My Costco doesn't even sell regular brats and I feel like I'm being raped. I'm currently going to the elderly German lady who previously had to recall all her pork products and capitalising on her 10 for $10 deal on brats.

I got some turkey jerky that was on sale there about a year ago. I don't remember the brand, it could have even been Jack's Links. Either way it was loving terrible. I got like 3 packs because of the sale and I tried each of them once assuming that the next bag can't possibly be as bad as the last one. First time I've ever thrown a bunch of jerky out. I should make amends by buying some meat from Costco and making my own jerky with my dehydrator.

edit: God must have turned a blind eye here because the nearest place I've found tri-tip is at a butcher about an hour away. Those tri-tip steaks were cheap as hell around Seattle and that was my go to steak for a long time. Come back home to Wisconsin and I'm just ashamed. poo poo, I'm going to start calling around now again to see if any local places carry it.

edit 2: I JUST CALLED 2 GOD drat BUTCHERS AND THEY DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TRI-TIP (OR SANTA MARIA) STEAK WAS......... WHAT THE EVERFUCKINGFUCK?!

I mean, 50 bucks to get unlimited brats, kraut and spicy mustard at a buck fifty? Ok, that may be worth the membership.

I could get a few and it would last me all night.

The Amish often do really well financially, every young married couple gets a free house built for them, and they make and sell a lot of nice stuff that there is a demand for and keep it all in the family until there's a 7 or 8 figure net worth

Admittedly, Yeah. They're kick rear end. I've demoed a bunch of their different models and I'd only really suggest the manual model they sell at costco all the time. or the 5200, the classic.

Keep in mind, its a 7 year unlimited warrantee, on top of the Costco guarantee. So, yeah you can return it at any given time no questions asked, just keep the box. Only purchase it when it's on sale, which usually happens around Tax Season, mid-late august, black friday and christmas, when its the cheapest.

and yeah. If it was a lovely day, i'd end up standing there all day and nothing to show for it. Other days, I'd make over a grand.

Squabbles over other samples can get dicey. I've only seen it with older people. Within my first few months I saw a fragile indian grandmother push a child out of the way BY THE FACE for a 2 oz sample of a smoothie.

Ask the sample ladies at the Costco. Especially the ones who look the most "over" the job. One woman told me how she was handing out INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED AND APPROPRIATELY LABELED DOG TREATS and watched a man eat it as she pleaded him to stop.

I mean, they were those jerky treats...but still.
