How to Get the Most Value Out of A Warehouse Club Membership
Warehouse Club stores like Sam’s, BJs, and Costco are amazing places. Stores where you can eat dinner, buy diamonds rings, stock up on essentials like dried rice and razors and get your eyes checked. Nothing like crossing off everything on your to-do list in one stop!
One of our favorite things about warehouse club stores is that if you go on the right days, you can make the rounds of the aisles and sample all their delicious goods for no charge. Of course, we love the savings that we find at them as well.
Here are the top reasons we love our warehouse club membership & the value it brings!
Fill ‘Er Up
Majority of warehouse clubs have gas stations on the premises that require your membership card to fill up the tank. The benefit of your warehouse club having these gas stations is that they can offer their members gas at a cheaper price (up to a dime less than other local stations!). When you add up the dimes you save, it comes out to a hefty savings.
Dinner is Ready!
Believe it or not, warehouse clubs have come a long way in prepared foods (some even have restaurants in their stores!) and if you’ll feeling like taking a night off from cooking, you can pick up a pizza, a rotisserie chicken or treat the kids to some yummy hot dogs. The value of a meal from your warehouse club store is definitely greater than you would get taking the family out to a restaurant.
Buying in Bulk
If you’re a fan of meal planning or freezing meals 30 days in advance, warehouse club stores are exactly what you need. You can buy staples like rice, beans, pasta, and other items at great prices and have ingredients for several meals on hand. Warehouse Club stores offer great deals on staple items and you can forget having to ask the neighbors for a cup of sugar because you have it in bulk in your pantry!
The savings you find at your local warehouse club stores are definitely a good way to watch your pennies. Just make sure you buy only what you need, it can be tempting to stock up on everything because they offer such great deals. Make a list, stick it in your Card Cubby and save in style.
