Costco Price Adjustment

Does Costco still do price adjustment?

The stuff I bought last week is now having a sale but I threw the receipt away.

I don't wanna buy the same thing and go to return counter to return right away. Can I just walk up to the return counter and tell them what I bought last week and do the price adjustment?

Ya should be fine. They can pull up your receipt from your membership.

I've done this twice in the last few months. Saw something I bought the week before on sale. Go to the return desk, just tell them what you bought and roughly when, they can look it up and do the adjustment.

As long as membership is active, they can look up old transactions. Just give them a rough time and they will look it up.

Oshawa and Markham East If I remember correctly won't do this. Not sure about other locations

Yeah some locations like to make their own rules.

In the past Ajax wouldn't do it either without a receipt.

Yes and helps to have the receipt to speed things up.

Yes but at least my Costco requires the receipt otherwise they won't do. So now I hold on to all receipts for at least 30 days.

Saw an item that I bought was being cleared out. I asked if they will do a price adjustment but they said I needed the receipt.

Had to drive back to get the receipt was kinda a pain but it was $35 cheaper so worth it and I did it same day before it was gone and then maybe they would have said sorry now sold can't price adjust.

In the future just buy the clearance one and return it with the higher receipt. Save the trip for next time.

That thought did cross my mind but that day I decided to walk to Costco since I did not need to many items and figured it would be too much of a pain to find parking.

National Capital Reg…
Did price adjustment recently at a GTA location and was told it is 14 days only. Supervisor made "one time exception" as I was few days over. I was told before it was 30 days (similar to posters saying above). They insisted it is 14 days only, and did not explain when policy changed. Not sure whether it is indeed a new policy or the location made their own rules. I guess I will just do re-buy and return going forward... wasteful, but faster and less hustle anyway. Always thought 30 days was reasonable, but 14 days... no thanks.

I couldn't find it on Costco.ca, but I found this.

It's not wasteful (except for your time) if you return the unopened item with the old receipt.
