The new Costco UK coupon book starts on Monday and runs through the end of August, the 30th. In this new coupon book there is a respectable £500.00 in savings, while it is less than the last book it really seems like there’s more savings. I’m guessing that the difference is that there’s not just a few items with really big savings, but a number of smaller discounts on a larger selection of items. There are two special sections in this new coupon book that make it even more interesting. One section is filled with back to school items, and the other section is filled with organic, gluten free, and healthy living foods.
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.
The Back to School section of this coupon book has ten different coupons, though to be fair one of those is for four different items, and they’re all things that will make your school supply shopping much less expensive. Well, except for the safe because I’m not really sure how a safe is a back to school shopping item, but it is £20.00 off. I like office/school supplies so I have actually bought a number of these. My favourite item in this special section is definitely the Scotch Precision Scissors three pack. With the deal you will get £1.93 off for a final price of just £6.91 with VAT. That is an incredible deal and these scissors are awesome. I’ve written about these a number of times (when there are coupons) since I bought my pack at Costco because they are so wonderful. They make cutting through things, even the dangerous plastic packaging that so many items come in now, a breeze and they are comfortable in your hand too. The price at Costco is less than you’ll pay for just a single pair at every other retailer that I’ve checked too.
If you’re into organization and labelling, then you will be thrilled to see the coupon for the Brother labelling machines; either £2.25 or £7.50 off depending on which one you choose. I like the smaller, hand-held PT-H101C labeller and have one of the previous versions. They are perfect for making quick labels for anything you can think of and more. I use it to label things in my kitchen, office supplies, file folders, mailing labels for packages, storage boxes, and about a million other things. I love it! It is so easy to use and you can quickly change the font or size of the font depending on your labelling needs, but you always get a very readable label. This greatly appeals to my fussy, organized side.
In the special Organic and Gluten Free section, there are 14 coupons in all. There’s also a selection of eighteen items that are just highlighted because of their organic and healthy living-ness but they aren’t really coupons, just always good deals. That is a whole lot of healthy savings, in any case. There are a number of really great deals, including a couple for half half. I love the Garofalo Organic Spaghetti, which happens to be one of the half off coupons. With these deals you can get a pack of 8, 500 gram packages of spaghetti for just £3.34. That is a spectacular deal when you consider that normally you would pay somewhere between £1.05 and £2.80 for just a single 500 gram package of organic spaghetti at other supermarkets. It’s a good deal when compared against non-organic spaghetti too actually. Plus, it is a really nice pasta. This is definitely a coupon that I will be taking advantage of because I always like to have a stock of spaghetti and have been pretty low lately, but held off on getting some last weekend when we were at Costco, thankfully.
There’s another organic product with a coupon that I’ve never tried before, but immediately caught my eye: Luke’s Organic Cheddar Clouds. I like cheese and I like clouds, so it sounds like something I need to try. In reality they are white cheddar cheese puffs that have a deal for £1.50 off the 510 gram bag, for a final price of £4.54 with VAT. I’ve never heard of these before but I will definitely be buying them on my next trip to Costco.
Even though it is a bit tricky that they aren’t coupons, I’m still glad that Costco pointed out some of the other great products that they stock that are organic and/or gluten free because it is sometimes really easy to overlook things when you’re in the store. However, some of the non-coupon items that they list are things that we love, so hopefully everyone else who might have missed them will make it a point to give them a try now. My favourite item that they are drawing attention to is probably the Kirkland Signature Organic Lemonade that is £5.99 for 2, 2.84 litre bottles. It is deliciousness from just a few simple ingredients: filtered water, organic lemon juice from concentrate, organic sugar, and organic lemon flavour. It tastes like summer in a beverage.
If you decided that you couldn’t splash out for the Duolit kettle in the last coupon book, there’s another one available in this book that is maybe more in line with what you were hoping to spend. There’s a deal for £5.00 off a Morphy Richards Brita Kettle, which makes it just £29.98 with VAT. The kettle is 1.5 litres and does the normal kettle thing with boil dry protection and a removable limescale filter, however, this one also has a Brita filter to filter your water as you boil it. And it looks nice while doing it with a brushed stainless steel body with black accents. I didn’t even know that Brita filters were something they added to kettles, but it is a brilliant idea.
Honestly, there’s a bunch of other stuff in this coupon book that you’ll probably want to consider picking up, not even counting the entire section where they highlight some of the great deals to be found at Costco.co.uk. I was trying to decide what to write about but there’s just too much I want to point out. They’ve even got two coupons for tile in this book! Seriously, there are excellent deals this month, so be sure to look through the book carefully before your next trip to Costco.
