These Costco items may surprise you.
- Costco has many household items that you can buy, but it also carries items that you might not expect to find there.
- These include expensive engagement rings, musical instruments and more.
When you think of items to buy at Costco, you probably think of typical warehouse club purchases like paper towels and dishwasher detergent and bulk groceries. And really, you can easily end up putting all of these items on your credit card when you visit your local Costco store.
But aside from these staples, there are some really unexpected products you can buy at the members-only storage club. In fact, here are six surprising items you can pick up on your next Costco trip or on the store’s website.
1. A very expensive engagement ring
Costco offers a wide selection of engagement rings to fit every budget—including very high budgets. In fact, the warehouse club offers seven engagement rings online priced at more than $100,000 — including one priced close to $350,000.
So if you’re looking for a piece of jewelry that costs as much as many people’s houses, you can pick it up at Costco.com. I bet that wouldn’t be the first place you looked for it.
If you’re in the market for some lighting, you may not need to go to Lowes or another home improvement store to find the fixture of your dreams.
Costco offers a wide variety of stylish chandeliers that will appeal to the decorator in you. And they range from $700 chandelier/fan combos to bargain basement options that cost just $129.99 after a $50 rebate.
3. Luxury wine cellars
While you might expect to be able to pick up a bottle of your favorite white or red at Costco, you probably wouldn’t think of going there to buy a wine cellar that costs more than $5,500. In fact, Costco offers several luxury wine cellars (as well as some cheaper alternatives).
So if you’re training to be a sommelier or just want to make sure you have the perfect bottle on hand at all times, you can find your ideal wine storage solution at your local Costco store.
4. Musical instruments
If you’re interested in making beautiful music, Costco has you covered. From digital piano sets to acoustic guitars to complete drum kits, you can find your instrument of choice at Costco.com.
In fact, there is a complete drum set priced at just over $2,000 that you could buy if you want to start a band or if you really dislike your neighbors and want to drive them crazy with some drumming.
5. Swimming pools
Costco offers several options for above ground pools if you’re interested in finding a great way to cool off during the summer months. These affordable options can let you add a pool to your home for as little as $800—just be sure your HOA will be okay with the new addition.
6. Funeral items
Rounding out this list with the least fun item of all, you can also find caskets and urns at Costco. Although these items are not things you want to find on your must-buy list, Costco offers very affordable prices for them compared to funeral homes, so they can save you money during a difficult time in your life.
These are just a few of the many surprising finds at Costco, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled online for unexpected items you might want to add to your cart.
