Costco Coupon Book for January 2009

Costco Coupon Book for January 2009

Just in time for the New Year, and for your budget to recover from the holidays, Costco’s latest coupon book goes into effect.  This coupon book covers 20 days in January only, from the 5th through the 25th, but there are a lot of great deals covered in here.  My favorite is the $10.00 off of TurboTax Premier (but more on that below) because it’s beginning to look a lot like tax season.  And if you made a New Year’s resolution to get fit and healthy in 2009, Costco’s got your back with lots of different coupons.  Overall, there is $1,400.00 in savings across 100 coupons and 5 special offers on various Costco services, as well as $3,000.00 in savings at

Food & Beverages: There are 23 coupons I would include in this category; several for things that appear to be new to the Costco lineup.  But there are also a few favorites.  The coupons cover everything from chocolate (like you want any more of that) to cereal to coffee to meat.

  • Costco Take and Bake 5 Cheese Pizza – I’m a big fan of the Costco pizzas and love it when they provide a coupon.  This makes a great quick, low-hassle meal on Sunday (our preferred Costco shopping day) afternoon.  They’re a nice pizza because they have a good topping to sauce ratio and always end up with a nice crunchy crust.  Oh yeah, and they don’t take that long to prepare.  The downfall is that it is large, so it’s a little hard to store in the fridge if you’re wanting it for a later time.  $3.00 off; one item limit.
  • Multi-Grain Cheerios – This looks like a new item for Costco, or at least I don’t recall seeing it before in the cereal aisle.  There is a variety of 5 whole grains that make up this cereal, so that sounds nice and healthy.  Plus, each serving has only 110 calories and provides 100% of 10 vitamins and minerals.  Oh yeah, that is definitely on the healthy list.  So, if you’re looking for a healthy cereal, you might want to give this one a try.  $2.25 off.
  • Talking Rain Sparkling ICE – This is another item that looks like it might be a new addition to Costco.  If you’re like me, you probably don’t know what this beverage is, so here’s a description from their website:  “combines mountain spring water, fruit juice, vitamins, and nutrients to create a tasty, lightly carbonated, liquid refreshment in assorted juicy flavors”.  So, basically it’s a carbonated water drink with some vitamins added and it comes in various fruity flavors.  It looks like the pack at Costco has 18, 17 ounce bottles in three difference flavors – orange mango, black raspberry, and kiwi strawberry.  Aside from the healthy vitamins and nutrients, each serving is 3% fruit juice and only 5 calories.  So, I guess if you’re not someone that likes to drink plain water from the tap, this is a good alternative to keep you hydrated.  $2.50 off.

Household Items: There are great coupons for the staples that you probably pick up at Costco, like Kleenex, toilet paper, paper towels, dish detergent, and laundry soap.  There’s also a coupon for tires, that I’ll include here because it doesn’t really fit in my other categories.

  • TurboTax – We’ve been using TurboTax to complete our taxes for years (over 12, I think).  We tried another software program one year and decided that it totally paled in comparison.  With TurboTax they make it easy to do your taxes because they have an easy to understand question-and-answer interview process that you work through and they put the correct information into the necessary forms.  Or, if you want, you can fill in the forms manually, or do a combination of manual and automatic.  It’s still going to take some time but way less than it might if you were just wading through all the forms yourself.  Plus, they’ll help you find deductions that you might not have thought of.  The other thing that I really like is that they’ll help you figure out the appropriate dollar amount for any donations of items that you might have made, like clothes, books, or household items.  This really amazed us the first year we used it because the amounts that they list were much higher than we would have put on our stuff; which helps for your deduction, obviously.  Also, if you use Quicken for your financial software it can pull some information from there, speeding up the process even more.  Go TurboTax!  This coupon is good on the whole variety of TurboTax versions: Premier with State, Home and Business, Deluxe with State, or Deluxe No State.  $10.00 off.
  • Set of 4 Michelin Tires – This is a great coupon and even better if you missed the deal that they were having on tires from November to December.  You can use the Costco online tire center to see what kind of Michelin tires work for your car.  You can also use the tire center website to find out more information about the Costco warranty and their lifetime services such as inflation pressure checks, tire balancing, tire rotations, as well as flat repairs.  Costco also uses nitrogen to inflate their tires which is supposed to lessen the tire wear and increase your fuel efficiency (this happens because the nitrogen maintains pressure better than regular compressed air).  $70.00 off.
  • Swiffer Products – I’ve probably written about these before because I’m a fan of the Swiffer stuff, especially for dusting.  This coupon covers the Swiffer Sweeper Starter Kit, Dry Refills, Wet Refills, and Dusters.  I have used all of these at one point or another but I really think my favorite is the dusters.  They work so well to keep the dust on the cloth instead of just being pushed around on the table or thrown into the air.  Of course, that said, if you have a room with a hard surface, that isn’t too large, the wet Swiffer thing is a quick way to clean the floor.  I’ve found that if your space is very large though, you will need to go through multiple Swiffers to clean the whole surface.  Of course, it does still beat the hassle of mop and bucket.  My only Swiffer complaint is that the handle on the sweeper is a little small around to be comfortable for my big hand; it’s too narrow and causes my hand to cramp when I’m cleaning a large amount of flooring.  $2.50 off; 4 item limit.

Electronics: As usual, and despite all of the holiday sales, there are coupons for televisions, cameras, and computers.  They’re the usual good deals and definitely worth a look if you are trying to find a deal on a big LCD HDTV to watch the Super Bowl on.

  • Panasonic Blu-Ray DVD Player – If you didn’t get one of these for Christmas, now might be the time to buy your own.  With this $50 off coupon the cost is probably well below that of the Sony player too.  I can’t remember how much this one was the last time I looked at these but I think it might have been around $175 (but don’t hold me to that).  We’ve been toying with the idea of getting a Blu-Ray player and this definitely might make it the perfect time to get one.  Not to mention, have you noticed the large amount of Blu-Ray DVDs that Costco has started to carry?  Strangely, they say that this coupon is also good at, however, I can’t actually find this DVD player on their site.  Maybe they’re waiting until Monday to list it for some reason.  $50.00 off.

Health & Beauty: A fair amount of exercise gear and equipment (5 coupons in all) and even a coupon for the Smart For Life meals (think NutriSystem).  Of course, there are also coupons for the usual toothpaste and toothbrushes, facial skin care, and Huggies diapers.  And, of course, vitamins.

  • Garmin Forerunner 50 Bundle – I don’t have one of these and have never even tried it out but I think it is a really great idea if you’re trying to be more active.  This combines a podometer and heart rate monitor with the watch.  The coolest feature though is that it tracks your workout information, which it will wirelessly upload to your computer to analyze your fitness progress.  It’s just a brilliant idea!  This could really make your training more effective.  I also like the wireless heart rate monitor because that will allow you to make sure that you are working out in your target range to get the most out of your workout time.  This is good for running, walking (including on a treadmill), and even cycling.  You can only take advantage of this deal at but the good news is that it is discounted now, so you don’t even have to wait until Monday to order it.  The original price is $129.99 but with the discount, it’s only $79.99, including shipping.  $50.00 off; only.
  • Valentine’s Day Roses – Okay, this might not be the typical item for the Health & Beauty category, but they are pretty.  It’s always nice to order some beautiful roses for that special someone for Valentine’s Day.  At you can take advantage of this deal to get 35 long-stemmed red roses and a glass vase that will be delivered on Februrary 12 or 13th for $69.99 (including all delivery charges).  The flowers are provided by Vistaflor, a grower located in Columbia.  I’ve noticed that flowers that come direct from the grower like this (as opposed to going through a local florist shop), last much longer and look way healthier.  $69.99 for 35 roses with vase and delivery; only.

    Natalie – If you are a new member and did not receive your Costco Coupon book you should go to the Customer Service desk at your Costco and ask them for one. They have extras for just such occasions. Also, you should have them check your membership to make sure that you are opted-in to receive this type of mailing from Costco.

    How can i get a coupon book for Costco products?

  3. 3 Kimberly // 2009.02.13 at 7:41 pm

    I believe that they track the coupon usage per membership number. However, I’ve never actually confirmed that to be true by trying to use those types of coupons more than once. It’s just my belief that they track it from things that people who work there have said to me.

  4. 4 mike // 2009.02.13 at 7:38 pm

    Does Costco track the number of coupons that you use? For example, if I use a coupon to buy a TV and the coupn says “only one per household”, can I go back a few days later with another coupon and buy another TV on my account? Or, does Costco know per their computer system that I already used my coupon?

    Unfortunately, Stanley, there is nothing you can do to get the $140.00 coupon savings now. However, there is a coupon that is currently valid for the Sealy “Waterbrook” mattress set (the coupon book lists the Queen size only but usually they cover other sizes too) for $100.00 off on item #332991.

  6. 6 Stanley Arky // 2009.02.11 at 3:46 pm

    We were away in January and wanted to purchase a King Sealy Waterbrook. mattress and box spring set, tne price was $799.00 less a cupon for $140.00 Is there any way we can still purchase the set for the same price it was on January 25th 2008? our costco membership # is ************** Exec. Thank Yoy Stanley Arky

    I kind of agree with you, Teresa. I think this could really lead to some angry customers. Especially if they are sending coupon books to some people in the area but not others. Because if I can see people using coupons and I didn’t get the coupon book and don’t get those savings, well, I’m going to be upset. And that is just going to lead to people complaining to the customer service desk.

  8. 8 Teresa // 2009.02.05 at 9:34 am

    Mailing coupon books to a different set of members each month will only create bad will. I know, because I’m already a little mad about the prospect of not getting coupons when someone else might.

    Differential pricing is horrible PR.

  9. 9 Kimberly // 2009.02.03 at 3:13 pm

    Hey Diane, thanks for all the great coupon information! If I’m an executive member will I always be mailed the coupon book? Or, will I need to go request one at the store?


  10. 10 Diane // 2009.02.03 at 2:54 pm

    This is an amazing website… I’m employed by this fantastic Company, and have been for the last 7 years! The coupons are now being printed on recycled paper in one of our efforts to “Go Green”! We also recycle our office paper, cardboard boxes, and shrink wrap… As for who the coupons are for: technically- if you don’t receive that specific coupon book, they weren’t for you. We switched to a new coupon program- we used to have 2 passport books/ year that had about 5 coupons per week for all members, then periodic Multivendor mailers- (MVM’s), and Executive coupons. We are now trying out one coupon book/month- each time to a different set of members. The coupons we receive in the stores should be passed out to new members… However- as a little trick- if you ask someone that has a book for one coupon that they are not going to use- it is a master coupon and will take of the coupons on all of your items ;)…If you didn’t receive a coupon book and you are an executive member- then most warehouses will give you one (until they run out)- this is just one of the perks of paying the extra $50/yr… Imagine all the money you would save- bounty, charmin, tide, pantene, crest, scope, etc are usual coupons for over $2.50 each… That $50 extra seems worth while… also you would receive a check in the mail for 2% back of your total purchases, able to get Credit monitoring for $7.95/mo, etc (check out the services page on Just a few hints!

    […] Garlic Chicken Alfredo Pizzas – These are one of the items in this month’s coupon book – $3.00 off.  These are a really nice thin crust pizza that you can have cooked and ready to go in […]

    These coupons come from the manufacturer and are printed by the manufacturer. Therefore the manufacturer picks what members they want to send the coupon books to. What they are doing now and in the future is making a single barcode that when scanned by the cashier, takes off all coupons for all items at once. Most of the coupons are limited to one item per coupon and the cashiers are no longer allowed to override that. The register will not allow it.

    The coupon books at the membership desk are supposed to be for new members only.

  13. 13 Kimberly // 2009.01.13 at 8:53 am

    Frank, that Healthy Choice coupon was limited to just one per coupon. I have noticed that if they don’t have something else printed on the front of the coupon in red, then you are safe assuming that the limit is one per coupon.

  14. 14 Frank // 2009.01.12 at 11:12 pm

    For the $3.50 off Healthy choice Chicken soup variety pack, is there a limit on the number of boxes you can purchase with one coupon? Bought 2, but looks like they only discounted 1.

  15. 15 Kimberly // 2009.01.12 at 8:43 am

    Kharn, I think your cashier was mistaken. The one coupon per household restriction means that you can only use one of a certain coupon, not that you can only use one coupon per checkout. So, if you’ve got a coupon for $3 off Quaker Oatmeal you can only get one box of that oatmeal but you are still able to also use the $2.50 off Lindt Truffles, as well as many other coupons as you want. On the back of the coupons it says how many of a specific item you can buy with each coupon; some of them have item limits, some of them don’t.

  16. 16 Kharn // 2009.01.11 at 11:16 am

    What’s with the “One coupon per household” restriction on the back? The checker told me I could only use one coupon this time due to that, when previously I’ve used 5+ at a time…

    Ugh. I *HATE* square pizzas. The interior slices have no crust, so unless you eat your pizza with a knife and fork, you’re gonna need alot more napkins. Plus the toppings always seem to slide off the interior pieces at my first bite. Please Costco, do not go back to square pizzas!

  20. 20 Saara // 2009.01.04 at 3:59 pm

    I love buying the Costco pizzas. Since there are only 2 of us, the size is a bit ridiculous, but it makes for a great frozen pizza. When I get it home I slice it into appropriate sized pieces and then just put the box into the freezer. No additional wrapping or anything. When I want a piece or two, I take them out and bake them. Naturally I don’t store it this way for long, but I’ve managed to keep one for 2 weeks in the freezer without too much degradation. I just wish they’d go back to the square ones.

    Like a few others here I haven’t been receiving my coupon books in the mail. I asked at the front desk for the December book and they told me it was only for Executive Members. Do you know if the January book is for everybody or only for Executive Members? Thanks!
