The new Costco UK coupon book started on Monday, June 30, and runs through July 20. I don’t know how I skipped over getting this up last weekend, I think I got my ending dates mixed up for the UK and US coupon books. Sorry! This new coupon book has savings of just £500.00 in it, which is a bit less than the last coupon book offered. Somehow this coupon book seems a little more ‘meh’ than the last couple, but hopefully you’ll be able to find a few deals that pique your interest.
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 and 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.
I’ll be honest, there’s really not a whole lot in this recent bunch of coupons that I’m excited about. As always there are a few things that I might consider getting, but really it is like two this time, instead of the usual handful of deals that I’m interested to see. So that is kind of a bummer, but I’m hoping that the Costco coupon book is just enjoying the lovely summer and will be back with all the good deals soon.
I will say that the one coupon that I might take advantage of, and the one I most likely should not, is for Lindt Lindor Truffles. You get an assortment of four, 200 gram packages in four different flavours. The coupon is for £2.00 off, so the final price is just £9.58 with VAT. At that price you’ll be paying just £2.40 per package, which is at least £1.00 less than you are likely to find these anyplace else. So, that’s a really good deal. The only thing that might put me off is the assortment situation in Milk Chocolate, Strawberry and Cream, Stracciatella, and Assorted. I love love love the milk and white chocolate truffles but I’m not sure either Dave or I would be a big fan of the ones with strawberry. However, I do like that these are a great way to have a little chocolate treat without having too much temptation since they are individually wrapped.
If you’re looking for some small, shoe box sized storage, the Iris 5 Litre Shoe Boxes are a great solution. At Costco you get a pack of 14 of the boxes with lids, made from a nice sturdy clear plastic for £17.98 with VAT (after £5.00 off). These are great for all kinds of storage, of things like craft supplies, office items, toys, tools, or even, shoes. I’m not a fan of putting my shoes in plastic boxes like this though because I don’t think they have the proper ventilation that you need for shoes. However, if they are out of season or special occasion shoes and you just want a way to stack them or keep them dust free, then these would be a great solution. I have also used these to organize my kitchen cabinets by putting all of my items for a specific type of cooking in one so that it’s all together if I want to do some baking, for example.
The other thing that I think seems like a good deal is the Magna Cart Folding Handcart for £3.00 off; final price of £14.38 with VAT. I blame my mom for my abnormal attraction to tools and things like this. She would totally be buying one of these if she were here. This is a nice sturdy looking cart that can carry up to 68kg of anything that you can stack on its little platform. Plus, it folds up for easy storage or transportation. These would be perfect for moving your tools if you are in a profession like that. I can’t believe the price is so reasonable really because I always thought these little carts cost more. I wish I had a need for one because I totally want one!
