Guest Posts

I have so many great comments from people that all have their favorite things (or maybe things they really hate) about Costco, that I thought it would be nice to give them a little more space to write and share their thoughts and opinions.

If you are interested, here are some things to keep in mind about guest posts to

  1. The topic can be anything Costco related: something funny you saw or heard while you were shopping, a great product or a totally lousy one, a Customer Service story (good or bad), an experience with a Costco service, anything at all about Costco.
  2. While I will be the first to admit that some of my posts can get pretty long, your post doesn’t need to be more than just a well thought out paragraph or two but it can certainly be longer if you want.
  3. I do ask that if you are writing about a product you put in plenty of details and definitely include the item number, date of purchase, and the price. Same goes for services – price, when you used the service, and the name if it was a third party contractor.
  4. If you have your own blog or website, please feel free to include a link or two to your blog.
  5. Also, when you send me your post include your name (screen name or real-life name) and your city and state, as well as how long you’ve been a Costco member.
  6. If you want to include a picture to go with your post, you’ll need to include that (or tell me a URL where I can find it) when you email me and tell me roughly where the image should go in your post.
  7. I try to write a blog that could be read by my mom or your kid, so that means I try to keep it clean.  No swear words and no porn (obviously, because you can’t buy that in bulk at Costco).  And there are other things that I won’t accept, that fit into the category of ‘I will know it when I see it’.  I’m asking for guest posts, but I am not guaranteeing to post everything that I receive.

Once you’ve gotten your guest post all written (and spell checked), send it me to at and I will let you know if, and when, your post will be published.  You can also send me an email if you’d like to run your idea past me, before you take the time to write a whole post.

    Costco is just lost me as a customer for pulling D’Souza’s ‘America’ form their shelves and censoring what I read!

      I agree with you Ron. Costco should not be censoring what we read because of the CEO’s political affiliation. If the shoe were on the other foot, liberal/ democratic members would be in a uproar. Enough, is enough. Grown people need to start acting like adults… Shame, shame on Costco…

    Unbelievably difficult. Can’t find the Contest place to add a pin #. What a waste of time—get it together Costco. In the meantime, I’ve taken your 4 question survey twice and gotten no where……………………?????

    Citrucel Powder-No Longer at Costco? Can anyone comment on why Costco is no longer carrying Citrucel powder? They now have Citrucel tablets but not the mix. I have been to three locations and it seems to have been very recently removed. I don’t see that it is available online, either.

    why are you still handing out entry forms after June 6 when the last day to enter a pin is June 1?

    Like most of Costcos vendor choices as they usually have the best brand. Like to buy their athletic socks, but wish they would cut a deal with Nike as opposed to the cheaper Adidas socks.

    I saw these beautiful swimsuits in O magazine called Swankini swimwear and I think it said they carry this brand at Costco. Has anyone bought one?

    That noise you’re hearing is rejoicing in Tulsa, Oklahoma-looks like we’re getting a Costco! Yay!

      @Martha – LOL I must admit, even I did a bit of a cheer when I read that Tulsa was actually getting a Costco finally!

    I heard that they are building a new Costco in Leduc, Alberta, Canada. Does anyone have any information on it.

  9. 13 Wayne Oliver // 2014.04.25 at 12:20 pm

    I continue my membership because to the delicious bran muffins and for some reason, and no one knows why, they stop making them. Wish SOMEONE would tell me WHY.

    Homesick for Washington state! I am eager to transfer from store number 119 West Fargo, N.D to the rumored Lynwood, Wa. location. Do you have information on this wearhouse, for example, a possible building site, or permits being put in place? Any information you have is greatly appreciate. My family is in the Lynwood area and I want that wearhouse. I don’t want miss this opportunity. Thanks !
