I've been really happy with my Costco couches. And dining set.

I also just switched my car and home insurance through Costco's program. Saved $680/yr, that was going from $1800/yr to $1100 for identical coverage. :eyepop:

The line I always drop when someone is heading over to Costco is to ask them to pick me up a four-pack of Pianos. Our a three-pack of lawnmowers.

It always gives a good chuckle. Then one day I was there and they actually had a Piano out on display and for sale.

Yeah they had a Yamaha piano and keyboard roadshow the other week at mine. Really nice instruments.

Costco food court got rid of the Polish dog and I've been mad about it ever since.

I have had the great joy of going to Costco in both Hawaii and in Spain.
Hawaiian Costco has a really great cheeseburger at their food court, and the cheapest gas on the island. It's also a great place to buy chocolates/gift boxes whatever.

Costco in Spain was interesting. We went to the one near Madrid.
They had two armed security guards. One at the jewelry counter, and one at the registers. I snuck a creep shot over my shoulder. Costco in Spain doesn't play. :blastu:


They also had an excellent selection of cheese, olives, booze, and jamon. Food court had barbecue chicken pizza, which was p-good.

Anyone have experience with the Costco car buying service? Thinking I might actually buy new for once.

https://www.reddit.com/r/askcarsales/comments/b2cpc7/costco_auto_program/

My parents used it years ago. They had a good experience.
The gist is that you'll always get a decent to good price, but if you're Mr Deals you can probably do better dealing directly with the dealership.

It's very frowned upon and a fire-able offense for employees to look up membership information just to snoop around.
I know an employee who looked up Britney Spears' ex husband's membership and saw that he scammed a return for a Roomba. He bought a new one, and then came back 20 minutes later and returned it. The return box had a dusty old used (and broken) Roomba in it.

Same employee told me that she saw people return weird stuff, like half a bag of rotten onions because they didn't use them up fast enough.

Costco propaganda in popular media:

We have the Workaholics tv show episode ("that thick Kirkland denim"). The episode's conflict centers around the gang wanting to be allowed to use the company's Costco membership to buy snacks for the office.


We have a recurring gag in Baskets, where one of the characters works at Costco (Martha), and Christine Baskets loves Costco and buys everything there.

Here's a good article about why they chose Costco for the show. There's a part of me that wants a Kirkland Signature logo on a shirt.

In this film, Michael Douglas' character, recently released from a mental institution, is convinced there is Spanish gold buried underneath his town's Costco and hatches a heist plan to get to it. It's a fun movie.

costco pumpkin pie is great because it's like $8 for 6 lbs of pie. you make the kids eat that while the grownups eat the homemade forbidden pies (like pecan). the first time i really felt like a grownup was not when i turned 18, graduated, got married, started a career job, had kids, or bought a house. it's when i realized i liked pecan pie.

FFFF there's a sectional that's like $750 ($1100 on the website) in my warehouse, I'm hoping against hope that there will still be some left Saturday when I have a truck available. This one is going to be a photo finish if it works out at all.

Rent a truck from Home Depot or Lowe's. It's like $30 for 4 hours and it's a big flatbed that's easy to load and unload

There's nothing normal about that car. I've had to special order every tire change.

I put on bigger tires about 100k miles ago, no regrets.

Costco were big old jerks about changing tires on my Scion tC a couple years ago. Factory stock is 215/45ZR17, and they wouldn't sell me anything less than Z rated tires. That car's not coming anywhere near 145 mph unless I strapped an ACME rocket on top of it.

They took them out years ago though.
