Costco Christmas Trees 2014

Costco Christmas Trees

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.

Costco Coupons December 2014

December 2014 Costco Coupon Book Cover

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 November coupon book is still valid up until November 23rd if you’d like to take a look at that. 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 listlike 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?

Costco Black Friday 2014 Ad Scan

Black Friday 2014 Costco Coupon Book Ad Scan Cover

The three day Costco Black Friday 2014 weekend ad scan is now available. Clicking the link above will allow you to view and print the ad scan. The Black Friday deals will not only run on that Friday but also on Saturday and Sunday. Therefore, it starts November 28th and runs through November 30th. There are three total deal sections in this ad scan. The first is the Black Friday ads that are valid in Costco stores. The second is the online only deals, which run from November 27th to December 1st and encompass Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. Lastly, there are some additional savings for in-warehouse items from December 1st through December 14th. Don’t forget the Pre-Holiday Savings Event also will be running over that weekend as well.

Besides the fact that there isn’t a mad dash to get one of the two TV’s deeply discounted like at Wal-Mart, one exciting thing about Black Friday weekend at Costco is the annual cookbook giveaway. Starting Friday morning everyone who leaves Costco will get a free cookbook. By mid-day Saturday Costco is typically out of them, so it is quite a hot item. Look out for my cookbook giveaway here on the website as well!

There are a ton of good deals in the Black Friday 2014 Costco ad. I don’t have time to go over them all, so feel free to put a shoutout to what you like in the comments. The Google Chromecast is a great deal at $10 off, making it only $25 and you get $10 in Google Play credit in addition. The Nikon D3300 DSLR kit for $599 and the Sony A5000 for $449 are also good camera deals. The Blendtec 570 blender for $249 is a good deal if you don’t want to pay the extra needed to get a VitaMix. As for myself, I will likely get the kitchen bags, maybe a throw, and maybe the blu-ray player or the Chromecast.

As for the lack of TV deals expect another post with the unadvertised Black Friday TV deals, similar to last year. I think there are two reasons Costco does not advertise them. For one, they want to be able to negotiate with the vendors to get the lowest deals possible up to the last minute, and if they print deals way ahead of time they cannot change pricing. Secondly, they don’t want to have to compete with other stores on Black Friday weekend. They want the customers that know Costco has a good deal and a good warranty and that is enough for them. Leave a comment, let us know what you’re planning on picking up and what you think is a good deal!

Costco Black Friday 2014 Ad

Costco Pre-Holiday Coupon Book Cover

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.

Costco Coupons November 2014

November 2014 Costco Coupon Book Cover

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 listlike 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.

Costco Coupons October 2014

October 2014 Costco Coupon Book Cover

For your early viewing pleasure I have the October 2014 Costco Coupon Book available now. This gives you the chance to plan your upcoming shopping trips in advance and figure out what to wait to buy in the store. If you’d like to view, download, or print the coupon book out just click the link above.

Once again all items are Instant Savings, with the exception of Glasses, which will require a physical coupon book or the app. If you want to be the first one to find out when we post the latest coupon book please subscribe to our email listlike us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter!

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?

Costco iPhone 6 and 6+ in store

iPhone 6

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.

Costco Coupons September 2014 (9/4/2014 – 9/28/2014)

September 2014 Costco Coupon Book Cover

On September 4th the September 2014 Costco Coupon Book will begin. If you’d like to look at the coupons early before they start and see what you want to wait to buy or plan your next trip ahead of time you can now do so. By clicking the link above you can view, download, or print the coupon book out. The August coupon book is still valid through Sunday August 31st. The new September coupons will run from Thursday September 4th through Sunday September 28th. As is the new norm, no in-store items require the coupon book (besides photo center). If you want to be the first one to find out when we post the latest coupon book please subscribe to our email listlike us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter!

Nothing in this coupon book really stands out as being an amazing deal. There are Keurig K-Cup Packs at $5 off, as well as Starbucks Via at $3.25 off and Starbucks Frappuccino at $3 off, so basically all the coffee lovers are covered. Another couple interesting items to note are the Muscle Milk at $7 off and the Fiber One bars at $3.60 off. As for myself, I’m really curious about the Flameless LED Candle Variety Pack, which seems like a fantastic deal at $15.99 for 11 candles. Unfortunately that’s the only item of interest to me this month. The tire coupon has switched back to Michelin this month. You may also notice that it has a different time period than the rest of the coupon book, extending past Sunday September 28th and going through Wednesday October 1st. That surely means that the October coupon book will start Thursday October 2nd, as to avoid having a gap between tire coupon availability.

If you’ve bought something recently that goes on sale starting September 4th 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?

Costco Coupons August 2014 (8/7/2014 – 8/31/2014)

August 2014 Costco Coupon Book

Starting next Thursday, August 7th, is the August 2014 Costco Coupon Book. Here is an early preview of it in case you want to see what to wait to buy until the coupons start or plan your shopping ahead of time. Clicking the link above will allow you to view, download or print the coupon book out. The July 2014 coupons are still valid through this Sunday. The new coupon book will run from Thursday August 7th through Sunday August 31st. As seems to be the new normal, there are no in-store items that require the coupon book or app (besides the usual tires, glasses, and photo center). 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!

There is something in this coupon book which I find a little unique. The Finish Powerball Tabs and Finish Jet-Dry are buy one get one free (BOGO), which makes them a great deal. Also of note is that Huggies are on sale, which makes them a pretty good deal as well. The discount on the Bounty paper towels is a little bigger than normal at $4 off and it’s a good time to stock up on Honey Bunches of Oats. I will try the Glad trash bags because I need some new ones and I’ve never tried them. I will also check my Ziploc inventory and stock up if I’m low. I could really use some more laundry detergent, but not sure if I want to try Tide or stick with Costco’s Kirkland Signature. I REALLY like the ZonePerfect bars, and was surprised when they went out of stock last month, but it looks like it’s because they redid the packaging, so I am very excited to see they are coming back. They come in Fudge Graham and Chocolate Peanut Butter and both flavors are fantastic! For the last month of two, the tire coupon is Bridgestone, which means Michelin is coming up in the September coupon book.

If you’ve bought something recently that goes on sale starting August 7th 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?

Costco Coupons July 2014 (7/10/2014 – 8/3/2014)

July 2014 Costco Coupon Book Cover

Out now is the new July 2014 Costco Coupon Book which starts Thursday July 10th. If you click the link above it will allow you to view, download, or print the coupon book out. It’s nice when there are only four days between coupon books, since the June 2014 coupons ended just last Sunday. The coupon book runs from Thursday July 10th to Sunday August 3rd. For the third month in a row all in-store items on coupon do not require a coupon book or the app. 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!

One thing that is different this month is that the tire coupon does not end on Sunday the 3rd. It actually goes to Wednesday the 6th, which makes me think that the August 2014 Costco Coupon Book will start on Thursday the 7th. That way Costco can always have a tire coupon running. We’ll have to wait and see if that is the case. Not much to write home about except maybe the Oral-B replacement brush heads. As for myself, might pickup the Starbucks Frappuccino if it’s a decent price after the $3 off. I’ve also wanted contact lens solution for a while, so I might pickup a box of that at $4 off, probably Opti-Free. I also like getting the Grilled Chicken Sandwiches and having them for lunch and adding avocado and bbq sauce. The tires are now back to Bridgestone, and will assuredly run for the July and August coupon books.

If you’ve bought something recently that went on sale starting June 12th 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. Read more to see a list of items on each page. What are you going to pick up out of the latest coupon book?
