How can you save money at Costco?
Saving money at Costco often means reining in the temptation to buy in too much bulk. So instead of grabbing three boxes of 20 Kind bars, maybe just one or two. And Costco is world headquarters for the impulse buy. Make a list of must-haves before you go, and bring moral support for sticking to the plan.
If you aren’t a Costco member, you might still be able to score a few warehouse bargains: You don’t have to be a member to shop Costco online, but you’ll pay a 5% surcharge over posted prices. You can always become a member at checkout, at which time Costco will remove the added fee.
