Sam's or Costco




VS.



Blogger has a fun new element called POLLS. So I decided to have one of my own. Ste and I are deciding on renewing our membership to Sam's Club. We had one there because it was so convenient to where we lived. But I'm wondering:

Where do you prefer?


Now I want to know if convenience had NOTHING to do with it. Do you like the brands they offer? or is it based on the yearly membership fee? does one just feel better than the other?

costco all the way! I like their store brand (kirkland) so much better!

Ya, we had a membership to Sam's for convenience also. Now we are closer to a Costco and I am glad. But we just got the Costco card so I don't have too much experience to give any speicific reasons why I like Costco better. But I am pretty sure the cooler people go to Costco.:)

Costco for sure! They are FINALLY building one here in Colorado Springs, which is why we've had a Sam's membership for 3 years. We absolutely plan on becoming Costco members when it opens this winter, and NOT renewing our Sam's membership next Spring. Both have their advantages, but Costco seems to have a larger variety of options and better quality food and products.

I need your email address again. I can't find it anywhere, and thought I'd put it in my address book, but didn't! I also want your home address for the sake of Christmas cards, etc. :) Will you email me when you a sec? valeriandersen@juno.com. Thank you, dear! Love your blog, by the way!

Costco for sure!!! It's kind of like Target vs. Walmart. :)

P.S. Dr. D* still asks about you and is wondering if you are moving back!! :) Hope all is well.

I try not to "feel" the buildings. I just go in their to shop. They both look pretty structurally sound though if that helps you.

I prefer Costco I just like their products better.

we like Costco! Kyle says the hot dogs are better there - what more can you need? I think it is a little bit cleaner too. Like Audra said, the cooler people go to Costco. However, I do like the quality of the photo developing better at Sam's - good thing my mom has a membership there!

Well we are lucky enough to have both right now. Cory's company pays for out Costco card and we have a Sam's club card on our own. I actually can't make up my mind! There are many things I like at both places. Costco diapers and wipes are way better than Sam's. Plus Costco puts things on sale sometimes when you get coupons in the mail. I love that. Sam's is closer to my house and I like buying their cottage cheese and cheese there. Costco didn't carry my brand of formula for Makayla so I had to go to Sam's. Anyway if I had to pick just one it would probably be Costco like everyone else! It is cleaner and they seem to be more helpful. That's my two cents.

Too late for my opinion - maybe - but I like the quality of products and I love their return policy - it is a great warranty program.

The closing of the polls left Costco the clear winner with 23 votes, Sam's Club with 3 and Undecided 4.
