So I found a flaw in my 6 pack of Costco white undershirts. One of them is like an XL or something lol. I put the drat thing on and it was like a tent but it was clearly marked M.

No loss Iím gonna wash it and see how it shrinks so I know what to do with my next order but it was hilarious because it took me a solid minute to figure what the gently caress was up with that shirt. I had one other M left to wear.

They set up a self serve kiosk at the food court. 6 menu touch screens and you bring a reciept to the counter. It's placed where the line used to be and kind of annoying and in the way and not good :|

Costco has really good prepared protein shakes. Premier Protein I believe.

Chocolate and vanilla are fine. I thought I'd like the banana but I don't think it was very good.

All of the reviews on these mention that occasionally you get a bad shake, but Iíve been through four boxes and hadnít hit a bad one ó until today. Tasted like frothy battery acid and cigarette butts. I knew something was off, it didnít feel/sound right when I shook it, and it was weirdly foamy when I opened the cap, so look out for that.

Theyíre normally really good but Iím admittedly a little gunshy now

Yah lots of accounts in Canada at least have either monthly flat fee and/or minimum account balance with only a few included transactions at the big ripoff banks.

These accounts suck but people do have em :shrug:

Lol one has transaction fees of $1.25 ea after your 12 included https://www.cibc.com/en/personal-banking/bank-accounts/chequing-accounts/everyday-chequing-account/fees-and-details.html

There are a few banks that are much better, especially the ďvirtualĒ ones (no physical branches) like Tangerine and Simplii.

PBUC alert!

So a lot of people don't know this but you can preorder 50 roses for valentines day at Costco for just $50 and they will deliver them to you for free, either the day of, or a selection of other days that you can select. They've been doing it for years.

Well my flowers are arriving tomorrow, and the UPS tracking says that they are being sent Worldwide Express.

I used to work at UPS during college. Worldwide Express means that they'll basically get the package anywhere in the world in 3 days.

The other benefit is that it usually arrives around 10am the day of, and they tell you on the tracking page when it will arrive. They're probably spending like half the cost of the flowers on shipping? I dunno but... PBUC

Unfortunately it's something they do pretty far in advance. I think I ordered mine 2-3 weeks ago.

Also those aren't the roses in question. They already took all of the 50 rose deals off the site.

e: you can get the gist from this Slickdeals page about it:

Haha, unfortunately I am not surprised. Slickdeals is jam-packed with the worst, most frugal and "logical" idiots this side a Python convention.

However it's also the best place to find deals on the internet. Just don't make an account and lurk and you'll be pretty amazed at the stuff you'll find, even if you just check the front page every couple of days.

e: you'll also notice if you go to the recent comments that some people are getting the flowers delivered on a different day, or the flowers aren't the exact ratio they ordered (35/15 yellow/white instead of 25/25) and they are getting full refunds.

The people who post a lot on Slickdeals are seriously human garbage. They will take any advantage of anything, including lying, to save a few bucks.

I know of a place where $50 can get you quite a lot of liquor.
