Prime drink is coming to Costco and it's going to be cheaper than anywhere else
| Last updated
You've probably seen that people have been behaving bizarrely lately in a bid to get hold of Prime.
Shops like Aldi and Asda have been ransacked of the stuff, with videos showing crowds of people emptying the shelves at supermarkets.
And when there is huge demand but limited supply, opportunism usually leads to skyrocketing prices.
But now Costco is selling the beverages cheaper than anywhere else.
Crates will be available in branches from today (Friday 13 January), with members able to buy two crates.
Each crate is priced at £18.58 for 12 bottles, meaning each drink will cost £1.55, according to the Manchester Evening News.
That is significantly less than people have been handing over at stores such as Wakey Wines, which was banned from TikTok after it advertised the drinks for upwards of £100.
In a recent video, owner Mohammed Nazir claimed a family had given him more than a grand for a few boxes of the beverages.
In the clip uploaded to social media, a man with two young boys revealed they'd travelled up to Wakefield from Lincolnshire and spent £1,070 in the store.
So that's a good 80 miles each way, which is expensive enough in fuel these days, never mind the £1,000 expenditure in the shop.
All in all then a preposterous trip for the family, particularly amid the cost-of-living crisis that is hitting lots of us very hard.
They're not on their own, though, as Wakey Wines has been sharing many videos just like the one above.
The other day, a woman said she'd travelled from Sheffield to spend £1,200 on Prime.
Unsurprisingly, there's a lot of people who haven't taken it to well, with some criticising the shop for seemingly ripping people off.
And in a bid to get some answers, someone actually went down to Wakey Wines to see the owner and ask him what's going on.
In a video posted to TikTok, the disgruntled customer can be seen charging into the shop to have a word with Nazir.
"Let's go confront Wakey Wines about extortionate prices," the man said.
"Yo, what's happening, lads? Where's boss man? Oh God, go get him for us, boss."
He then asked the other shopkeeper: "How do you sleep at night charging £20 for that Prime and £100 a can?"
To which the employee replied: "I sleep good, man."
