Looks like the Seattle area Costcos have figured out what level of toilet paper to have out.



They're trying to shock and awe the panic buyers.

I almost never get gas at Costco. It's like ten percent off, so a few dollars off in exchange for sitting in line for like five minutes.

If your CostCo (or any store, really) is requiring masks then it is legitimately the safest shopping option out there.

I thought I read that Costco corporate said they wouldn't require masks anymore for liability reasons? I Instacart everything now so I haven't seen firsthand.

I almost forgot when I walked into the Costco a couple was wheeling out a chest freezer. It was a smaller one, like 7cuft I think?

That's a good idea, when I buy cold stuff I just rush home and unpack it ASAP.

Pre-pandemic I was usually wrestling two kids so everything is unloaded from the cart before I even noticed.

I buy small jars of pesto and end up throwing half of it away. I guess I need to eat more pesto.

How are the vacuum cleaners at Costco?

For what a good one costs I'm not really willing to order online; I need a storefront I could return it to if it's not up to spec.

I didn't buy from Costco but I will say I love my Miele and I think bagless vacuums are crap.

I bought that $300 HP last year and it sucked rear end. It broke, and I had to buy an extended warranty to get priority so it didn't take 6 weeks to get it back from repair. Then the screen broke a few months later for no reason. Never buy HP, and if you do don't buy a warranty because you're just better off tossing it in the trash and buying another.

Self check-out is for two situations: you have a few items, or you have small children.

I think if you've ever shopped at Lowes/Home Depot, you know how rare it is for even a single employee to offer assistance.

Thank you for this life hack.

I want costco to just slap rfid labels on everything so I just walk through some arch that scans everything and irradiates me with EMF and charges my card automatically so I don’t have to unload my cart or interact with another human, is that too much to ask?!?

Didn't the Amazon stores do this? How did that work out?

You need to get the Costco credit card. Save yourself even more time because it is also your Membership card and you don't have to insert it to pay, just tap it to the top of the CC machine while they are still scanning your items. The receipt usually prints before they can tell you the total you already paid...

Also the gas pumps now have tap to pay so you save time there too. Tap and it does both the membership and pay part all at once.

I now go to my local CO for gas Friday Morning on my way into work. Never have to wait in line and it takes me 5 minutes to get my gas. Good for the weekend, usually.

I have nothing against tap to pay, but if you don't have time in your life to take a card out of your wallet you are going to have a heart attack in your forties.

That's only covered under warranty if you bought it with the Costco card.

Asking this will just prompt people to repeat Costco's company line "we are helping you not forget merch or you being double charged"

I can confirm based on a checking lady who mumbled everything she checked out loud.
