Costco is known for its bargains, but did you know it’s also a place where you can buy a luxurious steak?

The retail giant sells a number of items that you might not consider buying during your weekly shopping trip.

Of course, there are some staples you should always buy in bulk at Costco, like bacon and laundry detergents. But there are also some surprisingly pricey items that may make sense to sweep up at Costco, too.

Here are seven things that Costco sells that you might not know about:

1. Coffins

Most people probably don’t realize that Costco has an entire funeral category, selling coffins in most states. Beyond caskets, which cost between $949.99 and $2,999.99, the company also sells a variety of urns.

Costco’s coffins, sold in partnership with Universal Casket Co., are very well reviewed.

“This purchase took much pressure off the difficult time of dealing with Mom’s funeral,” reads a review of the solid five-star rated Mother Casket. “She would have loved it, and it was her wish to do this… Funeral costs are very high, and this product and the people we dealt with were caring and professional.”

Costco has a number of vacation packages to destinations such as the Dominican Republic, Hawaii, and Fiji, and even a safari in the South African Savanna.

Packages include airfare and hotels, with different locations offering different perks. A visit to the Alsol Tiara Cap Cana resort in the Dominican Republic includes all meals, snacks, beverages, and minibar access for $509 a night. A trip through Lion World Travel includes a spa treatment, a wine tour, and sightseeing trips with prices starting at $4,699 for a weeklong trip.
