Gonna go to the 'Tco to get big rear end seasoning jars that my colonial :newzealand: wife can't ignore.

We are a Costco household now can't be having bland tacos.

"With AmEx, Costco was paying about 0.6% per transaction, Bloomberg reported. Now, itís paying less than 0.4%, according to the article. Thatís much lower than the 2% to 3% fees many stores pay." - some dumb website

Costco pays basically nothing by going with Visa, and those savings are passed down to me. Praise be to Costco.

Credit fees are a huge cost for a business. Making an extra 2% on each transaction means that 1.50 1/4 lb all beef hot dogs can continue to be cheap and wonderful.
And who leaves credit cards at home? Don't you own a wallet?

I can't say anything about the khakis but the clothes at costco are generally pretty nice and durable and comfy and cheap. I have a lot of sweaters and hoodies and poo poo from there, also the kirkland boxer briefs really are nice

Do they carry local beers in every city? Costco is rad for parties (I am an attractive and popular guy with loads of friends)

Also is it a recent thing because back in eahhhh 2013 our Costco didn't take visa, and only took MC or Amex. Crazy if it's flipped between the two major processors

You should throw it in the ocean.

I had 17-or-so (not pairs) random short socks. Decided to toss them and got 60 pairs of identical socks from Costco. Now if I lose one it doesn't matter as they all match, and I don't need to think about socks for the better part of a decade. Got a 1/4 pound PLUS polish with 20 oz drink with free refill on the way out, didn't bring my cart in the food line, got sauerkraut from the lady, added poo poo loads of onion, deli mustard and relish. Also told a guy about the sauerkraut and he went back to the counter to get some to add to his dog. Am I doing this right?

Yup, they're the only cold beers in the place. Pretty neat seeing the little microbrewery a relative helped found being sold at Costco.

Why didn't you just use your Mastercard in the ATM that is by the door in most Costcos. Pretty sure cash would've worked at the register. Or, like, take the more accepted card with you.

Hell no. I don't go on weekends because I don't want to have to fight like 500 people and especially not on a holiday weekend. I love the 'co and you can't get 1/4lb PLUS dogs and 20oz drinks with free refills for $1.50 in jail.

I will go once the new deals start, if only because I'm almost out of tp and that Cottonelle deal is looking real smoooooooth, to go with my discounted cookies and protein bars and the aforementioned dog/drink.
