^^ We save much more than our yearly membership by shopping at Costco + we get money back for our qualifying purchases.

The price of gas alone at Costco is worth the membership.

Disclaimer: You have to know what a good price is on what you are buying no matter where you shop. Costco fits our needs 4X per year.

Yeah...a bunch of people running over other people to get a bite of food. They act like they have had zero food in their lives.

Costco will end up the loser in this one. The diehard Coke fans will just go buy it elsewhere. Just because Costco likes to offer lower prices, it doesn't mean their distributors have to agree with them.

Don't care too much one way or the other. I shop at Costco. I prefer Coke to Pepsi. I don't drink a lot of soda so I don't ever buy it at Costco anyway.

Doesn't bother me. I don't buy but a rare coke at a fountain now. Costco can run there business and Cocoa Cola theirs. Free enterprise at work.
