i always enjoy watching people just loading up boxes upon boxes of wine at Costco. not a wine person but if I was i would probably be doing the same thing.

They probably host a lot of parties. Either that or they're stocking up their restaurant.

DIRECTIVE 236: Promote pro-social values


I bought a bunch of wine/beer for my wedding at Costco (can't buy liquor in NC except at state run stores) and learned there's a limit by law about how much alcohol an individual can buy at one time in my state. But Costco is super cool and just let my friend "buy" the other half of all the booze right behind me in line using the same Costco membership and credit card I used. PBUC

Got my credit card cash back in the email. Is this separate from the Executive dividend? Or combined?

It's separate, you get the 2% check from the executive membership about 6 weeks before your membership expires.

The thing that really sucks about Ohio is all the states that border it are also control states. I think we'd have to drive to New York or Illinois to experience a Costco liquor department.

Indiana has Costco liquor.

Unless you mean buying on a Sunday. Canít do that here for the moment. Thatís probably gonna change very soon though.

Does anyone have any knowledge about the Costco mortgage? Is it a decent deal or can you find better options elsewhere?

Why would you need a mortgage when all the amenities Costco provides would easily allow you to live right there in the store?

I have already tested this at the Covington location. Worked great but most people just walk by the kiosk and order at the register anyways.
Let me know when I can pre-order from the app on my phone.

I once waited 20 minutes at a Walmart "ship to store" area because they had a hard time finding my order. After standing in line at the cashier to pay, there was ANOTHER line to leave the store so they could check your receipt. gently caress that last line. That poo poo ain't costco. Walked out with some lady screaming "YOU HAVE TO WAIT". Sorry ma'am. Can't waste any more time in your lovely store.

Sam Walton was moderately acceptable, most of his Sam Club ideas he stole directly from Sol Price and Price Club. Price Club is where Jim Sinegal got his start.
The Walton descendants can go gently caress themselves though. They suck.

Seriously if you ever want to read about the birth of warehouse stores and Costco, read the Sol Price book: https://www.amazon.com/Price-Retail-Revolutionary-Social-Innovator/dp/0988680602
Jim Sinegal wrote the forward. I am still kicking myself that I did not buy it while it was in the warehouse as Jim would sign it if you caught him out and about.
