The new Costco UK coupon book starts on Monday and runs most of the month of September, until the 20th. In this new coupon book there is a respectable £600.00 in savings, while it is more than the last book, though I still think the last coupon book seemed a bit better. It seems like Costco is trying to send us all a hidden message this month: clean it up! There are cleaning supplies for keeping yourself, your laundry, and your dishes clean.
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 didn’t find a ton of stuff in this latest coupon book to get excited about, but there are always a few things that catch my attention. Luckily, there’s only one thing in here that I have bought recently. A couple of weeks ago I was running low on my Kirkland Signature body wash, and they were out of it in our warehouse so I picked up the SebaMed body wash (review coming soon I think) but now they’ve got a coupon for £2.00 off the body wash and the body lotion (£9.58 and £7.18 with VAT). I haven’t tried this yet, but it gets good reviews online so I’m curious to try it. It is made with olive oil apparently, but also had the dreaded sodium laureth sulfate which is often considered a big skin irritant. Aside from olive oil, it seems like the rest of the ingredients are just chemicals, and not the skin friendly ones either. Overall the ingredients in the KS body wash seem more skin considerate, so if I can get that then I will most likely take the SebaMed back.
So, I have a bit of a confession to make: I don’t own an iron. For the most part this isn’t a big deal because anything that needs to be ironed I’ve generally sent out to the cleaners and let them do the ironing, except for sheets and pillowcases. Lately, I’ve had a few things that I just wanted to quickly iron myself like my sheets, so I’ve thought maybe I should go ahead and get an iron. Because of my rheumatoid arthritis my hands aren’t really up for lots of ironing though, of course, the Morphy Richards Comfi Grip Iron in the new coupon books might prove to be hand friendly enough for me. The new coupon book has a deal for £5.00 off the iron, which makes it a quite reasonable £29.98 with VAT, and that’s about £10.00 less than you’ll find it anywhere else. The reviews are pretty good, the only thing that bothers me is that a few people say it is heavy. So hopefully they’ll have this unboxed at Costco so that I can try it out and also see what makes the handle so comfortable.
Recently, Costco UK locations have been improving their selection of frozen fruits, now if they could just get a nice selection of vegetables too. I got the delicious frozen mango on June and now it seems that they are adding the delicious Kirkland Signature Whole Blueberries to the mix too. At least at our location they haven’t had these before. Now they’ll not only have these but they’re £2.00 off with the new coupons too. The big 2.27 kg/5 lb bag will be just £7.29 after the discount and that is a great deal. The berries are individually quick frozen so that they keep all of their berry goodness and aren’t just a big clump in the bag. Plus, there are no preservatives, just all of the good stuff naturally in blueberries. These are great with yogurt, smoothies, or granola but they’re also delicious in hot cereals too.
If you’re in the market for new tyres, there’s a deal this month to get Costco shopping vouchers valued at £10 – £100 when you buy Michelin tyres. If you get two Michelin tyres you can get a voucher for £10, £30, or £50 depending on the size of the tyres. If you buy a full set of four Michelin tyres you can get a voucher for £30, £70, or £100 depending on the size of tyres. For all of the information, and to take advantage of this deal, just visit the Tyre Centre at your local Costco.
For me there’s not much that makes me go “woot” in this new coupon book, but hopefully these coupons are more appealing to everyone else.
