I have just published the May 2015 Costco Coupon Book for your viewing pleasure. It runs from May 7th through May 31st. Clicking the link above will allow you to view, download, or print out the coupons. The June coupon book will start on June 11th. I usually post them 6-7 days before they start. By taking an early look at the coupons you can see what is going to be on sale, and therefore wait to buy certain items, and plan out your next shopping trips a little better. This is a pretty big ad flyer, coming in at 18 pages long.

The May coupon book really gets me excited for the summer! There are lots of sunscreens and bug repellant. Picnic packs, coolers, and patio furniture really round out the summer discounts. One interesting thing to note is that the Coppertone sunscreen pack no longer has the large tube of sunscreen, and instead has 3 spray bottles. In my opinion I think the spray bottles do not last long enough, and so I will no longer be purchasing it. The Subaru gas pressure washer is a great deal at only $269.99. Lots of allergy medicine also on sale for the pollen season. As for myself, the only thing that stands out to me is the uncured turkey bacon. I know it’s more healthy than pork bacon, just not sure how it compares in taste. Also, the Cello cheese tray is great for a picnic, and I love that it has smoked gouda in it, so if the occasion arises, I’ll definitely look to pick one of those up. The tire coupons are back to Michelin for the next two months.
Do the May coupons make you excited for summer? What are the can’t miss items in this flyer?
April 3rd, 2015
I have now posted the upcoming April 2015 Costco Coupon Book if you would like to get an early look at it. It is valid from April 9th to May 3rd. Clicking the link above will allow you to view, download, or print out the coupons. Once again there was a week break between the March coupon book and the April coupon book. That way the new coupon book will lineup within the month of April a little better. The May coupons will have no break between. If you’re looking to go on a shopping trip soon you can plan ahead of time by looking at this ad now, and wait to buy things that will be going on sale soon. Much like last month, this Costco flyer is also 17 pages. 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!
As usual, there’s some interesting items in the April coupon book. The usual deli item in the flyer is the Chicken Alfredo pasta. An item that’s likely never been on sale before is the Kirkland Signature Butter Croissants, which make great sandwiches by the way! The Parmesan Reggiano is quite pricey in my opinion, so it’s nice to see it at $3 off. One pound would probably last you a while too. I’m most excited about the ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars. They are really tasty and $5 is a big percentage off of the normal price. I’ll also be interested in the Ling Ling Potstickers. One item on sale that I highly recommend is the Kirkland Signature Environmentally Responsible Dish Soap. It is the best dish soap I’ve ever tried. It stays foamy for a really long time, and doesn’t require a lot of soap to be effective. The tire coupon is Bridgestone once again, and will switch back to Michelin in May.
What are your thoughts on this months Costco coupons? Which items are you going to buy that were not mentioned?
February 26th, 2015
Just released is the March 2015 Costco Coupon Book. It will run from March 5th through March 29th. Clicking the link above will allow you to view, download, or print out the coupons. The reason there was a week break between the February coupon book and the March coupon book is that Costco likes the coupons to lineup with the months. The April coupon book will start April 9th. We post the ad early so that you can wait to buy items that will be on sale and you can plan your next shopping trip a little better. This is one of the longer Costco flyers at 17 pages long. 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 are quite a few interesting items in the March coupon book. First of all, there’s the Kirkland Signature diapers, which don’t go on sale very often. Another item that rarely gets discounted is the Honey Bunches of Oats. The Braun shaver is one of the best you can buy. It seems like every month there is one deli entree on coupon and this month that is the ravioli lasagna, which has been discounted once before. In my opinion it’s worth getting, although a little salty. As for myself, I likely won’t pickup anything. Also worth noting is that Chobani greek yogurt is on sale, which I’m excited about because my store hasn’t carried it in a while. The tire coupon is back to Bridgestone for this month and April.

January 22nd, 2015
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 March coupon book will begin on March 5th if you’d like to take a look at that one. The February coupons are 16 pages long. 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!
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. 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!
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?
Costco Pre-Holiday Savings Event (Nov. 21st to Dec. 1st)
Costco Black Friday Ad Scan (Nov. 28th to 30th)
November 5th, 2014
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.
