This may be a silly one but as I work for the council I can join the above. I go once a month and spend roughly £200 on essentials like tins, pasta, cheese, bread which I find saves me a fortune on going to supermarkets. I can't get everything I want there (icecream for one) but only buying fruit and vegetables for the rest of the month with very little else I find we manage and at £50 per week for the 4 of us is good value.

 

If I don't need to spend that much on essentials we have a few treats which is lovely........... I bought a case of hobgoblin on offer for £10 this week and some chocolate. Last of the big spenders me.

 

It costs me £30 per year to join.

I joined as an individual member which is open to me as a local government officer. There must be other ways to qualify if people want to enquire. Except for weekends you have no access before 12:00pm presumably to allow trade people greater access to goods/checkouts.

Hiya, I joined Costco about a year ago. I am a director of a business but I did see a sign that if you work for local counsil, police, fire services, NHS etc you can apply to join.

 

Once you have joined you can add additional members onto your card as secondary holders. You can include anyone you like. I had to add my mother inlaw onto ours.

 

We do a monthly shop and the quality of the meat is much higher than Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury. Friendly and well trained staff.

 

As long as you are happy to have 50000000 toilet rolls at once, its a damm good bargain!

I've got how many sheets/rolls?????????????? No wonder it lasts almost 12 months then.

 

Have you ever tried one of their personally ordered cakes? Yes £13 for such a size seems very cheap but the QUALITY is superb. I have ordered 4 in the last year and can state that for freshness and general yummyness they can't be beaten.

 

Except for the supermarket christmas offers on Baileys etc I will be getting my christmas spirits there. They were selling boxes of Thorntons chocolate at roughtly half-price if I have got the right sizes. Only 3 weeks and I can go again. £6 for a large kilner jar of chocolate brazils............

 

Thanks for the info on who qualifies - I think you can have 2 additional cardholders.

Costco Rocks, I am a member through a friend who has his own business, this means that I can go in from opening times, can confirm that the meat is superior and cheaper, but know supermarket prices before you co and yes, the pizzas rock and the cakes are £10 for a HUGE one, and they are delicious!

And then there are the money-off vouchers which they post to you. It is a litre of Tia Maria for £10, stewing steak for £3 a pack, cadbuty drinking chocolate (1 litre) selling at 15% off - so only going to cost me £3.56. Quaker Oat so simple (twin pack) at £2.99 - going to stock up on those.

 

Going to do an on-line check but the brevill handblender VHB011 at £28.74 may be a good buy. Oooooohhhhhhhhhh and the smoked salmon/trout is pretty good too not to mention the sushi tray - havn't bought it yet but I promised my youngest it would go on our 'treats' list for christmas if not before.

 

What about the fancy breads - croissants, belgium buns, tear-and-share brioche. Oh well only 3 weeks before I get to go again.

 

I have always wanted to try Dom Perignon champagne and If I've got the name right they sell that at £17 a bottle (is that without vat I wonder) - it's normally £36 in supermarkets, so my treat for Christmas Day or for New Years Eve when I'm watching Jools Hollands Hooternanay (how do you spell it?).

 

Lulu - only £10 - did you hit the wrong number. They do keep though don't they - it took the 4 of us over a week to eat the last one - still don't understand how the sponge and cream stayed good BUT THEY DID.

Yeah - some things like coke and breakfast cereals etc when on offer in supermarkets can be dearer at Costco but overall I find them a lot cheaper so really surprised to hear you think that they are not worth considering. Hey-ho, each to their own.

I agree. I find MOST things are significantly cheaper if you're prepared to buy in bulk. Fruit & veg is an obvious one.

its not always the not prepared to buy in bulk its the where do i put it if i do buy in bulk.

I love Costco!...I find it especially great for houshold essentials such as washing powder, shampoo, dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls etc. Last month I got 180 finish tablets for £13.75 which is 7.63p per wash and will take me 6 months to get through! Also the quality of the meat is superb.

 

Does anyone know whats on offer this month in the coupon book?
