Perfect for people who do lots of sauteing, homemade salad dressings and pasta! It’s $13.49 for a 2L size of olive oil at Costco. That’s cheaper than Amazon Fresh ($20) and a number of name-brand options. To keep your counter clear, we’d recommend buying a smaller decanter and refilling it from the 2L jug. Don’t miss the other Kirkland items worth buying.
The Kirkland Signature Organic Chicken Stock is $11.49 for six 32-oz cartons, or $1.92 a carton. It’s going to be cheaper than the non-organic options from Swanson ($2.89 per carton) or Kitchen Basics ($3.24 per carton.) Over the course of a year, those savings will add up.

It turns out that pro chefs love Costco for its high-quality beef. You may not want to buy the $1,200 Wagyu beef that chefs are picking up, but Costco’s Wagyu beef might just be worth the splurge. You can grab a pound and a half for as low as $165. Don’t forget to check out the best things to buy at Costco right now.

Most supermarkets sell rotisserie chickens for $5 to $7. But Costco sells a juicy, flavorful bird that weighs in at 3 pounds for only $4.99. (The chain actually loses money by selling chickens this cheap.) Here’s how it stacks up against other grocery store rotisserie chickens.
Organic Maple Syrup
If you’re a total sucker for fluffy Belgian waffles like I am, you’re going to need this. An enormous bottle of Kirkland Organic Maple Syrup is only $12.49 (or .32 cents an ounce). Compare that to Coombs Family Farms Organic Maple Syrup at $26.97 for a 32 ounce bottle, and you already know who the winner is!
The Kirkland-brand bacon was described as “excellent” and came out on top in a Consumer Reports taste test. Plus, it’s far cheaper than the national brand stuff (a pack of four 1-pound packages is just under $19), and though every package has far more bacon than you’d ever eat in one Sunday brunch, it holds up well in the freezer.
For any family with a Friday night pizza tradition, buying frozen ‘za in packs of four or more typically ends up being cheaper than buying one by one. Stock up in bulk at Costco, especially if you have a second freezer in the garage or basement. You might want to pick up a 2-pack of this cauliflower pizza, too.

Costco sells gift cards at roughly 25% off. You can buy two $50 California Pizza Kitchen gift cards for $79.99, four $15 Krispy Kreme gift cards for $44.99 and so on. It’s perfect for gift-giving around the holidays—or to save extra cash when eating out.
If you’re trying your hardest to lay off the junk food but you’ve still got that instinct to snack, we’ve got the perfect deal for you. A 28-count box of snackable Skinny Pop Popcorn bags is only $10.49! Each bag clocks in at around 100 calories, so you don’t have to feel so sugar-filled and heavy every time you treat yourself.
Here’s how popcorn can even give you that whole grain you need in your diet.
The best snack time always includes a bit of peanut butter. A pack of two 48 ounce jars of Skippy Peanut Butter will only run you $10.49. That’s cheaper than the same product at Amazon, Walmart and other stores. Trust me, you’ll need as much PB as you can when you make as many peanut butter cookies as I do!

When you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you start to realize just how quickly you can run out of your favorite spices. But have no fear, Costco is here! For example, a 30 ounce jar of Kirkland Pure Sea Salt is only $2.79. Yes, you read that correctly. That’s three times less expensive than a jar of McCormick Sea Salt from Walmart. Talk about more bang for your buck!
