If you are thinking of joining Costco or already have a network membership, you just do not understand much about all the privileges that it gives, then these tips will help you save more money than you saved before.

  1. Return policy

Costco has one of the most generous return policies. Thus, if you have ever been unhappy with a purchase for any reason at any time, you can usually and should demand a refund or replacement.

Costco states that you can get a full refund on anything. The only caveat is that some types of goods must be returned within 90 days from the date of purchase for a full refund.

  1. Pharmacies Costco

You do not have to be a member of Costco to use online pharmacies.

The Medication Guide can be found on the Costco website to find out if there are any medications in pharmacies that you or other family members are taking. If they have medicine, you can call your nearest Costco pharmacy for pricing.

Sometimes the prices of medicines in the pharmacies of the wholesale network are even lower than the payment of insurance for these medicines.

  1. Buying a drink

Buying alcohol at Costco is usually a great way to save money. In fact, saving on alcohol is one of the best reasons to buy a membership, although this is not required.

The best thing about buying alcohol is that some states do not even need membership. Depending on state laws, you can go and buy goods at a discount without paying for membership.

  1. Ibotta

While Costco does not accept coupons, Ibotta's free mobile app offers refunds for purchases at Costco.

If you don’t have an app yet, download it and select Costco from the list of retailers to find out which Ibotta offers money back offers for Costco purchases at the moment.

  1. Overstock

Costco offers periodic discounts - in addition to already low prices. The retailer calls them "warehouse savings", but in essence it is a sale.

Costco arranges new sales approximately once a month. Therefore, always check the Warehouse Savings web page before driving to the nearest store or buying anything online.

  1. Discount tickets and gift cards

Check out Costco Gift Cards and Ticket Webpage. You'll find plenty of savings on everything from movie tickets and restaurants to entry tickets to the theme park.

Dear ForumDaily readers!

Thank you for staying with us and trusting! Over the past four years, we have received a lot of grateful feedback from readers who have been helped by our materials to arrange life after moving to the USA, to get a job or education, to find housing or to arrange a child in kindergarten. We are glad to help you during the immigration period, which can be quite difficult.

Now we want to ask you for support. Quality journalism is quite expensive. After a sharp reduction in advertising revenues from Facebook, our revenues do not cover the costs of editorial content, which jeopardizes the continuous operation of the site. We do not introduce a paid subscription, as many US media do, and provide access to all our materials for free, because we understand how important it is for Russian-speaking immigrants to receive reliable information in their native language. $ 5, $ 10, $ 20 - any amount you share with us will help the site survive, which means we can continue to provide useful information to thousands of immigrants. Support quality journalism! We believe in the power of our readers!

Always yours, ForumDaily!
