I am not even sure if this $50 would make up for the cost inflation of buying $250 items from Costco Grocery.

(For those unaware, all of the prices on Costco Grocery are marked up from the in-store prices, often very significantly - we're talking 20%-30% markup. If you were to buy $250 worth of things on Costco Grocery I would not be surprised at all to find the bill in-store to come out below $200). TL;DR - Costco Grocery is a ripoff.

No true....many things cost the exact same. Just a few examples...Kirkland Almond Butter, Redpath sugar, Kirkland Salt/Pepper...and many other things are only marked up 5-10%.......

I don't know the in-store prices of those somewhat-fringe items so I can't comment on if you are making a true or false statement, but all you have to do is go through the weekly flyer (which lists the in-store prices - https://www.costco.ca/coupons.html) to see the average markups are in the 20 - 30% range.

Kirkland Toilet Paper - in store, is $16.49. Costco Grocery, $21.49. Markup = 30%.
Lavazza Crema E Aroma Coffee, 1 kg - $10.99 vs 12.99, Markup = 18%
Ocean Spray Craisins - $9.49 vs $12.49, Markup = 31%
NaturSource Tamari Almonds, 950 g - $9.49 vs $11.49, Markup = 21%

I stopped there.

I had to take out some Bounty Paper Towels, they show up as Costco Grocery but didn't apply.

They’re usually 20-30% markup. Just ge the things on sale. Or heavy items like juices. There are other items that are cheaper than regular price

Also having an issue with the code. Everything is costco grocery and subtotal > $250. Guessing we will just need to wait until they fix it.

Edit: Tried adding another box of diapers and still didn't work way past the $250 threshold.

Edit 2: I called in and they basically said clear everything out and restart and that didn't work. So basically CS are just manually processing the coupon which will take 2-4 business days.

Lots of items are the same price. We buy regularly. Other poster is right, it's better for heavier items like almond milk boxes etc. I'm sure there's a markup on some items though, as I've seen it.

The convenience outweighs the cost mostly.
Mind you if you're spending 500-1k a run then cheaper to go for sure.
Under covid going out.
Time setting up to go there. Going there. Shopping. Waiting in line to pay, packing car. Driving home unpack car.
We drive 15min each way to the Costco.
So it's a 2 hr trip generally.
Personally I like going to the Costco but don't always have time.

what's the value placed on not having to battle the hoards at the store? These groceries are delivered to your door.

I have stopped buying such a big grocery now from Costco now.
Supporting shops that suffered a lot due to lockdown is important to keep economy healthy, in your area where you are living.

In try RFD spirit can individuals flag what products have minimal/no markup (as compared to in-store prices) to maximize the deal? Asking as I never used Costco grocery before.

I see that people already compared the monthly sale items as being ~30% more expensive but other users mentioned some items are below in-store prices.

Grocery stores were never shut down, they remained open the entire time. It was the shops only selling non essentials that suffered (closed during the lockdowns).
