Costco has raised their prices across the board, not the same as in-store. In my area anyway, Las Vegas NV.shake head

They did increase it, in my area anyway (LA), around 30%. It now has prices similar to Instacart.

prices are the same here in DE but my first GE/Costco order charged me sales tax. I live 5 minutes from a warehouse and we have no sales tax in DE! We only used GE because we had a coupon that would have saved us $30 off an item we'd just purchased in the store but ended up saving us only $20.

GE = not worth it if you live in a state with no sales tax.

Depends where they buy it from but don't go buy the estimated tax on the checkout page, when it goes out for delivery that's the correct tax, if there is tax at all.

it was bought in Baltimore, which is 90 minutes away. we have 2 Costco's within 45 minutes. it'd probably be cheaper to pay an uber driver to deliver purchases to us from the store down the street lol

UGH.. I just noticed they increased it here in NYC. Must have just happened, bc last week the prices were the same. Items went up a LOT too...not just a buck here and there! This really sucks.. I relied on GE to get lots of items for work. Now I have to find another solution =(

Taxes are estimated. If order is fulfilled in California and there's no tax, it will be adjusted when it ships.
