Costco Easter Baskets

Costco Easter Baskets 2013

You might not think to get your Easter baskets at Costco, but as always, they have you covered, and at a great price. For only $19.99 you get a large, colorful basket. It is wrapped in cellophane (clear plastic), has a handle on it, and is tied with a bow. The Easter baskets in my store are made by Houdini (Item #722921), weigh 25 ounces, and come in purple, green, and orange. They include the following:

Costco Easter Basket 2

  • Stuffed bunny holding a carrot
  • Laffy Taffy
  • M & M’s
  • Skittles
  • Snickers
  • Butterfingers
  • Kit Kat
  • Hersheys chocolate
  • Reeses
  • Air Heads
  • Lifesavers Gummies
  • Welch’s fruit snacks
  • Bottle Caps
  • A product by Cottage Lane, potentially cookies

Did you pick one up? You think it is a good deal? Remember, Costco is closed for the Easter Holiday on Sunday.

Costco Coupons March 2013 (3/7/2013 – 3/31/2013)

March 2013 Costco Coupon Book Cover

Hot off the presses is the March 2013 Costco coupon book, which runs from March 7th through March 31st. Clicking the link will allow you to view the coupons and download them. It is interesting that they run through March 31st, because that is Easter Sunday, and Costco is closed that day, but I guess they wanted to keep with tradition and have the coupon book end on a Sunday. To that point, the February 2013 coupon book and this March 2013 coupon book are very similar, and what I’d call a normal coupon book.

To be honest, I am not very excited after looking at these coupons. There is nothing that screams to me to buy it. On the other hand, others are pretty excited about a few items. First of all there is the Kirkland Signature Baby Wipes ($4 off), which hardly ever go on sale and could be worth it to stock up. In the same vein, they have the KS Flushable Wipes ($3 off) also on sale. While we’re at it, I imagine the KS Diapers are probably some of the cheapest around, and they’re $5 off as well. As for me, I will likely pick up the Chicken Ling Ling Potstickers ($2.50 off) and might have to try the Kashi GoLean Crisp! bars ($14 AC). Has anyone tried them? The tire coupon has switched back to $70 off a set of Bridgestone.

Remember, at most locations you can grab a book at your membership counter if you never got it mailed to you and at some locations the cashier will have the coupon there and automatically scan it for you. I  heard they are getting more strict on this though. Perhaps to encourage the new coupon email signup program. These coupons will not work in store, as you need the barcode. Read more to see a list of the items on coupon. Have you tried any of the items in this coupon book? What did you think?

Costco Valentine’s Day Flowers

All Valentine's Day Flowers

There is quite a selection of Valentine’s Day products available for purchase at Costco. The first thing that always comes to my mind is roses, and Costco does not disappoint. They have some of the best and cheapest ones available, at $15.99 for a dozen roses of varying colors.

Dozen Roses

Dozen Roses for $15.99

If you want a vase, they have a nice premium arrangement of roses and other decorations for $49.99. You can also pickup various other flower arrangements, which might include carnations, tulips, daisies, and more, and mostly run for $8.99. The day before Valentine’s Day there were hundreds of flower packages available, and I think Costco will have enough flowers through most of the big day.

Premium Roses with Vase

Premium Roses with Vase ($49.99)

I would definitely get there before 5 pm to make sure you get some and that they’re not the worst leftovers. One nice thing about getting flowers at Costco is that you don’t have to worry about a super long line of people getting flowers, and you know you’re getting just about the best price.

Flowers aren’t the only thing to pickup at Costco for Valentine’s Day, as they had quite the selection of chocolates today. For $12.99 you could get a box of Exquisite Belgian Chocolates by Godfun. Even better, for only $10.99 you could get Kirkland Signature Belgian Truffles in a 16 once variety box.

Various Chocolates

Various Chocolates

Costco also had a huge 3 lb. heart shaped box that looked pretty delectable, as well as a couple other options. The bakery specially made a box of a dozen hand dipped long stem strawberries, available for $12.99.  An option I think a lot of people forget are the gift cards at Costco. There are a lot of nearby restaurant discounts, as well as a gift card for See’s Candy, which could be very useful this time of year. Lastly, you could also pickup a nice bottle of wine or champagne at Costco and enjoy your evening with your significant other. You can find lots of great reviews on bottles at the Costco Wine Blog.

Costco Coupons February 2013 (1/31/2013 – 2/24/2013)

February 2013 Coupon book cover

Just released is the February 2013 Costco coupon book, which starts January 31st and goes through February 24th. The link above will allow you to view the coupons or download them. The January 2013 coupon book was a little unordinary in that it started on a Wednesday and had 5 pages of non-instant coupons, but this February coupon book is more back to normal. It starts on a Thursday and is back down to three blue pages (non-instant). If you’d like to be notified as soon as deals come up, make sure to subscribe to our email list, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter!

Some would suggest that this coupon book is another boring month, as the last few months have been. I do see some gems in there though. First of all, the Sealy Posturepedic King mattress set is a great price at only $640. They last forever, and are super comfortable. My spouse and I have had one from Costco for many years, and it has served us well. Also a good deal, the Seagate 4TB Backup Plus External Drive is on sale for $160. While the 3TB drive is on sale now, the 4TB is cheaper per TB and stores a lot more for taking up the same amount of space. Lastly, a lot of people are talking about the Cottonelle Flushable Wipes, and Huggies has some wipes that expire tomorrow in the January coupon book. I don’t use them, so I’m not sure which is better, but it’s something to consider. For myself, the Salmon and the Cafe Steamers I’ll probably pick up, and I’ll have to take a close look at the Motorola Bluetooth headset, as I could use one of those. For the second month in a row, the tire discount is for Michelin.

Remember, at most locations you can grab a book at your membership counter if you never got it mailed to you and at some locations the cashier will have the coupon there and automatically scan it for you. I  heard they are getting more strict on this though. Perhaps to encourage the new coupon email signup program. These coupons will not work in store, as you need the barcode.

Costco Coupons January 2013 (1/2/2013 – 1/27/2013)

January 2013 Costco Coupon Book Cover

The new January 2013 Costco coupon book starts this Wednesday, and goes through Sunday the 27th. Clicking the link will allow you to view it and download it if you’d like. This month there are 5 pages of coupons that require a physical coupon (blue coupons), so you’ll need to go to the membership desk in store and pick up a coupon book. Another interesting thing this month is that the coupon book starts on a Wednesday. From what I remember, for the last couple of years, it has always started on a Thursday.If you’d like to be notified as soon as deals come up, make sure to subscribe to our email list, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter!

There are really no deals that seem to stand out to me. The Dyson DC40 Animal Ball Vacuum had a $120 off coupon during Black Friday weekend, and now it’s only $100 off. Nonetheless, I picked it up myself during Black Friday and I can vouch, it’s an awesome vacuum. A lot of people seem to be interested in the Samsung Sound Bar and subwoofer (around $200), but I’ve heard mixed reviews on it. Also of interest is the Sony Blu-Ray player, which has been on sale for a while, and should continue to be priced around $89. Lastly, you can’t go wrong with the Kirkland Signature Chicken Tortilla Soup, so that should be a great buy at $2 off. I am tempted to pickup the Chobani Greek Yogurt and ON Whey Protein Powder, but I’ll have to do a closer comparison in store. The tires are finally back to the Michelin discount, so if you’ve been waiting, now’s your chance.

Remember, at most locations you can grab a book at your membership counter if you never got it mailed to you and at some locations the cashier will have the coupon there and automatically scan it for you.

Costco Christmas Trees 2012

Costco artificial pre-lit Flip Christmas tree

It’s that time of year again and Costco’s selection of 2012 Christmas trees is top notch. There are artificial Christmas trees that are pre-lit, as well as fresh cut Christmas trees sold in some Costco parking lots. As you can see in my 2011 review of my Costco artificial Christmas tree, I really like their trees. They are very easy to set up, look gorgeous, and are well priced. Meanwhile, the fresh trees are usually the best price in town and the best looking, if you can get one before they’re gone. Check out my post on the fresh cut trees for more information.

There are four different artificial trees sold at Costco this year. They are as follows:

7.5′ Pre-lit LED Artificial Christmas Tree $249 (Item #634274)

  • 1000 Constant ON LED lights
  • On/Off foot pedal
  • Three part easy setup
  • Comes with metal tree stand
  • Evergreen

7.5′ Pre-lit LED Artificial Color Choice Christmas Tree $279 (Item #648308)

  • 700 Color Choice LED lights
  • On/Off foot pedal

Costco Coupons December 2012 (11/26/2012 – 12/16/2012)

December 2012 Costco Coupon Book Cover

Now available is the December 2012 Costco coupon book, which is valid from November 26th to December 16th. There is actually no days off between the November coupons and the December coupons. The first link will allow you to view or download a copy of the coupon book, but there are three pages that require an actual physical coupon, which you’ll have to pickup at the membership desk. These coupons also overlap with a lot of other Costco deals, such as the Black Friday TV deals, some of the Black Friday unadvertised deals, Cyber Monday deals, and more. If you’d like to be notified as soon as deals come up, make sure to subscribe to our email list, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter!

This coupon book is historically geared toward Christmas shoppers and I’d say this one is no different. There are a bunch of laptops, cameras, iPod speakers, movies, and other Christmas gifts. Mini quiche and Egg Rolls are also on sale, which are perfect for those throwing Holiday parties. Most talked about is the Dunkin Donuts $4 off and the HP h8xt desktop. There really is no deal I think I will be partaking in, so I’m glad the coupon book is only 3 weeks long. It seems as if the tire coupons switch manufacturers every two months, so December is once again the Bridgestone coupon, and includes the install discount too.

Remember, at most locations you can grab a book at your membership counter if you never got it mailed to you and at some locations the cashier will have the coupon there and automatically scan it for you. I  heard they are getting more strict on this though. Perhaps to encourage the new coupon email signup program. These coupons will not work in store, as you need the barcode.

Costco Cyber Monday 2012

Costco Cyber Monday 2012

Cyber Monday deals have started at Costco.com. I also hear there will be markdowns starting today in the warehouses. No deal stands out in particular to me. The Element 39″ 1080p LED HDTV is probably the most talked about item, but it’s probably not even as good of a deal as the TCL 39″ Back-lit LED LCD or the Hisense 42″ 1080p LED TV, all of which are $299. Although there’s always risk that an item will sell out, most of these deals last longer than just Monday. There are only a couple of discounts that are only valid Monday. Out of the 115 deals listed or so, there are not really any that interest or excite me. Also, keep in mind the December 2012 Costco coupon book starts today. One interesting thing is that Costco will feature one deal a day for 24 days, and will be emailing you about the deal. What do you think? Will you be buying anything?

Costco Black Friday 2012 Unadvertised Deals

Unadvertised Deal

Costco has a bunch of unadvertised deals Black Friday weekend. I’m not sure why they’re not promoting them, but my guess would be that they’re trying to price match other retailers. Here is a list of SOME of the deals you’ll find in store this weekend. If you find another deal not listed please leave a comment letting us know what you found. You’ll know it’s an unadvertised deal because it will say Mfgr.’s Instant Rebate that expires 11/26. I have also posted the advertised Black Friday deals, the Black Friday TV deals,  and the November coupon book, which are all valid this weekend as well.

Costco Black Friday 2012 TV Deals

Black Friday TV Deals

I mentioned last week that Costco was having special TV deals for Black Friday that were going to be a surprise. For my faithful readers I was able to procure the list of pricing for these deals, and even better, they started today. That means you don’t need to wake up early Friday to get your discounted TV. The prices aren’t earthshattering, but you do get Costco Tech Support (via phone), and can purchase a SquareTrade warranty with it if you’d like. When possible I have linked to the Costco.com page for the TV so you can see the description and specs on them. I wouldn’t buy online if you can avoid it, since you will have to pay an extra $80 or so for Shipping and Handling. I have also posted the whole Black Friday ad and the November coupon book if you’d like to see those.
