Warehouse Compare - The Warehouse Club Price Comparison Website

Welcome to Warehouse Compare!

Warehouse Compare is a free service which allows visitors to upload and search for the prices of products at their local BJ's, Costco, and Sam's Club stores. The search results return the price of the item, but more importantly the price per unit for every item is shown, so you can quickly make price comparisons with similar items at your other local stores. Now you'll know if the 5 gallon bucket of cheese spread, 200,000 Q-tips, and the 25 pack of hair dye you bought at your warehouse club store were a good deal when compared to the prices at your other local stores. In a more realistic scenario, if you happen to see a product on sale while shopping at your local grocery store, you can whip out you handy iPhone (or other web enabled device) and quickly ascertain if it is a better deal to purchase the item at the grocery store or wait to buy it on your next visit to your local warehouse club store.

How to get started:

  • Select the warehouse club where you shop.
  • Search for items to compare prices with similar items you find at other stores.
  • Update this site with the prices and descriptions of items you purchase at your warehouse club, so they can be shared with other people.

10.1 inch screen, dual core processor, latest edititon Android operating system, Verizon LTE 4G, HDMI and USB connectivity…lots to like in the XOOM.

Cooking from the Warehouse Clubs Part I: Costco

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — BCS @ 8:48 PM

Not sure what to do with the 8 lbs of chicken, 2 lbs of salmon, or 3 lbs of brisket you just brought home? I have a chest freezer so unless I am cooking for a big crowd, I divide the food into smaller packages and freeze them.  This works great for meat, cheese, bagels, and fish. I am always looking for new recipes to try out with items I buy at my warehouse club store. A great resource for recipes is the warehouse clubs themselves.

Part 1: Costco.  Costco gives away their recipe book every Black Friday.  These recipe books features some of the brands they carry in their store. If you do not want to wait until after Thanksgiving, you can also look online at over 1,600 recipes.  One of my favorite recipes is Chicken Monterey which I have nicknamed Ketchup Chicken.  I cube the chicken before making it and use 2 fresh tomatoes for the topping. It tastes wonderful.  In addition to the recipe book, Costco also features recipes in their Costco Connection newsletter. In this month’s edition they have a recipe for Moroccan Lamp and Lemon Tagine which looks delicious.

Happy recipe searching everybody!

I’m testing a new feature for searching the price lists. If you type ‘List All’ in the search box, while searching by Description, you’ll see a price list of all the items we have stored for your local warehouse club store.

Don’t see anything? Get things started by adding the price data for the things you just bought at your warehouse club, and tell your neighbors to add the prices of the things they just bought too!

Gas Stations

Filed under: Updates — Tags: , , — BCS @ 9:03 AM

Many of the warehouse club stores have gas stations for their members. Typically, these gas stations offer gas at few cents cheaper per gallon than other local gas stations.  To compare the price of  gasoline at your local gas stations, visit gasbuddy.com. The gas itself is the same quality as the mainstream gas stations (BP, QuikTrip, Cheveron, etc). The only difference is the additives each company adds to the gas. The warehouse clubs keep the gas prices low to help get customers in their door.  

If you shop Costco and use their Costco American Express* card, you get 3% cash back on gas purchases up to $3,000 and 1% thereafter.  

Those shopping at BJ’s gas stations can earn 2% with their BJ’s Visa card*.

Sam’s Club members can receive up to 2% cash back with their Sam’s Discover card*.

*Visit the warehouse club’s websites to review terms and conditions for their credit cards.
