Do you know how to spot the deals at the warehouse clubs? Just like I do, you too can save big bucks by waiting for these secret pricing signals and pouncing when you see them:

  • At Sam's Club, look for anything that ends in a penny -- such as $19.91 or $4.41 -- or anything marked with a "C" for clearance.
  • At Costco, look for anything that ends in 97 cents, which means it's being sold below cost. Also, price tags with an asterisk mean an item will not be reordered. If you see the asterisk and there are a lot of the items in stock, wait until the price gets marked down to a 97 and then buy. (You'll find most of the 97s and asterisks in the seasonal section -- the back third of the middle of the store.)
  • BJ's will clearly tell you on the label when they mark down.
