Look for Price Tags Ending in $.88 and $.00 too
When a price tag ends in .88 or .00, it means that the product has been marked down in order to quickly move product. This is also an indication of what is selling and what isn’t. If the price tag has an asterisk on it, it will not be restocked either.
You can Shop Without a Membership
If you don’t want to but a membership to Costco, but know someone who has one, you can simply have that person buy you a Costco cash card, which is basically a Costco gift card. You can flash your pass on the way in and shop to your heart's content.
Even if you have only $25, you can spend over a $100 when shopping and just pay the difference with another accepted method of payment.
You can shop without a membership or a cash card
There are certain parts of Costco that are open to anyone – members and non-members alike. One of these areas is the pharmacy, where you can call in and fill your prescriptions. The other area is the food court.
In some states, non-members can also buy alcohol.
