Costco Finds Canada shared a hack on TikTok about how to make Costco food court fries at home.

Apparently, the Cavendish FlavourCrisp Fries (which come in blue packages) that you can get frozen are the same ones that Costco uses in the food court!

Shopping without a membership

If you don't have a Costco membership or know someone who doesn't have one and would like to shop at the wholesale retailer, there's a way to go through the store and buy stuff without being a member.

TikToker @amidstthechaos posted a video about Costco's Shop Cards (which are basically gift cards) and showed the back of it so that you can read the fine print.

It says that you don't have to be a member to use the Costco Shop Card but only current Costco members can buy it.

To activate, members have to tell the cashier the amount they want to load — $50 minimum, $2,000 maximum — and then pay that amount.

If you receive one of these cards as a non-member, you have to register for a one-day shopping pass at the Membership Counter each time you go to a warehouse to use it.

Then, the cost of your purchases will be deducted from the balance on the card and if there is any money remaining, the amount will be listed on the receipt.

Kirkland savings

If you haven't already heard, there's a Kirkland Signature hack that can save you money.

Since Costco partners with brands and manufacturers for its own private-label brand, that means sometimes the items you see with the Kirkland label are really brand-name products being sold at a cheaper price.

For example, @amidstthechaos shared on TikTok that the Kirkland Signature coffee is actually Starbucks coffee but less expensive!

Exclusive products


Honestly I’ll eat any salad from taylor farms😩. #shoppingsecrets #taylorfarms #costcosecrets

According to @couponcutiecanada on TikTok, some products are made exclusively for Costco like the Creamy Dill Pickle salad kit from Taylor Farms.

The TikToker found a Dill Pickle kit from Taylor Farms at Real Canadian Superstore and compared it to the exclusive product.

They found that the Costco one is cheaper and came with more ingredients (dill pickle seasoning and cheese) in addition to the dressing and croutons that the non-exclusive product had.

When products go on sale

Costco Finds Canada shared a tip about the best time to shop if you're looking to find sales.

According to a TikTok video, "hot ticket" products go on sale on Fridays for the weekend.

They found an air fryer at a Costco location that was an unadvertised "hot buy" and was marked down by $20 for the weekend.

So if you want a better chance of getting a popular item while it's on sale before the shelves are clear, you might want to consider shopping on Fridays!

Finding hidden clearance


Tip: clearance at Costco ends in .97 #meccano #stemtoy #costcotoys

If you're all about deals and saving money, @couponcutiecanada's hack is to shop for products that are on "hidden clearance."

They found a toy that typically sells for $70 but was marked down for $19.97.

"Tip: clearance at Costco ends in .97," they said.

That's no joke; two Costco employees confirmed the product clear-out hack to Narcity and revealed more things to know so that you can save money!
