Costco memberships

I have a membership to Costco too before people think I'm hating but find it funny how many fulltimers have memberships. Seems a bad combination to me. Lol. Anyways. On my way to Costco to pick up a mattress topper!

Not if you have a business membership and their AMEX CC with 4% cash back on fuel. That check always looks mighty nice every year.

No, any fuel purchases. You just have to cash the check at COSTCO , no purchase needed, they just cash the check.

And be sure to separate fuel from any other purchase. $100 in fuel and $1 for the water cuts the cashback to something much lower. I fuel a lot and the Costco associated AE rebate is nice to get.

If you wear glasses, the membership more than pays for itself in exam and eye glass savings.

Hello, my name is Brian and I'm a Costco addict

Yep, pay at the pump and then buy the water.

We don't use Costco because we don't like how they package things.

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 DLP was a good set, but very outdated when it died in 2013.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.

They do at some stations, but in limited areas. There was a rumor floating that they were going to add it to all stations, so we'll see.
