10 Genius Costco Hacks Every Shopper Should Know

Look for prices ending in .97

If you look at the price tags at Costco, you can tell if an item is a really good deal. For instance, items whose prices end in.97 mean that they are on sale.

Buy Kirkland brand products

Kirkland products are often manufactured by well-known brands, which means you can get quality products in different packaging at a lower price.

Fuel up

Costco offers competitive prices on gas for members. If you’re located near a Costco gas station, you could save a decent chunk of change just by filling up there.

Use the right credit card

Another easy Costco hack that all shoppers can take advantage of is the potential to earn cash back on their purchases.

Buy discounted gift cards

Costco offers a variety of discounted gift cards you can use to save money at other retailers, and some of the deals are available to non-members.

Get your rotisserie chicken

Even as other stores raise their prices, Costco rotisserie chickens remain $4.99, a deal that attracts new members and gets people into the store on a regular basis.

Compare prices to the grocery store

Even if you have a Costco membership, you should compare prices for items on your shopping list with other stores in the area.

Get money back from sales

Costco has a generous price adjustment policy. If you buy an item on Costco.com and the price drops within 30 days, you can request a price adjustment online.
