Castco membership worth it?

    Their house-brand Kirkland Handcrafted Ale is an absolute steal for how good it tastes. Ours is not posted, BTW. HH

    Well that right there is scarey. I am adopted and have stolen your Moron Lube so maybe it all makes sense. :supergrin:

    I didn't think twice and that has gotten me in trouble before too.

    Costco supports democrat politicians almost exclusively.

    Sam's/Walmart supports mainly Republicans.

    Who do you want to give money to?

    I dropped my membership at Costco the day their "No Firearms" sign went up. The nice part of that was my membership was up for renewal in a couple of weeks and they refunded me the whole year. I then went straight to Sam's Club and joined there for $40.

    I save enough between gas and prescriptions to pay my membership fee many times over. Any other savings are just gravy. When I bought my Samsung Smart TV, theirs came with the USB Wifi adapter that was $70 extra everywhere else.

    Our local Sam's store is struggling. We are a community of 50,000, but with neighboring states. Sam's has been discounting memberships to small business to encourage sales. I personally cannot justify a membership.

    FYI, get an entertainment.com coupon book and Costco will give you $50 worth of free stuff.

    We have Sam's, BJ's and Costco, nearby.

    We gave up the BJ's membership.

    Sam's - my wife goes there a LOT, to buy coffee and such, for the coffee room, at work.

    Costco - Pretty nice store. Good selection.
    Gasoline prices are lower than Sam's prices, by a few cents per gallon.
    Got a GOOD price on a "Little Giant" 22' ladder (with a LOT of accessories!), the day we joined.

    I don't go into any of them, on a regular basis.


    As for concealed (or open carry). . . . in Maryland. . . .:rofl::rofl::rofl:
    (That means it's a non-issue, here.):supergrin:

    Whether you have a choice to carry a gun or not, knowingly giving your money to a known anti-gun corporation is not a non-issue.

    I'm not telling you not to do it. Everyone has to make their own decisions for their life's situation.

    But it is not a non-issue. It should factor into your decision.

    It depends. Like a regular grocery store prepared food is not a good deal (however if that is what you normally buy then it is a good deal). Good prices on meat and produce as well as food staples. The other really good thing is their return policy. Don't like it? Bring it back for a refund, no questions asked. Also, they give an extra year warranty on most of their electronics.

    They also have services: Car insurance, eye exams, glasses, contacts, passports, and a whole bunch of things you would never think of going to Costco for.

    Oh, it also makes for a really cheap meal for a family. 1/4 hot dog and a coke for $1.55 is hard to beat.

    His point was pretty clear to me. I thought the GOP was destroying the middle class or so I am told.
