Costco Instore Shopping vs SuperStore PC Insiders Pickup, Which Is Better?
With Costco, I've always hated going to their stores to shop because Costco is a royal pain to shop in with everything scattered, big long lines, crowded parking, and enormous lines just to fill up gas there, not to mention the enormous return lines. I've also always hated how Costco member's littered their shopping cart all over the parking lots. It's not hard to be courteous, people!
I also have no ability to search what is in store at Costco like I can now do at every SuperStore, Loblaws, No Frills etc. This makes shopping enormously painful at Costco from wasting time.
With the SuperStore PC Insiders membership, I now have free unlimited pickup orders where SuperStore employees shop for the items I can search for on their app and take my time comparing to see if prices and point offers are good. I don't have to waste enormous amounts of time going on the store, I just drive to the parking stop at my chosen time slot and they bring it out. Whereas Costco would take an hour at least, I would only be at Superstore a few minutes.
Costco isn't even the lowest prices on a lot of products if you buy on sale and especially if you have PC Points offers. So is there really any point to keeping a Costco membership other than big ticket items like a TV? But even then, I could just buy Costco TVs using their website without paying for a membership. It just seems pointless to be a Costco member when SuperStore has greatly improved what it is like to shop for groceries.
