8 Things You Didn't Know About Costco

Where would we be without Costco, oh Costco? People all throughout the nation are dependent on its free samples, Kirkland goods, affordable essentials.

You may be a habitual Costco shopper who has purchased a car from them, had eyewear made for you by their optician, and insured your life, house, and pet via their insurance services.

Nevertheless, there may be a few things in our peek behind the Costco curtain that even you are surprised by.

Your annual cost for a Costco membership will be at least $60 ($120 for the executive plan).

However, there are workarounds, particularly if you want to try out Costco before committing.

A Costco gift card is another option, but you'll have to ask a member to buy it for you. Costco Shop Cards come in denominations starting at $25 and going up to $1,000.

And regardless of membership status, anybody is welcome to utilise the Costco pharmacy.

This also applies to purchases of alcohol in various states. Finally, non-members may enjoy the benefits of Costco online purchasing by paying a 5% premium.
