The most coveted item of 2020 is not a piece of designer clothing or a hard-to-find, limited-edition children’s toy, it’s face masks. First, people started panic-buying the N95 masks healthcare workers desperately need and we quickly ran into shortage problems. Then, when the CDC recommended everyone wear at least some type of face-covering in public, trying to find a mask while supplies were already low became even more difficult. Luckily, lots of retailers and small business owners stepped up to the plate and started making cloth face masks for the public to purchase -- including Costco, of course.
If there were ever a time to invest in a Costco membership, this is it because Costco is now selling reusable face masks (and disposable face masks, too) online for a bargain. The retailer first started selling just the disposable masks about two months ago, but now they’ve got reusable ones, so you can be more eco-friendly. And best of all, they’re an absolute bargain at just $24.99 for eight masks -- that’s about $3 each -- so it’s basically the cheapest price we’ve ever seen. They’re triple-layered and come in a variety of colors and patterns.

The disposable face masks sold by Costco come in a pack of 50 so one box will last you a good long while. But to prevent the panic-buying situation we saw earlier, Costco has limited the number of boxes you can purchase per membership. Each membership will only be allowed to purchase three packages -- and same limit for the reusable masks.
Some Costco stores may also be selling other reusable cloth face masks. Costco Instagram fan account @CostcoGuy4U posted a picture of these cloth face masks for sale at Costco but it’s unclear which Costco location these are located in.

The account profile says they’re located in Chicago but we can’t be sure that’s where the picture was taken. It’s worth checking your local store to see if they’re available because $9.59 for three masks is a pretty great deal.
In the meantime, if you’re looking for reusable face masks you can order online right now, we’ve got plenty for you to choose from.
