Costco Is Outstanding
MATTHEWS, NORTH CAROLINA -- I have read several anti-Costo reviews and I think it is time for us satisfied Costco customers to speak up. Costco is simply the best retailer I've ever encountered, regardless of pricing. It offers ... read full review6 Replies - Latest reply on 02/15/2009
I couldn't decide if this should be a complaint or compliment because it is actually both; I erred on the side caution and went with a compliment because of the way it was ultimately handled.

PENNSYLVANIA -- I have a Cannon Pixma Inkjet printer with 6 ink cartridges. The print / photo quality is outstanding. With light usage I have to replace the ink about every four months. Amazon sells the new Cannon ink for $75.00. Internet search prices for after market ink was about $25.00. Very skeptical, didn't want to clog the print heads or worse.
Costco refilled the original Cannon cartridges with quality ink for $9.00 bucks each. They completely clean it first removing any old residual ink and seal it with a new tight cap. It's filled to maximum capacity, they don't cheat you on the ink. Because you're reusing the old cartridge with the factory chip there are no compatibility issues.
Conclusion: Costco offers a huge cost savings, the refilled cartridges worked flawlessly. The print and photo quality was as good as the more expensive ripoff manufacturer ink that they want you to buy. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

Costco's bakery has many delectable delights. My favorite is their strawberry cheese cake. It's huge, 5.50 lbs for $14.99. This is restaurant quality where they charge you $6.00 bucks for a small slice. Rich and creamy with a generous strawberry topping. Start your day off with a good cup of coffee (Keurig's Newman special blend K-Cup) and a slice of this mouth watering cheese cake and you're good to go. No I can't possibly eat the whole thing. I enjoy a few slices and give the rest away to family and neighbors who never turn it away. Treat yourself to this rich indulgence and you will be most happy.1 Replies - Latest reply on 07/02/2013Add reply
Costco really treats the customer right when it comes to returns. Best Buy and other retailers with a restrictive return policy need to take notice. Costco has no time limit for the return of general merchandise. If you're not happy or it fails just return it for a full refund. Their return policy on electronics (TV, camera, printer etc) is a very liberal 90 days.

Four months ago I purchased a heavy duty shop work bench from them for $399.00. They just put it on sale for $299.00. I went to customer service with the receipt and asked for a price reduction. Not a problem. My AMEX card was immediately credited with a $100.00 refund. At Costco you can shop with confidence knowing that you are getting the best price with a no hassle return policy.
I was a former employee seeking to be rehired, and the warehouse manager listened to my interest in returning to work. Scott was on his way to eat his lunch salad, and gave me his time. Thanks Add reply
I tried the Kirkland Oven Roasted Turkey Breast from Costco today for lunch. This is sliced turkey meat for sandwiches.

The ad I read said it is: "freshly carved from single turkey breasts - just as you would do the day after Thanksgiving."
This is great turkey - it smelled great, had great texture, was thick (about an eighth of an inch) and tasted just as you would want it to taste.
I was pleasantly surprised. Costco continues to impress me, especially with its Kirkland products.
I currently have a four year old Samsung 46 inch LCD HDTV that has been completely trouble free. Recently while shopping at Costco I was quite impressed with their wide selection of HD TV's, Blue Ray disc players and Wall Mounts. On display was the new Samsung LED 55 inch Smart TV. OMG the picture quality was jaw dropping. Built-in Wi-Fi, Skype, Apps and able to display full 3D movies, glasses included. It's only 1.2 inches thick with a frame-less boarder. Regular wholesale price was $2700, on sale that week for $2000. I checked Amazon pricing and they had the older model which did not include the 3D glasses for $1850. It was close.

Here's where Costco has them beat. When you buy any TV from Costco they automatically give you a second year warranty for free. Then you can purchase an in home zero deductible three year extended warranty for $100 bucks. I'm not done. Also included is their free tech service. They give you an 800 number to call that will assist you with any problem. This is service and treating the customer right. Are you listening Sears and BestBuy? The yearly membership cost is only $50 bucks, I definitely got my moneys worth.

DULUTH, GEORGIA -- I ordered eyes glasses on 6/4/10 and got them on 6/24/10, which were not
properly filled. I got the refund. Costco is neither cheap nor fast on delivery and in the mean time, if you need the prescription glasses made fast, there are lot of other places, who do a better job and at cheaper price. This was like a slow boat delivery, from where ever they get their prescriptions filled. I got them made at another bulk store
cheaper and faster with a lab on the premises. Costco is not always inexpensive on lot of items, if you check around. They need to close their Optical Deptt. or improve service.
BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA -- I always buy gas at Costco & on the few times I have had a problem the attendant took care of it. On 7/17/09 they had been working on pump 10 & just opened it as I pulled up, the pump would not read my card or my wife's card, I went to the attendant in his office he looked at my card & was told I had to go in the store & get a new one, after waiting in line for 15 min. in 105 heat & no service I feel the guy should be fired [snip - inappropriate].14 Replies - Latest reply on 07/19/2009Add reply
