Costco is a mecca for bargain-minded shoppers. Sure, you have to buy an annual membership to get in the door — but in return, you get access to a world of high-quality goods at great prices, all backed by a generous return policy. Whether you need a household appliance, a set of tires, seasonal clothing, fresh produce, or the biggest containers of Lysol wipes you've ever seen, you can find almost any type of product at Costco.
But despite its legendary reputation for great prices, there are lots of common Costco mistakes that could end up costing you money. Make sure you're not doing any of the following. (Not a Costco member? You can apply here.) And if you know of Costco mistakes that we haven't listed, let us know what they are in the comments.
