Do you shop at Costco?

Do you shop at Costco? No I don't expect an answer nor do I care :) but came across this article and thought it was interesting. Not sure if it is true or not...but have a look.

You always need to check prices. No store always has the lowest price on every item all of the time.

Someone has posted this here before. It's probably true, but I haven't bothered to check.

Here is a great example of ending in .97 and having the asterisk.

looks to be a sweet deal! so did they ever restock or does the article hold water? I'm headed down to state side this weekend. I need to stock up on some delo 400. It's almost 1/2 the cost as buying it up here! Even with the crappy exchange rate at the mo.

I have known about the .97 for years Sams Club uses .91 and other stores have their own codes.
Look for prices that end with .00 at Home Depot, but what has thrown me is that the DST which was already marked down to 12.00 is now 12.06

The original article also seems to contain some interesting tips, such as:

Do you know of an article for the home Depot pricing?
