Proud to be a member

"I know Jim Senegal is the "former" CEO, but I sincerely hope that Costco continues to operate under the values of this man. He made a great impression on me with his speech at the 2012 DNC. I'm not a big fan of the way corporations are using Americans right now. Senegal made me feel more comfortable about spending my hard earned dollars with your company. I've got my eye on you. . . . It matters!"

Fantastic customer service

"I recently purchased gas in NW Indiana. This is where BP had to recall the gasoline they had shipped. I unfortunately purchased some of the bad gasoline. We had to take our car in to have the fuel lines drained and cleaned to get the car working properly, this meant leaving the car and getting a rental. When we got the bill we took it to Costco and asked for a refund for our expenses, (over four hundred dollars). The request was handled promptly and cheerfully-no problems. We received our refund and a gift card to Costco for our inconvenience within 2 weeks. I am thrilled with the support provided to us, and am thankful to Costco."

Outstanding place to shop

"I have been a Costco member for years and have always been appreciative of the outstanding customer service, the variety of products and the quality of the merchandise - not to mention great prices. Never had a problem with any returns or exchanges, employees are always friendly and helpful. Keep up the great work."

Best Buy for Most Things

"I've been a COSTCO member for many years and will remain one. I buy all my paper goods (tp, paper towels etc) here & Consumer Reports has rated their tp a "Best Buy". I always buy my gas here it's usually 10 cents a gal cheaper than anywhere else. I also love their selection of children's books and the meat is always fresh. I also love online ordering & mail delivery of bulky things. The sales associates are wonderful! Parking is a hassle though - I need handicapped parking and there just aren't enough spaces. I must agree - prices are going up so do your homework."

Didn't really want this membership...

Pros: good for non-perishables
Cons: not a 1-stop store., many items are cheaper elsewhere.
"...but hubby wanted to make a major purchase and it made more sense to get it...just for this year! Well, I just renewed my Executive membership.
The quality of Kirkland products is superb! I will not buy paper towels, garbage bags or dish soap anywhere else. I was a brand snob until I tried Kirkland!
The $110 Executive membership fee is well worth it and the rebate that I got paid for the executive upgrade. Call me a happy member!"

The stor ewith a heart

Pros: good prices, great customer service, best gas prices in town
"My family and I have been a Costco memebr since it was Price Club. They have great prices, lots of items, Costco carries a good deal on Disney tickets & stuff. The Sees candy is a good deal. But I really love about Costco is that they treat thier employees great. The CEO makes a small amount compared to his position at 300,000. He visits that stores and has people call him by his first name. They give a lot to childrens hospital. I would much rather give my money to a company like Costco, knowing that my money goes to the empoyees, and to children in need. Also, if you have a problem, yo0u know you are a valued customer."

Best customer service!

Pros: no worries at all.
Cons: to long cashier lines
"No doubt, Costco has the best customer service.
Days ago I buy a video camera, use it for 2 months, not satisfied with the functions of the camera. Package, I went to Costco and without any problem ... I got my money.
Definitely the best place to shop without worries is Costco.
thanks.

Incredible Return Policy

"If I buy ANY item that could possibly have a problem down the road, I get it at Costco. I hate returning things, but the satisfaction guarantee that Costco provides is invaluable. Even if I can get it cheaper elsewhere, I get it at Costco, because that reassurance takes the stress out of a higher ticket purchase. And let's face it, where can you return a camera or computer after purchase? If it has a problem, you have to go through dealing with the vendor, send it away, whatever. With Costco, just pack it up and take it back if it is within the 90 days. You can return items other than electronics after 90 days."

You won't be disappointed

"Prices are OK if you need larger quantity products.
However, customer service is excellent.
They go the extra mile to keep you a satisfied customer. Also, the warehouse is pleasant to walk and shop in the wide aisles. Most of the time it is clean, and the products are organised.

Thank you

"I have been consistently pleased with the purchases I've made at CostCo. The quality of their meats, seafood and produce have always been above good (at my local CostCo anyway). Totally worth the cost of the membership, which I continue to renew for myself, my husband and my daughter (though she lives almost 5 hours away!). Thank you CostCo!"

"Buy it at Costco" I tell them

Pros: price quality return policy
Cons: no customer service on the floor.
"Everytime I want to buy something big or a little bit risky, I buy it at Costco. The quality is always something I can count on, and if I have a problem with it, they ALWAYS take it back---NO MATTER WHAT! They get most of my big purchases, and yes, some I take back, but I don't risk it anywhere else. I can take things back after a year, without the packaging or whatever. When people complain to me about a $300 grill they bought 6 months ago that doesn't work or a product whose customer service department won't refund after 30 days, I tell them "Buy it at Costco" next time and buy your big ticket items with confidence!"

NOT worth the money

Pros: best place to purchase your meat.
Cons: membership too expensive
"Cost of membership has been increasing consistently but the quality and saving on the products has not.
It used to be inexpensive to join and the deal were phenomenal and now it's expensive to join and the deal are mediocre"

Not worth the money

Pros: large quantity items
Cons: lots of time wasted, no really a bargain, poor customer service
"Pricing has become less competitive, service has dropped. Lines are long, takes up a lot of time. If you do not require large quantity items, then you will save huge amounts of time going elsewhere.
Not worth the member ship cost in savings."

Great store, but SUPER BUSY

Pros: wonderful products, super fast cashiers
Cons: way too busy and packed even on a weekday
"Rarely have I been to my Costco without it being packed. There are people EVERYWHERE and it's difficult to find a decent parking space. Trying to push a cart through this store is challenging and I have to dodge all the lines of people waiting for samples. The front end has cashiering down to a science though and rarely have I stood in line for more than 10 minutes. It would be WONDERFUL if a second store could be opened for our area."

If You Don't Have a Costco Membership, Get One!

"Where should I begin? Costco is the best place ever to shop for everything, especially household goods, and high-end watches and diamonds.
If you're on the fence about purchasing a membership, do it. You won't regret it. And, if by chance you do (regret it), you can always return your membership. So, either way - you can't go wrong!"
