    thats why you now see the sign saying they reserve the right to search you
    My annual reward check says youíre wrong. Also, never been searched. Thatís weird.

    Back on topic, their balsamic vinegar is legitimately really good and dirt cheap.

    Notice how much easier it is to navigate now that the free samples booths have been reduced?
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    Yup. However, i miss being able to cobble a together a light meal. But, I hope it never comes back. I shudder at the thought of that vector, victor.

    user has to pay for membership to shop at Costco, you gotta buy a lot of shit hopefully at a discount which must make up that membership cost, i never found much of a saving over the local food stores to be honest
    even when it wasnt 4 hrs away the amounts they want to sell you things in are not worth it for 1 person

    so in other words user has to spend a LOT of money to maybe save money, my take is its way cheaper not spending all that money SO I still have all my money cuz i am not the model costco consumer heaping shit into the f-150 till its level with the top of the bed


    you probably were never a contracter in Canada, in any case it wasnt just them it was a number of companies thinking they could break the law and fuck with their contracters

    First one I was in was in Missoula, Montana on a bike trip. Invaluable resource to feed eight hungry cyclists every night. Or, the occasional party.

    I have one about ten miles away, so, I'm not passing the five supermarkets along the way to get to those awesome 5 dollar roasted chickens. I don't need a new flatscreen, no room on the counter for a new appliance (although an air fryer beckons), and, I live in an apartment. Be kinda cool to have a five pound bag of pistachios around, though.

    I resemble that comment. I suppose she wouldn't like to join me for some Kirkland Chateau de Cardboard out of plastic cups in the parking lot?

    I work 0.5mile from the Kirkland, WA costco, and live about 4 miles from another one. I have a fruit smoothie 6/7 days s week so bulk bags of frozen fruit are clutch. Dog food, dog flea meds, bone broth, rice, kelly gold butter, canned chili, bacon, quinoa, organic extravirgin olive oil, and mixed nuts are my staples. I don't EVER venture to the middle of the store- that's where you get suckered into buying shit you don't need.

    Fresh off a morning visit.

    Kirkland paper towels seem to be superior in every way to anything Iíve used on the market.

    Almond butter - no contest

    Jumbo lump crab @ 30 bux it ainít Maryland but itís a great and very reasonable sub.

    24 pack of spindrift @11.99? Cmon man

    I like to refer to the roasted chickens as a ď national treasure ď

    But thatís just me I guess.

    For us the biggest savings come in the form of nuts (walnuts and almonds mostly), oils, and frozen fruit. I probably wouldn't drink smoothies every morning if I had to pay grocery store prices for nuts and frozen fruit. Or maybe I would and it would be a lot more expensive. The little cherry tomatoes are also very well priced compared to the half sized version at the super market (~$6 for 2lbs vs $5 for 1lb), but we don't end up with as much savings on them as we only go to Costco once in a while and you can't stock up on those. Same with flour. WAY cheaper, but maybe $10-15 in savings a year as we don't buy it that often. Every so often I probably buy something that I don't need, but it's almost all consumables - food, paper products, etc. so even if we could get away with less in the short term, it's not as if we're going to have the toilet paper go stale on us. When my son was still in diapers, we bought/saved even more compared to other local options.

    The biggest thing that Costco ever saved us money on was our mortgage. Having gotten some quotes elsewhere and started the process with the lowest, we went through Costco's portal and got lower quotes, which we then lowered even further by playing the different Costco portal offers off one another. Costco also caps fees for participants and that alone was enough of a difference to pay for our membership for years.

    Edit: Also another vote for the merino socks. They're basically all I wear. They don't last as long as Darn Tough, but they're much cheaper, I really like the feel, and they get less stinky than any other brand I've tried (save maybe Icebreaker).

    Edit2: My local store now has Alesmith samplers for like $20. That's a great deal on good beer.

    .
    Don't have that up here most people get a mortgage at one of 5 large class A banks

    but it almost sounds like it would be worth being in America

    A bag of maseca costs maybe a dollar. That's like 10000 tortillas.

    Pro tip: go in the exit and just grab a dog. If they give you shit, say you are picking up a script, it's illegal for them to refuse you.

    I know this is not a popular opinion, however, I don't really like their hot dogs. I'd tolerate them if the buns weren't gross.

    I don't think XXX understood what you were saying. I'm an executive member and get a rebate every year that's for more than my membership costs. The cashback on their credit card is also excellent.

    I live 10 minutes from one. I probably buy 2/3 to 3/4 of my groceries there. Prime sirloin was $7/lb today. Most of the produce is literally half what it costs at a regular grocery store and the quality is usually better.

    He also doesnít have two food vacuums living with him. No question we save money there. Most trips are all business, though. The flashy stuff loses its luster after a while. But if seasonal shit you need is on sale, buy that shit even though itís four months early cause itís almost always a good deal and itíll be long gone by the time you actually need it.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.
