How much is the Costco hot dog combo?
Longtime Costco CEO Craig Jelinek recently revealed how the big-box retailer has managed to maintain its $1.50 price point for a hot dog-and-soda combo despite an inflation surge over the last year. Jelinek, the top boss at Costco since 2012, said in-house production of hot dogs has helped the company keep costs lower.
Sam’s Club Food Court Just Dropped Hot Dog & Soda Combo to ONLY $1.38 Cheaper Than Costco!
Sam’s Club just announced their newest offering: $1.38 Hot Dog & Soda combos, making them the cheapest of any bulk retailer. After Costco’s recent increase in the price of a similar item to $1.50, Sam’s Club is clearly hoping to capitalize on the market gap and become the go-to place for quick and cheap snack lunch items.
How This Deal Makes Sam’s Club Even More Attractive
Sam’s Club’s new deal isn’t just a big deal because it offers a cheap and quick snack. This deal also makes Sam’s Club even more attractive of a destination for food shoppers.
- Increased Variety: With this deal, Sam’s Club now has a surprisingly wide variety of meal options. In addition to the Hot Dog & Soda combo, they also offer a Hamburger & Fries Combo, Pizza & Drink Combo, as well as Nachos & Drink Combo.
- Different Meal Deals: Sam’s Club is also introducing new meal deals which combine multiple items into one much cheaper priced package. For example, their “4 for $4” meal deal includes a hot dog, fries, a cookie and a drink for just $4!
- Price Gap Opportunity: Finally, Sam’s Club is also taking advantage of the gap in prices that Costco’s increase created. After Costco’s price increase, there was more room for a bargain priced retailer to come in and make a splash. With their new $1.38 Hot Dog & Soda combo, Sam’s Club is making that splash.
Sam’s Club has just become even more attractive of a destination for food shoppers. With their new low priced Hot Dog & Soda combo, their increased variety of meal options, and their new meal deals, Sam’s Club is setting itself up to become the go-to place for quick and cheap snack lunch items.
