I signed up for the Costco Visa card not that long ago. It's pretty rad because I don't even have to pay the loving membership fee since my mom's the primary account holder.

Sup folks, just hanging out at Costco waiting for my tires to be installed. Right now I'm enjoying a bomb rear end chili dog.

I tried buying a car through Costco, the prices were okay but not great. I ended up going the traditional route of having a friend of a friend hook me up at the dealership. Probably wouldn't attempt again.

I used Costco as a baseline and also a way to not have pushy salesmen during my test drives. In the end I got a dealer to match another dealers internet pricing though and it was about $2000 less than the Costco price.

The Japanese Costco recently changed their Muffin packaging, I think you choose 2 packs of 6 now, similar to how bagels work. Well, maybe they changed it in other countries too.

Those things are dangerous as hell, in terms of calories. I used to eat them throughout the day since they were so filling, but that can't be so good for you. They expire after a few days though so you're kind of on a time limit to finish them off!

That's how Costco in Wisconsin has done it since I became a member.

Also you can freeze them to keep them fresh long enough to eat then over the course of a much more reasonable period of time.

Thinking about upping my Costco game and buying a leather sectional for the living room from the 'stco. $2100 for a set, that's like...the price of 1400 hot dogs. Should I take the plunge?

Depends. How long do you think you'll have the couch and is it longer than long will it take you to eat 1400 hot dogs?

Does that mean ice? Is ice cream just called ice there or what?

Ice cream in German is Eis so I'm guessing that's pretty standard for Germanic languages.

Everything at Costco is good.
I'm serious. (though I wasn't a huge fan of the Udon, it wasn't bad by any stretch)
Just go walk down the frozen isle and grab what looks good. It will usually run you about 2 bucks a meal.

I wasn't thrilled with the turkey burgers, but otherwise everything's pretty darn good.

Why isn't Costco carrying IBC rootbeer anymore?

Those fuckers at Sam's Club do though.

They probably can't get it cheap enough to keep it under the 15% markup cap.

Didn't matter to me though. Wisconsin Costcos carry Sprecher, which is far superior to IBC.

Honest question, does anyone ever order just one dog? I always tell myself that this will be the time, but it's always been minimum 2, sometimes 3 if I blaze in the parking lot beforehand.

One time I got a dog, a pepperoni pizza slice, and a yogurt. It was too much.

I mean the dog by itself is like 450 calories, I agree two would be too many but if you're a full grown adult male you probably generally eat closer to 700 a meal even as a non fatty.

I feel like a dog & chili is a valid option, especially if you split the chili with someone. The only thing better than a Costco dog is a Costco chili dog.

I will admit that I usually get the bratwurst instead of a dog, though.

So I was laid off on Tuesday after my company was bought out, and I thought to myself, "What would be better than shopping at Costco"?

Working at Costco!

Just put my application in. Here's hoping I'll be basking in the glory of the dollar fifty dog on a regular basis.

Guys, I just finished my first day at my new job. It isn't the seasonal job at Costco I mentioned before though. It is, however, a short drive from that Costco.

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.

Read this article titled "The shocking truth behind Costco's $5 rotisserie chicken"

"The tender meat often contains several ingredients including sugar and salt -- even going so far to compare it a potato chip. In addition, the skin is flavored with MSG, sugar and other natural flavors. This combination helps explain why we can't have enough of the chicken. "

Holy hell, they season the chicken!

My office had its annual cookout and we had the big box of frozen burger patties.

I can definitely vouch for them. Obviously not as good as fresh, but it's the best you're gonna get from a bulk box of burg.

The bulgogi mandu they sell in the frozen section are amazing. Pretty good sized pillows of deliciousness, and a serving of 4 is only 280 calories.

Definitely buying them again when I go back, the naanwiches are nothing compared to them.

Was looking for something to grab to throw in the work freezer. Sounds like we have a winner!

Sun Prairie, WI still has the onion dispenser.

Ask sometime if they'll make you a fresh churro. They are loving incredible when fresh, but they don't get ordered that much so they mostly just sit under a heat lamp getting stale. I also wouldn't be amazed if they were removed from the food court sometime soon-ish given the change in menu recently.

I mean they're still good, which is a testament to their quality, but yeah. Get you a fresh 'ro.

I went during the lunch rush and some dude had just bought 3 of them, so I'm fairly sure they weren't sitting around too long. Granted, Taco John's makes a better churro, but they're a loving dollar at the 'co.
