Warehouse Takedown: Costco vs. Sam's Club






 




Why can't I decide between Costco and Sam's Club? 

Geez Louise, why am I paying for the privilege of being in two "clubs" that only want me for my money?  It's because I'm afraid of missing out on something, that's why.  



Sam's Club has Slim-fast







  



Costco has dried mango


Sam's Club has an old guy that sings about his samples


Costco has triple chocolate cake




HOWEVER, recently I discovered something that just might tip the scale for frazzled parents shopping with children.

In the Sam's Club bathroom, inside the biggest stall is a daycare center in the form of a holding device for your squirming, begging, whining little bundle of joy.

 When little Sophia/Ethan is securely strapped into this "shopping facilitator" and handed the four lb. box of these


You can lock the stall door, crawl under it and shop undisturbed for approximately 45 minutes.  (Don't forget the 12 pack of 12 lb. muffins.)

as soon as costco gets the massive shopping carts like Home Depot with the race cars up higher, then it will permanently be "who is Sam and who cares about his club?!"

great tip, though!

Sam's Club the whole way. The Walton family (of Wal-Mart fame) can not continue to live the lives that they have grown to enjoy without your support.

Without your money there is a certain 80 year old female Walton that never worked a day in her life but instead mooched off of her father and brother (Sam) her whole life, who would not be able to pay off the local law enforcement so she could drive drunk all over town.

Show a little heart would ya'?

No Sam's Club up here - have never hear of it....but Costco gets my dollar. It's my corner store, as we live in the country and it's the last store before we head for the woods. I get some weird looks when I line up with a jug of milk and nothing else.

I was gonna point out that dried mango and chocolate cake beat slim fast and singers any day, but you may have convinced me. Go Sam!

OMG! You're so evil. It's hilarious.

Holly said...

Do you think they make those to hold a 230 lb redneck with a tendency to spend too much time in the tool aisle?

Sue said...

So funny you are.

Seriously, though, I don't even have a Sam's Club near me. But I'd probably like Costco better anyway. I love that place.

Ha Ha That is funny!! I have never seen those things in any bathroom.

We had both Costco and Sam's Club here but Costco won and Sam's closed down and left town.

The reason there is even a battle? Because Sam's Club is SOOO much closer. Am I right or am I right?

Connie said...

Seriously, that is genius. Strap the kid in (or even a cranky teenager) and shop in peace.

Anne said...

Stop it this is too funny, mostly because I'm totally on board.
