At Costco97, our goal is to explore local .97 Costco deals, savvy shopping advice, and all other Costco-related hacks. We’ve created a community of “Costcoholics” to share in-store sales and extra ways to save. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions to help you navigate and make the most of our site. 

Join our community by posting your own Costco finds! You can also subscribe to our newsletter for more exclusive Costco97 content. 

Why the Name Costco97?

Easy! It all started from seeing in-store $x.97 sales, which we wanted to share among Costco members who might be shopping at the same stores. As a brand, we’re obsessed with Costco and finding hidden deals. Combine the two things we love the most, and you get Costco97! 

We’re passionate about our community, so we hope you join us to spread the word about Costco’s secret price codes and membership benefits.

What Are $x.97 Deals?

97 is our lucky number, and it should be yours too! Products with price tags ending in $x.97 are special, limited-time deals created by the local Costco store managers at their discretion. These items are not advertised outside of their price tags and only last until the stock runs out. 

For Costco members who want to become savvy shoppers, learning the codes on price tags is a huge way to save. And for us, 97 is the number that started it all! 

Are There Any $x.97 Deals in My Area? 

We have shoppers all over the U.S. from Alabama to Washington who share their local .97 deals. Double-check the Costco near you for a glimpse at the current .97 markdowns in your area.

I Found an Item Marked $x.97—How Can I Share It? 

Great find! Let’s show off your local .97 deal to your fellow shoppers by posting it here. This will allow you to submit a photo of the product and share information about its price, the store location, and more. You can provide as much information as you want or keep it simple. We take both personal profiles and anonymous submissions, so the choice is up to you. 

How Do I Know These $x.97 Deals Are Happening?

There’s no set day or time when these deals can happen. Plus, these .97 sales are only available in-store, so be sure to check the deals by location page for new postings. When perusing your local Costco, keep a sharp eye out for the price tags. These deals are only available for a limited time, so it’s up to you as shoppers to find the deals and share them before it’s too late. 

What Other Deals Does Costco Have Besides $x.97? 

While we all love the surprise .97 markdowns, Costco has an array of deals that you can find in-house and online. From more secret price codes to advertised clearance items, Costco is home to all types of savings. 

As a Costco member, it’s important to decipher the price tags to discover what is really on sale. For example, our blog post uncovers Costco hacks and elaborates on each price code’s meaning.
