You won’t find the best deals on these items at Costco
On July 10, CostcoInsider.com did a price comparison in store at Costco and online at Amazon on select electronics and other items.
On some items, Costco beat Amazon by a whopping margin. For example, Costco listed a KitchenAid 6 Quart Bowl Lift Mixer for $269.99, while the same item was $449.99 on Amazon. That’s a huge price difference.
In another example, a T3 Micro Featherweight 2 Hair Dryer with Tourmaline was priced at $89.99 inside the warehouse club. But the same item was going for $200 through Amazon.
Meanwhile, Costco’s price on the Braun Series 3 3-in-1 Electric Shaver was $59.99. The Amazon price? $94.99 — that’s 43% more expensive!
But there were six electronics in particular where the better price was to be found at Amazon, not inside a Costco.
