Pay with Costco Cash Card (no membership required)
If you want to skip the annual fee to shop at Costco, find a friend that has a membership to buy you a Costco Cash Card. You don’t need a membership to shop. Just show the cash card to get in the door.
Stack coupons with rebate apps
You can use rebate apps like ibotta, Checkout 51 and other to save even more on top of Costco coupons.
National Vs Local Markdowns
Most prices will end in a $0.09. Other prices are generally things the store is trying to get rid of. Prices that end in $0.97 are markdowns found nationally, whereas if the price ends in $0.00, these are typically local markdowns.
Items That Won’t be Restocked
If you see an asterisk in the upper right corner of the price sticker, it means the store will no longer stock that item. So be sure to stock up if you see the asterisk.
Most people know that you can buy discounted movie tickets at Costco. So why are you still paying full price? Usually about $8 each!
