I got a refund at Costco 5 YEARS after my coffee machine stopped working – shoppers need to know about this hack

COSTCO is known for its value-priced items, wholesales, delicious chocolate chip cookies and, of course, free samples.

But there’s another little-known aspect of Costco that makes it so appealing: its return policy on many items.

A money-saving expert who goes by @BougieCheapskate on TikTok has over 300,000 followers thanks to his money-saving hacks.

She recently revealed a Costco policy that lets you return items well after the date you imagine.

She replayed a scenario in her video:

“Hi Costco, my coffee maker has stopped working,” she said.

Acting as a store employee, she replied, “This coffee maker looks like it’s about five years old.”

“Yeah. And I’d like to claim Costco’s 100% satisfaction guarantee. Since I’m no longer satisfied with this product, I’d like to return it so I can purchase the new model,” she said as client.

The “employee” admitted that she was right: “It makes sense! There are a few exceptions to this rule, but coffee makers are covered. I can help you kickstart that comeback.

The policy means that you would be able to return a number of products that no longer work properly and buy new ones instead.

As for other Costco hacks, a money expert named Zachary Burrabel said there is a way to shop at the chain retailer without a membership.

“Do you know if you have a Costco gift card or wanted to buy one as a gift for someone, that you don’t have to be a member to use it?” he said in a TikTok video.

He then showed the Costco Shop Card FAQ page to prove his advice was true.

“Non-members, as well as members, can use Costco Shop Cards to shop at any Costco store in the United States, Canada, or Puerto Rico, as well as online at Costco. com and Costco.ca,” the site says.

Plus, you can even use the gas shopping card, which is notoriously cheap at Costco.
