Hi,

I've posted this deal for:
a) members who don't receive the offer booklet through the post
b) people who may consider signing up

Yes there is a yearly fee, information here http://www.costco.co.uk/membership/

As always some deals are very good, some are not as good. I personally find that the £30 a year for my membership is worth it as I buy a lot in bulk when good offers come along. I also buy all my meat from there as well as its fantastic quality.
Im definitely buying the folowing:
Plenty, Finish, Velvet, Buxton Water and Stella Cidre

Thanks

I'm curious Canada16. I live in Southampton and a massive Costco is being built next to where I work. Are the savings really worth it? Do you have any examples?

Doh! The pictures have just been posted lol

Had my last eye test done there for free as well as for my mum and you also get to keep the prescription, am due another soon, will book an appointment, got a friend a Panasonic 50" 3D from there for just 599. Well worth it in my opinion..

Yes, everytime I go there there is free food and beer and jack daniels.. LOL

But serious they have a lot of american food which is very cheap, like skippy peanut butter and hershey stuff.
Also the fruit and veg and bread is very cheap, and the tv's are very good with a 90 day no quibble refund and 5 year warrnaty.
You can go in as a guest and not buy anything and have a gander.

You need to work in the financial area, civil service, own your own comp.

If you work for a bank or insurance anything like that, or you can get someone who does, and pay halfs for a membership and they can add you.

I would not be without my card.

I don't actually think the prices are that cheap. Sure you do get some good deals that are bargains, but generally you are buying into high quality and a customer service better than anything I know of in the UK. They simple don't quibble. How many shops do you know of that you can buy a TV set on trial for three months and then take it back and say "nah don't like it" for a refund?

I can think of lots of reasons to avoid....... You spend a fortune on every visit! LOL

heat added lots to get , will give my sister in law my list lol

You have to pick and choose carefully what you buy in there. It's not that cheap and I'd say 70% of stuff is cheaper in supermarkets. Something like chocolate is never cheap - a 48 box of Wispas is something like £18 when it would cost you £12 to buy that many when they're frequently on offer at £1 for a 4 pack. Even things like tea and coffee which people bulk buy for work aren't that cheap - we bought PG Tips once in the massive bag (over 1000 teabags I think) and then found the next day it would have been cheaper to buy them in Asda because there was an offer on boxes of 240 for £2 - we overpaid in Costco by about £5.

The meat is good, but make sure you have room in the freezer. That's the only drawback we find - the size of some of the fresh food packets. Bakery stuff is good but always has really short shelf life. It's all very well that you can buy 18 crumpets for £1.50 but not when you have to eat them in 2 days. We end up not buying a lot of stuff with the simple reason "we'll never get through it all".

Agreed, everytime I go to Costco its a minimum spend of £££s. Always question its saving, but would never be without my membership.

Thanks op really useful not having to get the booklet instore

I noticed the other day that they've done a deal with American Express I think, so if you have an Amex card you can get membership (still have to pay though). I think now you can also pay by Amex now and get money back with the right card.

More Hot Heat for your effort, well done, keep it coming please;-)

Oh yes, that's the other thing, you can't pay by credit card, which is sometimes a pain!

The 5-year warranty in a TV is not like the one at John Lewis.

You have to remain a member for 5 years.

So if you're joining to buy a TV with a 5-year warranty, it's going to cost you £150.

agreed, i wasnt sure it would be worth it at first a few years ago as it felt like "just another makro" - but whilst makro have stayed the same/gone downhill, costco have improved the products and prices and their returns policy is 2nd to none - better than John Lewis, Amazon, etc

i took a philips dental floss battery item back that failed after 6 months - got a full refund, no battle, no stress (you hear that Tesco, Toys r us, makro!!)

i have the executive membership as i bought loads of cameras, etc cheap last year and the 3% cashback means im in profit over the extra cost of the card - tho next year ill likely go for the standard trade card again

some deals are excellent - better than online - now they have fresh food too which is fine

I was there last week and they had these gigantic teddy bears for £20 - fantastic watching grown adults grabbing and carrying them through the store.

Heat added for the effort BTW.

Haha, yes, I saw those. I did think that was cheap considering the size of them.

Thanks for these posts

Definitely the best money spent annually although I do have to discipline myself when in there! Never have the tasters, but once I was in there and they had Stilton, love the stuff so went for it. Went down wrong way and spent my time there coughing like a good 'un.
#33
You'll easily make your money back.

The only thing to consider is that you generally have to buy in bulk so you need plenty of space. Or a large family that'll eat\use stuff quickly.

We tried Costco a couple of years ago and were deeply unimpressed. There's a few good things in among a lot of stuff that's cheaper in the supermarket.

A case of San pellegrino Blood Orange sounds amazing! Will pick a couple up :)

I used to find stuff cheap there but not anymore, they used to do 6 pack of JW tuna for £4, now nearly double that which is the same as a supermarket offer. Their satsumas (the boxes from Spain) are nice, and their wholemeal pitta breads, sliced breads.

The best thing about ours are the custom cakes you can order - they're huge and they'll put designs on etc. and they cost about £8. Very tasty and done within a couple of days.

Also totally agree about the space thing, first few times we went we didn't have space to put anything away.

However, I'm not renewing this year, haven't been for months.

I have been a Costco member for 14 years now , first joined in USA before they came to the UK. Yes you have to watch what you buy and Yes supermarket special offers will often beat their food prices. However the majority of my spend is in non food items, they are good value and some are not available elsewhere. Their own brand Kirkland are quality products. Most furniture is supurb value and quality made. The other great reason for using them is their no quible refund even after the items has been used for some time. Also had my money refunded for some steak that was not up to their usual standard although it was eaten - refund was given. Their cafe is good value as well Large Jacket pots with generous fillings for £1.25.

They accept ANY American Express cards, not just the Costco ones.

I use my BA American Express card there all the time
