Sams Club & Costco offer great savings to their customers, but which one offers the best prices…
I read the Passionate Penny Pincher religiously, so when I heard they were doing a price comparison of Sam’s Club vs. Costco I was excited to see what they found!
As they described the experiment:
“Because we’re a couple of penny pinchin’ nerds, my friend Shannon and I love to see the low-down-nitty-gritty of a good price, and always (always!) do the math to know just how much we’re spending.
So, when I called Shannon on the way home from Costco the other day, we started discussing how fun it would be to price war Sam’s and Costco and see who actually won. (Did I mention we were penny pinchin’ nerds? I wasn’t kidding.) I wasvery surprised with some of the results, but loved seeing them matched up evenly. This is just a small sample of the things we watched for this week, and if you all enjoy it, we may both make another trip back for more.”
Check out their blog post here to see their findings. While there were many similarities, it is interesting to see where they are able to outperform each other!
Do you shop at big box stores? Where do you think the savings really lie in stores like Costco or Sam’s Club?
