Costco Coupon Book – March 16 – April 5, 2009

March 13th, 2009 · 25 Comments

There seem to be a lot of coupons in this edition of the Costco Coupon book.  In total there are just over 100 coupons this month, including the ones that are only for items on  The biggest share come from things that fall into the Health and Beauty category; things like toothpaste, shampoo, over the counter medicine and vitamins.  I guess, Costco has realized that not so many people are buying televisions and computers right now since they are down to just 11 Electronics coupons this time.

These coupons go into effect Monday, March 16th, and are valid through Sunday, April 5th; that’s just 3 weeks of time to use these coupons.

Food & Beverages: There are 17 food and beverage coupons.  I wish they had a couple of coupons for juice but there are still some really great items.  Like the DiGiornio pizzas that I didn’t even know they sold at Costco.  Has anyone tried the won ton soup that has a coupon this month?  We always look at it and wonder if it is any good or worth buying.

  • Oberto or Pacific Gold Twin-Pack Jerky – I must admit, almost every time that Costco has beef jerky on sale, we buy some.  It’s great to take along on hiking or camping trips; you don’t have to worry about it going bad or breaking in your backpack.  Since it lasts so long too, you can really stock up when they have a coupon.  I think it is around $10 or $11 normally, so the $3.50 off makes it a reasonable $7ish for the twin pack.  $3.50 off.
  • Del Monte Orchard Select Peaches – I almost bought some of these last week because I was thinking they’d be great to keep on hand for a quick desserty type item after dinner during the week.  I mean, peaches are yummy by themselves or with ice cream, or angel food cake, or coconut rice even.  At Costco you get 4, 24 ounce jars bundled together and these are really nice peaches too.  They’re in big pieces not little diced up hunks that you know are the leftover bits from something else they’re doing in the factory.  I wish this coupon were good for the pears too.  $2.75 off.
  • Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough – We bought this last time they had a coupon for it because it was so reasonably priced for 5 pounds of cookie dough in a tub; you can just dish out a couple of cookies at a time.  It makes a nice cookie too.  Sure, they’re not quite like homemade (which might be a good thing for some people) but it’s convenient and sometimes that’s more important.  You can read this previous post for my full review of the cookie dough.  When we last purchased it, in September, it was $7.79 – $2.00 coupon for a total of $5.79.  $2.00 off.
  • DiGiorno Rising Crust Pizza – We used to buy the DiGiornio pizzas all the time at the regular grocery store but I don’t recall seeing them at our Costco before.  But apparently, they have them in a 3 pack.  These have a nice crust that is on the thicker side (especially compared to the Palermo’s brand that we normally get from Costco) but they have a nice amount of sauce and toppings for the crust.  $3.25 off.
  • Other Coupons:
    • Sun Chips Variety Pack, 24-1.5 ounce bags: $2.00 off.
    • Kirkland Signature JellyBelly Jellybeans, 4 pound jar or 24-2 ounce bags: $4.00 off.

    • CP Shrimp Won Ton Soup, 6-5.1 oz bowls: $2.25 off.

Household Items: There are 25 coupons for various household items; everything from tires to cleaning supplies to a new bathroom vanity.  There’s certainly something in this category that will be of use to you.  They have a lot of home improvement type items this time, it seems.

  • Michelin BF Goodrich All-terrain or BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain Tires – Everyone loves a tire sale.  I know this is one of the things that people really wait for Costco to have a coupon on before they buy, so I wanted to make sure that I pointed it out.  The coupons for tires at Costco are always for a set of 4 and can be used at your local Costco or at the online Costco Tire Center.  If for nothing else, you can go online to see what the recommended tires for your car are and make sure they are covered by the coupon.  $70.00 off.
  • Rug Doctor Mighty Pro Carpet Cleaning Machine – When did they start selling these things at places like Costco?  I thought this was a rent only kind of machine.  It is such an odd thing, I felt it necessary to point out.  And bonus, it comes with 2-48 ounce bottles of Oxy-Steam and a universal hand tool.  When you’re done cleaning your own carpet you can rent it out to your friends.  $75.00 off.
  • Kirkland Signature Beach Towels – We bought some of these a couple of years ago and they are really great.  Ours are super soft and feel better than some bath towels I’ve used.  They have a variety of fun colors and beachy patterns too.  Not to mention, they are very good sized so you have plenty of lounging space.  $3.00 off.
  • Other Coupons:
    • Bounty Paper Towels, 9 rolls: $2.50 off.
    • Vanity Fair Napkins, 600 luncheon napkins, 200 dinner napkins or 400 beverage napkins: $1.75 off.

    • Chevron or Shell Motor Oil,  10W-30, 10W-40, or 5W-30: $7.00 off.

Health & Beauty: There are a whopping 31 coupons that fit into this category in this month’s Costco Coupon book.  There are several for vitamins and over the counter medications too.  However, there are a lot that will allow you to stock up on bathroom staples such as Q-Tips, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo and conditioner.  I talk about the wonderful Oral-B toothbrushes every time Costco has a coupon for them, so I decided I would refrain from singling them out again.

  • ThermaCare Heat Wraps – These things are great if you’ve got a sore muscle in your back or neck.  They fasten around you with a little bit of Velcro and can stay in place for up to 8 hours while heating up the problem spot.  I’ve used them on my back before and it did make it feel so much better.  I also imagine that you could use them on other muscles as long as you could get them to stay in place.  It’s nice to have something that can provide the heat without needing to be plugged in or re-heated.  Of course, you do need to make sure that it isn’t burning your skin (especially if you are older or have a condition that might make you more sensitive to heat or less aware that it is too hot).  You can either get a 6 pack of wraps for your back, or a 9 pack of wraps for your neck.  $3.00 off.

    I really thought I was the only person addicted to Costco. I’m pleased there are many more of us roaming the world! lol. We have a Costco 5 mins walk from our house and the amount of money we spend (and save) is incredible.

  2. 2 Steve // 2009.04.12 at 6:04 am

    Coupon books are always interesting but the one thing I find very annoying is that they do not tell you the price of the item.. so $30 off a camera does not tell me much at all.

  3. 3 Kimberly // 2009.04.06 at 11:29 am

    Frank, Costco is a great place to shop. But of course I would say that, huh? Their goods are high quality and offer a great value. You can get either a regular Gold Star membership for $50.00 per year, or an Executive Membership for $100.00 per year. With the Executive Membership you get 2% back on your Costco purchases (excluding gas and travel), which can really add up if you spend very much over the year. Plus, they will refund your membership fee in full at any time if you are dissatisfied. For a full list of all of the benefits of a Costco membership, you can view their membership page.

    Also, you might want to check out my post on the American Express TrueEarnings card. This is a combo card with your Costco membership that will give you even more back on your purchases, including gas and travel, from Costco as well as any other place.

    Hope this helps!

    Hello Costco shoppers!!

  9. 9 Stacey // 2009.03.24 at 5:08 pm

    I just found this site and I love it. I am going to start a new membership at Costco tonight, it’s a brand new store to my area and I think the ONLY store in the state of Nebraska!! Thanks for the awesome coupon rundown 🙂

  10. 10 Clue // 2009.03.22 at 5:08 pm

    Calm down Penny!! It’s not a plot! The prices are not listed because they can really vary by location. Putting out a separate book for each city or store is the kind of costly impracticality that other grocers do and leads to such higher prices. Costco saves us money, in many ways and this is one of them. We actually have to get up off of our duffs and be active participants in the saving of our money.

  11. 11 penny // 2009.03.22 at 1:52 am

    Ok it is nice to know that something is $3 off…. but what is the PRICE TO BEGIN WITH or what is the FINAL price before tax with the dicsount???? I am a comparison shopper and I look at the advertisements that come in the mail—-I don’t want to go to Costco and find that $3 off still means I pay more than someplace else—so often I don’t bother going to Costco and deal with the crowd when I know I can get something for what I want to pay at some other store. I notice for electronics they give the exact price-but not for things like food, fashion, and other products. Costco loses business from me when I don’t have a comparison price simply because I don’t want to deal with them just hoping it may be the cheapest price. Now I am a loyal customer and I go there once a month to get groceries and other items, but when it comes to their coupons and things I may want to purchase, I often don’t bother making an extra trip when I don’t have a comparison price on a specific item. Oh I suppose it is a marketing strategy that if you pop in to check on a particular item, the customer will make some spontaneous purchases. Well I don’t want to even go to Costco to check on a a price of an item, so that backfires for me.

    I just learned something amazing about Costco coupons yesterday. I noticed that that the cashier always scans only ONE coupon then throws them all in the trash. When I asked her about this, she said that scanning any of the coupons gives you ALL the coupon discounts in the whole book for anything in it! When I arrived back home, I looked at the barcodes on the back of the remaining coupons – THEY ARE ALL THE SAME!!! Every last one of them in the current book has barcode 2000000 000114. This means that you can use ANY coupon in the book to get the appropriate discount on ANY item in it!

    You should always check your receipt to ensure that each coupon has been applied the correct number of times. This has nothing to do with the scan & toss coupon handling, but with incorrect programming in their computer. After multiple Costco shopping trips I have found either no discount for a coupon item, or only one discount when the coupon clearly stated a higher limit or unlimited. In fact, I purchased the beach towel yesterday and didn’t get the $3.00 discount. Customer service will always gladly correct the error, but I’m sure many customers never notice it in the first place.

    I like to put a few of Costco’s snap peas in the won ton soup. Tasty and easy lunch for those busy days at work.

  14. 14 Blanca Gonzalez // 2009.03.21 at 2:09 pm

    I just put the coupon in an envelope. I’ll send the coupon for your photoshop on Monday.

  15. 15 Marco // 2009.03.20 at 9:57 pm

    Anyone not using their Adobe Elements 7 coupon? Perhaps mail to me to use? I have a Costco card but its a business member as my parents are the executive members. I live in MO and my parents live in CA and you only get one oupon book to the main account. Went to the customer service desk and they were no help. Walked through the store and didnt see any coupons or people using them. If you could/would mail to :

    Marco Ramirez
    86 Cedar Grove Court
    St. Charles MO 63304

    Thanks fellow Costco shoppers!

  16. 16 Kimberly // 2009.03.17 at 8:54 am

    Hey Jo, glad that I could lure you over to the Costco side! I hope you like it as much as we do & that it lives up to my hype. 🙂

    Kimberly – Many thanks for the info.

    Sams has great prices but they don’t have additional coupons for food items and household cleaning items etc.

  20. 20 Kimberly // 2009.03.16 at 10:29 am

    Jo, all membership types will receive the coupon books. Once you sign up you may need to wait up to 2 months (is what I’ve been told) to receive your coupon books. However, you can always go directly to the Customer Service desk in your local Costco to get a copy of the latest coupon book. When you sign up you need to make sure that you check the box that gives Costco the okay to send you mail, otherwise, you won’t get your coupons.

  21. 21 Jo // 2009.03.16 at 9:17 am

    Don’t mean to be stupid but I am currently a Sams shopper and I really want to switch to Costco.

    Please let me know which membership I need to get coupons and how I actually get them mailed to my house?

    The WON TON SOUP is amazing. I love it!

  23. 23 Alicia // 2009.03.14 at 2:38 am

    The CP Shrimp Won Ton Soup is good. My friends say it’s a good-buy. Juicy inside, and very easy to cook.

  24. 24 Cynthia // 2009.03.13 at 10:07 pm

    Thanks for the list. I was hoping they’d have some cup cake coupons…..

  25. 25 Andy // 2009.03.13 at 5:34 pm

    Thanks for posting all these coupons!
