The only problem with getting soft close toilets seats is that you get so accustomed to them that you forget that not everyone has them, leading to lots of slamming toilet seats when you are a guest at someone else's home.

Wifeís car battery died yesterday so time for a new one I guess (5 years old now)

Costco batteries are good right? I hear they take the old battery back, does it have to be at time of purchase or can I drop it off a few days later?

When I was in the market for a deep cycle marine battery I was budgeting over $200 to order it from Amazon. Instead I bought a better one from Costco for $90 out the door, lol

You can buy stuff from Costco.com without a membership, you just have to pay a 10% surcharge.

Oh, Dee, you card. :-*

Went to Toronto for the week and on the way back home decided to stop at our first Canadian Costco. It was super busy but we wound up getting $80 worth of stuff up to the checkout line before we discovered they don't take Visa at all. Wouldn't take our debit because they're Visa too. Six cards between us, all visa. Costco credit card? Nope it's a visa. Sure would have been nice to know but of course there are no credit card merchants listed anywhere on doors or anything. Then the manager and the cashier were both pissed at us because it took 5 min to override and void. Pretty terrible experience overall. Would not recommend.

I had the mirror experience in a US costco one time a few years back, they wouldnít take MasterCard and my debit card didnít work because it had a chip in it or something.

Last couple times Iíve gone theyíre fine though (MC only in Canada at costco, used to be amex only and no one has amex)

Also was just in the food court here and some kid (13-14) is wandering around barefoot in the god drat sticky rear end food court and I want to hurl.

Interesting, the Costco Citi Visa is supposed to be accepted in Canadian warehouses. In the U.S. the only Mastercard that works as credit is the Costco Canada card.

I can confirm that Canadian Costco MasterCards work at US Costcos. Not sure about the Costco Visa cards working in Canada but I would think that they should work there.

I mean, if the sauce is almonds and you're putting it on vegetables then I think you're really just extending your lifespan by eating it. You'd be a fool not to eat more.

It was declined as was the first Visa we tried (which worked at all other 20 or so places in Canada) and the Visa debit from our bank. After three cards and holding up close to 40 people for five minutes waiting on a manager, effectively killing the line entirely, we gave up and left the cart there. I was more frustrated at the cashier and front end manager giving us scowls as if we purposely spent an hour shopping solely to leave a cart full of poo poo at the register. I even looked on every door and window on the way out to see if I just missed a big MASTERCARD ONLY sign but nope.

Less than blessed.

melona wasn't on this table (2008) at all. trying to find the table for 2018. wiki claims it was 8th in family mart in 2007

1992년 판매되기 시작한 메로나는 멜론맛이 아닌 참외맛이었다. 1991년 메로나를 개발중에 있던 빙그레는 동남아시아의 시장을 조사하러 갔다가 멜론에 주목하게 되었다. 당시 한국에는 멜론이 희귀한 과일이어서 새로운 맛이라고 판단한 빙그레는 제품 개발에 나섰으나, 소비자에겐 메론이 생소하여 '메론맛'이 낯설 수 밖에 없었다. 이로 인해 빙그레는 1992년, 초록색이면서도 참외맛을 가깝게 낸 메로나를 출시하게 되었다.[3]

In 1992, when they started selling, Melona was not melon-flavored but oriental melon (Korean muskmelon) flavored. In 1991, when the company was developing the flavor, went to Southeast Asia and notice melons being sold in the markets. But this (honeydew melon) was a new flavor to Korea, and as it was unfamiliar it had to be named after the melon. Therefore, they released the melon flavor in green in 1992 (with a similar flavor to oriental melon).

Cool. I wish I could read/understand hangul. I'm glad to see some korean frozen treats get some wider distribution here since they kick rear end. I've also recently tried some frozen Milkis thing I got from Lotte Mart, it was the bomb.

I wish mine had self checkout, but based on my extensive experience with them at QFC, people will start to take their full carts through them as well.

Edit: Costco trip yesterday. Now that we live further away from Costco, the totals are higher. Mattress topper, lots of wine for upcoming family trip, some clothes, and a couple boxes of Rise three ingredient protein bars were the big ones.

We got self checkout at my Costco a few months ago and this is exactly what happens. It ends up being no faster than just going to a regular checkout line. The self checkout lanes don't have nearly enough space to work, so you a ton of people clumsily trying to balance their purchases as they scan while their cart is still half full.
