How to find Clearance items at Costco

It’s fairly simple but you may have to search a bit.  Some stores have an area designated for clearance items that may have been returns, overstock, seasonal, etc.  Other stores simply mix them in with the regular stock.  The key is look for items that end in $0.97 – that means that item is on clearance and won’t last long!

Yesterday we found these All-In-One Back to School kits on clearance for $3.97.  We already had these items in our school supply stockpile but I think these would make fabulous donation items.

Here are a few other popular Costco posts here on TFF:

  3. Items I would NEVER buy at Costco…

Do you have any other tips for spotting a deal at Costco?

    I bought a floor-model microwave oven for a very cheap price, although I don’t remember the particulars. It was mixed in on the shelf with the other microwaves. There was nothing wrong with it and I’ve had it for several years now.

      Elizabeth, I have no way of finding out if/when Costco will have these. I did find it on Amazon and since it seems to be discontinued, it’s on sale. You can see it here . Hope you find what you are looking for!
