2% cash back. If you spend ~$3000 a year, the cash back covers the cost of the additional $55 you pay for executive. Anything higher than $3k is just a bonus. The best part, which is in line with their return policy, is that you can cancel it any time and get a refund and if you keep it for the whole year and don't recoup the full $55 back in cash back, they send you a check for the difference. For instance, if you only earn $40 in cash back, you'll receive a check for $15 to offset the full cost of the upgrade. It's essentially free.



The return policy is enough for me. Return any time at any point on nearly any product (except certain electronics) no questions asked. You don't need a receipt as your receipt is tied to your account in the system. This would be especially useful for making warranty claims without the receipt. Heck, you don't even need to make a warranty claim if they still sell the product. Just take it back and swap it out.



Every store has a different policy but MOST Costco's don't ever require you to clip coupons. Even if they did, every coupon has the exact same barcode so you only need to bring in one single coupon for them to scan. On top of it, the coupon books are right there at customer service so you can just grab one as you walk in and rip it out while you shop. My store just keeps one copy of the barcode at the register and scans it to cover every item on coupon in my entire cart. There is literally no work involved at all and the products have the "with coupon" price right on the sign so you don't even have to have the coupon book. Just walk around and find the signs with the discount on them. You can just buy anything you want without worrying whether or not there is a coupon associated with the item.
You are wrong on many counts. The fact that "every store has a different policy"is inherently farked up. The coupon books availability is another question mark. Not all stores. Stop being so enthusiastic about defending such money sucking practices and do some research before you snap out such stupid, incorrect answers. Another mindless Costco groupie.

ConfusedConfusedConfused Whenever I goto Costco, whatever is on sale under their coupons are automatically reduced at the register. I dont even bring a coupon anymore, they just scan 1 coupon and it auto-detects any item you purchased.
That depends on the store policy and even within the store sometimes they change it up.

My costco normally takes them right off automatically by scanning a coupon at the checkout they have taped on the register. I don't know if this is because I'm an executive member or if they do that for everyone. But a couple of times a year they demand you cough up the coupons...sometimes just one, sometimes all of them, and one time the guy insisted I tear each one out. After about 15 minutes of fumbling with them and complaining and having 6 people in line behind me screaming at him, he gave up and just scanned one. That may have just been an employee issue, because frankly I haven't seen that cashier since then.

A couple of times a year they won't let you leave big things in your cart and do a process of moving everything from your cart to another empty one. But they haven't done that to me in a while. Maybe just looking at their shrink stats to see how much the cashiers and door checkers miss, stuff thats under something else?

I always enjoy it when minimally intelligent people volunteer for service on the ignore lists of thousands. laugh out loud

Truth is the vast majority of costco's don't ask for the coupons a vast majority of the time. Nothing else the guy said is wrong.

And if you hadn't noticed, store to store variances in policies is pretty much the norm, not the exception. Ask anyone who's tried to do a price match at best buy or staples, or those multiple layered coupon deals at target.

Only in some states, but they just added california to the health insurance list. The health deals look pretty favorable compared to what the affordable care act is offering next year. Basic high deductible coverage with prescription coverage and a ~30% copay on most things but 100% coverage for preventative, with dental is in the $350-500 range for me, and to compare a similar deductible plan with no prescription and copays for everything through Kaiser is well over $500.

My home was $1000 and my car $500 every six months, and I had pretty high deductibles with Farmers. Ameriprise quoted me $780 for my home annually and $260 for my car. Plus the $100 cash card for the car insurance. Plus some freebies both on the home and car like lockout and home glass repair.

$1000+1000+625 (home, car, health) = $2625 for Farmers and Kaiser
$780+520+350-100 = 1550 for Costco

Theres my next 11 years of costco membership paid for in first years savings. And Ameriprise and Aetna (the car and health underwriters) get very good grades, so its not like I'm paying less and getting crappy coverage or service.

I have to say I wasn't really that comfortable with Verne Schillinger as my insurance company spokesperson. laugh out loud

Here's the link to the $100 cash card for the car insurance deal.

The only thing that sucks about Costco is the sillyass coupon thing. If I'm laying out $100+ or so for the so-called Executive membership than don't make me have to remember coupon books,clip coupons and every other part of the entire, idiot coupon process. Automatically charge me the lowest available/current price.
At least here in Houston, the cashier always scan in a generic coupon barcode so you never ever have to clip or bring your coupons. even at the self serve checkout, there is a always a coupon book nearby for you to scan the barcode. All you need to scan is one barcode for all coupon items (they are all the same code if you look in the back).

I personally love costco, but I am curious about all the posts about their meat department being cheaper than the grocery store. What grocery stores are you going to? I'm in central PA and meat/seafood are about the only things I wouldn't try to get at costco first since they always cost more there. I agree that the prices suck at the big chains like Giant, Safeway, Wegmans, etc... but all the single store and local chains around here blow Costco and the big chains away in price and service. Costco's quality on their meat/seafood has always seemed excellent, better than the big chains though no better then the local stores I go to. Maybe it is just around here, but if you think Costco's meat prices are good, you might want to check an actual butcher shop or 2.
Its probably quite regional. I can get filet mignon for $9.99 at my costco and rib eye often drops below $7 a pound. At the el-cheapo stores like Winco and Food4Less, I could approach these prices but the quality is absolutely not even close. At the regular chain supermarkets, the prices are from 20-30% up to 50% and more higher. I can get wild salmon at Costco for under $10 a pound and scallops are in the same price range per pound.. I can't touch that at any other store.

Butcher shops? Ehhh...generally almost double the price of the chain markets. Quality is great if you're going for prime convenience cuts, but I'd rather eat four pretty good steaks instead of one really good one. And if I want really good, the prime beef at Costco is much, much cheaper than prime beef anywhere I can drive to.

I'm sure if you live within 20 miles of a major cattle processing town, the beef prices are probably favorable towards small independent shops and local chains. I do live in the middle of such an area, but the Costco beef and seafood prices near me are unparalleled by markets.

Freshness is also a factor. Costco turns their food faster than just about anyone. I've never had a problem with picking up a package of meat or seafood and seeing it was expired or about to expire. I can't really say that for the local markets. Quite a bit of what I pick up there is near or past its expiry.

I always enjoy it when people with the IQ of a domestic pet speak authoritatively on a subject matter of which I have forgotten more than they would ever hope to knowvomit.

"Variances in policies" is a contradiction in terms genius. Listen up now, you might learn something. Costco is an international retailer. Their success is based on standardization of everything from the cafe menu to pallet dimensions so the inconsistency of which you were drivelling on about is really an issue of non- compliance.
