I still love Costco
Mrs SB just asked me where the hot smoked salmon we got from Costco is. “Dunno” I reply. after searching around we decide we either left it in the trolley or at the till.
Phone them up and they confirm we’ve paid for it but none has been handed in from the tills or car park (they keep a log).
“Oh dear” says me.
“I’ll put a note on the system so you can have another one free of charge next time you’re in”
Proper service 😀Posted 5 years ago
Can’t see Tesco being as understanding!steve-gMember
The best thing there is the meat, you get “proper” meat, cheaper than you would get supermarket meat, we do as sharkbait, buy a months worth, portion it out, then freeze.
The main trouble as others have said is spending a fortune, when you get carried away in Tesco it’s one thing, but getting carried away when you’re buying in bulk can cost you a bitPosted 5 years ago
Some good info there guys … she’s done the mince into portions this week.
Will be in the market for a new tele in 6 months, so looks like CC will be the place to shop… How do thier price compair? (although I dont mind paying more for service like that)
Good to hear about the quality of the meat …. was wondering if it was a little too good to be truePosted 5 years agocarlosgMember
Massive sickly birthday cake for less than £15 , we tend to stock up on their own brand loo roll,razor heads in 24 packs and also the croissant for Sunday breakfasts. They do some really good deals on books for the kids now and again too. Check the fridges out too they do a Greek yoghurt (Kolios) thats 10% fat instead of the (total) stuff most of the supermarkets sell thats only 4% ,it’s so rich and tasty I have to hide it from my kids or it’s gone.Posted 5 years agolodiousMember
It’s the best warranty for TV’s….within 90 days you just take it back, no questions asked. Full refund given. I did this a few years ago, it’s great, esp if your worried about back light bleed on LCD TV’s, which can vary from sample to sample. Take a lot of stress off, knowing that you can just return it.
They don’t mess about, and if you use them a lot, they really look after you (friend had a laptop that broke out of warranty, he took it back, they looked at his returns history to check he’s not an abuser of the system and gave him a full refund.)
Workshop stuff can be good, and it’s an interesting place to look round, as their stock is different to most UK retailers. I don’t think it’s that cheap though, but I still like it.Posted 5 years ago
Have to say – I’m a little disappointed with their new website
would be much better if I could see what they’re actually selling in store since so much of the range is seasonal – rather than them offering to sell me a speedboat.

So do you guys shop there weekly rather than Asda etc ?
Best for a monthly shop for things that last a long time, and don’t expect it to replace normal shopping, you won’t get a loaf of bread and half a dozen eggs in Costco (pack of 6 loaves and a gross of eggs maybe, but not just one).

I like it – where else can I buy a hovercraft and use of a private jet? 🙂 I take your point though – would be useful if they had a stock list on there.Posted 5 years agoDracSubscriber
Great place but let my membership go as it’s 70 mile round trip and cost me a fortune every time I went as it’s too tempting. May have to join up know as the freezer is empty after the daughters pain in the arse friend switched it off and as mentioned Costco is great for stocking freezers.Posted 5 years agoandylMember
Website is completely different to in store.
Some of my favourite things from Costco:
British Pork chops – so thick and juicy. All the fresh meat is butchered and packaged in store so no horses and no rubbish.
Black pudding – HUUUUGE black pudding, very cheap. Cut it up and put in freezer bags
Cheese – massive blocks or packs of different types.
Tortilla wraps, part baked baguettes and the part baked soda baguettes
Lavazza coffe – 500g for about what you pay for 250g in most shops
Croissants etc – big tray for £3.99
I could go on….Oh and the pizza at the cafe is yummy 😀Posted 5 years ago
