    I used to save a good amount of money on milk, eggs, cheese, gas, olive oil, berries, and nuts. I ended up saving money by shopping there because of that. But they raised their prices and I kind of just break even now at best.

        That's because your local grocery store might be taking a bigger hit on milk to lure customers in.

        Costco is generally a better deal with more curated potentially higher quality products. But it's often times not the absolute cheapest if you're real thorough about maximizing coupons/deals across multiple stores.

      Worth it for gas, toilet paper, soda/soft drinks, and liquor (if your state allows it), assuming you have space to store bulk things. Used to be you can get decent deals on things like TVs, but I don't know how true that is anymore, haven't done that in years.

Only about 1 in 20 people I see there seems to be from America too, though it's hard to tell with the Armenians because they're so insular that you get 3rd and 4th gen American-born ones who can barely speak a few words of heavily-accented English.

      I'm not a lone man, but we're a family of two. We shop at costco primarily for meat and for liquor. Sometimes we'll buy big pieces of meat and cut them up for the freezer. Often we'll buy frozen fish fillets and such like. And you can't beat their prices for liquor and wine. They almost always have Johnnie Walker Black, which is our preferred everyday whisky, and often they have Lagavulin 16 which is our special-occasion whisky.

      I do. There's a lot of good deals on stuff other than bulk groceries and it makes the membership worth it, lots of household stuff, sometimes tools or electronics, clothes (they're great for low fricks "day off" dadcore stuff), alcohol, etc. They also have really good deals on "luxury" foods that are a ripoff anywhere else, salami and so on, and also stuff like bacon and butter that you can freeze most of.

      Just the opposite, the food court is now CLOSED to non-members. At my local one there's no effect since it's inside and you had to show your card to get in anyway. At the ones with outdoor food courts, they now check ID when you order.

      Some spergs run around screaming that restaurants are open to everyone by law, or that pharmacies are open to everyone by law, but that's a state-specific issue and I've never run into any bullshit like that in any state I've lived in.

      Yeah my local Costco did the same thing recently, anybody used to be able to walk up and order at a window, now you have to use touchscreen order kiosks that won't do anything until you scan your card.

      Unfortunately, money cannot always buy class. While it's true that the average Costco shopper is less poor than the average Walmart shopper, that generally only applies to white people. If it's Chinese and Indians, it doesn't matter how rich they are, they will always be trash. And there are a lot of chinks and pajeets in my local Walmart and Costco.

      In Alpharetta, it's wall to wall Asians, mostly Indians. The one a few miles up the road in Cumming is a nicer shopping experience but that location doesn't sell alcohol so we have to go down to the Alpharetta store sometimes to get booze. The good thing is that the liquor part is completely separate from the rest of the store and apparently Indians don't buy much alcohol so once you get past the demolition derby in the parking lot, things in the liquor store are reasonable.

        You know if its a sale item or not depending on the cent cost of the item.

        Prices ending in “.97”: These prices have been marked down. According to Costco, prices ending in “.97” are usually discounted, but not always.
        Asterisk (*) on the upper right side of the price tag: This symbol indicates that the item won’t be reordered once it sells out. This means you should stock up on the item if you need it, as it may not be available again.
        Odd pricing, such as 79¢, 49¢, or 89¢: These prices indicate specially priced items that Costco got a deal from the manufacturer. These prices can be better deals than at other stores, but not always better than the 97¢ markdown.

            There's a lot of Costco deep lore. For example, if they run out of stock on a particular item, then you are technically allowed to take the floor model for free, which sometimes leads to scams where people get friends to buy a bunch of items and then return them, so Costco have to place a new floor model, rinse and repeat. But honestly most members don't even read the full Costco bylaws so they have no idea what they're missing. Personally I've only met maybe 10 people who even know about the Executive Lounge and the poker games.

            Yeah, the "Death Star" asterisk thing is great.
            It was fricking hilarious hearing the leftards reeeeeeeeee when they put it on Bud Light after the troony-fluid thing last year.
            I also noticed it on an item that I was buying regularly, and stocked up on a few months of it. Sad that it's gone but I'm still going through my stock. Maybe they'll bring it back like they just did the duck.

    $1.15 per week for gas that's $0.15+/gal cheaper than anywhere else, walking a lap around the store for free samples, and occasionally actually buying some reasonably cheap food
    i'd say it's worth it

      Gas at my Costco is consistently $0.40 cheaper than discount gas and $0.60-0.70 less than Shell/Chevron. Lines are always pretty long but I don't mind waiting 10 minutes to save hundreds of dollars a year.

    They sell groceries there, but I don't believe that is the primary purpose of Costco. It's a wholesaler; it's primarily to buy shit wholesale (in bulk or cases). You might actually get a good deal and save if, for example, your fat ass buys a case of Twinkies or Pop Tarts cheaper than per unit. E.g. a case of 8 boxes of pop tarts for $24 ($3/each) rather than $4.30 per unit.

    Costco products/services have generally been in decline for several years but it's still worth it for:
    >decent quality staples (not the cheapest, but often the best VALUE)
    >gas
    >hearing aids and glasses
    >occasional deals on other items, like currently $100 off Kitchenaid mixers
    >ultra-liberal return policy
    and also....
    >LITERAL GATEKEEPING
    The atmosphere inside our Costco is remarkably different from the Walmart down the street. You do the math.

      Unfortunately, money cannot always buy class. While it's true that the average Costco shopper is less poor than the average Walmart shopper, that generally only applies to white people. If it's Chinese and Indians, it doesn't matter how rich they are, they will always be trash. And there are a lot of chinks and pajeets in my local Walmart and Costco.

        We have a BJs membership.

        There’s a nice BJs near my old job over an hour away that was a pleasure to shop, even if still a warehouse experience out of the 80s. That area isn’t very upscale, but Lilly white.
        There’s another BJs 5 minutes from my house mere blocks off of an upscale shopping strip that has been the main suburban drag since the end of WWII.

        This BJs is filled with the dregs of humanity. You could probably get a quorum of United Nations membership just by polling at the doors. Every shopping experience here is filled with screaming latinas of every stripe from dominica to patagonia, pakis and indians scamming each other while competing in aromas, eastern euros trying to slip extra stuff inside their boxes, hutu and tutsi re-enacting hotel rwanda in the parking lot, and zombied out on fent staff that has to deal with this shitshow…

        I leave stressed any time I have to shop there… it’s like being on public transportation sober, you’re on full alert to all the nonsense around you and know that none of it is normal or should exist in a civilized area

        We shop there because it's cheaper to buy in bulk. Also idk what you're complaining about, Indians and Chinese people make substantially more money than white people in America. If anything, we use your presence as a barometer of quality lel.

Yeah, if you consider only the top 10% of society who are positioned to emigrate you find this is the same everywhere.

    not even a big deal. the real problem is that their prices are now fixed to be almost identical to what you can get at any local non-bulk store. you’re paying for either the label of it being organic/fair trade and the slightest increase in quality for some products. so instead of saving, you’re paying the same price but in turn get a different brand. cosco is still worth it for meat because of the declining quality of processing and shipping

      It totally depends on how much you shop there and what you buy. My parents have the "executive" membership, which has a cashback thing that more than covers the annual fee so it's definitely worth it for them. If you're in a place with expensive gas the savings from Costco can easily cover the cost as well, I save at least $10 every fill up so it doesn't take long to pay off my $60 membership.

      It's also worth it to me just because I can get better stuff for the same money, though. Like say I need towels or pillows, I'm gonna spend the same I would at Target, but I get way nicer ones for the money. They've got a lot of food I like but wouldn't buy at regular grocery store prices too, especially stuff like jerky, salami, cheeses, etc.

      The west coast has these things called Costco Business Centers which are closer to restaurant supply stores. That's where you find the whole goats, and 55 gal drums of space lube. But every Costco is theoretically a wholesale store, despite what Reddit's outrage when they see someone buying a whole pallet of pies or Star Wars stuffed toys. (Every single warehouse has a big sign that says Costco WHOLESALE, Karen.)

    only problem with ones in my state are indians will load up their entire 4 generations worth of family members to go walk around costco with an empty cart and b***h about how expensive everything is and how everything is beneath them and not as good as it would be in india (weird how they moved here though, right?) and then leave the empty cart in the middle of an aisle and leave after loitering for hours

    but to be fair the poos in my state do this at every large chain store so it's not exclusively a costco issue

    tl;dr costco is based and if you complain about the membership you are high school drop out living miles below the poverty line and thus you don't matter in anybodys life including your own

      I wageslave at Walmart have a small payroll deduction for the plus membership at sams, but Costco seems to have better items. I just hate how routinely packed it is every time I've been and ultimately decided not to renew my membership. Maybe it's just that I'm visiting at bad times.

        Mine is always pretty packed (so is everything in my area though) but I find the best time to go is early afternoon in the middle of the week. That avoids the commercial shoppers that are in there on Monday and Friday, the big families that come on weekends, the old people that always come early in the morning, etc.

        I have visited both and in my experince Sam's is a bit less packed than Costco, though I think Costco carries better, higher quality items than Sam's club, and the Kirkland store brand is itself generally is pretty quality, too. I favor Sam's Club for most of my in-store shopping because it's less crowded, as well as have a soft spot for the pizza. I've been on the fence for a while about renewing my Costco membership.
