Does it have good deals relative to the Hawaii prices?

Hawaii has crazy high prices for everything, so Costco comes in with the normal prices which makes it a hell of a deal. Every single one I've been to on the islands is packed, and the gas stations are the busiest I've seen in the world.

Fear not my friend, for we have all paid our tithes.


We got a coupon book from Costco the other day, and my boyfriend seems very interested in the bidet toilet seat they had on the first page.

Do it. Itís worth it.

The money you save in TP is worth it alone.

Exactly the same as Iceland, iirc

The other shops are basically extractive but Costco is ok with only making money on the memberships so the normal prices it is

Half and half can be directly substituted for whole/2% milk in any recipe and it tastes way better imo

Itís even better in cereal

Also, instead of mixing milks and creams of various fat contents, you can make ice cream base with straight half and half, this gives a fat percentage about half way between regular ice cream and Hagen Daz.

Cheese curds shouldnít be refrigerated. It makes the oil leave and makes them stop squeaking.

They have to be refrigerated if you want to keep them like most cheeses so they don't mold.

Take them out of the fridge 30-60 minutes before you eat them.

I buy cheese curds maybe once a week or so.

Costco can be a good place to buy tires outright, just don't have them installed there. It's like a giant version of the sample issue, a poo poo ton of assholes all swarming around and a bunch of wasted time.

Batteries though hell yeah Costco everytime, mostly, again, for the fact you can do the swap in the lot. If tires were that easy people would do that too.

This is from several pages ago, but I recently bought an Interstate deep cell marine battery from Costco. It cost significantly less than I had budgeted for and it works like a champ.

Fair enough, I've just never found myself needing to store cheese curds for any appreciable length of time?

In NY they charge you a deposit on your old battery when you buy a new one. Gotta return the old one to be recycled to be thrown in a landfill.

I mean, maybe that's a NY-wide law or something but that's just a core charge and it's wildly common for the majority of rebuildable automotive parts.

We have that in MI too. I bet most places do but a lot of people don't know/realize they are getting charged it.

I bought the 55" at Thanksgiving when it was on sale, and it is fantastic. I'm not a huge fan of the Roku interface, but it works well enough. The speakers were garbage, but that's true of pretty much every TV; I hooked it up to my sound system anyway.

I had to return our 2017 55Ē TCL because the screen stopped working (audio was fine). Costco of course swapped it out even though it was slightly past the 90 days. The replacement has been working fine.

If you buy a TV with the Costco credit card don't you get like 2 years extended warranty or something?

Yes, paying with the Costco Visa gives you an extra 2 years on the warranty. I believe it comes with 2 years no matter what, and then you can pay for 3 more years with Square Trade (price varies depending on the price of the TV), so it's possible to get a TV from Costco with a 7 year warranty.

TCL is a pretty good value, but its worth mentioning that Costco only carries the 4-series and 5-series rather than the more highly regarded (and pricier) 6 series.

There's a TV thread that might be helpful:
