Money-saving secrets from Costco employees

Money Saving Secrets From Costco Employees

At subscription stores like Costco, it may be a little pricey to get in the front door, but if you hold on for the long haul you can save a boatload of cash. Eat This, Not That! got the inside secrets from actual Costco employees on how to stretch your dollar even further.

Apparently their return policy is pretty forgiving. Eat This found an employee that said Costco will give you your money back on practically everything, and while there is a limit on bigger items, they'll take back stuff like TVs and major appliances up to 90 days after purchase.

That same employee clued us in on getting cash back if an item goes on sale. Apparently if you bought something at Costco and it went on sale within 30 days after your purchase, you can bring it in and get the difference back.

Also, if you see a little asterisk on the price tag, that item is going out of stock. So if you want it, get it now. Even if it comes back, it won't be for a while, and that's the last of it they have in the warehouse.

When it comes to checking out at Costco, they accept limited forms of payment and many credit cards can't be use. But you can pay with almost any credit card on their website.

And it goes without saying, gas will almost always be cheaper at a Costco. No real insider secrets there, but your saving money on something you use everyday, and isn't that what it's all about? When it comes to Costco, here's to fatter wallets.
