They have the Men's Spyder 1/4 zip and full zip fleece things on sale. They seem to be very warm and I bought one of each.

I have one of these that is kind of tight with one of those collars that doesn't fold down (and not fleece) and it's probably my favorite sweater.

Made a Costco run. It's been a few months I think. I grabbed some energy drinks, Oral B brush heads since they were on sale (gently caress those are expensive), a lint roller with 5 rolls that will last me forever, broccoli cheddar soup, Irish beef stew, and then I saw some clothes of course. I got some Eddie Bauer pajama bottoms and a hoodie, and I saw that fleece lined Spyder sweatshirt so I grabbed that too.

Also I grabbed the meatloaf because another goon upthread just mentioned that I should. :shrug:

We're supposed to be getting snow this afternoon/evening in the Southeast so I thought I'd see what my local Co looked like this morning, and it was great! Probably half the number of people I usually see there. Ended up getting a 2 pack of canola oil, the 2 pack of canola oil spray, and a box of Systane eye drops (which my wife goes through about 1 per month). No line at the self checkout either. All in all, a good visit to Church.

We always got a lot of nasty expressions parking in handicap spots when my wife was dealing with kidney failure and couldn't walk for long without having to take a break. People are rotten, especially in Costco parking lots.

I have a box of envelopes I bought at Costco probably 18 years ago now.

It still looks completely full.

When I first got my costco membership in 2013 I bought one of those 200 count boxes of garbage bags. I was a single guy, lived in an apartment, was big on recycling/reducing waste. I moved out of that same apartment in spring of 2021 to move in with my fiancée and in some sort of weird poetic coincidence, I used the last bag of that box to take out the last bag of trash before turning in the key.

Looks like on their website https://www.spyder.com/ that they made the US Olympic Ski Team's clothing.

edit: jesus gently caress, I looked up their sweaters and some of them are going for $200. I just got one yesterday for like $30. (PBUC)

They still make some really good ski gear but they also branched out into selling dads outdoor style clothing. Most of it is totally unremarkable besides the giant Spyder logo but a few of their items are.. uhh.. real hideous

Highly dependent on location in terms of staff/service. Deals are okay, but nothing crazy good. Definitely worth checking out a local Discount Tire, etc. and comparison shopping.

Seems to be on average $5-10 cheaper per tire at Costco. Outside of sales, 5 year road hazard included seems to be the big bonus. I guess nitrogen fill as well, if you believe in that sort of thing.

They don't appear to let you buy tires outside of OEM sizing for your vehicle?

Exactly. I'm sure its decent enough as they are at Costco after all, and as a ~brand~ you have to make yourself stand out somehow. I have a minor issue with the name because it reeks of highschool-me making up character names for Shadowrun characters.

Super dependent on location. They can be very restrictive on both what vehicles they will install tires on (have to be in their system) and what they will do about sizing. Mine is cool and installs tires on loose wheels all the time for me. Plus the executive membership plus now the Citi card means I can build up quite a bit of a Costco return buying things I was going to buy anyway. Specifically tires and batteries. BUT your location might be awful, some are. Mine happens to be good.



Pictured: full set of 5 Costco-bought and installed (loosely, they won't take in a JDM vehicle into the install bays) tires, and also two batteries under the hood you can't see.

Costco tire used to have an issue where they wouldnít put on new TPMS packs if you did your purchase over the internet. You know because $2 per tire on your $1000 purchase would have been beyond the pale

Just make sure you clarify at the counter that you will pay for TPMS if needed, not sure if itís a big deal anymore or if you can do it as part of your internet transaction.

FYI, Kaker has probably bought more tires at Costco than the rest of the thread combined, so take that advice as solid.

But agreed, overall their deals are good-but-not-great. Costco beats Discount only if you have the Costco Visa, the executive membership, and the tires are on some form of promotion ($150 off a set of 4, etc). Otherwise Discount usually comes out ahead, especially if you have their store card which usually has some form of rebate attached to it. I also drive by three Discounts on the way to Costco (for now) so that plays into it a bit.

Costco's battery pricing is unmatched anywhere else that I've seen, though. Their computer system is a bit dumb for batteries too. It says they don't have the battery for my Canyon (or seemingly anything else using an H8 AGM) but they had half a dozen of them sitting on the shelf when I walked in.

The real benefit on the batteries is the warranty service. You walk in with a battery you say is dead, they swap it. Every other place I've bought batteries from over the years wants to spend anywhere from ten minutes to a loving hour testing them first. One time they even looked up the battery I'd bought when I was still using my mom's membership and transferred it over to my own before exchanging it out. The only downside to Costco batteries is that if you're worried about needing a warranty exchange on the road, there are a lot fewer Costcos than there are Walmarts/Autozones/Oreilly.
