While wearing their Costco badges, the pair filmed at what seemed to be their back office. Their first refund revelation was that a bed sheet used for five years could still be returned for a full refund.

Second, they shared that although already dead, a Christmas tree can still be returned after the holidays for a refund.

One of the most important things to remember when shopping at Costco is to bring bags, as the establishment does not offer any.

One hack to saving up in Costco is buying in bulk, as it is much cheaper than buying per piece, especially for essential items.

In addition, one of the most bought and price-friendly items in the store is their toilet paper. In 2015, the retailer sold over a billion rolls. However, customers have to find it deep down the aisles and pass through tempting items.
