Default Gotta say...Costco is AWESOME!!!!

Just joined and I am Really impressed, and that is not easily done. Prices seem, for the most part very reasonable. From this first experience, this place blows sams, and BJ's away!!!

We have membership with all three and Costco is 'the best', but Sams and BJs are much more convenient location wise. Costco down in Alt Spg is a CF on the weekend.

I agree. I have a Sam's because of work and a Costco because of my wife.

Customer service at Sam's is terrible. Costco is much more customer oriented IMHO.

You will love Costco, I worked their while in college for 6 years. Costco is an awesome employer and as a result has great employees focused on member service. Only drawback, it is hard to walk out without spending $100.

X2 on it's almost impossible to walkout of COSTCO and not be 1 to 2+ hundred $$ lighter.

Come on!!!.....
WTH do you spend 1K on, unless your buying a TV every visit.

They wife and I went a tad out of control and we spent $135.00 Mostly all meat, and chicken. We have enough for several weeks though.
I really hope they're meats are good. Don't think you can screw up chicken

Costco is the best! Gas is generally 10-15 cents cheaper + 3% rebate. Products are good, but you better know your prices. A lot only in volume.
Positively stay away on weekends and time you fuel right....early morning, later evenings. I get a kick out of the idiots that wait 15 minutes in line to save a dime a gallon and put 6 gallons in their shitbox! I'll go only when my trucks need 30 gallons or more!
I also hear from a few I know who work there, they are great to work for. Their employee retention shows it. I've seen the same faces there for years!

Have you ever been to a costco??? Seriously, you have to go, really blew me away, and I've been a loyal customer of BJ's for over 10 years now. IMO Costco truly blows them away. They're "Kirkland" brand things seems like the real deal.

Have 18 month old twins lol. Also buy 6-8 bottles of wine typically so that also doesn't help. Usually 2 carts stuffed to the hilt.

Yep. We just spent $600 on food at the Winter Park location yesterday and it's just the wife and me. Bought a whole prime strip loin, whole prime tenderloin, 6 organic chickens, bunch of organic ground beef, whole boneless pork loin, spent all day today cutting them up and vacu sealing them for the freezer.
