The employees are more friendly & helpful for a reason... COSTO treats their employees very well.
My son worked in one when he was a senior in HS and through most of college so I know :0

Costco. Mainly because if their return policy, but it also helps that they are not affiliated with Wally World.

I am buying everything I try, which doesn't always taste as good once you get home! :-(

I have noticed that. Why is that anyway?

Costco over Sam's. However when I lived in Charlotte I had a BJ's nearby and I actually prefered it to Costco. One nice thing about BJ's, they accept coupons.

Neither. The big box places just don't make sense to me. I don't save any money because of all the impulse purchases. I don't have room for a 200 pound box of pasta. They're unattractive places to shop. I can't use my debit card.....

Actually - that's not the case

In both Costco and Sam's you can use your debit cards - I know as I do it all the time

In Costco, you can also use your AMEX card

In Sam's they also take Discover Card and Mastercard
