I never liked Sam's Club or Wal-Mart. I had a Sam's Club membership at least 10 years ago but never really used it because I just didn't like going in there! Costco opened here earlier this year and I went in to check it out first. They did allow that here--for you to check it out first before signing up. I liked what I saw--and because I'm a single person--no kids either, I felt that I could make the membership worth my while. My only disappointment is that they don't always have the brands that I buy. When they do it's great! But my biggest welcome suprised, and to me alone is worth the cost of the membership, is the car insurance!!! OMG--I saved SO much!! I I didn't even know about it when I first signed up-it was during a later trip that I picked up some of their brochures and called to get a quote. I was shocked! So think about that if nothing else and for those of you who already have a membership, check it out!! They also offer health insurance or some states--unfortunately, no in my state.
I will be renewing my membership!
