Sam's Club Is Beating Costco's Prices In One Crucial Area Right Now

Dropping the price of its own super-cheap hot dog combo isn't the only way that Sam's Club is undercutting its main warehouse club rival, Costco, these days.

According to The Motley Fool's Ascent, the Walmart-owned bulk retailer is now offering better deals on many grocery staples to one type of consumer that Costco has long neglected: online shoppers.

The personal finance site found that Sam's Club provides a "far better selection of shippable items" and also offers in-store pickup for online orders, while Costco's digital presence is "disappointing," by comparison.

The stark difference between the two club's e-commerce strategies may come as no big surprise to long-time Costco members, who know that the retailer's best deals are usually found in person at the warehouse, not online. In fact, the Costco website includes a whole page devoted to "warehouse savings," which specifically notes that: "Most items available online for a delivered price."

Sam's Club, meanwhile, "actually encourages shopping online," the Ascent noted, and even offers free shipping for Plus-level members. Costco, by contrast, not only charges a premium to shop online but also tacks on shipping fees.

Comparing online prices on several everyday items, the finance site discovered some significant price differences between the two warehouse rivals.

The most noticeable is the advertised price for olive oil. Sam Club charges just $12.38 for its 2-liter bottle of Member's Mark Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, whereas Costco's Kirkland Signature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil costs $15.99—that's savings of over $3!

Sam's Club private label coffee and maple syrup is also cheaper online than Costco's, the site found. Member's Mark Colombian Supremo Whole Bean Coffee is priced at $6.39 per pound, while Kirkland Signature Colombian Supremo Coffee Whole Bean is $8. Meanwhile, Member's Mark Organic 100% Pure Maple Syrup costs 40 cents per ounce, while Kirkland Signature Organic Pure Maple Syrup is 44 cents.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That!

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
