Sam’s Club just dropped the price of its hot dogs and sodas in a price war with rival Costco.

A hot dog combo from the warehouse of the club is now worth $1.38, compared to $1.50, the company announced on Wednesday, November 16th. Costco sells the same combo for $1.50.

“New lower price. The same great combination of a hot dog and a drink,” says an ad on the club store’s website. “Honestly, it can’t be beat.”

Sam’s Club said the new, lower price is here to stay and is “just another way to show that we care about every penny (literally)” that members spend. The Walmart-owned club also made that point during Tuesday’s earnings call rising inflation CNN Business reports what’s hitting shoppers’ budgets this holiday season.

“Members’ Dollar [is] going further at Sam’s Club also with lamb chops and lobster tails at prices more than 40% lower than last year,” said Walmart CEO Doug McMillan, according to the publication.

Sam’s Club and its rival Costco have managed to keep their hot dog prices low despite rising food prices.

The cost of “food outside the home”, which includes a comprehensive meal and snacks, is up almost 9% compared to last year, according to the latest consumer price index. The cost of hot dogs in particular, grew by 15% year-on-year in October, data show.

Costco in July raised the price on the two food court favorites, but assured customers that they don’t plan to touch the favorite hot dog combo.

“Today’s price is $1.50, and we have no plans to increase the price at this time,” Costco senior vice president Bob Nelson said earlier this year, according to Nexstar Media Group.

Starting Wednesday, Sam’s Club coffee shops will have new combo prices, no membership required, according to the club’s website.
