The new Costco UK coupon book started on Monday, September 122, and runs for the first two weeks of October, until the 12th. This new coupon book has savings of £680.00 in it, which is a marginally more than the previous coupon book. There are some really great deals in this lastest book, better than the last one I think. There are some great deals on household things like small appliances and cleaning supplies, including of course, a deal for £10.00 off the microwave that we bought in August. Don’t you hate it when that happens? Sorry I’m late getting this posted but I was taking a long weekend break relaxing in the Alps.
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 as 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’m pretty sure that every time there is a coupon or deal on a carbon monoxide alarm that I mention it, just like fire extinguishers and smoke detectors. These are so simple to put up in your house, but can definitely save the lives of you and your family. With this book you can save £3.00 off a Kidde Carbon Monixide Alarm, including the three AA batteries it needs to operate. With that savings, you are paying just £8.38 with VAT for something that could definitely be worth so much more than that. Carbon monoxide is a tasteless, colourless, odourless, incredibly toxic gas that results from things like stoves, portable generators, fireplaces, water heaters, or cars running in areas where they don’t have enough oxygen because of poor installation, poor venting, or a malfunction. And the results of having carbon monoxide building up in your home can definitely kill your or send you to the hospital in a coma because by the time most people have noticed something is wrong it is too late. About 50 people in the UK die each year from carbon monoxide poisoning each year, and several thousand end up at A&E. So, isn’t the price of this, even without the £3.00 off, worth it?
Okay, so that’s my public service announcement for the day.
My favourite laundry items have deals in this book, which is great, and means I can replenish my stores. You can save £3.35 with this book on Fairy Non Bio Liquidtabs, which makes the box of 45 tabs £7.36 with VAT. When Costco offers a coupon or deal on these I always try to pick them up because the price is so good and of course, it’s not like they are going to go bad before I can use them. Regularly, the price is very competitive at Costco but with a coupon it is spectacular. I like the ease of use of the liquitabs and find them much easier to store in my limited storage space too. My other favourite laundry item with a deal is Vanish, either the regular or the Crystal White. You can save £2.00 off the Vanish OxiAction in a 2.4 kg tub for a final price of £7.18 with VAT. Or, you can save £2.00 off the 1.5 kg canister of OxiAction Crystal White, for a final price of £5.86 with VAT. I use them both for my laundry to keep my colours and my whites looking great. The Crystal White is so good at keeping our white towels and sheets super white, but also works its magic on white socks which can get so grungy looking without something like this to give them that little extra bit of help.
There’s a great coupon for £2.00 off a three pack of the Vaseline Spray and Go body moisturizer. I wrote about this on my other blog after I received a can of it in my May Glossybox and I think it is great and will definitely be picking this up at Costco. This sprays right on your skin, in a continuous spray like deodorant or hair spray, and gives your skin the perfect amount of moisturizing but without feeling heavy or even noticeable at all. I was dubious at first but after using it, I’m totally hooked. This was especially nice for during the summer when it’s already hot out and you don’t really want to have some heavy layer of lotion on your skin but do need something to keep it healthy looking. But I’m thinking it will keep my skin from ever even thinking about getting dry this winter too. I wish that they had the other two varieties – aloe and oat extract – at Costco because the Cocoa variety is a bit summery smelling. After the £2.00 off, you’ll pay £9.58 with VAT for the 3, 190 ml cans. And that is a great bargain. It’s about £4 -5.00 everywhere else, per can, so it’s like you are getting a free can of this by picking it at Costco.
So, those are just a couple of my highlights for the new Costco UK coupon book, but there are definitely other great deals too. And don’t forget to check out the special deals going on now at Costco.co.uk. They have all kinds of things that you won’t necessarily find in the stores, or maybe don’t want to get in the store because you’d have to get it home and into your house somehow, instead of having them deliver it. I mean, if you are looking at furniture or appliances it would be crazy to not at least look online because then you’re not moving something like a big, heavy refrigerator because they are doing it for you.
