    Costco Thread

    Share your Costco experience...

    Are you even a Costco card holder?
    Is one close to you?
    Have any of you ever bought their gas?

    True Story.

    Went to Costco around lunchtime.

    Took every sample, and then left.

    Free lunch...

    I really don't have any idea if there is one anywhere near me. I've only heard of it online. I don't even know what it has. I've always assumed it was like a big Staples or Office Max, but apparently not.

    Also, that's crazy you've never seen one.

    They're massive, and everything is in Bulk.
    Like you can't just buy one box of cereal, you buy 3 boxes all in one.

    On that topic, it blew my mind when I moved to SoCal how many fast food burger places there are. When I grew up on Long Island it was basically McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's. Maybe an Arby's and or WHite Castle here and there. And one new Checkers.

    When I got to San Diego it was all the above (except Checkers which is Rally's) plus Carl's Jr., Jack in the Box, In-n-out, Five Guys, Del Taco has burgers, Rally's, Fatburger......crazy

    Oh no they're seperate companies, but their the same thing.

    Sam's Club = Walmart

    But Costco and Sam's Club are identical.

    I do not like CostCo at all. Their store in my area is poorly setup and doesn't seem to have any order. My grandparents have a card but I only go to BJs for my bulk shopping.

    I'll agree that the placement of a lot of items doesn't make sense, but once you've been a few times you get used to it. I personally am willing to deal with a less than ideal setup for the fact that Costco is a great place to buy stuff at.

    You could get everything you possibly need at costco. I just hate that I pay 55 dollars a year just to be able to shop there.
