"You'd be surprised at how many people don't know this, but actually sells gift cards to some of your favorite places at a discount," video creator Ravi Wadan (@raviwadan) said in the clip. "If you're not checking for gift cards on, you're not taking full advantage of your Costco membership."

Tips For Maximizing Your Savings

Here are a few ways you can stack the savings when shopping for gift cards from Costco.

  • Pay with a cash back credit card to save an additional amount on the already-discounted gift cards.

  • While you can check out Costco's website for their gift card selection, it's worth visiting a Costco store nearby to see if they offer gift cards from local retailers.

  • Even if you don't want to give a gift card as a present, you can still use it to shop for a gift. And for added savings, try shopping with the gift card during a sale.

  • Make sure to periodically check the Costco website, especially during different holidays, as the selection of gift cards may vary by season and could be temporarily out of stock at certain times.

Oh, and it's worth mentioning that there are no additional fees or taxes added to the price of gift cards, so you can take full advantage of these deals!
