'Typically Gone Within a Few Hours': This $1,900 Costco Product Is Flying Off Shelves Costco only offers the exclusive product online to members.
- Costco is selling gold bars that cost around $1,950 to $1,980.
- The wholesaler provides insured air shipping but doesn't accept returns.
Costco is known for its wide variety of deals and exclusive products, from bulk items to goods only available at the wholesale retailer. However, it's not just groceries and home goods.
Available only through Costco's website and exclusive to members, the gold bars come with insured, signed-for air shipping through UPS. However, according to the listings, they can't be returned or refunded.
Despite the hefty price tag, the gold is flying off the shelves, Costco's CFO Richard Galanti said during the company's quarterly earnings call on Tuesday. Galanti revealed that these bars are in high demand and rarely stay in stock for long.
"I've gotten a couple of calls that people have seen online that we've been selling one-ounce gold bars," he said. "Yes, but when we load them on the site, they're typically gone within a few hours, and we limit two per member."
According to the personal finance platform GoBankingRates, the current estimated price of a one-ounce gold bar is $1,823.34.
