You eat the dog before you shop. Get right with Costco, PBUC.

Wait, you can go eat the dog before shopping? Do you just walk in the out door or through an empty register or?

I feel like someone just told me I've been brushing my teeth backwards or something, gently caress.

You could call ahead and check. Bonus is that it'll be done at whatever time you specify.

Most definitely.

Meydey posted:

Its not advertised but I have asked at 3 different warehouses and no issues. The combo pizza has sausage so just have them put that on the pep. Might work with veggies also, but thats not how I roll with pizza.
They might balk if its real busy, just ask nice.

Yeah I wouldn't argue over it, great to know though.

Gas tank nearly E, getting that dog this afternoon. Maybe some shirts too.

Status report: The Co still great, people who don't put their cart in the corral should be fired into the sun. You get gas, a dog, a full cart of deals but can't put your cart back 25 feet away? Think of the good cart wranglers. :(

Never thought to look for those. How big of bulk though? When I buy them at Meijer it is $8 for 2 beans in a little cigar tube. I don't think I want to know what a jar of 1,000 would cost me.

I went for a Costco run today not knowing you need a membership, and I'm too poor to afford it :(

I'm very sad, but at least the greeter stopped me before I started picking things out.

Before anyone asks the obvious question: yes it was my first time

Give it time and save for it if you can. Depending on what and how much you drive the gas savings alone might recoup the value of the membership over a year, making renewal hopefully easier.

Hang in there friend, only a few more hours until the 23rd. I assume their site will show upcoming deals then.

I'm hoping the 'Co will have some deals on kitchenware and bath sets myself.

Went to a different Costco today and got another queen and king Sherpa (we have three total now). Also got a new shark vacuum 30$ off, a new outdoor LED porch light for 8$ and a bunch of laundry detergent. This Costco had chili at the food court so I got that and a dog and made a chili dog. Costco is always coming up with new ways to surprise me. PBUC.

Let me know how that shark vacuum is, i'm in the market for a new vacuum and that looks pretty nice.

I went to Costco on the weekend before Thanksgiving

Parking lot is full

I also went. Though the lot was full, I made the choice to go for the food court first, at 10 am, with no line.

Stopped by Costco today and it was bananas (B-A-N-A-N-A-S). Thirty minutes before opening there was a line up out into the parking lot. As soon as they opened, I scooted over to the food counter. I had skipped breakfast, I’ve been fighting a nasty chest cold all week, and they had all of the dressings, so I decided to go for the ultra rare double dog today. The energy from those dogs helped me get through the crowds, get everything I needed, and drive home through stupid traffic just in time to put my groceries away and collapse with exhaustion. PBUC

EDIT: Also, apparently my city is colder than the Antarctic and Mars today.

Same at the one I visited. My guess is folks stocking up for New Year's Eve parties, the place was packed.

I wish my funeral to be at Costco. Mourners will roll my casket through the store and throw free samples into it. Finally, it will stop at the food court for one last $1.50 dog before hauling my dead rear end to the cemetery.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZmxZThb084

My very dear Costco: The indications are very strong that I shall try to eat 3 Dogs again — perhaps tomorrow. Lest I should not be able to write again, I feel impelled to write a few lines that may fall under your eye when I shall be no more …

I have no misgivings about, or lack of confidence in the cause in which I am engaged, and my courage does not halt or falter. I know how strongly the Executive Membership now leans on the triumph of the free refill and how great a debt we owe to those who went before us through the blood and sufferings of "Sam's Club". And I am willing — perfectly willing — to lay down all my joys in this life, to buy 3 Dogs and eat them, and to pay that debt …

Costco my love for you is deathless, it seems to bind me with mighty cables that nothing but Omnipotence could break; and yet my love of deals comes over me like a strong wind and bears me unresistibly on with all these chains to the food court.

The memories of the blissful moments I have spent with you come creeping over me, and I feel most gratified to God and to you that I have enjoyed them for so long. And hard it is for me to give them up and burn to ashes the hopes of future years, when, God willing, we might still have lived and loved together, and seen our sons grown up to Executive Membership, around us. I have, I know, but few and small claims upon Divine Providence, but something whispers to me — perhaps it is the wafted prayer of PBUC, that I shall return to my loved ones unharmed. If I do not my dear Costco, never forget how much I love you, and when my last breath escapes me in the food court, it will whisper your name. Forgive my many faults and the many pains I have caused you. How thoughtless and foolish I have often times been! How gladly would I wash out with my tears every little spot upon your happiness …

But, O Costco! If the dead can come back to this earth and flit unseen around those they loved, I shall always be near you; in the busiest days and in the quietest nights … always, always, and if there be a soft breeze upon your doors, it shall be my breath, as the cool air fans your take and bake pizzas, it shall be my spirit passing by. Costco do not mourn me dead; think I am gone and wait for thee, for we shall meet again …

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?

I recently went there for glasses and they took my insurance info, but the glasses were too low in price to be covered. No idea about contacts but I imagine they'd at least give it a shot.
