quote:

Nicksolat said she believes that over the course of her 12-year membership, she has returned one item a year on average, ranging from an unused TV and printer to various smaller food items.

The main issue for Nicksolat now, she says, is that she has items that she purchased before her membership was canceled and that she can no longer return.

I hope they lost their membership

I looked up her membership. This bitch is literally NEGATIVE overall in electronics over the past decade. Something like $8000 in sales and $8200 in returns. She can take her "I only return one item a year" and gently caress right off.

I like the part that I quoted, where she says she only does one return a year, then in the very next line, she says the main problem with her ban is that she can't return a whole bunch of stuff that she already purchased.

I'm sure it was 100% intentional by whoever wrote that article.

Do I need a receipt to return something to Costco? I bought a big box of pre-made frozen chicken sandwiches about 4 months ago, and I’ve only eaten one of them and it was disgusting (who could have guessed). They’ve just been sitting in my freezer ever since, too gross to eat but I feel bad about throwing away that much “good” food. Will they take it back?

Just say you didn't like it, don't bring in the food and you don't need a receipt.

Are these the offending chicken sandwiches in question?

You won't need a receipt, they can find it by looking up your membership. But if you really don't want it to go to waste, maybe see if someone you know might want them. If you take it back to Costco they will just throw it in the trash (but at least you'll get your money back).

Personally, I think those chicken sandwiches are awesome, even though they are probably just barely considered chicken.

Man, love the return chat on the last page or so. It was pretty clear printer lady's story was horse poo poo. It's REALLY hard to get your membership handed back.

One I heard from Canada online was a realtor who would stage homes for sale with Costco furniture and then return it all and move onto the next one. You'd think "hey that's basically fraud, send the excommunication papers". They just blocked him from being able to make returns from that department.

You think they'd just pay for a storage container. Seems like a better return than all the effort of schlepping everything around.

Can we just stop with the implication that expensive vodka is better?

The $12 handle of vodka is as good or better than the supposed "grey goose" vodka. If anything you should just buy a handle of Grey Goose, drink it, and then refill it with the $12 handle for the rest of your days.

No one will ever, EVER tell the difference. I challenge you to get a few people you know and blind test the two bottles.

Vodka in general is a ludicrous scam based almost entirely on placebo and brand fellatio.


Sweet thanks for the heads up!

My liver and morning sweats say gently caress you. I can tell the difference based on amount consumed. Bring it.

I know some people that are the same, though their hang up is usually after a really bad experience -- like drank half a bottle of tequila and ended up with mild alcohol poisoning.

They wont touch cheap poo poo, but like a shot of $150 Don Julio they can tolerate.

After a bad experience with ultra expensive tequila, I pretty much stay away from it.

It wasn’t even me really, my sister ended up in the hospital with mild alcohol poisoning and tried to pick fights with the nurses and almost got thrown in jail.

Even I was like “hey, gently caress it. give her the ativan, if she dies, she dies”.

But I’ll still crush pitchers of margs, don’t get me wrong. But the taste of it straight up just brings the memories right back.
