So is the quality of Costco gas like, going to balance out the 2% cheaper price or whatever if it fucks your car up later down the line? I always fear those super discount gas places because it seems like there must be corners cut somewhere and usually it's quality control that goes first

i only buy gasoline with jen-u-wine 18k gold flecks in it. makes my exhaust sparkle, none of that discount gas for me no sirree

Hot dog protip: they keep little containers of sauer kraut behind the counter to really make your dog experience special

I'm eating some Kirkland macadamia nuts, they're good.

The Kirkland chocolate covered caramel macadamia nuts are so good, they must put nicotine in them or use black magic in their creation. Thank God they're actually kind of spendy or I would shove an entire container down my throat every 3 days and feel no shame

Costco has some good microwavable "veggie bowls" which contain 400 calories of solidly healthly vegetables like black beans and quinoa. USDA organic of course!

If you are posting in here and don't have an executive membership what are you doing

Executive memberships are for people who are poo poo at math, sorry friend. Just get the credit card, it's a far superior option.

One time membership fee of $110, if your 2% cash back for the year doesn't cover your renewal fee then Costco bridges the gap at their own expense.

Executive membership is for winners

I try not to look at other people's carts at Costco cuz they are seriously shameful. An entire cart full of food and every single item is processed garbo

On the flip side mother loving ten pound bag of organic carrots for 5 dollars. Perfectly washed, no dirt god drat what a deal

Just coming in to say I took a stroll down to the Costco by my work on my lunch break, only a short 4 block walk. Picked up a 1.5lb bag of organic baby kale, chard and spinach for $2.50. It boggles my mind that it's that cheap

So close to Costco every day, truly blessed

Costcos nuts in the hard plastic containers aren't a good deal. The Kirkland walnuts in the plastic beg are excellent however

Check this out, Safeway doesn’t design their stores around your predilections for apples and yoghurt, they design them around how they can take deliveries and keep stock most efficiently. The notion that grocery stores are playing a 3rd dimensional chess game is consumer narcissism. No more, no less. It’s Ahab screaming at a mindless animal.

Walgreens puts their pharmacies at the opposite end of the door, so when you're in there to pick up your one rx you gotta walk past all their overpriced Chinese garbage. Just lol if you don't think retailers purposefully set up their stores to sell more crap, their business being to sell crap.

2 days in a row I walked a short 5 minutes from my place of employment to Costco and bought myself a $1.50 1/4 lb 100% beef hot dog with drink plus refill. Topped with the finest relish, deli mustard, onions and sauer kraut Costco can offer.

the dollar fifty dogs days are numbered but yeah it'll probably be like 1.75 to 2 at most.

with seriously inflation since the start of the dollar dog days, raising price of beef lips and assholes, minimum wage, etc i'm surprised costco isn't already eating a $-1 or more loss for every dog sold.

we used to have $1 ice cream cone store here in berkeley and been like that for years. like seriously crazy flavors and pretty drat good. its went up to $1.25 finally, then a few years its at $1.50 now. still a bargain compared to most ice cream which is like $4 for a tiny spoonful of ice cream. just like costco's inevitable $2 dogs will be a steal vs $6 hot dog places

Rising minimum wage? The cashiers at my local Costco get paid like 22 bucks an hour lol the cart pushers make more than 50% of Americans.

I buy giant gently caress off bags of potatoes, carrots, and onions, and their 1.5lb bag of mixed greens also their clam shells of apples. Even eating just 1 apple a day those puppies are not going bad. Pretty much everything else is iffy and not really a deal anyways. The brocollete is dank as gently caress but kind of expensive

Btw the Costco car insurance is the bomb and executive members get extra perks as well

The large bottle of Kirkland pinot grigio is a supreme buy at 7.99 in both taste and price. But don't be fooled by the standard 750ml for it is inferior in taste brothers. Pbuc

Also drat that sherpa is one great blanket
