There are so many ways to save crazy coupons, I’m here with the secrets to saving at Costco. So many people are nervous about shopping at Costco, because it costs an annual fee to shop here, but we’re going to talk about the ways to save at Costco by taking you through the store and sharing our best tips.
We know that we can’t use the coupons from the newspapers, but you’re going to be shocked at all the other ways, here’s the secret of shopping at Costco without a membership. What you need to do is to have somebody who has a Costco membership to buy you a cash card, this is like a gift card that you can use on anything in the store, and you don’t have to be a member to use it.
So you come to the door, show them this instead of your Costco card, and then you use it to pay easily, let me tell you what the stick with these warehouse clubs are and how they get prices so low.
They have 3,800 to 4,000 different products at the store, and a traditional super center might have up to 250,000, so while Wal-Mart has almost everything you can think of, Costco narrows it down, they’re selective with under 4,000 items and they’re able to order in bulk which will save your money.
In fact, Costco guarantees that almost none of their items are marked up over 14%, comparing to 20 to 35% of other stores. You thought you couldn’t stack coupons at Costco, but now you can be with their instant manufacturer rebates. You’re saving six dollars, and by downloading the snap app, you can save an additional three dollars, remember that you can use relay apps.
Like I bought it, check out the shop, Miam berry cart and snap, so download those and get that extra savings. So if you shop at Costco, you’ll notice that most prices end in a nine, that’s just their regular price, almost everything ends in a nine. If you see something different than that, like a 697 or the $20 even, that means it’s a product that the store is trying to get rid of.
So they’re clearing it out, it’s like a manager or a store markdown, look for those prices and when you see them, you know that it’s a good time to buy. Not only does Costco have great prices on new ink cartridges, I think you don’t know they fill your old cartridges here over five ramps and dozens of different cartridges.
You can come to the photo, and they’ll give you a price sheet, bring you old cartridge, so they know exactly which one it is and they can fill it for you. It starts at 7:49, some cartridges are at 9:49 or 10:49, but that’s one of the best deals that we’ve found on reusable ink. One of the best secrets is to shop in their store brand.
Kirkland Signature is probably the best store brand on the market, and it is comparable or even better than the name-brand. Sometimes it is made in the same factory or similar factories with others, I heard that it is made in the same factory with Duracell with a different wrapper. So why would you pay more for almost the same item? Check out Kirkland Signature.
If you’re a movie goer, check out Costco for some great deals at my Costco, and they have regal tickets at $8, which is better than show up at the theater to buy them.
My favorite tip at Costco is that their toy deals are amazing, don’t neglect these and I’ve got the secret to know whether you’re getting the best deal. I’m using my favorite app, the Amazon app, to compare the price to Amazon to find out whether this is really a good deal. Check out this gun, all you need to do is to scan the barcode, I can see the price of this gun on the Amazon price is $42.99, while the price on the Costco is $27.99.
Last year, I scanned all of their toys and Costco beat Amazon every single time, so come to Costco to do your holiday shopping case, when you’re shopping at Costco, there’s one heartbreaking thing for me which is that the thing on your list is sold out in the store.
So we have a way around that is a crazy coupon, you’ll notice the asterisks on the top right of a tag, that means that this product is no longer going to be stocked at Costco. So if you see that and it’s a product you love, time to stock up. Costco can be a crowded place, but I found that on weekdays, from 3 to 5 p.m., is the secret time of the day to the lowest crowds, so give that a shot.
If you visit the crazy coupon lady. com for at least a week, we get bad prices on things like shampoo, deodorant, body wash, and razors. So the finger box shopping at Costco is if you’re buying all that stuff, you are not going to get the best deal, our strategy with all stores is to take advantage of what they have to offer skipping the stuff. That isn’t so great and capitalizing on the things that are good, so we’re going to show you some of our favorite things to buy at Costco. The Kirkland Signature frozen vegetable blend is $6.49 for a five-pound bag, that’s one of the best prices, and you’ll find the quality is amazing as well, which makes this one of my favorite things to buy at Costco at only eight cents each.
The Kirkland Signature kitchen bags are one of my favorite things to buy comparing to a price at Wal-Mart of eighteen cents per bag, so ten cents per bag can add up your savings quickly. One of our favorite things to buy at Costco is the Kirkland Signature diapers, if you look at the coupon booklet about every month, you’re going to see savings on the Kirkland brand diapers.
So that’s the time to stock up and save the size for diapers which costs eighteen cents per diaper, and you can find it is cheaper than using coupons while Costco doesn’t accept traditional printable newspaper, manufacture coupons, they have their own instant rebates, they send them out in this book, in their app and they also have them listed in the stores.
And the secret is that you don’t need any of it, because the savings are applied automatically about 6 months ago, so ditch these, but take advantage of these coupons. One of my favorite things to buy is the rotisserie chickens, they are three pounds and they cost $4.99 at Wal-Mart. So this is a way to better savings while you get so much meat, it’s a great price. Another great find at Costco is their 2 pound sheet cakes, they’re only $18.99 and they serve 48 people, so this is like your birthday party bail out.
So one of my personal favorite things at Costco is the $1.50 hotdogs and soda deal, they’re 100% all beef hot dogs, it’s a great deal as well.
