Costco and BJs are the two biggest rivalries when it comes to wholesale clubs. I am a member at both and am falling in love with Costco!
Here’s the thing, my heart has belonged to BJs for over 10 years and it’s closer. I also love couponing and extreme deals.
Yet I can see many awesome deals at Costco as well.
With back to school items out on shelves and soon to be off shelves I thought it would be fun to compare a few of the popular back to school snacks at BJs and Costco for price.
Let’s find out who is cheaper, or if these two wholesale clubs have the same prices for school snacks.
Honest Kids Organic Juice
Both BJs and Costco sell the exact same size in this item. 32 ct 6.75 oz each. BJs sells it for $11.99.

Nature Valley Biscuits
Costco sells the Nature Valley Biscuits with Almond Butter in a 30 pack for $15. BJs sells Nature Valley Biscuits Variety in a 30 pack for $12.99. Keep in mind BJs would accept a manufacturer coupon on this item as well,
Costco sells GoGurt Simple, 16 strawberry, 16 Mixed Berry for $9.50. The difference I see is the amount of sugar. BJ’s sells the Yoplait Gogurt with 16 strawberry and 16 mixed berry for $6.99. The item at Costco has 6 g of sugar per tube. The item at BJs has 8 g of sugar per tube.
WINNER: BJ’s but it would depend on if you want to spend more for less sugar. Hard to really say on this one.
Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers
Nabisco Cookie & Cracker Variety Pack
Each wholesale club offers a slight variation on this pack. Costco you get Ritz Bits Cheese, Chips Ahoy, Oreo Minis, Nutter Butter Bites, and Ritz Bits Peanut Butter in the box.
At BJs you get Oreo, Ritz Bits, Chips Ahoy, Teddy Grahams and Nutter Butter Bites.

Mott’s Medleys Fruit Flavored Snacks
This item is part of the Box tops program too. When you buy two you get $5 in box tops.
Frito Lay Classic Mix Variety Pack
My husband loves when I buy these, usually once a year! I always grab them at wholesale clubs. At Costco you will get a variety of Frito lay that includes:
- 12-Doritos Nacho Cheese
7-Doritos Cool Ranch
4-Lay’s KC Masterpiece BBQ
4-Lay’s Sour Cream & Onion
The price at Costco is $15 for 54 bags. That’s only 28¢ a bag.
At BJ’s you get a variety of Frito lay that includes Fritos, Lay’s Classic, Cheetos Crunchy, Doritos Nacho Cheese, Lay’s Sour Cream and Onion. You get 50 bags for $13.99. This is 28¢ a bag.
In conclusion BJ’s won for overall cheaper price. I’ve heard many other shoppers say BJ’s is a better deal for name brand items. Costco is the better deal for their own store brand items. I will be shopping mostly at BJs for my back to school snacks this year!
