Costco Black Friday 2013 Unadvertised Deals

Yamaha Black Friday discounted price tag

It is hard to fathom that Costco would mark down a lot of items and not advertise that they did so, but that’s exactly how they operate around Black Friday. Here is a list of most of the unadvertised marked down items. This will vary slightly from store to store. There are also the Costco Black Friday TV deals and the December coupon book that are both valid during this time, as well as the standard Black Friday ad that has been passed out at the door for the last couple of weeks.

Costco Black Friday 2013 TV Deals

Samsung TV deals

While it took some work, I was able to acquire the 2013 list of Black Friday TV deals at Costco. I mentioned last week when I posted the 2013 Black Friday ad that much like last year there would be a bunch of televisions that would be on sale over Thanksgiving weekend, although unadvertised. It doesn’t make sense to me as to why Costco would not advertise these great deals, except maybe they’re hoping the anticipation and hype will draw shoppers in clamoring for the unknown. I’ve also posted the non-tv unadvertised Black Friday deals as well. The only way to know what items are deals are to look at the price tags and look for Manufacturer’s Instant Rebates. The bottom right of the price tag will have a print date on it, most likely it should be 11/24/13. Another older print date would imply that the deal has been out for longer and is probably not one of the Black Friday TV specials that started November 24th. A lot of these deals are also available on Costco.com, but then you’d have to pay about $80 for shipping. The advantage to buying a TV at Costco is that it comes with a 2 year warranty, which includes awesome tech support, you can buy a SquareTrade warranty for up to an additional 3 years if you’d like, and you can return it within 90 days if you decide you don’t like it. As a reminder, these deals are live now, so no need to wait until Black Friday. I’ve also linked to the Costco.com pages so you can see the specs on the TV when available.

Costco Coupons December 2013 (11/21/2013 – 12/15/2013)

Costco Coupon Book December 2013 Cover

Valid starting today is the December 2013 Costco Coupon Book. Clicking the link above will allow you to view, download, and print the coupons if you’d like to. It will be valid from November 21st to December 15th. What is interesting is that the Costco coupons this week ended Wednesday for the November coupons and start Thursday for the December coupons. There are no days between the two. This coupon book also complements the Black Friday deals that start that Friday of Thanksgiving week (11/29/2013). That goes along with the Black Friday weekend unadvertised deals and TV deals. While most of the items on sale don’t require any coupon, some will have a blue arrow at the top of them, which means you need the booklet or app to get the discount. Remember, the booklet says that additional books will NOT be available at the warehouse, which is a change from the past. 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!

For the second month in a row the coupon book has all the in-store coupons as Instant Savings, and there are three coupons that require a separate coupon (has the blue arrow). There are four pages of Online-Only offers. Once again you’ll probably be disappointed after looking through this coupon book. There aren’t that many great deals, nor much to be excited about. Quite a few items would make good Christmas gifts. 26 items are Televisions and Computers, which is a lot. There are also a lot of other electronics to round out the coupon book. The Disney DVD’s always make good gifts as well. As for myself, there are no items that I think I will be picking up. For the second month in a row the tire coupon is for Bridgestone. Expect Michelin next month.

You can download the Costco app if you didn’t get the coupon book mailed to you, and show the cashier your coupons from your phone. Also, at some locations the cashier will have the coupons already and automatically scan it for you. I  heard they are getting more strict on this though. These coupons will not work in store, as you need the barcode. Read more if you’d like to see a list of items and their after coupon prices. Have you tried any of the items in this coupon book? What did you think?

Costco Black Friday 2013 Deals and Ad Scan

Costco Black Friday 2013 ad

The most popular Costco ad of the year is now available for your viewing pleasure. The 2013 Costco Black Friday Ad is available to see, print, or download from this link. The first page of deals is valid from November 24th to December 2nd, while the other 8 pages are valid only on Black Friday weekend (November 29th to December 1st). Pages 2-5 are in store coupons while pages 6-9 are online-only offers. No deal requires an actual coupon, all deals are what Costco calls “Instant Savings”. The December coupon book will also be valid over this time period if you’d like to use those coupons as well.

It is weird that the first page advertises “Instant Savings on Samsung TVs” yet there are no TVs in the ad. Costco did something similar last year and had a bunch of TV deals that were unadvertised. I expect another circular that includes TV deals. I will post those coupons as soon as I get them. Also, the December coupon book begins November 21st, so there are some deals in there that overlap with Black Friday. Costco will open at 9am for Black Friday. Some stores will open early, with hours from 8:30am to 8:30pm. I would suggest calling your stores membership department to confirm what time they’re opening that day.

There are actually not a lot of great deals in this ad scan. Many prices are on par with Amazon and other retailers. The best deal may be the Dyson DC50, which after $100 off, should be around $299. The HP Envy TouchSmart 15.6″ Laptop for $799 after coupon is also a pretty good deal. Besides that, people like the Samsung Sound Bar, the Nikon D3200, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. However, it sounds like you can pickup the Galaxy Tab 3 at that price at any retailer on Black Friday. Also, don’t forget you get a free Costco Cookbook on Black Friday. These usually run out by mid-day on Saturday, so make sure to stop by and pick one up!

Costco BBQ Beef Brisket Sandwich Nutrition Facts and Calories

bbq beef brisket wrapper

Many of you may be wondering how many calories there are in the delectable BBQ beef brisket sandwich found in the food court of Costco. The good news is that it’s less than the Turkey and Provolone sandwich, the Carne Asada bake, and the Chicken Bake. The beef brisket sandwich has 710 calories in it. The rest of the nutrition facts are as follows:

  • 710 Calories
  • 33 g Fat (total)
  • 11 g Saturated Fat
  • 9 g Polyunsaturated Fat
  • 12 g Monounsaturated Fat
  • 1 g Trans Fat
  • 75 mg Cholesterol
  • 1,630 mg Sodium
  • 0 mg Potassium
  • 76 g Total Carbs
  • 2 g Dietary Fiber
  • 40 g Sugars
  • 28 g Protein

What do you think? Are these numbers about what you’d expect from the sandwich? I know when I took off the paper wrapping and saw that it was stained with grease/fat I figured the sandwich was going to not be that great for me. If you want to know what others think of the sandwich, read the BBQ beef brisket sandwich reviews. Also, I have a list of which locations carry the sandwich if you’re curious.

Costco Coupons November 2013 (10/30/2013 – 11/20/2013)

November 2013 Costco Coupon Book Cover

Starting on Wednesday the November 2013 Costco coupon book will be live. Clicking the link above will allow you to view or download the coupons if you’d like to. It is valid from October 30th to November 20th. It is very unusual that the book starts on a Wednesday and not a Thursday. Also, it squeezes in right before Thanksgiving week, and therefore Black Friday. I expect another special Black Friday coupon book that following week after this one expires. There will likely be an independent TV specials coupon book as well. Keep checking back here to see all the specials as soon as I get them. While most of the items on sale don’t require any coupon, some will have a blue arrow at the top of them, which means you need the booklet or app to get the discount. Remember, the booklet says that additional books will NOT be available at the warehouse, which is a change from the past. 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!

An interesting thing about this coupon book is that all the in-store items are Instant Savings, and they all have a buying limit on them. Previously Costco would only put limits on certain items. I like that the 12 packs of playing cards have a limit of 98, which is effectively 1,176 decks of playing cards. This seems like an outrageous limit to me. People seem interested in the Gold Toe Socks, which go from $9.99 to $6.99. That is a good price for 4 pairs of socks. I have a bunch of them and do like them quite a bit. Other items of interest include the Lindt Lindor Truffles and the French Onion Soup. They demo the French Onion Soup a lot, so it’s definitely worth a taste to see if you like it. Some people have said the coupons this month are pretty terrible, and while I don’t agree, I would say that I’m not looking forward to buying anything in this November booklet. Actually, it is time for me to buy some tires at Costco and I’m hoping they have some Bridgestones that match my car, because I can’t wait two months for the Michelin coupon to come back.

You can download the Costco app if you didn’t get the coupon book mailed to you, and show the cashier your coupons from your phone. Also, at some locations the cashier will have the coupons already and automatically scan it for you. I  heard they are getting more strict on this though. These coupons will not work in store, as you need the barcode. Read more if you’d like to see a list of items and their after coupon prices. Have you tried any of the items in this coupon book?

Costco Coupons October 2013 (10/3/2013 – 10/27/2013)

October 2013 Costco Coupon Book Cover

For your viewing pleasure I have posted the new October 2013 Costco coupon book. This gives you a chance to see it before you get it in the mail, can view it online, or in the app. The above link will allow you to view or download the coupons if you’d like, and is valid from October 3rd to October 27th. Also, valid until Sunday is the September 2013 coupon book if you haven’t seen that. While most of the items on sale don’t require any coupon, some will have a blue arrow at the top of them, which means you need the booklet or app to get the discount. Remember, the booklet says that additional books will NOT be available at the warehouse, which is a change from the past. 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!

Not much to write home about in this coupon book. Some are excited about the Purina cat food, which should be $14.49 after coupon, which comes out to approximately $0.40 per can. Another item of interest is the Kai Pure Komachi 2 Knives, which are only $24.99. I heard great reviews about them last year when they were on sale, and are priced at $60 on Amazon. Lastly, there is a lot of interest in the 80″ Vizio TV, which is $600 off, which should make it $3,299. As for myself, I am picking up the Braun Series 5 Razor. I bought one last year and it is SO much better than my old Norelco. The shaver will be $100 after $20 coupon. The tire coupon is Michelin for the second month in a row. That means you should expect Bridgestone next month.

You can download the Costco app if you didn’t get the coupon book mailed to you, and show the cashier your coupons from your phone. Also, at some locations the cashier will have the coupons already and automatically scan it for you. I  heard they are getting more strict on this though.

Costco Coupons September 2013 (9/5/13 – 9/29/13)

September 2013 Costco Coupon Book Cover

Here is the early preview of the upcoming September 2013 Costco coupon book. See it before you get it in the mail or can view it in the app so that you don’t buy something this week that will be on coupon starting next Thursday. The link above will allow you to view or download the coupons, which run from September 5th until September 29th. Valid for two more days is the August 2013 coupon book if you’d like to review it before it expires on Sunday. As I mentioned last month, the booklet has a new design to it, focusing on using the mobile app to present your coupons. While most of the items on sale don’t require any coupon, some will have a blue arrow at the top of them, which means you need the booklet or app to get the discount. Remember, the booklet says that additional books will NOT be available at the warehouse, which is a change from the past. 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!

Not every coupon book is a home run for everyone. We all buy different things at Costco, and get excited over different things on discount. For September it seems like most excitement is over the KS Laundry Detergent and the Naked Juice Value Pack. Usually the wiper blades become buy one get one free in the fall, so a bummer that they’re only $3 off. Still, only a difference of a dollar or two. As for myself, I am intrigued by the Naked juice, but I want to know how it compares at the per ounce cost to other juices. I like the bourbon chicken, but don’t want to eat it all myself so I’ll probably pass on that. I might pick up the Torta rolls and give those a try. I’ll also compare the Muscle Milk powder to the CytoSport Whey Protein they sell and see which one I want to pick up. The tire coupon is back to Michelin after two months on Bridgestone.

You can download the Costco app if you didn’t get the coupon book mailed to you, and show the cashier your coupons from your phone. Also, at some locations the cashier will have the coupons already and automatically scan it for you. I  heard they are getting more strict on this though. These coupons will not work in store, as you need the barcode. Have you tried any of the items in this coupon book? What did you think?

Costco Coupons August 2013 (8/8/13 – 9/1/13)

August 2013 Costco Coupon Book Cover

This Thursday is the start of the August 2013 Costco coupon book. This link will allow you to view or download the coupons, which run from August 8th until September 1st. There are only four days between the July 2013 coupon book, which ended Sunday, and this one, which starts on Thursday. Costco has completely redesigned the coupon book this month. All over the coupon book it talks about how you can use the new Costco app to show your coupons in store. There are not barcodes on the back of every coupon, but instead just a couple barcodes in the first two pages of the book, which are good for the whole book.  Items that are not “instant savings” have a blue arrow on the top of them saying “Book or App required”, in which there are 18 throughout the book. Also, the coupon book makes sure to point out all of the items that are available on Costco.com, with a red box which says “Also Available at Costco.com”. Lastly, the book says that additional books will NOT be available at the warehouse, which is a change from the past. 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!

Most would describe this as a good coupon book. Hardly ever are diapers on sale, and with $6 off Huggies, it is a remarkable deal. Even those without children are considering buying them to stock up for when that day comes! Also, the Spinach and Mozzarella Ravioli are a great product at regular price. As for myself, I may buy the IZZE Sparkling Juice, as my spouse is a big fan. We could also use some more Dixie Plates, so it will be nice to save $2 on those. Bridgestone is back for the second month in a row, so I would expect next month it would go back to Michelin.

You can download the Costco app if you didn’t get the coupon book mailed to you, and show the cashier your coupons from your phone. Also, at some locations the cashier will have the coupons already and automatically scan it for you. I  heard they are getting more strict on this though. These coupons will not work in store, as you need the barcode. Have you tried any of the items in this coupon book? What did you think?
