Retail jobs do suck, but it's a false equivalency to say they suck equally. On one hand, you have a family who controls a mind-boggling amount of the wealth in this country and on the other is a company who is totally willing to tell their shareholders to go gently caress themselves. I'm not talking about whether or not it's fun to collect shopping carts from the lot.

I worked at Target for a while and we watched videos about how awful unions are and how we should report employees if we hear them talking about it. I made a joke about how we can't talk about unions once to my lefty boss and it was like saying bomb in an airport, his eyes widened and he basically told me to never go there again.

I'm sure Costco would prefer not to deal with unions (and many locations are non-union), but there are a number of stores that have unionized and the company is not horrid about it.

If you are serious about vacuuming, just spend a ton of money on a Miele canister bagged vac. It's seriously one of the best products I own. The powerbrush models are a lot more expensive but other vacuums just feel like lovely dustbusters to me now, the difference in suction and pickup is crazy.

Also, I finally witnessed the jamon yesterday. I thought my store didn't have any and then I turned around and saw a massive stack of them on a pallet. All I could think about was pulling off the world's greatest Jamon Jeist.

If she likes kitchen stuff I’ve found pretty good things in that aisle, but they seem to change the selection a lot aside from the big ticket appliances. I’ve gotten some colorful silicone utensils, high quality sheet pan and cutting board sets, at one point they had a nice instant read thermometer but I didn’t get it. You do kinda have to just browse the aisle because some stuff is boring and utilitarian but I’ve seen a lot of cool things with fun designs too.

There used to be Kirkland hazelnut spread that was way cheaper than nutella, tasted identical (to me), and didn't use palm oil.

I was trying to confirm that it was discontinued and found this awesome thing posted on reddit:

The chicken pot pies are legit. They're kinda high in sodium but all the ingredients are quality and it's a lot of food for the price. For the same effort as making a frozen pizza it really feels like a good homemade meal.

Can you even pump your own gas at a Oregon costco? Yeah I thought not so gently caress that

It fuckin sucks, but that's just all of Oregon. The 'co at least has tons of pumps and there's always someone standing right there, so it's about as good as it gets in this state. And you still can't beat those prices. My bigger complaint since I got into car tuning is that I've only seen 92 octane at Oregon Costcos, no 93.

Apparently the trick at regular pumps is just to get out and start doing it yourself, either someone will come to yell at you and you get immediate service or you just fill up and leave before anyone says anything. But I fear confrontation so I just sit in my car and let the big man come fill up my car for little boys.

Buy a couple of really nice knives and learn to sharpen yourself or find a local person who will hand sharpen your knives for $5 - $10 a piece. Chances are they have been doing it for years and will do an amazing job and you get to support them.

But if you're lazy there are plenty of mass-produced knives that come sharp as hell and aren't too expensive. The Victorinox paring knives are like $6 and rock solid so you could basically treat them as disposable if you wanted.

Every day I wake up, open palm slam a hot dog in my mouth...

im permabanned poster samsclubstomper58. i first got my costco membership when i was about 12. by 14 i got really obsessed with the concept of “chicken bakes” and tried to shop there constantly, until my thought process got really bizarre and i would repeat things like “onion dispenser” and “i love manufacturer's instant rebates” in my head for hours, and i would get really hungry, start seeing free samples in the corners of my eyes etc, basically prodromal executive member. im now on kirkland statins. i always wondered what the kind of “value” shopping at costco was all about; i think it’s the unnecessary leaking in to the cart, what retail theory considered to be the cause of empty wallet and fatass syptoms. i would advise all people who are costco "members" to be careful because that likely means you have a predisposition to a hotdogs. peace.

The brown bag is good. It opens very easily along the seam into a flat plate to eat your dog.

You will have to remove it to add condiments though, I get that.

I got yelled at about the bag once. I held it wrong and it split open so I asked the guy for another and he said, "THE BAGS ARE DESIGNED TO DO THAT. :mad:" I said I know, but I accidentally ripped it, so I wanted another. He gave me another bag with a second "THE BAGS ARE DESIGNED TO DO THAT SIR. :mad:"

I only got the take-and-bake once and it was borderline inedible to me compared to the food court. Way breadier crust and less flavorful sauce and toppings.

If you're taking it home though, always order your whole food court pizza "no-cut." It stays hotter and fresher, you can pick your own size of slice, and also that steel cutting frame always looks encrusted with old sauce and gross to me.

My fav thing to have with gin is cranberry ginger ale, I stockpile it during the holiday season. Has just the right amount of tartness and pairs really nicely!

I wish Costco here had more of a soda selection it is pretty much just coke and multi packs with cursed cream soda in it, the worst soda.

I've never found Costco soda prices to be very good unless you're always buying it at the regular price in other stores. At my local grocery store (Safeway) Coke/Pepsi products have big sales all the time and it brings the price per can much lower than Costco, so I just wait and then buy a few packs.

And yeah, the selection sucks. It's the same story with price for cases of beer at Costco too, but at least in the PNW they have a lot of good craft selections and the prices are decent, just not the best.

Around here the base price is $5-6 and they're always on sale buy 2 get 1 free and sometimes b2g2. Right now Safeway has pepsi 12pks 4 for $11.

Yeah, it's this exact deal for me, I always wait for buy 2 get 2. I basically try not to pay more than 25 cents for a can of soda and Costco never goes that low. Also they don't have Vanilla Coke. But I know I shouldn't drink much soda anyway, so I'll go without or buy generic before I pay more.

The foodcourt fruit smoothie is a sleeper item on the menu IMO.

Anyone else love these things?

Yeah, I love them too. They have a real fragile temp range when they're perfect though, once they start to melt it just becomes this sickly sweet juice. You can throw it in the freezer to try to recover a little but if they actually start freezing they'll get all these ice crystals and lose the smoothie texture. Gotta gulp 'em.

The vat of berry compote they use to make them is like my forbidden onion dispenser.

They started selling Kirkland beer again?! I’ve just heard that the Kirkland Light was legendarily awful

Yeah I was so excited the first time I saw it. 48 packs only, labeled LIGHT BEER. It was like 20 bucks. I was euphoric in the light (beer) of Costco.

It is easily one of the worst pisswater beers I've ever had. Whatever your benchmark is, Milwaukee's, Natty, Keystone... it's somehow both more watery and grosser tasting than all of them. I can't remember if I finished them all, but I definitely powered through an unpleasant number of them.

In conclusion I would definitely buy it again if they brought it back, it can only be improved.

Heres a tip for the gas lines. The hoses extend so you can pull up to any pump and just stretch the hose out if your gas cap is on the other side of the car. Its super easy to do.

I get such smug satisfaction out of skipping ahead of a bunch of cars and just stretching the hose to fill up before going on my merry way. I never have to wait more than 5 minutes when I go.

You're probably one of those people who looks at me waiting in the long line like I'm an idiot. When I was in Oregon I had an attendant tell me the same thing and I had to sheepishly explain to her that I was so anal about my car that I didn't want the filthy hose touching my trunk.
