Ten Little-Known Ways to Save at Costco
Costco is one of the most popular retail chains in the US, with over 80 million members willing to pay between $55 and $110 a year to shop there. Although the chain claims to offer the lowest prices, there are 10 more little-known ways to save money on shopping at the club.
Their list was published edition aol.
1. Pay attention to prices
Keep a close eye on prices at the Costco Club. In addition to regularly appearing prices ending in 99 cents, there are also prices ending in 97 cents, which is more beneficial when buying in bulk. Prices that end in 9 (for example, 3,59 8,69 15,79 cents), except for those ending in ..,99, indicate a special offer from the manufacturer and are more favorable compared to retail prices for the same product in other networks.
2. Take advantage of price adjustments
Costco has an unspoken price adjustment policy. Its essence is that members can receive a refund for the difference in price if it has decreased within two weeks after they made a purchase. Therefore, keep receipts - especially if you buy seasonal goods before the collapse in prices for them.
In addition, Costco has a liberal policy of returning goods, so that you can easily return the purchased product at the old price and re-acquire it at a corrected cost.
3. Shop without club membership
You do not have to pay a membership fee to shop at Costco with discounts. You just have to have a friend who is a member of the Costco club and is ready to receive a special Costco card for you.
Non-members can use these cards to make purchases at Costco, they can even exceed the amount deposited on this card by paying the difference in cash.
4. Use any credit card on Costco.com
Previously, Costco accepted only American Express cards for payment, but since April 2016, the network has started cooperation with Visa to pay for goods.
You don't have to worry about which cards you use when shopping at Costco.com because it accepts all cards. Thus, you will be able to receive bonuses for cashless payments, which are offered by most US banks.
5. Get inexpensive alcohol without club membership
Costco allows non-club members to purchase inexpensive alcohol, especially wines.
In addition, you can get cheap prescription drugs at the Costco Pharmacy even if you are not a member and live in a state that prohibits pharmacies from requiring a customer to be a member of any clubs.
6. Look at the sale of returned goods
Costco is dedicating multiple shelves in stores to items that have been returned but are still salable, instead of returning them to the supplier or destroying them. Naturally, they are sold at significant discounts. As a rule, these shelves are located near the automotive goods, household or sports departments.
7. Ordering flowers through Costco suppliers
If you're planning a wedding or other event that requires a lot of flowers, you can get a good discount on bulk flower purchases from Costco. And if you buy flowers through the supplier Costco, you can get very competitive prices.
8. Use the free body diagnostics
Costco stores are home to medical centers where members can get free diagnostics for diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and lung disease. On its website, in the Health and Wellness section, the network publishes a schedule of when, where, and what type of diagnostics will take place.
9. Pay attention to travel deals
Costco members receive special offers on cruises, car rentals and package trips.
10. Get Cash Back for membership
Club members purchasing Gold Star Executive Membership for 120 dollars, they get 2% of the money spent on purchases annually.
