Does Costco sell bags, and do they ever go on sale?
For those that purchase from Amazon, share some links.
Will need to buy some eventually.

I recently got some Freshlocker rolls which seem to be pretty good - https://www.amazon.ca/Freshlocker-Vacuu ... reshlocker - which were on sale at that time. Other bags I've been looking at but didn't buy (as I have two 50' rolls of each 8" and 11" so it will last me a while) yet are the ones from OutofAir as they have near perfect reviews on Amazon.com - https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B06XG9 ... IBSUI&th=1.

I got something called Houseables from Amazon because they were on a lightning deal. I've had a few seal fails, all but one are my fault for being cheap and not leaving enough bag to properly seal. I did have one that failed after I took it out of the freezer, not sure why. Otherwise, they've been great.

I also recommend 11" rolls over 8" rolls. I've had a few issues trying to get steaks/porkchops/sausages into the 8" ones.

Thanks OP picked one up in store today.

Had an old Foodsaver that we put in storage when we moved to a new home a couple years ago. It didn't survive the cold so was looking at eventually getting a new one.

This one is quite a bit different and I had to actually read the instructions on how to use it haha. But after bagging a bunch of meat tonight it works great and it's quite easy to use.

Yes, Costco sells the Foodsaver bags in a box usually containing a couple of 12” rolls, an 8” roll and some premade 8” bags, IIRC. They have gone on sale for about $30 a box a couple of times a year.

this is a great unit, you can use accessories with it which i use frequently, i.e tupperware container, wide mouth jar sealer, ziplock bags etc.

I would suggest people look for deals on amazon.ca which were pretty good just in december and seem to go on frequently. Costco roll bundle isnt really the best value (even when on sale).

Actually it's 99.97 in Kanata as well. When I did a price adjustment, the lady said they were being discontinued. 5 left in Kanata if anyone is interested.
