Tip One: Look for Special Price Coding
Warehouse stores have special price codes for clearance items.
"If it ends in .97 at Costco it's on clearance and it's not going to be restocked," savings expert Julia Scott ofbargainbabe.com said.
Price tags that end with a penny at Sam's Club means the item is on clearance.
Tip Three: Luxury Items and Prescriptions
Look for luxury items at warehouse stores, such as Kate Spade glasses that cost $42. We searched for the exact sunglasses style online and found them for over $100. We also found a pair of Kate Spade glasses at an upscale department store that had a different style name but looked very similar and cost $160.
Scott says prescription medications are cheaper too. At Sam's Club there are hundreds of prescriptions that cost $4 a month to fill.
At Costco customers do not need a membership to use their pharmacy.
Tip Two: Electronics
Large electronic stores can charge customers up to 15 percent to restock a returned item. But most membership stores have a 90 day return policy with no fee. BJ's has a shorter window returns, for example computers must be returned within 14 days.
Another incentive for customers to purchase electronic items, Costco and Sam's Club offer free phone-based tech support.
A manager at Sam's Club clued us in to the fact that you don't even have to buy your gadgets at Sam's and they'll still try to help you. You can call 24 hours a day, speak in English or Spanish, and they'll help you navigate your tech trouble.
Some companies are charging restocking fee when you return an item back.
