Costco Coupon Book – July 17 – August 3, 2008

July 17th, 2008 · 12 Comments

Costco Coupon Book - July 17 - August 3, 2008Get ready to save some more money at Costco over the next two weeks because the Costco coupon book is out now.  As always, there is a nice, wide variety of coupons to help you save a little more money on everything from computers to Ziploc bags.  Overall there are 89 coupons with $600 in store savings, plus another $3,000 worth of coupons.

Food & Beverages:

There are 17 coupons for food or beverage items, and some of them are for my favorite things from Costco.

  • Various Beverages – There are coupons for Gatorade, Coke products, Sunny D, pomegranate juice from Langers, Glaceau VitaminWater, Pepsi products, Starbucks Frappuccino drinks, and Perrier with values of $2 – $3 off.  So, that’s a nice variety of beverages that you can pick up at a discount.  Some of these have limits on how many you can get with the coupon, so you might not be able to stock up that much.
  • Stretch Island Fruit Leather –  We tried this at one of the sample stations last week or the week before.  They weren’t bad, actually better than I had expected.  I guess I remember that nasty, vaguely plasticy stuff from when I was a kid.  $3.00 off.
  • Haagen-Dazs Vanilla Almond Bars – Okay, these may be the best tasting ice cream treat you could ever put in your freezer.  Seriously.  I love these ice cream bars and I’m not even all that into ice cream bars.  There’s just something about the really good ice cream covered by the perfect chocolate and almond coating.  Sadly, there is a two item limit on these but you do get $3.00 off each of your boxes.
  • Pasta Prima Spinach and Mozzarella Ravioli – From the freezer section comes this really nice pasta choice.  What’s great is that you can always have some nice ravioli on hand to have for a side dish or as a main course when you’re feeling less like cooking.  This pasta is one of the few things that the sample in the store won’t be as good as it will be when you make it at home.  $2.50 off.
  • Dannon Activia Variety Pack – Since I raved about the ice cream bars, I feel it necessary to mention that there is a coupon for something healthy too.  I’m not over the moon for the Activia probiotic yogurts, but if it really helps to make you healthier it’s worth it.  They are kind of tiny at just 4 ounces each, so that is almost definitely smaller than your regular yogurt container.  I think these make for a nice afternoon snack maybe but not a replacement for breakfast.  $3.00 off.

Household Items:

Even though it isn’t spring cleaning season, Costco is giving you the chance to stock up on all kinds of cleaning supplies, as well as household staples like toilet paper an paper towels.

  • Ziploc Bags – I almost always use these coupons because I can constantly find a way to use baggies.  They’re great for food but they’re also good for storing other things that you want to keep together.  They’re great for keeping power cords and chargers with the right electronics item, for instance.  I also like them for storing papers together, like receipts.  And of course, with all the crazy rules for packing when flying now, they can sure make that whole process go smoother.  Okay, enough about my affection for the Ziploc bag. $2.00 off.
  • Laundry Necessities – Costco’s got you covered for keeping your clothes fresh and clean.  Tide, Downy, and Bounce…what more could you need?  And best of all, there’s no item limit for any of these; well, just how much storage space you have at home, I guess.  $1.50 – $2.00 off.
  • Oxi Clean – I must admit, I actually own some of this stuff.  I wasn’t swayed by the infomercial guy and his loud, annoying voice; I had a friend tell me it worked and was great for laundry and fun things like cleaning grout.  Who wouldn’t want to buy something that can do all of that?  I was pretty amazed at how well it worked to get a nasty stain out of a white shirt and then it also worked miracles on my grout.  $3.00 off.
  • Swiffer – I love these for dusting!  It actually picks the dust up instead of shuttling it from surface to surface on your dust cloth and throwing it about in the air.  I don’t know what kind of magic fibers it is made of but I’m glad someone came up with this idea. They’re as brilliant and the Post-It note guy.  I’ve also used the Swiffer wet mop thing.  It was really convenient but a little too small for my kitchen, however, it would be perfect for cleaning your bathroom floors.  $2.50 off.

Health & Beauty:You can have the cleanest teeth in the neighborhood and all at a nice discount with these coupons!  There are also coupons for vitamins, lotion, shampoo, and even Q-Tips.

  • Oral Hygiene -Seriously, there are 7 different coupons for toothpaste, toothbrushes and mouthwash.  The biggest bargain might be the $5.00 off you can get on an 8 pack of Colgate 360 toothbrushes.  There’s also a coupon for $7.00 off Crest whitening strips.  Plus, coupons for Listerine, toothpaste from either Crest or Colgate, and an Oral-B rechargeable toothbrush and toothbrush heads.  But where’s the dental floss?
  • Vitamins & Supplements – There are coupons for both Nature Made vitamins ($3.00 off) and supplements such as CoQ10 and Sam-e ($8.00 off).  You can also get some Calcium, Omega-3, or Gummy Vites for your kids too and they’re shaped like little bears. Cute and $2.00 off.
  • Q-Tips – Sure, there are a million uses for cotton swabs for delicate cleaning tasks both in the bathroom and out.  But you must be aware that there are 1,750 Q-Tips in this package!  No matter how you look at it, that’s a lot of cotton swabs.  We’re still working on finishing up the bulk pack that we got years and years ago (I would say how many but you would not believe me and it would just be embarrassing).  $2.00 off.


There are several coupons for all of those back to school electronics needs like computers and printers.  There’s also a nice coupon for a big 42″ HDTV.  The majority of these coupons are for only though.

  • Computer & Printer – Costco currently has a nice combo deal going with a Toshiba L305 and a Xerox Phaser 6125N (a network ready color laser printer).  If you buy both online at you can get both for just $879.98, for a savings of $250.00.  If you buy each separately you only receive $80 off of the computer for a price of $699.99 and $100 off of the printer for a price of $249.99.  Click here for more information at
  • AOC Envision 42″ 1080p HDTV – Everyone wants a nice flat, HDTV capable television and if you can save $100,  it makes it even better.  You can get this one at for $899.99.  Interstingly, when you actually go to the website, this television is $150 off for a price of just $849.99.  And that does include shipping and handling.  I’ve got to say, it is nice having the UPS guy lug your large television into your house, rather than having to do it yourself.  Click here to view the information for this deal online.

Obviously, I didn’t cover all 89 coupons because there are just too many good deals in this coupon book.  So, be sure to check out all of the other good deals.  And don’t forget the savings start today (July 17) and end on August 3rd.

    I’m not positive about the next date, however, I know that it will be coming out sometime in September because they have a coupon book that comes out then every year. I only know this because they always have a buy one, get one free on their candy bars that we use to get Halloween candy and it’s always at least a month before….takes a lot of willpower. :-)

    Does anyone know when the next coupon book is due out?

  4. 4 Kimberly // 2008.08.03 at 2:29 pm

    They usually have the coupon books at the checkouts to scan for people that forgot them. And since the coupon for the ravioli has no item limit, I certainly think they’d be willing to scan it for you.

    I bought the Spinach + Mozzarella ravioli a few days ago with the coupon and they were amazing! I want to buy another bag while the coupon is out . . . does anyone know how I can get another copy of the coupon? Will they have the book in store? Can I mention the coupon and get the savings?

  6. 6 Cynthia // 2008.07.26 at 1:38 pm

    Thanks a bunch for the info. I will call them.

    There are some coupons that every customer gets and then there are some coupons that are only sent to the Executive members. The book mentioned above should be sent to all members. You can also tell that these are sent to everyone because they will display information on the price signs for the items that are on sale with these coupons and they definitely don’t do that with the Executive member only coupons.

    I would most certainly call Costco headquarters about this issue. However, my guess is that since you only recently signed up, you weren’t included on the mailing list for these. But I’m only speculating on that.

    You can go to the Customer Service page on the website to see the phone numbers you can use to contact them, or a link to fill out a form online with your question.

    Does every Costco member get the coupons? I became a member in early June and have not recd. any coupons. I went to the store yesterday and the guy at the customer service desk said that only 10% of Costco members receive those. I am going to call Costco CS and complain on Monday. Is this true?

    Unfortunately, there was a tire coupon, $60.00 off 4 tires, in the Summer coupon book, but it expired at the end of June. There isn’t a tire coupon in the July – August coupon book either.

    Hi, does anyone know if the current costco coupon book contains the tire coupon? I need new tires and last time I bought them at Costco during their coupon sale and they were a great bargain.

    Possibly you’re saying that to the wrong person. :-) I practically live at Costco & most of the time it is my most exciting outing of the week. Sad, but true.

    I just opened my coupon book today and was very excited by the variety of coupons. This doesn’t say a whole lot about my social life, does it?
