When most consumers think of warehouse clubs, mega-rolls of paper towels and snack foods in quantities that could feed a third-world country come to mind. However, while warehouse clubs are known for carrying necessities in bulk, they also sell luxury items at a discount. In fact, Coach handbags, Herman Miller chairs and Waterford Crystal are just a few examples of well-known luxury products that Costco, the largest warehouse club chain, has sometimes carried over the years.
In May, Go Banking Rates investigated a few of the luxury offers available from the warehouse to determine whether their prices really were that impressive. Some of the best deals included:
Five-night Walt Disney World Hotel Vacation Package
Costco Price: $1,909
Regular Price: $2,386
Savings: $477 (20%)
Samsung's 46″ Slim 1080p 120 Hz LED HDTV
Costco Price: $1,149.99
List Price: $1,399.99
Savings over List: $250
Savings over Amazon: $48
Mercedes-Benz SL550 Roadster
Costco Price: $105, 245
MSRP Price: $111,725
Savings: $6,480 (5.8%)
The specific brands and inventory offered by Costco varies by location and time of year, but one thing consumers can count on is that skipping the long lines and lower quality products found in outlet stores, and instead turning to wholesale warehouse chains for savings on luxury items, will guarantee savings no matter the season.
