Is this like a driving from Utah to Wyoming thing to buy decent % beers?

My church sells all the hottest liquors so I donít need to traverse states for it.

It's a driving from a state with higher taxes to bulk purchase booze thing. With that haul it's a significant savings.

My grandparents used to do that. They'd drive their RV to visit family, load it up with booze, and then have the kids sit on top of it while driving 4 states back.

PBUC, finally found the Hatch Chiles. Also in stock are the Costco 500 piece puzzle, the Costco dog toys, and Sherpa throws. Truly the best of days.

They just opened up a new Costco 10 min away. I swear they bring in ringer checkout people.

Your assumption is correct! Most retail stores, when they open a new location, send "A-team" people from other stores to help open and train new people for a week or two.

Someone else in this thread said their local store isn't getting any this year.

Yeah, for a bunch of reasons, there's a shortage of real Christmas trees in general depending on where you are in the country.

I live in the part where it's too hot to grow trees locally and also has been in a drought for the last 10+ years.

Visited church for various Christmas things and impulse bought a big power pad to drop by the TV to let people charge their phones. On the way out I was handed a leaflet about holiday deals including a discount on that power pad. That starts on December 10th.

Save your receipt and you can get the difference refunded up to 30 days from your purchase. I just did this a few weeks ago when something went on sale exactly 30 days after I bought it.

You don't have to save your receipt. They will look it up on your account.

If it was an online purchase you can even submit the price difference via a special page on the website. Or go in person and they can see those too.

This works for both returns and price refunds.

My MIL just mentioned this, I saw all the tags when I was there so I just assumed the paper was nearby somewhere too. Crazy.

She tried Costco.com and got them for $40 including shipping and some return labels as well.

We bought the "Sharper Image Power Percussion Deep Tissue Massager" on sale for $65 in store and it is niiiiice. Good gift for the holidays.

Also the "Cuisinart Immersion Hand Blender" was on sale for under $30 which felt like a steal. Comes with a pseudo food processor accessory too.

Just went through this for something and if you're looking for a price adjustment they do require the original receipt. For returns the digital one is fine, so I wound up returning it and just buying it again right after.

Are the breakfast burritos with green chiles they always have any good? Are they super chile forward? I like my breakfast burritos to be more breakfast than burrito but a little chile sounds fine.
