Varför bli Costco-medlem?

Jag älskar absolut Costco -- jag har varit medlem de senaste 23 åren. Jag handlar mycket av mitt hushåll där. Det är min favoritbutik för hushållspapper, soppåsar, tvättmedel och alla andra hushållsartiklar som jag inte vill köpa regelbundet i en stormarknad. Det är också där jag fyller på matvaror som mjölk, kaffe och ägg (de är mycket billigare på Costco än i min lokala stormarknad). Costco är ett bra ställe att fylla på med vin också. Jag rekommenderar lådvin av märket Kirkland Signature -- det är den perfekta kombinationen av hög kvalitet och lågt pris.

Jag ser också till att hämta en rotisseriekyckling på $4,99 när jag är på Costco. Det är en fantastisk middagsförrätt, med mycket över för att göra smörgåsar eller kycklingsallad nästa dag. Och priset går inte att slå - du kommer att betala mycket mer för att köpa en hel kyckling att steka hemma.

Costco är ett bra ställe att hitta hushållsartiklar - tänk möbler, små apparater, sängkläder och mer. Costco erbjuder också en utökad garanti på elektronik utan extra kostnad, och har en mycket vänligare returpolicy än Best Buy och andra återförsäljare.

När jag behöver bensin stannar jag vid stationen i anslutning till min lokala lagerbutik. Priset där är vanligtvis 15-40 cent lägre per gallon än närliggande stationer. (Bli inte avskräckt av långa köer – de flesta Costco-bensinstationer har fler pumpar än din genomsnittliga bensinstation. Köderna går snabbt.)

Och, så klart, varje gång jag besöker Costco stannar jag till vid kaféet i butiken. Det är svårt att gå fel med 1,50 $ varmkorv och dryck combo om du är hungrig, men min favorit sommargodis är 2,99 $ fruktsmoothie. Den är gjord med bitar av äkta frukt (jordgubb, björnbär och acai) utan tillsatt socker. Prova nästa gång du besöker det. Och håll utkik efter den nya spettkyckling Caesar-salladen, det senaste tillskottet till Costcos food court.

Min rekommendation: Uppgradera till ett Costco Executive-medlemskap

Costco sommarkampanj: Få ett $30 Costco Shop Card när du registrerar dig för ett nytt medlemskap denna Memorial Day (3)

Om du vill ta dina Costco-besparingar till nästa nivå rekommenderar jag att du uppgraderar till ett Costco Executive-medlemskap. Det kostar 60 USD extra per år jämfört med ett standardmedlemskap, men du börjar få 2 % rabatt på dina årliga Costco-köp, inklusive semester köpta via Costco Travel. Den årliga belöningen på 2 % skickas med ditt meddelande om förnyelse, två månader före förnyelsedatumet.

Om du gör dina vanliga hushållsinköp på Costco kommer Executive-uppgraderingen att betala för sig själv. Du måste spendera $3 000 på Costco per år för att nå noll. (Tro mig, dessa Costco-resor går snabbt ihop!)

Costco Executive-medlemskap med $30 Costco Shop Card, $120 (ett värde på $150)
Viktigt: Se till att ange koden SUMMER23 i kassan.
