actually the way they do it works pretty well for me. only a couple or so items are must-buy for me at any time, thus no need to buy 10 different items every month, geez, how many 40 oz bottle of shampoo or 70 counts of one kind of snack bar can you finish in a month.
I buy shampoo at amazon, 50oz of Pantene for around $2.50 on sale.I believe this to be cheaper than Costco, even on coupon. But certainly not every month.
I do like the QUALITY of many of their items (mainly the Kirkland-branded stuff), but a lot of things used to be closer to half the price of retail. Perhaps retail has come down in price (relatively) over the years/inflation.The produce and whatnot are alright. The rest of the warehouse (I don't go there for anything but food since better deals can be had on clearances, craigslist, certain stores, etc) with less-perishable items just aren't priced well. I've even found that frozen fruits for smoothies I can get for a better deal per oz/lb at a store about a mile from my house. I still shop there since they continue to be one of the few reasonably priced stores that treat their employees quite well. The smaller places with similar ethics/food quality just costs much more.
The "sales" are still nothing great though, nor the current prices versus the incredible prices of their start-up days. It may all be the market and the way retail has shifted to warehouse pricing, with the internet and technology changing how everyone shops.
Does anyone know how much is the Quicken Deluxe is? After the $20 coupon. I am asking because right now there is deal on Amazon.com that if you buy Quicken Deluxe + TurboTax Basic Federal + E-File 2012 for a little over $27 and I can use my discover card rebate on it and no sales tax for me there.
I see on costco.com, it is $29.99 for it after the $20 coupon. So I am getting it from Amazon.com instead. If I buy it from Costco, I would have to pay for the sales tax on $49.99 which be $3.56.
Cal King was available in store. $800 (or $900 online including delivery). Sale price brings it down to $640. Excellent deal.
Bought this mattress about a month ago. Very comfortable. Plush firmness only. But very supportive. Compared most closely to Castle Rock (i think) Sealy from Macy's which was priced at $1600 at their end of the year sale. But Costco version include layer of gel memory foam as well (instead of only regular memory foam). $800 is a great deal, and $660 is even better.
Will be going to Costco on the 31st to get a price match.
Just got this for $640. It's replacing a 8 year old mattress. Our old one lost its support so hopefully this is good one.
