The Best (and Worst) Deals at Costco

09/23/2014. This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure Policy.

The Best and Worst Deals at Costco- your quick reference guide on what to look for and what to avoid.



Wondering if a Costco membership is worth the price?  Or wondering if you are really getting good deals when you shop?  It can certainly be confusing to shop… you need to do quick mental math to compare bulk sizes to standard grocery sizes. I find that impossible when the store is super crowded and I am trying to get through the crowds and just get the heck out.  Usually my kids are whining or poking each other and really it is all I can do to keep them happy, check off my list and not have cart rage when people stop to chat or clutter up the aisles waiting for samples.  (Grab n go people, Grab n go!)

So I thought I’d make an easy guide for you with some of the best deals I find at Costco AND some of the things that I personally think are overpriced.

I have been a coupon blogger for about 5 years now and I have gone through stages of heavily using coupons and following sales in stores to just occasionally using coupons and trying to simply buy things at good prices.

At this phase of my life, I seem to have become a professional chauffeur for the kiddos in addition to my other responsibilities and so that means I need to figure out ways to save money on groceries without spending as much time cutting coupons or running to different stores.  I do find myself in Costco about once every three weeks or so stocking up on things.

So this is a list that is just my opinion after watching prices as a coupon blogger for several years.  You may find some slight variation in pricing at your local store.

Costco: Organic Coupon Deals 9/3-9/29

09/02/2013. This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure Policy.

When I was at my local Costco they were handing out  books for coupon deals on Organic foods. There are some great deals to be had. I cannot guarantee that every store will have these deals it may be worth checking out the next time you hit your local Costco.

Update:  Looks like this is only available in Northern CA and Nevada Costco stores.

These deals will run September 3rd-September 29th.

I will be grabbing the Honest Kids drinks for sure.  I am not a big fan of juice boxes and pouches and such but I do like to take these for soccer games for the kiddos.  They are also great on trips because you can freeze them and they serve as ice packs.

New Costco Coupons

08/23/2013. This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure Policy.

 

If you are a Costco shopper, you might be happy to note that Ibotta coupons are now available at Costco stores!

This is good news to me because every Costco trip seems to add up faster then I would like!

So if you are not familiar with Ibotta, it is a free app that you can download.  You will find offers that change all the time.  You can go and save the offer you would like and make sure to note the expiration date of the coupon.

Then go to the store and buy the item.  When you get home, you will redeem your coupon via the app.  It is very simple- just take a picture of your receipt and you are on your way.  They will hold onto the coupon value- say it is $1.00 off Cheerio’s cereal- you can redeem and then $1.00 will be in your Ibotta account.

You can cash out the account and they will send your money to your Paypal address.  It is very simple to do!

Here are the coupons as of posting:

RITZ Crackers Any variety – 3 lb. or larger Offer only redeemable at Costco. $.75
Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies – 3 lb. or larger Offer only redeemable at Costco $.75
Red Bull Energy Drink Regular or Sugar Free – 24 ct. – 8.4 oz. cans Offer only redeemable at Costco $1.00
OxiClean Stain Remover or Detergent – 56 oz. or larger Offer only redeemable at Costco $1.00

But again those will change all the time.

You can register for Ibotta here and if you want even more information about how this works, check out the article here.

And if you want to see the regular monthly Costco coupon book deals check here.

Costco Coupon Deals July 11th-August 4th

07/11/2013. This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure Policy.

 

The new Costco Coupon Deals for July 11th-August 4th are out!

These are all prices from my store so you may find some variation at your store.  These coupon books come in the mail or you can often find them at the customer service desk in store.

For the items listed as instant discounts there is no coupon needed. The items listed as Costco coupons, you just need to scan the booklet at checkout and all the coupons will come off. (There is no need to actually cut coupons.) Typically the cashiers will automatically do this for you.

Here are the top 10 deals I see this month:
