Not a Costco Member? Try This Google Service to Shop at the Mega Retailer
This will make stocking up for the holidays a cinch for those who don't have a Costco membership.
Perhaps the nearest Costco is too far away from your home to make a membership sensible. Perhaps you're a Sam's Club member. Perhaps you prefer your Target trips and never quite got the Costco obesssion.
Enter: Google Express. If you're not a Costco member, you can still order items from Google's shopping platform, which includes items from Walmart, The Home Depot, Baby Center, and others, in addition to Costco. As Delish shared in a post this weekend, shopping with Google Express gives you access to an impressive range of Costco products (Hey, Kirkland Signature), even if you aren't a member of the wholesaler.
WATCH: Hallelujah! Costco Just Rolled Out Free Delivery Services
In exchange for being able to load up on Ziploc bags galore and endless handfuls of mixed nuts, a 10% "access fee" is added to your order at checkout if you're not a member. Of course, the extra surcharge is worth it for the overall savings if you'd only be an occasional Costco frequenter (Delish suggests that if your order is over $60, it makes more sense to become a Costco member). For orders over $35, free delivery is included. For residents of nine states—South Carolina is the only Southern one—you unfortunately won't be able to order from Costco using this method sans membership.
To everyone else, 'Tis the bulk season, so get shopping ladies and gents.
