Plus as someone else said it's probably that much including a drink which I didn't have, and you know what anyways? I'd be happy if they overshot the calorie count. Easier to just stop and go "Yeah one slice on a Friday and that's that"

Visa and MasterCard (called MasterCharge back in the day) used to be individual companies and you applied for the cards directly through them. The cards looked the same but the entire Visa or MC logo was the card, no your bank's graphics.

The charm was that Visa was more accepted overseas and more locations other than you local bank's card, or traveler's cheques.

AmEx is just living off the inertia of Boomers and GenXers who remember the "don't leave home without it" commercials.

My local credit union's debit card is a Visa as well. That poo poo is tacked on to everything. All I have to do is let my bank know I'm traveling and that poo poo works just fine.

I got a shitload to do today so maybe I'll swap my cheat today to now instead of tomorrow and go try the burger again sans dressing after working up a proper appetite, sure as hell beats what any other non-restaurant place can offer

he's right for some things and wrong for others. I find costco to be generally more expensive than winco for:

fruit
vegetables
poultry
pork
cheaper cuts of beef

costco is better on:

paper products
dairy
expensive beef
seafood
packaged foods/snacks


Since I eat mostly fresh stuff and prefer poultry/pork to beef I find myself only ever using my gf's costco membership for cheese, milk, and paper products.

Not disagreeing but it's a lot easier for me to go to one place and reap some INSANE savings ++++ a big honking dog and then pay regular prices or even slightly over then to worry about sales and random grocery stores.

I really only go to those two stores and winco is off a major street I drive down everyday. I was just stating that i sometimes feel like the prices in general are overhyped at costco, they do got some great deals and even if I don't even need much I tend to go like once a week and just wander around with the gf but they honestly aren't the cheapest place around for buying everyday groceries.

I agree for the most part. If I'm just getting some basic groceries I'll go somewhere else where I can use those tiny carts. :3: I go to Costco for stuff I really need and need a lot of. I'm single and live alone though so Costco isn't always the best place for me. When I do go though, I get my money's worth. Bulk frozen foods, meals, cheese, anything related to hygiene, etc.

yeah I would say stuff even not on sale in those categories is 10-20% cheaper by pound. Tho costco tends to vary less by season.

Costco essentially provides consistent pricing on bulk sized quantities of product. Some are higher than a general grocery store, and some come in lower. Where Costco shines is the fact that 99% of the items are a known quality, with less mystery brands (store/cheap). Kirkland Signature is considered one of the highest quality store brands, and multiple products have been verified to have been produced by known brand names. Add in the unconditional 100% return policy (minus electronics, but at at 90 days is still better than most retail) and the value is there. Yes you drop $200-400 each trip easily, but at least the stuff you get is quality.

Plus a dog on the way out.

Look, here, calm the hell down, here it is. This is it. It's a pretty sizeable burger. Got the sauce on the side. It was some kind of darker and more granular thousand island. As far as a burger goes it gets a solid A-. Basically a Costco Big Mac. Linked for UNFILTERED SHEER BURG SIZE.

Also I feel like costco expiration dates are always p far out on their packaged stuff which is nice when it comes to dairy in particular.
