I got my wife's rings from Costco. They can be returned anytime as long as the ring hasn't been resized (such as if the stone gets damaged). I know a few years ago there was a procedure where you could rack up crazy rewards since Costco used to issue checks for refunds for orders over several thousand dollars instead of processing it as a return to the credit card company. So you could buy a $10,000 ring, return it the same day, then use the check to pay the bill and pocket the reward miles.

I used to date a different girl who worked at Costco, and she showed me one trick I don't think I've ever seen posted before -- you can order food from the cashier when you are checking out at the main shopping area. So you don't have to wait in line for the dog - just ask them to put it on the order and then take your receipt over to the food counter and they should give you what you ordered. I've only used it at the store she worked at with her, so it might only work if you know the cashier ringing you up. PBUC.

Australia wishes it was as good at America at being useless idiots. Unfortunately for them, they are nowhere near close to as fat and they live substantially longer (for example a male lives 3-4 extra years on average than an American male).

They're really gonna have to step their game down to beat us.

Fair enough, but I was using the obesity numbers, not overweight and obese combined.

America has roughly 40-50% more obesity than Australia. The overweight numbers kind of mask the difference as so many people are overweight in general.

They had the codes for the whole pizza written on a sign behind the register when I went last.

This would have been so clutch if I had realized it too because I ended up waiting in line at the food court to get 2 whole pizzas when I could have done it at checkout.

Look dude I'm not going to argue with some guy that warns people about the dangers of carbonated water, and also complains like a little bitch about "the lefties" in GBS threads ok? Go back to your fallout shelter and stroke your guns.

By the way you can easily look up the carbonation claim and understand that you're full of poo poo, but that would require science which you presumably don't believe in.

Dude you gotta just ignore the people who make poo poo up about the dangers of carbonation and sugar substitutes. Youíre not going to convince them otherwise because they didnít arrive at their position through careful consideration in the first place.

Hey, I stand corrected on the carbonation thing. That was the last I had heard from both my doctor and my dentist. You're still a oval office though.

weirdly enough my costco doesnt have it. i swear they actually did have it, then got rid of it, but then maybe I'm just blurring all costcos together. it is one of the older 80s costcos tho so food court area isn't super big. iirc the one up by san ramon does tho
