RE: Costco....So where are my WHOLESALE prices?
Costco, like everything in this life isn't for everybody. If you are looking for 1 oz of cold-cuts, you are in wrong place. Some of my friends avoid the Costco, because when they go in and see the vine, that sells for $30 and they paid $79 somewhere else, they always load $700 of stuff.
Don't think you can buy Michelins anywhere cheaper. Especially with occasional $50 coupon.
Than who else offers tire mounting, lifetime balancing, roadhazrd insurance and disposal of old tire for $12 (2 years ago, don't know if it changed). They toueqe the wheels, according to the printout on your statement and fill it up with funny gas [:o)][:o)]
If you are comparing other places sale prices and Costco fixed prices, you might find better sale, but you have to look for it, when going to Costco you can load up, with knowledge that you are not overpaying by 100 %.
Doing monthly shopping at Costco I am happy leaving less, than $250, but that gives us base for a month.
OH, the $1.50 hot-dogs with bottomless soda. [:p]
