Had a Costco membership and returned to BJs. Reasons: store looked very grim, no self-checkouts, fewer products we'd actually use, worse choice of meats (only 85/15 ground beef, seriously?), portions are way bigger than at Costco, annoying to have to show your card to enter the store (1st world problems, I know, but it adds to the list). Also, the closest store closes at 6pm on the weekends, WTF.
We usually shop at Trader Joe's and get a select variety of things from BJs (yogurts, meats, fish), and we're picky about the quality of our food. BJs was just a better choice, but it's different for everyone. I was looking for this deal a month ago but they didn't have it.
P.S. Boston area.

This is what I have seen the last time I was at BJs. They have a wider selection as they have a good, better, best focus for most products they sell. So they have the most choices for the consumer.
Costco, has mostly only 1 choice, sometimes 2, but not much in the way of choices for any given product.
Admittedly, never been to Sams, but I have been told its basically a giant Walmart.
I think when it comes to cost, its pretty much the same, or you are splitting pennies at best.

Intelligent analysis, and spot on. Totally agree about the relative rankings of all 3 stores. BJs has improved its selection of organic and high-end speciality foods (e.g., Quinoa, great deal with a coupon in the past) lately.

My family has a BJ's membership for whatever reason. Overall, I don't think it is worth it, but they do have a few good things.
-Deli....prices are around $1-2/lb cheaper than the grocery store on most things...and you can buy as much or little as you want
-Bakery. 9 huge bakery bagels for $3 something, but you have to get there early in the day if you want them fresh
-Okay deals on toilet paper, etc. especially when they send a coupon book around
-Cereal is usually a good deal. Got an enormous box of Quaker Oatmeal Squares for ~$7 with a BJ's coupon. This stuff is insanely expensive at other stores, including Walmart.
-Some produce items are okay, like the romaine lettuce. Other stuff is cheaper at the grocery store, unless you run a zoo and need a zillion pounds of bananas.
-Some health and beauty stuff is a good deal (store brand claritin, etc).
-Self-checkouts are nice, and means nobody is checking your membership card (mine doesn't when you enter, I heard a few may though, especially in a more inner-city area) *wink*
-I found the gasoline to be of low quality, or at least got me less MPG. Price wasn't significantly lower than the other stations either. Same with Propane. Local gas station had it cheaper.
-They make a big deal about accepting coupons, but the way most coupons are today (50 cents off 3..), I'm not buying $25 worth of cereal to save 50 cents. The BJ's coupons they send around are okay though.
-I have never really found a good deal in the frozen foods section of the store, unless you need a big box of soft pretzels or something, but YMMV.
