Shopping at this time last year was a nightmare, no getting around it. We had shortages on so many everyday items due to the coronavirus pandemic, and some of them are still lingering on to this day. Super depressing to try and get toilet paper or disinfecting wipes in 2020, remember? Hopefully, with this fourth surge of the pandemic we won't be caught so short.

  • Chocolate Premier Protein Shakes. Currently, there is a purchase limit of four packages per trip, for both online and warehouse purchases. This seems to be a limit per membership for the duration of the promo sale, which goes through August 29
  • Kirkland Signature Diapers. Only two can be purchased at a time, with a discount  of $9
  • Peet's Coffee. The two lb bags currently have a limit of five
