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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Costco Coupons July 2013 (7/11/13 – 8/4/13)

July 2013 Costco coupon book cover

Starting today is the new July 2013 Costco coupon book. Clicking the link will allow you to view or download the coupons, which run from July 11th until August 4th. The June 2013 coupon book just ended on Sunday and these coupons began 4 days later. There are also roughly three pages of coupons requiring barcodes. 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 a couple of items that stick out. For one, the Folgers instant coffee is only on sale about once a year, so if this is an item you’ve been waiting for to go on sale, here’s your chance. Another item is the Ion Block Rocker, which was last on sale a year ago. I missed that deal and won’t make that mistake again. This Block Rocker is an updated model that includes Bluetooth capability. There are also lots of cleaning products, between the laundry detergents, dishwashing soap, and more. The tire coupon has rotated back to Bridgestone. It seems like Costco is now rotating every two months.

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. You can also now download the Costco app and show the cashier your coupons from the app! Have you tried any of the items in this coupon book? What did you think?

 

Costco Coupons June 2013 (6/13/13 – 7/7/13)

June 2013 Costco Coupon Book Cover

Now being mailed is the June 2013 Costco coupon book. Clicking the link will allow you to view or download the coupons, which run from June 13th to July 7th. The May 2013 coupon book just ended last Sunday and this one begins 11 days later. There are only three pages of coupons requiring barcodes, as the rest are 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!

Each month it seems like the coupon book is getting a little less exciting than the previous month. There are a lot of drinks to choose from, including Vita Coconut water, KS Diet Green Tea, Perrier Sparkling water, San Pellegrino, KS VitaRain, Starbucks Refreshers, and Sobe Lifewater. If you’re looking to restock, Bounty paper towels and Charmin toilet paper is on sale. No Kirkland Signature paper towels or toilet paper. As for me, I like the VitaRains, so I may get some more of those, and might try the Starbucks Refreshers if they are cheap enough. The tire coupon is Michelin for the second month. I’m pretty sure next month will be 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.

Costco Coupons May 2013 (5/9/13 – 6/2/13)

May 2013 Costco coupon book cover page

Although a little late, here is the May 2013 Costco coupon book. Clicking the link will allow you to view or download the coupons, which run from May 9th to June 2nd. The April 2013 coupon book just ended on Sunday and this one begins only four days later. There are only three pages of coupons requiring barcodes, as the rest are 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!

I would say the response to this coupon book has been underwhelming. People are curious about the Simpson pressure washer but that’s about it. The Coppertone sun screen is a good deal for the upcoming summer, as well as the Off! Insect Repellant and the Chlorine tabs. There is some excitement about the Huggies Diapers, which do not go on sale very often, and could be a good opportunity to stock up. The Samsung 55″ LED HDTV is $799 AC, which is a great deal for a 55″ TV. The HTC One phone is very popular right now, and it’s a pretty good deal at $129 AC. As for myself, I might pick up the Coppertone Sport, but that’s probably it. The tire coupon is now back to 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.
