The Japanese Costco foodcourt has the hot dog combo for 180yen and slices of pizza are 300 yen, they used to be 250 yen but they raised the price a few years ago. They also used to have good Chicken Provolone sandwiches but changed them to Chicken Bakes. They have Bulgogi bakes as well which are pretty good and recently changed the recipe to it.

Anyway going there makes it feel like you're back in America with idiots just running through the aisles with oversized carts and being oblivious to their surroundings. They do have a good mix of imported and domestic products, though.

How do Japanese people have room for groceries bought in bulk? I always assumed they have to live in really small spaces.

My wife's family in Brazil placed a 3.3 liter bottle of guarana soda on the table in their house, it's not a restaurant but I still felt that the bottle was comically huge as an American.

Bought a new couch last weekend for $799, went shopping today and saw the price dropped to $649, went to customer service and got $150 back on the credit card.

What's the maximum normal grace period for things like this where Costco will honor a price drop after your purchase?

Costco literally pays me money to shop there, and I'm paying less for what I get. Supermarkets mark up their products about 25%, Costco is about 15%.

Using my Costco Visa to book a cruise and vacation in the UK.
Costco travel is giving a $160 cash card for the cruise, and 3% back on the whole mess. Not sure if the cruise gives the 2% membership reward also.

I don't think you get that 2% executive cash back from travel https://www.costco.com/executive-rewards.html

Has anyone ever done their vacation/cruises? I've never done a vacation through an agency, but poo poo, I'd give Costco's a shot!

I've gone to Cancun and Punta Cana through them, and I've gotten free upgrades and Costco cash cards from my executive membership, would definitely keep using them.

Also they have partnerships with Hyatt and Best Western so consider that for a discount whenever you need to travel somewhere.

Costco started selling Chili.

Buy one with your 1.50 hot dog and do the needful. You can thank me later.

The first time I saw my Costco selling chilli at the food court is when they were also selling a big rear end plastic container of the stuff at the deli, and they haven't sold it there since then .

Just treat is as a debit card and don't spend any more than you have in the bank!
