Jamdug!: Is Costco any different from Sam's Club? I don't think there are Costco stores in my area.
Ambivalence: Pocket Ninja: I feel that I should have the authority to beat about the head and shoulders with a bamboo cane those individuals who use the word "proponent" to describe their feelings toward warehouse-bought frozen lasagna.Your milage may vary, I think they should be beaten with a bamboo cane on the buttocks and thighs.
Minoritydan: I buy pretty much evertything from Costco.Clothing, food, Computer, electronics (TV), furniture, freezer.When I was drinking milk it was approx $1 /gallon cheaper at Costco than grocery stores, and the gas is usually 10-20 cents cheaper too (not to mention the Amex True Earnings Business 4% cashback on gas).I'm executive member, so I also get a 2% rebate from Costco that covers my membership - and then every february I get a True Earnings rebate as well.
GoodyearPimp: YouPeopleAreCrazy: Or bypass the checkout line, and follow the direct path from display to front door to parking lot. That's why they have someone at the door, doing the TSA level interrogation.Maybe my local BJ's is different. Or maybe because I haven't flown in over 10 years I only have what the TV portrays the TSA to be and a few anecdotes to go on. But isn't the TSA screening slightly more involved than "take quick look at basket, punch hole in receipt"?
twidgetfitch: [lovegoodbeer.com image 400x300]Costco brand beer anybody?
Incontinental_Drift: YouPeopleAreCrazy: Incontinental_Drift: Costco supports progressive causes. Walmart supports Republicans.I'm pretty sure I could find a prominent non-Republican who was on the Walmart board of directors for several years. I wonder who that was.

Ivo Shandor: docfate: GodDAMN I wish Costcos in Canada sold booze.They do. It's labelled "vanilla extract".
sokisoy: I bought my wedding ring at costco... I like to tell people I bought my ring at the same place I buy my groceries... and sometimes my pants.
evaned: Eh, it's like gym memberships. People who get it and don't use it subsidize part of the cost of the people who do. So even assuming you're right in the large, that doesn't mean that it's true for everyone.
drewsclues: Costco is for suckers. Money saving tip: find out when the best Asian grocery stocks new produce during the week. You won't believe the amount of fresh produce you walk out of door with for 20 bucks.
AeAe: I went to Costco the other day.. I bought the big sack of dog food ($30). 2 shorts ($30), 1 plastic thing of apples ($6 I think), 1 bag of trail mix ($15) .. It came out to $100 so I must have bought something else..
namatad: Customers may believe they're paying for a chance to save money, but some experts think membership fees actually cause consumers to spend more.spend more than what??more than similar people who are not members?so these people buy food and then dont eat it - more?or they buy more at costco and less at other stores?when adjusted for geo-demographics, do costco shoppers buy more or less in total than other shoppers?meh, I could look this up on my work computer, but then I cant share the results
