Costco UK Coupon Book: April 30 – May 20, 2012

April 30th, 2012 · 6 Comments

The latest Costco UK coupon book starts today (30 April) and runs through 20 May.  This coupon book seems to have a pretty good mix of coupons for food, cleaning items and electronics with a few other assorted items thrown in to pique your interest.

Costco UK Coupon Book: April 30 - May 20, 2012

I’ve uploaded the latest Costco UK Coupon Book PDF (or view it in the Google PDF viewer) so you can browse it if you haven’t gotten yours yet.  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 and without the codes, so they clearly do not want you to clip the coupons out and give them to your cashier; they just automatically deduct them after they ring up your items. I 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.  I usually download a copy of the PDF I post to my iPhone before I go to the store so that I can easily reference it while shopping.

As usual, there are some really good coupons for cleaning supplies.  Perhaps the best is the half price coupon for the Dettol family of spray cleaners.  So, you can get a three bottle pack of the kitchen, bathroom, or multipurpose cleaner for £3.52 (with VAT) after the £2.95 off coupon; of course you can get all three too.  That should keep your house sparkling clean for several months.  The other cleaning supply that I might give a try is the Cillit Bang Active Foam since it has a 30% off coupon.  That coupon amounts to a £1.29 savings on the two bottles, so you end up paying £3.60 (with VAT).  I’m also glad that they have the Fairy Non-Bio Liquitabs on offer this month; £8.98 (with VAT) after £2.00 coupon.  I tried the regular Fairy Non-Bio Liquid and while it works okay, it’s kind of messy and sometimes my hands hurt too much to comfortably use the big, heavy bottle.  So, I think I’ll stock up on the liquitabs this month.

The one cleaning item that also kind of starts edging towards home electrics is the Dyson DC33 vacuum cleaner that has a £20.00 coupon this month.  Even with the coupon it will still be £215.98 (with VAT).  I wish they’d have a coupon for the little tiny baby Dyson because I’d like one but I don’t have room (or enough carpet) for the full sized version.

As far as food items go, there is a coupon for the really nice Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil six pack (6, 500 ml bottles).  This is a really nice olive oil and comes in these easy to handle smaller bottles.  You get £3.00 for a total of £7.98 for the six bottles.  That’s a really good deal, I think because you are going to pay between £2.00 – £3.48 for a single 500 ml bottle at Tesco, Asda or any of the regular supermarkets.  So you’re getting somewhere between two and almost four bottles free at Costco, depending on where you would normally buy your olive oil.

There are plenty of other good coupons available this month too.  I’m pretty sure there will be at least one or two things that will interest you.

    Hi, love your website it’s very helpful. You mentioned trying Cillit Bang foam. I would recommend reading the reviews first as I’ve found that this brand doesn’t work & I wouldn’t recommend it. Link to Amazon review here:
    I hope that helps.

      @Mrs Ed – Thanks for the tip! Guess I’ll give the Cillit Bang a pass.

    Dear blogger,

    I watched the costco craze and learned of your website. I too would say I’m addicted to coscto. I am asking you this question because Im wondering if you know the answer. I recently purchased a book for my college gradate son “You Have A College Degree, Now What?” An absolutely fabulous book that I’ve tried my best to turn other friends parents on to. Do you have any idea why Costco is NOT carrying this book given the topic I think it would be a huge success.

    Thanks for your awesome blog and all the hardwork it took to build it.

    “You Have A College Degree, Now What?”

      @John – I don’t know why they aren’t selling that book. Maybe they don’t think it would be a good fit for their shoppers. Or, maybe they just aren’t aware of it. Or, maybe the publisher wouldn’t work with them on the cover design and they figured the way it is, it wouldn’t catch anyone’s attention. It could be any number of reasons. But since they have such a small selection of books (like only 250 titles, I believe) they probably have specific criteria that need to be met that isn’t necessarily possible for all books or publishers.

    In the USA, coupons must be presented at the cashier for the sale. At times, a certain coupon might say coupon not needed, and it is automatically deducted. But for all other sales, the coupon MUST be presented or you don’t get the discounted price.

      @Jerry – That’s not strictly true because it depends on which Costco location you go to in the US. There are plenty of people on here that say you don’t need the coupons at their location. Also, they only need one coupon out of the books to give you the discount for all of the coupons in that particular coupon book.
