[Costco] Japanese A5 Wagyu Ribeye (454g) 2 Pack $279.99

Just noticed some high quality steaks were on sale from Costco, as part of their email blast for Lunar New Years related sales. $70 off seems like a solid deal for the quality you are getting compared to the prices at Famu. The steaks are stated to come from either the Gifu or Miyazaki region. Enjoy!

I noticed the same thing that no chicken legs/wings, only whole today there
1. Buy cheap, buy twice
2. Don’t buy because it’s cheap. Buy it when needed or it brings convenience/happiness/better quality in life
3. Buy now think (regret/return) later
4. If the gut says don’t tell your lady, don’t!

Just googled prices of A5 in Vancouver restaurants. Looks like 299 for 12oz.

This is 32oz for 279, so I'd say this is a good deal, but unfortunately not for me

The packs marked as "Wagyu" in the store don't look all that great from what I recall. They look like slightly more marbled regular steak. Nothing like the typical pictures of Wagyu you see on Google.

Store Wagyu is not A5. These are Japanese A5, highest grade and marbling you can get.

I don’t recall if that kingsway stuff was actual A5 though. This stuff is coming from the motherland.

Coming from a forum that insults threads regarding luxury brands but praises deals for $200+ steak, oh the irony.

They don't get a discount. Just free memberships for themselves and 3 family members.

It is meant to be shared. Not single serving per steak. The amount of fat in the meat will have you bloated up if you eat the whole thing alone

No employee discount. Costco gives a free black membership annually, so basically it's worth $120 + 2%.

Costco online Wagyu is real A5 import from Japan. Have ordered many times. Best price of anywhere that I have found. The pieces (I got stirploin) are always nice and thick so you get crust on outside and rare inside.

Dang, that actually looks really good.
