This Popular Costco Holiday Item Is Back and It's Inflation-Free

It's never too early to start gearing up for Christmas!

Costco appears to understand that we need stability in our lives. That's probably why they pledged not to raise the price of their $1.50 hot dog/soda combo. Nor have they messed with their roasted chicken that we can always depend on in a pinch.

Today, we have another reason to thank our oh-so-dependable warehouse.

Yes, it's only the first day of September, but the beloved Wine Advent Calendar is already available at Costco. According to Costco Insider, the set of half-bottles was spotted at a location in Waltham, Mass.

The cult-classic contains 24 half-bottles from around the world, so you can start gearing up for that Christmas excitement. It's technically a giftable set, though you'll probably want to purchase a calendar or two for yourself. Pro tip: Snag one ASAP. These go very quickly, and once they're gone, they tend to be gone for the season.

The best part? Just like last year, the price is $99.99, which comes out to be about $4 per half bottle.

This year, bottles include an Italian Chardonnay, a white wine from Hungary, a bold red from Spain, and a Syrah from France, along with many others.

Not a wine fan? We're crossing our fingers that Costco's beer advent calendar will be making an appearance this year, too. Last year, it sold for $59.99, and contained 24 German beers, 16.9 ounces each. This, too, sold out quickly. So far, no word on its return.

Last year, Costco also released a Rover Advent Calendar for Dogs, which was very popular until it met a little snag. Costco's Canadian members were urged to return their pups' calendars due to a product advisory.

You must have a Costco membership to purchase the advent calendars (or anything else at Costco), which appear to be sold in-store only, although you can purchase many of the popular inexpensive Costco wines online as well. Cheers!
