Not much selection of sliced cheeses or cold cuts.

I ended up spending way more money at BJs than Costco. I have both memberships for years and only buy Costco Kirkland stuff.
I'm calling a big Costco size load of bull fertilizer on all that.

Which interestingly enough they carry in the spring.

Cranberries when there is a coupon for $3 off. It's much cheaper than buying small pouches from supermarkets.

Free samples for me too.

Toilet paper.
Contact lens solution.
Vitamins.
Menstrual products.
Paper towels.
Laundry detergent.
Trash bags.
Berries.
Shrimp.
Nuts.
Wine.
Organic greens.

OP if you're only going once a year I assume you don't get your groceries there. They swap out new foods just about every other month.

Kirkland salmon dried dog food and Check-ups.

Kirkland toilet paper, unscented clothes soap, cleaning wipes (theirs are larger than the ones in the pop-up can and half of the packets have little cleaning nubs on them), and all sorts of Kirkland brand products.

Vitamins, glucosamine, Metamucil...

Glasses are the best deal around by a long shot.

TVs, electronics...

Kitchen stuff - bowls, sheet pans, parchment paper

Books, socks, sheets, towels, underwear, garden bulbs...

Gas, tires, batteries...

Beach gear, snacks...

I like their quality and prices. If they carry something we use, I buy it there.

I also love their no-questons-asked, doesn't-matter-how-long-ago-you-bought-it return policy.

We live about 45 minute ride on the interstate so it's not just a casual "Let's stop by COSTCO". We spent $500 this trip which is another reason we don't go too often. I feel for the effort, time and gas involved we should really make each trip worthwhile. We take a freezer chest for the cold things and we have lots of nice storage shelves in the garage as well as extra fridge. Everytime I come back from there i realize all the things i wish i had gotten and never regret the things i did get. it all gets used eventually.

Our membership expires soon. Do they wait a certain period of time and then discount membership to get you back?

Many thanks.
I shop at Sam's.

When we lived in Arizona, our Costco had a filling station for members that was 5 to 10 cents lower than most other places. Another reason to go there.
