The new Costco UK coupon book starts on Monday and runs through the first week of August, the 9th. In this new coupon book there is a whopping £850.00 in savings, which is almost double the previous book. This is the most savings value in a coupon book in quite some time. There seem to be just a lot of coupons too, not just a few for really big amounts off of things. I think there’s a good variety too, not just coupons concentrated on one particular area, like food or household supplies.
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, 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 you an email to let you know when 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 or you can find a link to it on the Warehouse Offers webpage.
I am thrilled to see the coupon for Finish Quantum with Powerball Tablets. I’m running low and was tempted to get some last time we were at Costco but decided that I would wait to see if they’d have a coupon and my patience paid off it seems. You can get £2.10 off a two pack of 45 tablets each, making the final price £11.38 with VAT. I love the Finish Quantum tablets because they do a great job cleaning my dishes and my glasses always look crystal clear and shiny. It also seems to be really good at keeping the plastic containers, like my Snapware (from Costco) clean too even if I’ve had something in it like spaghetti with tomato sauce. The price at Costco, even without the discount, is excellent but with the discount it is a total bargain. At other stores you will pay £8 – 16.00 for just a single pack of 45 tablets, but at Costco you’re paying just £5.69 (after the discount) per 45 tablets. At some of the stores, it is less expensive to buy the two pack at Costco, than just a single pack. So if you love this as much as I do, Costco is the place to buy it.
If you like to make your own tomato soup or pasta sauce, but don’t feel like messing around with it all day, passata is a great shortcut. There’s a coupon for £1.00 off a three pack of 680 gram bottles of Cirio Passata Rustica; final price of £1.99. I use passata all the time to make really quick and fuss free tomato soup because it is the perfect base, instantly out of the bottle, and then I can add whatever spices and such that I want. Plus, it is great right out of the bottle for a pizza topping. The rustica version is thicker than the really finely sieved passatas but still works well for soups and sauces, and probably is better for making a nice thick pasta sauce. It is something that is great to keep on hand because it can be used in so many different ways, though my favourite is soup. It makes a perfect lunchtime soup when paired with a grilled cheese sandwich and is so quick to throw together too, and it always tastes much better than the tomato soup in a can. After the discount each 680 gram bottle of this is just £0.66, which is less than you’ll pay for other similar products at various supermarkets.
I feel I must mention that my favourite dental hygiene combo also has coupons in this book. You can get £2.80 off a four pack of 75ml tubes of Oral-B ProExpert Toothpaste. The final price ends up being just £6.82 with VAT, or £1.71 per tube. This is my favourite toothpaste because it really does a great job of keeping your teeth clean with that fresh from the dentist feel. I stock up on this when they have a coupon at Costco because it does offer a savings over other places. I’ll definitely be picking up a couple of four packs on our next trip to Costco. My other dental hygiene must-buy at Costco is the Oral-B Advantage Toothbrushes. You can get a package of eight toothbrushes for £8.62 (with VAT) after the discount of £2.80. I love the criss cross bristles and think they do an excellent job on my teeth and keeps them in respectable shape between dentist visits. I also think it is good that Costco only stocks the medium and soft versions because I know dentists really don’t want you to use the firm ones. I change my toothbrushes a lot so buying this big package at Costco is the perfect solution for me. At other stores, a single toothbrush can be £2.00, at least, so getting these for just £1.08 per toothbrush is half of what I’d normally have to pay at other places. That’s a great deal!
If you’re tired or your old kettle and toaster, now is the perfect time to update because Costco has a coupon for £7.50 off
a combo deal either a toaster or a kettle from Dualit. You can get a 1.5 litre kettle OR a four slice toaster for £50.98 (including VAT) after the discount. The kettle and toaster are a smart looking matched set with brushed stainless steel and highlights of colours exclusive to Costco (in the book they show red and black). At Amazon a 1 litre kettle is £44.98 and for the 1.5 litre kettle you’ll be paying a shocking £62.98 and that is for just the kettle! And the toaster is a whopping £78.49. So you could pay £50.98 £101.96 at Costco or £141.47 at Amazon, that’s a difference of £39.51. Whoa! That seriously covers a year of your Costco membership and then some. And that kind of deal is exactly why I keep shopping at Costco. [Updated 2015.07.24 because I screwed up and thought that the coupon was for BOTH but it’s for either the kettle or the toaster, but still a good deal, just not quite as good. Sorry for the mistake!]
