I bought an air conditioner from Costco like 3 years ago, last summer it broke cause I dropped it putting it in the window. I took it back to Costco hoping they could repair it or something since I had long since lost the owners manual. they refused to repair it and instead offered me a full refund for a broken 3 year old air conditioner, their return policy is loving crazy.

there's two Costco's near me, one is smaller and is where every Asian in the whole entire world shops and is less a store and more a Fury Road-esque warzone.

the other is a little further out in the burbs but is bigger and 10x more chill because most people out here balk at having to drive all of 15 minutes.

I haven't bought a second box of loving trash bags in many years, I don't know how many bags are in this loving thing but it's too huge roles and it's not even close to running out. Two big rear end rolls and they appear to break the laws of physics or are literally Jesus.

Also I got the Costco Visa, that's right fucks, THAT Visa. Get it if you haven't, seriously. I get paid, pay off the balance, and use it for every single spending I can except the mortgage. Bills, groceries, gas, parking at school, collecting the cash from friends at a restaurant and paying on my card. All cash back! Paid for a cruise, broke up with the girl so I cancelled it, got a refund, and still earned cash back on the original payment. Over $400 earned at it's not even close to being a year in my wallet.

I have the visa and can confirm it's good as hell

Costco's stuff won't necessarily be the cheapest but it will usually be the best at that price point. I've had very few Costco duds.

I gladly pay a lil extra at Costco to get that sick return policy. like I posted earlier I broke my Costco air conditioner by being a stupid idiot and even though it was 3 years old and I broke it they took it back in exchange for $300 cash money that I definitely did not spend entirely on hot dogs.

My boss's nephew is married to the heiress of the Kirkland brand. I met her once, and she's really chill and down to earth. The nephew that she married is a completely useless manchild, though.

I recall a couple of stories where they both went on shopping sprees that totaled an average of 13000 USD. This happened constantly. Apparently, the nephew had a really expensive Lincoln Navigator that was desstroyed during the 9/11 attacks.

Last I heard, she/they were part of Mariah Carey's entourage and they were trying to find Mariah a bottle of painkillers.

All in all, it really gives an odd perspective to being a poor goon and eating greasy pizza by the slice at Costco.

I used to bang the Winco heiress back in college, which was cool for awhile. she used to casually buy me expensive poo poo like laptops and bikes.

but fear not, for now my only true love is a big ol dog and 20oz soda for a buck goddamn fiddy.

So one of my local costcos has poke salad and/or straight up sashimi in their refrigerated prepared foods. Anyone have experience before i drop 15 bucks on lovely tasting fish? (Obviously​ getting a dog and a combo slice either way)

I had costco poke at a party and it was good. Better than most grocery store poke but not as good as something you'd get from a restaurant or specialty truck.

just got back from Costco, got a few essentials, some high quality local cheese (3yr aged white cheddar from coastal pastures), also stoked cause the good as hell Kirkland chicken broth now comes in 6 packs instead of 4 packs.

my final purchase was 3 (!) fuckin enormous heritage tomato plants. 3 different varieties including brandywine (!!), gonna see what does best in my limited sunlight. each one is nearly 2 feet tall and the entire 3 pack was only $9 drat dollars.

also you know I treated the wife to fine dining in the food court cause I am a gentleman

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

I've been slowly losing weight by cutting carbs, sticking to an Atkins-style diet, and starting to exercise for the first time in my life, so as tempting as the $1.50 dog 'n' soda combo was, I abstained. But I bought a bunch of new mustards and a new jar of sauerkraut yesterday, and dogs have been sounding good, so for the first time ever, I bought the pack of Kirkland quarter-pound beef franks, the same ones they serve in the store. I ended up with 14 big-rear end dogs for $10, and already portioned them out in freezer bags, with some ready to cook when I get home tomorrow. They won't be quite the same without buns, but the drat fine quality of the dogs and exciting new mustards will make up for it.

I had a roommate who was no carb and the Costco Dog Slingers would happily serve him up a bunless polish dog with kraut and mustard.

I made a discovery today friends! Kirkland individually sealed frozen chicken breasts. This is gonna take my no flavor sous vide chicken to the next level! Praise be!

I have been buying a big bag of those chicken titties once a month, every month, for the last 5ish years. super easy to store and they make great meals every time. sometimes I pound em flat and fry a few up for breakfast, sometimes I dice em and add that Costco pesto, toss with pasta and you got yourself a piss easy dinner that makes plenty of leftovers.

now that I'm thinking about it I've never gotten anything from Costco freezers that didn't turn out good.

what, you're just going to tease us with this story and not give any deets?

it's not a long story, I was in line to return a bookcase when the woman at the front of the line just blew up. she was shouting and screaming at the Costco lady behind the counter about how they had to take the return, you can't terminate my account, I'll sue you, etc. The receipt checker (a fat old guy) ran over saying that he was calling the cops to make her leave. she stormed out screaming and cussing at everyone.

looking back the funniest part is how all the customers couldn't have given less of a poo poo. people didn't even move out of their place in receipt check line.
