Look for the end of the price tag
Costco is one of the most recognizable brands in the entire world and because of that, they make special deals with brands which in turn will save you money. How awesome is that?
While you can save money on just about anything that Costco sells, I have found that the best way to find deals is to check the price tag.
At Costco, when anything ends in a unique number will lead you to an amazing deal.
Whenever a price tag ends in .05, .79, .89– that is what you want to look for! Any time you see a price tag end in a seemingly random number, there is a good chance that Costco got a special deal from the manufacturer, which in turn means a good deal for you- yay!
Why .97 is the best end to a Costco price tag
Typically, the costco pricing will end in .99. If you are lucky though, and you are smart enough to do your research with this article, you will know how price tags that end in .97 means that they are on clearance.
You know how most stores will make their clearance in a special section or with a special colored tag? This is like that, but for Costco.
In addition, the little star located on the price sheet informs you that the item will not be restocked. I have been so thankful to know this while shopping.
The best part is that not everyone knows this juicy insider secret, which means more opportunities to save on everyday items.
