I saw toddlers in a restaurant without masks on once and wouldn't shut the fuck up about it for days afterwards. Please ask me more about passing judgement on parents for not making their kids wear masks in a facility where food and beverages are consumed.

I did appreciate the bulk almond milk though, and the 12 pack of fake sausages

I just went on a date with a woman that has the Costco credit card, so maybe I should ask for a date at Costco? That's romantic right

Is Costco worth it for me, the typical pathetic single male goon? Most of the food stuff is too much for one person, except stuff that lasts a long time I guess.

I don't really drive much, so the cheaper gas isn't a big thing for me.

You should probably buy all your beer, wine, booze, and tp at Costco. The fresh deli stuff is good for a couple of meals as well, I liked making them on a Sunday and having a few nights worth of food.

If the clothes fit you might as well get them too, and then of course the jerky and snacks are top tier.

get one of those vacuum pump things and freeze everything, stockpile TP and you can easily make it worth your while.

Itís been worth it for me. I buy pretty much everything Costco though. Clothes, household goods, etc. As far as food goes they have good stuff for one person but itís mostly frozen. Stuff like the frozen bags of chicken breasts and 5lb bags of frozen mixed vegetables are a staple in my diet.

And 1.50 hot dogs with free drink refills

Everyone is talking about rebates. Is this the Costco Citi card or the executive membership rebate?

They're excellent for eggs, fish and frozen vegetables even if you're single. They're also great for laundry detergent, paper products and lots of rice and grains. They also sell giant bags of greens and tons of baked goods, depending on your greens and baguette consumption.

Have you guys tried the Kirkland seasoned slice roast beef. I’ve always steered away from it because it’s $7/lb and other stuff is cheaper but this is one of the best damned sandwiches I’ve ever made.

We prefer the Columbus brand, but the Kirkland stuff is real good too.

I used to buy those giant Oscar Meyer 3packs of ham or turkey and wonder why I never wanted to finish them. Now I know it's because they were gross pressed reconstituted meat product

Yes and itís quite decent. Not the very softest out there but more than adequate and very hard to beat for the price. They had a Kirkland premium option a while back that owned but I havenít seen it in ages.

My wife and I do almost all of our spending on the Costco card, but it wasn't $70,000!

Sounds like heaven compared to the wood pulp TP here in Asia, poo poo might as well be hemmoroid paper for all itís worth. I canít wait to move back to the US and buy 50 rolls and plush TP and then eat a dog and drink + FREE refill

Like if I break it down by category probably $4,000 on gas, $5,000 on travel, $7,000 on restaurants, $10,000 at the 'Co.

The card has really, really good cash back rewards.

You shouldn't be doing all of your spending on the Costco card. That's flushing a decent chunk of money down the toilet.

Get a 2% generic cash back and use that for everything that the Costco card doesn't cover (you're only getting 1% on the other purchases).

If he knows then why is he leaving half his generic cash back on the floor. I'm not making some kind of judgment on his character, I'm just saying that it's straight up bad fiscal policy to put all of your spend on the Costco visa.

I just realized that if I shifted all of my spending (mostly Amex today) to the Costco Visa last year, I would have received a five figure refund.

Why the gently caress do I have an Amex any more is what Iím wondering.

Yes the generic cash back isnít good but the other categories with more refund would get me there.

You specifically said you do almost all of your spending on the Costco Visa so I took that at face value. Don't worry, your BFC cred is fully intact.

Read this article titled "The shocking truth behind Costco's $5 rotisserie chicken"

"The tender meat often contains several ingredients including sugar and salt -- even going so far to compare it a potato chip. In addition, the skin is flavored with MSG, sugar and other natural flavors. This combination helps explain why we can't have enough of the chicken. "

Holy hell, they season the chicken!

Your Citi card rewards will be emailed to you after your February statement closes. Your executive member rewards will be mailed to you the month your membership renews.

I hope all you guys using these cards for cash back are actually paying off the balance each month otherwise your losing way more money to interest than you are getting back.
