I've recently gotten a membership to Costco Wholesale in addition to my BJ's Wholesale membership! It's hard to pass up a BJs membership when it's only $25 for the year.
When I compared BJ's produce prices to Aldi- Aldi won in terms of price. Yet I found the produce at either store can be a hit or miss. It all depends on where it's coming from and how quickly it moves off the shelf. If you're curious on the BJs Vs Aldi produce post tap here.
Today let's compare the produce prices at Costco Wholesale to BJ's wholesale club. We look at popular items like apples, corn, potatoes, salad and more. Don't let the first few fool you on the same price. One clearly takes the lead as you continue on.
Quick Facts About Costco Vs. BJs Club
Each wholesale club requires a membership to shop and make a purchase. We are comparing produce items only. I compared at stores in Rochester NY on the same day! Remember that produce prices will vary from region to region and what's in season.

I'm not affiliated with BJs or Costco. I'm a mom, animal lover, and blogger who loves sharing the best ways to save money with you at wholesale clubs.

Just curious what BJ’s you are shopping at. The prices are way higher than our local BJ’s.
Rochester, NY. Where are you?
I don’t buy produce at BJs. I buy produce at a local market where you don’t have to buy in quantity. We have a small family. Would love to see comparisons on other products such as house hold cleaners and detergents. Thank you.
Thanks Tasia, very interesting! I may have to check out Costco & do a comparison on the things I typically buy at BJ’s.
If it is near your BJs it’s worth a look to shop between the two.
