i bought a big thing of those snyders pretzel sticks and was going through them at a decent pace but got sick of them halfway through so there was a big pocket of air in the container. now theyre all stale

there's very few food items that i have found a way to make work for me but i still get tons of value out of my membership.

Buy Meat and freeze it mang
I get those nice rear end prime nystrips, $80 for 4. It's a nice once a month treat.
Two prime strips at a nice restaurant with sides would cost ya over $100.
The seafood is also good. Giant rear end Tiger shrimp and Lobster tails.
Plus good reasonably priced wine.
You can get some good luxury foods for less then a restaurant and make a nice dinner for bae.

Bulk is probably relative.
What we get at a regular supermarket may be considered bulk there.
I've worked in Japan for a bit and yeah food comes in slightly smaller portions but it's not as drastic as you'd think. But things were almost always sold individually. I don't remember seeing any sort of mutipacks, but I admittedly only shopped at convenience stores, not full size grocery stores.

it's like how a small soda in the united states is bigger than the largest soda they sell at the same fast food place in another part of the world

I did not notice that in the foreign countries I have visited, I think it's just a meme. However, I ate fast food rarely (maybe once per trip) while over seas for work because lol at being cheap when the company pays for your meals.

I have a Costco, BJ's, and Sam's Club all in my town and have been a BJ's man more or less my whole life. Is Costco wildly different? BJ's doesn't do gasoline, that's for sure. Buddy from same town moved to South Carolina and now all he talks about is Costco so I'm curious.

We're getting a bj here in Charleston, SC.

My mom signed up for the new BJ's that is opening soon and added me on her membership. I got the card yesterday. I guess in exchange for letting her piggyback on my Costco membership:(Dat executive membership cash)
I am a devout Costco man but the free membership and the promotional 10¢ off a gallon is tempting me to check it out when it opens.

We used to go to BJ's before the Costco opened here. I always kind of remember it as a slightly grubbier Costco.

I do remember that they used to have a giant chain-linked area where they'd toss all the shipping boxes and let customers use them to hold the poo poo they bought; one time the door in was open and you better believe 10-year-old me took a sprinting gainer into the giant mountain of boxes.

So a step up from Sam's but still no glorious Costco huh
