You ever see a nature documentary where a swarm of piranhas eats a live pig in a manner of seconds and leaves nothing but bones? I once saw that happen at Walmart with a pallet of $2 Coca Cola 24 can boxes.

i buy one of these like 4 times a year. charmin, natch, only the best for my bung. if i didnt live with a FEMALE i could probably stretch that to once or twice a year

Went shopping at Costco a few months ago and there was only a thirty cent difference between the Kirkland regular toilet paper and the Charmin ultra soft two-ply with twice as many rolls. It was amazing.

I forgot to make an edit of my post yesterday, but they upgraded the screens at the gas pumps to be bigger and easier to see on bright days. So clear and glare free.

I never get gas at Costco because the lines are ridiculously long and I'm only saving like 8 cents over my local arco

I save nearly thirty cents on average and usually don't have to wait more than two minutes depending on the day.

If stco were to unveil a bunch of stores as competitors to 7/11 or trader joes I would be immensely happy. Imagine it, popping in at the corner for some $1.50 dogs and a drink and then going mad on that Kirkland snack food. Please Costco, don't fail us.

Like some sort of Costco Mission. Spreading the good word from place to place. PBUC.

What is the portrait in this analogy then?

The price of the dog. It stays the same price as time goes by. But if they decide to examine (raise) that price, then Costco will die.

Costco gifted me with a free contact lens when the left one I purchased there 3 weeks before got stuck on the lid and dried out. It let me see the glory of my next $1.50 dog and drink with pure clarity. COSTCO CLARITY! Truly I am blessed.

Also ChorCut Elk and Pork brauts are loving delicious.

PBUC!

I'm gonna have to buy more contacts soon and I'm definitely doing it at Costco this time. PBUC!

I still have to have two fans blowing at me to get a decent night's sleep, so sadly I won't be having any use for the coveted Sherpa Throw this year.

However, I bought my first new car on Saturday. Then on Sunday I went to Costco and bought a set of Goodyear floor matts for $15. And then at the register, they took another $4 off. PBUC!

So a couple weeks ago I went to refill my gas and a friend joined me for sacrement. I told him about the Costco Kimchi and he tried it. He actually kinda liked it. Said it's not something he'd eat again.

We went last week and he made more.

So I am very confused. I took my car for an oil change at the dealer. I've been mostly been filling it with Costco gas since I got it in October. The dealer recommended I not fill it with Costco gas.

I have free oil changes from the dealer for 5 years. Otherwise I wouldn't have bothered going there. The thing is I didn't mention that I use Costco gas. So I'm baffled as how they knew. They don't have their own gas.

My dad returned a recliner to Costco he bought a few years earlier because a random spring on the seat broke through. He didn't have the receipt. They looked it up on the computer and gave a full refund since they stopped carrying them. It was a completely painless experience. PBUC.
