Dear Costco

Costco, leader of wholesale stores, at this time of year when love is in the air, i want to take a moment and tell you how much you mean to me. You are the greatest of all the wholesale stores; from your scrumptious food court, your great samples, and cheap priced 5x7 hour photos, all the way to your amazing return policy. oh how i love you.
when i turned 18 and could finally get my own card on the Eric Billings Attorney Business account my wallet's card holding slips were made complete. whole summers worth of after surfing meals have been provided by your samples, college houses bare refrigerators have been revived, gas has been filled at cheap prices ($2.07 yesterday!), and now diapers are stockpiled for months at a time. Costco i love you.
Thanks for everything and keep those $1.50 hebrew nationals and a drink coming.

Love your devoted customer-
Ashley


Yesterday, i brought back my camera of the last two years to costco because it had been having some technical difficulties, and they took it. no questions asked. they gave me a large chunk of money on a costco cash card and let me go buy a new one, a better one mind you, for less than the original one cost. i am a happy camper, it sort of makes the annoyance of everyday life- like velzy barfing again for no apparent reason and our garbage disposal blowing up a little less painful!

IS THIS A JOKE? I JUST RETURNED MY CAMERA OF 2 YEARS A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO WITH THE RECEIPT BECAUSE THE DOOR TO THE MEMORY CARD BROKE!!!! I TOLD THE GUY HOW LONG I HAD HAD IT AND THAT I HAD DROPPED IT A COUPLE OF TIMES. HE SAID I WAS THE FIRST PERSON THAT HAD EVER TOLD THE TRUTH! I GOT $440 BACK AND BOUGHT A BETTER CAMERA FOR $240 SO NOW I HAVE ALL THIS STORE CREDIT! IT WAS LIKE CHRISTMAS! I LOVE COSTCO TOO! THEIR POLICY IS "NO QUESTIONS ASKED!" I ACTUALLY THINK HE WAS ANNOYED THAT I WAS EXPLAINING WHAT HAPPENED. HE JUST WANTED TO DO THE RETURN AND GET ON WITH HIS DAY. I ALWAYS BUY MY ELECTRONICS THERE AND KEEP THE RECEIPT AND ALL THE PACKAGING. AMAZING.

Tonya- remember when you never even used to go to costco? you seriously owe me for getting you into it.

Ditto Ash!!!

Okay...no Costco nearby. I'm feeling left out. So cool that they hooked you up on the camera.

That picture of Velzy with the bag on is great!! Don't you love how kids get excited over the most simple things.

I never knew about that return polcy. So you have to keep the packaging and the receipt and you get it replaced? Nice!

PS I love the love letter!

I NEED A COSTCO card!!! waaaah!!!!
I just thought today I have to talk my friend here into taking me again, now I really need to go!

TRADER JOES?????? you are seriously the luckiest girl in the world! that is my all time favorite place to shop, mostly b/c I love food THAT much. We have to fly to vegas or beg people to brign us TJ food in order to get some anymore.

I generally stay away from hot dogs, but the other day I too indulged in a Hebrew National. Just the fact that they are $1.50 with a drink would be enough. But they are delish.

Congrats on the new cam!
