Kirkland-branded crap that I use on a daily basis:
-paper towels
-toilet paper
-wet toilet wipes (are these the same as the baby wipes?)
-coffee
-allergy pills
-multivitamins
-bar soap (the knockoff Dove)
-liquid handsoap
-bath towels
-pepper and spices

Kirkland products I use, but not every day:
-laundry detergent
-peanut butter
-generic Advil
-meat

I also get 100% of my toiletries there, but most of that are branded products, not Kirkland.

Just one question, though. Is there a way to take off my pants?

I have a bad thing about Costco! My cousin's baby had a diaper rash of such tenacity it became common family gossip. And when they finally identified the culprit? Kirkland Signature Baby Wipes.

Yo while it is hilarious that his cousin's baby is getting butthurt by Kirkland Signature Baby Wipes, we must be gentle Costco apostles as we guide those who Costco(pbuh) sometimes trespasses against.

Lacey, tell your cousin to return the opened package to Costco for a FULL FREAKING REFUND! And then buy a 1.50 hot dog and soda.

I've used Kirkland wipes for my kids for years with no issues.

You can always wait and buy the Huggies wipes for the same price when they go on sale every 4 months if you're really that paranoid about Kirkland (you shouldn't be)

Oh yeah among the awesome things Costco has is a badass refund/return policy. I got one of those fancy Keurig machines as a birthday present, and the drat thing has died literally 4 times since I bought it. Every time it does, Costco gives me a replacement with zero hassle. Best part? The model I have comes with easily like $30-40 worth of K-cups (it comes with a box of the Carafe ones that make a full pot's worth too), so every time it breaks I end up with a bunch of free coffee!

Anyone get tires at Costco? Can you special order tires? I have pretty low profile & wide tires. Prices seem right tho.

I bought my last set there. Can't say for sure what you can order, but of course the tire monkey at the store can tell you. However, you can't beat the service, warranty, or the product. Got a great set of tires on sale over a year ago and they don't even look worn yet.

Also, some babies CAN be sensitive to products you use every day. It's not unheard of. Not sure why people are hating so hard on the person who posted about the Kirkland's wipes being an issue for their baby. Maybe they suggested the wipes are inherently bad, and that offended people, but come on...Personally my oldest son had terrible rash when using Walmart's wipes, while my youngest has basically never had diaper rash of any kind with any wipe from any store.

Yeah straight from the store, anova one, the chicken comes airtight and I've had no issues yet besides having to clean some cooked chicken juice off the meaties. It's next level convenience. Costco be praised.

I am a devout Costco man but the free membership and the promotional 10¢ off a gallon is tempting me to check it out when it opens.

We used to go to BJ's before the Costco opened here. I always kind of remember it as a slightly grubbier Costco.

I do remember that they used to have a giant chain-linked area where they'd toss all the shipping boxes and let customers use them to hold the poo poo they bought; one time the door in was open and you better believe 10-year-old me took a sprinting gainer into the giant mountain of boxes.

Their frozen tubes of ground beef are legit. Not overground or too mushed together. The other day, I defrosted a tube, sliced it up into quarters, took the plastic off, and just flattened them down into burgers.

You can check on their website for special orders, they just ship to your warehouse in a couple days. I got 4 dope all weather tires for my TSX (which I guess is not a special size though) installed and everything for significantly less money and hassle than any surrounding tire place. I piggy backed on my gf membership and the tires have nitrogen in them!!! Even got a HOT DOG AND SODA FOR $1.50. I think I get lifetime tire rotations too.

I strongly recommend Costco Tire Service.

If you aren't in a rush to buy tires, try to time your purchase around their frequent sales. Right now it is $70 off a set of Bridgestones, until 4/26/2017.
