Starting Thursday January 29th is the February 2015 Costco Coupon Book. It will run for 3.5 weeks through February 22nd. Clicking the link above will allow you to download, view, or print the coupon book. This early preview gives you the opportunity to plan your upcoming shopping trips, and to make sure you don’t buy something this week that will soon be on sale. The January coupon book is still running through Sunday if you’d like to take a look at that. The February coupons are 16 pages long.

This seems to be a rather boring coupon book this month. One deal that stands out is the Feit LED Utility Shop Light ($31.99). Another is the Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner, as well as the Harmonics Laminate Flooring. Huggies are not on sale very often, so if diapers are your thing that can be a good deal. As for myself, I’ll likely pick up some facial tissue (stupid colds!), as well as the Atlantic Salmon and the Baby Back Ribs. I’ve never purchased the ribs before, but I have a good recipe I’ve been wanting to try, so I might finally pull the trigger. The tire coupon is Michelin again, which means it should switch back to Bridgestone on March 4th. Read more to see a list of items in the coupon book. Any must buy items?

The new January 2015 Costco Coupon Book starts next Tuesday, the 30th of December and runs through January 25th. Click the link above to view, download, or print the coupon book out. This will give you the opportunity to plan your upcoming shopping trips and wait to buy the items that will be going on sale next week. Click through to the February Coupon Book which starts next Thursday, on January 29th. It is strange for a coupon book to start on a Tuesday, but I imagine that might be because of Costco being closed on Thursday, which is when the coupon books have traditionally started.

The general consensus says that the January coupons are slightly better than the December ones, but not by much. I’ve seen excitement over the Oral-B replacement brush heads, but that’s about it. As for myself, there’s really nothing that interests me. The tire coupon has switched back to Michelin for the next two months. Are there any items you see in this booklet that you can’t wait to pickup? Let us know in the comments!

One of the hottest Christmas items at Costco every year is the Prime Rib roast. There are not a lot of stores you can buy a full bone-in prime rib and Costco is one of them. They usually go on sale about two weeks before Christmas, and the tag says the shelf life is 5 days. The weekend before Christmas is the ideal time to buy it if you plan to make a roast for Christmas Eve or Christmas day. The problem is that the prime rib is really popular at Costco, and as soon as they are put out on the shelves they tend to go quickly. You might have to wait a little while for another batch to be packaged and put out.
Costco Prime Rib Roasts
There are two choices for the seasoned prime rib roast. There is USDA Choice and USDA Prime. The prime has a higher cost because it is the highest grade of beef, known for it’s marbling and tenderness, due to using younger cows. The prime sells for $16.99 per pound and the choice sells for $11.49 per pound. Looking back at my 2011 post on the Costco prime rib roast we can see that the Prime cut has stayed the same price while the Choice has gone up $1.50 per pound. The seasoning used is a steak rub with olive oil and the prime rib is stuffed with whole cloves of garlic. Costco suggests buying about 1 pound of prime rib per person for a dinner. The cheapest prime rib I saw for sale was around $85, which was a little under 8 pounds. If you’d like to see the cooking instructions click the image below. Also, be on the lookout for discounted prime rib right after Christmas. I’ve seen it as low as $3.99/lb as the expiration dates get close. Is your family getting a prime rib for Christmas this year?

There are a few different Christmas trees at Costco this year. You can get a fresh cut noble fir at several locations, and pre-lit Christmas trees at all locations. The 2012 artificial Costco Christmas trees brought about the color choice trees, and now that is your only option. Color choice means you can choose whether you want the tree to be multi-colored or white, or you can have it alternate between the two. The prices have gone up a little bit, but are still very reasonable considering what you get. You also get a few less bulbs than in the past, probably to make up for the fact that the bulbs have both colors in them and therefore are more costly to make.
7.5′ Pre-lit LED EZ Connect Dual Color Christmas Tree $289 (Item #915675)
- 780 dual color LED lights
- On/Off foot pedal
- Three part easy setup
- Locking metal tree stand
- Perfect Shape technology with hinged branches to allow it to fold when put away
- Pole-to-pole electrical connection. Only one plug, no messy plugs to deal with inside tree
9′ Pre-lit LED EZ Connect Dual Color Christmas Tree $399 (Item #915690)
- 1,050 dual color LED lights
- On/Off foot pedal

In a little bit of a surprise, the December 2014 Costco Coupon Book starts next Monday, the 24th of November. Clicking the link will allow you to view, download, or print the coupon book out. This early preview give you the opportunity to see what you want to hold off on buying until it comes on sale next week, and better plan out your upcoming shopping trips. The coupons will be valid from November 24th through December 24th, which is also about a week longer than Costco usually has them go for. The January 2015 coupon book starts on December 30th if you’d like to see that as well. This coupon book seems to start earlier than normal so it can encompass Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Thanksgiving weekend. There are three different Costco coupon books that will be running at the same time, the Pre-Holiday Savings Event which goes through December 1st, the Black Friday ad which goes through November 30th, and these coupons. If you want to be the first one to find out when we post the latest coupon book please subscribe to our email list, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter!
With the exception of the Invicta Men’s Watch, I don’t really see much that would make good Christmas gifts. The mac and cheese could be good for a holiday party and the Ghirardelli squares can be good to put out during Christmas time, but that is about it. The Emergen-C and Airborne is good for those that get sick during the holidays as well. Overall, I find this coupon book very underwhelming. I don’t think there’s anything that I would be buying. The tire coupon is once again Bridgestone.
If you’ve bought something recently that goes on sale starting November 24th I’d recommend bringing your receipt into the store, going to membership, and asking for a price match. They’ll send you to the special cashier (first checkstand) to get your money refunded. If it’s been within two weeks you shouldn’t have an issue. If it’s been longer you may have to buy the item again and return it with the old receipt. Anything stand out to you in this coupon book or are you as underwhelmed as we are?

The first Costco Black Friday 2014 ad is now posted. There are 87 deals in total in the Pre-Holiday coupon book. Clicking the link above will allow you to view the PDF, download it, or print it out if you’d like. The first four pages run from November 21st through December 1st, which encompasses Black Friday weekend. The next four pages run from November 21st through November 26th, ending a day before the Thanksgiving holiday. The last three pages are online only offers valid from November 21st through November 27th, which includes Thanksgiving day in case you want to do some online shopping that day. The Costco stores will not be open on Thanksgiving day (bucking a controversial trend). There is also another Costco Black Friday 2014 ad scan you can see on my site which runs from November 28th through the 30th.
All of these items are Instant Savings and will not require a clipped coupon in order to take advantage of them. The prices in this coupon book are reflective of the Bay Area Costco region and may not reflect final price at your Costco location. It’s an exciting time of year to be a Costco member as there are plenty of deals to be had. Also take a peak at the November Coupon Book, which is also running right now. The most talked about items in this coupon book are the Samsung TVs. Specifically the 65″ and 75″ TVs. Read more for a list of products with prices.

Starting on Thursday is the November 2014 Costco Coupon Book and it is available now for your viewing pleasure. If you’d like to take a look at it before it begins you can plan your upcoming shopping trips and make sure you don’t buy items now that will be on sale next week. Clicking the link above will allow you to view, download, or print the coupon book out. The new coupons will run from October 30th through November 23rd. The October coupon book will be valid through October 26th if you’d still like to take advantage of those deals as well. The only items that will require a physical coupon book or the app is the glasses deal, the holiday cards, and the photo greeting cards. If you want to be the first one to find out when we post the latest coupon book please subscribe to our email list, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter!
Compared to the October coupon book this one is not quite as good. I believe this to be pretty common for the November coupon book as Costco saves their best deals for Black Friday. The first Costco Black Friday ad scan is now available if you want to start planning your Christmas shopping. As far as some of the better deals in this flyer there is a heated throw for only $23.99, the Philips Sonicare Replacement Brush Heads 6pk for $10 off to make them $39.99, and the Naked Juice variety pack at $4 off. Some other seasonal items that might be good to buy include a slow cooker at $10 off, the KitchenAid mixer at $60 off, Lindt truffles, and the temporal artery thermometer. The Gold Toe socks are always a great value, especially after $3 off. As for myself I’ll likely pick up some Opti-free contact solution and a Starbucks Frappuccino pack. The Naked Juice pack could also be interesting to try. For November and December the tire coupon is Bridgestone.
If you’ve bought something recently that goes on sale starting October 30th I’d recommend bringing your receipt into the store, going to membership, and asking for a price match. They’ll send you to the special cashier (first checkstand) to get your money refunded. If it’s been within two weeks you shouldn’t have an issue. If it’s been longer you may have to buy the item again and return it with the old receipt. Click on Read More if you’d like to see a list of the items on each page.

For your early viewing pleasure I have the October 2014 Costco Coupon Book available now.

If you’d like to view, download, or print the coupon book out just click the link above. The September coupons are still valid through Sunday September 28th if you’d like to look at those deals as well. The new October coupon book will run from October 2nd through October 26th.

There’s a few items of interest in this coupon book. The 46″ and 55″ Samsung Smart LED TV’s are both $130 off. If you’re in the market for a Dyson vacuum this could be a good time to get one at $70 off. The Dyson Hot + Cool Heater fan is very nice, although still probably too expensive for most despite the $65 off. I love the Braun Series 7 Shaver and highly recommend it. I also hear of interest in the Craisins and the Potstickers. As for myself, I may check out the Vizio Sound Bar. I like that it does Bluetooth and that the Subwoofer is wireless. I also really like the Head Multisport Gloves they get every year, and my last pair ripped, so I might get some at $3 off. I’ve been wanting to try the Kirkland Signature Ravioli Lasagna, so this will likely be the push I need to try it. As predicted, the tire coupon is once again Michelin. That means it will be Bridgestone in the November Costco coupon book.
If you’ve bought something recently that goes on sale starting October 2nd I’d recommend bringing your receipt into the store, going to membership, and asking for a price match. They’ll send you to the special cashier (first checkstand) to get your money refunded. If it’s been within two weeks you shouldn’t have an issue. If it’s been longer you may have to buy the item again and return it with the old receipt. What are you going to pick up out of the latest coupon book?

Starting on Launch Day (September 19th, 2014) you’ll be able to buy the iPhone 6 and 6+ in store at Costco. Supplies are very limited so you should definitely get there right when they open if you want one. There will also be a special discount deal available. You’ll get $20 off the list price. You’ll also receive a special accessories package, which from what I’ve heard will include a case, a car charger and a car mount. That is a great value considering Apple does not regularly discount their products. The case will only come in the special promotion tomorrow (Launch Day).
Your mileage may vary, but my local store will be doing a ticketing system. So, you show up, get a number, and then when they get to your number they’ll call you to the kiosk. This will prevent having a long line and allow you to shop (and sample!) around the store while waiting. They also said they’ll have no 128GB models and no space grey models. I think it will definitely vary from store to store. Some stores said they won’t get any 6 Plus iPhones in. They do expect some for AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. You will have to sign a new 2 year contract. One benefit you will get at California Costcos is that you won’t have to pay tax on the full retail price, unlike at Apple or another store. Lastly, I will warn you to make sure your grandfathered unlimited data plan will transfer over if you have one. It was not an option when people ordered through Costco online.
