Costco Simplifies Their Coupons: No Clipping Required!
Posted on Thursday, October 3rd, 2013 at 3:13 pm
Costco already offers huge savings on bulk quantities of your favorite products. Members are lucky enough to receive exclusive coupons each month to help you save even more on your home essentials! Starting in August, Costco began rolling out their new coupon program, which makes life so much easier!
Their new coupon books feature a “master” barcode at the beginning of the book. Instead of clipping a bunch of individual coupons, you simply show the master barcode to your cashier, and the savings you qualify for are automatically deducted from your total! This makes your shopping experience much more streamlined and convenient!
They’ve also introduced a new Costco coupon app for iPhones and Androids. Instead of bringing the coupon book with you, you can simply pull up the “master” barcode in the Costco app, and your cashier can scan directly from your phone. This is perfect for those dreaded times you get all the way to the store and realize you left your coupon book at home. As a result of this new program, Costco will no longer provide additional coupon books at their customer service counter. If you left your book at home, you’re out of luck. This is when your Coscto smartphone app would save the day!
The Costco app does more than simply offer a coupon barcode. It also allows you to access online product descriptions, alerts you of special offers and helps you locate the nearest Costco. With it you can refill and check prescriptions or upload photos for printing, and much more!
