Cosco 3-in-1 Hand Truck is listed for $99.99 + $24.99 for shipping on Costco's website. I called their Clackamas store located in greater Portland Oregon area and learned that this item is on sale for $79.99. This same hand truck with the loop handle, on Amazon, sells for $179.99. A $100 savings. Rated 5 stars on Costco (3 reviews). On Amazon, it's rated 4.5 out of 5 stars with 210 reviews. Picked up one at this location. They had 7 more available on display.

Per Costco's website:
  • Features
  • Heavy-Duty
  • 1000 lb. load capacity as 4-wheel cart
  • 800 lb. load capacity as 2-wheel hand truck and assisted hand-truck
  • Never-Flat Tires. Solid, maintenance-free tires
  • Easy to use. Quick one-hand conversion, no pins or tools needed
  • Easy to maneuver. Looped handle provides maximum control
  • Ergonomic. Reduces the chance of injury, fatigue and muscle strain
  • Versatile. Multi-functional, ideal for both home and office
  • Smart construction. Made from lightweight commercial grade aluminum and durable steel

This Cosco 3-in-1 Hand Truck with Loop Handle appears to be virtually the same on both, Costco and Amazon's website.

The price you are comparing on Amazon is from a 3rd Party Seller. That price is might not be representative of the regular price or what other websites charge.

One of the things SD does is ask that you research via Google Shopping. I did that and found that these hand trucks are selling for anywhere from $154.99 for the regular handle to $219 (Overstock.com). You "might" do a bit of research too, to find what other websites are charging. Your comment shows that you're merely speculating.

It is at costco.com any day for $124 delivered, AND for non members, its on Ebay for $125 new/delivered so there's that... Can you post at least the sale placard? Or the flyer (assuming its part of the regular sale) ? If reproducible $80 is a great deal but this literally is just "i saw it in the store check it out" which does the rest of us absolutely no good at all...

You are both right - at $79.99, this is a decent deal. But, comparing it to one 3rd party seller on Amazon is not the best comparison, because chances are they are simply drop-shipping it from Costco, and thus the price will always be marked up to make profit and never sell at retail. Generally speaking on SD, 3rd party Amazon seller comparisons are not considered a good example.

Also, since your example is only one store in the entire country, it's definitely a YMMV deal at this point, and should be noted in the title as such.

I wonder why some people post with all this negativity/"policing." I can confirm that it was $79.99 at my Costco in Southern California with the manufacturer's $20 instant rebate thru 5/28.

Have had this cart for a couple of years now. Helped move a lot of equipment, some I never thought would be possible on my own. Highly recommended!

I did apply the "YMMV" in the title. It seems that some may have missed it. Thanks for your suggestion and post.

Thanks for the post. Makes me wonder if it's storewide.
