I recently got a membership and I've heard great things about their food, but nothing specific outside of the steaks. I got one of their raw pizzas and it wasn't bad, much better than frozen pizza and delivery, but not quite up to par compared to the real thing. I also bought some steaks and cheeses but haven't gotten into those yet. What else should I keep an eye out for?

If they carry them, pick up one of the take and bake deep dish pizzas. That, Dino Nuggets, and over-sized stuffed animals comprise my regular list. Gatorade G2 and chocolate milk when I'm running low.

me and my gf go there often just for the food you get at the food court area. not only is it dirt cheap but it taste as good or better than any pizza you can get at most places. and a hot dog and soda with free refill for a buck twenty five you can beat that.

but yes the rest of costcos food is awesome. would recommend the mac n cheese as well as the salmon and asian noodle salad.

Hot dog combo. Deal of the century.


Their packaged hot dogs that you prepare yourself at home are damn good too.

Chicken. Fish.
All their meat seems good actually. Usually.

They used to have a lifetime warranty on electronics. Meaning new tv every few years. Not anymore

It's the same down here. I wish they could sell liquor here too because I've read great things about their whiskies depending on the year.

At the warehouse stores like Costco I pick up steaks/pork in the "bulk" packs and have the butcher cut them to my specifications. I generally save $1-3/lb buying them that way then take them home and freeze them in vacuum sealed bags.

Household items such as detergent/paper towels and hygiene products including toothpaste, deodorant etc are also generally quite a bit cheaper buying them in bulk. Pretty much anything that you can store in bulk but doesn't go bad I like to pick up in bulk as long as it saves money doing so.

Keep in mind that Cutting "steals/pork" into vacuum sealed bags does not change the period of time you can freeze it, before it will go bad. I do not recall the time period for each type of food based on freezer temperature, but if your freezer is keep above 0 or 5 degrees F, the period of time meat can be kept starts to shorten. Just do not recall if it is 2 or 3 months--or maybe a little longer.

Steaks and chicken at -5 stay good for more up to 12 months (depending on the cut/type). I use this chart as a guide for storage of food http://www.foodsafety.gov/keep/charts/storagetimes.html
