My faith wavered this week as my warehouse had neither bacon nor the yogurt the kids like in stock, but the visage of Sgt. Chowdown with his dog of unknown weight and beverage without a refill was surely sent as a sign to keep my faith strong. PBUC

Yea, bretheren, my faith is strong, and I gave a mighty tithe at the local church today, but the father, in his wisdom, seems to have abandoned Yoplait yogurt for multiple varieties of fashionable Greek yogurt. Are other churches following? Does the church now solely favor the Greek Yogurt Orthodoxy?

The design is obviously so they can stack em more efficiently in their shipping trucks.
It's more rectangular/cylindrical and less jug- like shape fits more efficiently in my fridge, so suck it, I like it.

Those of you who have used optical: I get $x towards contacts with my vision insurance (which the doctor at my Costco doesn't take). Will Costco optical deal with insurance for me if I buy contacts through them, or do I have to deal with reimbursement myself?

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.

$120 for glasses here. Ordered at 4pm Saturday. Got the text that they are ready this evening. PBUC

My state controls alcohol prices and only sells liquor in state stores, so all the Costco beer selections here are poo poo. Also, no handles of high quality $20 scotch for me.

Not to blaspheme, but I'm thinkin' bout the veggie burgers and chicken tenders that suddenly were ghosted from the frozen section when I went on Friday.

I am struggling with the faith today. Went yesterday and they were out of/no longer carry several long-standing favorites, the optical area basically threw up their hands at my unusable glasses (way distorted vision and seeing text double at close range. The optician says the prescription is fine and to take it up with my optician), and despite checking out on it the app never actually sent the 100 photos I wanted printed. Between that and the sweaty hoardes that were somehow there at 2:00 on a Thursday, I'm wondering if it's all worth it.

And like Eat Faster, I've become mostly veg so communion is useless to me.

Save my soul, goons.

I know the thread generally is pro the extended warranty on electronics, but is it worth it for appliances?

I'm getting a washer/dryer combo and the warranty is about 8% of the total price to cover years 3-5. That doesn't seem like a time when things go wrong with them (bathtub graph for failures/problems and all).

Still worth it?

Edit: Wait, using the costco visa to purchase, so that gives me 4 years before the squaretrade kicks in, right? Maybe it's worth it to be covered in years 5-7.

No, no. I live in a state with state liquor stores. I get none of the glorious booze. Just making a general statement.

Edit: we also have state prices on beer and wine, making the co kind of useless for alcohol.

My church has a line 1/3 to the back of the store. My faith is weak because I hosed up and went at 1130 on Saturday.

Back before I had kids and had time to obsess about food, I would fire up my charcoal chimney as a jet engine then put the pan on top of it when it was at full roar to heat the poo poo out of a wok or cast iron pan, and could sear the bejesus out of a steak super quickly. I highly recommend it.

And also, just as a way to start your charcoal. You never run out of chimney, unlike lighter fluid.

Went to the pharmacy to get my refill of meds-cheaper with Costco prices and the GoodRX coupon (which they apply automatically) than with my poo poo insurance.
Do you, or does anyone, know if they play the standard gently caress gently caress games with insurance, or will things just be cheaper there? Have a family member just diagnosed with diabetes and is looking at some painful expenses for supplies and insulin. Don't have a ton of experience with pharmacies other than the occasional painkiller and antibiotic, but from what I have seen prices appear to be largely made up when insurance is involved, I'm wondering if their retail prices are cheaper if their prices with insurance will also be cheaper.

costco's one fault is the number of products that produce a lot more waste than their sams counterpart. like applesauce, costco only has individual pouches, while sam's sells big containers. also sams sells fruit in big and little recyclable cans, while costco only has a box of individual plastic fruit cups.
This very much bugs me about costco. A lot of stuff, especially food, feels more like "six regular consumer units put in a big outer box" than "a large foodservice package" if that makes sense.
