Costco versus Amazon Prime — which membership offers more value?

When it comes to Amazon Prime and Costco, belonging to one retail club is often enough.

While many like to double-dip, being a member of both should come down to a person’s habits — if they don’t use either membership enough there’s a risk of it becoming a budget-buster. Rachael Blum, a 27-year-old aerospace engineer from West Palm Beach, Fla., recently chose to cancel her Costco COST, +0.99% membership.

An Amazon AMZN, +1.33% Prime member for about five years, she had found herself rarely going to Costco and instead using the free shipping and subscription services to stock up on household necessities, making her membership to the warehouse club somewhat of a waste.
