Costco Has Cheaper Gas Than BJs- But There is a Huge Catch

Today Costco’s gas price is lower than BJs gas price, but if you were to shop first at BJs and then fill up your tank, your gas would be cheaper at BJs today over Costco.

Let me explain die-hard Costco fans!

*Before you continue, if you love looking at how Costco stacks up to BJs, check out our latest post comparing Kirkland Prices to Berkley Jensen here.

I did a quick video below to give you a real-life look. This post is in no way sponsored by BJs Wholesale or Costco. It is because I love sharing the best deals with you no matter what!

This is at our local BJs in Western New York. BJs and Costco are 2.1 miles from each other.

Please keep in mind gas prices change frequently. We will update the post if we notice one or another rising above more excellent.

This is how our local Costco gas station looks. You pull in one way, just like BJs. There are two pumps on each side.


This is a close-up of BJs gas station. It looks a lot like Costco, except they have one pump on each side.

Again this will vary depending on your area. If you decide to leave, a comment feels free to share your state to give everyone an idea of how different things are regional.

Today April 29th, 2019, Costco gas is $2.73/gal, and BJ’s Wholesale Club is $2.77/gal.

The HUGE catch is if I buy one thing inside BJs right now I save 10¢/gal of gas which means I would pay $2.67/gal.

Check out the quick video below.

Right now, with BJs double gas promo, you can get gas for 2¢/gal! It may seem like I’m trying to push BJs, but I can’t help but write out the fact that taking time to shop inside BJs saves you more on gas-especially right now with BJ’s new High Octane Gas promo.

I would much instead get savings on my gas when I buy items inside BJs first.

Take a look at our Costco VS. BJs- Store Brand Items Post HERE.

Costco Gas is 4¢/gal cheaper NOT including BJs Gas Promos.

The gas difference from BJs to Costco is 4¢/gal WITHOUT including any gas promotions. So after gas savings at BJs- for buying items I would buy anyway, I’m saving at least 10¢ more per gallon depending on how many things I buy.

At Costco, you can save on gas with a credit card membership which is similar to BJs. We live a debt-free lifestyle and don’t use credit cards, which is why I won’t be including this option today or comparing gas by using a credit card. However, I am mentioning it for those who will participate in the comments, and it is an option to save on gas.

You can read Costco’s credit card gas savings here and BJs credit card gas savings here.

Keep in mind BJs has member fees for as low as $25 ( and renewals), and the regular price is $55.

Costco doesn’t run many membership discounts and is not as low as half off, and the regular membership fee is $60.

I enjoy both stores, but I prefer BJs. Stay tuned for my new video where we walk into Costco and BJs and see what each store feels like!
