With the likes of lidl/aldi (food/toiletries)....b&m/home bargains (drinks/branded discount)... Amazon /AO(household goods incl electronics)...etc is Costco even worth it?
I recently signed up for an 'Individual Membership', total cost inc. VAT was £33.60...
This offer is nice and the freebies are a nice touch. £28 is a good price, however as hashman previously commented... it's not necessarily worth it.

If you've got a business (or buy for a business) then it might be worth it to buy large quantities.
However for casual shoppers like me you'll just end up with too much of one thing, unless you have a large family.

The one thing I really shop there for is Kirkland signature bottled spring water, 48 bottles for just over £3. Worth it for £33.60 a year? No... but I had to try it.

Many Costco sites now include a petrol station, which is usually the cheapest fuel in the area. So maybe?

If you have one nearby with a fuel court I'd say it's worth it due to their low petrol/diesel prices.
Some of their special offers are good value, and I'd say their clothing is pretty good quality.

I wouldn't get a membership purely on regular food prices though, personally.

I have membership - definitely not worth it for their regular prices on most things (a few things are cheap; bottled water and water softener tablets, plus a few things the kids love that you don't find elsewhere).

What can be worthwhile is their leaflet deals on things like Andrex from today - typically we stock up on those types of things, plus kids birthday cakes and massive packs of stuff if you're entertaining.

Wines can be cheap sometimes (Campo Viejo Gran Reserva for example from time to time).

No fililng stations in London - area unfortunately.

It's £27 now, including VAT. Ours is up for renewal but contemplating if its really worth it. They did give us £10 online voucher though for renewing!
I thought Costco opened up their membership requirements so practically anyone can apply?

Doubt I can use this anyway as it's for new customers. Heat though as Costco is great.
Agree with previous posters, Petrol Station is a winner, pity they havant built one at Watford yet. I used to enjoy stocking up at Costco but agree again with previous posters times have changed, Amazon and all manner of delivery services for food have made it less appealing. I reckon eventually Amazon or another big player will acquire Costco and use them as local distribution centres.

Exactly - have you heard of them planning one there as you say 'yet'? They have the space and it's their HQ!

It the only shop where kids don't kick up a fuss actually - I don't mind shopping there with them as they are on the lookout for tasting the foods!

We did well picking up the Roald Dahl box set for under a tenner a few months ago, and Lego advent calendars the other day.

It's the trade membership. We received a letter from Costco about renewing our membership on 1st Oct along with a £10 online spend voucher. Yet to renew.
If you are just ordering product online, you don't need to be a member, just pay the 5% non member surcharge or pay £15 including VAT for 12 months online ordering.

Dunno how close you are to lakeside but they have a petrol station there. I tend to go down just too fill up my car quite a drive from east London but worth it as I can get my other bits and bobs. Tottenham is my closer one but no petrol station so I rarely head that way and I don't think they have the space to make one there either.
It's worth it for the Hot Dogs lol
Bit random the freebies though....Roast Chicken....Fudge Cake & Batteries lol
Great deal, but well annoyed with the Groupon RRP £72.31 price.... Have they added the cost of how much the Rotisserie Chicken, Batteries and Cake would be if sold separately?
Worth it just for the bog roll @ about 43p per roll (and before anyone says you can get cheaper, these are 240 sheets per roll). 41p in Asda (on offer), but only for 180-200 per roll.

Rotisserie chickens are exceptional value too.... and as long as you don't live in the South (except near Bristol/Thurrock) saving 6p per litre on fuel also pays for itself.

..and you get WW membership - useful if you're going to the US.

Check if your work has costco membership,the wife is £14 a year through her work.
Their own brand food is very good. The only problem is that it's huge portions
I used to have membership purley for the birthday cakes..they taste yum yum large cke for 13..better then paying 20+..
Any1 know if i can join again dnt work though.
Milk, bread, washing powder, water bottles are all very good prices at Costco as are the personalised cakes

and me and my daughter love the food tasting :-)

I did have membership until august , if I use this deal could I get away with being a new member rather than renewal?
For those wondering, Costco currently see fuel at the following locations:-

Birmingham
Bristol
Chester
Derby
Gateshead
Haydock
Liverpool
Manchester
Oldham
Sheffield
Thurrock

Next fuel station to open is Edinburgh, but it's not yet listed on Costco's website

Thanks, appreciate the thought - NW London to Lakeside isn't worth my time I'm afraid.

Ooh I didn't know about the WeightWatchers membership - worth it just for the stuff we buy from this place
I have been a Costco member for many years and the deal is good but costco is not for everyone. The offers every month are sometimes very good and the price of toilet rolls, kitchen rolls and kleenex when on offer, as currently can't easily be beaten on price. I like others live close to Lakeside and so get the cheap fuel. The birthday cakes are excellent value. Another thing you can use your card in overseas Costco which comes in useful when we visit the U.S.A. . As with non food items if you check prices on your phone when there with Amazon I would say the majority of the time Costco is cheaper and Costco returns policy is very good. Some of the regular food items are similar prices to elsewhere and so it is not the place if just food shopping is what you go for.
Which is better - Costco or makro
It it defenitelly worth it even a a full price:
Toilet rolls
Frozen chicken
Engine oil
Spices
Potatoes
Eggs
Paper towels
Coffee
Car shampoo

Just from the top of my head products cheaper or occasionally cheaper at Costco comparing to other supermarkets. Not mentioning excellent quality of their meat

Costco is absolutely worth it for me. It's not just about food, they sell just about anything. Some of the stuff is just not available anywhere else and Kirkland and own brand stuff is good quality. Be selective what you buy and save a fortune.

Not only that, but the trick is to get a group of maybe 4 families to contribute to a membership and one person joins everyone else goes along as a guest. Membership costs just a few quid then.
Looks tempting but not live yet on Groupon
Your satisfaction is guaranteed so if you get a membership and decide it’s not been worth it in 11 months time you can get a refund of membership fee. Not sure how this works with the groupon deal.
Has this sold out?
Not working, not yet available
I've been an individual member of Costco for quite a few years now and found them very useful with savings on certain items as others mentioned above.

I upgraded to the Executive Membership which gives 2% back on purchases (you get a Costco cheque for the cashback amount once each year). It might be worth considering this upgrade IF you will spend over £2000 per year with them - as it has an additional cost (e.g. individual member: ordinary = £28+VAT = £33.60; executive = £62+VAT = £74.40 = £40.80 inv VAT extra per year).

My son has an additional card and as he is currently in the US, he can use it there without any problems.

Aside from the return policy and the savings on specific items that others have mentioned in previous posts, I find the meat and fish at Costco very good - not the cheapest but much better quality than you get in most supermarkets.
I renewed over the weekend and in the £10 off voucher code was included in the renewal letter.
