WELCOME FELLOW COSTCO-HOLICS!

We’re absolutely thrilled you’ve found our little corner of the Internet. We thought it would be a good idea to let you know what this site is all about and how best to use it – sorta get the lay of the land before you dive in.  Thanks again for stopping by and we hope you find (and share) some great Costco deals. Don’t forget to tell your friends and family about us!  🙂

First things first: What the heck is a $x.97?!

Any product sold at Costco that has a price that ends in .97 is one that is on clearance and probably won’t be sold again in the store once sold out. Costco does not advertise these sales and they vary from store to store and region to region. (Learn more Costco shopping hacks.)

So how do we know about these “secret” deals? Costco shoppers like you from around the country share them here.  It’s easy to post a new deal  and doing so would greatly help other shoppers near you. You could also be a huge help by commenting on deals with the store location at which you’ve also found it.

Frequent Question: Can I buy these products on your site?

In short, no. Think of this site like SlickDeals, but only for Costco. This is a place where people find the great clearance deals found at Costco shared by other people, but they cannot be purchased here.

Yes, we’ve made a few exceptions if there was still a lot of stock of an item at our local store and it was easy to ship, but that’s fairly rare. Feel free to contact us and ask. You could also reach out to people in the comments to see if they’d be willing to help you out – but we don’t promote or condone the practice as these are basically Internet strangers.  🙂 Caveat emptor!

Sharing is Caring

The content for Costco97 comes from you – our faithful Costco fanatics. So, we would love love love it if you would share a $x.97 deal or two from your local Costco – or just comment on existing deals if you find them at your store. Even if you shared just one deal per year, we’d have an even more amazing site with many more local deals for everyone!  This site could not exist if it wasn’t for loyal & generous Costco shoppers like you.
