Costco price per pound on meat negotiable

Last week while shopping at our business Costco (caters their products more toward businesses) I was looking at the beef when I noticed that the whole filet mignon was past the sell by date. Because its vacuum sealed I knew it was probably alright and not really expired. So my husband suggested I ask if they would give a discount per pound for it. I thought to myself, no way this is Costco, but I asked. To my surprise, the meat manager said yes he would. I picked up a good quality cut of beef for $7.09 pp (vs. $9.09 originally marked). So I thought I'd pass on the word that it doesn't hurt to ask if they will discount the meat if you find it past the sell by date..

Wow, Angiefalangee that is a great find, thanks for posting it. We have had a Costco Membership since 1994 & eyed the Whole Filets.

Learned watching Alton Brown on Food TV Network Show "Good Eats" that he buys Whole Filets at Costco and slices them
into steaks to freeze. DH will like this news!

I have done the same in my local super markets. If I notice a meat is at or near sell buy date ( especially if cryovac-ed) I will ask if I could get a discount. It is good to make friends with the meat manager. I write down stores, product and sell buy date and then try to get there first thing in the morning the day after the sell buy date. I have purchased sausage, kielbasa, pre-made angus hamburgers etc for between $1-$2/lb.

I asked the meat managers if they get credit for unsold products, he told me no and by me taking some of these items it helps his department profit/loss ledger.
