Have you guys tried the chicken street taco kit that seems to be available in some places? Going to Costco tomorrow and think I might pick some up.

Costco let me down. I buy my fully loaded cart of stuff. Wait as the door person checks my receipt and my stuff. She informs me that I bought two of an item but the cashier only charged me for one.

She looks at me like I'm trying to steal. I reply "ok, what do I do now?" I have to drive my cart all the way back, and they ring me up at an un-used register, while everyone is staring at me.

Look at this guy trying to steal from Costco!!!

Then I get to wait in line again for the receipt person to check my poo poo.


Costco, you've let me down.

Should have just chucked the un-paid-for item at the receipt monkey and high tailed it out if there.

My Costco only seems to carry my brand of cat litter half the time I go. The Kirkland brand is there every time, but the other brand is there one week, gone the next, then returns a week or two later.

The San Pellegrino I got at Costco wasn't bubbly at all. Do they make non-sparkling water or did I get a hosed up batch? It still tasted fine and 4 months later I haven't died (as far as I know) so I'm not too salty about it I guess.

I kinda hope it never shows up at mine, because there is no way it lives up to the goon hype.

Also, apparently I'm a Costco regular now. Last two times I've gone the card checker has waved me past without checking my card because they recognized me.

Do they actually really check people's cards where you're at? Every Costco I've ever been to people just hold their cards in view while they walk in.

I have an executive membership for work and use the Costco CC for most work related things, but that account is also linked to my personal Costco CC so I get my personal cashback in February and also my executive cashback check thingy when the renewal hits in October. I have no idea why they let us have multiple credit cards linked to the same Costco membership, but it's awesome.

I love self checkout at my costco. Nobody else ever uses it so I can just get in there, let them ring in my larger items, toss my smaller poo poo on the poo poo shelf, check out and go. It's awesome and way better than waiting for 10min for a normal checker.

To help contextualize a bit, I live about three minutes away from one, so that part is not very difficult.

Also I am a very frustrated customer, in that even if I go to buy something and it turns out the price has since increased, I'll just turn around and leave. Also if the line is too long, I'll go put my stuff back and leave.

Ftfy. Why do you think they give a poo poo if you turn around and leave and/or restock items for them?

I went to Costco yesterday to get some jumbo/large roll TP and paper towels for my business and even those were completely sold out. Was kind of frustrating but I waited in line anyway in order to cash in my rewards certificate finally.

My wife went to Winco around 8am this morning and they were pretty much cleaned out of most staples. We supplement our dog's meals with canned green beans and those were completely gone, so I'm going to try elsewhere this afternoon. She said that some other customer mentioned they wished they had gotten there earlier and an employee told them it had been insanely busy literally all night long.

Pretty empty at my normal Costco so that was nice. Was hoping to get some of the large roll paper towels for out dispensers at work but out of the 3 varieties of dispenser towels they carry they were only sold out of the one I use. So that sucked. Got some Kirkland sparkling water and a book of stamps though so I guess it was a successful trip.

Had to go to church last weekend to scope out the chicken situation. There was some. It's roughly 2x more expensive than usual in the regular non-frozen section. Used to be 6 packs per unit for roughly $20, now it's 3 packs for a little under $20.

In happier news it turns out my stco has Bitchin Sauce. Got the chipotle kind and it's pretty drat good! Had been looking for something for my trisquits since I'm getting a little burnt out on eating them with baby bell snack gouda and this stuff will do nicely.

Got some Bitchin sauce (available in at least 2 Portland area Costcos now!) but the product wouldn't scan, so they sent a runner to get info from the shelf it was on, that didn't work either, so they called in a manager to look it up in a separate computer adjacent to the food court. I was the rear end in a top hat holding up the line today. Felt kinda bad for the super old asian lady behind me who looked to be struggling a bit, but I got my Bitchin Sauce. Also a big rear end box of Trisquits to deliver the Bitchin sauce to my face.

Cornish Hens are great in our air fryer. But honestly my favorite use is just chucking a bunch of veggies, shrimp, and seasoning for a faux cajun bowl. It's fast, easy, and clean up is simpler than trying to open palm slam some shrimp and corn into a toaster oven.

What happens if they revoke your membership but you have a Costco Visa attached to it? Obviously you wouldn't be able to shop at Costco anymore but does that mean you're no longer eligible for the credit card either and it cancels immediately?
