    I learned today that as of 1/2/2021 Costco will no longer cash the Executive Member's refund "checks". They can only be used for membership payment or store purchases.

    So if you have a $200 check they won't give you the "change" on a $50 purchase?

    That I don't know, and didn't even think to ask. Mea culpa.

    They did stop letting you get cash back from your debit card, when using it for payment. Sigh.

    We are on a two week Costco Niles cycle and yesterday was slightly weird. 8:30am not one single car in line for gas, zero, nada, none. I thought it might be closed, nope, just eerily vacant of customers. Oftentimes there are 5-6 cars lined up at each pump, and there are a lot of pumps.

    Costco Niles store right at 9am for old folks hour, three people in line to get in, often times there are 20-30 people. Store was well stocked, lots of everything including beef. Packs of prime or choice rib-eye/strip steaks, $7.99 choice $15.99 prime. I sorted though the choice and bought 4 huge well marbled choice strips for just under $40. Cooked two, froze two. One for dinner split, was very good, the other cooked for lunch sandwiches and salad the next day. Hard to beat the value ratio, especially if one takes the time to separate wheat from chaff.

    Costco Niles, count me a fan!

    Hey Joel. I asked and was told that you could buy a bag of candy and get the rest of the money back as change. So you just have to buy something with the refund check to get the rest back as change.

    Cool, that's what we usually do anyway.
