tfw you're peeing next to someone in the lineup and they don't know

Yeah a lot of beer at Costco is super local (and actually getting more local in my experience). I live in central CA so we get ballast point, Stone, etc.

That particular Ballast Point 3 pack deal was a Christmas thing (one regular ballast, one coconut ballast, one peppermint ballast) for 3.57. The seasonal clearances are always the best.

In any case I highly suggest checking the alcohol when you cruz through Costco regardless of where you are. You would be really surprised what you can find.

It's clearance if the price ends in a 7.

Yeah they've been totally killing it on the 6 packs lately.

e: The one exception is IPAs. Costco's distro usually isn't good enough to get IPA to market in a reasonable time frame (which, coincidentally, is why a lot of the USA finds IPA to be garbage, but that's another discussion).

10-15% of stock is based on the wealth of the area and store manager discretion. Leave feedback at your local Costco, maybe things will change.

I usually go once a week to check the clearances, it's like a scavenger hunt where you randomly get half price scotch or, like... goldenberries.

Or one time, 3 packs of Victory at Sea bombers for $3.57.

You never know.

Are the .97 price codes still real? I didn’t see any .97 stuff anywhere at my costco last i looked. I saw a few asterisks which i think mean “not getting restocked” though

Wait so is the italian sausage not just another option for the 1.50 dog? Sorta like my Costco has it so you can either get a Brat or a Dog for 1.50.

The 1.50 brat is not available in Mass AFAIK, we get the 1.50 dog and the Italian Sausage Sandwich with peppas-n-onions for 2.79. Haven't had in years but is good.

I had the brat when I was in Michigan on a road trip, a good alternative to the dog IMO.

What? Every Costco I've been to in Mass has both the $1.50 Dog and Soda, and the Italian sausage sandwich.

My bad, original post edited. In MA we most definitely get the 1/4 lb all beef hot dog and drink (with refill) for 1.50.

Sure, but markdowns are at managers descretion. If they are managing their inventory well they'll have little to no markdowns.

Any price that ends in a 7 (usually .97 or .67) is a corporate markdown, so most if not all stores will have that price. Prices that end in .00 are store specific markdowns, and they usually only do that with items that are the last ones or if the packaging is damaged, pretty much anything they're trying to get rid of.

Holy poo poo big shoutout to those recommending the optical department.

I paid $190 total for new frames and 45 days worth of contact lenses. (Probably will buy lenses elsewhere after since Costco doesn't take my insurance) but even the frames alone were beyond worth it without using my benefits.

The optimal department was much better before 2009 when all you had was hot garbage Luxottica-monopoly poo poo selling overpriced $300 glasses that suck, and Costco would offer really nice poo poo for $150. but you can buy just as good online glasses at like zennioptical or optical4less for like <$50.

I still highly recommend going to Costco for the eye exam and taking the prescription online, my eye doc there is really good and cool, and its like $45 for an eye exam

Outside of local/regional beer I rarely see anything worth buying. Every now and then they'll have a sampler pack from Stone or Goose Island and in early summer I've seen 50/50 30 packs of Modelo Especial & Negra.

Your authority is not recognized in Fort Kickass.


They had a 24 case of Lagunitas Brown Shugga for $29? I think. Those are like 9.4%, probably best bang for buck.

Around here, if you're comparing to other stores, Pacificos are only like $2 a case less at $22. 805 is like $24 or $25 for a 24 pack, which is immensely cheaper. Those go for like $17 for a 12 pack at Ralph's.

Pornhub. XTube. I know these names, better than I know my own grandmothers.

Our go to cheap Costco beer is the Coors light cooler, 36 pack that comes in a soft cooler so it's like a double purchase. Life changing.

Local Costco usually carries a ton of great local stuff like Middle Ages, Saranac, Brooklyn and Southern Tier. Although lately it's just been higher end macros like blue point and Stella which is fine but kinda disappointing compared to what I've seen in the past.

Although they do carry those super cheap Warsteiner and Modelo packs seasonally and those are great.
