16 Unbeatable Back-to-School Finds at Costco and Sam's Club
Don't forget the warehouse clubs when you're tackling that back-to-school list: Costco and Sam's Club carry a lot more school supplies than you might expect, and membership can really pay off. The prices are often lower than Amazon, Walmart, Target, Staples and other major retailers -- especially if you're shopping for more than one child and can divvy up that bulk pack of pencils. Here are 16 deals that recently caught our eye at Costco and Sam's. Note: Prices are subject to change especially as school draws closer.
Costco abounds with good buys on lunch-box and snack-time staples: A 54-count box of Rice Krispie Treats is $10.99, or 20 cents each. Walmart wants $8.98 for a 40-count box, or 22.5 cents each. A 54-count variety pack of 1-ounce Frito Lay bagged chips is $12.89 at Costco, while a 50-count pack is $18.98 at Walmart.
Sam's also has some good deals, like $9.88 for a 90-count box of Mott's Medleys fruit snacks and $8.88 for a 60-count box of Quaker Chewy granola bars. The fruit snacks are $5.88 for only 40 pouches at Walmart; granola bars are $4.98 for 24.
