Costco US Coupon Book: August 8 – September 1, 2013

August 6th, 2013 · 8 Comments

The next Costco US coupon book starts this Thursday, August 8 and runs throughout the month of August to September 1.  This coupon book has $1,900.00 in savings for the warehouses, which is a few hundred more than last month.  There’s also an additional $7,500.00 in savings, which is quite a bit more than last month as well, about $2,000 more actually.

If you weren’t aware, Costco had updated their coupon policy for “streamlined savings”.  Basically, that means that you’ll not have to clip coupons (if you needed to for you location) again, but instead you can just show the cashier the coupon book.  Or, if that is too much for you to remember to bring, as it would be for me, you can get the latest Costco smartphone app that will allow you to use the coupons in the app for in-store redemption.  Now all you have to do to redeem the coupons is show the cashier your smartphone with the Costco app or the Costco coupon book.  So, if you’ve got a smartphone and haven’t downloaded the Costco app yet, this is the perfect reason to do so.  You can get the app for either iPhone or Android in their respective app stores.  The only coupons that you must have the app or coupon book to redeem are the ones with the blue arrow, so there are still plenty of instant savings deals as well.

Costco US Coupon Book: August 8 – September 1, 2013

I’ve uploaded the new Costco US 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 coupon book.  Additionally, you can view the coupons via the Costco smartphone app as well.  You can also view them on the website but they’re only available when the coupon book is active, so no preview.

As usual, there’s a coupon for $70.00 off a set of Bridgestone tires.  You can also take advantage of this deal through This is a great time to get some new tires to prepare for all that fun driving required for the new school year.  

Also, if you’re kids are much smaller than school age, you’ll probably be interested in the coupons for Huggies baby wipes and diapers.  You can get a jumbo pack of 1,120 of the Huggies Natural Care wipes for $5.00 off, but sadly you are limited to just 2 boxes.  And you can also get $6.00 off a box of Huggies Snug & Dry diapers, the number in the box depends on the size; again you are limited to just two boxes.  Both of these deals can also be purchased through the website, if you don’t have the energy to leave the house after becoming a new parent.

A number of the things we buy quite often at Costco have coupons/deals this month:

  • Izze Sparkling Juice, 24, 8.4 oz cans for $3.75 off.  I only buy this when it is on sale because I feel it is a bit much otherwise.  But I do love all the flavours and find it super refreshing, especially on a hot summer day.  These would be great if you are planning  an end of summer party or something for Labor Day even.  I must admit, I do miss the cute factor of them being in the little glass bottles, but I’m sure the cans are a better way to ship it and that means that the box now contains 24 cans instead of just 12 bottles.
  • San Pellegrino Mineral Water, 12, 25.3 oz bottles for $3.00 off.  We always, always have some of this in the house.  I pretty much just drink water, so sometimes I like to liven things up with bubbly water, or get really zany and add juice or fruit to it to make a spritzer (like the Langer’s Mango Nectar – best stuff ever).  The prices at Costco are so much better than anywhere else, that it’s hard to believe too.  
  • Clorox 2 Stain Fighter & Color Booster, 112.75 oz jug/ 82 loads for $3.00 off.  When in the US, this was a staple in my laundry arsenal.  It is incredible at getting out any type of stain I’ve come across.  It just makes it vanish like magic.  Plus, I really do think it helped keep our clothes looking more vibrant and our whites brighter too.  
  • OxiClean Stain Fighter, 12.5 pounds for $4.00 off.  If you’re not into the Clorox 2 but still want your whites to dazzle, then OxiClean is an excellent choice.  Plus, you can use this on so much more than just laundry.  I’ve used it with quite good success on tile grout and even the outside of our house to get it super clean.  
  • Vanity Fair Napkins, either 200 Dinner napkins or 600 Everyday napkins, for $1.50 off.  I’m not sure what an Everyday napkin is but I love these napkins.  I think I must have always purchased the dinner size before.  In any case, they are very soft and absorbent, plus they are thick enough that they will stand up to actually using them, no matter how messy your meal.  Even with things like BBQ.  They are definitely a step up from the average paper napkin.
  • Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats, 70 oz box for $2.00 off.  These are great for cereal or just as a dry snack.  Dave and I both find them rather filling, so for us this is an alternative to other snack foods.  I believe when we purchased this in the US before, it came in two bags so that you don’t have to plow through the whole 70 oz super quick because you are worried about it getting stale.  
  • Harry’s Organic Creamy Tomato Basil Soup, 2, 30 oz containers for $2.40 off.  Yum!  This is thick and creamy and luscious.  If you like tomato soup, you’ll love this.  It is the perfect accompaniment to a grilled cheese sandwich.  Everyone I know that has ever tried this has really liked it, even some people that weren’t that crazy about tomato soup.  It has a lot of flavour and just enough basil taste to round it out but not to overwhelm.  I wish I had a bowl right now…and of course the grilled cheese to go with.

There are plenty of other great coupons in this upcoming coupon book, so be sure to check it out before your next trip to Costco.  Also, if you’ve got a smartphone, be sure to download the new Costco app so that you can stop carrying the coupon book around.

    My smartphone has no Internet reception in Costco because of the metal of the building. The app will not pull up the coupons without Internet. I called the 800 customer service and they have no intention of putting wifi in Costco so smartphones can get Internet reception. So I hope just having the app is enough , because the app does not actually work in my Costco. I agree paying membership should be enough and jumping through these weird hoops to gets what amounts to their monthly sales price is off putting. It is not consistent with the high end customer friendly atmosphere Costco has always had.

    I hate the new policy – I don’t have a “smartphone” & don’t intend to ever have one. I was happy just being able to use the fact that I pay for a membership & can’t purchase without being a member….why isn’t that fact good enough to have access to the “coupon” price? I would prefer not to have to carry the book with me every time I go to Costco, means I have to keep track of that stupid book all month. I pay over $100 to be a member, just give me the correct prices.

      my Costco has not changed its policy. I did not need the coupons when I was there recently. I also do not have a smartphone and do not carry my ipad when Costco shopping.

    I have never had to give them a coupon at my Costco in CT. They just automatically ring it up for me.

    Anyone have any info on the Cedar Park, Texas location? I’m trying to transfer over there, but haven’t heard anything back from them yet.

    Yea! Thanks for the coupons, again!!

    Also worth mentioning, the new coupon policy says they will not have extra copies at the store. So if you are not interested in the app and do not receive the coupons in the mail, call customer service to have your information updated!

      I may be wrong, but I think they’ve always said that about the coupon books.
