I am wondering the same.

I am interested in this, but I am guessing it’s too late.

Depending on where you live, your zone, you can plant up to November or December, according to garden experts
If you think it's too late to plant bulbs, it's not. Fall into early winter is the best time. However, if you feel it's going to be very late before you can get to the task, dig your holes in the ground now, before the ground is completely frozen, and store the soil that you'll need to cover the bulbs in a bag in a place where it won't freeze. Then, any time into November and December, you can pop the bulbs into the ground and cover them with the reserved soil.
If the ground is frozen, you can plant in containers or pots.

I wouldn't consider these prices at the end of season a good or sale...these are close to regular price, aren't they? Also most people don't have space to put 80 to 100 bulbs in their ggarden...another example of costco's wastefulness.

Got bag of 50 fall bulb from warehouse for 18.99 reg. Are these better quality since per bulb price is still much higher on clearance? Or it's just online inflated price.

Yep. Squirrels are smart. Can roll the bulbs in blood meal to deter rodents.

You got a good deal. Online they are marketing the fragrant varieties, heirloom varieties, bee and butterfly attracting bulbs--overall more varieties than found in the warehouse. Before COVID, online clearance price was $29.97.

Prices are better in store but not all varieties are available in store and vice versa.
Packages have lower count but all are 18.99.
Example 65 ct of the bee & butterfly bulbs for $18.99 vs 100 online for $34.97

I'm sure most people can find 10 square feet of garden space. One of the ladies in my old condo did 200 tulips on her deck every year. I did close to 80 that I was given in 6 planters at my front entrance...

That being said not a spectacular deal.

You missed the point - it's unnecessary to have so many bulbs in one package when most people would not want/need that many - particularly as people have other flowers/plants so the space needs to be shared. Bulbs also multiple. It makes more sense to have a reasonable number per package (for the same cost) and if people like you and your neighbour want more bulbs you can buy the number of packages you need - the price would be the same.

Its Costco... Bulk is their middle name. If you want smaller amounts go to Independent or Save on Foods or your local garden center.

It's actually still pretty warm here. I read overnight temp to be between 4-10 is a good time to plant which is about next week for me in Ottawa. Mid to late October is a perfect time.
Uh, yeah, I'd like to speak to a Mr. Tabooger, first name Ollie.

I understand it might be ok to plant NOW, but waiting for Costo.ca delivery (sometimes it takes weeks). Last year I ordered a sprinkler - by the time it came, I no longer needed it...

Sorry about your sprinkler experience. Costco.ca says 2-10 days. Postal code dependent. YMMV.

Warehouse bulb packages going for $14.99 this week in some locations. Packages contain 3-30 bulbs. Not as much variety as Costco.ca. YMMV.

You know where you are tying to shop right?

Also projecting your own situation as "most" is just silliness, when logic dictates it is not the situation of most since they sell these every year forever...
