I haven't bought a second box of loving trash bags in many years, I don't know how many bags are in this loving thing but it's too huge roles and it's not even close to running out. Two big rear end rolls and they appear to break the laws of physics or are literally Jesus.

Also I got the Costco Visa, that's right fucks, THAT Visa. Get it if you haven't, seriously. I get paid, pay off the balance, and use it for every single spending I can except the mortgage. Bills, groceries, gas, parking at school, collecting the cash from friends at a restaurant and paying on my card. All cash back! Paid for a cruise, broke up with the girl so I cancelled it, got a refund, and still earned cash back on the original payment. Over $400 earned at it's not even close to being a year in my wallet.

costco sells this salsa called mateos or something that is incredibly good and if you live alone like me you can buy a years worth of tp, paper towels, laundry detergent and body soap for under $50

assuming you bathe and wash your clothes that is

e: the kirkland brand crown royal knockoff is a key buy too

I bought a $20 thing of trash bags I think two years ago.

^^^^Holy poo poo.

I actually used mine twice today for the first time in a while. I'm switching to this full time.

I pay all my bills except my mortgage with it. Wait til my mortgage gets taken out of my bank account, and transfer all money to the Costco card balance. Cash back is no loving joke and the hundreds you get a year are loving worth it. I applied and they gave me a $4,000 without even checking my credit. Costco even does bankruptcy in bulk!

unfortunately no one else has seemed to catch on besides Trader Joes

he's right for some things and wrong for others. I find costco to be generally more expensive than winco for:

fruit
vegetables
poultry
pork
cheaper cuts of beef

costco is better on:

paper products
dairy
expensive beef
seafood
packaged foods/snacks


Since I eat mostly fresh stuff and prefer poultry/pork to beef I find myself only ever using my gf's costco membership for cheese, milk, and paper products.

Are you factoring in the cash back I get on my loving Costco Visa card in your stupid calculations for idiots?

Meydey posted:

Costco essentially provides consistent pricing on bulk sized quantities of product. Some are higher than a general grocery store, and some come in lower. Where Costco shines is the fact that 99% of the items are a known quality, with less mystery brands (store/cheap). Kirkland Signature is considered one of the highest quality store brands, and multiple products have been verified to have been produced by known brand names. Add in the unconditional 100% return policy (minus electronics, but at at 90 days is still better than most retail) and the value is there. Yes you drop $200-400 each trip easily, but at least the stuff you get is quality.

Plus a dog on the way out.

The best part of Costco, for me, is that everything is about $10 as far as groceries go. Makes budgeting while I shop super easy. $100 bucks to spend means I pick up 10 items, so simple!

They brought back those sorbet things at my Costco. My ex-girlfriend used to love these and we literally fought over the coconuts on more than 1 occasion (there's 3, they know what they're doing with these drat odd numbers). Well guess what? I cancelled her name under my membership and bought my own pack and now they're all loving mine and she can't get any!

Bad news... :( The only Costco's that I go to near Denver are near Mississippi and Havana (my normal one, it's p. great), and way out by E470 and Smoky Hill. Is a toll road worth taking? It is if there's a Costco at the end!

Sucks when I could really go for a 1/4lb dog and drink with unlimited refills on a Saturday and I'm at least 36 hours from getting one.

By the grace of the savings gods my Costco always somehow has the same amount of wait no matter what day it is, they always know exactly how many cashiers they need at all times. PBUC.

Honestly, I believe that there are certain life choices that each person must make, maybe you would call them "keystone" choices or something. They are choices that define a human being and the sum of their future potential and past learning.

What people choose to put on their hot dog is one of those choices. You can tell a shitload about someone via what they put on their dog.

No you can't. I know a lady that drowned her own loving kids and she ate the most bougie sauerkraut and onion dogs you've ever seen.

Some people don't appreciate the more abstract things that Costco does for you. You liked the tortilla chips they carried? Well they're rotational, they'll be back, until then, beloved member, branch out, try some different chips, expand your palate, you'll find something else you love.

So I suggested that Costco membership to my folks, and turns out they have a sams club membership. Instead of instantly telling them to gently caress off with that, I actually did some research. There are lots of tradeoffs, but the most important thing is definitely the food court. Does this look familiar to any of you?


The drink is half the cost of the dog/soda at Costco and the dog is the same price. You're paying ~1.5 times as much there and that's grounds for murder.

Anyone ever tried freezing the muffins or pastries? I love them, but as a bachelor living alone there's no way I could eat 12 muffins/8 danish before they go bad. The croissants freeze well enough.

Look man, I've said a bunch of times in this thread Costco is great about teaching you new things about yourself.
