    It's like $50 or $60 a year.

    Grab a few Roto-Chickens, a $25 6/qt Mobile One case then top off your 93-octane beast ... And you just made your money back.

    It gets crowded and it closes early, but service is always great, quality top notch and sometimes it's nice to just wander around and eat free snacks.

    Depends on what you shop there for and if it makes sense for you/your family. We purchase mass quantities of meat and specific frozen/cold foods (burgers, bacon, etc) that would otherwise be double the price anywhere else. Their fruit/veggies are usually pretty spot on as well.

    I refuse to wait in line for gas to save .10 cents a gallon. Plus they don’t sell diesel or e85 here at my Costco.

    Nope, but 3 gallons of it is $125 after tax.

    Trav, you are making money off this site... I would expect Gentlemen JD before CR... The only good liquor to buy is vodka, reason why is costco paid for the recipe from KETTLE 41, as well as over vendors but couldn't get the JD patient

    Oh, I don't drink that stuff. I prefer Bourbon. However, I buy it for my FiL and other family members that are hours away from a Costco. I like the Kirkland Vodka and Rum though. Kirkland Vodka mixed with Kirkland Naturally Flavored Sparkling Water and some juice from a 5 pound bag of limes is damn refreshing on a hot day while turning wrenches.

    I'm waiting from them to bring back this:

    I'm a big fan of Gentleman JD, but as for vodka, Tito's all day

    I got to thinking about this today......if you have an executive or business membership you get 2% back every year. Last year I got $400 and change back. Costco gas is currently $0.40 cheaper per gallon than the other stations near my house. Between those two my membership fees are taken care of.

    There are also websites that list the best things to buy at Costco. Follow their advice and you'll save over the course of a membership:

    Don't need a membership to buy alcohol, at least in Indiana.

    Hehehe, that sound's awesome but no youtube
    If you want to pay label style sure, where in indy are you? You could look up the closets plays to Costco and save a few bucks escp if hosting a party. Did it multiple times and saved my butt costwise.

    Not sure if that phrase carries the prestige that, “Yes, I have an Olive Garden Lifetime Pasta Pass.” ;)

    Costco is the best, even for just my GF and I. I buy a TON of shit there besides food. TV's, laptops, appliances, LED lightbulbs, Microfibers, Mobil 1 oil, office chairs, tires, my shed, fence lights, and on and on.. Great prices. Even better service. Based on my cashback rate, I spend $8k there a year on average.

    That's not how it works. That's just spending the equivalent to what you've already put into it. Making your money back is getting $50 - $60 in savings.
