It’s the last coupon book of the year for Costco UK! The new Costco UK coupon book starts on Monday, December 15, and runs until the end of the year, December 31. This new coupon book has just a wee £200.00 in savings, which is clearly less than a normal coupon book, but this one only lasts two weeks too. There are just 39 coupons in this abbreviated book, but hopefully there’s something you can find that’s just right for you. There seem to be a lot of coupons for wine and beer, 12 coupons in all, I guess that’s so you can get ready for New Year’s Eve.
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.
As I mentioned, there are 12 coupons for beer, wine and other assorted alcoholic beverages with discounts of £1.50 to £5.00. So, if you’re planning a New Year’s Even party or holiday party of any kind, this would be a great time to save a bit of money on your festive beverages. If you were thinking of having fancy mixed drinks at your festive celebrations, there’s also a Ninja Mega Kitchen System blender and food processor that might be able to help you out with everything but adding the little umbrella. You can get the Ninja for £30.00 off for a final price of £119.98 (with VAT).
There are a couple of things that caught my attention though. Dave loves M&Ms, so whenever there is a coupon we pick some up. M&Ms seem really high at the regular supermarkets, so they’re always a much better deal at Costco, but especially so when there is a coupon. You can get £1.25 off a 1 kilo bag of Peanut M&Ms, that means that they’ll be just £4.48 (with VAT). At regular supermarkets and retailers, you’ll pay from £1.50 to £2.00 for a small 165 gram bag, which I’m sure I don’t have to point out is much much more than you’ll be paying at Costco.
There’s a£1.50 off coupon for Honest Earth All Natural Creamy Mashed Potatoes for a final price of £3.49. Yes, these are instant mashed potatoes. But they’ve really come a long way with these because they taste like potatoes and have a great fluffy texture too. The potatoes are really all natural and pretty much just what they say: dried potatoes, butter, and sea salt. So you don’t have to be worried about what kind of crazy stuff you are eating either. We’ve been buying these for a few years now and really like to keep them on hand. If you make them using milk and butter, as the instructions suggest, they are really delicious and creamy. You get 8 packets in the box and each packet makes enough for 4 to 6 decent servings. Sometimes I use them to thicken up soup too and it is perfect for that because you can get a creamy texture without actually using cream.
The last coupon I’m going to mention is for Duracell batteries which usually are an imperative at holiday time for all of the battery operated gifts. I don’t know if that is still the case, but figured I should mention these anyway. You can get £2.13 off a 16 pack of AAA batteries for a final price of £7.63 (with VAT). Or, you can get £2.75 off a 20 pack of AA batteries for a final price of £9.88 (with VAT).
