While a $55 annual membership to Costco can pay for itself in just a few purchases — and save you a lot of money over time — maybe you don’t love the shopping experience there or you just want to get everything in one trip to another store.

Well, a lot of retailers will now match Costco prices on a variety of items — you just have to prove that it’s the exact same item that’s available at the warehouse club at a cheaper price.

So if there’s something you want to buy at another store and you found it cheaper at Costco, just make sure to save the proof from the website on your smartphone (or some other way) to show at checkout.
