On TikTok, user @erikakullberg (who also happens to be a money lawyer) posted about a Costco Black Friday hack that's a shopping gamechanger. Essentially, if there's a certain Costco product you'd like to buy before it sells out on Black Friday, but you still want those special savings, you can still purchase the item now and get a price adjustment later.

"I've actually read the terms and if you buy anything at Costco online and it goes on sale within 30 days after you buy it, just fill out this quick online [price adjustment] form and they'll price-match and give you a gift card for the difference," says @erikakullberg.

This is confirmed on the Costco website, where it reads, " will gladly issue a credit for the difference between the price you paid and the promotional price, if your purchase was made online at and was within 30 days prior to the change in price. Credits are typically issued within three to five business days."
