Looks to me like it is a line they won't restock and the clearance price depends on how many they have left and how quickly they want to shift them. Will be monitoring the situation at our branch - i'd buy at £60.
Just rang Gateshead branch to make sure I wouldn't be wasting a journey detouring on my way home. They have anout 20 in stock and it is coming up as £119.98 inc VAT according to the stock checker lass I spoke to. Not much of a bargain there!
Costco Reading says its listed £60, do you think it's store specific?
Scorching hot - this is a £150 RRP bike that sells for £115-130 most places. Hopefully Gateshead branch has some, i'll be buying one tomorrow if they do.

No problem with 768p resolution on a 32" screen (unless using as a monitor), but in April 2017 for that spec, I'm not really seeing the deal as same item same price inc delivery via Tesco but do Costco-supplied TVs come with an inclusive enhanced warranty? Thanks.
Worst value for money I've seen in 5 years, sorry, cold.

Hot but they only do medium :(
Roger_Irrelevant
How does this compare to the Heinz? Which is £1 for 250ml at Morrison's at the moment.

While i do like the Heinz peri peri it is nowhere near as good as Nandos sauce. Heinz is sweet and tangy (both varieties) while this is just chilli. The medium is about the same amount of chilli as Heinz.
You can't beat classic Nandos peri peri sauce.
This is bigger than in Nando's restaurants

They look a lovely job op thank you.
Only concern 100g has the same amount of sugar as 4 bottles of punk IPA
Thanks for the info. I better slow down because I ate 4 handfuls very quickly because they are quite more-ish.
I picked up 4 packets, so they should last me awhile.
How much per bag& is it tax free, please? Yes, slow done, I had something similar with mixed nuts. They were very Morris's so sat watching the, handful after handful, till I actually looked at what I was eating & how much. I put the to one side. A bit later I got a rather painful tummy. Next thing I knew was I needed the toilet. Told a friend of mine who was a nurse. She told me it's a bit like eating prunes, it does make you go. So a nice word of warning. Not too many all in one go. But, when you enjoy something it is easier said than done!! They do look nice. I'll keep my eyes out for them. Thanks for sharing the news about then.

I slowed right down. I'm still on my 1st bag and it's still 2/3 full. So no extra toilet visits for me.
:D

What other superfruits are there?
From what I've seen Costco normally sell stuff like this for £8-£10, which is why I've always steered clear of them.
Anything can be a superfood/superfruit. It's a meaningless marketing term that has no scientific basis.
So even a Big Mac and fries?
Yep - somebody will be stupid enough to believe it.

I'm just not convinced at the moment with rolled up mattresses, or am I being a luddite?
Yes, you are lol. And these don't come rolled anyway.
I'm just not convinced at the moment with rolled up mattresses, or am I being a luddite?
Well mine is to be delivered a week on saturday by Panther who will call me with a 2 hour slot beforehand and confirm will take my old one away.

So lets see how this mattress is. I have never returned anything to Costco and been a member for now 15 years so if I dont like it I will see how good their CS is!
In their defence they said they had just had to fork out £800 for a mattress they had damaged by bending it up through an aperture that was too small, and with them making hardly any profit on the delivery it wasn't worth risking. We spent longer arguing about it than it would have taken them to get it up the stairs. The fact my old mattress died now makes sense (I bent it up through the narrow stairs when I bought the place). Thank the lord for mattresses that come rolled up! Now I need to just not sell the house for 25 years...

I have the one up from this too, it's OK but the buttons to rotate the camera or do anything are so loud and you can't turn the confirmation beep off the only thing is to turn the monitor down which is a pita.
I have the next model up from this. It's good sound and picture. the only downside is that you have to look directly at the monitor to see a clear picture unlike the BT one we had before that could be viewed at any angle.

Let's do some simple arithmetic...

One cup from this deal bag = 28.2grams (1 ounce exactly in old money; bet that's not a coincidence!)
One cup costs 20p

Asda do a bag of miniatures for £3 = 140grams = 5 cups
One cup costs 60p

Sorry 20p/mini cup is not good. Poundland has 4 full-size cups for £1 (= 25p/full cup).
It's a 56oz (1.58kg) bag which isn't too bad considering a 180g bag of mini's from a supermarket would be upwards of £2.50 - £3.00

Excellent deal. People voting cold so others don't see the deal so gives em chance to get to Costco and get one probably as definitely a hot deal.
Seems like a decent deal. Don't understand the cold votes (_;)

Yes, a few other offers that I was impressed with were: 12 x pot noodles for £5.89 ( after an in store "coupon" that they take off automatically), 1100 typhoo tea bags for £8.79, and 2x12pack branston beans for £6.19 (another coupon). There was also a boat load of cushelle toilet roll on a BOGOF but I didn't go for that one (think it may have been posted on here already). I did notice that the petrol was cheaper, I think it was about 5 or 6p a litre cheaper than Tesco. Go hungry cos they also have a really good value cafe in there :)
Thanks for the info. Heard from a friend the cafe was good and great value...... Might see you in there one day :p

Bargain price.... Any other decent offers in the Sheffield store?Just signed up last week so hopefully my Costco card should be here any day..... Might pop through anyway and just use the temporary one I got.. Apparently the fuel is cheap there as well isn't it? So I could fill the car up at the same time :D

You shouldnt base you calculation on per roll as thats totally inaccurate - per sheet is much better
Costcos own kirkland brand is great and often works out alot cheaper because you get 48 rolls each with ALOT more paper than other brands
Kirkland is 48 rolls @ 260 sheets per roll for approx £16, so approx £0.0013 per sheet
Cushelle is a pathetic 40 rolls @ 160 sheets per roll for £9.58, so approx £0.0015 per sheet
Kirkland ones are far better quality than cushell and andrex imo
So cheaper isnt always better. Cold
I was in today and the 48 pack had been replaced with a 40 pack. There is 240 sheets and they are embossed now. Is there definitely 260 sheets on the non-embossed version? Unfortunately I've forgotten the price so can't do comparison but it was definitely lower.

How do you become a Costco member, I have looked at their site but I'm still confused, anyone help?
I think your best bet is to go into a nearby warehouse, they'll walk you through everything you will need in order to be a member. I believe the cost is £25 per annum. Also, they sometimes offer incentives for joining, e.g. water bottles or something of that sort.
Normally have Cushelle via Makro but got told to try the Kirkland and the vote is Cushelle is better so I'll be calling next week.

Great price, i got a slightly bigger one from Costco a couple of years ago, they cannot be beaten for the price of Keter sheds when they run these offers. The shed itself is great, easy to put together and suprisingly solid, i just had to make a few little additions with bolts to secure sections but i dont think i really needed to, the only thing i would suggest is that you silicon the roof panels in place from the inside, or nonails as the wind does seem to push and pull at them and they do start to lift if you dont keep an eye on them

Does anyone have this as never heard of this one...


Not used this model but I have the much smaller Gaggia brera and absolutely love it. Used every day for the last 3 years and still going strong (else I'd get this offer!)


My Bosch machine is still going strong or I would have gone for it. I thought these normally retail nearer the £800 mark. The reviews I've read of them seem to suggest they are almost industrial quality.

What is wrong with a jar of coffee?


Nothing wrong with it. It's just like comparing a really nice single malt whisky to ASDA smart price whisky. Both have the same effect but one tastes better.
... nothing wrong, but coffee tastes better warm and brewed than in a jar, in my experience.

Think Glasgow ones always has the best deals,Trafford and Oldham ones pants.
An employee told me anything that ends in a 7 in price is end of line clearance. Fingers crossed it's in more stores although I know from experience that isn't always the case. Hopefully because it's a winter jacket any branch which still has stock will be wanting rid of it too.

I also looked at these and I agree, the quality isn't close to what you'd expect from Samsonite, but it's a good price nonetheless.
Great price! But we bought a similar Samsonite suitcase recently and the product quality has been disappointing (flimsy handle and wheels quite damaged after a single weekend trip).
Looked at these. To be honest I did not think that the quality was that great. The wheels are single and did not run smoothly when moving. Not sure how good they will be with weight.

Costco – Past and Present

CostcoCostco started off in Seattle, Washington, in 1983 and in 1993, merged with Price Club, the first retail warehouse club to form PriceCostco. In 1997, the enterprise changed its name to the Costco Wholesale Corporation.

Costco's mission is to offer brand name goods at discount prices to small and medium sized businesses, as well as individuals, through a membership model. The organisation currently has almost 700 warehouses around the globe in Canada, Mexico, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, and Spain, as well as the UK and its home country of the United States. Costco currently has 84 million cardholders around the world.

Costco: Storefinder and Online Shop

Costco merchandises its goods via a chain of more than 25 warehouses around the UK and at its online store at www.costco.co.uk. Only members can shop at warehouses. Anyone can buy online but non-members have to pay a surcharge of 5%.

Shoppers wishing to find physical warehouses can find an up-to-date list on their website. Choose a location from a drop down list or enter your postcode and specify the maximum distance in miles that you wish the store to be within (25-100 miles).

Owing to delivery and handling charges, the prices of items sold online may differ from those sold at physical outlets. Moreover, not all of the items offered on the online store are available at local warehouses.

Costco local store

Opening hours at Costco warehouses vary between branches and are longer for trade customers than for individual customers. As a rule, business hours are 10:00 to 20:30 for trade customers, and 12:00 to 20:30 for individual shoppers from Monday to Friday, with shorter hours on the weekends.
