I do not have a Costco local to me, my closest is about 4 hours away, but I've always wondered if it's worth it?
Paying to shop is a weird concept to me and I think unless you went regularly it wouldn't be worth the membership.
No. We do not have Costco membership. My husband refuses to PAY to shop. We went there once as a guest of a friend. We had a good look around and quickly concluded that it was a bit of a gimmick. If we were members we would probably only go once or twice and then we would have wasted our money. My husband is very good at checking the unit price of all items before he buys. He said that in most cases the unit price is the same or even more expensive than Coles or woolies. Do the math. Just because you are getting 100 toilet rolls doesn't make it cheaper. Our nearest Costco is quite a drive from here, so I wouldn't be going there very often
I agree with your husband. I think it is criminal to charge people money to spend money in a store. And if the savings aren't there for everyday grocery items then i feel sorry for people who have been sucked in
Two things I remember about Costco . . . number one was in Vancouver, the first Costo I had ever seen or heard of . . the enormous rat running around in the car park . . and number two . . . thinking, "Oh, this is just like Jack the Slasher used to be." LOL
We used to have one, but I found it a pain you had to buy in bulk, and a lot of the brands I think were american, we didn't think it was a good idea, we shopped there a few times and gave it a go.I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a big family.
Not for us as we don't buy in bulk. I did get the membership when they opened first in Sydney but soon found out it was not worth the effort . They do have some stuff which you cannot find elsewhere - so there was that initial excitement, but that didn't last long!
