    I used to have a Sam's near me, but it went out of business. I honestly haven't been to one since (about 10 years ago). I am a frequent customer and Costco and have not had any complaints!

    I like the frozen salmon at Costco and like the store better. I like both of them though.

    Sam's Club is a part of the Walmart Co. and it shares some of the same labor problems as its parent company. Costco has a great track record for how it pays and treats its employees, so that factors into our decision as a family on where to shop.

    Plus they have terrific rotisserie chickens!!:lol:

    We go to Sam's... When we were deciding they gave us a visitors pass at the Sam's guest counter.

    Another fam member thought about getting Costco so we could use each other's to go.

    I was thinking of joining Sams but one is 45 minutes away and one is across a bridge that I hate. We have another store similar to Sam's and Costco that is closer. We got a "free 60 day pass" but we have not used it yet.

    Sam's Club is owned by the same parent company as Wal-Mart. I haven't looked into their business practices, but I try to give that company as little of my money as possible.

    Right now, Costco has these wonderfully wrapped, good-sized Ghirardelli chocolate (plastic) metallic gift buckets in a pretty blue or red for only $14.69. They make wonderful gifts. I got one for each of my two mentors at work.

    I like Costco. We don't have Sam's Club, but we do have Wal*Mart (which is their sister store). I go to Wal*Mart to purchase things I can't buy at Costco.

    To be honest, though, my favorite store is Target! :blush:

    :yeahthat:

    I love Costco and Target. I go to Target probably at least twice a month. It's definitely my go-to store.

    I love Target too & I live across the street from the nicer of the two in my area. There's another location several minutes away. I like just going just to go for no reason, but that's dangerous for me! I plan on just browsing or getting just a couple of things & I end up spending $50.
