When Amazon has significantly better pricing than Costco.

I was in the market for a Lifetime folding kids table and was about to pull the trigger on Costco.com ($74.99) but luckily I had an Amazon price watch widget installed on my Chrome browser.  The Amazon widget gives me their prices on products I search for on the Internet and is a very handy tool.  Of course Costco always wins the pricing war hands down so when this product popped up on the widget, it was a whopping $25 less at $49.87 and with Prime shipping!  I thought for sure it was a mistake and went directly to Amazon’s site to see if it was too good to be true.  Yup, it was true so I was little disappointed that Costco’s price for this item was 50% higher.  I double checked for any differences or included accessories and it’s basically apples for apples.  Take a look at the screen shot below:

By the way great table for the kids that is easy to clean and folds up for compact storage.  Check out the reviews on both Amazon’s and Costco’s website if you’re interested.  I wished Costco would have carried this table in a different color (green or blue?) – I probably would have spent the extra $25 for those colors instead of the generic off-white that most Lifetime tables come in.

Treasure Hunt – Week of May 22nd, 2017 – Costco.com

For the ultimate Father’s Day gift (hint hint to the wives reading this blog), this is absolutely a great value considering shipping is included in the price.

If you bought the bargain priced Whalen workbench from Costco and feel the need to complete the “look”, here are two matching tool chests with the same dark stained rubber wood to go with it.  The price is very good but the additional shipping charge is unfortunately (a whopping $200 for the 41″ tool chest) and absurdly high.
