So back story: Our store had just opened and we were signing up for accounts on Day 1. I, as a joke, filled out my name as Ticklebuns to make my wife laugh. She did not. But the manager of the this particular Costco thought it was hilarious and granted me the name Ticklebuns on my card. So now, I get asked every time I go through check out. Worth it.

Also went to Costco today. Cashed in my rewards check and returned $70 of baby formula I bought 8 months ago and never used.

...Then I gave it all right back. The produce was on point today though.

We know what happens to people who stay in the middle of the road. They get run over.

Disaster during this visit. Most cards stopped going through. People are getting rung up and then told to use the single atm to get cash. Lines stretching full length of the store.

Edit: 14 people waiting at the atm. Not going to be pretty if it runs out of cash

Saw the same thing at a non-Costco grocery store just now. Credit card transactions were randomly getting declined and lines were getting silly.

Looks to be a wider debit/credit processing outage, a bunch of large retailers are impacted.

Costco Japan is also facing shortages:



I love the wording with this. You guys are panicking morons and there's no problem with supply in this country, but you won't listen anyway so this poo poo is unnecessarily sold out and we have to implement limits. Also, the hell with our sales, you suckers will pay full price for them anyway so we're cancelling them!

I stopped by Costco last night to pick up a bunch of "just in case" non-perishable staples last night as well as a bunch of canisters of formula for my kiddo.

Right when I got in line is when the credit/debit system took a poo poo, and no one was interested in paying by cash/check (aside from a few olds who still carry checkbooks), so I just took out some cash at the ATM and booked it out of there. Had to be ~60 people in line, at 8pm on a Monday night, who may not have been able to complete their purchases. Poor saps.

Sounds like it was more than just Costco. I arrived at Trader Joe's just after the card machines started working again. Then was told the same thing by the Costco checkers.

Man, I signed up myself for costco membership and in the big nickname box I put "Flash, savior of the universe" and for my nickname they just gave me "Flash" but my buddy who is black and asked for a Chapelle show character, he doesn't get the first five letters of his nickname, instead they left it blank!

Character in question. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYnTfZ_mE5k

We went to Costco yesterday evening for our usual stocking up trip (Clackamas OR location) and it was busy, but not insane. TP and cleaning wipes were sold out. Thankfully we still have plenty at home.

I brought my own wipes for the cart and then my toddler stuck the seatbelt buckle in his mouth so, :rip: us.
