I’m a huge fan of Costco and we the vast majority of our shopping there.
In fact, I’d argue that close to 50% of our food budget is spent at Costco. Most of what we buy there is fruit, meat, and other produce because the daily prices are simply unbeatable. We have a large family so what may be a bulk purchase for someone else is a daily need for us!
The Costco coupon book tends to be on other staples that we need (toilet paper, tissues) or frozen foods we indulge in, like those fantastic dino nuggets our kids seem to devour like actual dinosaurs.
Each month, Costco sends out a coupon book for all the member-only savings you can get in the warehouse as well on online at Costco.com.
If you’d like to see what in it for March, look below:

Costco Coupon Book: Valid March 8 – April 2, 2023
Remember, this is not a traditional coupon book in that you don’t have to cut anything out or bring anything to the register. It’s just a list of savings, though everyone calls it a “coupon book.”
Here are the pages in the March 2023 edition of the Costco Coupon book:
Helpful Costco Shopping Tips
A few last minute tips for your next trip to Costco – these are on top of the Costco hacks we shared in a previous post.
Ask for a Price Adjustment
Costco sends the coupon book about a week or so before the discounts are “active” and sometimes you may want to purchase something ahead of the price discount. If you purchase something within 30 days of a price change, you can always bring your receipt to Customer Service and ask for a price adjustment.
This is great if you aren’t paying attention and discover that you bought something that would’ve been on sale in the next coupon book! The only downside is you have to wait in the line, which can be tricky during high traffic times!
Use the Right Credit Card
The Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi is a great credit card because of the various cash back categories – 4% on gas purchases, 3% at restaurants, and 2% at Costco itself. But you can use any Visa card at Costco so while the Costco Anywhere Card gives you 2% at Costco, you may want to use another one if you want to take advantage of a big credit card bonus or something similar. These are the best credit cards to use at Costco.
Costco Offers Sales in Cycles
One thing you’ll notice with the coupons is that the same products will tend to appear over and over again, often with a little break in between. There are some products that tend to always be in the coupon book, like vitamins and other supplements. Then there are those that make infrequent appearances, like specific brands of electronics or prepared foods. If you’re careful, you can avoid bulk buying too much if you pay attention to the cycles.
And don’t shop hungry!
