Costco Comparison 3

Costco Price Comparison

 

With our 2nd comparison being even more popular than our 1st (our readers sure love Costco), I thought it was time to follow with Costco Comparison 3.  After a few visits to Coscto I’m starting to get to know what items are worth purchasing from Costco, and which items we are better of purchasing from an ordinary supermarket.  There are some items that just can’t be beaten on price or quality; the rotisserie chickens are fantastic for $6.99, and we are going to try a slab cake for my son’s first birthday this weekend for $26.99.

 

As with the previous comparisons, the Coles and Woolworths comparison prices are taken from the relevant online stores, and sale prices are used where applicable.  Products are compared using unit prices, with the lowest unit price of each particular brand being used, regardless of the packaging size.

    Just wondering what one does with 1.36 kg of mince garlic (?) and if you actually end up saving money overall or wasting lots of food by buying in such bulk.

    • BargainMums

      The mince garlic actually lasts quite a while in the fridge, but it is definitely something we get a fair bit of use out of, as we use it in place of fresh garlic. Costco is definitely the type of store where you need to do your research before shopping in, and ensure that you only buy items you will actually use!

    You can’t really compare to online coles and wollies prices cause they’re generally 25% more than in store on average.

    • BargainMums

      That’s true Mel, some products are more expensive online compared with in store, but it’s the best way for me to compare since prices vary so much from store to store, plus it would take me hours to walk around each supermarket taking note of prices!
