Guess I don't follow your logic about fulltimers and Costco? I tend to prefer Sams club but think they are about the same concept. Just one personal story concerning Costco. About 8 years ago my son-in-law purchased a DLP flat screen for us. DLP was a good set, but very outdated when it died in 2013. I remembered that Costco offered a lifetime replacement on TV's and after a call to my son-in-law to verify the coverage I loaded the dead TV in the truck on our next visit north. After signing a couple forms they let me choose a replacement without regard to the price, just had to be similar in size. The 46" LED smart tv had a Costco price that was 60% more than what we paid for the DLP but an even exchange was made. Costco no longer offers the lifetime coverage but signed me up for a 5 year extended warrantee again totally free of charge. PS: I'm not a Costco member and the membership we used was my SIL's dad's account.
My point is there are a lot of things like electronics, outdoor accessories, and household items where you can get great deals at Costco. For the minimal cost of a membership, the marriage of fulltimers and Costco seems to make sense for a lot of people.
