Also I heard they search your bags for drugs or something when you go on a cruise, what's the point if you're not smoking assloads of weed while trapped on a boat for 10 days

I've gone to Cancun and Punta Cana through them, and I've gotten free upgrades and Costco cash cards from my executive membership, would definitely keep using them.

Also they have partnerships with Hyatt and Best Western so consider that for a discount whenever you need to travel somewhere.

I got a 36 pack of coors light last nite for like 22 bux :smug:

I'm in Wisconsin so the alcohol prices aren't much different. I can get a 12 pack of Milwaukee's Best (still made at Miller), for about 5-6 bucks. That's just at gas station. Pretty sure we have one of the lowest booze prices in the country and we have our mass amounts of DUIs to prove it.

They do but I've never really looked at them. poo poo, you can get cheese curds in some gas stations here. Proof that the lord god loves us.

When I lived in Seattle, my sister in law sent me a poo poo ton of cheese curds from Wisconsin in a cooler pack shipping box thing. They were great, as usual.

The first time I saw my Costco selling chilli at the food court is when they were also selling a big rear end plastic container of the stuff at the deli, and they haven't sold it there since then :(.

You can walk out of Costco with a new cell phone/plan, a new dishwasher, contact lenses, a 5lb block of fancy cheddar, and an Omega Seamaster watch. What a country!!!

I haven't done a cruise, but I did a flight+hotel package, and it included airport transfers which was nice. The package was about $400 less than what I would have paid for cash, and the hotel even gave us a bottle of fake champagne at check in.

I have to go to Costco for an eye exam tomorrow. I'm bringing my dad's membership card and gonna cross my fingers the guy at the register doesn't check the photo too closely. Not worried about getting stopped at the door since I'm going to the optical department first.

I don't like the look of it...

Also if you aren't doing your car rentals through Costco you're doing it wrong. Last time we were in Vegas we had done our car rental through the 'Co, and we were going to rent a minivan because there were 6 of us. Turns out that because we booked through Costco we not only got a hilariously low rate, they upgraded us for free. So instead of having a minivan we got upgraded into a baller rear end Escalade for no charge at all.

The dudes at the Costco where I grew up never cared about that, Id flash my parents' membership card and stroll in without a second thought. good luck friend I bet they'll let you in.

are they the real poo poo? to they squeak when you chew them? I was in switzerland years ago and we hiked up a mountain to visit a family that lives way up in a high saddle of the alps with no running water or electricity. they make cheese which they trade to the village below in exchange for money and supplies, all of which is transported on a ridiculous pulley system that goes all the way down the side of the mountain. we ate some of their cheese curds and they were the best gd curds of my life

Ok so I'm trying to justify the cost of just owning up and buying my own drat membership. The thing is, meat and cheeses and produce are great but it's just me and my wife and even supermarket produce has a tendency to go bad because we wait too long. So I'm trying to compile a list of non-perishables that justify the membership cost. So far I've got:

-Frozen veggies & chicken for stir fries
-Paper towels/TP/Kitchen wipes
-Bar and hand soap
-Laundry detergent
-Those microwave veggie bowls
-Olive oil

Any other major items worth stocking up on?

If you use any kind of allergy meds one single bottle pays for your membership a few times over.

TBH I just looked up paper towels and TP and it's actually cheaper to buy 3 12-packs of TP at stop&shop than a 36-pack of the same brand at Costco :(

gonna have to do more research tomorrow
