4 Sale Items Every Costco Member Should Shop in January
Costco members can usually expect to find groceries and kitchen gadgets at a significant discount, on top of already-reduced member prices. There aren’t many appliances on deep discount this month—minus one pretty big exception that we're highlighting below.
If you’re a Costco member, you'll be happy to hear that many of Costco's freshest grocery items are actually on sale during January—including items like boneless pork chops and Dannon's Light & Fit greek yogurt. And snacks, including Planter's peanuts, Bare organic apple chips, Zico coconut water, and even Special K bran cereal are also on deep discount, making it easier than ever to shop for cheap groceries in bulk at the wholesale retailer. You can see the full list of discounted groceries right here.
Some of these items are only sold for members, and prices and availability vary based on your local Costco store. A few items, however, can be purchased online—even if you don't currently pay for a Costco membership.

These discounts are valid for Costco shoppers through Sunday, January 27, but you'll need to ask a friend with a Costco membership to buy you a Costco Cash card if you don't already own one. That'll enable you to shop in store, without actually coughing up the $60 needed for an annual membership.
