I'm in eastern pennsylvania. I always considered my region "lame rear end suburbs", I didn't know we registered a significant muslim population to have a specific halal section when other people don't.

Anyway, there were two fewer lambs today than yesterday so I guess they are selling? Probably to old PA dutch people who love buying in bulk to "save money" and have like six freezer chests full of meat at home already.

Those guys have electricity? Would they have to salt the lamb to preserve it?

Well, even the PA dutch goes to Costco. poo poo's legit.

Praise be.

That's Amish, but they are PA dutch also. Its one of those square/rectangle things, there's a much larger ethnic group that you call PA dutch around here.

Anyway they are notoriously cheap and love their deals so gently caress yeah they go to costco. They probably try to haggle with the cashier also.

We got married in Maui (kihei) last year, and after getting up at the asscrack of dawn, spending half a day traveling by air, dealing with the rental car service, meeting with our wedding planner, picking up the dress, getting rained on multiple times, trying to find where the gently caress everything is, dealing with our retard condo renter putting the wrong key in the lockbox, finally getting said key after getting rained on for a half hour, we got groceries at the one and true constant in life.... Costco.

We got everything we needed for the week, completely hassle free. We headed out and I got myself 2 (TWO) loving gosh darned hotdogs and refillable twenty ounce drink for the low price of 3 American us dollars. It was the perfect pick me up to an otherwise dogshit day of travel and wedding stress.

This is pretty impressive, i've heard everything costs way more in Hawaii because of shipping, but Costco still maintains the $1.50 dog n drink standard

I was in South Korea recently and my expat friend I was visiting confirmed the onion side dish thing is really popular. He then further ranted that his (korean) girlfriend does it and he hates going with her because it embarasses him.

However, I did not go to Costco while over there, though I was sorely tempted to.

Can’t you have two people on a costco account? Just keep one card for yourselves and hand one card to another family member for free and rake in 2% on their spending also.

This is probably against costco’s ToS though so I wouldn’t advertise you’re doing it

I mean like you have two different families on one account, with one adult from each family having their own card in their name on the account (because you can have two), not just borrowing someone else’s card.

I mean if you go in separate from your SO regularly or whatever then yeah you each need one and can’t do it.

I think only the primary person on the account gets the 2% back. I'm pretty sure I don't collect on what the other people on my account buy, otherwise my 2% check would have been higher. My case could be different though since I have a Costco employee membership, but I think the employees just have a standard executive membership. I'm not great with some of the lesser known membership details though, membership is one of the areas that I have never worked in.

That would make sense

Guys I'm buying the Sherpa throw today! There's a few brands, which is *da original*?

The plush with sherpa wool throw you want is $15 and like 60x70 or something. I forget the brand.

The kirkland brand ones are just plush blankets (queen $17, king $22) and also good, but more for bed than couch/lounging imo.

Single nearly 30 male here, Costco membership still worth it. I also get the big-boy executive membership and it pays for the cost difference (and a little more) every year.

e: I'm trying real hard to not do the math on how much money I spend at the co to get $60-80 back every year..

Jesus dude that’s like $76,000 a year how many $1.50 dogs do you eat

Yeah even as a bachelor I can finish the 2 doz eggs. They easily last 3 weeks at least and then you can hard boil then for another week or so if you have any left

Oh Adaira posted:

I got the executive membership last year cause they had a drink cooler giveaway if you signed up. I only spend maybe $1000 a year at most so the 2% return doesn't make up for the cost difference. Should I just suck it up and start buying a bunch of stuff or should I just go get the downgrade and have the difference refunded?

There’s the reasonable adult answer and then there is the answer you’d expect from a thread that worships consumerism with a communion of dollar fiddy dog and drink (plus refill)

Are the .97 price codes still real? I didn’t see any .97 stuff anywhere at my costco last i looked. I saw a few asterisks which i think mean “not getting restocked” though
