costco store-frustrations

The first time I went to Costco last May I was really excited.  After all they had great deals on some of the “Real Food” items that I had been buying from Amazon for a much higher prices.   In fact the savings for the items I had purchased was $67.60 over Amazon items or 44% savings.  To me that made the Costco membership very worthwhile.

costco favorite

Well, the last few times I have gone the items on the grain aisle that I was just loving have disappeared.   The items I sorely miss at Costco are:

  • Earthly Choice Black Rice 4 lb bag for $6.99
  • Earthly Choice Freekeh 4 lb bag  for $8.79
  • Hemp Hearts 28 oz for $9.97.  This item just disappeared in the last couple weeks right after they did a demo on it.  Sort of strange in my opinion to take something away after promoting it.  Maybe they are just low on stock.  Either way I’m bummed it’s gone.

Today when I went to Costco I checked the aisle once again and those items still weren’t there.  The only “real food” item I picked up was the Chia Seeds that they still do carry.  Apparently they aren’t at my mom’s Costco either which in a different state.  While I’m disappointed that my favorite and biggest money saver items are no longer carried at Costco, one of my biggest frustrations arose at checkout.

My Frustration at Check-Out

I had all 5 kids with me in the store.  The lady who sells the Executive Gold Membership came up to me.  She said with so many kids you must spend a lot here and I’m sure that this plan would help you save.  Sort of a big assumption on her part considering I only had 4 items in my cart.  I told her that no I really don’t buy a lot, especially since you stopped carrying some of my favorite items. 

Instead of inquiring further and asking what items those were, she just said, “Oh Sorry.”  I would have thought if they valued my membership – or really wanted to sell me the more expensive option, they would have at least tried to show interest, and say they would look into it.  Talk about Frustration.

Why I Probably Won’t Renew my Costco Membership

Between that kind of Customer Service and no longer carrying items I really appreciate and help me save, I am seriously considering not renewing my subscription come April.  While there are some items that they still do carry at Costco I like – such as Organic Spinach, Coconut Oil, Chia Seeds, K-cups, and Maple Syrup I don’t think those items will warrant the $55 membership.

Especially since the majority of those items I can get at Sam’s Club for the same price or just pennies more.  Here are some examples:

  • Maple Syrup is $11.99 at Costco and $12.49 at Sam’s Club
  • Organic Spinach is the same price at both store
  • Coffee K-Cups are 34 cents each at Costco and 37 cents at Sam’s Club

Why I Will be Shopping at Sam’s Club

You may wonder why I’m choosing Sam’’s Club since the prices are higher at Sam’s on these items.  It’s because I find many other deals at Sam’s Club I love, especially clothes where I often get dresses for $6.81 and shirts for $4.81.  I’ve never found such great clothes deals at Costco.

In addition, they are carrying many more fresh organic produce.

So have you found some of your favorite items disappearing from Costco?

snap by groupon

Are you still waiting on receipts to be processed by Snap by Groupon – especially in regards to Huggies, Pepperidge Farm or Barilla?

As of yesterday, I still hadn’t received processing notification for my Snap Cash backs a transaction on October 3rd that included Pepperidge Farms, Huggies Diapers and Barilla Sauce. 

I was getting a bit frustrated because this was over $19 worth of Cashback and they had approved a couple smaller receipts that I had submitted much more recently.  After all they suggest it will take 48 hours to process, not 3 weeks.

So I decided it was time to contact them.  On the app on my SmartPhone I clicked on Contact Us and then chose Customer Service. I simply asked why I hadn’t heard anything on this receipt and it was still showing as pending.  I also mentioned what items it was in regards to.

Lookie, lookie what came in my in-box today.  There wasn’t any direct reply to my contact question, but I will definitely take this.


So if you’re still waiting, go ahead and contact them and hopefully your receipt will be processed as quickly.

I was planning a trip to Aldis today and knowing that there is a Goodwill next door, I decided to pack up a bag of clothes I have been meaning to give away for awhile.  In fact this pile has been messing up my bedroom floor.  In addition to that pile, I quickly went through several other drawers and pulled out items I hadn’t worn in ages.

While packing the bag, I came up with a new cutting clutter resolution for myself.  Evertime I go to Aldis (which is about every 2 to 3 weeks), I’m going to take at least one bag of what’s become clutter to us, but useful for others, to the Goodwill.  With 7 of us in the house, this definitely won’t be hard to do.

I thought I was alone in having an Aldis right next to my Goodwill, but when I went to google to find pictures, I found that this is actually pretty common.  It makes sense since both Goodwill and Aldi appeal to frugal shoppers.

So what about you?  Is your Aldis near a Goodwill?  Would you like to join me in the Cutter Cutting Resolution or do you have another great way to Cut the Clutter?
