Costco & Citi Visa Refund Checks

0 comments.

$37.07 is a Costco reward from having an executive membership.  I pay $110 a year, $55 more than standard membershp.  My executive membership paid for itself and it paid me $37.04.

$200.93 is Citi Bank's reward. $211.93 is a lot of money to get back, but sometimes I wonder if there are any other card (program) with a better rewards.

That's the beauty of Costco.  If you just stick with Costco, you are getting some of the best rewards available, if not the best. You don't need to do all the research.

I thought I never received this $200 check.  I had to request for a replacement. But, really... I was soo looking forward to this check.  I cannot believe I lost it without knowing.  I still think I never received it at the first place.

Sebamed, the experts in sensitive skin care, has updated a few of its cost-saving bundles, and I wanted to pass the savings along!

Besides the bundles at its in-store roadshows (the events calendar can be found here), Sebamed has several discounted bundles available for purchase on the Costco website.

Sebamed has become one of the biggest market movers when it comes to sensitive skin. The brand’s ultra-gentle formula is safe and effective. For more than 60 years, the brand has provided relief for those suffering from delicate skin conditions, including rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, acne, and dermatitis. Sebamed is even coveted by those looking to maintain healthy and glowing skin.

Costco Shopping - March 23, 2017

I was excited to see SPAM on sale.  I don't know why a lot of people mock SPAM.  It's perfectly fine if you don't like SPAM.  But, you don't have to mock us.  None of my female friends, past and present, liked SPAM.  But, it was more than that.  When I told them I liked SPAM, they all made a puke face and said "Yuck". They seemed to take away points because I liked SPAM. Maybe that's why they didn't stick around... because I'm a SPAM lover.  SPAM, to me, is a must have item at my house. I crave SPAM every several months, and I must have some.  This 8 pack will last a few years.  Girls may come and go, but I will have these low sodium SPAMs in my cupboard, telling me everything will be fine.

Coupons saved $24.50 today.

Chef's Cut Beef Jerky was really good. I finished the whole bag in two days.  I may buy one more.  This was one of the best jerkies I have ever tasted.

I always buy jarlsberg cheese from Costco whenever there is a coupon.  This is an amazing buy.

Toiliet papers, glad food containers, shampoo, and conditioners were all on sale. It was a fun Costco shopping.

Happy new year

It was my first Costco shopping of 2017.  I didn't buy anything special.  Coupons saved $29.40.  Protein bars are for work.  Apples and green blends are for juicing.  I freeze naan bread which they will last about six months.  I am not quite sure if Focus Factor works.  But, at the same time, I am afraid to get off it.

Keeping Costco Spinach Fresh - Rubbermaid Containers

0 comments.

Dec

Mery Christmas!

I still live alone.  And I still buy food in bulk at Costco. 

I can make a big bag of Costco spinach to last solid 7 days.  I keep them crispy fresh until I finish the whole bag.  Recently I improved my vegetable storage system with a new set of 3 Rubbermaid containers at Costco.  I am not sure if they are still available at Costco. They were $15 or less for 3 containers (6 pieces).  That's a pretty good price.  They will pay for themselves in a few month.

For a large bag of Costco spinach, I need all three containers.  I put 2 sheets of paper towels at the bottom of each containers.  This system keeps my Costco spinach (& other vegetables) last a lot longer.

This saves my time and money - and elevate my life style.

Merry Christmas, everyone.  Now I get back to massive eating.

This is important.  I wanted to double check with some of you.

Starting tomorrow, your AmEx/Costoco card will stop working PERIOD. Don't get confused and think you can still use your AmEx/Costco card at other places outside of Costco. 

Your card will stop working completely.  According to AmEx website, you cannot even access your web account starting tomorrow (June 20, 2016).

Good luck.

Takeya Thermoflask Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle 40 oz (Twin Pack)

You pay less at Costco for 2 bottles, compared to a sinlge bottle from Amazon.

If you are lucky enough to find these Takeya Thermoflasks at your local Costco, just so you know, these are really good price.  This twin pack was $34.99.  Usually a single canister goes for $35.  These high quality canisters keep cold drinks cold for 24 hours, and hot drinks hot for 12.  I haven't used it yet, but I believe this is a good buy that will not be repeated.

I bought the twin pack and gave one to my boss that made him very happy.  I know, I have no shame.  So, I bought a thermo canister I've always wanted AND kissed my boss' ass at the same price.

This is why I shop at Costco frequently.  I never know what I'm going to find. 

Amazon is selling the identical bottle for $32.18 (plus shipping). 
So, you pay less at Costco for 2 bottles, compared to a sinlge bottle from Amazon.

Oh boy, I am excited about the turkey I'm going to bake in a few days.  I decided to take a short-cut on side dishes - I bought them all pre-made.  I am not done shopping yet.  I still need some snacks, a pie, and drinks.

The turkey is 20 lb.
