Tips

  • Ca$h only: for pizza/hot dogs
  • Don't txt while pushing your cart!
  • When waiting in the snack line watch out for shopping cart ninja thieves
  • Beware of all the people that have no clue how to drive a shopping cart!
  • All the coupons in the coupon book can work as a "master coupon". They all have the same barcode on the back. Hence u only need to give one coupon.
  • a hot dog and coke for $1.50
  • For returns, get there as early as possible. Usually line starts getting long around 11:30 am.
  • Membership Nazis. God forbid I buy groceries for my mom... with her standing next to me. Instead, they made her overdraft her checking account. But hey, I can pay with cash... from my hand. Really?
  • Avoid coming on Sundays at all costs!!
  • Drive to the third entrance and make a left turn. You will avoid fighting with the pedestrians across the front door. There are many parking spaces in the back with short walking distance. Best deal!
  • Samples mostly after school and on weekends. weekends = HELL!! Cocola macaroons are awesome. Maple syrup same as the expensive tourist ones in Canada, just labeled different
  • Dont play with your phone walking back to your department from your break....you might walk into something or someone.
  • Member Service sucks!
  • Whole Rotisserie Chicken only $4.99 what a deal
  • Check fruit carefully, sometimes it is rotten.
  • If you forget to bring your coupon book with you, you can get a "master" coupon for ALL items. Just ask the membership monitor at the entrance! Enjoy!
  • Drive in at the entrance near the tire center to avoid the busy parking traffic at the 1st entrance. If going Sat., go at 9:30 to get best service turnaround.
  • Lots of Asian specialty items. If you're going East on Hosteder, turn left on Lundy and continue to next light. Turn right. Continue around bend and go right at the delivery driveway for easy entry.
  • Con: Lots of people using disabled placards illegally. Hardest Costco around to get a disabled spot.
  • Selection and customer service.
