my experience with costco has been very good. bought a ski lift package for local ski hill from them for my parents. but my mom broke her ankle and couldn't use the card before it expired (some people have no luck). i took the card back to costco 3 months later, with receipt, and they returned the cash no questions asked.

PRO:
Unique items of high quality. It's always a pleasant surprise to shop at costco.

CON:
long line ups.
electronic equipment is always last years model (which is usually OK for me)

Used the Costco web site back in August to schedule the replacement of two garage doors including new openers. They were quick to book a visit of our house and show the options. We were already set from their brochure so it didn't take long. When the contractor came to do the work, it was done really well except that they were out of the weather stripping for the color we chose. They said they'd return the next week. The next week came and they were a no show. Phone calls went unanswered. We called Costco to complain and they reacted swiftly. They got on the contractor's case very quickly and they came the next day to finish the job (they bought the weather stripping from another supplier at a higher price and it was their expense).

So far, very satisfied.

Costco jumbo shrimp
Last week my son brought over a large package of Kirkland cooked shrimp that came with two lemon slices and a fair sized tub of zesty seafood sauce. I've never had shrimp this good as they were both sweet and tasty! I believe they were the Pacific White variety which is quickly replacing the Giant Tiger shrimp in Asian and Latin American shrimp farms. The thing that really puzzled me is: Not one of the shrimp had to be de-veined! The tails were completely intact and there was no evidence that the sand vein (a polite term for its digestive tract that often contains black excrement that gives the shrimp a nasty taste if not removed) was scraped out!
I asked my son did he know why de-veining wasn't necessary and he said that he read that when they harvest the shrimp, they feed them cornmeal for a couple of days to get rid of the poop. I thought that maybe they didn't feed them for a few days so that their digestive track would eventually clear itself. Who knows?
