What is the deal with the Costco hot dog vs the Costco Polish dog? I don't think I've ever even seen a hot dog at my store. Don't know why you'd want one of them skinny dawgs when you could have the satisfying girth of a Polish.

this is p much everything wrong with costco in an image and why I tend to get most of my food food at winco. Living out of a freezer is just shameful.

Guys there's only like 5 freezer items in that whole cart of like 40 things, the veggies/fruit and Normandy mixes are on the other side.

Not apologizing for the fuckload of Kirkland chicken tortilla soup, it's a winter seasonal item and you gotta stock up :colbert:

what's the shelf life on that costco pesto y'all?

:eng101: freeze that extra Kirkland Signature Basil Pesto in the Oxo No-Spill Ice Cube Tray (2 pack), then store the pesto cubes in the Ziplock Gallon Smart Zip Freezer Bags (4 pack) and throw them in the Danby 7.1cu ft Chest Freezer. They'll last about six months in the freezer and it's super easy to grab a few at a time for cooking.

Costco provides.

Anyone gonna brave the crowds this beautiful Memorial Day Weekend for some sicknasty deals and a dog/slice?

I probably will.

Trip report: expected it to be busy before the holiday weekend, but it was almost deserted. The fine employees at checkout all said that they're dreading tomorrow, as it's one of their busiest days of the year. Helped balance out their weekend bottom line with a $512 cart today.

Heck yeah I filled up on the $1.50 dog with soda and refill AND got a 12 pack from the fridge section along with sesame seed hoagie rolls, so we will be grilling up them all beef hot dogs all weekend long :patriot:

Trip report: picked up the Ring video doorbell/intercom at my local 'tco today, because all Costco Ring systems come with a free year of cloud storage. This purchase already paid dividends this evening when a door-to-door salesman stopped by, and I could express my disinterest in his wares via intercom without even having to get out of bed and put on pants. The future is now, and it's at Costco for only $189.

Pretty simple burger. 1/3lb beef, cheddar cheese, butterhead lettuce, tomato and thousand island dressing.

Since all Costco food court items are made from 100% OEM Kirkland Signature ingredients or premade foods, does this mean the 1/3 pound burger is the 1/3 pound sirloin burger patty from the freezer section?

A shameful cart, there is still empty space between items.

Costco membership, $20 Costco card, 12 pack of Kirkland towels, some Kirkland vitamin water and a goddamn food court pizza for $60

Thank you, Brother Tim, blessings be upon you.

Not sure what Iím going to do with a case of vitamin water of dubious nutritional value, but I wonít look a Costco gift horse in the mouth for eating a bulk box of crackers, which brings me to:

Costco product trip report:



These (local?) crackers are extremely my poo poo. They taste like the crispy crust of a nice San Francisco sourdough baguette, with the welcome addition of sea salt. Pair them with the variety pack of presliced cheeses from the deli section for maximum enjoyment.

Iím in a bind, brothers. I spend about $600/month tithing to the faith every month, and raking in that sweet executive cash back. However, there is an opportunity for double-dipping here with credit card cash back. But alas, I do not have a Visa card, and do not wish to get Costcoís own card as I already have a Citi card that suits my purposes much better (miles).

Could one simply launder the money by ordering a Costco gift card online with a non-Visa gift card to get the credit card rewards, and using the gift card as payment in the store instead? 🤔

Costcotip: check your own receipts carefully for the time being. Got charged for an extra pack of canned chicken, and the guy at the podium taking care of the refund said they had a brand new register system and were still getting used to it. Not sure if it's nationwide or just my 'Stco, but word to the wise.

This happened to me too. It was an item that had a coupon so we were erroneously charged for a second item and the coupon was automatically added on, the cashier realized the error, removed the item, but the $6 off coupon stayed. It feels a little like stealing from the collection plate, but itís my fiancťís account and thereís no way heíll go back and wait in line at the service counter to fix it, so :shrug:

Pesto definitely goes bad after itís been open for a while, freeze the extra in an ice cube tray as was suggested upthread.

The mozzarella sticks are full blown obnoxiously delicious. It's a real problem.

Rather than go cold turkey I decided to ease myself into dieting. First thing I did was cut my Costco mozzarella stick consumption by 50% and I immediately lost 13 pounds. Water weight, blahblahblah, but a good bit of that had to have been gooey mozzarella goodness.

I miss them. :(

Yesterday I visited the church and purchased a bottle of the insanely delicious garlic-infused olive oil. I loaded everything into the backseat of my brand new car, and when I got home found out that the glass olive oil bottle was broken. It was definitely already broken when I picked it up in the store, as everything that had been situated under the bottle in the cart was streaked with oil. During the car ride home the bottom half of the bottle basically dissolved into small glass shards, and dumped about half a liter of oil all over the (again) brand new upholstery.

I took my receipt back to the Ďco, expecting to easily get the olive oil refunded for my trouble, but the customer service lady was extremely unhelpful. She demanded that I return the bottle and the oil to get a refund, even though I showed her photos of the stained backseat upholstery and the glass/oil is now mixed with a swirl of upholstery shampoo in the belly of my shop vac.

A manager ultimately refunded my got dang $8.89, but my faith is shaken. Still drowned my sorrows in a hot dog + soda with refill though.
