Costco questions

Well, Sam's Club has picketers out front because they want to bring in non-union plumbers and electricians to build their newest Sam's club and Walmart...

(a big no-no in a huge union-state).

So we are looking at Costco...but I have some questions.


1) How do the prices compare to Sam's Club? Are they more or less or even keel?

2) I have a book that I got in the mail that has a boatload of coupons in it for Costco. On the rear of each coupon it says "manufacturer's coupon". Does this indicate that Costco will accept Mfg coupons?

3) Does anyone know if Costco is a union company?


thanks.

The prices are pretty close to each other. But I believe Sam's is cheaper to get a membership, at least here it is. It costs $50 at Costco and it was only $40-$45 at Sam's I believe. Costco does not take coupons other then the ones they put out. Their reasoning is that their prices are already low. Don't know about the union thing though sorry.

They do seem to carry a bit of different stuff sometimes too. Mom has a sams club membership and mother in law has costco so I shop both

Costco's gas is cheaper most of the time. Not cheap enough to buy a membership for that sole reason though. I didn't know they were union but I know they pay their employees better then Sam's (well now that wouldn't be hard would it?). The thing about warehouse stores is it is so easy to go in and drop $500+ on all kinds of stuff @ one time. The do not accept coupons other than the ones they put out.

on this coupon booklet that I have, it says you pay $50 for annual membership, but you get a $10 gift card in return. I guess for the first year, that's not a bad incentive...plus all these coupons--some of which I will never use.

You think anyone would want the ones I won't use? Maybe I will raok them or something.
