Kirkland Dupes at Costco – Best Products You Should Buy at Costco

Costco offers the Kirkland Brand and it can save you a lot of money. Many of the Kirkland products are private label from big brands. I have linked several similar or exact private label with brands so you can take a look on your own. Costco has confirmed some of these; some are speculated, and some are close. Hope this helps save you some cash!

Kirkland Signature Outdoor Socks v. Smart Wool

Kirkland has a high wool content – the weave is thick and I wear these socks (even though they are aimed toward men- size down for women) medium thickness and comfy! 72% Merino Wool, 27% Nylon, and 1% Spandex

Kirkland v. Roxbury Mountain

This Kirkland maple syrup is rich, real, and amazing quality. It is a higher priced grocery item – however no artificial flavors and not the high fructose corn syrup. Still much cheaper to buy Kirkland – about 30 an ounce cheaper. It comes in a plastic jug -gluten free – slight hint of molasses and it is large enough to last a year. Around $13.99

Kirkland Signature Shampoo v. Pureology

Kirkland’s shampoo and conditioner are absolutely amazing. It smells like Pureology and instead of $44 dollars it is much less to the tune of $12 – it is replenishes and moisturizes hair. Sulfate/ free and keeps my hair healthier, softer, and shiny.

Kirkland Facial Wipes v Neutrogena

I am a fan of Neutrogena; just not the prices. Kirkland’s has enough in a box to last me the year. They work on any skin type and do a great job of keeping my face clean – $15.99 for 180 and currently $4.00 off making it $11.99

Kirkland Wipes v. Pampers Wipes

Kirkland Aller-Tec v. Zyrtec

Okay… this is big money difference – Kirkland is 1/3 of the cost of Zyrtec. Package to package – appear to be the same. It is $13.99 for 365 tablets – it is important to note that the comparable Zyrtec at Costco is only 120 tablets and is

Kirkland Diapers v. Huggies

Another way to save a quick money – diapers appear to be Huggies in disguise. The size, quality is most aligned with Huggies. $35.99 Kirkland brand compared to $45.99 for Huggies.

Kirkland Vodka v. Grey Goose (same region, no collaboration)

I do not drink alcohol so I cannot say much on this – I have been told it’s close and for the 1/4 of Grey Goose price – worth a try! I would suggest that. Leave a comment and let me know
