Costco Natural & Organic Price List Update

Costco Natural & Organic Price List Update

Costco Price List

Updated 4/14.

I have researched at our local Costco and listed  150 natural and/or organic grocery items.  Personally, I am excited to have this as a resource to access on my phone when I am shopping at different stores and wishing I could do some quick price comparing.

January 2013 when I first started putting this list together, I had the opportunity to conduct a phone interview with a Costco employee of 29 years.  She informed me of a few interesting facts about Costco, some of which I didn’t know.

First, Costco doesn’t have sales.  Any deals they offer is because they have worked and gone to bat for its members with the vendors.  The vendors are the ones who offer the discounts, and Costco passes those discounts along to its members.

Secondly, Costco has members.  Because Costco has a HUGE member base, with that buying power they are able to negotiate some outstanding deals.

Thirdly, Costco is not a store, but a warehouse club, so you get warehouse prices.

Here are some other facts:

  • Costco will FULLY refund your membership should you be dissatisfied for whatever reason.
  • Costco has an easy return policy.  There is a 90 days to return policy for select electronic products, so go here to read more about their return policy.  I personally have returned many items over the years (a least once a year) from a broken Shark (electronic mop) to bad produce and have had no problems.
  • Costco has less employee turnover than other companies in their industry, as they pay their employees the best wages.
  • Costco has a Concierge Service that assists with set up, warranty issues and gives technical support for most electronics.  Their phone number is 1-866-861-0450, available 5am-10pm (PST) 7-days a week.  I had to use them once because we had a faulty video camera and it was beyond the 90 days to return the product to Costco.  A lady at the return desk directed me to the Concierge Service, and they were able to help me get a brand new video camera.  This is a great resource!

I have listed below some selected natural and organic grocery prices.  The organic items are in bold.  For whatever reason Costco doesn’t always give a cost breakdown that is easily compared to other stores, so where I thought it would be valuable I have included ounce, pound, and liter cost breakdowns.  I broke up the grocery items into four separate categories:

  • Pantry Items, which includes baking items, canned goods, and snacks
  • Fresh Fruits and Veggies
  • Frozen, which are fruits and veggies, and
  • Refrigerated Perishables, which includes dairy, eggs, and meat items.

I included a column that says “Price/Quantity You Receive”.  That is the price Costco sells the item for with the quantities you get.  To clarify, let’s look at a few products like baking soda and organic black beansCostco sells a 13.5 pound bag of baking soda for $6.49, which is indicated: $6.49/13.5 lbs.  Costco sells eight cans of black beans that are 15 ounces each packaged together for $6.79 which looks like this in the spreadsheet: $6.79/ 8-15 oz.  So for $6.79 you will get eight cans of black beans, and each of those cans are 15 ounces.  I hope that makes things crystal clear.

Costco Whole Natural and Organic Grocery Price List Update

Unfortunately these prices are subject to change without notice, so these deals were valid April 2014, at the Marysville, Washington Costco and it will, at least, give you an idea of prices and what products may be in your area.

Remember EVERY time we go to the store we cast our votes.  Stores will stock the shelves with items WE buy.   The more we make better choices, the more we can make a positive change. I hope this list helps you!  You are welcome to “pin it “and share it on Facebook, if you like.

    Thank you SO much for this list!! Im actually considering getting a membership with them simply for the organic chicken and blueberries. I do a lot of shopping at Whole Foods, and a membership at Costco would pay for itself in less than 2 months.

  2. Tracy says

    Same for me – thank you for taking the time to compile, type and share this info. Costco is a drive away for me and we were considering whether or not we would check it out. Thank you for making us more informed!

  3. Jameal says

    Thank you for this list! I never realized COSTCO had so many natural and organic products. I was considering a COSTCO membership but I think I’m sold now!
