less than a third of what the last coupon book offered. There are some good deals this month, and some of my favourite snacks and food items are having nice deals, as well. But there’s nothing really spectacular, to me. I was hoping to see a coupon for the Riemann P20 Sunscreen this month so I can get some for the summer sun and our May holiday. I guess I’ll just have to be content with the fact that Costco pretty much always has the best price on it anyway; you can buy it through Costco.co.uk for £7.10 less than at Boots.com, for instance.
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, clearly they do not require 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 I’m glad to see that it seems all Costco locations in the world are following suit. I do 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. Of course, they often hand you a copy of the coupon book when you walk in the store or have them sitting there so you can grab one at you enter. 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 Offers webpage.
If your tyres have had a hard year between the abnormally scorching summer heat and the cold winter, this might be the perfect time to get a new set of tyres, especially if you are planning any summer car travel. With this current coupon book, you can get some Costco vouchers back for buying two or four tyres. If you buy a full set of four tyres, you can get Costco vouchers for up to £100.00. Or, if you buy just two tyres, you can get Costco vouchers for up to £50.00. The amount of the vouchers depends on the size tyres that you buy, so check out the details in the coupon book on page 19 (right at the end of the book).
If you have a baby, or just really like to have a lot of wipes on hand, there’s deal for £3.00 off of the Kirkland Signature Baby Wipes this month. Each box at Costco has 9 packs of 100 wipes, a total of 900 wipes in each box. After the discount, you’ll pay £11.98 (with VAT) for the wipes, or just £0.01 per wipe. That seems like a really good deal to me. I read a lot of email from people looking for this coupon in the US, so I’m assuming that it is the same here and that there will be a lot of happy people stocking up on these at Costco this month. By the way, if you really want to seriously stock up on these, you totally can because the limit is 56 boxes! Yeah, you could have a stash of 50, 400 baby wipes.
They have coupons for three of my favourite lunchtime sandwich items, and two coupons for sweets or snacks that Dave and I love too. We will certainly be picking up all of these items on our next trip to Costco.
- Tine Jarlsberg Sliced Cheese, 600 grams; 20% off for a final price of £3.19. I just reviewed this in January actually. It is our favourite sandwich cheese because it goes well with any type of lunchmeat we are likely to want, plus it melts up beautifully for grilled cheese or tuna melts even, made with the tuna below.
- Wild Planet Albacore Tuna, 6, 142 gram cans; 30% off for a final price of £6.29. I reviewed this in January too. It is delicious and the nicest canned tuna! It is good straight from the can or made into tuna salad. They don’t add any liquid in the canning process so you don’t need to drain it even; the not draining it also means that you use less mayo when making your tuna salad.
- Walkers Sunbites, 4 pack of 6, 25 gram bags; 30% off for a final price of £3.84. I feel like I have reviewed these before because I buy them fairly often, however, I can’t find it. These are a nice, healthier alternative to the regular bag of crisps. They are great with a sandwich or as a snack with hummous.
- Walkers Shortbread Fingers, 1 kilogram; 20% off for a final price of £4.79. I love love love Walkers Shortbread. It’s buttery and sweet and just like I think shortbread should taste. I’ve been buying this since well before I came to the UK; I even have a collection of the tins in my US storage. I buy some of this every Christmastime but I might have to bend that rule a bit and buy some to kick off the summer this year too.
- Lucky Country Liquorice, 682 gram bags; 33% off for a final price of £2.40 (with VAT). I haven’t reviewed this in a few years, but we buy it all the time. Dave loves this liquorice and we have a bag of the black currant right now, of course, he also is a big fan of the strawberry. No matter what flavour, it is something that we have in the house quite often because he almost always gets a bag when we are at Costco.
I feel like a total tourist pointing this out and saying I want one. But Costco has the cutest bird feeders at Costco.co.uk right now for £19.99 and I might just have to get one…or two. There are two different designs: one that looks like a red telephone box, and one that looks like a blue police box. The blue police box looks just like the one in Dr. Who and is really cute. However, I’m a sucker for red stuff and love the telephone box and definitely want it. My flat has a terrace now, so I could actually use it for its intended purpose even.
