I have a bad thing about Costco! My cousin's baby had a diaper rash of such tenacity it became common family gossip. And when they finally identified the culprit? Kirkland Signature Baby Wipes.

I don't want to bring the thread down but I also don't want to be responsible for chapped asses.

Wipe the baby with the bun from $1.50 hot dog and drink!

the swedes have two dogs and a drank for two bucks, which technically is a better deal than the based costco but ikea has normal weak dogs compared to costco's mighty 1/4lb dog. ikea's dogs weren't bad but I ate them while they were far too hot because I'm dumb and stupid.

I will give ikea credit, they had a bunch of flavored waters instead of sodas which were actually pretty good, especially since I can't stand poo poo like perrier.

so 150 calories for the Kings Hawaiian bun and 300-ish for the patty once a lot of the the fat has cooked off

40 for cheese, 40 for sauce and we're still missing like 600 calories

Probably closer to 100 for the cheese, and what the hell let's make that the sauce as well. That still puts us at 650, so unless they're giving us 2 for $5 we're not close calorie-wise.

Guys GUYS

I just found out that you can use the Costco Citi Visa card AS YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARD

Flash it on the way in. Use it to pay at checkout. No need for a separate card. It has your photo and your membership number on the back, so it is valid Costco ID.

AS IF THIS CARD COULDN'T GET ANY BETTER

You still need to use your regular card at the pumps though, right? I've get 90% of my gas through Costco so I've been carrying both cards around.

Hi I was told to report to this thread because I'm about to start a job with benefits (but not at Costco). Can someone point me to the correct aisle?

All the aisles are good aisles but it's going to take you a while to see them all you might want to stop by the food court and get you a 1/4lb all beef hot dog and a 20oz drink for just $1.50 (plus tax :shh:). The best part is that you can refill the drink all you want for free!!!

that's not that bad, ours is basically every aisle basket-to-basket overflowing. gotta go like 45min before door closes M-Th or right when they first open (and there will be 40+ people in line already). i was gunna go today but slept in a little to olong so i missed being able to show up 15 minutes before the doors open and didn't feel like playing the thunderdome game today. maybe tomorrow morning

it's a brave/foolish person who goes to Costco on a weekend, tbh. Sucks when I'm craving a dog then but c'est la vie it's like wanting chick-fil-a on a sunday.

The real money time to go to Costco is 8:00p on a friday. Ghost town, can cruise all the aisles and get your .25lb hot dog and 20oz soft drink for $1.50 without any kind of delay.

It was actually a complete distraction. While the one set of guys were going after the fake jewelry, the REAL crew was making off with sacks full of delicious all-beef hot dogs, chicken bakes, and pizzas.

They even smashed and grabbed the onion container

Why didn't the receipt checker do something to stop them? WHY!?!

Because Costco will just make more. There'll always be $1.50 quarter-pound all beef hot dogs and 20oz beverages with unlimited refills for the people.

Bles.

If you're talking about the Kirkland golf balls, they sold out in a flash, since they were probably rebranded (INSERT FANCY DAN GOLF BALL TYPE NAME HERE) for a far cheaper price and haven't come back.

If you're talking about some Callaways or something I saw a while back, if they gone they gone so who knows tbh.

Had to make some stops during the workday and once just so happened to be by a Costco so I was able to nab me a $1.50 hot dog and a drink, though I didn't get a refill. Also had to eat the dog naked since I was eating the dog in the car and was wearing a white shirt today and that's always begging for disaster.

Thankfully that Costco dog is so good you can eat it naked and it's still a great dog

Hell no. I don't go on weekends because I don't want to have to fight like 500 people and especially not on a holiday weekend. I love the 'co and you can't get 1/4lb PLUS dogs and 20oz drinks with free refills for $1.50 in jail.

I will go once the new deals start, if only because I'm almost out of tp and that Cottonelle deal is looking real smoooooooth, to go with my discounted cookies and protein bars and the aforementioned dog/drink.

Costco is wise, PBUC.

I'm just happy for the Brits that Costco maintained a level of decency and standards and didn't boil the 1/4lb dog (with free refill!) in the bun.

The only drawback is that they have a really short shelf life, so you either end up having to throw some out or become a fat gently caress.

Like most Costco bakery products, stick them in the freezer unless you regularly consume 10,000+ calories in a day. Plus heating them up from frozen melts the chocolate and makes them that much better.

I have a tale to tell. You may want to sit down.

Went with my Dad to Costco for some stay at home dad food (I'm a teacher and off for summer) got some fruit, veggies, snacks, rotisserie chicken and 2 things I have never seen mentioned that are the truth. Costco chicken salad (is amazing ) and the whisp (?) crackers that are just baked Parmesan cheese. Crazy haul.

Now comes the hard part. My dad was hungry. As was I. He went to the food court and picked up 2 dogs, 2 drinks ( with refills) and 2 churros. I go to grab toppings, put on some mustard, squirt of catsup.... and there are no onions. Anywhere. Not even the empty container.

Your thoughts and prayers will help us through this difficult time.

You brought it upon yourself for the ketchup. This is punishment for your sins.
