The new Costco UK coupon book starts on Monday and runs through the first first third of October, until the 11th. In this new coupon book there is a decent £570.00 in savings, which is less than the previous book but seems to have a pretty good selection of deals. There’s a nice variety of products for the most part, including things like televisions, toys, items for around the house, and even a safe. It doesn’t seem like there are a lot of food deals, though if you’re in the market for alcoholic beverages there is a pretty decent selection.
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.
If you’ve got a bit of Fall home improvement on your calendar, there are some deals in this latest bunch of coupons that could prove helpful. The most multi-purpose product on sale this month is a big 10 litre bucket of Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt Emulsion in Pure Brilliant White. You can save £5.00 for a final price of £29.98 with VAT. You can use this to give all of your interior walls and ceilings a nice fresh look. If you’re thinking of updating your bathroom a bit, there’s a great mirror in this coupon book too. You can save £30.00 off a Tavistock LUX Bathroom Mirror (final price £119.98 with VAT). The mirror is pretty fancy, as you might expect with that price, it has LED illumination, a heat demister pad, and an infrared sensor on the front for the light. I’ve seen this mirror in the stores and it is quite nice and I’d love to have one. I like the light, but really love the idea of something that keeps the mirror from fogging up after a hot shower. There’s also a coupon for £5.00 off a Klik Toilet Seat, for a price of £17.98 (with VAT). It’s got a quick release system and the very nice soft close. If you’re doing stuff around the house you might as install the Kidde Carbon Monoxide Alarm (£3.00 off with a final price of £8.38 with VAT). This is an important thing that everyone should have, and at such a low price there’s no reason not to have them in your house, keeping everyone safe.
Dave’s got allergies, and at various times of the year, Kleenex is an important item in our house. Regular Kleenex doesn’t really cut it after awhile though because they can really shred on a guy face; I think it is the beard stubble. Plus, after you’ve blown your nose a number of times too, your nose is all red and irritated too. So, I was thrilled when we tried the Kleenex Balsam Tissues the first time. They are bigger and sturdier than regular Kleenex, plus they have a microfine layer of calendula to provide a little bit of protective balm with each blow and rub of your nose. The balm really does manage to keep your nose from getting that red irritated look after too much blowing. I bought these just a couple of months ago but might consider buying another six pack since they’ve got a coupon this time. Each box has 80 tissues, so you get a decent amount of Kleenex, especially if you consider that you don’t have to get more than one tissue to blow your nose. You can save £1.20 off a 6 pack for a final price of £5.62 (including VAT). I only have two boxes left so I probably should get more in preparation for cold season which is sadly just around the corner.
There’s a coupon for something that I really want to mention because it’s not that great and probably not worth it, even with the coupon. You can save £2.00 off a Shedrain Umbrella; final price of £5.98 with VAT. I bought a two pack of these at Costco a number of years ago and thought they were great at first. And they weren’t great, they were really not great. The plasticky bits on the handles broke in half and made the umbrella unpleasant to hold. And on one of the other ones I bought the ribs bent and broke in the second windy rain storm. Living in such a rainy area I wish that Costco had better umbrellas, but these are not them.
Finally, there are a couple of great deals on steak mince and a leg of pork too. You can save £3.00 on the big packs of Kirkland Signature Scotch Steak Mince. I love these big packs of mince because you can come home and bag it up into smaller sizes and pop it in the freezer for burgers, meatloaf, chili, stuffed peppers, or whatever takes your fancy. The other deal is for £3.00 off a British Cut Leg of Pork that is trimmed to Costco specifications. We usually don’t get these because they’re just too big for us, but the rest of the pork at Costco is really great, so I imagine these are too. The size of the packages and the final price depends on the package you choose, obviously.
