Stores such as Sam's Club, Costco and BJ's Wholesale Club are able to offer discounts because they use a wholesale retail model. They offer items in bulk or large sizes, which tends to make items cheaper per unit. They are a good place to find affordable sports equipment, patio furniture, tires and luggage. They are also handy places to find everyday items such as toilet paper, plastic wrap, shampoo, batteries and paper towels, as bulk sizes can make the most of items that get used up quickly. Many stores also offer discounts on foods such as meat and frozen foods.

Although warehouse stores offer plenty of good deals, sometimes the larger sizes may not be necessary. Items that go bad over time such as olive oil, produce, laundry detergent, spices and skincare products may not be used before their expiration dates, which makes the savings on larger sizes pointless, according to Generations Federal Credit Union. In addition, some larger department stores and online stores may offer cheaper prices or larger discounts on items such as books, DVDs and clothing.

Amazon.com is a handy place to find warehouse discounts while shopping online. The "Warehouse Deals" division of its website offers steep discounts on open-box items that were sold and then returned to the warehouse. It also offers used items through its warehouse.
