Costco US Coupon Book: June 12 – July 6, 2014

June 8th, 2014 · 4 Comments

The new Costco US coupon book starts on Thursday, June 12, and runs through the first week of July, until July 6.  In the coupon this month there’s a big $1,600.00 in warehouse savings and another $7,200.00 in online only deals.  There are so many items that I have written about before that have coupons this month.  It doesn’t seem to be so heavy on snacks and food items this month either, which is nice; I like it when they have a wide variety of product types represented in the coupons.  I’m really pleased that there are only a couple of coupons that require you to show the cashier your actual coupon book or the app on your phone.

This month I have uploaded the new Costco US Coupon Book PDF (or view it in the Google PDF viewer) , but you can also view the warehouse coupons on the Costco.com website.  If you weren’t aware, Costco has updated their coupon policy for “streamlined savings”.  Basically, that means that you won’t have to clip coupons (if you ever needed to for your location anyway) again, but instead you can just show the cashier the coupon book to redeem any offers marked with a blue arrow (which will make more sense when you see the coupon book).  Or, if that is too much for you to remember to bring, you can get the latest Costco smartphone app that will allow you to use the coupons in the app for in-store redemption.  So, if you’ve got a smartphone and haven’t downloaded the Costco app yet, this is the perfect reason to do so.  You can get the app for either iPhone or Android in their respective app stores.  The only coupons that you must have the app or coupon book to redeem are the ones with the blue arrow, but there are plenty of instant savings deals as well.  For many they didn’t have to clip coupons anyway, so this isn’t necessarily all that different.  The one big change is that Costco says that they will no longer have extra copies of the coupon book available at the warehouses.   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.  Or, just use the Costco smartphone app.  Lastly, you can also view them on the Costco.com website.  Costco has recently started posting the coupons online and through the app before they actually start (like just a few days after the old ones expire), so that makes it easier and nicer for planning too.

As usual, there’s a coupon for $70.00 off a set of new tires; this month the brand of choice is Michelin.  This is one of the coupons that will require you to show either your physical coupon book or the app.  You can also take advantage of this deal through Costco.com.  If you have some summer road trips planned for the next few months, this is the perfect opportunity to get a new set of tires.

For the parents out there, there are two deals for baby or toddler products that might interest you this month.  There’s a coupon for $5.00 off Kirkland Signature Supreme Diapers in sizes 1 – 6.  There’s also a coupon for $6.00 off Huggies Pull-Ups this month.  Unfortunately, there’s a limit of two on both of these deals.  But if you can’t even make it out to Costco, you can also get these deals through Costco.com.

There are a fair number of coupons for the household basics this month like toilet paper ($2.00 off Charmin), paper towels ($2.00 off Bounty) and Ziploc baggies of all sizes ($2.30 off), as well as a number of cleaning supplies.  They have my favourite laundry products on sale this month too:  All liquid laundry detergents are $3.00 off for a 195 ounce jug; I love the All Free and Clear because it is great for your clothes but also your sensitive skin.  They also have a $3.00 off coupon for Clorox2 in a 112.75 ounce jug.  Clorox2 is great at getting out stains and keeping your colors and whites bright.  I was always impressed with how well it worked on stains of any kind.

There is one thing that I haven’t written about before, but I definitely wanted to point out.  There’s a coupon for $3.0o off Vaseline Spray and Go Moisturizer.  At Costco you get 3, 6.5 ounce cans of the moisturizer.  I actually got a can of this recently and think it is great!  I have a different scent, the Cocoa that totally smells like Hawaiian Tropic, but it is the moisturizer that is the neat thing.  You spray it on, instead of it coming as a cream or lotion, and it has this great light feeling on your skin but leaves you completely moisturized and soft.  I have a little bit of a sensitive skin situation (thanks to eczema)  and this is one of the few moisturizers that I can use that actually works but doesn’t get my skin all irritated and annoyed.  The can has a continuous spray nozzle that disperses a very fine mist that you just rub in and you’re done.  Because of the light texture, it is perfect for summer and hot weather.

The really delicious Kirkland Signature Chocolate Chunk Cookies are on sale this month too for $1.50 off ($5.49 for a 24 cookie container after discount).  These are some of the best cookies you’ll find in a store, I think.  They have a great taste and these huge chunks of chocolate in them, and they don’t skimp on the chocolate chunks either.  Dave is a big fan of these, he likes the chocolate but also that they have a crunchy but still moist texture to them.   And if buying these makes you feel guilty, you can also get $2.00 off the big Kirkland Signature Caesar Salad with dressing, croutons, Parmesan and lemon wedges.  The salads really is a great weekday meal when it is hot out and you just really don’t want to cook anything.  Though, it is also excellent paired with a nice piece of fish or a chicken breast.  Or, you could get a rotisserie chicken at Costco to go with the salad for the ultimate no-cook meal.

I noticed that there’s also a coupon for the Charisma Down Alternative Pillows this month.  You can save $4.00 off a two pack of either jumbo or king sized pillows.  These pillows are great, especially for anyone that has an allergy problem with feather pillows.  They feel soft like a feather pillow, but aren’t feathers, though I do think they are a little more supportive than a regular down pillow.  One of the last times we were in the US we bought us a couple of these and have them on our guest bed here, as well as a couple on our bed, and they are great and seem to not smush down and get out of shape like regular non-down pillows.  I really like them.  And since there’s a limit of 5 on this offer, you should be able to get new pillows for all of your beds.

    Costco does not have to rely on other manufacturers to put their Kirkland brand, which usually has superior ingredients to the name brands, on sale. I’m not sure if they employ a nutritional adviser, but they should do something about the bisque soups they carry which have around 30g of fat per serving, and those servings are small. It wouldn”t surprise me if the average customer has a serving and a half or more. In addition, many of the spreads that are sold and given away as samples, are loaded with mayonnaise which, of course, is very fattening and high in cholesterol. I’m not asking Costco to be a Trader Joe’s, but as a retailer depending on member fees, there should be more of an effort to educate those members who are obese or overweight as to what should be ingested carefully.

    How great a marketing ploy would it be if they had weigh in’s and their own version of the “Biggest Loser” contest, where members over a certain weight would receive
    higher discounts based on the weight they kept off?

    I’m still not sure why there’s a delay of 11 days between the date the last coupon book expired and the new one starts. I went to Costco in NY last week and it seemed almost empty with no sales and very few free samples being offered.
    There are times when I’ve gone during the coupon sale and will find unadvertised specials on food but not this time. I’m kind of disappointed in the food items that are on sale in the US book. Instead of putting healthier foods on sale as a marketing tool by saying they want healthier customers, we get Kellogg’s Sugar Frosted Flakes! At least put Kellogg’s Raisin Bran on sale instead or the excellent Kirkland Cranberry bran cereal. I see some full of salt Dorito’s on sale, and the loaded with artificial ingredients and corn syrup while being excessively high in fat Nestle’s Drumsticks Ice Cream Cones. If you think there’s alot of junk in there, check the ingredients of the Skinny Cow and Klondike’s Bar ice creams.

    Perhaps if we started an email campaign for them to put healthier foods on sale or at least get some low fat varieties on the shelves. For example, if they’re going to sell Country Crock, Smart Balance or I Can’t Believe it’s not Butter, at least stock the low fat versions. Can’t they entice Turkey Hill or Breyer’s to allow them to sell their natural flavors of ice cream?

    Oh well, at least I can pick up my roasted chicken and Bounty’s Paper Towels on sale.

      @Talk Radio – Some of the issue with the coupons at least is that Costco doesn’t come up with those, the manufacturer’s do. I know at different Costco locations they have really been upping their healthy food choices, especially getting in more organic options. But it is hard for them because they have to make sure that when they stock something the vendor has the ability for production to keep up with demand of all of their customers. But it is weird that they don’t always stock the low fat versions of things alongside the regular version from the same company. That I have no explanation for at all.

      @ Talk Radio – as Kimberly says, the coupons are manufacturer offers, so they are not Costco’s call. I’ll grant there is little in this particular coupon book that entices me, but I also know that other routine offers that reappear in coupon books are very healthy choices, and I bear down on and exploit those. As it is, Costco does offer some reasonably healthy options (not the best, but decent) that are good for the money and occasionally they go on sale, but you can’t expect permanent coupons on those items because then it’s not a sale anymore. Are they the most healthy things Costco sells? No, but they are decent choices for the money.

      I don’t think of Costco as a gourmet hippie hang-out full of the healthiest of the healthy alternative blah-blah whatever. It’s a store that offers good prices on a variety of things for which there is a fairly wide demand, that intersperses some decent alternatives into the mix periodically. Like any store, it needs the throughput to stay around, which means selling to the masses. I like saving a buck too, but if Kirkland Cranberry Bran Cereal isn’t on a coupon that doesn’t mean that I would buy the Sugared Flakes instead because they are. Last month’s Kashi Crunch cereal on sale was a decent healthy alternative at a great price, so I hit those up and can skip worrying about Frosted Flakes. I know what I like, and I buy those things only, and if there is no coupon for them then only buy them regular prices till they are in the coupon book – and then stock up.

      BTW, the Costcos here in Austin are pretty packed no matter when I go, coupons or not. As I avoid crowds I find the best time to go is on my way home from work, or Saturday mornings the minute they open (I have my routine wired there and am in/out in 15 minutes). I have very little patience for lines at any cashier, and if there is a line I won’t buy refrigerated/frozen items at Costco because the wait can be so unpredictable and I don’t like getting home with half-thawed anything.
