After having various friends and family rave about it and also seen some references on here to various items I have eventually registered and have just returned from the first excursion....

Some cracking bargins and some stuff that was really not that great but have to say was pretty impressed with the place overall and some things like balancing from £8.40 a wheel and free nitrogen inflations for tyres seems a decent service for members.

Is it still for selected people or can commoners now join? My Dad used to have a card because he worked at a bakery (?) but he let it expire. I only used to tag along so I could buy pizza from the deli.

I find it near impossible to go in without buying something. I never realise how many things I need until I walk around there.

Check out the tray of Prawns for £18.00. It's a huge tray of the biggest Prawns you'll see away from Australia. They are lovely, a must for any BBQ.

Selected professions can join as individuals either that or you have to have a company.

I do a run to Costco a few times a year for things like laundry liquid, kitchen towels, shampoo, toothpaste, loo rolls etc.

These things only ever seem to go up in price, so if you have the space to store the stuff it makes sense to buy now.

I joined last month and been a couple of times but don't really think it's for me. Great iff you have a family or need to buy in bulk, but I live on my own. I also work for one of the big 4 supermarkets so get a 10 - 20% discount off everything anyway. Might change my mind come summer as I can see me buing some big packs of meat for the BBQ

It's great as a lot of riff raff is kept out. Some still get in.

Balancing used to be £12 for 4 tyres. Then it shot up to £12 each. Then it went down to £6 each, then £4 each.

£20 plus VAT or £50 plus VAT for the Exec one which nets you 2% cash back.

Cheers, I may go & buy some pizza, and lots of stuff I don't really need, "but it's a bargain!" frown

Costco has taken soo much of my money of the years. Went yesterday and ended up walking out with a 2TB Network hard drive, Meat (their meat is so good) and Lorex Wireless security cameras for the garden and garage

how much :splutter: FROM £8.40 - so is that price just for little wheels or something? That's crazy expensive isn't it? My local guy charges £3 per wheel or nothing if you're buying tyres or puncture repair.
