You're gonna have to give some more details on that executive bonus check deal..
Piece of cake. You get an executive membership for $100. You also get the free american express costco card, which doubles as your membership card. You then receive an annual check for 3% of everything you buy. Spend enough to earn $100, free membership. Spend more, you get paid to shop there. My check is usually $200-300. I'm single, have my son half time, and I've got dogs and cats, but I'm easily able to hit that mark just buying whatever they have that I want thats cheaper than I can get elsewhere, which is almost everything.

If you fail to accumulate $100 in benefits, go to the membership desk with the check and tell them you're thinking of downgrading to the regular membership because you didn't spend enough. The vast, vast majority of the time they'll renew you for whatever you earned. I don't imagine it'd work if you only spent a few hundred bucks. I've only heard of a few people that got to $50-60+ and didn't get a comp.

The forever return policy on everything except electronics is often worth the price of admission alone. I've gone to the customer service desk and told them a food item I got didn't taste good and got my money back. I bought a couch there and one of the cushions got a little lumpy 2 years later and they took it back. You don't even have to keep your receipts, they'll look it up.

20-50% less than the supermarket? How much is milk at your Costco? At mine, it's $2.45 - $2.65 per gallon and that's more expensive than at the supermarket, where you can get it for $1.99. Also Organic milk is $9.99 for 1.5 gallons which is also more per unit than the $5-$6 gallon you can buy it for at the supermarket.
My costco sells milk for 2 gallons for around $5. Its $6 at the supermarket. I can also buy 2 gallons of organic milk for $10, while its $6.99 a gallon in the supermarket. I can buy wine for $6 a bottle that sells for 12-13 at the store. I buy rib eye steak for $5.89 and filet mignon for $9.99. Nowhere NEAR the store prices. Do the math.

As far as other food items are concerned, yes the per unit price at Costco is generally low, but you can find stuff cheaper at other places if you catch on to deals/coupons. But the fact that you have to buy stuff in bulk, even at low prices, does not work for some people.
Sure, I love spending hours and hours collecting and collating coupons vs just taking a package off the shelf at costco. The 'bulk' complaint doesn't really work anymore. I'm a single guy with a small child and some dogs and I have no problems with the size of most of the packaging.

Just got back from Costco. Bought a pack of 3 belts for under $10. Bought two giant containers of cat litter for half the price walmart charges for the same container. Two tubs of lobster bisque each big enough for two people for $8. A huge bag of baby bell cheese for $7.50 when the supermarket charges more than that for half the size bag, a nice solid memory foam dog bed for $38...cant find this quality for under $50 even on sale, and a huge tub of organic salad greens for $2.25.

I know that Costco has good deals occasionally, but I can totally how other people will think the $55 yearly membership fee is just not worth it, especially when you can just use their gift card to buy stuff without the membership fee.
You don't get a 3% kickback for the gift cards, and you cant use any of the costco services like the fantastic insurance and other services deals I get without a membership. Those pay for my membership 5x over and then some each and every year.

There are, I'm sure, plenty of reasons why it wouldn't work for someone. Like you never buy anything, you use no services whatsoever, don't own a car or a pet, have no children, and never leave the house. Then I guess you couldn't figure out a way to make it work.

I'd spend roughly $1200-1300 less buying my products and services at Costco vs other options and I've done the math plenty of times, even with extreme couponing.

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.

I really hate it when they send me the executive bonus check for ~200-250 every year, I pay my $100 membership fee, and am just beside myself with anger over the other $100-150 I'm paid to shop there.

I also hate buying dog food, cheese, wine, meat and milk for 20-50% less than the supermarket.

What I really hate most of all is spending about six minutes getting an insurance quote from them and saving over $500 a year on my home and car policy vs the very best and cheapest price I could get from any other insurer, and their coverage is significantly better since it includes roadside assistance, home glass replacement and a bunch of other stuff thrown in for free. And the SOB's sent me a $100 gift card just for doing it. I hate them SO much. In a couple of months when my divorce is finalized, I'll be forced to swallow my pride and buy health insurance through them for 3/5th the price I'd pay for the cheapest health insurance, and it includes prescription drugs, which nothing anywhere near it in price offers. Bastages!

I really can't stand the enormous savings, great inexpensive services and the best customer service in the retail business. Bunch of jerks.
You forgot the worst part of costco.

No questions asked Return policy on EVERYTHING (except electronics).

I cannot stand their worst return policy ever.

I love bestbuy. They give you hell in returning items.

Thank you guys, I will give it a shot. Got in on the $100 Costco gift card deal a few months ago and haven't had a chance to use it because there's only two Costcos in the entire city of 5 million+ ppl

If you have a Costco gift card you do not need to have a membership. I have been doing it for the last 4 years.
Quote from playfulcoyote View Post :
Yes it is true. I don't currently have a membership and I have been shopping there for the last four years using gift cards. When you get to the register they do need to call over a manager for an override however. They will ask you if you want to get a membership and you just tell them not at this time. It's about a 30 second delay.

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.

Very well said..people not going costco don't see the value of membership.



If you spend 8k a year at costco, which is very common, then you get $160 back if you have Costco Executive membership, which cost $110. so you still have $50 in your pocket and all the saving..everyday..and best return policy that any retailer can offer.

Since you buy without worry about return you will buy more.
How can you spend 8 K in costco .. Thats a lot.. My annual spend on grocery is 2.5K..

In the Costco I go to, if your purchase is $40 or less then yes you can shop w/out a membership. Also, alcohol can be bought without a membership. Don't know if its just my Costco though. Zip: 92122

While $8K seems a lot not knowing family situation, I find your 2.5K to be very small. Grocery bill for just me and my gf is probably $3.5K and that's only because we probably eat-out 35-40% of our meals. I don't even live on East or West coast where cost-of-living can be a bit higher.

Anyone with dogs questioning the price of Costco membership is missing out big time.

The Kirkland premium dog food is very high quality. No by-products, no corn, ect. Rated very high on dogfoodadvisor . com, right up there with Nutro Ultra food. The price is less than even Nutro's cheapest dog food line. You will make up the cost of membership with just a few bags of dog food a year alone. They also have top quality dog treats, toys, and beds at less than half the cost of similar ones at pet shops. Worth the price. I did a "free day" at Sam's club to compare dog food and the Sam's Club food is on par with the basement brands like Alpo ect. Junk.

I think I'll try to shoot over their this weekend and see if they have those shoes.

Edit: The name of that high end kirkland dog food is "Natures Domain." Review: http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog...-dog-food/

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.

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.

You can get milk for about $2.50 a gallon at Target or Walmart. Walmart open up one of those supermarket only stores around me lately. I shop there a lot lately. No crazy long lines like regular walmart.

Somethings are silly cheap at Costco, drugs prescription or not. Otherthings.... not so much.

Executive membership + Costco Amex Business card = Winning. You get two checks at the end of the year (one from Costco and the other from Amex). The check from Amex you can cash in at Costco's customer service counter.
