My Costco has the self scan checkout, but you can't run booze through them, so I have to stand in line.

Costco/Sams Master thread.
« Reply #176 on: November 15, 2023, 07:55:03 PM »
sam’s is running a $20 annual subscription promotion so I signed up last week. being a combo costco/sam’s member makes me so much better than other people.
sam’s has loads more quality junk food, like by a mile.  i mean, they have little debbie and hostess crap wow!

costco has much much larger selection of good non-name brand non junk food food options and home goods.  their meat selection is very good too.  like prime steak and brisket etc

my costco is probably 2x the size/selection of sam’s.

i don't believe in the sams club wine selection.  sorry, but i find the concept ridiculous.

I've been dining at Costco for lunch every once in a while over the last few months.  I like to go, grab a hot dog, maybe a slice of za +drink (that entire combo runs you <$4) and go browse the store for a bit.  It's a nice time.

no

but i did notice they had some sweathshirts/hoodies with the costco logo on them.  tempting!  but i'd feel like a poser.  I'm not really "there" yet.

i do this at least once a week and sometimes worry that the greeter/membership card checker guy/gal is judging me for being there too much.

Have you ever had the chicken bake?  It seems mysterious.

do not have a sams club 'bership but Kirkland golf balls are the same as Titleist ProV1 (not ProV1x)

here's a fun thing you can try at home: I call them (re: Kirkland golf balls) CostCoV1s LMAOOOOO  :lol: :lol: :lol:

Advanced: if you find a Kirkland golf ball out on the course, if its a 2 then that's a K2. Otherwise its a Kirkyboy

New York City costco's do not sell booze! so not really worth it IMO.

Also has anyone worked for a company that sells crap to costco? good grief

Jim Cramer always tells stories about Costco bullying companies whose products they sell. He’s also a big fan of their wine selection.

Love that.  Keep up the good work, Costco.

Will try the C-Bake sometime.  I notice that a lot of the guys that eat lunch at Costco read books while they're eating.  Feel like a dork looking at my phone amongst them.

Used the Costco membership to buy golf cart batteries this year. Probably saved $120+ from the best deal I had found anywhere else.
