A trick for Costco Shoppers....

Sunday, October 19, 2014


     If you shop at Costco, you know that one of the best, albeit unhealthy, deals  is their hotdog special . The huge hotdog plus a soda is still only $1.50.  The other food in their café is also very inexpensive and if you're like me, you spend a lot of time, energy and cash shopping at Costco which can be very hunger-inducing.

    My Costco generally has a huge line at the Café which is often a deal breaker after doing a major shop. You can imagine my shock when I learned that there is a legitimate way to cut the line.  I often hate to share these types of secrets because, as the saying goes, you tell two friends and they tell two friends and before you know it, everyone is doing it.

    However, I'm in a giving mood today, so I'll share this amazing secret with you... Order while you are paying for your regular Costco stuff.  Tell the cashier what you want and pay for it at the same time you are buying enough toilet paper for a year. Then you just walk right to the front of the café line and show your receipt and they give you the food!

    You will thank me for this one day!

I keep hearing great things about Costco and the North Miami Beach location is really close to my apartment but I see people struggling to find parking for Costco when I'm next door at Petco so I haven't braved it yet.

WHAT?!?!? I'm going to have to do this! Although, if I were a person standing in line I would be pissed if someone cut!

I am totally thrilled to have this info. Are you sure you can go to the front of the line if you have the receipt?
