Costco Coupons September 2015

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 October 2015

Just posted is the new October 2012 Costco coupon book. The link will allow you to view or download it. These coupons run from October 11th to November 4th. Once again it starts only 4 days after the currently validSeptember coupon book. Online chatter centers mostly around the Komachi 2 6-piece knife set, which I’ve heard great reviews about and should be a steal at $25 after coupon. Also, people are excited about the Little Giant ladder, and the Sonicare replacement brush heads. Diapers also don’t go on sale that often, so it can be a good chance to stock up on them. Overall, I think it’s not a great coupon month. For me, I might pick up the potstickers. I also own the Braun Series 5 shaver, and highly recommend it. The tire coupon is once again Michelin. Last month there were 3 pages of discounts requiring coupons, this month it’s back up to 4 pages, discounting my theory Costco is going to all instant coupons.

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.

Sony BDP-BX58 Blu-Ray Player Review

I recently purchased the Sony BDP-BX58 Blu-Ray player from Costco and thought I’d write my review of it. It is $99 through Sunday, when the coupons expire for the January Coupon Book. If you are on the fence about it, I’d say get it. You have 90 days to return it if you don’t like it. When researching Blu-Ray players I learned that many take a long time to load the disc initially. That is not the case at all with this player. It has many advanced features when compared to other Blu-Ray players as well, supporting Netflix, DLNA, Pandora, YouTube, and HuluPlus just to name a few. The specs also include built-in Wifi (so you can connect it to the internet) and 3D, if you have a 3D TV.

I tested the Netflix interface and in my opinion, it’s not as good as the interface on the Xbox. It was also a little laggy, and if you lose your connection and go back to the movie it will start from the beginning and not go back to where you left off, which is very frustrating. Hopefully that will be fixed in a future firmware upgrade. On the other hand, having DLNA is great. It easily saw my home desktop and presented all my movies for me to watch. Basically, DLNA allows you to stream movies, pictures, and photos from your home computers to the TV through the Blu-Ray player. The wireless signal seemed a little weak, so I would hardwire to the ethernet port if possible. If you have an external USB hard drive with a ton of movies on it you can also plug that into the unit and watch them on your TV that way. The BDP-BX58 model number is special to Costco, which is why you won’t find a lot of information on it. It is basically the BDP-S580, but comes with an HDMI cable. Overall, it’s a good unit at a great price, and with Sony continuing to put out new downloadable firmware updates for it, I think it will continue to be on the cutting edge. Do you have one? What do you think?

Costco Coupons August 2014

Starting next Thursday, August 7th, is the August 2014 Costco Coupon Book. Here is an early preview of it in case you want to see what to wait to buy until the coupons start or plan your shopping ahead of time. Clicking the link above will allow you to view, download or print the coupon book out. The July 2014 coupons are still valid through this Sunday. The new coupon book will run from Thursday August 7th through Sunday August 31st. As seems to be the new normal, there are no in-store items that require the coupon book or app (besides the usual tires, glasses, and photo center). 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 is something in this coupon book which I find a little unique. The Finish Powerball Tabs and Finish Jet-Dry are buy one get one free (BOGO), which makes them a great deal. Also of note is that Huggies are on sale, which makes them a pretty good deal as well. The discount on the Bounty paper towels is a little bigger than normal at $4 off and it’s a good time to stock up on Honey Bunches of Oats. I will try the Glad trash bags because I need some new ones and I’ve never tried them. I will also check my Ziploc inventory and stock up if I’m low. I could really use some more laundry detergent, but not sure if I want to try Tide or stick with Costco’s Kirkland Signature. I REALLY like the ZonePerfect bars, and was surprised when they went out of stock last month, but it looks like it’s because they redid the packaging, so I am very excited to see they are coming back. They come in Fudge Graham and Chocolate Peanut Butter and both flavors are fantastic! For the last month of two, the tire coupon is Bridgestone, which means Michelin is coming up in the September coupon book.

If you’ve bought something recently that goes on sale starting August 7th 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. What are you going to pick up out of the latest coupon book?

Free Trades for New Coupon

My wife and I decided to start a small RRSP and TFSA trading account on her behalf, basically to top up her pension. So, we had some thinking to do, which discount brokerage is best for her situation? To help with the decision, I dove back into the Million Dollar Journey archives and found my review on Canadian Discount Brokerages.

Here was our criteria:

  • Only a small initial deposit of $5,000;
  • No annual fees;
  • Low trading commissions;
  • Ability to settle funds in USD in registered accounts to reduce forex charges (typically up to 1.99% per conversion); and,
  • No need for mutual funds as we can use ETF’s instead.

The title probably gave it away, but from our criteria, we decided to go with Questrade. So far, I’m fairly impressed with what they offer for such low prices. We chose the $4.95 for 495 shares commission option which comes with free data feeds and no  annual/monthly fees (balance must be greater than $5k or there is a fee of $19.95/quarter).

The WebTrader Basic option (the free one) has a fairly intuitive interface with FREE real-time charts (US ONLY, CAD stocks have 15 min delay). This is a huge feature for me as not even CIBC’s Investors Edge had this. They also offer more expensive, non-free platforms for more aggressive traders.

The only downside that I’ve discovered so far is that after you place an order, you can’t “change” the order. You must “cancel”, and re-order the stock. This doesn’t cost any extra, but is a pain in the behind. I guess that I’m accustomed to the Interactive Broker interface where modifying your buy order is as simple as hitting the back space key to change the number.  Edit Oct 2011:  You can now “modify” your order once it’s been placed.

The sign up was quick and easy which required only a few minutes online and some hand signed paper work to be mailed in. Any questions that I had was quickly answered by the live chat option on the Questrade website. It only took Questrade 1 day to approve my application upon receiving it in the mail. Very impressive so far. Edit Oct 2011:  You can now digitally sign off on your application skipping the snail mail delay.

Update: Questrade now offers the lowest cost TFSA discount brokerage account in Canada.

Update: Questrade was the first brokerage in Canada to accept USD within an RRSP.  This is a huge advantage because now you can hold USD in your RRSP and reduce those dreaded FOREX fees.  We consistently use the USD RRSP to settle US stocks (and dividends) in USD without any added fees. This is perhaps one of the biggest advantages of using a Questrade RRSP.

UpdateQuestrade has improved their commission structure with democratic pricing.

Update: Million Dollar Journey readers have voted Questrade as their #1 discount brokerage.

Update:  We opened a TFSA with Questrade.

Update May 2013: Questrade now allows clients to purchase ETFs without any commission!

Update:  You can use DLR/DLR.U ETFs at Questrade to reduce your conversion fees from CAD to USD (reduces your fx fee from 1.99% to around 0.30%).

$50 in Free Trades for New Sign ups:

Questrade also offers a referral program. If you deposit at least $1k when you open an account from a referral, you will receive $50 in trading credit for the first 30 days of opening your account.

If you are considering opening a Questrade account and would like the $50 in free trades, sign up through the link below.  The link will bring you to a Questrade URL that will automatically recognize you as a referred client.  If you decide to sign up later or if you’ve already started an application, in the form field “Affiliate ID” or “Promotional Code” use MillionDollarJourney to get your $50 in free trades.

Sign up and get $50 in free trades with Questrade!

If you have any questions regarding the $50 trading credit or want to confirm your $50 referral after signing up, you can contact me here.

Costco iPhone 6 and 6+ in store

Starting on Launch Day (September 19th, 2014) you’ll be able to buy the iPhone 6 and 6+ in store at Costco. Supplies are very limited so you should definitely get there right when they open if you want one. There will also be a special discount deal available. You’ll get $20 off the list price. You’ll also receive a special accessories package, which from what I’ve heard will include a case, a car charger and a car mount. That is a great value considering Apple does not regularly discount their products. The case will only come in the special promotion tomorrow (Launch Day).

Your mileage may vary, but my local store will be doing a ticketing system. So, you show up, get a number, and then when they get to your number they’ll call you to the kiosk. This will prevent having a long line and allow you to shop (and sample!) around the store while waiting. They also said they’ll have no 128GB models and no space grey models. I think it will definitely vary from store to store. Some stores said they won’t get any 6 Plus iPhones in. They do expect some for AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. You will have to sign a new 2 year contract. One benefit you will get at California Costcos is that you won’t have to pay tax on the full retail price, unlike at Apple or another store. Lastly, I will warn you to make sure your grandfathered unlimited data plan will transfer over if you have one. It was not an option when people ordered through Costco online.

Costco Coupons October 2016

For your early viewing pleasure I have the October 2014 Costco Coupon Book available now. This gives you the chance to plan your upcoming shopping trips in advance and figure out what to wait to buy in the store. If you’d like to view, download, or print the coupon book out just click the link above. The September coupons are still valid through Sunday September 28th if you’d like to look at those deals as well. The new October coupon book will run from October 2nd through October 26th. Once again all items are Instant Savings, with the exception of Glasses, which will require a physical coupon book or the app. 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’s a few items of interest in this coupon book. The 46″ and 55″ Samsung Smart LED TV’s are both $130 off. If you’re in the market for a Dyson vacuum this could be a good time to get one at $70 off. The Dyson Hot + Cool Heater fan is very nice, although still probably too expensive for most despite the $65 off. I love the Braun Series 7 Shaver and highly recommend it. I also hear of interest in the Craisins and the Potstickers. As for myself, I may check out the Vizio Sound Bar. I like that it does Bluetooth and that the Subwoofer is wireless. I also really like the Head Multisport Gloves they get every year, and my last pair ripped, so I might get some at $3 off. I’ve been wanting to try the Kirkland Signature Ravioli Lasagna, so this will likely be the push I need to try it. As predicted, the tire coupon is once again Michelin. That means it will be Bridgestone in the November Costco coupon book.

If you’ve bought something recently that goes on sale starting October 2nd 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. What are you going to pick up out of the latest coupon book?

Costco Black Friday 2015 Ad

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.

Costco Black Friday 2015 Ad Scan

The three day Costco Black Friday 2014 weekend ad scan is now available. Clicking the link above will allow you to view and print the ad scan. The Black Friday deals will not only run on that Friday but also on Saturday and Sunday. Therefore, it starts November 28th and runs through November 30th. There are three total deal sections in this ad scan. The first is the Black Friday ads that are valid in Costco stores. The second is the online only deals, which run from November 27th to December 1st and encompass Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. Lastly, there are some additional savings for in-warehouse items from December 1st through December 14th. Don’t forget the Pre-Holiday Savings Event also will be running over that weekend as well.

Besides the fact that there isn’t a mad dash to get one of the two TV’s deeply discounted like at Wal-Mart, one exciting thing about Black Friday weekend at Costco is the annual cookbook giveaway. Starting Friday morning everyone who leaves Costco will get a free cookbook. By mid-day Saturday Costco is typically out of them, so it is quite a hot item. Look out for my cookbook giveaway here on the website as well!

There are a ton of good deals in the Black Friday 2014 Costco ad. I don’t have time to go over them all, so feel free to put a shoutout to what you like in the comments. The Google Chromecast is a great deal at $10 off, making it only $25 and you get $10 in Google Play credit in addition. The Nikon D3300 DSLR kit for $599 and the Sony A5000 for $449 are also good camera deals. The Blendtec 570 blender for $249 is a good deal if you don’t want to pay the extra needed to get a VitaMix. As for myself, I will likely get the kitchen bags, maybe a throw, and maybe the blu-ray player or the Chromecast.

As for the lack of TV deals expect another post with the unadvertised Black Friday TV deals, similar to last year. I think there are two reasons Costco does not advertise them. For one, they want to be able to negotiate with the vendors to get the lowest deals possible up to the last minute, and if they print deals way ahead of time they cannot change pricing. Secondly, they don’t want to have to compete with other stores on Black Friday weekend. They want the customers that know Costco has a good deal and a good warranty and that is enough for them. Leave a comment, let us know what you’re planning on picking up and what you think is a good deal!

Costco Christmas Trees 2015

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 treesbrought 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
  • Five 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

7.5 ft Christmas Tree box

12′ Pre-lit LED EZ Connect Dual Color Christmas Tree $599 (Item #915721)

  • 1,400 dual color LED lights
  • On/Off foot pedal
  • Six 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

In my opinion these trees are totally worth getting. You can see my 2011 Costco Christmas trees review or 2012 Costco Christmas trees review if you want to compare what they carried in the past and what I thought of those. The 7.5′ and 9′ artificial trees will likely sell out very quickly, so hurry on over to Costco if you have not gotten a tree yet. The same goes with the fresh cut noble firs.

Fresh Cut Noble Fir

7′ – 8′ Fresh Cut Noble Fir Christmas Tree $44.99 (Item #351892)

  • Live tree
  • Shipped in from Oregon
  • Cut down within the week
  • Farm grown
  • Carried only at select locations

The live Christmas trees are trucked in, and sell out quickly as well, due to their great price. Looking back at old posts I see the prices have not risen at all since at least 2011. You have to buy the tree wrapped, which is kind of odd, since most would want to pick out their exact tree, but you just have to trust that all the trees are great. Worst case scenario Costco has a pretty good return policy. Did you get a Costco tree this year? Does it meet your expectations?
