You may think of having a Sam’s Club or Costco membership like an illusive secret society where you can buy toilet paper by the dozen and grab a hot dog for pocket change. But it’s hard to imagine shelling out for the price of an annual membership if you’re not exactly near one of their giant warehouses, and don’t even know what they have to offer in-person (especially since their inventory rotates frequently, even if the hot dogs might stay the same).
We’ll let you in on another secret though: no longer do you need to trek out to their store to pack the car bulk ingredients for your upcoming seasonal baking frenzy. Both retailers now offer online shopping, so you can not only avoid buyers remorse, you can get any of their offerings shipped straight to your door.
I’m a frequent flyer of Costco myself, since it was one of the first outings I would genuinely look forward to post-quarantine. Sam’s Club and Costco both have their their strong suits, with Costco killing it on with their house brand Kirkland food offerings, and Sam’s Club having great deals on tech essentials. But you don’t have to choose between memberships.
We’ve got the full rundown on how you can shop at Sam’s Club and Costco online, all without a membership. Give them both a trial run without having to spend the annual membership fee upfront, and let the savings come to you.
