At Costco, numbers tell a story; they reveal information about how much you can save on an item. However, only a few people know how to read the price code.
Here’s what each Costco price code means:
1. When the product has a price tag that ends with .97, it indicates the product is currently on clearance sale (clearance items save you the most money, so look out for those)
2. When it ends with .00 or .88, it’s on a manager’s special discount
3. When it ends with or has an asterisk attached to it, that means Costco will not be restocking that item
4. If it has none of these price codes, the product is at its regular price
Understanding this system puts you one step ahead of other shoppers and helps you save on your future shopping trips to Costco.
