Unfortunately, there's a possibility that becoming a member will become more expensive soon. According to MSN, Costco has a history of increasing membership fees approximately every six years.

Last year, the company's CFO, Richard Galanti, mentioned that it has been longer than six years since the last fee adjustment and suggested that one is coming sooner rather than later.

He stated, "In our view, it's a question of when, not if." While this significant change hasn't occurred yet, the store did recently update another major policy, which you can learn about below.

Shoppers love the bulk items they can purchase but the food court inside the store is also very popular. I had a coworker back in the day who would go to Costco every day for a cheap lunch. He would get a giant slice of pizza or hotdog with a soda for around 3 bucks.

Parent Tip: Did you know you can order whole pizzas from Costco? This is a great place to order from when you're hosting a birthday party and need to get a lot of pizza. Their pizzas are gigantic and only cost around $10.

Up until now, non-members have been able to order from the food court, but that appears to be ending. I don't think they were supposed to, but the rule was never enforced. Costco's around the country now have signs posted that say an active Costco membership will be required to order items from the food court menu.
